Constitutional Law Expert Declares Democrats Are Guilty of Abuse of Power
Constitutional law expert Randy Barnett recently appeared on Mark Levin’s show to discuss the abuse of power prior to the impeachment trial.
I’m not referring to the alleged abuse by President Trump, I’m talking about the real abuse of power from the House Democrats.
Randy Barnett told Levin that the Democrats are actually guilty of the crime in which they accused the President of committing. That crime being abuse of power.
Barnett said, “The legislature can abuse power. That is one of the reasons we have judicial review — to ensure that the legislature has not exceeded its proper powers — as it did, for example, when it passed the Affordable Care Act pursuant to its Commerce Clause power,”
“If [Democrats] were so confident in the merit of their case, they should not have been afraid of due process. The fact that they ran from the adversary system in the House indicates that they felt they would only survive, they would only get the finish line … by denying the White House, denying the president of the United States his opportunity to [defend himself].”
According to The Blaze,
In fact, Barnett said the Senate’s vote to acquit Trump was essentially a power check on House Democrats, who he said had “clearly misbehaved” and “abused their impeachment power.”
Democrats abused their power by ramming through their allegations of wrongdoing against the president, while attempting to block Trump’s defense efforts — then characterizing Trump’s defense measures as further abuses of power.
Barnett recently co-authored a book with Josh Blackman titled “An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know”.
The book features cases pertaining to many areas of the Constitution such as cases involving free speech, freedom of religion, separation of powers, and the right to bear arms. It is definitely worth getting and learning the law of our land so we are better prepared for anything that may happen in the future.
