I heard Dershowitz on the TV a little while ago. I didn't really hear it but I heard part of it, and it sounded like he said both of the charges are unconstitutional because the charges must be of those enumerated in the Constitution, and neither of the two charges alleged is found there. I think that was his first point.

Then, he explained that Abuse of Power is too broad or something; they apparently didn't stipulate exactly what the abuse is, and that's not enough. And the other one, Contempt of Congress, isn't a thing; essentially, you can't have that because it is proper to resolve disagreements with Congress only in the courts. Which entirely makes sense.

The man makes a really strong argument IMO. I don't know what all Abuse of Power encompasses, but if they weren't specific about it it seems like a non-starter.

I can see how it could DOA.
