WARNING: We are losing our youth to the progressive agenda

here is a serious problem in this country, and it’s only going to get worse and worse. Addressing it could alienate neighbors, friends, and family members. But at some point, you have to stand up and say enough is enough. This generation of young adults is critical to the future of America, but they are being lost to the progressive agenda. It’s essential that today's youth be rooted in the principles that founded this country, yet we are willing to ship them off to schools and universities that tear down the pillars of faith and distort and diminish American history. Will you stand?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

Glenn: And I want to have a conversation with you about how I believe we're losing the youth in our country to the progressive agenda. No, beyond that. Beyond that. We're losing them to flat-out darkness. And we have to work together to save them.

I want to talk to you about something that I think is a serious problem and a serious problem that is going to get worse and worse. I think we're going to lose a lot of -- we're going to lose a lot of friends. And we're going to lose a lot of -- of our children. And we're going to lose them anywhere from high school to, you know, 30. And colleges will play a role. Schools will play a role. But our churches will also play a role. And it is because I think we're talking about things. We're trying to teach them. We're not doing. We have to do things. Our churches have to be involved and doing things. It's not enough just to meet in a building and talk for three hours or one hour or 20 minutes. It's not enough.

We have to be involved. We have to actively be engaged in the things that change the world. Actively be engaged in changing ourselves. Changing our families.

Too many of our kids are growing up and they're looking at us like we're hypocrites. And why? Why is that happening? Because times have changed. A, this is a different group. The millennials are different people. They're not like us. They're not like the generation that went before us, which is the checkbook generation.

This group of -- this generation that is coming up, these millennials, they want to change the world. They're as idealistic as we used to be. Except we played within the system. They didn't grow up with the system. Everything that they grew up with was a disruption to the systems that had been built by generations before.

They're the Napster generation. They're the Apple generation. They're the i Phone generation. They have disrupted from the beginning. So they're not looking for a system that is going to help them do it. They just want to do it. They'll do it themselves.

They'll gather together in their own groups, and they'll go. What do you mean you need -- you need permission to do this? You need permits to do what? You need to get the church council together. No, let's just do it.

Our kids are going to colleges, and our kids are being deprogrammed. They're being -- they're being brainwashed. University of Berkeley California -- and not all colleges are like this. But University of Berkeley California -- they are now saying that they have to ban phrases and ideas. Phrases like, I think the most qualified should get the job, is racist. And so they're banning that. Well, you ban not just words, but thoughts, the next thing you'll be banning is books. And the step after that is a bullet to the head. That's not hypobole.

That's historic fact. Pat and I were talking -- we both taught -- we both taught at school -- I mean, at church. And we both taught Sunday school. And we both taught the teenagers. Now we're seeing these teenagers go to college, and a few of them have been lost at college.

PAT: A college you would think is pretty darn safe too.

GLENN: Yeah. They're going to a college from their church, and at the college from their church, they're turning to atheists. How is that happening? How is that happening? There are real problems, and this is happening in all of our churches with all of our kids.

Now, I think there's two groups -- this, I believe, is the chosen generation. If you don't believe that, that's fine.

This is the chosen generation. I think this generation coming up is the most valiant, and they're going to be the ones that have to -- they'll be the ones that do it. The generation before mine screwed it up. My generation, beginning of my generation, we're the ones that now have to look at it and go, okay, jeez, how are we going to fix this? We're not going to be able to fix this. It will be the one coming up right now that will fix it. They'll fix it. But we still have to make sure that they're not listening to the generation that screwed it all up. They're listening to the ideas and the principles that are eternal that built us in the first place.

And those are very unpopular ideas. And they're going to become more so. And our churches will come under attack. Mark my words. I'm doing a roundtable today with constitutional experts and experts on the Supreme Court. We're going to talk about the Supreme Court rulings that still have to come out and the ramifications of those rulings. How are they going to affect our churches? I'm telling you right now, we will lose 50 percent of our membership in our churches.

