Posted on 03/31/2023 10:15:36 AM PDT by Signalman
Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz says the indictment of Donald Trump is the “worst case of prosecutorial abuse I have ever seen.” And he’s not the only one calling out this raw exercise of political power over the rule of law. Thursday night, Trump’s attorney echoed that sentiment, declaring, “today the rule of law in the United States of America died.”
Trump was charged in a sealed indictment handed up on Thursday that is believed to concern a non-disclosure agreement signed by porn actress Stormy Daniels, which the legacy media calls “hush money.” Daniels was paid $130,000 by Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen. Both Cohen and Daniels have declared that Trump didn’t make the payment himself and that there was no personal relationship in 2006 between Trump and the x-rated porn actress. Daniels has since reneged on her statement and, of course, the NDA.
Dershowitz said on the Sean Hannity program on Fox News that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is playing with fire.
[W]hen you’re a democratic elected prosecutor who ran on the campaign pledge of getting Trump and you’re going to indict, forget about the former president, the man who may become the future president if he beats the incumbent who is the head of your political party. Posecutor, you’d better have the strongest case imaginable, not a case that depends on stitching together two inapplicable statutes and using Michael Cohen.
Dershowitz has often said that a “first-year law student could win this case.”
The Harvard Law School professor emeritus told The Epoch Times, “In 60 years of practice, this is the worst case of prosecutorial abuse I have ever seen.”

This isn’t abuse. It is tyranny carried out by tyrants.
And President Thomas Jefferson had something to say about tyrants.
lan Dershowitz says the indictment of Donald Trump is the “worst case of prosecutorial abuse I have ever seen.”>>>>
And this prosecutorial abuse is actionable as a federal civil case which Trumo could bring in Florida with The State of New York and Bragg personally ( not as AG) as defendants.
The tort is called “Misprison of Prosecution.”
And an injuction could be issued to stay the indictment and prosecution .
General Flynn, Roger Stone the poor J6 folks now Trump l begin to see a pattern. What l do not see is ANY actual retaliation or Justice.
Bragg will lose his job in the end. Wonder what he has been promised...a judgeship??
Opinions from law professors are like opinions from anyone else...
Well there was always Nifong, and some local DumbAssery around me.
Then there is always The Meritless Garland not going after the BiXiden Crime Family. The Mueller “Investigation”. Traitor Roberts’ decisions. No shortage of Legal Abuse of the American Public.
I like the "now afraid to fly"...and off she goes to Hawaii.
Better shut your trap counselor or you’re next. The aroma of bananas permeates the Republic right now. We’re in the last phase of the permanent Beltway authoritarian government installation.
All lefties are tyrants!
She has documents stating it never happened all the way up into trumps Presidency and post presidency if she had anything she would have produced it by now even if it was doctored evidence
True, but this particular law professor is known to be on the liberal side politically. So nobody can say that he loves Trump or Republicans, as being the basis for his opinion.
“Bragg will lose his job in the end. Wonder what he has been promised...a judgeship??”
The typical retirement job for someone who has taken one for the Democratic team is a university presidency. It’s typically a no-show job with a large payout and whatever visibility the person getting it wants. It often comes with perks like a mansion, a car, free health care, etc.
There is no case...
There is no benefit...
People are going to lose their jobs..
So, why is this being done?
Don’t say because they are stupid, because they are not....
They are conniving, diabolical and evil.
They are not stupid.
So, what is the goal?
What can they possibly hope to achieve?
Or, perhaps, what are they trying to hide?
If we have an answer to these questions, we can plan.....
Dershowitz likes Trump because he moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Period.
What you are flailing about for is something called “malicious prosecution” not “misprision of prosecution.” Prosecutors and judges enjoy immunity so this is a non-starter here.
The Younger Abstention doctrine also complicates the rest of your supposed solution.
They are still scared to death of Trump and his influence.
Half the country is still so blind with TDS that the facts don’t matter.
I just don’t understand why the indictment remains sealed, so people could speak more definitively, rather than always having to qualify their opinions.
