Dershowitz: Trump Won't Be Impeached Unless 'Massive New Information' Comes Out
Trump says 'people would revolt' if he's impeached.
In an interview with Reuters Tuesday, President Trump said he's not concerned about impeachment and he believes "the people would revolt if that happened."
The remarks came one day before Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen was to be sentenced in a federal court in New York.
In a sentencing memo released last week, federal prosecutors said Trump directed Cohen to make hush-money payments to women so they would not speak about their alleged affairs Trump in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.
On "America's Newsroom" Tuesday, Alan Dershowitz said Trump will not be impeached unless "massive new information comes out."
He said when Special Counsel Robert Mueller eventually releases his report, it will contain "lots and lots of sins," but nothing that is an impeachable offense.
"Remember, the Constitution requires treason, bribery, other high crimes and misdemeanors," Dershowitz said, calling the case for campaign finance violations related to the payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal "very, very questionable."
He noted that former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was unsuccessfully prosecuted over a similar scandal in 2008.
"I don't think we're in impeachment land," Dershowitz said. "I also don't think president's ought to be suggesting any kind of non-legal response to impeachment."