And not because of some policy, but because there just won't -- they won't be willing to stand. And not against something, but for something. I'm not against gay marriage. I'm for right of conscience.

You can't tell me -- if I can't tell you who to love, that's fine. You can't tell me what my church must accept. It's a right of conscience. It's something that we all used to understand. You didn't go to war if you were Amish or if you were -- if you were some -- in a religion that preached against war. If you were a Quaker, you could not be drafted. Period.

If you were a Catholic, they didn't have that teaching. You cannot be forced to go against your conscience. And every American should understand that. That's a fundamental bedrock principle of being an American. What you choose to do is your choice.

You can't preach that I'm going to kill a bunch of people. You can't go out and kill a bunch of people. You can't do those things. But we have different ideas, and especially when it comes to religion, my religion is what -- is what motivates me. Some people, their religion, and I mean this sincerely, their religion is global warming.

They worship the planet as if it's God. Okay. I don't have a right to ban that. I don't have a right to tell them that they can't think that way. I can speak out against it, and they can speak out against my God. Okay.

Why don't we instead leave each other alone. Why don't we instead urge people to stand up for what they believe in. Why don't we instead urge people to have a reasonable debate, a real debate, not one with name-calling, but with actual facts.

One where both sides can go, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. I didn't know that fact. That might change my argument a bit.

Isn't that the way we're supposed to behave? Not banning ideas. Not banning phrases.

We're going to lose 50 percent of our congregants. And if we're not careful, we'll lose our children. If you don't go to bed at night -- I have a 9-year-old and a 10-year-old and two 20-somethings, and I will tell you, I go to bed every night, and I pray for them. I pray that they keep their feet on the right track. I know -- there are times that I break out in a cold sweat thinking about what my children are going to have to face in this life. And I don't mean destruction or anything else. I just mean life. It's not like I used to have to deal with.

The things that they have to deal with. The evil that is out there. God help us. And God help our children.

We can't do it alone. We have to stick together. We have to teach our kids the fundamental principles, but by living them.

Let me go to -- let me go to Travis in Wisconsin. Let's take some phone calls. Hello, Travis. You're on the Glenn Beck Program.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn. I'm a big fan. I really didn't care much about all of this politics and everything that's been going on in the world until I was right around the election when Barack Obama first came into office.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And began watching your television show and you talked about things like, they're distorting history. They're changing history. And all that stuff. I thought to myself at first, I thought, well, gosh, how can you change history? It's already happened. But when you talked about the reeducation and losing the youth and all of that, it makes perfect sense. I mean, I have a daughter, she's starting college this year. I've been involved in her education for years now, doing her homework with her, involved with what they're teaching her. She brought home assignments on global warming based on articles that were written in 1997. And they're teaching that stuff as though it's fact and it's truth. The other thing is, you know, the worst part of it all is college. She's starting college this year. And I'm going to stay involve with what they're teaching her.

GLENN: Good luck.

CALLER: Because true education and critical thinking is a threat to their ideology.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

CALLER: And that's what they're teaching in college, is the ideology of liberalism, socialism, Marxism, communism. These kids are being taught that they're smarter than everyone else because they have a college, quote, unquote, education. But a real education teaches critical thinking, weighing pros and cons before you make a decision. They're being indoctrinated into an ideology that, I mean, they -- they don't weigh pros and cons when they make decisions. They make their decisions based on the ideology and how it fits with the ideology that they've been instilled with.

Anyway, my girlfriend who's got a son who was raised going to church every Sunday, raised with conservative values. He spent $40,000 on a college education -- $45,000 on a college education. He's come out an atheist. He has -- he's come out a complete socialist liberal. And it's very difficult to talk to him because he doesn't even understand the principles that you're trying to talk to him about in contrast to what they've put in his head.

GLENN: I will tell you, Travis, thank you for your call. Is there anybody within the sound of my voice that if I said, hey, I'm going to destroy your kid. I'm going to undo everything that you have worked so hard to do. I'm going to undo it all. And I'm only going to charge you $45,000.

