Watch: New Trump Lawyer Dershowitz Reveals Plan For Trump Trial Defense On Live TV | MSNBC 1


On the day he was named as a new member of Pres. Trump’s impeachment defense team, lawyer Alan Dershowitz joined MSNBC’s Ari Melber for a wide ranging interview about the looming Senate trial. Dershowitz broke news by revealing he plans to argue that “abuse of power” is not an impeachable act – going on offense against House Democrats who picked that offense over Constitutional terms like “bribery” – and arguing he is prepared to wage an assertive historical and Constitutional battle against those with other views at Trump’s Senate trial. Pressed by Melber about his past remarks and current role, Dershowitz acknowledged he is now a lawyer representing the President. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 01/17/20.

    I’ll translate: we don’t have an argument, we don’t have a defense.

  5. I hope Dershowitz reads the actual Article dealing with abuse of power thoroughly because the House did in fact list individually all of the crimes that violated laws which are pertinent to abuse of power for which Trump is accused.

    Great, the guy who got O.J. Simpson off is now defending Trump. “If the comb-over fits, you must acquits.”

    If he’s right, Americans are screwed.

  15. “Abuse of power is not an impeachable offense.” Really Alan? I thought you were a Constitutional scholar. Did you get your degree from tRump University?
    So he’s saying, it’s all on how you define “working for the tRump”. I’m paid by him but I’m not hired to defend him, I was hired to….defend the Constitution? huh?

    Wrong. He’s wearing the “team Trump banner” to disguise his honest role as an expert witness.

  17. Dershowitz presents he’s defending the constitution when in reality but won’t admit it, he’s one of Trump’s lawyers.

  18. Allan can’t keep his facts straight… everyone is wrong BUT him…

  19. Alan Dershowitz’s latest book is titled “The Case Against Removing Trump.”
    His next book will be titled “The Case For legalizing Child Trafficking.” In memory of his client and dear friend, Epstein.
