VIDEO: Prof compares Trump's actions to 'murder conspiracy'

  • New School Professor Maya Wiley compared President Donald Trump's actions to a "murder conspiracy."
  • Wiley said on national television that the president engaged in a "murder conspiracy" in which the victim is the Constitution.

A New York City professor suggested on national television that President Donald Trump has engaged in a "murder conspiracy" during his ongoing senate impeachment trial. 

Maya Wiley, professor at the New School in New York City, made the comment Thursday during an appearance on MSNBC. 

"it's also a murder conspiracy and the victim here is the Constitution"   

"[W]hen you look at the obstruction, part of what House impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) is saying is, this is suicide for congressional oversight if we do not take action on a president who by the way just yesterday in Davos kind of rejoiced at the fact that they had all the evidence and not Congress..." Wiley said.

The professor appears to be referencing comments in which Trump said during his visit to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, “When we released that conversation all hell broke out with the Democrats. Because they said, ‘Wait a minute, this is much different than what [Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)] told us.' So, we’re doing very well. I got to watch enough. I thought our team did a very good job," Trump said of the first hours of the Senate impeachment trial. 

"But honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have the material," Trump added. 

Wiley then compared the president's actions to that of a "murder conspiracy."

"But it's also a murder conspiracy and the victim here is the Constitution," Wiley said.
