A President cannot be Charged with Obstruction of Justice for exercising his Constitutional Power

Alan Dershowitz: ‘You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power’

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz on Monday said President Trump was within his rights as commander in chief when he fired former FBI director James Comey, and warned Democrats trying to take him down on obstruction of justice charges that they won’t succeed.

“You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and his constitutional authority to tell the Justice Department who to investigate, who not to investigate. That’s what Thomas Jefferson did, that’s what Lincoln did, that’s what Roosevelt did. We have precedents that clearly establish that” Dershowitz told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Monday morning.

Despite arguments from Democrats that special counsel Robert Mueller is building a case for obstruction.

“The president cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under the Constitution’s Article II and has every right to express his view of any case.

Trump tweeted that he “had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!”
