Congress is acting as though it is above the law, and allowing Congress to “make up crimes’ is a danger to all Americans, says a former Harvard Law School professor.
Speaking on John Catsimatidis’s radio show on Sunday, Nov. 10, liberal Democrat Alan Dershowitz compared House Democrats to the Russian secret police under the dictatorship of murderous Josef Stalin, in their efforts to impeach President Trump, reports The Blaze.
The Democrats efforts to make up crimes in order to impeach the president should ring warning bells to all Americans, “The latest twist was people on television, particularly CNN and MSNBC, are saying that if the president or somebody else was to name the whistleblower in the Ukrainian situation, that person would be guilty of a crime. I said in the afternoon yesterday—searching the federal criminal statutes from beginning to end—I couldn’t find the crime. It reminds me of Lavrentiy Beria, head of the KGB, said to Stalin,” he said, ‘Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.’ Which he really meant, ‘I’ll make up the crime.'”
“First they made up collusion. ‘Ahh! Collusion. It’s a crime!’ I searched the statute books. There’s no crime of collusion except when businessmen get together to collude against the anti-trust laws, but no crime of collusion with a foreign country.”
Dershowitz continued, “Then after that, they said ‘obstruction of Congress.’ No, no, no, no, no. Obstruction of justice is a crime; obstruction of Congress is part of our system of checks and balances. If you get a subpoena from Congress, and you’re the president or in the executive department, and you think you have an executive privilege, you have an obligation not to respond. That’s not ‘obstruction of Congress,’ that’s checks and balances under our Constitution.”
“The ACLU should be up in arms, but they’re silent,” he concluded.
Not surprisingly, MSM has turned their backs on Alan Dershowitz since he became vocal in criticizing the Democrats impeachment efforts. He has been a frequent guest on Fox News and is recognized as one of the finest criminal lawyers in the country, and becoming a target is not new to him. He was falsely accused of being involved in Epstein’s alleged child sex-trafficking operation.
“I could show you the evidence against me in one second. It doesn’t exist. There’s nothing because my two accusers won’t even speak on the record or off the record. They only hide behind litigation privileges. And I have this mass of evidence, tape-recordings, emails,” Dershowitz said.
He believes he became a target because of his support for President Trump’s legal rights.
