Donald Trump’s top impeachment defense attorney Alan Dershowitz took to Twitter on Tuesday to retract on what he said about impeachment just 22 years ago.

“To the extent there are inconsistencies between my current position and what I said 22 years ago, I am correct today,” Dershowitz argued.

He went on to claim that, “abuse of power and obstruction of congress are neither crimes nor criminal-like behavior.”

“So I have now thoroughly researched the issue and concluded that although a technical crime with all the elements may not be required, criminal like behavior akin to treason and bribery is required,” he added.

“To the extent therefore that my 1998 off-the-cuff interview statement suggested the opposite, I retract it,” Dershowitz said. “Scholars learn to adapt and even change old views as they do more research.”
