  • Alan Dershowitz: I Don’t See Any Evidence of Collusion – Even if There Was, Not a Crime (VIDEO)

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/18/2017 | Jim Hoft
    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...
  • Alan Dershowitz: Trump did not obstruct justice in firing James Comey

    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...

    Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told CNN’s Don Lemon on Tuesday night that President Donald Trump was well within his rights to fire former FBI director James Comey, and that there was no need for a special prosecutor in the investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. “Should Comey be the director of the FBI? The answer to that is no,” he said, noting that he had called earlier for Comey to resign. “He lost his credibility. … A lot of this is his fault.”

    Alan Dershowitz, a prominent Harvard Law School professor and liberal author, slammed the Democratic National Committee as hypocritical for politicizing White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s Hitler gaffe while ignoring its own problem with anti-Semitism. Mr. Dershowitz said on “CNN Tonight” that he’s willing to give Mr. Spicer “a pass” after the press secretary initially suggested during a briefing Tuesday, which also marked Passover, that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons during WWII. “What happened here is the guy screwed up,” Mr. Dershowitz said, according to a clip published by Real Clear Politics. “He apologized, and he apologized from his...

    There has been powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), to elect Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) chairman. If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting. I will become an independent, continuing to vote for the best candidates, most of whom, I assume, will still be Democrats. But I will not contribute to the DNC or support it as an institution. My loyalty to my country and my principles and my heritage exceeds any loyalty to my party. I will urge other like-minded people...

    Tomorrow the Democratic National Committee (DNC) will have to choose the direction of the Democratic Party, as well as its likely composition. It will be among the most important choices the DNC has ever had to make. There has been a powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by senator Bernie Sanders, to elect Keith Ellison chairman.

    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...

    “(President Obama) called me into the Oval Office before the election and he said to me, ‘Alan, I want your support. And I have to tell you, I will always have Israel’s back.’ I didn’t realize that what he meant was that he’d have (Israel’s) back to stab them in the back.” So spoke this week a livid Alan Dershowitz, the famed Harvard professor, legal scholar and criminal lawyer whose judgment American Jews have long trusted and respected. Dershowitz now realizes that Obama had repeatedly duped him, and that through his endorsements of Obama, Dershowitz in turn duped many American...

    On Tuesday's broadcast of the Fox Business Network's "The Intelligence Report," Harvard Law Professor Emeritus, attorney, and author Alan Dershowitz argued Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) "would be great for the Republicans," if elected DNC Chair and was a "part of" Louis Farrakhan's anti-Semitism "for years." Dershowitz said picking Ellison would be "about the dumbest thing, among many dumb things, the Democrats have done. After losing white, middle class, working-class people in the Midwest, you're going to pick somebody who for nine years was associated with a hate America, anti-American, anti-Western person? It's just nuts, and they’re going to lose a...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” attorney and author Alan Dershowitz criticized President Barack Obama for not calling out Black Lives matter and Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) for their bigotry, and “we on the liberal side have to call out the bigotry on the left as strongly as people on the right have to call the bigotry of the far right.” Dershowitz said, “President Obama hasn’t done enough. He hasn’t done enough in calling out Black Lives Matter when they included an argument about genocide, calling Israel a genocidal country. He hasn’t done enough on Keith Ellison, who for years...

    Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz reacted to outgoing Sen. Harry Reid's speech on the Senate floor Tuesday where he lambasted Donald Trump for his appointment of Steve Bannon to be one of his chief advisors. On MSNBC, Alan Dershowitz shared he receives anti-Semitic responses from "hard-left" students when he delivers speeches at colleges. He invited Reid to go to college campuses and witness how popular anti-Semitism is from the left. Dershowitz talked about "unsafe spaces" for Christians and Jews who support Israel. "What was seen in this country was a very dangerous development on both sides," Dershowitz explained in an interview...

    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.”...

    Alan Dershowitz, a staunch Democrat and emeritus law professor at Harvard University, is hitting back against the smears claiming White House appointee Steve Bannon is anti-Semitic, arguing it is “not legitimate to call somebody an anti-Semite because you might disagree with their policies.” Speaking in an interview with this reporter, Dershowitz stated: I think we have to be very careful before we accuse any particular individual of being an anti-Semite. The evidence certainly suggests that Mr. Bannon has very good relationships with individual Jews. My former researcher, Joel Pollak, is an Orthodox Jew who takes off the Jewish holidays, who...

    Clinton-supporting trial lawyer Alan Dershowitz hung up on radio host Mark Simone Friday after Simone confronted Dershowitz with a Clinton for-profit college scandal. Dershowitz spoke about Donald “Trump’s instability” and said that “We’re also buying a guy who engaged in massive fraud with Trump University.” New York radio host Simone then turned the tables to focus on the Clintons’ Laureate University scandal. Simone said that Bill Clinton received $18 million to serve as chancellor of the for-profit college and Hillary Clinton’s State Department awarded them $50 million in U.S. government grants.http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/11/04/alan-dershowitz-goes-berserk-over-clinton-college-scandal-hangs-up-on-mark-simone/

    Hard left activists are trying to exclude Jews who do not renounce Israel from "progressive" organizations. Last year, Rabbi Susan Talve, a longtime activist on race issues in the St. Louis area was told that her advocacy for Israel was incompatible with the objectives of Black Lives Matter: "Solidarity from Ferguson to Palestine has become a central tenet of the movement" she was informed, because "Israeli and U.S. state oppression are deeply interconnected." Similarly, a student who attended a Black Lives Matter rally at Northwestern University last year was told "you support Israel, so you cannot also support us." Recently,...

    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...

    Alan Dershowitz, a staunch Democrat and emeritus law professor at Harvard University, stated in an interview on Sunday that the decision by Hillary Clinton’s vice president pick, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, to boycott Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress was a “mark against” the candidate. Still, Dershowitz maintained that the Clinton-Kaine ticket was “far better for America and for Israel” then the Donald Trump and Mike Pence ticket. Dershowitz also sounded off about the decision by Kaine and other prominent democrats to support the international nuclear deal with Iran. Kaine helped generate support for the Obama administration’s nuclear deal...

    Vice President Joe Biden’s jabs at Israel’s prime minister during a speech Monday evening at a gathering for a left-wing Israel lobbying group amount to “payback from the White House,” retired Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz told The Algemeiner on Tuesday. In an address delivered at J Street’s annual convention in Washington DC, Biden singled out Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for criticism, expressing his “overwhelming frustration” with the Israeli leader’s policies. “I firmly believe that the actions that Israel’s government has taken over the past several years — the steady and systematic expansion of settlements, the legalization of outposts,...
