Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz just published a book called The Case Against Impeaching Trump.
Dershowitz continued to defend his premise, even as the president’s former campaign manager and personal attorney both became felons within minutes of each other on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Dershowitz appeared on Fox & Friends to maintain that Trump is not in any legal jeopardy.
“The death knell that they’ve been sounding on some other cable television is a bit exaggerated,” Dershowitz said. “There are many, many steps that need to be taken before the president is in legal jeopardy.”
Dershowitz gave his opinion that if Trump paid-off accusers with his own money and didn’t report it, it’s “not a crime.”
“The election laws are a morass of misdemeanors, felonies, crimes, non-crimes with exceptions,” he said.
Dershowitz then lashed out at Michael Cohen, saying “the only evidence that the president has done anything wrong comes from a man who is admitted to be a liar.” (Michael Cohen taped conversations with the president, which would appear to solve this perceived problem.)
“Every campaign has violated some technical campaign law,” he said.

Iran probes seized UK-flagged tanker — Britain to hold emergency meeting
ran warned Sunday that the fate of a UK-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf depends on an investigation, as Britain prepared for an emergency security meeting on Tehran's action.
Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
Video footage released by Iran showed the Stena Impero tanker being surrounded by speedboats before troops in balaclavas descend a rope from a helicopter onto the vessel.
In an audio recording of a radio exchange, an Iranian officer can be heard ordering the tanker to change course "immediately".
For Cubans — a day at the beach is no easy task
Cuba's constitution guarantees its people access to its beaches, but many locals are unable to enjoy the island's pristine white sands and crystal clear blue waters.
While foreign tourists flock to such paradisiacal Havana sites as Varadero, which was this year named the second most-beautiful beach in the world by American travel website TripAdvisor, Cubans are typically found elsewhere.
"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.
Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.
