CNN’s Anderson Cooper LOSES IT After Alan Dershowitz Issues Bulletproof Defense of Trump [Video]

Democratic Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz silenced CNN host Anderson Cooper yesterday by saying that James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee showed no evidence that Donald Trump obstructed justice.

The Daily Caller reported that Dershowitz explained that the constitution allows for the president to direct an intelligence agent to stop or start an investigation at any time. As proof of this, he cited the fact that Trump could have easily pardoned former national security advisor Michael Flynn and the entire investigation would have been over anyway.

“Trump could have told Comey, ‘You are commanded, you are directed, to drop the prosecution against Flynn.’ The president has the right to do that,” he explained. “Remember also what the president could’ve done. He could’ve said to Comey, ‘Stop this investigation, I am now pardoning Flynn. That’s what President Bush did.”
Dershowitz then cited the case of Caspar Weinberger, who was pardoned by George H.W. Bush before he could be tried in connection to the Iran-Contra scandal.

“You cannot have obstruction of justice when the President exercises his constitutional authority to pardon, his constitutional authority to fire the director of the FBI, his constitutional authority to tell the director of the FBI who to prosecute, who not to prosecute,” the law professor said.
“You don’t believe he was trying to influence of impede any possible or further investigation into Flynn?” Cooper asked.

“What I’m telling you is that even if he did want it to impede it, and even if he did impede it, that is his constitutional power. He has the right to say, ‘You will not investigate Flynn,’” Dershowitz concluded.
BAM!

      And all the leftwing media headlines say he is guilty and a liar. so that is what they believe. It is soooo much easier than reading the whole story and then making up their own minds. Alan Desrhowicz may be a liberal, but he knows his constitution.

        Yes he does. Why can’t the libtards understand this, when they are told by a Law Professor that President Trump was within the law IF HE DID tell Comey to stop the investigation…………..they act like they have temporary deafness.

      It’s alright that the cabal gave Obama carte blanch to create a scandal a week out of the sheer incompetence of his ridiculous ideologies, but when Trump wants to move ahead with his economic agendas he can’t exercise his Constitutional powers to do so? (no boys and girls… that’s ALL IT IS) Oh! one other thing they don’t like, DRAINING THE SWAMP, RETURNING TO THE RULE OF LAW AND PROSECUTING THE PERPETRATORS)

      Anderson Cooper your mother isn’t impressed with you, obviously, being cut out of the Vanderbilt fortune,. “THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK (which is probably why your mother is disappointed in you) (or, you fell far from the family tree in the smarts department) HERE’S THE BREAD CRUMB TRAIL: ——— (Dershowitz is CORRECT) President Trump just did a MASTER CHECKMATE. (There are NO TAPES) follow— How can President Trump make sure WHEN Comey testifies, he won’t make up stories and exaggerate? “That’s it! I got the perfect tweet!” = (he tweeted) “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” – (now Comey gets scared, and not only is more truthful, but commits a crime and leaks to the press, and admits to it in a hearing) MASTER CHECKMATE. BOOM! The President is beginning to not only learn the politics of Washington, but master them. (At the president’s press conference yesterday “Where are the tapes? When are the tapes going to be released?” President Trump replies: “You won’t like the answer” THERE ARE NO TAPES – MASTER CHECKMATE – BOOM! ——- So Cooper, go on with fake news and continue converting Democrats to Republicans by the hour, or wise up and follow and report FACTS.

    I think there must be a way to file a suit against the media for false reporting. They would have to reveal their sources for their defense (which they cant do because those are fake also.) This false reporting is a crime against the American people and cannot keep going on. There should be a “protective order” or a “cease and desist ” order against them. All these lies are very upsetting, makes our country look so foolish and corrupt when it is just deceptive reporting. I personally am going to start calling the advertisers of these networks and demand that they pull their advertising dollars from these networks. If they refuse I am going to consult an attorney. This is MY country they are messing with

    I’m starting to worry about our President’s safety. Liberals found out that President Trump is not guilty of any crimes, but that is not good enough for these terrorists. They keep protesting just because they can, but when that finally stops and they feel helpless, they will do something that only mad animals do, I’m afraid they will hire some nut job to do harm to our President. I hope our government is keeping a close eye on these terrorists.Wake Up America!!!!!!!

    Sorry but Just because The president Does something, that Does Not make it Legal. Now CONGRESS will have to do the Impeachment but if the FBI and Or Mueller gives them hard Evidence that President Trump Tried to Impede Justice they should Impeach him. and If they Don’t They will probably lose 100 Seats in Congress and 20 in the Senate.

    The entire Democratic Party has proven beyond a doubt,, they are corrupt! For them to look for corruption elsewhere is just laughable. They turn on one another and never look back. There is not a shred of honesty between them all. Trump could lie about everything for the next 8 years and he would not begin to catch up with the lies of the left. They just make stuff up as they go. They have done it so long, they now believe their own lies. We need new parties in this country or a least a strong third one! The Democratic Party is a laughingstock and will probably not survive another 4 years. They eat their young.

    Not at all a fan, but PROFESSOR DERSHOWITZ is a well respected and renowned Constitutional authority. But we are forgetting one important factor here. Trump has denied making the remark that Comey said he took as a “request” to drop the Flynn matter. It is Comey’s word against Trump; “a classic he said, he said.” But the Left of which Cooper is a card-carrying member have an agenda. Every opportunity they get to bash Trump is eagerly taken. And taken in the context of Dershowitz’ it is a mute point. But to coin a phrase, “Lets not let the facts get in the way of a good story.” The Left a shameless pack of hacks. They need to accept the FACT that Trump is the President of the United States and should be treated with a measure of respect. Earth to Democrats; “Hillary lost.”

Somewhere along the way, a new type of Democrat has been born and I am not sure whom gave birth, but it was the worst thing that could ever have happened to that party!! I want to say it was started with the Obama era administration! I had no idea how insinuating his way of thinking had become! It is a new generation of infected thinking!
