    One of them is not telling the truth,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said today on Fox Business Network's Mornings With Maria. Dershowitz was referencing the remarks made by Andrew McCabe (fired on Friday from the FBI by Attorney General Jeff Sessions) that he had been given authority by former FBI Director James Comey to share information with the media concerning the investigations of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton family’s charitable foundation, and that he had done so with knowledge of “the director.” The firing was a result of the report of the inspector general of the Justice Department. Attorney...
  • Dershowitz: Mueller performing 'legal colonoscopy,' never should have been appointed

    The Hill ^ | Maarch 20th, 2018 | By Joe Concha
    Lawyer Alan Dershowitz on Tuesday said Democrats are "fueling the speculation" around President Trump possibly firing special counsel Robert Mueller, adding that "there never should have been an appointment of special counsel." "That would create a real problem on the Republican side of the aisle. I don’t think he’ll fire him or should fire him," he added. "America's Newsroom" anchor Sandra Smith pressed Dershowitz on Trump's weekend tweets. "The president with his tweets over the weekend and Monday morning saying 'this is the ultimate witch hunt' adds fuel to the fire saying this investigation never should have began in the...
  • Liberal Alan Dershowitz: The Hard Left is a Bigger Threat to America

    Louder with Crowder ^ | 2/15/2018 | JOHN PORTER
    It’s always amusing to see which traditional liberals have been pushed too far by leftists. Not that this is the first time Alan Dershowitz has strayed (see Alan Dershowitz Throws Down on Idiots Who Blame Terrorism on Poverty… and WATCH: Alan Dershowitz Face-Stomps Obama Over Anti-Israel Resolution). It is, however, the most blunt he’s been about it. I’m not worried about a few dozen people with swastikas who want to replace the Jews, because they’re our past. They have no resonance on university campuses today. But the hard, hard left? Anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, intolerance for speech. It’s the future. These are...

    During the relatively dead news cycle between Christmas and New Years, most media outlets choose to burn up some space with retrospectives on the year that’s ending. Politico is no exception, and one of their features this week was dedicated to people who had found themselves engaged in Twitter feuds with the President, with an eye toward how well they had “survived” the encounter. They chose to highlight Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, Kathy Griffin, Alan Dershowitz, John Podesta and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Rather than a series of survivor stories, most of these (with one notable exception) seem...

    WND ^ | Leo Hohmann
    President Donald Trump is getting ready to do something big and risky in the Middle East – something no other president has dared to do. So big, and so risky, that it could either spark a new Palestinian uprising, or lead to the long coveted but elusive peace pact that every president since Jimmy Carter has tried to broker. According to published reports, Trump is planning to announce Wednesday the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel and move the American Embassy there from Tel Aviv within six months. He reportedly has the backing of Saudi Arabia,...

    Politico wrote about a few top media and political figures and how they dealt with being mentioned by President Trump on Twitter. For one Hillary Clinton supporter, liberal Democrat Alan Dershowitz says his family has seen better days. Dershowitz, a lawyer, is seen regularly on CNN, Fox News, and other outlets defending some of President Trump's decision, arguing there is no grounds for an obstruction of justice charge after he fired FBI Director James Comey earlier this year. While hoping that former Vice President Joe Biden challenges Trump in 2020, the liberal lawyer has said he’s lost several pounds this...

I’ve done it as a Ranking Member. I’ve done it as a Chairman. I’ve done it when my party held the White House. And, I’ve done it when the other party held the White House. Earlier this year, I stood up for the rights of my Democrat colleagues to do oversight of the Trump administration, even while they are in the Minority. I...

    Fox News ^ | 12/7/2017 | Alan Dershowitz
    President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a perfect response to President Obama’s benighted decision to change American policy by engineering the United Nations Security Council Resolution declaring Judaism’s holiest places in Jerusalem to be occupied territory and a “flagrant violation under international law.” It was President Obama who changed the status quo and made peace more difficult, by handing the Palestinians enormous leverage in future negotiations and disincentivizing them from making a compromised peace. It had long been American foreign policy to veto any one-sided Security Council resolutions that declared Judaism’s holiest places to be illegally...

