      really? you respected him when he defended OJ? or any of the others who were clearly guilty? Dershowitz has always been on the wrong side of justice.

    Conspiracy and with Flynn this investigation points to espionage. There are very few options for any defence of the actions taken by trumps people.

      who cares what anyone looks like? it is their intelligence and content of what they are saying that matters. it's the opposite on Fox - they all look like super models but have empty heads.

    Trump cannot understand the difference between a President and King and that America is a Republic and not a Monarchy. You would think that is one of the most fundamental concepts you would have to grasp before taking the job.

      he's always been like that. he defended OJ ffs. Dershowitz doesnt believe in justice... he consistently works to undermine it.

    Can we stop talking about collusion? Based on what we now know, we should be talking about collaboration and conspiracy.
    That a foreign government may have a preface as to whom they would want to see in power is understandable, we do it too. That they may actively try to influence the election is undesirable, though is something that we must acknowledge that we have little control over beyond taking action by means of laws, regulations and practices to minimize, if not block their activities.
    And, when a politician, their campaign and their people, whether staff or volunteers start to engage with them and try to use whatever resources and assistance that they can get from them, rather than reporting them to the proper authorities, they are now engaging in treason, as they are now actively supporting the policy objectives of a foreign power and are working on implementing them. Encouraging the hacking of email accounts is a crime, in most circumstances, except if it is with the permission of a valid search warrant. And, indicating that they would ease sanctions imposed on a government that interfered in their country’s election, as well as any coverup and attempt to impede or obstruct justice, as these are also not in their country’s interest, is criminal and is treason.

    • RedroomStudios
      RedroomStudios Year ago +1

      collusion is simply a broad term to describe what was going on. there is no crime named collusion. it has been well outlined in segments such as this what actual charges could be applied.

    Hey, Dershowitz- The President doesn't make the law. Or do you just want attention?

    • RedroomStudios
      RedroomStudios Year ago

      not that I agree with Dershowitz at all but his argument was that the President chooses which laws will be enforced, which is correct. his problem comes in defining what qualifies as obstruction of justice. he is saying as long as the President does not do something illegal such as pay off people to lie then there is no obstruction of justice. and that is absolute BS - what matters is the intent of his actions whether they are constitutional unto themselves. yes, the Pres has power to fire the head of FBI but when his reason for doing so is to thwart an investigation into Trump campaign dealings with Russia then it is clearly obstruction of justice. Dershowitz is always on the wrong side of justice.

    Let’s be honest, Donald Trump is a stand up guy! He’s a loyal fella who will do his utmost to support those around him who have been loyal to him! 🤔 Actually?!?!?! Come on! The only reason he’s obstructing justice is to save one person! The only person Donald Trump has ever and will ever care about and that is Donald Trump!

    if you are in an office of authority and accountability to the people, then if you can't "RECALL" your own should be removed from office. you SHOULD be able to remember your choices and actions in every instance, through notes, or calendars, or secretaries, or emails, or documentation .. accountability has been removed from the powers of authority and has caused them to become criminals with short memory spans hiding behind claims of ignorance or lack of awareness.

    Why is Dershowitz defending Chump so much? What dirt is out there on Dershowitz that Chump knows about. Hmmm, I wonder. People need to look into their mutual friends, friends that were convicted of crimes.

      Alan Dershowitz wrote a book called 'The Case for Israel' and defends any evil action Israel does, he's cozying up to the Trump admin for his cause. Did you notice the U.S will recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital even though that's the last things that will bring peace to the Middle East.

      Trump hides in the open, for now. Historically, people in 50+ years will wonder how dumb folks in 2017 were to just let a person like Trump run roughshod over the constitution. The documentary about this era will be a very dense miniseries.

    So what's the score with Dersh? I know he is a lawyer of repute and a very intelligent man, so why is he a shill for Trump?

    • RedroomStudios
      RedroomStudios Year ago

      Dershowitz represents the most cynical aspect of criminal defense lawyers... he doesnt care if the client is guilty or not... he will pursue any line of defense in order to get that client off. he doesnt care about justice, he only cares about winning and as such is a perfect defender for Trump. the crap reasoning he has been pushing on FOX and elsewhere is utterly illogical and corrupt. anyone who buys that kind of thinking is a traitor against democracy and justice.
