    F. Lee Bailey — one of the lawyers on O.J. Simpson’s “Dream Team” — sounds like an anti-Semite in his dotage. Bailey, 85, claims he has been persecuted since the football legend was acquitted of double murder in 1995 and that the case was never covered fairly in the media.Interviewed for an hour on the “Morano Whenever” podcast, the bitter Bailey said the book publishing industry and Hollywood have a policy of censoring anything favorable to Simpson.The disbarred lawyer seems to blame Jews when he says, “Some of the people who claim that most of their lives they’ve been subjected...

    In an interview Thursday morning with 'Good Day New York,' Alan Dershowitz pushed back against allegations that he had sex with underage girls through billionaire convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. He said he is being framed and has emails that will put "prominent people in handcuffs." "There are emails so far that are secret, but that prove, not only that I was framed, but who framed me," Dershowitz said. "It names names. These people are going to go to jail once these e-mails come out because this was a total frame up for financial reasons, and I can prove it, and...

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller's final report "will blur the line between crimes and sins and write a report designed to put" President Trump "in a bad light." In an appearance on Fox News, Dershowitz said he believes Mueller "wont be able to find any specific violations of federal criminal statutes" unless "vague laws" around obstruction of justice are stretched "beyond recognition." I dont see any crimes," Dershowitz told host Tucker Carlson. "Collusion itself is not a crime. Using information given by Russia to WikiLeaks would not be a crime unless the campaign...
  • Dershowitz: New Cohen Guilty Plea Another Example of Mueller Probe 'Creating' Crimes

    Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that Michael Cohen's new guilty plea is another example of crimes being created as a result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer, made a second plea agreement with federal prosecutors in New York, reportedly admitting to lying to Congress in 2017 about a Trump real estate deal in Russia.

    Now yesterday, on one of the Sunday morning programs, Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz who has sided with the president a lot in terms of legal opinions on Mueller said he believes the Mueller report, if and when it is produced by the special counsels office, would be politically devastating for the president, though he doesnt expect that it would include any criminal charges, he continued. However, Roberts found no back-up for Dershowitzs claim, he said. But other sources suggest that they dont know what Dershowitz is talking about, he said.

    Alan Dershowitz, a frequent defender of President Donald Trump, said special counsel Robert Muellers report will be devastating for the president. The Harvard Law professor emeritus told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that he believes the president will have to navigate the political impact of a potentially damning final report from the special counsel. I think the report is going to be devastating to the president and I know that the president's team is already working on a response to the report, Dershowitz said on "This Week" Sunday. Dershowitz added that he believes the report, although it will have...

    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Sunday he expects special counsel Robert Mueller's final report will be politically devastating for President Trump, but said he does not believe it will criminally implicate the president. "I think the report is going to be devastating to the president. And I know that the presidents team is already working on a response to the report," Dershowitz said on ABC's "This Week." "The critical questions are largely political," he added. "When I say devastating, I mean it's going to paint a picture that's going to be politically very devastating." Dershowitz argued that Mueller is...

    Dershowitz: How Can Rosenstein 'Be In Charge of Trump Investigation and Main Witness'? Alan Dershowitz commented Monday on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after President Trump told Chris Wallace he is answering written questions from Special Counsel Bob Mueller. Dershowitz said Rosenstein presents a "striking example of bias" in one way by "still being in charge of the investigation." After former Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia probe, Rosenstein became the de facto leader who controls Mueller. However, with the acting-appointment of Matt Whitaker, that role moves to his purview. Dershowitz said that any allegation by Mueller...

    Alan Dershowitz said Saturday on Fox & Friends that Democrats on the extreme left are "tolerating anti-Semitism" to avoid being alienated by their base. His remarks come after Minnesota Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar seemed to reverse her stance on the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. During a forum in August, Omar said that she supports a two-state solution to the IsraeliPalestinian conflict, saying that it's important to "recognize Israels place in the Middle East and the Jewish peoples rightful place within that region." However, Omar's campaign told the blog Muslim Girl that she "believes in and supports the...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) wants the DOJ inspector general to investigate President Trump's relationship and correspondence with Matthew Whitaker in the wake of his appointment to acting attorney general. Trump gave Whitaker the role after ousting former AG Jeff Sessions. Democrats are outraged for at least two reasons. One, that Whitaker has publicly criticized Robert Mueller's Russia probe and two, that Whitaker did not get Senate approval for the new position. They argue that under the succession statute, the role of acting AG rightfully belongs to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein. Schumer adds that if Whitaker remains in the role, he...

