    Alan Dershowitz is speaking out for the first time since Jeffrey Epstein‘s indictment. The legal scholar — who was reportedly ticketed to appear on Hannity Monday night, but was not seen — broke his silence Tuesday morning on local radio in New York. Speaking with host Joe Piscopo, Dershowitz highlighted his top-line takeaway from the Epstein indictment. “The indictment itself is fairly bare bones,” he said. “From my point of view, the important thing is that it doesn’t mention me.” Dershowitz has been accused of participating in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking operation. Virginia Giuffre, who is suing Dershowitz for defamation,...

    Way down the article, the author squeezes this in: Brown’s stories took note of the extensive network of political, business and legal allies assembled by Epstein over the years and questioned the extent to which that network may have protected him or helped cushion his fall. It included: A former president, Bill Clinton; the U.K.’s Prince Andrew; powerhouse attorneys such as Alan Dershowitz, Kenneth Starr, and Roy Black; and business contacts such as Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, and Leslie Wexner, the owner of retailer Victoria’s Secret.

    Democrats will regret issuing a subpoena to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who agreed to testify later this summer, according to Alan Dershowitz. Mueller cannot refuse to answer questions from Republicans not covered by "privilege," Dershowitz claimed on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." "I'm trying to stop them from shooting themselves in the foot," he said.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refused Sunday to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp, after a Jewish group had invited her to tour that camp and others this summer to educate herself about the facts of the Holocaust. Last Monday evening, Ocasio-Cortez compared detention facilities for illegal aliens caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to “concentration camps,” adding the phrase “never again,” which commonly refers to the Nazi Holocaust. The remark drew outrage and criticism, even from fellow Democrats. Nevertheless, Ocasio-Cortez doubled down, first claiming that she had not been referring to Nazi Germany, then drawing parallels to the U.S. internment of Japanese-Americans...

    President Trump is within his rights to invoke executive privilege, including when it comes to former White House communications director Hope Hicks, according to Alan Dershowitz. Congressional lawmakers often claim presidents are not "above the law" in many of these cases, but Congress itself is also not "above the law," Dershowitz told host Laura Ingraham on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." "Each branch of the government has a form of executive privilege," Dershowitz said Wednesday night. "The president is perfectly entitled to invoke executive privilege. If they think it goes too far ... let the courts decide.

    Yesterday I wrote that Trump had goaded democrats and Pelosi into doing what he wanted, i.e. ban foreign foreign opposition research. He has repeatedly said that what happened to him should never happen to another President. But there's more and the left still doesn't get it and I need to spell it out even more clearly. Trump has baited the left into making all kinds of caustic remarks and they have swallowed the lure. Analysis of this Trump clip consumed most of the hour with O’Donnell interviewing several guests, including MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin, who went on an angry tirade...

    Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said on Thursday he would back former Vice President Joe Biden over President Trump if the two were facing off in the general election next year. During an interview on SiriusXM, Dershowitz told "The Dan Abrams Show" that when it comes to his vote in 2020, he will evaluate the "totality" of Trump's record in office and how a Democratic nominee like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, would "present a real dilemma" for him.

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation should never have been written, according to Alan Dershowitz. The Constitution does not explicitly provide for special counsels or special prosecutors, Dershowitz said Tuesday on "The Ingraham Angle." He added such offices are "inconsistent" with the founding document, adding that there wasn't a pretense for the several-hundred-page conclusion to the investigation into President Trump. Dershowitz also claimed Democrats have no legal right to have Mueller testify before them. "Prosecutors have a right to say only one thing: We have concluded there's no evidence sufficient to charge the president with Russian collusion...

    Famed Harvard law professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should be "ashamed of herself" for reportedly saying she wanted to see President Trump in prison. Dershowitz also defended the president's right to fight back. "I have to tell you, as a liberal Democrat, I'm appalled at Nancy Pelosi. The idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system -- and calling for the imprisonment of the president of the United States without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense -- it's just outrageous," Dershowitz said on Fox News'...

    The Hill ^ | May 22, 2019 | Alan Dershowitz
    When I came of age during the 1950s, liberals and civil libertarians were deeply concerned about the abuses of congressional investigations to expose communists and “fellow travelers.” Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy was using congressional committees to do his dirty work. The committee leaders would claim that they had legitimate legislative purposes in subpoenaing actors, professors, and government employees to interrogate them about their past political affiliations. The purported purposes were to legislate more effective controls over communist influence in our government and to conduct oversight of the executive branch. Most liberals and civil libertarians saw through this ruse. The obvious...

    Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who wrote the introduction for the final Mueller Report that the former special counsel turned into the Justice Department following the “Russian collusion” witch hunt designed to depose POTUS Donald Trump, said Friday it’s time for Congress to get rid of the position altogether. In an appearance on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham program, Dershowitz agreed with Attorney General William Barr’s statement that Mueller “should have come to a conclusion” regarding whether or not the president actually obstructed justice — a preposterous allegation in the first place, given his intense cooperation with Mueller’s probe.

    Now-former Special Counsel Robert Mueller is trying to have it both ways. When Mueller told reporters Wednesday that “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” he overstepped his bounds as a prosecutor. Mueller was insinuating that President Trump has not been exonerated of wrongdoing, while refusing to explicitly declare the president guilty of any crime. As Alan Dershowitz noted in The Hill, FBI Director James Comey was “universally criticized” for attempting a similar political dance during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. At the time, Comey had said that there...

    The irony was that Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn was charged with and plead guilty to making false statements to the FBI. By his own standards Robert Mueller was guilty of making “false statements” in his parting gift to Democrat impeachment seekers. He was not, however, under legal oath which is maybe why Democrats did not want him to be questioned by Congress in a hearing beforehand. Mueller has had to walk back his lie about Office of Legal Counsel policy kept him from indicting a sitting president. In his alleged “farewell” address, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller managed to channel...

    Deshowitz took exception with this statement in his piece, “Dershowitz: Shame on Robert Mueller for exceeding his role.” He began by saying that what Mueller said Wednesday “is worse than the statement made by then FBI Director James Comey regarding Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign,” regarding the recklessness with which she handled classified material. “He went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Democrats in Congress who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump,” Dershowitz wrote. “By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats...

    At a hastily arranged Wednesday press conference, Special Counsel Robert Mueller proved that he was never interested in justice or the rule of law. If there were any doubts about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s political intentions, his unprecedented press conference on Wednesday should put them all to rest. As he made abundantly clear during his doddering reading of a prepared statement that repeatedly contradicted itself, Mueller had no interest in the equal application of the rule of law. He gave the game, and his nakedly political intentions, away repeatedly throughout his statement. ... According to Mueller and his team, charged...

    The Mueller Report, written by Mueller himself with a forward by Alan Dershowitz, a seeming Trump ally (perhaps) is now on pre-sale via Amazon. How can this be? Legally, the report must first be submitted to Barr, who will then decide what will or will not be released to Congress/Public?.....I have been trying make sense of this for many days.....and the only logical conclusion I can come to is that the Mueller Investigation really may be one of the largest sting operations in our history.....I hope I am correct.
