Dershowitz To TV Pundits: Hope Can’t Substitute For Reality’

DC: Harvard Law professor emeritus and frequent Fox News guest Alan Dershowitz blasted TV pundits who appear “anxious” to find crimes against Trump during a “Hannity” appearance on Monday night.

The panel kicked off the segment by discussing the Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen indictments, which have led many in media to label Donald Trump as an “un-indicted co-conspirator.”

“Professor Dershowitz, you kept saying this isn’t even jaywalking as it relates to the president. Can you explain to America’s dumb pundit lawyer class why you are right and they are so wrong?” Hannity asked.

“First, I completely understand why people are so anxious to try to find crimes against Trump, but you just can’t make it up. You have to look at the rule of law and if you look at the statute, the statute says that a candidate can contribute any amount of money he wants into his own campaign and President Trump has said the money came from him personally,” Dershowitz exclaimed.

“So unless new evidence develops I see no indication of any criminal violation of any of the campaign finance statutes. If there are any, let’s hear, where’s the beef, where’s the statute? Point to me where the violation occurs. I know why people hope there is a violation, but hope can’t substitute for reality,” he finished.  Watch

  1. It’s like a number of years ago when I would go to the gas station. I had a pad of sticky notes and a pen, gasoline was like $4.87/gallon and B-Rock was just elected.

    How much HOPE filled your tank today?

  2. I really enjoy watching Alan Dershowitz when he debates his former students. He is never condescending, but he always seems to win the debates. Having the facts and the law on your side helps a lot. Not that any of his knowledge will prevail outside of a courtroom. The Trump haters are too invested in destroying him to be persuaded by logic or the evidence.

  3. The corruptocracy operates under the Stalinist “you show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” motto.

    If you don’t believe that, the NY attorney’s office has $250k in rent control fines to Kushner. Don’t fix your building and you’re a slumlord, do fix it and people complain about construction noise.
