Harvard Law Professor Dershowitz Tempers Hysteria on Cohen Plea: ‘Kind of Like Jaywalking’ ~ Jack Davis (westernjournal.com)

Good afternoon fellow Seekers,

Once again the left and the MSM are going out of their ever loving minds about the verdicts and plea bargains rendered yesterday. Just as predicted…no doubt.

Here’s Alan breaking it down. Much ado about nothing…

Here’s more from Jack Davis and Western Journal…

The guilty plea entered Tuesday by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen made the day a bad one for President Donald Trump, but media predictions that Trump has met his legal Waterloo are premature, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday.

Dershowitz appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to assess the fallout from Cohen’s plea.

Cohen pleaded guilty to five tax evasion charges and one count of making a false statement to a lending institution. He also pleaded guilty to causing an unlawful corporate contribution and making an excessive campaign contribution in 2016, the Washington Examiner reported.

Dershowitz said that far from being the end of the story, Cohen’s plea was “the beginning of a story that will unravel over time,” adding that it was “not nearly as deadly, lethal as some have portrayed it as being.”

“Violation of election laws are regarded as kind of jaywalking in the realm of things about elections,” Dershowitz said, according to BizPac Review.

“If somebody else pays the money in order to influence the outcome of the election, it is technically perhaps a violation of the election laws,” he said. “Every administration violates the election laws. Every candidate violates the election laws when they run for president. Usually, they pay a fine or something like that happens.”

Dershowiz noted that Trump’s opponents are making the charges appear to be more significant than they are.

“Here, they’re trying to elevate this into an impeachable offense or a felony against the president,” Dershowitz said. “Look, they may name the president as an unindicted co-conspirator… Naming someone as an unindicted co-conspirator is very unfair because he has no opportunity to defend himself or herself.”

He called the incident legally “complicated” and pooh-poohed media outlets “already playing the funeral music” for Trump’s presidency, Fox News reported.

Dershowitz noted, however, that the development is a challenge for Trump

“That escalates the risks against President Trump,” Dershowitz said, according to the Boston Herald. “It’s the first thing that directly touches the president.”

However, he said, Cohen has already pleased guilty to deception.

“I don’t think Cohen is going to be a particularly credible witness,” Dershowitz said.

“All he has to do then is say, ‘And the president directed me to do it.’ That’s the kind of embellishment that people put on a story when they want to avoid dying in prison. When the prosecutor says to them, ‘You have two choices. You’ll die in prison, or you can give me a story that I can use to go and get the president.’”

Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s attorney, said the charges against Cohen showed no connection to Trump.

“There is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the president in the government’s charges against Mr. Cohen,” Giuliani said. “It is clear that, as the prosecutor noted, Mr. Cohen’s actions reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time.”
