Fox guest Alan Dershowitz: Putting “electoral interests before the national interests” wouldn't “even be close to being an impeachable offense.”

Citation From the December 3, 2019 edition of Fex News The Ingraham Angle: 

LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): The first key finding of the fact in the House intel report claims that Trump solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 U.S. Presidential election to benefit himself, politically. Now did the inquiry and the findings actually prove that, professor? 

ALAN DERSHOWITZ: Well it doesn't really matter whether they prove it because that wouldn't be an impeachable offense. It's not even close. What they say in the report is that he put his own electoral interests over the national interests of the United States. If that became a criteria for impeachment, half of our presidents could be impeached. How many presidents put their electoral interests before the national interests? It's too bad and if they do you can take that into account when voting for somebody but even if the evidence were to have established that it does not, in my view, establish what they claim it does, it wouldn't even be close to being an impeachable offense.
