Alan Dershowitz, a renowned attorney, has criticized the indictment brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg against former President Donald Trump. Despite not being a political supporter of Trump, Dershowitz argued that the indictment is absurd and politically motivated. He further pointed out that Trump won’t receive a fair trial in Manhattan since judges and prosecutors are elected and lean left.
Dershowitz also warned that using former Trump attorney Michael Cohen as a witness could damage Bragg’s reputation and cost him his bar license. Furthermore, whoever leaked the sealed indictment is the only person guilty of a felony in this case, according to Dershowitz.
Dershowitz suggested that Bragg’s theory that Trump should have disclosed why he paid for a non-disclosure agreement to adult film star Stormy Daniels is unprecedented and represents selective prosecution. He also argued that even the misdemeanor allegation involving false entries is unprecedented.
