Skip to comments.Alan Dershowitz: Michael Cohen ‘Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn’t Exist
Posted on 08/23/2018 4:34:29 PM PDT by SmokingJoe
Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Michael Cohen, President Donald Trumps former attorney, is pleading guilty to a crime that doesnt exist to further Democrats plans to impeach the president. He offered his analysis during a Wednesday interview with Breitbart Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on SiriusXMs Breitbart News Tonight. I dont think theres an impeachable offense, said Dershowitz. I believe you need to have a specific crime treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors and none of the things that [Michael] Cohen pleaded guilty to would rise to that level or even come close to it. What Cohen pleaded guilty to may not even be a crime, the part about the election campaign laws.

He may be a liberal, but he is an honest liberal.
I think I heard Mr Dershowitz joke recently that he’s not allowed on Marsha’s Vineyard this summer.
So Lanny Davis is his lawyer, and he counsels his client to plead guilty to something that isn’t even a crime. Isn’t this the very definition of malpractice? Just whose interests was Davis looking out for, anyway?
Then file a Formal Complaint with the BAR for Perjury, Suborning Perjury, and Perpetrating a FRAUD upon the Court for ALL INVOLVED!!!
Trump just needs to keep his mouth shut.
Trump never intended Cohen to break any law.
Trump relied on lawyer Cohen to do things in a fully legal manner.
The whole campaign finance law rubbish needs to be declared unconstitutional so campaigns can focus on the important issues.
When Hillary spent over $500 million, why are we even talking about Cohen’s $130,000?
He’s old school Democrat before the Democratic party became the communist party. I was thinking about that the other day: There is a communist party in the USA, so what do they think of Democrats? It’s not like Democrats are hiding it anymore, so why don’t the two parties merge and just call it the communist party? Every candidate Democrats run is a communist so it would be a perfect merge of the two parties. Look, they even have a website........
If Dershowitz is calling them out, they really have nothing.
Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesnt Exist is not the point ,it’s the pleading Guilty and then connecting it to Trump times five or six
And his client was a lawyer. Couple of dumb-asses.
Cohen won’t be sentenced until December 12th. Does that make sense?
It might usage been a crime for Cohen to donate though. And there are also the allegations that he did not disclose the Contribution. The better argument from Trumps standpoint is that it wasnt a cmpaign contribution.
A far more serious crime if you ask me!
Cohen wont be sentenced until December 12th. Does that make sense?
Yes, it keeps him on the leash until after the mid-terms
It does when you realize the fix is in...
“When Hillary spent over $500 million, why are we even talking about Cohens $130,000?”
Because that’s the way things are done nowadays. Democrats aka Leftists/Communists spread hate and lies and break the law and Republicans bend over and take it. You might see someone on the Right “speak out” against it...maybe write some articles or books, but nobody brings any lawsuits or other actions against them and even if they do - it’s not in the news and few of us hear about it.
I think we are all about fed up which is why Donald Trump was elected. Poor guy has had a tough time finding actual team mates he can trust, that’s for sure.
Yep and the reason that POS Mueller keeps delaying Flynns sentencing so he keep turning the screws in the hopes he can get another flip and the rat judge lets him get away with it.
