  1. Alan Dershowitz is saying that there was nothing wrong with Nixon ordering the break-in of the DNC because he did it because he wanted to be reelected. 😲

      kiloscott  …………..  Slight shorthand . ‘Opposition Research’, but of the dirty tricks, illegal, variety; and thus done in ‘black’ or secrecy .

    • Johny Almanac No. He is saying anything the president does is legal if he or she believes it will help them get re-elected and that their re-election is in the national interest of the American people.

      New Wave  ………………… Patent nonsense . Variation of the ‘Superior Orders’ / Nuremberg defense .  ‘Divine Right of Kings’ garbage .

    Fatal flaw: DJT being re-elected is definitely NOT in the public interest. Getting him impeached & removed from the WH is in the public interest.

    We are embarrassing ourselves on the world stage…REALLY THINK ABOUT THAT….only trump could BK our democracy.

    • Only He alone can BK our democracy

    • Canadian here. He’s embarrassing himself. His blindfolded sycophants are embarrassing themselves. I think most people see that it’s a minority who support the new tRump party. You’ll recover. Removing him will help start the healing sooner.

  4. The USA has had a very fragile and tenuous hold on a true democracy for some time… It is about to lose it if the Republicans vote the way everyone expects them to vote.

    • Dershowitz said that Trump’s alleged disclosure of classified information to Russia is “the most serious charge ever made against a sitting president

    His defense reminded me of mental illness.

  6. Alan Dirtshitwiz is no longer Harvard Law Professor, He is GOP’s propaganda minister. He is also Pompeo’s full-time Coach of female reporter’s intimidation.

    Nobody wants to hear the latest Dershowitz theories. Everybody wants to hear the truth!

      E N ;

      YOU’RE CERTAINLY NOT GOING TO HEAR “THAT” (THE TRUTH),VIA, MSNBC !

      THAT, IS A LAUGHABLE REALITY 😂.

      OF COURSE, IF “THEY”, ARE YOUR STEADY DIET OF THE “TRUTH”,
      YOU’LL, SADLY NEVER KNOW IT.

      GOOD LUCK, CONTINUING TO HEAR, ZERO REALITY –
      BUT “PLEASE” FORGO VOTING 🙏 !

      AS A MATTER OF FACT – CONSIDER EMIGRATING TO A COUNTRY WHERE, “PROPAGANDA” – SUCH AS WHAT, MSNBC ESPOUSES,
      WILL BE THE “ONLY THING” YOU’LL HEAR 😁.

      WHEN YOU GET THERE, I’M SURE YOU’LL FEEL MUCH MORE ATTUNED TO THAT SORT OF GOVERNMENT 😉.

      GOOD LUCK 😆.

      TRUMP 🇺🇸 2020

    • Just play the Dershowitz interviews from the 90’s when he took the exact opposite stance and claimed all of Trump’s actions would be impeachable. It’s ironic that all of these Republicans took the exact opposite stance on Impeachment in the 90’s. You can play video clips of graham and others and watch them literally flip flop and take the opposite stance to their beliefs in an attempt to defend Trump.

    • @Mike P Except Trump’s own GAO confirmed Trump broke Federal laws by withholding the aide to Ukraine. Trump’s article of Impeachment, ‘Abuse of Power’, also contains examples of Bribery and Extortion.

      The sad truth is, Trump tried to cheat in the 2020 Presidential election, because it worked for him in 2016. Trump got caught red handed and has been in full spin mode, trying to explain his illegal actions.

      As you point out though, there doesn’t have to be a crime to get impeached, but sadly, there is no shortage of evidence showing Trump’s crimes.

    • @Janelee Keller Right, as you point out, Fox News is state run propaganda. You have to be one stupid POS to still be falling for Trump’s easy to see through lies at this point in History.

      @Janelee Keller stop projecting your lack of education please…documents and witnesses blocked from congress…right sit down stfu I think your toy needs new batteries!!!

  8. We thought that the American drama could not get any crazier

    • November 4 2020 as soon as the results are know there will be riots like the world has never seen before in the USA and it doesn’t matter much what side is going to win .

      You can continue this charade. We the people have heard and seen enough. donald trump is guilty and needs to be removed. So. If the Senate does not do its job, we the people will. trump can not bully all of us. You and treasonous family and spineless flunkies will be voted out and with the blessing of God, the senators complicit in this will be jailed and trump will be placed in jail for the all the crimes that surfaced during the time he hid behind being a president. trump should be jailed with those that are sitting un jail because they got caught doing trump’s illegal deeds. So, enjoy your time, because we are voting you out.

    The Professor is suffering from dementia.

  10. Couldn’t it happen that the supreme jugde takes statement after all of these 36hours and says: dear senators- I see you all in contempt of the American people and send you in jail for breaking your oath of impartial judgment.
    Clap end of story?

    Dershowitz has two half brains: ‘left’ and ‘right’.
    In the left side, there’s nothing right.
    In the right side, there’s nothing left.

  12. If the president starts rounding up opponents and sending them to prison camps in order to win his reelection, he has the right to do so according to Dershowitz.

    well said there: our allies are gravitating towards “reliable country that is not tearing itself apart and not embarrassing itself on the word stage”

  15. Dershbag’s argument would have reminded me of Nixon if the Senate were holding Trump accountable for ANYTHING.

    • @kiloscott well? Did you look it up? Funny how all these molesters are major players today.
      After trump became president he gave the wealthys the biggest tax cut EVER.

    • @kiloscott the big wigs, have a new Epstein. Dersgawitz parts ways. The Prince make a fool of himself on global television. The state attorney later becomes part of trump’s cabinet.
      The DC PEDO MAFIA is a group of Republicans and Democrats. They need each other to survive.

    45’s actions were not in the nation’s interest. It was in his own interest.

  17. Another old fool in Washington, who’d a figured?
    Sad!

  18. So this is the end result of “the great experiment”. So long America. You had a good run. Maybe being oppressed, lied to, and told how to think will be fun 🤞🏻

  19. Trump Who? Never seen or heard of the man.

  20. Joseph de Maistre’s “Every country has the government that they deserve and in a democracy they have the leaders that they deserve “
