Alan Dershowitz Responds to GA Charges: ‘We’re Seeing the Constitution Being Frittered Away for Partisan Political Purposes’

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has called out Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis over the RICO charges she’s filed against President Donald Trump and many of his advisers.

As Slay News reported earlier, the Georgia grand jury has indicted President Donald Trump, charging the 45th POTUS with felony racketeering and numerous conspiracy charges.

In addition to charging Trump, the grand jury returned an indictment on Monday of 18 other people as co-defendants.

The full list of the indicted is below:

  • Donald Trump
  • Rudy Giuliani, Trump lawyer
  • Mark Meadows, White House chief of staff
  • John Eastman, Trump lawyer
  • Kenneth Chesebro, pro-Trump lawyer
  • Jeffrey Clark, top Justice Department official
  • Jenna Ellis, Trump campaign lawyer
  • Robert Cheeley, lawyer
  • Mike Roman, Trump campaign official
  • David Shafer, Georgia GOP chair
  • Shawn Still
  • Stephen Lee, pastor
  • Harrison Floyd, leader of Black Voices for Trump
  • Trevian Kutti, publicist
  • Sidney Powell, Trump campaign lawyer
  • Cathy Latham, tied to Coffee County breach
  • Scott Hall, tied to Coffee County election system breach
  • Misty Hampton, Coffee County elections supervisor
  • Ray Smith

“First of all, nobody should take seriously that there was grand jury indictment,” Dershowitz said.

“The fact that it was a grand jury indictment, it means nothing.

“It’s the prosecutor who indicted.

“The best evidence of that is that it was on his website before the grand jury even voted.

“Now, the whole strategy of all these four cases is to get a conviction before the election, even if they’re going to lose on appeal.

“I used to teach my students, many of them future prosecutors, if you bring a RICO case, that increases your chances of winning a trial and losing on appeal.

“The same thing is true with conspiracy and other cases involving mental states.

“And so all four of these cases are designed to get quick convictions in jurisdictions that are heavily loaded against Donald Trump.

“And these prosecutors don’t care as much as prosecutors generally do about having the convictions reversed on appeal, because that will happen after the election, which only goes to prove what I’ve been arguing now for months.

“If you’re going after the man who’s running against your incumbent president, you had darn well better have the strongest case possible.

“And these are among the four, at least three of them, three weakest cases I’ve ever seen against any candidate.

“We don’t know about the fourth, but it seems like it’s very much like the DC case.

“And if you’re going after the man running for president against your person, you have to have the strongest case.

“Otherwise, it becomes a banana republic.

“Anybody can prosecute anybody.

“And we’re opening the door to prosecution of Democrats by Republicans, Republicans by Democrats.

“It’s what Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist is the most dangerous threat to democracy, and we’re seeing it unfold in front of our eyes.

“Very, very tragically.

“I’m not a Republican, I’m not a Trump supporter, but I care deeply about the Constitution,” noted Dershowitz, a lifelong Democrat.

“I care deeply about preserving the rule of law.

“And we’re seeing it being frittered away for partisan political purposes.”
