John Cornyn: ‘This Is the First Time’ a ‘President Has Been Impeached for a Non-Crime’

‘He’s been charged with abuse of power, which is not treason, which is not bribery, which is not a high crime and misdemeanor’

EXCERPT:

CORNYN: "He's been charged with abuse of power, which is not treason, which is not bribery, which is not a high crime and misdemeanor. So this is the first time in history where a president has been impeached for a non-crime for events that never occurred. Ultimately the investigation never took place and ultimately the aid was delivered. This is really unique. I think every senator will take this very seriously."
