Dershowitz Blistered Trump for Corruption in 2016 January 30, 2020

Trump lawyer Alan Dershowitz absolutely hammered Trump for massive corruption during the 2016 election, calling him a “destabilizing and unpredictable candidate” who “openly embraces fringe conspiracy theories peddled by extremists” and that it was clear that he was “prepared to violate existing international and domestic laws.”

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, a member of President Donald Trump’s impeachment legal team, said in 2016 that Trump was more corrupt than Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. He also predicted that Trump would continue to be corrupt, if elected.

Dershowitz predicted in another interview cited by CNN that Trump would “embolden and strengthen some of the fascist elements in our society.”

He also wrote in his 2016 book that Trump was a “destabilizing and unpredictable candidate” who “openly embraces fringe conspiracy theories peddled by extremists,” according to NBC News. Discussing Trump’s foreign policy, Dershowitz added that it was “clear that Trump is prepared to violate existing international and domestic laws.”

He was right, of course. Trump was corrupt and has only gotten more brazen since gaining the power to profit from being president in multiple ways and to exert enormous pressure on others to do his bidding.
