  • Dems: Yes, Avenatti hurt us on Kavanaugh

    The only thing that’ll 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. He’s 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...
  • Senate Moves Toward Full Investigation Of Ford Legal Team And Senator Diane Feinstein

    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 Ford’s 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.
  • This Is No Mere ‘Job Interview’

    Wall Street Journal ^ | September 30, 2018 9:25 a.m. ET | Alan M. Dershowitz
    Until Judge Brett Kavanaugh was accused of horrible crimes—sexual assault, lewd conduct and even gang rape—his 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...

    FULL TITLE OF ARTICLE - Dershowitz leads push to seriously punish false accusers: Women who willfully lie should go to prison Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz believes the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh by Julie Swetnick provide an “educational moment” in dealing with women who falsely accuse men of sexual misconduct. Dershhowitz joined other panelists on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday discussing the questionable interview of the Supreme Court nominee’s third accuser. Swetnick’s NBC interview which aired Monday was filled with accounts that appeared to differ from the sworn testimony she had already provided claiming Kavanaugh had attended parties in high...
  • Dershowitz: Trump's lawyers could force Rosenstein to recuse himself from Mueller probe

    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...

    After more than twelve hours of questioning on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is back in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today for a second round. Democrats like Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Richard Blumenthal have done their best to attack Kavanaugh's character, with little substance on his record. Republican Ted Cruz, also a legal scholar, says his far-left colleagues have been unsuccessful in their repeated attempts to derail Kavanaugh's nomination."In two days of hearings in the Judiciary Committee the Democrats have not laid a single glove on Brett Kavanaugh. There's been a lot of screaming, a lot of protesting,...

    On Friday afternoon, during one of the rare liberal media acknowledgements of Louis Farrakhan's prominent presence at Aretha Franklin's funeral, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell gave an odd underreaction as she cited it as evidence of an "inclusive group" being on stage. As her Andrea Mitchell Reports show gave live coverage of the event, at 12:06 a.m. Eastern, the MSNBC host listed several of those appearing on stage. She began: "It's interesting to see the panoply of civil rights leaders. Of course, right there at the church, we see Reverend Al (Sharpton), we see the Reverend Jesse Jackson who has been...

    The loud calls for impeachment, the media’s coordinated editorial attacks and the continued outrage on the left call for an obvious diagnosis—Trump Derangement Syndrome. Thankfully, a few who might be tempted to join the attacks are sharing truths to help treat the poor people so afflicted. Have you heard anyone explain what President Trump has done that is a crime? Where is the “high crime” that is an impeachable offense? Even Special Counsel Mueller has not yet identified any crime after months of investigation. Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus and long-standing Democrat, appeared on Tucker Carson’s Fox...

    Monday, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz warned on “Fox & Friends” that “the biggest crime” you can commit in America today is to have been associated with Donald Trump. “Look, the biggest crime you can commit in America today is to a have been associated with Donald Trump,” Dershowitz said. “If you’re associated with Donald Trump, they’re going to Manafort you, they’re going Cohen you, they will do all of these things to you. They will look hard and they will search and they are going to stretch. Maybe they will find something, maybe they won’t.” Dershowitz then cautioned businessmen...

    The media is going nuts trying to use Rudy Giuliani’s “truth isn’t truth” remark on Meet the Press yesterday out of context. They hope to create a meme out of it to bludgeon Trump going forward. But noted liberal law Professor Alan Dershowitz says (3:12 mark of the video) Giuliani was absolutely right in what he said! Dershowitz explained that what Rudy meant is that a Perjury trap is when the prosecutor has a witness to testify to something as “the truth,” that would contradict the actual truthful testimony of someone being targeted. False testimony put forward as truth isn’t...

    Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, is “pleading guilty to a crime that doesn’t 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 SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight. “I don’t think there’s 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...

    Alan Dershowitz says, "I prefer to be around Democrats who hate me than Republicans who love me." (49:03) What does that mean? Does it mean that Democrats who hate him will come up with more creative legal arguments because they are pissed off? Does Alan prefer hate filled Democrats because he enjoys the challenge of correcting their flawed ways of thinking? Does it mean that despite their hated he still wants to be accepted by Democrats -- like the prodigal son coming home to Martha's Vineyard? Does it mean that he is a phony on Fox News or Judge Jeanine...

    My wife kicks my leg under the dinner table whenever guests rail against anti-Netanyahu and Israel critics. The U.N. and college students are also favorite targets. "Save your contrarian opinions for your articles, not the dinner table," she reproaches me. I'm pretty black and blue, as you might imagine. This abridged dinner talk reflects the mounting impatience Israel advocates have because of a siege mentality set in among Israelis and Anglo-olim (immigrants). It incubates from the politics of fear, and they are just not taking it any longer. I have noticed a palpable shift in attitude in the six years...

    Alan Dershowitz said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is hoping that Paul Manafort will opt to testify against the president, rather than face a lengthy prison sentence. Manafort faces numerous charges, including conspiracy to commit money laundering, making false statements and working as an unregistered agent of the government of Ukraine. If convicted, he faces decades in prison. He's also facing separate conspiracy charges in Washington, D.C. His trial is set to begin Tuesday. Appearing on "America's Newsroom," the Harvard Law professor emeritus said that if Manafort is convicted, it would give Mueller an opportunity to question him about the...

    Here is Alan Dershowitz on CNN battling it out with “Porny” Daniels Lawyer – Michael Avenatti over Avenatti’s claimed conversation with Michael Cohen and the 2016 Trump Tower Meeting. The two went after each other, with Dershowitz saying the meeting doesn’t amount to much, even if Trump knew about it prior to the meeting. Dershowitz said it is just NOT a crime even if Trump actively sought dirt on Hillary and collusion itself is not a crime! Dershowitz destroyed him, with his calm, fact-based manner. The longer it went, the more emotional Avenatti got! By the end of it, he...

    On Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz reacted to the release of a tape of a conversation between Donald Trump and Michael Cohen by stating that Cohen is “going to flip.” He added that even if everything Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis says is true, “there’s no crime. There’s no federal crime. There’s no impeachable offense.” Dershowitz began by saying, “I don’t know why anybody waived the lawyer-client communication regarding this tape.” He continued, “[H]ere you have the client maybe saying, let’s pay cash. The lawyer says, no, no, no, do it by check. And...
