In our continued focus on Democrats who oppose impeachment, today we focus on famous lawyer and law professor Alan Dershowitz, who makes a strong case against impeachment, again.

If journalists were remotely objective, they would praise Attorney General Bill Barr for releasing virtually the entire “Mueller report.” On the other hand, if they were objective, they would condemn Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder for his complete stonewalling of the Fast and Furious investigation. That said, the rare objective journalist Sharyl Attkisson is still working on getting the truth of the Eric Holder Justice Department’s Fast and Furious scandal (emphasis in original):Read more

As of April 2019 - we now know from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election.
