Famed attorney and Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz filed a defamation suit against CNN on Tuesday seeking $300 million for what he called a "willful, deliberate, malicious effort to destroy my credibility."
Dershowitz told Fox News that CNN selectively edited a clip of his remarks from the Senate floor during President Trump's impeachment trial where he broke down the illegalities surrounding a "quid pro quo" as a member of the president's defense team.
The Constitutional scholar alleges in the lawsuit that the news outlet propagated a sea of lies by re-airing only part of his quote, which he believes was part of a deliberate effort "from the very top" to frame him for claiming that the President of the United States could commit illegal acts as long as he thought it would help his reelection and that his reelection was in the public interest," The Wrap reported.

but ol Dershie will STILL vote democrat.......
stubborn to the end
Well I hope such an order would come from the Very Top.
If any shenanigans like that was put on the air by a lowly producer on his own, he would have to be very stupid or would have to just want to make trouble for the network deliberately and not care if he ever worked in TV news again.
Are you in at polling Booth with him? :-)
You are likely right but one never knows.
Remember Trump wasn’t always a solid Conservative Republican and at some points he sounded a little bit like a Democrat.
I myself have nodded and smiled during interviews in Manhattan when some left-wing garbage was spouted. It’s funny how needing a roof and food will do that to you :)
Then once I was secure enough in my job I would let my real views go.
Maybe Alan isn’t quite there yet.
But common sense says his actions too many times do not make him seem like a solid Democrat
Think so ?
Dershowitz may have had or still have lifelong Leftist views, but at some point there may be an awakening once the scorpion stings you.
He seems intellectually honest, so I don’t/can’t see him going with the with an obvious dementia Biden presidency.
(of course I could be wrong)
CNN: Welcome to West Covington, Part DEUX!
I HOPE he’ll pull the lever for Trump if he’s honest enough.
I have a cousin in LA who works on the very fringes of the entertainment industry (i.e. hollywood)
She posts a lot on FB and for the most part is on the right side of the political coin, but she always has to make a point in her arguments “and I’m a democrat”
I wonder if she has to through that in as an insurance clause.......because deep down she ain’t no modern day democrat.
Has to do with abortion.
I don't know... Sometimes a conservative is just a democrat that's been mugged.
in 2020 we can update that statement to be
a republican is a democrat who hasn’t been cancelled yet
a republican is a democrat who hasn’t been doxxed yet
a republican is a democrat who hasn’t been looted yet
I trust he wins but as others have written in this thread, the useful idiot will still vote for democrats.
Wheres the he was a passenger on the” lolita express” lawsuit?
cnn needs to be put out of business.
BINGO!!! Just another Jew Stuck on STUPID, just like most blacks......go figure.
Amen to that one
Deny everything, make counter-accusations
To his credit Alan Dershowitz did speak in support of President Trump at the impeachment hearing.
Hes a liberal, not a leftist.
