Alan Dershowitz is a prominent legal scholar and former Harvard professor of law renowned for his notable defence of both the State of Israel and OJ Simpson. He is also a long-standing supporter of the Democratic party. His views have been firmly situated on the liberal side of politics. Now that side has turned viciously upon him.
As he explains here, he had expressed grave reservations about the decision by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to empanel a 23-strong grand jury in the District of Columbia in his probe into possible Russian collusion with the Trump presidential campaign.
Empanelling it in DC, said Dershowitz, would give the prosecutor “a tremendous tactical advantage” because DC was “always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavourable to the Trump administration”.
As a result, Dershowitz has been attacked for “racism” by allegedly saying black voters wouldn’t give Trump a fair trial, and even – to his horror – as a “Trump apologist”.
