(The Hill) Tal Axelrod - 11/10/19 07:00 AM Attorney Alan Dershowitz warned that Americans should be frightened" of the Houses impeachment investigation accusing Democrats of trying to create crimes out of nothing." Whether youre from New York or the middle of the country you should be frightened by efforts to try to create crimes out of nothing" Dershowitz said Sunday on John Catsimatidis radio show. Well I spent the afternoon yesterday searching the federal criminal statutes from beginning to end. I couldnt find the crime." The Houses impeachment inquiry was launched in September amid Democratic concerns that Trump leveraged $400 million in military aid to pressure Zelensky to publicly open an investigation on unfounded corruption allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden a top political rival. The White House has repeatedly blasted the House investigation as a witch hunt and decrying Democrats efforts as unhinged last week after they voted to formalize the inquiry. First they made up collusion… I searched the statute books. Theres no crime of collusion… with a foreign country. After that they said obstruction of Congress" Dershowitz said. In a desperate effort to try to find crimes committed by President Trump theyre just making it up. And that means we are all in danger."
