During an interview with staunch Trump defender, Republican Congressman Doug Collins, Fox News host Mark Levin slammed the House impeachment of President Donald Trump and, in a bizarre analogy, said Trump got “less due process that the terrorists on 9/11.”
On his Sunday night Fox News show, the famously pro-Trump Levin continued his months-long assault on the House Democrats for impeaching the president. During a discussion with Collins, the far right conservative host blasted the impeachment process as having trampled on the president’s right.
“This is really important, I think,” Levin said. “The House of representatives is conducting the investigation. One party controls the House, one party wanted to impeach the President of the United States. Not a single Republican. I don’t believe this is ever happened before in American history. He is denied due process. I’m not talking about the Bill of Rights, I’m talking about the due process past presidents have had, judges have had, basic Magna Carta-type due process that people are supposed to get. The president gets less due process than the terrorists on 911 get…”
At the mention of 9/11, the camera cut to Collins, whose eyebrows quickly shot up and eyes closed before he quickly nodded in agreement.
“They get because habeas corpus rights and all these other…the president gets no rights, no consideration,” Levin continued. “The Republicans, no rights. You just told me you couldn’t call a single witness. Same problem in the House Intelligence Committee, they couldn’t call a single witness. They wanted to call the whistleblower, couldn’t call the whistleblower. Can’t even state the whistleblower’s name, let alone call the whistleblower. [Former National Security Adviser] John Bolton, [House Democrats] didn’t go to court, now you have, let’s move to the Senate, demanding John Bolton, demanding Mick Mulvaney, chief of staff to the president, demanding the OMB director to the president, and the Secretary of State, these are the four that they want. Congressman, don’t we know historically that the courts have said under executive privilege and separation of powers this small circle around the president, Congress doesn’t get them? So they are purposely creating this confrontation.”