    President Trump was pleased with constitutional law scholar Alan Dershowitz’s defense of him over his firing of former FBI Director James Comey, calling the Harvard Law professor’s analysis on Fox News a “must watch” interview. “A must watch: Legal Scholar Alan Dershowitz was just on @foxandfriendstalking of what is going on with respect to the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. political history. Enjoy!” Trump wrote on Twitter. Dershowitz, a lifelong Democrat, said Trump has the constitutional right as president to fire his FBI director. “You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire...

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz batted down the merit of obstruction of justice charges aimed at President Donald Trump for what he said was exercising his constitutional power and authority regarding the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey and instructing the Department of Justice what to and not to investigate. “If Congress were to ever charge him with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional authority under Article 2, we’d have a constitutional crisis,” he explained. “You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire...

His credibility is worthless," Dershowitz said on Tuesday - three days before it was reported that former White House adviser Michael Flynn would testify that the Donald asked him to collude with the Russians. "They'll never be able to impeach President Trump," he also predicted.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” attorney and author Alan Dershowitz criticized President Barack Obama for not calling out Black Lives matter and Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) for their bigotry, and “we on the liberal side have to call out the bigotry on the left as strongly as people on the right have to call the bigotry of the far right.” Dershowitz said, “President Obama hasn’t done enough. He hasn’t done enough in calling out Black Lives Matter when they included an argument about genocide, calling Israel a genocidal country. He hasn’t done enough on Keith Ellison, who for years...

    Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's team of lawyers will no longer be working with Trump's defense team during special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling. They had been sharing information up until this point.That may mean, The New York Times muses, that Flynn's team is cooperating with the Mueller investigation. The only reason for the split would be a conflict of interest.The Times reportedly has four sources to confirm the split. If true and Flynn is cooperating with Mueller, it could result in a much more scrutinized look into the Trump campaign. A deal with Mr. Flynn would...

    What's a witch-hunter to do when there's no witch, and witchcraft itself turns out to be imaginary? When even the latest accusation against the biggest scapegoat of the house is a crock? Alan Dershowitz, a liberal in good standing with occasional fits of constitutional sanity, has called on Bob Mueller, aka "The Special Prosecutor," to resign, 'cause there's no there there. Professor Dershowitz points out that Trump may be guilty of sins "but not crimes." Well, if POTUS Trump is a sinner, I hope the Lord forgives him, along with the rest of us. But if all sinners went to...

    'Going well beyond his authority as prosecutor' Alan Dershowitz is blasting Special Counsel Robert Mueller for trying to turn President Trump’s constitutional actions into crimes. Mueller, who was appointed to investigate claims the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 election, is “going well beyond his authority as a prosecutor,” Dershowitz stated in an interview with Fox News’ “Outnumbered Overtime.” Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor emeritus, said it was “very worrying” that Mueller requested documents from the Justice Department regarding Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the Russia probe. Mueller is...

    While pundits across the political spectrum criticized President Trump’s initial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, one prominent left-leaning American jurist and lifelong Democrat is calling out the progressive-left for its own failure to condemn violent extremism. Alan Dershowitz, a famed defense attorney and professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, criticized President Trump’s response to the killing of a demonstrator in Charlottesville by a white supremacist, writing in The Algemeiner that the president “has a special obligation to single out for condemnation… individuals and groups that claim… to speak in his name.” But Dershowitz also noted...

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, who voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, told Fox News’s Jeanine Pirro he sees no crime in Donald Trump Jr’s behavior. “I’m shocked as a civil libertarian, and a criminal lawyer and a liberal at how liberals are, some of them at least, prepared to stretch existing laws, talk about treason, talk about other kinds of crimes that just don’t exist when it comes to the facts as we know them about this meeting,” he said. “So I’m going to keep insisting we stop accusing people of crime when there is no evidence...

    When it comes to issues such as sanctuary cities, it is impossible to avoid controversy. When President Donald Trump appoints anyone to help oversee the issue, it will be controversial, especially if the appointment promises to be very effective one. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is scheduled to serve as an assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security. He will be working at the Office of Partnership and Engagement, which coordinates outreach to state and local governments. Clarke’s understanding of domestic law enforcement issues makes him the perfect candidate. He joins President Trump in opposing sanctuary cities and in...
