Levin on Indictment or Impeachment: Trump in 'Great Shape' Under the Law
Constitutional law attorney and "Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin said Monday on "Hannity" that President Donald Trump is "in good shape," unlikely to be indicted or impeached despite anger from the left.
Levin, who served in the Justice Department under President Reagan, said that it is legally impossible for a president to be indicted.
He added that you cannot impeach a president for "events that occurred prior" to being president -- a reference to the Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen investigations.
Levin said that precedent was set in 1873 when an impeachment attempt failed against Vice President Schuyler Colfax (R).
Colfax was accused of taking a bribe involving shares of a Union Pacific Railroad subsidiary during the transcontinental railroad boom while he was Speaker of the House. However, the alleged crimes were said to have taken place prior to his vice presidency and he was not impeached.
Levin said that, although precedent is on Trump's side, he should still be wary of "phony lists" of allegations from Congressional Democrats.
He added that Trump cannot be charged with obstruction of justice for "firing a subordinate" in ex-FBI Director James Comey.
However, Levin said the only trouble spot for Trump may be "political" investigations by the president's enemies in New York State.
Levin said Acting State Attorney General Barbara Underwood (D) and New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. (D) are considering legally pursing Trump.
He said Underwood and Vance are "political, phony prosecutors" who don't like the president.
