Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz called out Fulton County DA Fani Willis over the RICO charges against former president Donald Trump and man of his advisers. He said:
“First of all, nobody should take seriously that there was grand jury indictment. The fact that it was a grand jury indictment, it means nothing. It’s the prosecutor who indicted.
“The best evidence of that is that it was on his website before the grand jury even voted. Now, the whole strategy of all these four cases is to get a conviction before the election, even if they’re going to lose on appeal.
“I used to teach my students, many of them future prosecutors, if you bring a Rico case, that increases your chances of winning a trial and losing on appeal.
“The same thing is true with conspiracy and other cases involving mental states.
“And so all four of these cases are designed to get quick convictions in jurisdictions that are heavily loaded against Donald Trump.
“And these prosecutors don’t care as much as prosecutors generally do about having the convictions reversed on appeal, because that will happen after the election, which only goes to prove what I’ve been arguing now for months.
“If you’re going after the man who’s running against your incumbent president, you had darn well better have the strongest case possible.
“And these are among the four, at least three of them, three weakest cases I’ve ever seen against any candidate.
“We don’t know about the fourth, but it seems like it’s very much like the DC case.
“And if you’re going after the man running for president against your person, you have to have the strongest case.
“Otherwise, it becomes a banana republic.
“Anybody can prosecute anybody.
“And we’re opening the door to prosecution of Democrats by Republicans, Republicans by Democrats.
“It’s what Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist is the most dangerous threat to democracy, and we’re seeing it unfold in front of our eyes.
“Very, very tragically.
I’m not a Republican, I’m not a Trump supporter, but I care deeply about the Constitution.
“I care deeply about preserving the rule of law.
“And we’re seeing it being frittered away for partisan political purposes.”
The DA indicted these people:
Rudy Giuliani, Trump lawyer
Mark Meadows, White House chief of staff
John Eastman, Trump lawyer
Kenneth Chesebro, pro-Trump lawyer
Jeffrey Clark, top Justice Department official
Jenna Ellis, Trump campaign lawyer
Robert Cheeley, lawyer who promoted fraud claims
Mike Roman, Trump campaign official
David Shafer, Georgia GOP chair and fake elector
Shawn Still, fake GOP elector
Stephen Lee, pastor tied to intimidation of election workers
Harrison Floyd, leader of Black Voices for Trump
Trevian Kutti, publicist tied to intimidation of election workers
Sidney Powell, Trump campaign lawyer
Cathy Latham, fake GOP elector tied to Coffee County breach
Scott Hall, tied to Coffee County election system breach
Misty Hampton, Coffee County elections supervisor
“The appearance of justice is so compromised when a website announces an indictment presumably before the Grand Jury voted.”
