The mainstream media is quickly raising Harvard Law Professor Noah Feldman to the level of stardom for his lengthy, emotional opening statement calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, overlooking his lengthy resume that directly opposes the president’s agenda and worldview.
After his emotional opening statement claiming that President Donald Trump’s actions rise to the level of impeachment, National File decided to research the background of the Democrats’ new star.
"President Trump has committed impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors by corruptly abusing the office of the presidency."

Feldman boasts a PhD in Islamic Thought he earned from Oxford University in 1994.
This credential, along with others, led him to take part in writing the new constitution of Iraq after the United States-led invasion, something President Trump strongly advised against as a private citizen, and attempted to add Islamic influences to the Democratic government, sparking sharp criticism from other foreign policy experts.
Additionally, Feldman is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, an organization that is largely seen to be pro-war and pro-American imperialism, and was described by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a staunch ally of President Trump, as a “pernicious den of snakes.”
Feldman also frequently writes for the New York Times Magazine, a publication frequently derided as an “enemy of the people” by President Trump.
In addition to writing for New York Times Magazine, Feldman previously wrote for Bloomberg, an organization which was stripped of its press credentials by President Trump after it decided to exclusively cover Republicans, and not Democrats, in the 2020 election.
Interestingly, Feldman, who is Jewish, is also a strong critic of Orthodox Judiasm, having claimed that he has been disowned by many Orthodox Jews for his decision to marry a woman who is not Jewish.
President Trump, of course, is a staunch ally of Israel, having moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, and having a daughter who converted to Judaism after marrying her husband, Jared Kushner.
This may lead some observers to wonder whether Feldman’s claims that President Trump should be impeached are motivated by the president’s actual behavior, or whether they may be motivated by Feldman’s worldview, which is seemingly diametrically opposed to the America First agenda.
