Citation From the December 18, 2019 edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:

JENNA ELLIS: It's very significant unfortunately, because this is setting such a bad precedent constitutionally. And I want to be clear for all of the Democrats who have been on the House floor today saying and claiming that the House has, quote, unquote, sole power of impeachment, so legitimizing what they are doing right now, that's not what the Constitution actually says that they can impeach over absolutely anything. No power given to any government branch is unlimited, and can be exercised in absolutely any way possible. And so, for example, legislative power is given solely to Congress, right? But that doesn't mean that the House can legislate on absolutely anything. Routinely --

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): No, right. That's exactly right.

ELLIS: The Supreme Court overturns legislative measures as unconstitutional. 

CARLSON: That's right. 

ELLIS: So here, this impeachment is fully unconstitutional because these two articles, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress are nowhere defined as treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. They also have no legal or constitutional merit on face by any standard of law --


ELLIS: --and any standard of proof that we recognize in American jurisprudence.
