Allan Dershowitz Says He Won’t Represent President Trump in Senate Impeachment Trial  January 16, 2021

Harvard law school professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz has reportedly said he will not defend President Trump in a possible Senate impeachment trial following reports that he was open to backing Trump again.

Dershowitz, an expert in constitutional and criminal law, represented Trump during his first Senate impeachment trial where the president was acquitted of abuse of power and obstruction of justice charges.

In a statement to the Boston Globe, Dershowitz said he will not participate in a possible second Senate trial against the president.

“This is political theater, and I’m neither a politician or an actor, so I don’t see a role for a real lawyer to play in this show,” he said.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Dershowitz was open to the prospect of defending Trump again “in the court of public opinion” in an “unofficial capacity.”

In an op-ed for The Hil published Thursday, Dershowitz said while he found Trump’s remarks to his supporters last Wednesday before the Capitol Hill siege “disturbing,” they did not “meet the basis for removal under the Constitution.”

“Just as a president should be held to account for a violation of the Constitution, then so should the House when it exceeds its authority granted by the Constitution,” Dershowitz wrote.

Dershowitz said Democrats’ 
impeachment violated “six separate provisions of the Constitution.”

“First, it violated the First Amendment, which prohibits the government from abridging free speech. By impeaching Trump for free speech that was protected in the unanimous Supreme Court decision in the case of Brandenburg versus Ohio, the First Amendment was violated,” he explained.

Dem Whip James Clyburn: Making Black National Anthem Official US Hymn Will Help ‘Unite’ America  
by Doyle Alexander  1/13/2021

House Majority Whip James Clyburn has proposed making the “Black National Anthem” the official US hymn in an effort to “bring the country together.”

“To make it a national hymn, I think, would be an act of bringing the country together. It would say to people, ‘You aren’t singing a separate national anthem, you are singing the country’s national hymn,’” Clyburn told USA Today.

Per USA Today:

U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., wants a song about faith and resilience long revered in the Black community to become the national hymn and help unite the country after centuries of racial turmoil.

Clyburn, the House majority whip, plans to introduce a measure as early as this week that would make “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, the national hymn and give it a special place alongside the country’s anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner.” reports: In a separate effort to “unite the country,” Joe Biden said his administration will help Blacks, Latinos, Asians and Native Americans rebuild and reopen their small businesses – Whites need not apply.

New Polls Show Republicans Side With Trump Over McConnell    January 15, 2021| By: TTN Staff

After violent events at the Capitol last week left five dead many people saw it as the end of the Trump era. It was only days until House Democrats realized their long-waited obsession and voted to impeach Trump a second time. Now, the trial will head to the Senate where Democrats will do their best to sway Republicans to join their side and vote to convict the President. While many Republican Senators are expected to remain loyal to Trump and oppose impeachment the top Republican’s plan isn’t as easy to predict.

Reports that Mitch McConnell supports Trump’s impeachment have been swirling for the better part of a week. However, McConnell’s support could come at a dangerous price as polls are showing that most Republicans do not blame Trump for the Capitol riot and ultimately want to see him in the White House again.

Republicans across the U.S. are siding with President Trump over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — big time — according to a new Axios-Ipsos poll.

Townhall reports:

Okay, I get it. They’re Trump voters. They’re not leaving, but other polls are also showing the changes that have occurred in the base. When it comes to choosing between Mitch McConnell and Trump, GOP voters break for Trump. It’s not shocking at all. It’s why McConnell’s alliance with Senate Democrats here on impeachment could be a monumental blunder. Does the Capitol Hill riot change the situation? No. As of now, and as it will be until the next election in 2024, Donald J. Trump is bound to be the nominee should he decide to run again. Also, the so-called Trump Republican wing is numerous in their millions — and has the ability to truly chop the more traditional GOP at the knees if the latter does stuff like, I don’t know — support the impeachment of Donald Trump

Big majorities of Republicans still think Trump was right to challenge his election loss, support him, don’t blame him for the Capitol mob and want him to be the Republican nominee in 2024, Margaret Talev and David Nather write.

The survey shows why Trump could run again in 2024 (and possibly win) if he isn’t convicted — or banned from holding federal office — by the Senate. It also shows the peril and opportunity for institutionalists like McConnell trying to reclaim the GOP.

In addition, it helps explain why a majority of House Republicans voted against certifying the election, and against impeachment.

Mitch McConnell may want to reconsider his stance on impeachment because it’s clear America is not ready to let go of Trump.

SO...Knowing it sets a "DANGEROUS PRECEDENT" you do it anyway....That says volumes about your INTEGRITY....


