Rep. Ratcliffe: This Fails Legally, Constitutionally, And Factually

REP. JOHN RATCLIFFE: Listen, it was very clear yesterday what we’ve been saying all along: This thing fails legally, it fails constitutionally, and it fails factually. Alan Dershowitz made very clear yesterday, before you even get to the issue of facts, this thing fails—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress both fail as legal constitutional arguments. They’re not impeachable offenses. Even before you get to the issue of facts and any witness, including John Bolton, and what he said yesterday was even if you assume everything John Bolton says is true, or what they say is in this transcript or manuscript that none of us have seen, it’s still not an impeachable offense. So again, fails factually, fails legally, fails constitutionally.
