Alan Dershowitz seems to be rather optimistic for Trump’s chances against impeachment. The Washington Examiner reports:
Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Wednesday he sees no threat of impeachment against President Trump based on claims from his former lawyer that Trump directed the payoff to porn star Stormy Daniels.
“We’re far away from impeachable offense or criminal offense on the part of the president,” he said on Fox News.

Dershowitz said that while Democrats will likely clamor for impeachment, that remedy was designed for major crimes, not “minor derelictions” like the sort of campaign finance violations committed by most campaigns.
“You need a high crime and misdemeanor. Every campaign has violated some technical election law,” he said.
Dershowitz is a reassuring voice for Trump supporters after two of Trump’s close aides were convicted yesterday.
