    The constitutional law scholar warned of the precedent such an impeachment would set Harvard Law professor emeritus and constitutional law scholar Alan Dershowitz said that while he does not believe it would result in a Senate trial, impeaching President Trump over what he said in an address prior to protesters storming the Capitol building on Wednesday would provide a "loaded weapon" to both parties to use at their will in the future. Speaking to Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," Dershowitz first said that even if Trump is impeached for a second time, the Senate will not be able to hear...
  • Democrats Cannot Impeach Trump, and You Can’t Impeach Him After Leaving Office: Prof. Alan Dershowitz

    Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Democrats have virtually no chance of successfully impeaching and removing President Donald Trump before Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. “The case cannot come to trial in the Senate. Because the Senate has rules, and the rules would not allow the case to come to trial until, according to the majority leader, until 1 p.m. on January 20th, an hour after President Trump leaves office,” Dershowitz said in a Fox Business interview on Sunday. Dershowitz, who defended Trump during the Senate impeachment trial about a year ago, suggested that the Constitution does not allow...
  • Dershowitz: ‘Not Fair’ Big Tech Companies Can Censor Users and Have Immunity

    Dershowitz said the social media giants are acting as platforms while also acting as publishers, which he said is “not fair” because they have both censorship and immunity. “Facebook says we don’t like this, and Twitter says we don’t like attacks on Hunter Biden. And once you act as a publisher, you’re a publisher. You know what it means — I mean, you are a publisher. And you can be sued because you’re a publisher,” Dershowitz told host John Catsimatidis. “But they are platforms. They can’t be platforms at the same time and act like publishers. They should have to...

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz said on Sunday that he believes the Supreme Court may get involved in adjudicating on whether state legislators have the power to pick alternate Electoral College electors who would vote for President Donald Trump if legislatures determine there was voter fraud, even after an initial slate of electors has cast its votes on Dec. 14. Dershowitz made the remarks in an interview with Fox News in which he was first asked about what he thought of claims made by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, who said there was a pattern of fraudulent activity that swayed the election in...

    Liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz on Tuesday laid out the Trump campaign's legal strategy for winning the White House through a number of legal challenges. According to Dershowitz, the strategy is to pull electoral votes away from former Vice President Joe Biden. "The clock is a double-edged sword in this election because if they don't have enough time but if they can put forward a sufficiently strong case then they may be able to get some Republican Secretaries of States or legislatures to say, 'Look, we just don't have enough time to certify these electors' and if they can bring...
  • Why Won't Joe Biden Repudiate Anti-Semitic Democrats? | Opinion

    Newsweek ^ | 10/14/20 | Bruce Abramson and Jeff Ballabon
    At the first debate, Joe Biden took ownership of today's Democrats with an uncharacteristically clear proclamation: "I am the Democratic Party." With that, Biden assumed responsibility for repudiating and distancing himself from the anti-Semitism surging through his party's ranks. Anti-Semitism has been on full display among Democratic leaders and left-wing protest groups alike in recent years. Leaders of the Women's March, for example, proved so undeniably anti-Semitic that even former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz felt compelled to distance herself. Yet those same anti-Semites—Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory—were featured speakers at this summer's Democratic convention. The Women's March since recruited new...

    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...

    The Jeffrey Epstein case is full of bad characters and criminal actions, but perhaps no actions were more abhorrent than those made by Robert Mueller’s FBI. Last night court documents related to the Epstein case from 2008 were released to the public These documents show criminal actions by the rich and famous in abusing underage girls provided to them by Epstein. Epstein was eventually slapped on the wrist with a sentence that many claim was totally inadequate. Techno Fog on Twitter was one of the first to review the released documents last night. His first tweets noted that the documents...

    A trove of documents released late Thursday could shed light on Ghislaine Maxwell’s relationship with the late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The data include records of a 2011 meeting between accuser Virginia Giuffre and her lawyers where she talked about the powerful people in Epstein’s orbit who she said either flew on his private Boeing 727 or stayed on his private island in the Caribbean. One of the names mentioned was that of former President Bill Clinton. At one point in the conversation, the subject turned to Epstein’s powerful friends. Jack Scarola, one of Giuffre’s lawyers, asked...

    A federal judge ruled Wednesday that attorneys for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s accuser Virginia Guiffre must destroy certain Epstein files that were improperly obtained.The ruling came after attorney Alan Dershowitz requested access to the documents, Newsweek reports.  Dershowitz said the documents would be an asset to his defense in his 2019 defamation case against Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, who said Dershowitz was one of the men with whom Epstein forced her to have sex.“The Court is not convinced that the production of the [Ghislaine] Maxwell materials to Mr. Dershowitz would even vindicate those important objectives beyond making life easier for Mr. Dershowitz,” Senior...

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz urged “everyone” to “keep an open mind” about convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s cohort Ghislaine Maxwell after the FBI arrested her Thursday. Dershowitz, who has acted as an attorney for notable figures including both President Donald Trump and Epstein himself, spoke out in defense of Maxwell in a Friday op-ed for The Spectator. Dershowitz formerly helped negotiate a plea deal that gave federal immunity to Epstein and his co-conspirators in 2008, requiring Epstein to serve 13 months in jail in Palm Beach with practically daily work release. The former Epstein attorney has been accused of sexual abuse...

    A federal court in New York City has moved to further restrict access to long-sought-after secret files in the Jeffrey Epstein saga. In a Wednesday order, Senior U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska determined that attorneys for Epstein survivor Virginia Roberts Giuffre had improperly gained access to many of those highly-prized documents. Preska determined that certain discovery materials covered by a years-old protective order “are not properly in possession” of Giuffre’s current legal team and “thus must be destroyed.” That means that they can’t have copies of the documents in question; it does not mean that all copies of the documents...

    A federal judge has ordered the attorneys of Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre to destroy documents related to Ghislaine Maxwell, an Epstein confidant who has been frequently named as his former collaborator in child sex trafficking. Senior U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska made the determination in lawsuits Giuffre and her attorneys, Cooper and Kirk, have filed against Maxwell and former Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz. Preska rejected Dershowitz’s attempt to change a protective order to receive documents for his defense in the defamation case while ordering Giuffre’s attorneys to destroy documents from a previously-settled case involving Maxwell. Preska wrote in her...

  • Mystery person in Alan Dershowitz's defamation case against Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre begs judge to block the release of cache of documents that expose pedophile's elite social circle

    A mystery person in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal begged a federal judge today not to turn over a trove of confidential papers listing some of the dead pedophile's closest associates to the celebrity attorney Alan Dershowitz. The bombshell papers are part of a historic defamation case that Virginia Giuffre, previously known as Virginia Roberts, brought against the warped financier's alleged madam and facilitator, Ghislaine Maxwell. The cache is subject to a historic protective order but Dershowitz argues it contains depositions and materials crucial for his own defense as he battles Giuffre in a separate, ongoing defamation case.

Host Tucker Carlson began the segment by acknowledging the argument that people “don’t have a right to endanger other people, your right to punch ends at the tip of my nose” before asking Dershowitz whether “the government has a right to endanger” people who may have an adverse reaction to a vaccine by forcing them to take it. “The Supreme Court has said yes, and if the case...
