The constitutional law scholar and former Harvard Law School professor, Alan Dershowitz, says comments from President Trump’s phone conversation that caused an uproar in the media over the weekend were taken out of context. There is no crime apparent on the recording, says Dershowitz, who has been teaching criminal law for over 50 years.

The president spoke on Jan. 2 to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and other Georgia officials in an hour-long call. Raffensperger secretly recorded the call and leaked it to the media, and select parts were then released to the public.

“Well, every major media is taking it out of context,” Dershowitz said during an interview Monday with Just the News show “The Watercooler with David Brody,” in which he spoke of reports that the president attempted to overturn the election by demanding Georgia officials manufacture votes.

“He’s not saying I want you to create the vote,” said Dershowitz. “He’s not saying I want you to manufacture or concoct the votes. He’s saying, and he’s been saying this for months, on Twitter and his statements and his campaign’s, he thinks that people voted for him and those votes weren’t counted. He’s entitled as a citizen, as a candidate, to say, ‘I want you to find those votes, I want you to find the votes that will pass for me and what weren’t counted, I want you to find votes that were cast against me that shouldn’t have been counted—by people who are dead people, who are out of state.”

“I’ve been teaching criminal law for over 50 years,” he added. “I went through every word of that transcript; there is no crime there, period.”

The president has filed two lawsuits against Raffensperger for recording and publishing the confidential conversation.

Georgia Republican President David Shafer announced the lawsuits against Secretary of State Raffensperger on Twitter.
