Ken Starr Claims This Impeachment Is Not Only Unconstitutional, It's Dangerous
This impeachment against Trump is bad on multiple levels. Trump is not in Office, there was no inciting, and to top it off The Chief Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is not even presiding over this trial, because he felt it is wrong. Even lawyer Ken Starr thinks this is a bad move. He appeared on "America's Newsroom" and explained the many issues with this impeachment including the dangerous precedent Dems are setting.
He started off by making it clear how unconstitutional the proceedings were.
"Every literate member of the audience can pull the Constitution, can read the key sentence: ‘Judgment in cases of impeachment shall not extend further than removal,’" Starr said on "America’s Newsroom" on Wednesday, quoting the U.S. Constitution. "The natural reading of that ... is what impeachment was meant to be and historically has been."
Starr then went on to compare Trump to Nixon.
"In the most relevant historical precedent, that is the resignation of Richard Nixon, it was over," Starr explained. "There was no suggestion that, well, we need to continue this process and try him and disqualify him in the future because he will remain a clear and present danger."
"The Congress of that time, which was controlled by Democrats, knew full well that this was not the proper constitutional course," he added."
The Dems right now are setting a dangerous precedent of going after a president after he left Office. If they succeed in impeaching Trump they will have made it so you can go after any past politician. They basically are opening the door to attacks on people after they have left Office. But Dems seem to have no foresight here. Some say this is all to ensure Trump is disqualified from ever running for president again, but that should be left up to the American people not angry Dems that have a clear hatred for the former president. If they wanted to impeach him they should have done it while he was in Office.
