Mark Levin’s enlightening chat with Doug Collins: ‘Trump gets less due process than terrorists on 9/11’

Conservative radio host Mark Levin says the president has been afforded “less due process than the terrorists on 9/11.”

The host of Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty and Levin” continued to blast House Democrats for impeaching President Donald Trump and effectively robbing him of his due process rights.

Speaking with Rep. Doug Collins on Sunday, Levin unpacked the highly partisan impeachment of Trump and how Democrats have effectively run unchecked with their attack on the president, even as the Senate trial gets underway.

“This is really important, I think,” Levin said on his show Sunday.

“The House of Representatives is conducting the investigation. One party controls the House of Representatives. And one party wanted to impeach the President of the United States. Not a single Republican. I believe this has never happened before in American history,” he added.

“The president is denied due process. I’m not talking about the Bill of Rights, I’m talking about the kind of due process past presidents have had, judges have had when faced with situations like this – basic Magna Carta-type due process that people are supposed to get. The president gets less due process than the terrorists on 911 get,” he told Collins.

“They get because habeas corpus rights and all these other…the president gets no rights, no consideration,” he continued.

Trump apparently agreed as he noted the comment on a tweet on Sunday.

“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,” Levin said.

He noted that Democrats are demanding to hear from former National Security Adviser John Bolton, OMB director and Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney as well as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

“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,” Levin asked Collins.

The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee then shared a comment by Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer which he felt revealed just what Americans should be most concerned about as far as the Democrats’ relentless push for impeachment.

“I’m going to go back to a statement that was said by the Majority Leader, Mr Hoyer from Maryland,” Collins replied.

“He made a very revealing statement for anybody who’s concerned about Constitutional rights and especially, for me, even those on my Democratic counterparts that worry about their communities where they discuss police action and rights being violated.  It’s a matter of – it’s amazing to me they’re willing to set that aside to come up with this,” the Georgia Republican said.

“Steny Hoyer actually said, ‘The president – we allowed him every opportunity to come prove his innocence,'” Collin recounted.

“I’m sorry, did we take a vacation and leave the United States? Do we all of a sudden suspend the Bill of Rights. Do we suspend any modicum of due process?” Collins demanded.

“I don’t care if you think this president should be impeached or not, this is irrelevant,” he added. “This should bother everybody.”

Liberals naturally attacked Levin for his comment about the 9/11 terrorists, arguing that they had no due process rights since they died carrying out their atrocities. Levin slammed the liberals, tweeting how the “Democrat Party-press” is daily “pushing the Left’s agenda.”

Levin took particular aim at Mediaite’s Reed Richardson.
