The Dersh appeared on Tucker’s White Power Hour to provide some sober legal analysis:
“Let’s take the worst case scenario,” Dershowitz said. “Let’s assume the president of the United States was in bed with the Russians, committed treason, committed obstruction of justice. The 25th Amendment is simply irrelevant to that. That’s why you have an impeachment provision.”
The amendment, he argued, spoke to a condition of “medical or psychological incapacity.” It could not be a recourse even in the event of “the most extreme crimes, which there’s no evidence were committed,” he said. He labeled the discussions “a despicable act of unconstitutional power gabbing” and said he agreed with Carlson’s assessment that they recall “what happens in third-world countries.”
Yes, following the procedures laid out in the 25th Amendment would be the most flagrant violation of the Constitution imaginable. I see no flaws in this logic. Remember when the New York Times sent 8 journalists to do 4 stories about how this guy was allegedly receiving fewer dinner invitations at Martha’s Vineyard because of his hobby of going on cable TV to make idiotic arguments in defense of Donald J. Trump? Frankly, I feel this gripping story merited more coverage than it received.
