The Left, media, and academics have spent the last week claiming that President Donald Trump’s refusal to participate in the Democrats’ so-called impeachment inquiry is a “constitutional crisis.” On his radio program Friday night, LevinTV host Mark Levin destroyed those arguments point-by-point by looking at what the Founders meant the impeachment process to be.

Levin explained how during the Constitutional Convention, the Founders were very careful to shield the executive from a “specific faction” in the House. Levin then said the Founders specifically called for a two-thirds majority to convict in the Senate to prevent that “specific faction” from undermining “the independence of a president.”

Levin said, “There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that compels a president to comply with a House of Representatives that is conducting itself this way.”

“What is misunderstood here is the president is not required to sit there and take it,” Levin continued.
