Dershowitz, Concha slam media fueling calls for Trump's impeachment

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz says impeachment “isn’t constitutionally permissible,” and members of the liberal media should stop calling for Democrats to impeach President Trump.

“I stand up for civil liberties no matter who the president is,” Dershowitz, a Democrat who endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for president in 2008, said Wednesday night on “Hannity.”

“If Hillary Clinton had been elected president and they were trying to impeach her, I would’ve written a book called ‘The Case Against Impeaching Hillary Clinton.’ Congress can’t impeach President Trump. The Constitution provides criteria for impeachment; treason, bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors.”

DERSHOWITZ, TRIBE SPAR OVER IMPEACHMENT: YOU’D HAVE ‘GONE APOPLECTIC’ IF CLINTONS RECEIVED SAME TREATMENT

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in recent weeks has tried to tamp down members of her party clamoring to impeach the president over the Russia investigation, to little avail.

The Hill media reporter Joe Concha said Democrats calling for impeachment, such as South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, have not been “aligned with the American people.”

Concha cited a Quinnipiac poll Wednesday that stated only one-third of Americans thought Congress should launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump. He cited the tense confirmation hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his appointment to the Supreme Court.

“Remember the Kavanaugh hearings and what that did from a ratings perspective across the board. It would be like a steroid shot for these networks that are struggling right now post Mueller report because they’re not trusted and there’s fatigue around these sorts of things,” Concha said on “Hannity.”

The same Quinnipiac poll also showed that 69 percent of American voters believed any sitting president should be subject to criminal charges, while 24 percent said a president should be charged with crimes after he or she leaves office.

“I want to make sure every American, conservative, liberal, centrist, right, or left supports the Constitution and supports civil liberties no matter who the target is because today it’s a Republican, tomorrow it can be a Democrat, the day after tomorrow it can be you,” Dershowitz cautioned. “Preserve your constitutional rights and civil liberties and don’t let politics interfere with civil liberties and constitutional law.”

Concha also pointed to what he called a double standard in media coverage of the 2020 elections, calling out NBC’s host Rachel Maddow, one of five moderators picked by the network for an upcoming presidential primary debate.

“Objective people look at her moderating a debate and saying, wait a minute, that can’t happen, because in 2016 she moderated a debate and went up on stage on national television and hugged Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton on stage,” Concha said.

He compared it to the perception of certain Fox News journalists. “Picture Shannon Bream or Martha MacCallum doing that to a Republican candidate. The apocalypse would look like nothing compared to what the reaction would be.”

Dershowitz urged the media to put party politics aside and “get back to Walter Cronkite-type journalism where people can trust what they hear in the media. Today that’s just not the case,” he said.

Penn Jillette talks about ‘hardcore’ method to keep weight off: report

Rep. Ilhan Omar fires back at VP Pence for saying she ‘doesn’t know what she’s talking about’ amid Venezuela remarks

Penn Jillette, half of the magic duo Penn & Teller, said in a recent interview that if you take health advice from a Vegas magician, “you are an idiot,” but said his method of fasting 23 hours a day has proven effective.

Jillette told The Los Angeles Times that his health was poor when he reached 330 pounds. He was on six different medications a 90 percent heart blockage. He said he took to the internet and sought ways to avoid surgery.

“Don’t believe those articles that say, “Just cut your portions down by 20 percent,” he told the paper. “Skip dessert” or “Cut out sodas.” Yeah, that seems logical. But it doesn’t work for me — I want to lose a pound a day. I want to see the scale go like this [points straight down]. So I went for a radical change in diet — whole-food plant-based, hard-core vegan, vegetables, no processed food, no sugar. And I limited my eating to just an hour a day, so I’m always fasting 23 hours.”

He said the lifestyle is obtainable by anyone, but they just have to be committed. “Decide it’s going to be hard and do it like the other things that are hard in your life.”

He said he cut out all processed food and eliminated pasta and bread. He said it took him three years not to want a chocolate shake. He said he still exercises but less than before.

O.J. Simpson says Kris Jenner relationship rumors are ‘bogus’

O.J. Simpson says Kris Jenner relationship rumors are ‘bogus’

O.J. Simpson took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to dispel rumors that he had fathered Khloe Kardashian with Kris Jenner, a rumor he says is being pushed by a man who is falsely claiming that he was his manager.

“But never – and I want to stress never – in any way shape or form had I ever had any interest in Kris, romantically, sexually, and I never got any indication that she had any interest in me,” Simpson said in a video posted on his Twitter page. “So all of these stories are just bogus. Bad, you know, tasteless.”

O.J. SIMPSON JOINS TWITTER ON 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF WIFE’S MURDER

Rumors that Simpson is Khloe’s biological father have persisted long before the famous reality TV series. The rumor even had been the subject of a National Enquirer report and an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which featured Khloe questioning whether she was adopted.

“Khloe, like all the (Kardashian) girls, I’m very proud of, just like I know Bob would be if he was here. But the simple facts of the matter is she’s not mine.”

Simpson blamed the rumor on Norman Pardo, a guy who “the media love to say is my manager.”

“I’ve always managed my own affairs, and I’d like to think very successfully,” Simpson said.  “So, when you see these guys like Norm, and these guys claim that they are my manager, it’s just not true. I’ve may have done a deal here or there with them, but none of these guys were anything remotely like a manager for me.”

Simpson has generally kept a low profile since his release from prison in October 2017 for robbery and kidnapping over an attempt to steal back some of his sports memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room.

He appeared to join Twitter or the first time Friday, under the username @TheRealOJ32 — referencing the jersey number he wore — nearly 25 years to the day after his ex-wife’s murder.
