Experts clash over trump of the prosecution.

Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., one of the seven democratic impeachment managers in the pursuit of the President Trump before the Senate, accused Trump of trying to commit bribery in his dealings with the Ukraine, but when asked why this was one of the indictment, he did not appear to have an explanation.

Bribery is a specific crime that is mentioned in the Constitution, the discussion of the indictment. The house accused trump for alleged abuse of power-not itself a statutory crime, and obstruction of the Congress, but Crow insisted, on Sunday, the President of the attempted bribery was still guilty.

“Yes, specifically, he has tried to bribe and force to a foreign government official, in this case, the President of Ukraine,” Crow told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Then why not an item?”, host Brianna Keilar asked.

“You know, we have a look at the entire context of what happened here,” crow answered. “This is what it is. This is about the abuse of power, it is a question of compromising our national security, our troops, to undermine our free and fair elections. You know, the broad context of the pattern of this President is what is really important, and that is why we are continuing with the prosecution.

Keilar pointed out that the house had with the two of bribe abuse and best of all, if you believed that the facts supported, and that you argue from Trump’s lawyers, Alan Dershowitz, plans that the abuse of power itself, is not sufficient grounds for a charge.

On the question of whether it was a mistake, not a bribe article, Crow no, not said: “absolutely.”

Dershowitz ago appeared earlier in the program and what he said was perhaps “the most important argument” that will be made when he appears on the Senate.

“Even if everything is supposedly from the house Manager is proven or perceived, would you not rise to the level of an impeachable offense,” Dershowitz said earlier in the program, to remember that, as President Andrew Johnson was accused of, it was successfully argued that only conduct prohibited by the criminal law was intended by the fathers of the Constitution to be impeachable.
