Harvard Law professor and Trump-defending legal expert Alan Dershowitz had a gloomy response to Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony.
The law professor told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he was “shocked” by how much of the privileged communication between Cohen and his former client was revealed during the testimony
“This is not a good day for the president, clearly, to have his lawyer and intimate disclose so many things about him that don’t belong in the public domain,” Dershowitz told the veteran ABC anchor in a phone interview during the hearing’s recess.
Dershowitz went on to say that he’s worried Cohen’s testimony may have “weakened” attorney-client privilege.
“Whether [Cohen] wants to get a reduction in sentence or he wants to do the right thing, people can judge that for themselves,” the law professor mused.
