Dershowitz On Fox News: Andrew McCabe Attempted A ‘Coup D’Etat’

Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz told Fox News on Thursday that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's having attempted to invoke the 25th Amendment to oust President Trump in concert with the Department of Justice (DOJ) amounts to a "coup d'etat."

Speaking with Tucker Carlson, Dershowitz said that if McCabe did indeed discuss the possibility of ousting President Trump with the DOJ, then the spirit of the Constitution was clearly violated.

"If [McCabe’s comments are] true, it is clearly an attempt at a coup d’état," Dershowitz said.

The Harvard Law professor went on to say that even in the worst case scenario — Trump committing treason — neither the DOJ nor the FBI Deputy Director would be within their rights to enact a coup against the President, given that Congress has the power of impeachment.

Mueller refuses to charge and convict a Democrat or fellow FBI Agent since that time period would include himself and prove he is conducting an illegal investigation.

In some places they'd call that treason.

Prosecute him, then execute him.

Alan Dershowitz is the old school type of Democrat,you may not always agree with him but you can count on him being honest and he believes in the law and to me that makes him a good American.
