The support of President D-T moves from ‘ great ‘ to ‘ not impeachable, ‘ even if it is legitimate

In a startling change from the assertion of “good” relations with Ukraine made by President Donald Trump, his defense at his Senate trial argued that a swap in U.S. military assistance for political favours — even if proven — could not be grounds for his impeachment. Trump’s defenders relied on retired professor Alan Dershowitz, a member of their team, who told senators that every politician conflates his own interest with the public interest. “It cannot be impeachable,” he declared Wednesday. Democrats pressed hard to force the Senate to call more witnesses to testify, but Republicans appeared intently focused on bringing […]
