Alan Dershowitz: Trump ´should not be
subject to criminal prosecution´

Washington Examiner, by Pete Kasperowicz

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/19/2017 8:15:52 AM

Alan Dershowitz, professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, argued Monday that Trump should not face any criminal penalty just because he fired former FBI Director James Comey. "The president of the United States should not be subject to criminal prosecution for merely exercising his constitutional authority," he said on CNN. "In the absence of any statute to the contrary, the president has the authority to fire the director of the FBI, and the president has the power tell the director of the FBI who to investigate, who not to investigate," he added.

Thank you Professor Dershowitz.
Tell that to Robert Mueller who knows this, but doesn´t have the integrity to resign. That´s what a honorable lawyer would do. If Comey was Mueller´s protege, that speaks volumes about Mueller.

It´s not a criminal prosecution, it´s a political prosecution. As such, there is no need for facts, for eye witnesses, sworn testimony or innocent until proven guilty rules. All that is needed in a political prosecution are innuendos, rumors, smears, anonymous leaks and false testimony to convict because the Democrats act as judge and the MSM is the jury. Trump was found guilty last November 9th but this show trial continues because he is still president.

Prof. Dershowitz is consistent and intellectually honest. That is all we ask, whether he is politically on "our side" or not. Not so much for others on the Sunday talks yesterday.

(BTW: I caught clips of ABC This Week late last night. Newt Gingrich thoroughly cleaned Martha Raddatz´s clock! Her interrogation .. er, interview came across more like a segment on Tucker Carlson´s show, with Newt taking Tuckers role, and Raddatz jumping around like one of Tuckers liberal guests. Fun to watch. Of course ABC tried to follow with CA Dem Rep. Adam Schiff, but there was no way he could "save" Raddatz after Newt´s evisceration of her.)

As opposed to the greatest president of all time, Barack Hussein Obama, whose entire eight year reign was unconstitutional. He did what he pleased and continuously lied about it, damaged the country deliberately and was never called out by any of these people. In fact, he was praised to the high heavens for his "scandal-free" performance and his long list of "accomplishments."

The democrats are in the minority and the news media is doing its best to lie, smear and denigrate a real president to try to rescue that pathetic bunch of morons. I think we all need to help President Trump fix the problem, whatever it takes.

The Left believes that Trump is not the legitimate President of the United States.

Therefore, ANYTHING he does as President is "subject to criminal prosectution."

Now. WHY do they think Trump is not legitimate? Because they didn´t vote for him, of course!

Actually, we have absolutely no knowledge that the President is being investigated for obstruction of justice. The only sources are pure Fake News sources, wallowing in hysterical lies on a daily basis.

I am surprised that folks here believe something because NYT and WashComPost says so, based on anonymous sources. They LIE, daily, with malice aforethought.

I think the learned Professor is correct, and I would hope that that fundamental legal truth will shine through this crazy time.

Perhaps I am too optimistic.

Great comments.

SUGGESTION: With the Fourth of July just around the corner, what say we flood our worthy President Trump with letters of thanks and support. As a long time Green Card Holder, I am so proud of this man and thankful we got him into The White House. I believe that reminders to him that we are still here and grateful would bring a smile to his face once in a while. He, more than most Presidents, has a tough job all around.

Dershowitz uses words VERY specifically. Trump is not subject to criminal prosecution for firing Comey. Since the DOJ, I believe, only does criminal investigations, there is NO BASIS for Mueller to make that a part of his investigation and Trump should so order the DOJ and Mueller that any aspect of the investigation that is heading in that direction should be ended IMMEDIATELY. If someone wants to make a case that the president cannot fire the Director of the FBI, let them do so. Comey made the case that Trump has the authority to do so and now Dershowitz is backing him up.

Further, I think Trump should be demanding that the evidence to support the assignment of a special investigator for Russian interference be presented for review. NOW!

Here´s a news flash, public opinion and liberal angst is NOT evidence.

Since there is NO evidence to support the assignment of a special investigator, then one should never have been assigned. Period! End!

Further still, the FBI should be required to make an evidential case to the DOJ for the continuance of the investigations. The WH should be part of that review as well. If no evidence exists, and there is little likelihood that any is forthcoming, THOSE investigations should be shut down. It is insane to let this insanity be continued.

Media Matters Falsely Claims It

CNN fired commentator Jeffrey Lord after his big Twitter battle with Media Matters president Angelo Carusone. Lord had criticized the lefty outlet for being Soros-funded. Carusone repeatedly claimed on Twitter that Media Matters had only received “one donation one time...in 2010” from billionaire George Soros. Turns out, that’s not at all true. Soros’ Foundation to Promote Open Society (OSF) tax forms show five separate donations between 2010 and 2014 totalling $1,575,000. Soros gave the organization money every other year during that time. And, since the organization’s 990 tax forms aren’t yet available for 2016, it’s impossible to tell if that

Marine One, the president’s helicopter, will arrive Sunday at around 6:30 p.m. at JFK Airport from his golf club in Bedminster, NJ, where he has spent most of his 17-day “working vacation.” A motorcade will then take the president the 16 miles to Trump Tower, where he has yet to step foot since taking office, sources said.

In his monologue on "The Five" tonight, Greg Gutfeld said the coverage of the infamous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton shows the media´s bias. He pointed to recently released emails that show exchanges between Justice Department officials and journalists from multiple outlets, including The New York Times and the Washington Post, regarding potential coverage of the June 27, 2016 meeting. The Washington Post’s Matt Zapotosky wrote to a DOJ official that he was hoping to put the story "to rest" by answering a few more questions about how the meeting came about. And

These pictures show the inside of Pyongyang´s 360ft deep metro system - that will double up as a nuclear bunker if war breaks out between North Korea and the US. Images show commuters using the world´s deepest underground train system which includes two lines with a combined length of 18 miles beneath North Korea´s capital. Construction work on the Pyongyang Metro started in 1968 and was inaugurated in 1973 by Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of current dictator Kim Jong-un.

With tensions between the U.S. and North Korea rapidly increasing, nuclear war protesters who gathered to remember the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are calling for the “total abolition of weapons.” The protests were held outside of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, roughly 200 protesters came together outside the Livermore Laboratory “to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the bomb that decimated Nagasaki, just three days after another atomic blast did the same to Hiroshima.” Survivors of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki attended the protest alone with the anti-nuclear weapons activists.

Rich Higgins, until recently director of strategic planning at the NSC, revealed the program in a seven-page memorandum produced in May that warns of a concerted information warfare campaign by the Marxist left, Islamists, and political leaders and government officials opposed to the populist president.

A judge who could "decide Trump´s fate" previously served as senior counsel for Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.). The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that Beryl Howell, who was appointed as a federal judge by President Barack Obama in 2010, signed off Mueller´s request to form a grand jury that will seek to gather documents and question Trump associates. Howell´s role could become "far more active," the Daily Beast reported. The grand jury could potentially put together a report that could start impeachment proceedings that would have to be signed off by Howell before becoming available to Congress or the public.
