Alan Dershowitz: The Anti-Trump Obsession Is Undermining America’s Justice System, Civil Liberties, and Rule of Law

“Independent voters will look at some of these charges and say, gee, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. But of course, where there’s smoke, sometimes there’s arson,” says Alan Dershowitz, professor emeritus of law at Harvard Law School.

“I think a lot of these fires have been set politically in order to get Trump,” Dershowitz says. He’s the author of the new book, “Get Trump: The Threat to Civil Liberties, Due Process, and Our Constitutional Rule of Law.”

We discuss the many cases being litigated against former President Donald Trump, what his vulnerabilities actually are, and the broader assault on civil liberties.

“Justice Thurgood Marshall said the First Amendment has two sides: one, the right to speak, and two, the right to listen and the right to hear. And the right to hear is just as important as the right to speak. And so people who have been denied the right to hear have the power to bring lawsuits,” Dershowitz says.
