“Trumped Up” author Alan Dershowitz called out the ACLU for not reacting strongly to the FBI’s unprecedented raid on Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney.
Dershowitz claims the raid was unorthodox and uncalled for, and believes the ACLU would’ve stepped in if the matter involved Hillary Clinton.
Fox News reports the following:
“Alan Dershowitz reacted to a federal raid on the office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
Dershowitz said it is a “dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.”
He said that federal agents confiscated many items from the office, and predicted that they included confidential documents and files pertaining to attorney-client privilege discussions with Trump.
Dershowitz said that Trump’s team, as well as Cohen, have thus far cooperated with the Robert Mueller-led probe into alleged Russian collusion.
“If this were Hillary Clinton [having her lawyer’s office raided], the ACLU would be on every TV station in America jumping up and down,” he said. “The deafening silence of the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into the lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling.””
.@AlanDersh: [Michael Cohen] cooperated completely, and what did they get for it? A raid on the office with everything being taken. So this sends a powerful message that cooperation is not going to be rewarded by Mueller…” #Hannity pic.twitter.com/itLVl7kLwS
