As the Media Industrial Complex and leftists celebrate the news that former FBI director James Comey will be testifying in front of congress next week, legal legend and former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz believes this is actually a good thing for the Trump administration.
Appearing on MSNBC, Dershowitz laid out why lawyers for the President would find it advantageous to hear Comey’s open testimony prior to a trial (keep in mind there has yet to be any evidence of a crime).
The Daily Caller reported:
Dershowitz said on MSNBC’s “On The Record” that, for Trump, being able to hear the claims made against him will help him and his legal team develop a strategy.
This could hurt Trump politically but it will help him legally,” he told host Greta Van Susteren. “Why will it help him legally? Every defense lawyer wants to see a preview of the testimony against them.”
“That’s why we hate grand jury hearings and we love inquiries, preliminary hearings, where we can hear in open what’s coming up against our client.”
Dershowitz also slammed people who want to “stretch obstruction of justice” arguing that it goes too far to inquire into what Trump was thinking when he chose to fire Comey.
From a great legal mind to God’s ears, it looks like the administration now has set themselves in a great position to be able to react to Comey’s in coming testimony.
