The New York Times: Prof. Abner Greene Calls Trump Team’s Latest Immunity Arguments “Sure Losers”


Fordham Law Professor Abner Greene, a constitutional law expert, is quoted in a New York Times piece discussing claims from former President Trump’s attorneys saying he is immune from all prosecution unless first impeached and convicted in Congress.

Mr. Sauer’s reading on Tuesday of what lawyers call the impeachment judgment clause did not impress legal scholars.

Abner S. Greene, a law professor at Fordham University, said that “the impeachment arguments are sure losers — both that the president may be criminally prosecuted only if impeached and convicted, and that the president may not be criminally prosecuted if impeached and not convicted.”