[laughter]

Would you pay that? We're looking at college at, what will they do for the kid?

PAT: Can I give you 50?

GLENN: You can give me 50. How about 75?

PAT: Okay. All right. That's even better.

GLENN: Okay. We're looking at college and what they'll do for your kids. Let's look at the actual results. What are they doing for your kids? What are the odds of them going in and being debt-free, of them going in and getting a great job because of that -- of that degree, and look at how they've done it. What they do is they bring you in, and they've taught the kids -- we have -- we have -- we've allowed them to learn that they're special. They're absolutely special.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Okay. Now, at their most vulnerable point, when they move out away from mom and dad, and they're the most afraid and in a society that is pretty damn scary -- I don't know if I'll get a job. And I'll be in all this debt. What does the University say to them? You're so special. In fact, you're so special, you're smarter than mom and dad. You know things more than mom and dad. So when mom and dad have said, you have to buckle down. You have to learn these things. You have to learn these principles that we have -- they look at mom and dad, who are now no longer cool, they're looking at mom and dad who are sitting there and they're trapped in their dead-end life -- I don't want to live like mom and dad -- and they've gone to church with mom and dad, but that doesn't really affect mom and dad.

I see mom and dad breaking the principles that they talk about in church all the time. They're not really living it. They're not changing the world. They're not feeding the poor. They're not doing these things. You know what, this will feed the poor. These ideas, yeah, they're radical, but they will feed the poor, because I want to do something about it. And the way I can do it is I'm special. All I have to do is hold a sign up. All I have to do is create this new revolution. All I have to do is stand up for the things that have already destroyed us and gotten us into this debt because I'm special.

How much you willing to pay for that, mom and dad? $45,000 is not enough. I could find a place a little more expensive for you. Because what they're doing to your kids is absolutely fantastic. This is probably worth -- it's probably worth $100,000. $400,000 for four years. I mean, to really get it done right, you'll probably have to spend four years and 400 grand. It got to the point with my child, she wouldn't even talk to me on issues. We've always been able to talk about anything in my family. While she was at college, she wouldn't even talk to me. She would get so upset. She would be like, I can't even talk about it, dad. Can't talk -- where is this coming from? Hang on just a second. I've got the university on the phone. They want me to help them build a library. I can't wait to do that.

PAT: Which actually happened.

GLENN: It actually happened. After they had a rally against me at her university, they actually called to see if I could help them out --

PAT: So you were able to pay the 45, plus be disparaged, and have them hit you up for a big donation.

GLENN: I was lucky enough my daughter got a scholarship, so she paid for her own way. Congratulations. And I didn't have to pay -- I think maybe I paid a year.

PAT: So you just got disparaged, and they hit you up for extra cash on the side.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. And they gave me the opportunity to almost lose my daughter.

PAT: They indoctrinated her as well.

STU: So don't make us wait. How much did you give?

JEFFY: Thank you. How big is the library? How big is it?

GLENN: Oh, I gave them something quite large.

STU: I bet you did.

[laughter]

GLENN: I just -- I just want you to know, and I can't go into specifics here because humans are involved. People are involved. Friends are involved. But Pat and I have direct stories right now with kids who have been lost. And it breaks our heart. We don't even -- these are great, valiant kids. And it's not like -- you know, it's one thing to say, you know, I don't believe in mom and dad's church. I'm going to find another church. No, no, no. They no longer believe in God.

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere discussed recent reports that former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, wasn't the only family member to capitalize on his connections to land an unbelievably lucrative job even though he lacked qualifications or experience.

According to Peter Schweizer's new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite," Joe Biden's younger brother, Frank, enjoyed the benefit of $54 million in taxpayer loans during the Obama administration to try his hand at an international development venture.

A lawyer by training, Frank Biden teamed up with a developer named Craig Williamson to build a sprawling luxury resort in Costa Rica, which claimed to be on a mission to preserve the country's forests but actually resulted in the decimation of thousands of acres of wilderness.

