Top conservative talker, author, and constitutional expert Mark Levin blasted Democrats following the second day of the second impeachment trial against now-former President Donald Trump, declaring Congress to be “rogue” in proceeding with “one of the stupidest events” in the country’s history.
In an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Levin — who also hosts a Sunday program on the network called “Life, Liberty, and Levin” — began by tearing into the Democrats chosen by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be impeachment managers.
“First of all, we are watching one of the stupidest events by some of the stupidest people in American history, and history will fix this,” he began.
“We have a man who slept with a Chinese spy as one of the House Democrat managers,” he continued, an apparent reference to Rep. Eric Swalwell of California.

“We have a man in [lead House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie] Raskin, who was one of the most-loud opponents in one of the recent past elections of certifying the electors,” Levin continued. “We have a political party that cheered on Antifa and Black Lives Matter and called federal law enforcement storm troopers, and here they are bringing this Soviet-style case against the president of the United States.”
Levin went on to criticize senators who disagreed with the trial for remaining in the chamber during proceedings.
“The senators sit there, none of them walk out and say, I’m not going to participate in something so unconstitutional?” he asked.
The former Reagan Justice Department official also appeared to take a shot at Trump’s legal team.
“Let me show you how preposterous this is. Where is the video of Donald Trump over and over and over again supporting law enforcement, and law and order? Where are the videos of the police groups endorsing Donald Trump for president of the United States? They didn’t show that,” he said.
Levin went on to cast doubts on the claims made by the Democrat impeachment managers.
“…[E]very single video that was introduced by Raskin and the other stooges on the left is inadmissible in any court in America, in any advanced society. They have no reliable information, no relevant guide of any kind to anything, period. It has — all of it is inflammatory,” Levin noted.
Levin, whose weekday radio show reaches an estimated 10-15 million people per week, went on to remind viewers that Trump was being accused last summer of working to suppress the vote.
“Does everybody remember the post office was underfunded? Everybody remember the disappearance of the mailboxes? Everybody remember how the Democrats and the media were saying Donald Trump is going to suppress the vote in black and the minority communities?” Levin added. “LeBron James, we don’t have enough — remember all that? Setting the stage so if Donald Trump won re-election, to claim that it was illegitimate?”
He also said that so far, no one has produced evidence that the former president “worked with a single individual or [a] single one of the groups” to plan the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol Building.
“Where is the evidence that anything he said in that speech resulted in the attack on that Capitol? The FBI knew it might be coming. They were tipped off about it. There are many questions. What the hell did the FBI know and when did it know it?” Levin said.
“One other thing, they stormed the Capitol and overturned the results of the election they didn’t vote in. CNN did a little bit of review of some of these people who’ve been charged with crimes. Do you know what they found out? A bunch of them never voted. A bunch of them never voted,” Levin said as he rounded out his commentary.
The host added that in his view, the entire proceeding is unconstitutional.
“What’s happening here in the Senate a disgrace. You don’t have a right. I don’t care what scholars say, my friend, Ted Cruz says or anybody else. You cannot impeach a private citizen. You cannot have a trial on a private citizen. You don’t have the power to prohibit a private citizen, a former public official from running again,” said Levin.
“We have a rogue impeachment, a rogue House, a rogue Senate, a rogue trial,” he concluded, “and we have an innocent man at Mar-a-Largo who deserves a hell of a lot better than this.”
