Professor Alan Dershowitz recently shared his thoughts on Stormy Daniels. He doesn’t think the story will stand the test of time. He’s probably right, too. The only people who care are the media types who want to “get” Trump.
Dershowitz: Daniels Story will Be ‘Very Small Footnote to History’ – Giuliani Interview Shows ‘Virtue of Silence’
On Thursday’s “Laura Ingraham Show,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz stated that Rudy Giuliani’s statement about Stormy Daniels shows why silence is a virtue, but that he believes there is “some overall consistency” to the Trump camp’s story and “the whole Stormy Daniels thing is going to end up being a very small footnote to history.”
Dershowitz said of Giuliani’s statement, “I think it really shows the virtue of silence.” He added that statements like Giuliani’s invite people to parse statements to find contradictions.
He added, “I actually see some overall consistency here. The way I understand what Rudy said, was, look, the president gave this guy a $35,000-a-month retainer. He didn’t earn it. His job was to solve these issues. He had discretion how to do it. He solved the issue by making this payment. The money came out of the retainer that he was paid, the unearned parts of the retainer that he was paid. The president wasn’t told of specific instances of what Cohen had done until he learned about it later. That all is consistent, but it just doesn’t sound consistent when it comes from different sources, each of whom give a little bit of the story.”
The folks at CNN and MSNBC will be very depressed to hear this.
