Democrats doctored video of Trump used during impeachment hearing




Breitbart’s Joel Pollack reported that the deceptive snippet of video, which quoted the president out of context, was used extensively as an argument against Trump during the House Judiciary Committee hearing that featured four law professors and supposed experts on the Constitution and impeachment, three of whom were overtly biased in favor of impeaching the president and removing him from office.

It appears to have first been used by Democrat counsel Norm Eisen, formerly the White House "ethics" czar in the Obama administration, as a set-up for Harvard law professor Noah Feldman, and appeared to show President Trump boldly claiming that Article II of the Constitution granted him the power to do whatever he wanted.

In that clip, Trump said, "Then I have an Article II, where I have the right to do whatever I want as president."
