Mark Levin, host of Fox News’ “Life, Liberty and Levin” has spent the majority of his adult life in government, including working in the Justice Department during the Reagan administration.
Levin, who is considered an expert on the law and the constitution, believes that much of what the Special Counsel and others are attempting to do to undercut the current administration is outside of their jurisdiction.
In an article posted on his show’s Facebook page, the host and author gave 5 reasons why the accusations made against President Donald Trump are non-starters for the left.
“1. A sitting president CANNOT be indicted. That’s official DOJ policy since 1973. Neither the Special Counsel nor the SDNY(State District Court New York) nor Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein can defy that 45-year-old policy,” Levin began with.
“2. SDNY is NOT expert in campaign finance violations and neither is the Clinton appointed district judge. They rarely handle campaign finance cases.”
Levin went on to talk about how the media and politicians are pushing information from briefs, however, they are not considering the context of the rules that apply.
“3. The actual campaign rules and context do NOT include Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) or infinite other contracts, payments, arrangements, acts of a private nature, etc. as campaign contributions.”
Levin is referencing the entanglements between Trump, former attorney Michale Cohen and the women who allege that they had affairs with the president.
“4. SDNY inclusion of these charges in the Cohen plea deal was a sleazy political and PR attack against the president by an office coordinating with Mueller and aligned with Comey.”
According to the host, the SDNY new that he could push Cohen into a plea deal and that the allegations the plea is founded on would not stand up in court.
“5. As for impeachment, NDAs involving wholly private matters occurring before the president was even a candidate and completely unrelated to his office cannot legitimately trigger the Constitution’s impeachment clause. Indeed, they could not be more irrelevant.
“The history of the clause and its ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ language make it crystal clear that the office and the president’s duties are not affected in any conceivable way by these earlier private contracts. Of course, Jerrold Nadler, another NYC radical, could not care less.
“He’s more than thrilled to be an executioner in this French Revolution redux. The Constitution be damned. Meanwhile, he and the others wave around the Constitution as if they’re defending it against a tyrant. It is they who are the tyrants.”
