Controversial lawyer Alan Dershowitz on Tuesday said Michael Cohen’s guilty plea for breaking campaign finance law may not be as big a problem for President Trump as his critics hope and his supporters fear.
“This is the beginning of a story that will unravel over time, but it’s not nearly as deadly lethal as some have portrayed it as being,” Dershowitz, a staunch defender of Trump’s civil liberties amid special counsel Robert Mueller’s federal Russia investigation, said during an interview on Fox News.
The article goes on to state the following:
Dershowitz downplayed the significance of election law violations, claiming “every” administration and presidential candidate commits them.
“Here, they’re trying to elevate this into an impeachable offense or a felony against the president,” he continued. “Naming someone as an un-indicted co-conspirator is very unfair because he has no opportunity to defend himself or herself. And yet that may happen.”