The then-vice president's brother also reportedly earned hundreds of thousands of dollars as the front man of a for-profit charter school company called Mavericks in Education.

The charter schools, which focused on helping at-risk teens, eventually failed after allegations of mismanagement and a series of lawsuits derailed the dubious business venture.

Ryan: Bernie at the disco

Photo by Sean Ryan

Saturday at El Malecón, we waited for the Democratic socialist. He had the wild white hair like a monk and the thick glasses and the booming voice full of hacks and no niceties.

Photo by Sean Ryan

The venue had been redecorated since we visited a few nights before when we chatted with Castro. It didn't even feel like the same place. No bouncy castle this time.

Photo by Sean Ryan

A black curtain blocked the stage, giving the room a much-needed depth.

Behind the podium, two rows of mostly young people, all holding Bernie signs, all so diverse and picturesque and strategic.

Photo by Sean Ryan

Lots of empty seats. Poor showing of Bernie fans for a Saturday afternoon. At one point, someone from Bernie's staff offered us seats in the audience, as if eager to fill up those seats however possible.

There were about 75 people in the dancehall, a place built for reunions and weddings and all those other festivities. But for a few hours on Saturday, August 10, 2019, it turned serious and wild for "Unidos Con Bernie."

Photo by Sean Ryan

People had been murmuring about Sanders' speech from the night before at Wing Ding. By all appearances, he had developed a raving lust to overthrow Trump. He had even promised, with his wife just out of view, that, were he elected, he'd end white nationalism in America. For good.

El Malecón lacked its previous air of celebration. It had undertaken a brooding yet defiant spirit. Media were sparse. Four cameras faced the podium. Three photographers, one of whom had been at nearly all the same events as us. A few of the staffers frowned at an empty row of chairs, because there weren't that many chairs to begin with.

At the entrance, Bernie staff handed out headsets that translated English to Spanish or Spanish to English, depending on who the speaker was. The translators stood behind the bar, 20 feet from the podium, and spoke into a lip-ribbon microphone.

Bernie's staff was probably the coolest, by far. As in, they looked cool and acted stylishly. Jeans. Sandals. Careworn blazers. Tattoos. One lad had a black Levi's shirt with lush crimson roses even though he wasn't a cowboy or a ranch-hand. Mustaches. Quirky hats. A plain green sundress. Some of them wore glasses, big clunking frames.

Photo by Sean Ryan

The outfits were distinctly Bernie. As Bernie as the tie-dyed "BERNIE" shirts for sale outside the club. Or later, at the Hilton, like a Grateful Dead cassette stand.

Immigration was the theme, and everyone in the audience bore some proof of a journey. Because America offers life, freedom, and hope.

Sanders' own father emigrated from Poland to America at 17, a high school dropout who could barely speak English. As a Jew, he'd faced religious persecution.

Within one generation, Bernie Sanders' father contributed to the highest stratum of American society. In one generation, near hopelessness had transformed into Democracy, his son a congressman with a serious chance at the presidency.

Photo by Sean Ryan

That's the beauty of America. Come here broken and empty and gutted and voiceless. And, within your lifetime, you can mend yourself then become a pillar of society. Then, your son can become the President of the United States of America!

Four people gave speeches before Sanders. They took their time, excited and nervous. They putzed. Because how often do you get to introduce a presidential frontrunner?

All the native English speakers jammed their earpieces when the woman with the kind and dark energy took the stage.

Photo by Sean Ryan

She mumbled in Spanish and did not look up and said that, when her parents died, she couldn't go home for the funeral. She fought back tears. She swallowed hard to shock herself calm. And the room engulfed each silence between every word.

It felt more like a therapy session than a political rally. A grueling therapy session at that. Was that what drew people to Bernie Sanders, that deep anguish? That brisk hope? Or, rather, the cessation of it, through Sanders? And, of course, the resultant freedom? Was it what gave Sanders a saintlike ability to lead people into the realm of the confessional? Did he have enough strength to lead a revolution?

