Derschowitz: If Trump Was Impeached For Bribery, Extortion, Issue Would Be ‘Very Different’ | MSNBC 1


Trump team lawyer Alan Derschowitz discusses Sen. Lamar Alexander's statement about why he will not be supporting witnesses, but saying he believed that Democrats did prove Trump's 'quid pro quo' with MSNBC chief legal analyst Ari Melber. He says that what the House impeached the president for were not impeachable, and that 'the issue would be very, very different' if Trump was impeached for bribery or extortion, but they "didn't have the votes" to do so. Aired on 1/31/2020.

    Lest we forget: Derschowitz has a lot to lose. Didn’t he attend the parties offered by the dead pedophile? Isn’t it self interest that he now twist the law to protect dt?

    • @Crystal Giddens anyone is better then Devos.

    • @Mike Fernandez #DonTheCon Was Aslo Present During Many Of His Escapades, Regardless Of Whether Or Not His Name Was On The Manifest Of Those Flights To Epstein’s Perverted Getaway.

  4. How could Harvard even allow such an incompetent professor teach others his insanity?

  5. What a waste of time.It’s like interviewing Goebbels.

    • @David Hale If you expect somebody to prove to you that your president is a zero morals ,con artist,wanna be dictator in process of altering democracy in this country,you are no wise than a second grader,because a third grader would have no problem seeing all these.

    • Mag and you throwing insults in with your arguments makes you look worse. A child trying to make themselves look intelligent without making a intelligent argument. Insults to make you feel superior while making a point does nothing but cheapen and weaken that point.

    • @David Hale In 200 years no senate trial has had zero witnesses or documents…Another win for Trumputin!

    • @David Hale You’re doing exactly what the nazi’s did at Nuremburg…DENY! DENY! DENY!

    • Box Jabber still with your nonsense I see. Well there’s nothing more for me to say to you. Your talking in circles.
      It’s redundant and pathetic. You’ll believe what you want regardless of how many times someone explains it to you.
      Just a puppet repeating the same nonsense over and over.

  6. Derschowitz and this guy is a teacher of law shame on him

  7. Derschowitz and this guy is a teacher of law shame on him

  8. Derschowitz is a twit… he suffers from the same sydrone trump has..

  9. If OJ had used a gun instead of a knife to cut off his wife’s head it would be “very different”.

  10. I’d love to have Mr Derschowitz as a lawyer! You could get away with murder…literally.

    If you don’t respect your town then we’ll burn it down-Tupac

  12. But that’s *exactly* what he’s impeached for, dimwitt.

    That and for having obstructed the House Investigation at every turn of course.

    • ​@Sux_2_B_U – I am sure that you do not know any smart people or any honest people. You also are ignorant and gullible. You believe all of the lies that the republitards tell you and they tell you TONS of lies.

    • You can watch the president admit it on video.

      Douchowitz is as much of a moral coward as his client, and is completely intellectually dishonest as well (and a terrible interviewee, interrupting constantly, picking meaningless fights with the interviewer and other guests, talking over people… he acts more like an ambulance chaser who advertises on daytime TV than a former Harvard law professor). He even just instinctively lies when he doesn’t have any reason to, like the number of senators who came to chat with him after his now infamous defense argument; first it was 15, then a handful, then some, then a few, then a small group, it changes in every interview he gives!

      And an example of his intellectual dishonesty, in using the Lincoln example, there was no guarantee at all at which party the soldiers given voting furloughs would vote for, a pretty basic fact despite what he claimed, and Lincoln took all kinds of drastic measures, such as suspecting habeas corpus indefinitely, because he was more even than a war-time president, he was desperately trying to hold the union together in the face of an armed insurrection that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans! You can’t judge Trump’s self-serving actions against things Lincoln did, the whole idea is just another GOP figleaf, as are his constant assertions that he’s a Democrat, lol. What a putz, oy yoy yoy.

      @lelennyfox34 Now we can get back to the Biden corruption thing. Nice try losers.

  13. This guy should not be teaching Law anywhere!!

  14. 45 must have some real bad dirt on you buddy!

  15. Sad to see Dershowitz reduced to this. My sympathy goes out to his family

  16. I’m gonna remember these mental gymnastics for my next traffic ticket.

    • 💯🤦🏽

    • Idylchatter – That is not a bad idea. I am going to go down to the county office a file as a candidate in the next election!! Then ANYTHING I do will be legal as long as I say that it is in the public interest!!! Traffic tickets are small time!! I can rob banks!! I can steal NEW cars right off the lot!! I can do ANYTHING!!!

      “and if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest that can not be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment”

    • @Tomandtob Exactly. 🤦🏽😂

      Trump wasn’t even accused of speeding. That’s the point!

  20. He’s a professor? Bahhahahaha!
