In Trump impeachment, 'no one is above the law' could backfire on Democrats

Byron York, Washington Examiner

By stressing that Trump is not "above the law," Democrats are basing their case against the president on the argument that he broke the law and must be held accountable. But it's not at all clear that Trump broke any laws in the Ukraine matter. In the face of a vigorous Republican defense, any argument on that question is likely to end inconclusively. It will be very, very hard for House Democrats to show that Trump committed a crime. Democrats have not helped their cause by accusing Trump of criminal behavior. "No man is above the law" sounds good, but it requires the impeachers to make a case that the president did, indeed, break the law. Look for Democrats to seek an easier route.
