Terrorists and serial murderers get more due process than Democrats are want to give President Donald Trump, Constitutional scholar and conservative commentator Mark Levin said Sunday.

Appearing alone on his “Life, Liberty and Levin” Fox News television program, Levin explained that Democrats’ refusal to allow President Trump to have access to the testimony of a hostile whistleblower – or even to defend himself against the unsubstantiated charges based on second-hand comments – is denying Trump even the most basic of American rights to due process.

In fact, the House Intel Committee’s investigation is being run like that of a communist Politburo, Levin said:

“The Democrats, Nancy Pelosi and six committee chairmen – I call them her Politburo – are running roughshod, or trying to, over the president of the United States, the Executive Branch and so forth, issuing letters that they call subpoenas, and if the letters aren’t replied to in a certain given of time, they are claiming that it’s obstruction.

”Of course, it can’t be obstruction of justice: they’re not a court. They mean obstruction of the House.

“And so, they’re to set up the president and set up the administration. And, the demands are very onerous and it’s almost impossible to keep up with them.

“But, the process, ladies and gentlemen, is ahistorical. And the president’s counsel, wrote a letter, as you know, to the members of the House, and they said, ‘You have denied the president the right to cross-examine witnesses, to call witnesses, to receive transcripts of testimony, to have access to evidence, to have counsel present’ – in other words, due process. Basic due process.

“Even though this isn’t a criminal matter, serial murderers get more due process than the Democrats want to give to the president of the United States.

“Terrorists get more due process than the Democrats want to give to the president of the United States.”
