Alan Dershowitz: Trump Indictment Would be ‘Targeted Injustice’
by Joel B. Pollak
Harvard Law School professor emeritus and noted civil libertarian Alan Dershowitz has panned the potential prosecution of former President Donald Trump, saying he is the victim of “targeted injustice” by Democrats.
Trump announced Saturday that he expected to be arrested by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on charges of falsifying business records related to an alleged “hush money” payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The payment to Daniels was to ensure her silence toward the end of the 2016 campaign about an alleged affair she had with Trump. But the payment was not illegal — and it did not even violate campaign finance rules, as the Federal Election Commission (FEC) apparently concluded in dropping its investigation into the matter. Federal and local prosecutors who have targeted Trump in every other way have also shied away from the case.
