Dershowitz Says Special
Counsel Will Help Trump:
´He´s Going to Find No Crime´

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/19/2017 10:34:16 PM

Although many on the left have expressed their approval of Robert Mueller being appointed as special counsel to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Alan Dershowitz thinks Mueller could actually vindicate President Donald Trump, rather than bring about his downfall. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Dershowitz, a legal scholar and Harvard University Law School professor, said he doesn´t see a crime that necessitated the appointment of a special counsel. He explained that it would not be criminal, even if it happened, for the Trump campaign to have collaborated with the Russians in an effort to get their candidate

Comments:
This was an excellent segment that every Republican in congress should see. I have never been a particular fan of Dershowitz going back to the days of OJ Simpson. That said, that short segment he gave concise information as to why a special counsel should never have been appointed and summarized the outrageousness of it all. I just can´t believe that Jeff Sessions would allow such a thing to happen because a crime had not taken place. Mark Levin has said the same thing.

So the Democrats have talked the stupid Republicans into appointing a special prosecutor to prosecute them for no crime? Only the Republicans would agree to this absurdity.

Agreed.

There is nothing there against Trump. Perhaps some minor stuff with Flynn and Manafort, perhaps.

Perhaps Trump is using the Dhim´s call for a special counsel to give them what they asked for; an investigation into Russian involvement during the election. I propose Trump will use this to trap Clinton, and hopefully Ozero.

Patience Trumpers, asymmetrical political warfare is "complicated business, folks, complicated business."

Agree with #4. PDT and Sessions are playing rope-a-dope with the left. Wait for it - once the investigation starts getting close to Illary and Smidgen, the demonrats will start screeching that it´s all too expensive and needs to be ended.

I have never liked Dershowitz since I read his early book where he details, inter alia, his defense of Ron Jeremy, the porn actor.

Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith on Friday assailed the ´mind-boggling deception´ by the Trump administration in explaining its role in the ongoing Russia investigation. In a segment with his network colleague Chris Wallace, Smith was offering commentary about the latest revelations in the unfolding scandal. He did not hold back when he spoke about the revelations that President Donald Trump´s son, Donald Trump Jr, failed to disclose the fact that there were more participants in his June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin admitted Friday he attended a June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at the Trump Tower in Manhattan. The liberal media jumped on the story noting that Akhmetshin a Russian operative and was helping Trump get elected. But Rinat Akhmetshin was working with Fusion GPS, an organization linked to the Democrat party, and has worked the shadowy corners of the Washington lobbying scene for nearly 20 years. (Snip) Accusations have arisen that the meeting was part of a wider setup to achieve a FISA warrant to wiretap phones of the Trump campaign during 2016. President Trump

Trump, Jr. Meeting With Russian Lawyer
Undermines Media’s Collusion Narrative

The liberal media do not seem to understand that last summer´s meeting between Trump, Jr. and a Russian lawyer — far from being a “smoking gun” — actually demolishes their Trump/Russia collusion narrative. In the ongoing drama of allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, the “smoking gun” being touted by the liberal mainstream media this week is Donald Trump, Jr.’s meeting with a Russian government lawyer last summer. E-mails released by Trump, Jr. show that he agreed to the meeting to obtain “some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia.” The

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 448 pages of documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing new incidents of Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, providing special State Department treatment to major donors to the Clinton Foundation and political campaigns. The heavily redacted documents from Abedin’s non-government account include an email from Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go-between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris. The documents

A federal appeals court ruled Friday that a North Carolina county’s practice of opening commissioners’ meetings with Christian prayers – and inviting the audience to join in – is unconstitutional. The 45-page opinion by the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va. sets up a possible showdown on the issue at the U.S. Supreme Court in coming months. The appeals court ruled 10-5 in favor of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of non-Christian residents who claimed they felt excluded by the prayer. “This ruling is a great victory for the rights of

Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner´s lawyer is stepping back from representing him as the probe into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia evolves, according to a new report. (Snip) In a statement to the National Law Journal, Gorelick said that her firm advised Kushner to determine whether she should continue representing Kushner after her former law partner, Bob Mueller, left her firm to form the Justice Department´s special counsel office. “As you may recall, and as we have stated, once Bob Mueller and three of our partners left the firm to form the Special Counsel’s Office, we advised

The war on cash is escalating. A big driver isn’t central banks who want to be able to inflict negative interest rates on savers, or Treasuries who see cash transactions as hiding revenues from their tax collectors, but the payment networks that want to kill cash (and checks!) as competitors to their oh so terrific (and fee-gouging) credit and debit cards. However, one bit of good news is there doesn’t appear to be much enthusiasm on the buyer, as in merchant, end.

The Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance Trust Funds will be depleted in the next 17 years, according to the Social Security Administration´s trustees report. By 2034 the combined asset reserves of both funds are expected to be insolvent. Alone, the Disability Insurance Trust Fund will be insolvent by 2028. According to the report, the trust funds have a total asset reserves of $2.85 trillion. Even though the trust fund reserves are growing, the cost of the program will outweigh the revenue by 2022.

The U.S. government has denied financial support to the family of a federal agent who was severely wounded in a 2011 ambush by a Mexican drug cartel but at the same time has subsidized housing expenses for the family of a hit-squad member who assisted in the shootout that left another officer dead. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent who survived the attack, Victor Avila, said the Department of Homeland Security refused to fund hotel, travel, and per diem expenses for his wife and two children during the two-week trial of two men accused in his attempted murder, which

The House on Friday rejected a controversial proposal that would have required the Secretary of Defense to conduct a study of “Islamic religious doctrines, concepts or schools of thought” that could be used to radicalize or recruit Islamic terrorists. The amendment offered by Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., was defeated by a vote of 208-217. There were 27 Republicans who crossed the aisle to vote against the measure. The amendment would have required Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to “conduct two concurrent strategic assessments of the use of violent or unorthodox Islamic religious doctrine to support extremist or terrorist messaging and justification" within a

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) on Friday came out against the revised Senate ObamaCare replacement bill, urging Republicans to instead work with Democrats on a solution. Kasich has been a strong defender of ObamaCare’s expansion of Medicaid in Ohio and pointed to the Medicaid cuts in the bill, which remain essentially unchanged from the initial version. “The Senate plan is still unacceptable,” Kasich said in a statement. “Its cuts to Medicaid are too deep and at the same time it fails to give states the ability to innovate in order to cope with those reductions.” Kasich’s stance also puts pressure on his

President Trump is seeking to radically remodel the State Department in an unprecedented way, according to former officials from administrations of both political parties. The administration’s efforts, which include a proposed budget cut of nearly 30 percent, a hiring freeze and a potential reshuffling of offices within the State Department, have left scores of positions unfilled, demoralizing the staff that remain. Past GOP presidents have also sought to cut the State Department down to size, and even current employees have acknowledged bureaucratic problems at Foggy Bottom. But some former officials describe Trump´s efforts as something unseen before — a war

The Senate will defer consideration of the GOP healthcare plan that would partially repeal and replace Obamacare until Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., returns to work following a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement late Saturday. After wishing him a "speedy recovery," McConnell, R-Ky., added: "While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act." About two hours earlier, McCain´s office revealed that he would be spending a week in his home state

(Snip) Harris, a 52-year-old former prosecutor and San Francisco district attorney who went on to become California’s attorney general, was a star of the Senate intelligence committee hearing into President Trump’s ties to Russia, grilling US Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Harris has also opposed 18 of Trump’s 22 administration nominees.

Richard Fernandez is one of the most brilliant authors on the Internet. This week he wrote: Conventional wisdom posits the chief challenges facing the post-Cold War World are Global Warming and the decline of international institutions. But maybe that assurance is a species of Fake News. Suppose the most pressing problems in the next decade is finding new energy supplies to 1) keep the price of oil low enough to contain Russia (and Islamism); and 2) adapting to a disruptive information revolution no one can seem to control.

The White House would be required to hold at least a couple on-camera press briefings each week if a Democratic lawmaker musters support for a House bill being offered. Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut introduced the Free Press Act on Thursday, a legislative proposal that aims to increase transparency within the Trump administration by mandating two on-camera press briefings per week. “The White House has begun to dramatically, and in an historically unprecedented way, reduce the media and therefore the American people’s access to the thinking of the president,” Mr. Himes said in a statement. “And that’s not healthy.”

It wouldn’t have taken much for Hillary Clinton to prevail on Election Night. Donald Trump won the presidency with razor-thin margins of less than 1 percent in three states that had gone Democratic in the previous five elections — Michigan by 10,000 votes, Wisconsin by 22,000 and Pennsylvania by 34,000. Yes, if only she hadn’t run what was likely the worst presidential campaign in our lifetimes, Hillary Clinton could have stitched together around 80,000 votes and could have been sitting in the Oval Office right now. The interesting question is: How would America in July 2017 be different under a President Clinton rather

The Catholic Church is a boat “on the verge of capsizing,” said Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in a personal message for the funeral Mass of his close friend, Cardinal Joachim Meisner on Saturday. Given his inability to travel, the usually silent retired Pope delivered the message in writing, and had it read aloud in the Cologne Cathedral by his personal secretary, Archbishop Georg Gänswein, who also serves as Prefect of the Papal Household for Pope Francis. In the text, Benedict said that Cardinal Meisner “found it difficult to leave his post, especially at a time in which the Church stands in particularly
