“Chuck and Nancy” as President Trump has dubbed them, have been a disgrace to their office and need to go.
But that’s not just me saying it.
Or even President Trump.
Now it’s constitutional scholar and famed attorney Alan Dershowitz saying it too, calling for a change in leadership in Congress.
He literally said flat out “Schumer and Pelosi have to go”.
Check this out:
Dershowitz, a lifelong Democrat, has been one of Trump's most vocal supporters.
He was a key contributor in the defense of Donald Trump at his impeachment.
With over 50 years of experience as a constitutional law professor, I'd say he's highly qualified.
Here's how the New York Post reported his comments:
Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard law professor who was part of President Trump’s legal team during the Senate impeachment trial, said the top Democratic leaders in Congress “have to go” if the party wants to regain power.
“I think they need new leadership. I think Schumer and Pelosi have to go. Schumer, because of his history of lying. You know, Pelosi actually called for me to be disbarred … because I had persuaded some senators” in the Senate trial, he said, referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
“I think the Dems need new leaders if they have any chance of returning to power,” Dershowitz said in an interview that aired Sunday morning on “The Cats Roundtable” with radio host John Catsimatidis on AM 970.
The Republican-majority Senate voted last Wednesday to acquit Trump on two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
It's unlikely that Democrats will vote to remove Chuck Schumer as Senate Minority Leader.
That means it's up to voters to take back the House from Nancy in November.
More from The Hill:
Alan Dershowitz, an associate of President Trump who served on his impeachment defense team, said Democrats need new leadership in Congress and that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) “have to go.”
“I think they need new leadership. I think Schumer and Pelosi have to go. Schumer because of his history of lying. You know, Pelosi actually called for me to be disbarred ... because I had persuaded some senators” in the impeachment trial, Dershowitz said on John Catsimatidis’s radio show Sunday.
“I think the Dems need new leaders if they have any chance of returning to power,” he added.
Dershowitz’s comments come days after the conclusion of the Senate’s acrimonious impeachment trial.
The House voted in December largely along party lines to impeach Trump on allegations that he abused the power of his office by pressing Ukraine to investigate his political opponents and obstructed Congress by hindering subsequent probes about his dealings with the country and its officials.
The Senate acquitted Trump this week, with only Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) breaking party lines to vote to convict on abuse of power.
Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor and a contributor to The Hill, said this was a good week for the country and its laws. However, he said he believes that the impeachment trial reflects poorly on lawmakers in the lower chamber of Congress.
“This week was a good week for United States Constitution. The Constitution won,” Dershowitz said. “I think the House of Representatives disgraced itself by its partisan vote. And I think the Senate did the right thing by protecting the Constitution. I’m proud of America. The system works.”

As a constitutional scholar, he may be the most qualified person in the United States to defend a President against these attacks.
He will be forever remembered as a defender of the constitution and what's right.
