Indeed there is reasonable possiblity that trump will push this all the way to the Suprene Court. He wants that fight because he 100% believes he will win.
Its very likely that every single time we hear trump say "There is no collusion" and "There is no Obstruction of justice", he is applying the same flawed logic as Dershowitz . But, trump is intentionally being misleading. He is letting the public assume he means that nothing ever happened in terms actions or words. He is not stating his full augment which is:
"Constitutional Presidential powers, by defination, are immune from all crimes. If US congress does not like a a president uses his power, they can impeach, otherwise the president is immune to all crimes."
Trump is gambling with extreme high stakes. He is playing a political game of Chicken by driving down the political freeway at 110mph in the wrong direction, betting everyone else will swerve off the road first, because they don't have the guts to impeach him. Everything he says or does has the under current of:
"You all are fucking cowards, you don't have the balls to impeach me, so I am going to do 100% of want I want, including lying, breaking the law, screwing women as often as I want, make racist comments, everything else that comes to my mind.... You're a bunch of fucking little cunts"
