Democrats Guilty Of Abuse Of Power According to Constitutional Law Expert

More News For You

Randy Barnett, who is a Constitutional law expert, appeared on Mark Levin’s show to discuss the abuse of power by the Democrats prior to the impeachment trial.

According to Barnett, the Democrats were guilty of the very crime they accused the President of committing. The crime of 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.
In a book co-authored by Josh Blackman titled “An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know” Barnett refers to cases pertaining to many areas of the Constitution such as cases involving free speech, freedom of religion, separation of power, and the right to bear arms. It is definitely worth the read if you are looking to learn the law of our land so we can be better prepared for similar cases in the future.
