Dershowitz

When Fox News demonstrates more journalistic scruples than the BBC, you know we’re in trouble.  Famed constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz, who thinks the Constitution gives Donald Trump the power to do anything he wants so long as he’s earnestly attempting to steal elections, appeared on BBC News Wednesday after Ghislaine Maxwell was...

Because “something bad happened”, the Wall Street Journal has the criminal solicitation tapes: The anti-Slenderman wants you to overturn an election because who would believe that he’d suborn racketeering, or election fraud, or bribery. Cocaine Bear is getting worried the wolf is at the door with that indictment, because Merrick Garland is...

Recovering memory and historical revisionism in sex work might be the sad product of many repressive regimes. What becomes worse is the complicity of academic institutions in white-washing crimes against humanity.  Harvard is no stranger to items like Alan (buddy of Jeff Epstein) Dershowitz’s attempt to move the statutory rape...

Slowly we turn…. more Trump revelations ahead as his recorded talks with Putin are now available to Biden and Ukraine releases tapes of Giuliani hectoring them to investigate Biden. Then again there’s the distant hope that a vain Trump will be frustrated enough to testify before the Senate. Maybe a cat lawyer...

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) was one of only five Republican senators to vote to table Rand Paul’s motion to dismiss the impeachment trial of Trump as unconstitutional.

Even in exile* Donald Trump can’t stop fucking up and embarrassing the shit out of us. Whoever’s on deck this week to defend Trump in his impeachment trial (it’s either Barry Zuckerkorn or Lionel Hutz; I forget which) is so sharp, they can’t quite spell the name of the country Trump was...

It’s pretty much a given now that sometime between Monday and Wednesday, the House will pass and send to the Senate an article of impeachment against the Malignant Mangoturd.

There are 11 Democrats still standing in the breach between democracy and autocracy in America.

Having now become a historical fountain of misconstrued Constitutional information, Alan Dershowitz surely borrowed a pair of tap shoes from the late dancer Gregory Hines.  In addressing the assembled Senate members for the removal of the President, following his Impeachment, Dershowitz is now seeking to moonwalk his assertion that if...

After a 16 hour question and answer period, it took until the second to last question for the issue to be fully realized and the Republicans’ bad faith to be nakedly displayed in its full contempt.  What we heard was that President Trump could not be impeached and removed for attempting to interfere...

Nixonian reasons return, amplified by an argument massaged by Alan Dershowitz to legitimate efforts like the Watergate break-in. x “They compounded the dangerous argument they made that no quid pro quo is too much, and they compounded it by saying if what you want is targeting your rival, it's even...

Pat Cipollone, the counsel for the President, cleverly introduced distracting video mocking two Congressional House Managers: Rep. Zoe Lofgren and Rep. Jerrold Nadler.

Not to be confused with Leeroy Jenkins, and with much arm-waving Alan Dershowitz affirmed that the House has charged IMPOTUS* with impeachable offenses, despite declarations to the contrary. He also tried to apply a critique that trashes the recently revealed Bolton book in his speech to the Senate. x Dershowitz asserts...

Apparently Alan Dershowitz got insulted when he claimed he had a perfect sex life, and forensic psychiatrist Bandy X. Lee thought it verged on delusion like his buddy, IMPOTUS*.

Trump is casting characters for the Senate trial as a spectacle, probably because Rudy’s going to get indicted. Dershowitz’s latest book is literally called The Case Against Impeaching Trump.
