: "Is it your position that President Trump should not be impeached even if all the evidence and arguments laid out by the House are accepted as fact?"

Some were surprised when Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, agreed to join President Trump’s legal team for his impeachment trial. But keen observers weren’t; Dershowitz published an entire book in 2018 that demolished the “collusion” case for impeachment.
Even as the Democrats changed their focus to Ukraine, Dershowitz has remained steadfastly opposed to impeachment.

And the worst isn’t over for Democrats. Dershowitz’s appearance was only the warning shot: President Trump’s lawyers published their trial brief this afternoon, a 100+ page salvo attacking every one of the Democrats’ arguments for impeachment. Their very first argument? That the articles of impeachment must be...
