Alan Dershowitz is now seen as a defender of Trump so naturally, liberal media outlets like CNN are attacking him. Anyone who defends Trump is marked for destruction by the media, that’s the environment in which we all now live.
Take a look at the story below from News Busters:
Cuomo Asks Dershowitz: ‘Do You Endorse That Kind of Attack On The Institutions of Our Democracy?’
While interviewing Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo repeatedly tried to bait the lawyer into criticizing President Trump. Dershowitz, a civil libertarian who often defends the President from the far left’s attacks, also got into a back and forth with CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, a former student of his.
However, Dershowitz did share his legal advice with the viewers of New Day. While he pointed out that Presidents Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt “have all directed which investigations should be conducted and which not,” he also said that “there’s a long tradition of Presidents not doing that and I think it would be a serious mistake that would cost him support among many of his Republican…”
Cuomo then interrupted, “Have you ever seen this President respect any tradition of that nature since he’s been President?” Rather than take Cuomo’s invitation to bash Trump, Dershowitz responded: “Well, I think that he should respect this tradition. I think it would be a mistake to do any firing.”
Eventually, Dershowitz called out Cuomo, the media, and the left for their hypocrisy: “If Hillary Clinton had been elected President and they were investigating her e-mails…and they went after her lawyers’ files, you would be up in arms, the ACLU would be up in arms.”
Here’s the video:
Dershowitz is correct in his point about Hillary. The double standard is so obvious.
