Try telling that to Alaskans.

In the book’s introduction, Dershowitz, who is a lifelong Democrat who says he is only defending Trump based on legal arguments, further expands on extreme hypotheticals, such as if Trump colluded to let Russia “retake” Alaska, in efforts to demonstrate his perception of what the Constitution’s requirement is for something criminal.
“Assume [Russian President Vladimir] Putin decides to ‘retake’ Alaska, the way he ‘retook’ Crimea. Assume further that a president allows him to do it because he believed that Russia has a legitimate claim to ‘its’ original territory,” Dershowitz writes. “That would be terrible, but would it be impeachable? Not under the text of the Constitution.”
Yeah, well I think that the gun toting, hard drinking, easily angered citizens of Alaska might present somewhat of a challenge to anybody thinking about invading our Last Frontier.
Personally, I would think this is just hyperbole on the part of Dershowitz if I did not realize that Trump would ABSOLUTELY allow Putin to have Alaska back if it meant he could ingratiate further himself to his man crush.
And it might not be a bad idea to let our Senator Lisa Murkowski know there is talk like this before she decides how to vote on Trump’s most recent Supreme Court nominee.
There is actually at least one or two reasons that Dershowitz admits could see Trump impeached:
Dershowitz writes that impeaching Trump would be possible, though, “if he did it because he was paid or extorted.”
Well, then I think he could be impeached because it is highly likely that he is being extorted or paid off ins someway.
However, Dershowitz does not even think that there should be a Special Counsel investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia or the Russian interference in the 2016 campaign:
Dershowitz, who has often made legal arguments defending the president in the media, argues the special counsel investigation should have never began in the first place because no specific crime could be defined.
He also said the president gives him mixed reviews, adding that one of his most recent calls from Trump was “to correct something I said on television,” according to the Examiner report.
Okay, just the fact that Dershowitz is taking direction from Trump as to how he should conduct his interviews is probably all you need to know about his credibility.
Just another former independent thinker who has fallen for Trump’s line of bullshit and allowed themselves to fall into and become trapped by his web of lies.
