    The four criminal trials currently scheduled for former President Donald Trump are amongst the most significant and controversial trials in American history. It is imperative that they also be among the fairest trials in our history. Regardless of the results—acquittal, conviction, hung jury—the trials must be perceived as having been fair. The defendant must receive the benefit of all of his constitutional and statutory rights. Not only is Donald Trump on trial in these cases, but the American system of justice is on trial, not only in America but around the world. The defendant is not only a former president;...

    President Biden has often made reference to his close relationship with Israel and Israeli leaders over the last half century as a way of proving his bona fides on matters relating to the Jewish state. The Obama administration had badly strained those relationships, but when Biden was elected in 2020, many hoped and some predicted that his would be an administration far friendlier to Israel. And on the surface it has been; the steady current of hostility that emanated from Obama’s White House has not been present in Biden’s. Still, more than halfway through the 46th president’s term, the facts...

    Just how bad has David Weiss handled the investigation into Hunter Biden and the multiple allegations of tax fraud and weapons charges? Alan Dershowitz lamented the decision to keep the man who attempted to engineer a smelly plea deal as special counsel, scoffing at the notion that Weiss has demonstrated any independence at all.Instead, Dershowitz called on his friend of 40 years, Joe Biden, to “appoint an independent outside special counsel to investigate the relationship between Hunter Biden and President Biden.” Dersh wants to be able to vote for Biden next year, but if the only independent probe into Biden...

    During an appearance on Fox News, Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz suggested the country was getting much closer to “banana republic” status following former President Donald Trump’s indictment in Fulton County, GA. Dershowitz said the country had moved from two bananas to “three, maybe four” after the Georgia indictment. “[T]he idea is we are all part of the United States, and we have one rule for Democrats, one rule for Republicans, one rule for Martha’s Vineyard, one rule for Nantucket, one rule for Georgia,” he said. “And you cannot start making crimes out of things that the Democrats did....

    “This changes the rules of the game,” Dershowitz said. “This basically says RICO is not just applicable to organized crime or to organized, commercial crime with hierarchies, but it also applies to protests against election results. It’s going to deter and chill people from challenging legitimate election results.”

    Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Monday that District Attorney Fani Willis had indicted former President Donald Trump and 18 others for a “conspiracy” that was exactly what Democrats did in challenging the 2000 election. The tactics of the Trump team, including claims of fraud, were neither more nor less than what Democrats had done in claiming that the election had been stolen from then-Vice President Al Gore by Republicans pushing for then-Governor George W. Bush. Fox News reported: Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, speaking to Fox News Digital, criticized the pending indictment, calling Trump’s actions “very similar” to...

    Martha’s Vineyard can’t turn the page on Alan Dershowitz. The Harvard Law professor and longtime island denizen says his works have been banished from the local book fair. “I’ve been canceled,” Dershowitz, 84, told Newsmax host Greta Greta Van Susteren Friday. “My books are not allowed to be sold at the Martha’s Vineyard Chilmark book fair because I defended Donald Trump. Until I defended Donald Trump, my books were featured every year at the book fair.”

    Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | August 02, 2023 | Harold Hutchison
    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said that Special Counsel Jack Smith could himself be indicted if the indictment of former President Donald Trump is thrown out. Smith secured a four-count indictment of Trump relating to his efforts to contest the results of the 2020 election after he previously secured a 37-count indictment against Trump in June based on an investigation into allegations surrounding classified documents, which was supplemented with a superseding indictment issued Thursday that included charges against Carlos De Oliveira, a maintenance worker at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida estate owned by former President Trump. Trump faces arraignment on the charges...

That everything he did was fraudulent. That he conspired with un named lawyers mostly.”He continued, “I read the indictment carefully. There is no smoking gun. There is no one who is credibly prepared to testify that Donald Trump said to him, I know personally, I lost the election. There...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued that the judge who has to approve of Hunter Biden’s plea deal needs to call Attorney General Merrick Garland, U.S. Attorney David Weiss, and the six witnesses who whistleblower Gary Shapley’s legal team say can corroborate his statements before accepting the deal. Dershowitz said, “[T]he judge who is sentencing Hunter Biden and who has to approve of the plea deal, must call Garland, must call Weiss, must call these six witnesses, and must say, look, Hunter Biden’s lawyers, we know you want the deal to...

Renowned Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz recently offered his opinion on the case during an appearance on Newsmax in which he indicated that Trump’s situation is precarious, but his fate isn’t necessarily sealed.According to Dershowitz, the indictment against Donald Trump is partly serious and partly expected, as possessing classified material may not be damning due to potential defenses under the Presidential Records Act. However, Dershowitz...

    Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz warned of the "dangerous" consequences posed by the federal charges launched against former President Donald Trump, arguing the indictment's "weak" appearance does not meet historic precedent. "It has to be at least as strong as the case against Richard Nixon, which we will remember led not to Democrats to demand his resignation, but Republicans, his own colleagues came to him and said, this case is so strong that we can't support you," Dershowitz said Friday on "Mornings with Maria." "I haven't seen any suggestion that Republicans agree with this indictment," the professor continued....

    An attorney representing some of the women who say they are survivors of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein sent a letter to Justice Department officials demanding an investigation into what she says is the FBI's "seriously bungled examination" of the late financier. Lawyer Jennifer Freeman, an attorney with Marsh Law Firm who says she is "counsel to many survivors of the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking conspiracy," wrote a letter last week to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. "The FBI utterly failed to investigate serious allegations involving Epstein’s, and perhaps others', child...
