Alan Dershowitz: Democrats Want Trump ‘Killed’

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz has warned that Democrats want President Donald Trump to be “killed.”

Dershowitz was responding to a bill pushed by Democrats to strip Secret Service protection from anyone convicted of a crime.

The “DISGRACED Act” was introduced by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the former chairman of the Democrats’ anti-Trump January 6 Committee.

While not mentioning him by name, the legislation is clearly aimed at Trump as he faces his first criminal trial in New York.

Stripping Trump of Secret Service would raise the penalty of a guilty verdict to an extra-judicial death sentence, Dershowitz noted in an interview with Newsmax. 

Under current law, the Secret Service would continue to protect Trump if he were ordered to prison.

Thompson introduced the DISGRACED Act— which has eight Democrat co-sponsors – arguing it would ensure the “equal administration of justice” by removing “logistical difficulties” if Trump is jailed.

Dershowitz said he is skeptical that Judge Juan Merchan, a Biden donor, would go so far as to jail Trump.

However, if he did, it would be an effective death sentence without Secret Service protection.

“That’s ridiculous, that means they want him killed because he’s obviously a target,” the legal scholar said of Thompson’s bill.

“We live in an age where everybody is in danger,” he added.

“Look, Bobby Kennedy ought to be getting Secret Service protection, but certainly Donald Trump needs to get Secret Service protection.

“He’s not going to jail, but if he goes to jail obviously the law requires Secret Service protection.”

Thompson’s bill would strip individuals convicted of either state or federal felonies of Secret Service protection.

It means Trump’s state felony charges for his “hush money” case would be included.

The DISGRACED Act was obviously written with one person in mind.

However, Thompson insists it is just a coincidence that the bill “happens to include” Trump.

It comes as Trump is facing a mix of state and federal charges across four criminal cases, which are all led by Democrat prosecutors.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The Secret Service has already begun planning for the possibility of Trump being jailed for violating his gag order, ABC reported.

Democrat prosecutors are pushing Judge Merchan to hold Trump in contempt.

Dershowitz predicted Trump is “not going to jail” because it would backfire on Democrats.

“The judge is going to bluff, fine, and threat, but he’s not going to throw Donald Trump in jail,” he said.

“That would be a guaranteed victory…

“I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