Photo by Sean Ryan

While other frontrunners hocked out money for appearances, like the studio lights, Sanders spent money on translators and ear-pieces. The impression I got was that he would gladly speak anywhere. To anyone. He had the transitory energy you can capture in the writings of Gandhi.

Photo by Sean Ryan

I'm not saying he's right or wrong — I will never make that claim, about any of the candidates, because that's not the point of this, not the point of journalism, amen — what I'm saying is he has the brutal energy of someone who can take the subway after a soiree or rant about life by a tractor or chuck it up with Sarah Silverman, surrounded wherever he goes.

Without the slightest fanfare, Sanders emerged from behind the black curtain. The woman at the podium gasped a little. The room suctioned forward when he entered. In part because he was so nonchalant. And, again. That magnetism to a room when a famous or powerful or charming person enters. Not many people have it. Not many can keep it. Even fewer know how to brace it, to cull it on demand. But several of the candidates did. One or two even had something greater.

Photo by Sean Ryan

I'll only say that Bernie had it with a bohemian fervor, like he was a monk stranded in a big city that he slowly brings to God.

"We have a President who, for the first time in my lifetime, who is a President who is a racist," he shouted. "Who is a xenophobe and anti-immigrant. Who is a sexist. Who is a religious bigot. And who, is a homophobe. And, what is very disappointing is that, when we have a President, we do not necessarily expect to agree with him, or her, on every issue. But we do believe that one of the obligations is to bring people to-geth-ah. As Americans."

Photo by Sean Ryan

After listening silently for several minutes, the audience clapped. Their sweet response felt cultish. But, then again, what doesn't feel cultish these days? So this was cultish like memes are cultish, in a striving-to-understand kind of way.

"The essence of our campaign is in fact to bring people together," he said. "Whether they're black, or white, or latino, or Native American, or Asian-American. We understand that we are Americans."

At times, this meant sharing a common humanity. Others, it had a slightly more disruptive feel. Which worked. Sometimes all we want is revolution. To be wild without recourse. To overthrow. To pass through the constraints of each day. To survive. The kind of rowdy stuff that makes for good poetry but destroys credit lines. Sanders radiated with this intensity, like a reclusive philosopher returning to society, from his cave to homes and beds and fences and maybe electricity.

Photo by Sean Ryan

But, as he says, his revolution would involve healthcare and wages and tuition, not beheadings and purges and starvation.

Seeing the Presidential candidates improvise was amazing. They did it constantly. They would turn any of their beliefs into a universal statement. And Sanders did this without trying. So he avoided doing the unbearably arrogant thing of pretending to speak like a native Guatemalan, and he looked at the group of people, and he mumbled in his cloudy accent:

"My Spanish — is not so good."

Photo by Sean Ryan

This is the same and the opposite of President Trump's Everyman way of speaking English like an American. Of speaking American.

Often, you know what Sanders will say next. You can feel it. And, anytime this happened, it brought comfort to the room.

Like, it surprised no one when he said that he would reinstate DACA on his first day in office. It still drew applause.

But other times, he expressed wild ideas with poetic clarity. And his conclusions arrived at unusual junctures. Not just in comparison to Republicans. To all of them. Bernie was the Tupac of the 2020 election. And, to him, President Trump was Suge Knight, the evil force behind it all.

"Donald Trump is an idiot," he shouted.

Photo by Sean Ryan

Everybody loved that. Everybody clapped and whooped and some even whistled like they were outside and not in a linoleum-floor dancehall.

"Go get 'em, Bernie," someone in the back shouted.

This was the only Sanders appearance with no protestors.

"Let me say this about the border," he shouted. And everybody listened to every thunking syllable. He probably could have spoken without a mic. Booming voice. Loud and clear. Huddling into that heavy Vermont slug accent.

They'll say many many things about Bernie. One being, you never had to lean forward to hear him. In person, even more so. He's less frail. More dynamic.