    The Republican Jewish Coalition is calling for the resignation of seven Democratic members of Congress whom it claims are "connected" to controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The group describes him as a "known anti-Semite." The lobbying group on Tuesday called for the following lawmakers to step down: Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Barbara Lee, D-Calif.; Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Danny Davis, D-Ill.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y.; and Al Green, D-Texas.

    Was Mueller among the prosecutors who wrote letters to the Massachusetts parole board opposing the release of the four before evidence emerged that they had been framed? No, according to Gertner and Limones attorney, Juliane Balliro, who scoured copies of the parole board records for the four men. There were no letters from Mueller in the files and his signature never appeared on anything I ever saw or can recall, Balliro said. Former Massachusetts Parole Board member Michael Albano, who complained of intimidation and retaliation by the FBI after he voted in favor of commutation for Limone in 1983, said...

    Harvard law professor and author Alan Dershowitz argued Monday that former FBI director and current special counsel Robert Mueller should be investigated for his role in protecting a notorious FBI informant and that civil liberties are at stake. In a column for the Washington Examiner, Dershowitz decries that any criticism or even skepticism regarding Muellers history is seen as motivated by a desire to help President Donald Trump.
  • Avoid temptation to seek partisan advantage from pipe bomb arrest

    The Hill ^ | October 26, 2018 | Alan Dershowitz
    The arrest of Cesar Sayoc Jr. for the flurry of pipe bombs directed against liberal and left wing icons leaves many questions unanswered. It does seem to put to rest the conspiracy theory of a false flag operation organized by the hard left to demonize the hard right or the Trump administration. But we still do not know whether the pipe bombs were intended to kill or merely to frighten. The FBI has determined that these bombs were not hoax devices, but they have not disclosed whether they were capable of lethally exploding. Either way the perpetrator must be condemned...

    Farrakhan tweets video calling Jews 'termites' Harvard Law professor and longtime Democrat Alan Dershowitz blasted Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan Thursday, calling on "all decent people" to condemn him after his most recent anti-Semitic comments. At an event in Detroit, Farrakhan pushed back on those who say he's anti-Semitic by labeling Jews as "termites." "So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you know what they do, call me an anti-Semite, stop it. Im anti-termite. I dont know nothing about hating somebody because of their religious preference," he said.

    The only thing thatll make the Kavanaugh saga sweeter for righties at this point is watching their least favorite lawyer get the Billy Batts treatment from his Democratic frenemies. Hes spent the past six months telling them to go get their shinebox. They were destined to stomp him as soon as an opportunity presented itself. Well you know at some point there were a lot of folks coming forward making all sorts of accusations, said Sen. Gary Peters, a Michigan Democrat, when asked about the allegations raised by Avenatti and his client. It turns it into a circus atmosphere and...

    As hinted at days earlier here at D.C. Whispers, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now preparing to launch a full investigation into the machinations of Christine Blasey Fords legal team and the office of Senator Diane Feinstein based upon recently uncovered information. It appears that FBI supplemental investigation into Judge (Justice) Brett Kavanaugh that Senator Feinstein demanded has backfired on her BIG TIME.

    Until Judge Brett Kavanaugh was accused of horrible crimessexual assault, lewd conduct and even gang rapehis confirmation hearings could fairly, if not entirely accurately, be characterized as a job interview. The burden was on him to demonstrate his suitability to serve on the Supreme Court. He apparently met that burden in the eyes of a majority, a partisan one to be sure, and seemed on the way to getting the job. But now everything has changed. So should the burden of persuasion. The behavior of which Judge Kavanaugh has been accused is so serious and devastating that it requires a...

    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says that President Trump could fight in court to force Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to recuse himself in the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Dershowitz made the comments in an interview on CNN's "Smerconish" after it was reported by The New York Times that Rosenstein brought up the possibility of recording Trump in the Oval Office last year. Rosenstein has said that he "never pursued or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false." Dershowitz suggested...
