WATCH: Alan Dershowitz scolds fellow Trump-backer Sean Hannity for not disclosing his relationship with Michael Cohen

Published

on

Though he was ostensibly brought onto Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show to discuss fired FBI Director James Comey, regular guest Alan Dershowitz scolded the host for not disclosing to viewers that he has a personal (and likely professional) relationship with the president’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen.

“First of all, Sean, I want to say that I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show,” Dershowitz said, unprompted. “You could have said that you had asked him for advice or whatever, but I think it would have been much, much better had you disclosed that relationship.”

The host cut him off by noting that their relationship was “minimal,” to which Dershowitz, himself a lawyer, responded “you should’ve said that.”

“You were in a tough position because, A, you had to talk about Cohen, and, B, you didn’t want the fact hat you had spoken with him to be revealed,” the guest said.

“I have the right to privacy,” Hannity responded. “It was such a minor relationship.”

“You should have said that,” Dershowitz said.

Tribe, who has taught at Harvard Law School for 50 years and argued 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court, has been advising Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats during the impeachment inquiry. He was interviewed on Friday by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber.

Tribe said, "what it looks like is that the majority leader is going to conduct this trial as though he's a member of the defense team," Tribe said. "You know, it's an ancient principle, centuries-old -- actually over a millennium old -- that you can't be a judge on your own case and effectively, to allow Donald Trump to call the shots, violates that principle."

Published

on

A Washington Post editorial is singing the praises of the Judiciary Committee's memo about the impeachment charges President Donald Trump is facing. The memo, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” details the fundamental principles of the Constitution the founders outlined to guarantee the country wouldn't fall at the hands of corruption.

"The memo is remarkably originalist. Regardless of what happens with the impeachment, we are getting a much-needed civics lesson," The Post explained.

"During a seven-month period, the man and his family repeatedly told U.S. officials — including a San Diego immigration court judge, officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and border agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection — that they were not safe in Tijuana, the lawyer said."
