Democrats’ Impeachment Aims for U.S. To Be a British Parliamentary System, Says Dershowitz

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

Alan Dershowitz, representing President Donald Trump in the impeachment trial Monday night, focused his central fire on the fact that the Democrats’ Articles of Impeachment, if allowed to stand to remove the President, would overturn the most important effort of the founding fathers: to not allow the British system of parliamentary democracy to infect the American System. Over and over again he quoted Gouverneur Morris, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and others from the Federalist Papers and the reports on the debates of the framers of the Constitution, warning that removing the President with no delineated crime would destroy the Constitution and turn the country into a British-style Parliamentary system, in which a mere vote of “no confidence” could remove a President, overturning the will of the people. It is the Congress, he said that is acting as if it were “above the law.” (He quoted Rep. Maxine Waters saying “Impeachment is whatever the Congress says it is.”)
