"Alan Dershowitz, attorney for President Donald Trump’s Senate trial defense, lashed out at the “two bullies” he appeared with on CNN — host Anderson Cooper and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin — for pressing him on his obvious, contradictory arguments about what constitutes an impeachable offense.
During a Monday night segment on Cooper’s AC360, Dershowitz was confronted with a 1998 clip, unearthed the day before by CNN, where he confidently argued that no underlying crime was necessary to impeach a president who “corrupts the office” and “who abuses trust and who poses a great danger to our liberty.” That archival footage appeared to directly contradict Dershowitz’s Constitutional interpretation from last Friday, when he boldly claimed on MSNBC’s The Beat that “abuse of power, even if proved, is not an impeachable offense.”
Confronted with the clip on air for the first time, Dershowitz began to mightily spin his past argument to comport with his current defense of Trump.
“Well, that’s true. You don’t need a technical crime,” Dershowitz said, while Cooper and Toobin faces betrayed serious disbelief. “That’s my position today. I’ve said right from the beginning you need criminal-like behavior akin to bribery and treason. Remember…”
“But that’s not what you said then,” Cooper pointed out."
