    Attorney and frequent Fox News guest Alan Dershowitz criticized host Sean Hannity on Monday for not disclosing his relationship with Michael Cohen, President Trump's attorney, during his frequent discussions about Cohen in recent weeks. Dershowitz, a defender of Trump amid his legal woes, was brought on to discuss former FBI Director James Comey’s Sunday night interview on ABC News, but first addressed the Monday revelation that Hannity is the previously unnamed client of Cohen. “I really think you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen,” Dershowitz said, calling it a “complicated situation.” “It was minimal,” Hannity responded. “I understand that,...

    Full Title: Justice Department violated Michael Cohen's constitutional rights just by seizing his records, Alan Dershowitz tells DailyMail.com – hours before Harvard law professor has dinner with Trump A famed Harvard legal scholar is raising concerns about the Justice Department's ability to responsibly handle some documents seized Monday from Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's offices. Among the scooped-up papers, and lurking on phones and hard drives, is likely to be a cache of material that's covered by attorney-client privilege. Prosecutors are not permitted access to those files, and the DOJ's standard practice is to set up a 'taint team' – a...

    It was Rod Rosenstein who signed off on Mueller's wish to raid Donald Trump's personal attorney: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein personally gave the green light for the FBI to raid the hotel room and office of President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, The New York Times first reported. Rosenstein oversees special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election. The Cohen raid came, in part, from a referral from Mueller’s team. The raid was executed by the office of the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. The man running that office, interim U.S. attorney...

  • Rosenstein Secret Special Counsel Memo Was Written After the Feds Already Raided Manafort’s House

    04/03/2018 9:28:18 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 67 replies
    The memo gives Mueller a more specific description of his authority and states that he can investigate Paul Manafort for any “crimes arising out of payments he received from the Ukrainian government before and during the tenure of President Viktor Yanukovych.” And that’s pretty much what Manafort was indicted for. Here’s the weird part about this: The Rosenstein “secret” memo revealed in this week’s court filing is dated August 2, 2017. According to media reports, Paul Manfort’s home was raided July 26, 2017. So that means Rosenstein’s laid out the more specified scope and definition of authority for the special...

    Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, who by the way is a well known Democrat, has said on Monday on Fox News? Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” that special counsel Robert Mueller has a credibility problem, and that’s quite big considering the source. Here’s Alan Dershowitz: “I’m not a Republican, I’m a Democrat. I think he has a credibility problem. He should have been more careful about who he hired. He should have disclosed he had taken that FBI agent off the case after his messages came out. I think he has a credibility problem on these emails without a warrant. I think...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued that it would be bad strategy to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller because Mueller’s sloppiness will make him want to make any close calls in the president’s favor. Dershowitz said, “I would play the refs. I would keep the pressure on Mueller. Mueller’s very concerned about his reputation. He has been accused of conflict of interest, of not getting warrants, of using an improper source for a warrant. They have him where they want him. He’ll probably want to lean over backwards now...

    The Forward ^ | December 22, 2017 | Josh Nathan-Kazis
    At the end of a meeting with President Donald Trump this fall about the Middle East peace process, attorney Alan Dershowitz turned the conversation to a matter closer to home: The prison sentence of Sholom Rubashkin, the Kosher meatpacking executive then serving a 27-year prison sentence for bank fraud. Rubashkin, whose kosher meat firm AgriProcessors was the subject of a Forward expose in 2006 over the mistreatment of its workers, has been a case célčbre in some circles since his conviction in 2010. Dershowitz is among Rubashkin’s most prominent supporters — and was probably the first to bring the matter...
  • Is James Comey A Serial Liar?

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 3/20/2018 | IBD Editorial Board
    Scandal: When President Trump accused former FBI director James Comey of lying under oath in a tweet on Saturday, defenders rushed to Comey's aid. But Comey has been saying a lot of things that are decidedly fact challenged. Trump's tweet was sparked by a statement made by Comey's deputy, Andrew McCabe, after he was fired at the recommendation of the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility. McCabe had been accused of misleading an inspector general investigation about leaking information to the press about the Hillary Clinton investigation. In his statement, McCabe forcefully defended his contact with the media, denying that it...

    The Republicans have now released the memo containing their version of what is in the controversial FSIA application. Not surprisingly, the Democrats have a different version. It should be easy to decide whose “truth” is more credible: Let the American public see the application itself — instead of second-hand, partisan accounts — and let us decide for ourselves. The problem with that obvious solution is that the application is currently classified. But classification should never be used – as it often is – for political benefit or to protect agencies or individuals from just criticism. Let a nonpartisan expert decide...
  • Dershowitz: I Wouldn’t Have Campaigned for Obama If I Knew About Farrakhan Photo

At the time, Obama was a state senator, and according to Dershowitz, had he known Obama had posed with Farrakhan, he wouldn’t have supported him in his initial 2008 bid for the White House.

    Former Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz slammed former President Barack Obama over the weekend, following the revelation that the then-US Senator had met with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Capitol Hill more than a decade ago. Last week, a photograph taken during a 2005 meeting between Farrakhan and Obama, then a freshly-minted US Senator from Illinois, was revealed to the public for the first time. The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told Fox News Thursday night that the Congressional Black Caucus had arranged the meeting, and subsequently pressed Muhammad to conceal the photograph. The picture shows a smiling Senator...

    “I’m not worried about a few dozen people with swastikas who want to replace the Jews, because they’re our past,” Dershowitz explained. “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 our leaders,” he lamented. “When I used to teach 150 students in my first year of criminal law, I’d look around and I’d say, ‘Future president. Future chief justice. Future editorial director of the New York Times. Future managing partner of Goldman Sachs. They’re our future. And that’s why we have to worry much more...

Keith Ellison as deputy chair of the DNC after lying about his contacts with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, on whom new scrutiny has been applied to his long history of anti-Semitic declarations. “He ought to be treated the way we treat David Duke,” Dershowitz demanded, adding, “If any Republican dared to meet with David Duke, that would be the end of their career. … We don’t have affirmative action when it comes to bigotry.”Don’t hold your...
  • Dershowitz: Public Must Find Out If McCabe or Comey Were 'Testi-Lying'

    Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said it is crucial that the American public find out whether former FBI chiefs James Comey and Andrew McCabe are "testi-lying." Dershowitz said that the recently fired McCabe should waive his right to privacy so that the public can view reports by two intra-bureau agencies looking into possible misconduct by the Virginian. "Then we can decide for ourselves [if his firing was appropriate]," Dershowitz said. He said McCabe's testimony conflicts with Comey's when it comes to whether McCabe was authorized to leak information about an investigation to the press.