Jack Dorsey says banning Trump sets 'dangerous' precedent  By CATHERINE THORBECKE Thur, January 14, 2021

Twitter's chief executive Jack Dorsey stood by the decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform in a wide-ranging thread, but admitted that the action sets a "dangerous" precedent.

"I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here," Dorsey wrote on Twitter Wednesday evening. He added that the decision was made "with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter."

Twitter announced last Friday that it had permanently suspended the president's account in the wake of his supporters violently rioting at the U.S. Capitol building, resulting in the death of five people.

Trump had some 80 million followers prior to his ban from Twitter and it was by far his most-used social media outlet to reach supporters. The clamp down on Trump's accounts stoked concerns about free speech and the power wielded by big tech even among Trump's critics.

Dorsey reflected that ultimately he believes it was the right decision for Twitter to ban the president, saying, "Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all."

At the same time, however, he said that he feels the ban is a "failure" on their part.

"That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications," Dorsey wrote. "While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us."

Banning an account limits public conversation and the potential for "clarification, redemption, and learning," Dorsey wrote. "And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation," he added.

Dorsey also acknowledged that previously if users don't agree with one social media company's rules they could just go to another service provider, but that last week this "concept was challenged" as a slew of tech giants simultaneously restricted Trump's accounts. Dorsey said he doesn't think that was coordinated, but rather companies decided for themselves and were "emboldened by the actions of others."

The CEO acknowledged that the company needs to look "critically at inconsistencies of our policy and enforcement," something many social media giants have taken heat for over the past week.

He also said Twitter was investing in an initiative that aims for an open, decentralized standard for social media. While he said this will take a while to build, he pledged transparency in the process.

Finally, Dorsey called for unity and working together toward "a more peaceful existence on earth."

"I believe the internet and global public conversation is our best and most relevant method of achieving this," the CEO wrote. "I also recognize it does not feel that way today. Everything we learn in this moment will better our effort, and push us to be what we are: one humanity working together."

Military Joint Chiefs Condemn ‘Assault’ on US Capitol and ‘Constitutional Process’- Do Not Call It an ‘Insurrection’ 
US Military | January 13, 2021 | Paul Crespo

On Tuesday, the U.S. military’s most senior uniformed leaders issued a rare message to the nation’s armed forces at a critical moment of heightened domestic tension. Less than a week after the assault on the Capitol by mostly Trump-supporting rioters on January 6, the entire Joint Chiefs of Staff issued an extraordinary statement affirming Joe Biden as the lawfully-elected president-elect.

They also condemned last week’s violent riot inside the Capitol as “a direct assault on the U.S. Congress, the Capitol building, and our Constitutional process.”

The statement was signed by America’s most senior general, Mark Milley, and the entire Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), which consists of the military heads of each service branch (now including Space Force) and the National Guard Bureau. The message from the eight general and flag officers was short but pointed.

It opened with a reminder of the role the U.S. Armed Forces have played in protecting the American people and the Constitution for almost 250 years, and the trust they have earned. It also reinforces that the “U.S. military will obey lawful orders from civilian leadership,” and “remain fully committed to protecting and defending the Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

In its more misreported section, the statement also said:

We witnessed actions inside the Capitol building that were inconsistent with the rule of law. The rights of freedom of speech and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition and insurrection.

While some media such as USA Today and NBC News blog immediately jumped to report that the Joint Chiefs were calling the Capitol riot an “insurrection,” the JCS never explicitly stated that. The paragraph was deliberately opaque.

It called the actions inside the Capitol “inconsistent with the rule of law,” but then said separately that — as a general rule — no one has a right to resort to “violence, sedition and insurrection.” In this way, I believe, they left the interpretation open and were treading a fine semantic and legal line, similar to what I have noted previously.

The Capitol riot was clearly criminal and maybe even ‘terroristic’ in its attempt to violently intimidate and influence the political process, but it did not meet the threshold of “armed insurrection” as no one appeared armed or showed the intent to overthrow the government of the United States.

Nevertheless, the JCS warning to U.S. servicemen and women was justifiably clear:

As service members, we must embody the values of the nation. We support and defend the Constitution. Any act to disrupt the constitutional process is not only against our traditions, values, and oath; it is against the law.

Most importantly, as Defense One noted:

That the military’s senior-most uniformed leaders should feel compelled to issue such a message to the force reflects not only deep-seated concerns about the impact bitter national division may have within the force, but also a tacit recognition that the military still remains one of the most trusted organizations in an American deeply divided over its own institutions.
