    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...

  • ‘It Simply Is Not A Crime For the President to Exercise His Constitutional Authority’

    Constitutional expert and famed Harvard law Professor, Alan Dershowitz, took on Jeffrey Toobin to discuss the ongoing Trump-Comey saga, saying in no uncertain terms that “this is not obstruction of justice.” He explains, “That is his constitutional power. He has the right to say, ‘You will not investigate Flynn.’ The best proof of that is he could have simply said to Comey, ‘Stop the investigation, I’ve just pardoned Flynn.’” To back up his assertions, Dershowitz reminded viewers of when Bush I pardoned Casper Weinberger the night before trial. After doing so, no one cried ‘obstruction’ because it was within the...
  • Even Alan Dershowitz Says There Is No Crime To Warrant The Mueller Special Counsel

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    Proud Hillary Clinton voter and current constitutional/criminal law scholar and former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said a few days ago that a special counsel should not have been appointed to investigate President Donald Trump as there is simply no criminal statute or crime that he or his campaign is alleged to have committed. Special counsels are appointed to discover federal crimes so why was former FBI Director Robert Mueller assigned to the case if there is no criminal statute that has been violated? At the end of the day, Special Counsel Mueller “is going to find no crime,” according...

    Prominent American lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat, told Elizabeth MacDonald on FOX Business Network that he had seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump and Russia and even if there was evidence it wasn’t a crime. Alan Dershowitz: Well first of all I don’t see any evidence of collusion, and second even if there was major collusion, that’s not a crime. Even hypothetically if the administration or the candidate got together with the Russians and said, “Please help me become president. Do whatever you can to help me.” That wouldn’t be a crime… The most serious condemnations...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 05/12/2017 | Alan Dershowitz
    An absurd argument is now being put forward by some Democratic ideologues: namely that President Trump engaged in the crime of obstructing justice by firing FBI Director James Comey. Whatever one may think of the president's decision to fire Comey as a matter of policy, there is absolutely no basis for concluding that the president engaged in a crime by exercising his statutory and constitutional authority to fire Comey. As Comey himself wrote in his letter to the FBI, no one should doubt the authority of the president to fire the director for any reason or no reason. It simply...

    “Fidel Castro is one hell of a guy! You people would like him! Most people in Cuba like him.” (Ted Turner to a capacity crowd at Harvard Law School during a speech in 1997.)Within weeks, CNN was granted its coveted Havana Bureau, the first-ever granted by Castro to a foreign network. Bureau chief Lucia Newman (now with Al Jazeera) assured viewers, “CNN will be given total freedom to do what we want and to work without censorship.” Hard-hitting stories immediately followed. The Media Research Center reported how soon after Castro’s bestowment of a coveted Cuban “news” (i.e. propaganda) bureau, CNN...

    Two attorneys--Robert Barnes, a California trial attorney and Alan Dershowitz, a famed, highly-esteemed Harvard law professor and member of the legal profession--have come to the same conclusion: President Trump will prevail sooner or later with his immigration Executive Order. The opinion of attorney Barnes appeared in his February 4th article, prior to the 9th district decision to uphold the anti-Trump ruling of Seattle federal judge James Robart. It is apparent from his article that Mr. Barnes believed the 9th District would side with President Trump and do the right and legal thing by adhering to precedent set by the 9th...

    When asked if the issue of Israel was foreshadowing a divide within the Democratic Party, Dershowitz responded, “It does, and if they now appoint [Minnesota Rep.] Keith Ellison, who worked with [Nation of Islam leader] Farrakhan, to be chairman of the DNC you’re going to see a lot of people leave.” Dershowitz then issued a stern warning to the Democratic Party. “I’m going to tell you right here on this show and this is news, if they appoint Keith Ellison to be chairman of the Democratic Party, I will resign my membership to the Democratic Party after 50 years of...

    Stephen Bannon, whose appointment to serve as President-elect Donald Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor has drawn controversy in recent days over allegations of antisemitism, will attend the Zionist Organization of America’s annual awards gala in New York City on Sunday. “All administration officials are welcome to come to the ZOA dinner,” ZOA National President Morton A. Klein told The Algemeiner on Tuesday. “Any Democrat is welcome, as is any Republican. If you’re a government official and you want to come to the ZOA dinner — unless you’re extremely hostile to Israel or a Jew-hater — you’re welcome to come.”...

    Lawyers for billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein once claimed he co-founded the Clinton Foundation as they touted his relationship with the former president during plea negotiations. In an attempt to boost Epstein's image before he was sentenced for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution in 2008, his attorneys tried to emphasize his close ties with Bill Clinton, Fox News reports. A July 2007 letter to the South Florida State U.S. Attorney's office, written by lawyers Alan Dershowitz and Gerald Lefcourt, claimed that Epstein had been part of the original group that set up the Foundation's Clinton Global Initiative, focusing on...

    Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV on Friday that President Barack Obama had "absolutely" no way of justifying the $400 million cash payment to Tehran in return for four American hostages — especially since a video surfaced this week in Iranian media showing an unmarked plane and a pallet of cash. "The fact that it was done secretly," the Harvard Law School professor emeritus told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "The fact that we allowed Iran to now, essentially, extort us by asking to have it done in secret and then announcing it in public — putting the United States in...

Dershowitz, a fierce defender of Israel and avowed supporter of the Democratic Party, was referring to Arab American Institute (AAI) President James Zogby, whom Sanders tapped on Monday to help draft party policy. Dershowitz, who said he’s debated Zogby on numerous occasions, explained why he is “not surprised” that the senator from Vermont contending for the Democratic...

April 20, 2016 David Horowitz    Today a letter attacking me was sent to all members of the UCLA community – that would be nearly 50,000 people I think – by Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Jerry Kang. The Vice Chancellor’s letter attacked me as a “provocateur” who last year “put up hostile posters accusing two student organizations — the Muslim Student Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) — of being murderers and terrorists.” This is a lie. Actually it...

    Volodymyr Groysman served as mayor of Vinnytsia where he doubled the city's budget in three years before becoming the first openly Jewish speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament. The Jewish speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Volodymyr Groysman, has been elected prime minister after a months-long political crisis. The parliament on Thursday voted 250-57 for Groysman, who was nominated by President Petro Poroshenko. The outgoing prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, resigned earlier this week after weeks of pressure for him to step down. He had survived a no-confidence vote in February. Groysman has been perceived as a conciliatory figure after the governing coalition...

    Fox News.com ^ | April 18, 2016 | Alan Dershowitz
    Bernie Sanders may not be as anti-Israel as some of his radical supporters but he can no longer be called pro-Israel. The accusations he has repeatedly leveled against Israel in the past few days—that its military response to Hamas rockets and terror tunnels has been “disproportionate”—reflects both abysmal ignorance about the conduct of the Israeli Defense Force and a pervasive bias against the nation state of the Jewish people. Sanders is right, of course, that he is not alone in accusing Israel of using disproportionate force, but he is very bad company when he cites the “countries all over the...

    Both Republican and Democratic candidates have been courting Jewish voters ahead of Tuesday’s New York primary vote, looking for an edge in competitive districts with large Jewish populations. Orthodox Jews, who make up a significant portion of New York’s Jewish population, have become an important bloc in the New York primary for both parties. […] While Orthodox Jews tend to lean more Republican than Democrat by a margin of 55% to 31%, some Hasidic sects, including the staunchly anti-Zionist Satmar, have lent their support in the past to Democratic candidates. Yiddish flyers distributed by a pro-Sanders group and bearing the...
