    by Lynn Foster Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz made a stunning revelation in an interview that he has proof that former Democrat President Barack Obama ordered the FBI to investigate someone after far-left billionaire George Soros asked for the investigation. Dershowitz’s remarks come after critics have attacked President Donald Trump for tweeting about matters related to the Department of Justice, which led to Attorney General William Barr publicly asking the president to stop last week. “There was a lot of White House control of the Justice Department during the Kennedy administration and I don’t think we saw very many...

    The avalanche of denunciation that fell upon the head of Professor Alan Dershowitz after his address before the Senate’s impeachment proceeding was unsurprising. In lending his stature and knowledge to the President’s defense, he, of course, became the enemy of Trump’s progressive pursuers. The fact that Dershowitz is a lifetime Democrat and liberal made it worse. The Left does not react well to apostasy. But the adverse reaction to Dershowitz’s defense of the President emanated from the nominal right as well -- particularly from National Review and the Dispatch. Jonah Goldberg is not entirely persuaded that impeachable misconduct must be...

    Alan Dershowitz, one of President Trump’s attorneys, defended himself on Sunday after sparking controversy with one of his arguments justifying the president’s pursuit of investigations in Ukraine. The former Harvard Law professor triggered a wave of backlash after appearing to argue that whatever a president does for reelection could be justified as part of the national interest. It fanned the flames of those who believed Mr. Trump’s actions regarding Ukraine was an abuse of power. Mr. Dershowitz explained on Fox News Sunday that his comments were “deliberately wrenched out of context” and that he was trying to explain there were...

    President Trump’s impeachment lawyer Alan Dershowitz argued the president should not have the stain of impeachment on his legacy if the Senate acquits him. “Nancy Pelosi has now pulled a real sharp one. She says even if he’s acquitted and vindicated, he’s still impeached. He’s going to have that label forever. That should not be how it is. Why? He didn’t have a fair trial,” Dershowitz, 81, told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Friday. “He was indicted. And what happens after a person is acquitted after indictment? The indictment disappears,” he continued. “If he wins this, I think nobody...

    Donald Trump's most famous and flamboyant lawyer vanished from his trial Thursday - turning up in Miami to fight back against a tidal wave of criticism for his extraordinary defense that anything a president does to get re-elected is unimpeachable. The Harvard professor surfaced in Florida as other academics and attorneys reacted with astonishment to his position, which he then said he had never actually said. On CNN he told Wolf Blitzer that he had a commitment in the state Thursday and it was difficult to change his flight because the Super Bowl is on this weekend in Miami. He...

    Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz gave what may be the most persuasive case against impeaching President Donald Trump while in the well of the U.S. Senate on Monday evening. Speaking as a representative of Trump's defense team, the lifelong liberal Democrat urged senators to not "let the feelings about one man, strong as they may be, cause irreparable damage" to the fate of other presidents. "Passion and fears of the moment must not blind us," he pleaded. Giving a clinic on the history of impeachment in a matter-of-fact and understandable way, Dershowitz explained the derivation of the idea of...

    Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz joined “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday to discuss the constitutionality of forcing members of the public to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, should a vaccine become available. Host Tucker Carlson began the segment by acknowledging the argument that people “don’t have a right to endanger other people, your right to punch ends at the tip of my nose” before asking Dershowitz whether “the government has a right to endanger” people who may have an adverse reaction to a vaccine by forcing them to take it. “The Supreme Court has said yes, and if the case...

    Now that Attorney General William Barr has rightly dismissed the case against Michael Flynn, the Justice Department should review all similar prosecutions and dismiss those that come within the principles that led to the dismissal of the Flynn case. If these principles were persuasive enough to warrant action in the Flynn case - and I believe they were - they cannot rightfully be limited to one high profile case, without lending support to the accusation, even if false, that politics may have played a role in the Flynn case. The Justice Department must not only be just, it must appear...

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Attorney General William Barr did "exactly the right thing" in dropping charges against former Trump administration national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn because there was never a crime committed, Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz asserted Friday. Flynn was exonerated by the DOJ on Thursday afternoon. The action comes even though prosecutors for the past three years have maintained that Flynn lied to the FBI in a January 2017 interview about his conversations with the Russian ambassador and following Flynn's own guilty plea. In a phone interview on the "Brian Kilmeade Show," Dershowitz...

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz filed a defamation countersuit against fellow lawyer David Boies, claiming Boies, his law firm and Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Guiffre attempted to extort money from rich and powerful men for private settlements. The suit, filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress and extortion. It names billionaire Leslie Wexner as one of alleged extortion targets. This lawsuit comes in response to Boies’s suit against Dershowitz that was filed in November, accusing the attorney of disparaging Boies’s law firm, Boies Schiller Flexner LLP, by calling it “the law firm of extortion,...

I think Schumer and Pelosi have to go. Schumer, because of his history of lying. You know, Pelosi actually called for me to be disbarred … because I had persuaded some senators” in the Senate trial, he said referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “I think the Dems need new leaders if...

    A week after being roasted for tweeting a fake conversation between Republican senators, CNN political commentator and former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart claimed Wednesday night during the Senate trial’s dinner break that an argument used by Trump legal team member Alan Dershowitz was “un-American” and akin to those used by “authoritarian people” to justify “genocide.” OutFront host Erin Burnett asked Lockhart what he made of Dershowitz’s claim that a presidential action done “in the national interest...cannot be a quid pro quo that results in impeachment.” Without hesitation, Lockhart stated that while he’s “worked on about a dozen...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday hammered the lawyers leading President Trump's impeachment defense, saying they've trampled on the Constitution while questioning how they've been allowed to keep their jobs. "I don't know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they're making," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. Pelosi was responding largely to comments made Wednesday evening by Alan Dershowitz, a celebrity lawyer on Trump's legal team, who asserted on the Senate floor that presidents cannot be impeached for actions designed to boost their reelections — if they believe that retaining a grip on the White...

    "The View" erupted with testy moments on Wednesday as Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz defended President Trump against the co-hosts during a discussion about the ongoing Senate impeachment trial. Many of the co-hosts took issue with Dershowitz's answers, including Behar who, at one point, told the Trump impeachment defense attorney that his argument was "baloney." Co-host Whoopi Goldberg also cut off Dershowitz off as he attempted to give some historical background on whether impeachment could proceed without actual crimes. He was responding to co-host Joy Behar's claim that no other constitutional scholar agreed with him about needing a crime for...

    Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, delivering a spirited constitutional defense of President Trump at his Senate impeachment trial Monday night, flatly turned toward House impeachment managers and declared they had picked "dangerous" and "wrong" charges against the president -- noting that neither "abuse of power" nor "obstruction of Congress" was remotely close to an impeachable offense as the framers had intended. In a dramatic primetime moment, the liberal constitutional law scholar reiterated that although he voted for Hillary Clinton, he could not find constitutional justification for the impeachment of a president for non-criminal conduct, or conduct that was not...

    As part of President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team, Alan Dershowitz is expected to argue on behalf of the president at the Senate trial early next week. But in a 2016 book he authored, the famed defense attorney called Trump a “destabilizing and unpredictable candidate,” warning that the then-presidential candidate “openly embraces fringe conspiracy theories peddled by extremists.” Dershowitz wrote those statements in his book titled “Electile Dysfunction: A Guide for Unaroused Voters.” In a phone call with NBC about his comments in the 2016 book, Dershowitz clarified his views about the president. “I was campaigning for Hillary Clinton at...
