'Radical': See Alan Dershowitz Respond To Criticism From White House Lawyers | MSNBC

70 comments

    1. He was using the Republican/Soviet propaganda technique of projection; you’d have to be a zealot to defend Trump with Dershowitz’s soup sandwich defense

    1. Due process it’s called. And because of that you can’t bring in more witnesses after you’ve closed your investigation . Blame Nancy for doing that . Sorry

    2. Re Lief sorry the are. That constitution states every man has the right of due process of law. And the Dems are trying hard to get around that

    3. Julio Lopez Liberalism is causing insanity. Democrats Impeach Trump for Biden’s corruption. MSNBC is a joke

    4. Julio Lopez The House has the trial and the Senate has the vote. The Senate is NOT responsible for a trial. The House had their trial, in which they did not allow Republican witnesses. That was the unfair trial!

    1. terry walker From Alan? You tell me if you believe some who denies what he said days ago as if there were no records of it ?

    2. I can only think that by giving him airtime MSNBC have a comeback to claims they are not impartial, unlike FOX who would never give airtime and a chance to actually speak, to any guest that doesn’t support the FOX Trumpist position.

  1. Douchewitz means any President in future can invite foreign countries to interfere in US Elections and there will be no consequences.

    1. @Dizzy Duke Dems brainwashed ya. Dems knew using Russia would scare people.Check it out. Trumps has hurt Russia more then all other Presidents combined.Dem have more involvement with Russia then Reps.Obama and Clinton sold them nuclear bomb material.Check for yourself.Not Dem controlled media

  2. Republican campaign finance reports, which are, available to the public, show connections between a group of wealthy donors with ties to Russia and their political contributions to Trump and a number of top Republican leaders. And thanks to changes in campaign finance laws, the political contributions are legal. Bottom line,  our campaign finance laws are now a threat to our country.

    Len Blavatnik, is a dual U.S.-U.K. citizen and one of the largest donors to GOP political action committees in the 2015-16 election cycle. Blavatnik’s family emigrated to the U.S. in the late ’70s from the the Soviet Union and he returned to Russia when the Soviet Union began to collapse in the late ’80s.

    In 2015-16, Blavatnik’s political contributions soared as he pumped $6.35 million into GOP political action committees, with millions of dollars going to top Republican leaders including Moscow Mitch, Rubio and Lindsey “Two-faced” Graham.

    Oleg Deripaska is said to be one of Putin’s favorite oligarchs, and he is founder and majority shareholder of Russia’s Rusal, the second-largest aluminum company in the world. Blavatnik holds a stake in Rusal with a business partner.

    Nearly 4% of Deripaska’s stake in Rusal is owned by Putin’s state-controlled bank, VTB, which is currently under U.S. sanctions. VTB was exposed in the Panama Papers in 2016 for facilitating the flow of billions of dollars to offshore companies linked to Putin.

    We already know that Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, began collecting $10 million a year in 2006 from Deripaska to advance Putin’s interests with Western governments. Deripaska’s name turned up again in an email handed over to Mueller’s team by Manafort’s attorneys. In the email dated July 7, 2016, just two weeks before Trump accepted the Republican nomination, Manafort asked an overseas intermediary to pass a message on to Deripaska: “If he Deripaska needs private briefings, tell him we can accommodate.”

    Viktor Vekselberg is one of the 10 richest men in Russia. He and long-time business partner Blavatnik hold a 20.5 percent stake in Rusal. Vekselberg has connections to at least two Americans who made significant GOP campaign contributions during the last cycle. 

    Andrew Intrater, is Vekselberg’s cousin. He is also chief executive of Columbus Nova, Renova’s U.S. investment arm located in NY.  in January 2017 he contributed $250,000 to Trump’s Inaugural Committee. His six-figure gift bought him special access to a dinner billed as “an intimate policy discussion with select cabinet appointees,” 

    Simon Kukes is an oil magnate who has something in common with Intrater. From 1998 to 2003, he worked for Vekselberg and Blavatnik as chief executive of TNK. In 2016, Kukes contributed a total of $283,000, much of it to the Trump Victory Fund. 

    In total, Blavatnik, Intrater, and Kukes made $10.4 million in political contributions from the start of the 2015-16 election cycle through September 2017, and 99 percent of their contributions went to Republicans. The common denominator that connects the men is their association with Vekselberg.

    Moscow Mitch knew from receiving intelligence briefings in 2016 that our electoral process was under attack by the Russians. Two weeks after the Dept of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a joint statement in October 2016 that the Russian government had directed the effort to interfere in our electoral process, Moscow Mitch’s PAC accepted a $1 million donation from Blavatnik’s AI-Altep Holdings. The PAC took another $1 million from Blavatnik’s AI-Altep Holdings on March 30, 2017, just 10 days after Comey publicly testified before the House Intelligence Committee about Russia’s interference in the election.

    It’s safe to say that Trump and the GOP have been bought and paid for with Russian money.
    It’s why repubicans are fighting so hard to defend him instead of the Constitution. It’s also why Republicans have been repeating the exact same lies and propaganda of the Russian government and Russian security services like the GRU.

    1. Thank you. Please send this to Ari and Bloomberg who has the money to put this out. You also might to send this to Graham’s office.

    1. It’s no wonder your home country is a corrupt lawless hellhole. In white countries every defendant has a right to an attorney and it leaves no stain on the attorney, he’s doing his job.

  3. When the Democrats win in November it will be like a breath of fresh air for the American people,
    after choking on the festering, corrupted air of the swamp under Donald Trump for 4 years.

    1. You think the democrats are going to win? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

    2. BooRock OMamba haha. Liberalism is causing insanity. Democrats Impeach Trump for Biden’s corruption. MSNBC is a joke

    1. @terry walker – even Donny can’t stop what’s coming in November. No witnesses, no documents, no vote for Donny, especially when the rest of the evidence comes out. No way to win without independents. #VoteBlue!!

    1. @harrington41 – I watched it. Obviously you view the proceedings different than me. If you don’t want to engage with my points which I pointed out, yes obviously we have nothing further to discuss. You can like someone who agrees with you, but boy once someone doesn’t like Dershowitz, who is a lifelong self professed Dem, you resort to name calling. Pretty standard for lib Dems like you.

    2. harrington41 you’re a moron do you have any idea how dumb you democrats look right now???? Russia collusion, Kavanugh, mueller report, and now impeachment you’re a loser

    3. harrington41 Liberalism is causing insanity. Democrats Impeach Trump for Biden’s corruption. MSNBC is a joke

  4. Yeah, yeah. We get it. “It’s one set of rules for our guy, another set of rules for everyone else.”