Photo by Sean Ryan

Despite the shoddiness of the venue, there was a sign language interpreter. Most of the rallies had a designated interpreter.

"If you work 40 hours a week you shouldn't be living in poverty," he shouted, provoking chants and applause from the audience, as if he were talking about them. Maybe he was.

An anecdote about the people at an emergency food shelf blended into the livable wage of $15 an hour. He shifted into his spiel about tuition-free college and pointed at the audience, "You're not doing well," then at the kids behind him, "they are." He craned his head sideways and back. "Do your homework," he told said.

Laughter.

Half of the kids looked like they hadn't eaten in days. Maybe it was their unusual situation, a few feet from Bernie Sanders at a stucco community center.

Before the room could settle, Sanders wove through a plan for how to cancel debt.

Did he have a solution?

Tax Wall Street, he shouted.

Photo by Sean Ryan

And he made it sound easy. "Uno dos trey," he said. "That's my Spanish for today."

A serious man, he shoved through his speech like a tank hurtling into dense jungle. He avoided many of the typical politician gimmicks. Proof that he did not practice every expression in front of a mirror. That he did not hide his accent. That he did not preen his hair. That he did not smile for a precise amount of time, depending on the audience. That he did not pretend to laugh.

Photo by Sean Ryan

He laughed when humor overtook him. But it was genuine. With none of the throaty recoil you hear in forced laughter.

"I want everyone to take a deep breath," he said. And a palpable lightness spread through the room, because a deep breath can solve a lot of problems.

Photo by Sean Ryan

Then he roused some more. "Healthcare is a human right," he shouted. "A human privilege," he shouted. He told them that he lives 50 miles from the Canadian border in Burlington, Vermont, and healthcare works better up north.

Each candidate had a bad word, and Sanders' was "corporate."

Photo by Sean Ryan

At every speech, he mentioned "corporate media" with the same distrust and unpleasantness that conservatives derive from the term "mainstream media." Another would be "fake news," as popularized by Sanders' sworn enemy. Either way it's the same media. Just different motivations that irk different people.

But the discrepancies varied. Meaning two opposing political movements disliked the same thing, but for opposite reasons.
It sounded odd, Sanders' accusation that the media were against him. The media love Bernie. I can confirm this both anecdotally and judiciously. Yes, okay, in 2016, the media appeared to have sided with Hillary Clinton. As a result, Sanders was publicly humiliated. Because Clinton took a mafioso approach to dealing with opponents, and Sanders was her only roadblock.

Imagine if a major political organization devoted part of each day to agitating your downfall. And then you fail. And who's fault is it?

Sanders wanted to know: those negative ads targeting him, who paid for them?

Photo by Sean Ryan

Corporations, of course. Corporations that hated radicals like him. And really was he so radical? He listed off the possibilities: Big pharma, insurance companies, oil companies.

Because he had become a revolutionary, to them. To many.

He said it with certainty, although he often didn't have to say it at all. This spirit of rebellion had become his brand. He would lead the wild Americans into a utopia.

But just as quickly, he would attack. Trump, as always, was the target.

He called Trump the worst president in American history.

"The fates are Yuge," he shouted.

The speech ended as informally as it had begun. And Sanders' trance over the audience evaporated, replaced by that suction energy. Everyone rushed closer and closer to the man as Neil Young's "Keep on Rockin in the Free World" blared. Sanders leaned into the podium and said, "If anyone wants to form a line, we can do some selfies."

Photo by Sean Ryan

It was like meeting Jesus for some of the people.

There he was, at El Malecón. No stage lights, no makeup, no stylist behind the curtain. Just him and his ideas and his erratic hand commotion.

Then a man holding a baby leaned in for a photo. He and Sanders chatted. And, I kid you not, the whole time the baby is staring at Bernie Sanders like he's the image of God, looking right up at him, with this glow, this understanding.

Bernie, if you're reading this, I'd like to suggest that — if this election doesn't work for you — you could be the next Pope.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it.
