Dershowitz Has Bad News for Pelosi’s ‘Impeached Forever’ Claim

Dershowitz takes Pelosi to school and crushes her dreams of impeaching Trump forever

By Sophie O’Hara | January 23, 2020

Last week, Pelosi took a break from “praying” on Trump’s impeachment to appear on Bill Maher’s show where she proudly declared that President Trump is “impeached forever” and then celebrated her achievement by giving Maher a “fist bump.”

Watch the video:

Sorry, honey, that’s not how the law works, which Alan Dershowitz was quick to point out on Fox News a few nights ago.

Dershowitz explains that the impeachment is simply a presentation by a grand jury, and in the event that the Senate acquits him of the charges, the “impeachment” will disappear.

Dershowitz said, “Nancy Pelosi doesn’t understand what impeachment is. What she has said is even if the president’s acquitted, the impeachment stands. No. That’s like saying that if a person is indicted and the jury acquits 12-0 in five minutes, he’s still indicted. No. The impeachment disappears. The impeachment is only a grand jury presentment.”

He later added, “[I]f Pelosi maintains the position that impeachment is an end in and of itself, you need full due process. You need an adversarial system. You can’t go and announce, he’s been impeached and it’ll be impeachment hanging over his head for the rest of his life.” [Brietbart]

So, no Pelosi, Trump will not be “impeached forever.”

Watch the video:


This impeachment process has had one folly after another, and it’s pretty sad that for someone who’s been in politics as long as Pelosi that she doesn’t understand a simple legal process.

How anyone can take this circus that Democrats call an “impeachment trial” is beyond me…
