Alan Dershowitz Confirms Trump Did Not Break The Law
Longtime liberal Alan Dershowitz confirms that President Donald Trump did nothing wrong when he allegedly authorized Michael Cohen to privately pay women not to come forward with affair accusations during the presidential campaign.
No campaign funds were used for the payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels and others, so there is no legal violation, despite the breathless reporting from the mainstream media trying to create grounds for impeachment against the president.
“That has been disputed, but if the president gave the money out of his own pocket he can give a billion dollars. He could have put a billion dollars in the campaign and paying 100 million of women who accused [him] falsely…it wouldn’t be a violation of any campaign law as long as [the campaign] reported it,” Dershowitz said on Fox News.
This echoes Press Secretary Sarah Sanders’ statement that Trump did “nothing wrong” with respect to Cohen’s payments.
Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen have both been snared in the Legal Industrial Complex’s quest to intimidate people close to Trump in order to get impeachable material on the president.
However, the mainstream media largely ignores the fact that Paul Manafort worked for the Podesta Group, run by Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s brother Tony.
The case is narrative fodder for mainstream journalists eager to tie Trump to his campaign manager, but the actual implications of the case could lead back to the heart of the Democratic Party establishment.
Fox News previously reported: “The Podesta Group reportedly worked with Manafort — a former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — to lobby on behalf of Ukrainian interests in the United States, without properly registering at the time under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA), Carlson said. Manafort and the group worked on a campaign called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, the Washington Times reported.”
FARA violations are serious business, and all of this Ukranian work obviously ties into media-invented narratives regarding Russian collusion. Ukraine has a powerful lobby in Washington to agitate against its rival Russia.
Tony Podesta was never granted immunity by Robert Mueller because alternative media led by Tucker Carlson shut down the idea of that ploy after the press started floating it.
So Tony Podesta remains eligible to be charged, and it’s clear that the Podesta Group link could complicate media narratives.
However, so far President Trump has been unable to command control of his own Department of Justice led by Jeff Sessions, and the anti-Trump conspirators are racking up legal wins in criminal court while Trump’s moves have been less visible. Despite arrests of Harvey Weinstein and some other high-profile establishment players, Trump is still saddled with a DOJ that is essentially being run by anti-Trump conspirator Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who just can’t seem to get himself fired no matter what he does.
