Alan Dershowitz gives the Megalomanic Dictators Justification to avoid Impeachment


Alan Dershowitz shocked the American Political World at the Senate Impeachment Trial of Donald Trump on January 29 by stating:

“If a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment.”

This is the defense:

  • Megalomanic dictators used to justify their repressive rule in banana republics.
  • Totalitarian strongmen like Putin use to rationalize his continued leadership in Russia.
  • Mass murderers like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao used to explain the genocidal acts they committed against opponents and minorities.

This is not a defense that a lawyer of the President of the United States, a nation that is a Democratic Republic, should present in the well of the Senate in an Impeachment Trial.

This is a defense all who love Democracy and Republics should shun and condemn.

Republicans like Martha Coverup McSally who acquit this President without allowing for additional witnesses and due process will show the American People that they prefer the rule of a Megalomaniac Dictator-Demagogue rather than a Democratic system with Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances.

The American People need to show their disdain for Dershowitz’s position and those Senators who support it and vote for acquittal by voting them out when they run for reelection.

The People and the country need patriots in Congress, not collaborators.

They need Legislators that believe in the American Dream, not the Cult of Trump.

They need public servants that follow the Constitution, not those that want to tear it up.

  1. Alan “I kept my underwear on” Dersh is landing himself in the history books, and history will not be kind.

    But he’s an attention whore and can’t help himself.

    As a side note, Alan Dershowitz was not only Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyer (nothing wrong with that, even bad guys have a right to representation), he was also pals with the dead child molester, and has been accused by a woman of raping her at one of Dead Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile camps.

    And Dersh wrote an op ed back in the late 1990’s saying we should get rid of statutory rape laws and lower the legal age for girls to get molested by creepy old dudes.

    He said that a 19 year old having sex with a 17 year old is no different than a 40 year old having sex with a 16 year old.

    That’s right! Trump, the grab ’em by the pussy president, has an accused child rapist on his legal team.

    Oh, yeah! And Ken Starr was booted out of his cushy college job for covering up multiple rapes because football!

    Trump is dragging America through the sewer, and the GOP is complicit.
