On Sunday, liberal Democrat Alan Dershowitz compared his own party to Stalinist police.
Appearing on John Catsimatidis’s The Cats Roundtable radio show, the attorney ripped CNN over its impeachment coverage, explaining that the network won’t even let him come on anymore:
“CNN has banned me from their airwaves. CNN will not allow me on their network because they don’t want a liberal Democrat to be telling their viewers the truth about the Constitution.”
That’s a mouthful.
Alan asserted we’ve reached the point where left-wing congresspeople are digging into fantasy to try to nail Trump:
“The Democrats are now making up crimes.”
Host John asked, “Do the Democrats today think that the American public is so stupid on some of the things they’re doing?”
In Alan’s view, you should fear the Left:
“They’re very scary. They’re very frightening to any civil libertarian. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican; whether you come from New York or the middle of the country, you should be frightened by efforts to try to create crimes out of nothing.”
He called out another network by name:
“The latest twist was people on television — particularly CNN and MSNBC — are saying that if the president or somebody else was to name the whistleblower in the Ukrainian situation, that person would be guilty of a crime. I said in the afternoon yesterday — searching the federal criminal statutes from beginning to end — I couldn’t find the crime.”
That’s what Trump Jr. tried to tell the girls at The View last week — it’s not a crime. Sunny Hostin insisted that her law degree says otherwise (here).
But Alan has one, too, and he believes extremists on the side of the donkey have reached Stalinist-level jackassery:
“It reminds me of what Lavrentiy Beria — head of the KGB — said to Stalin. He said, ‘Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.’ Which, he really meant, ‘I’ll make up the crime.'”
The former Harvard professor ran down the Dems’ series of grabbed straws in their radical attempt to undo the voters’ pick and unseat the people’s president:
“And so the Democrats are now making up crimes. First, they made up collusion. ‘Ahh! Collusion! It’s a crime!’ I searched the statute books. There’s no crime of collusion, except when businessmen get together to collude against the anti-trust laws. But no crime of collusion with a foreign country.
“Then, after that, they said ‘obstruction of Congress.’ No, no, no, no, no. Obstruction of justice is a crime; obstruction of Congress is part of our system of checks and balances. If you get a subpoena from Congress, and you’re the president or in the executive department, and you think you have an executive privilege, you have an obligation not to respond. That’s not ‘obstruction of Congress.’ That’s checks and balances under our Constitution.
“So what we’re seeing is, in a desperate effort to try to find crimes against President Trump, they’re just making it up.”
Hence, potential peril amid a partisan play:
“And that means we are all in danger. Because if we can make up a crime…Congressman Cohen of Tennessee said that me and others who appear on Fox essentially were co-conspirators; we’re in on it. He’s now threatening people who are commentators — a liberal Democrat like me, who’s a commentator, that we’re in on it, that we’re co-conspirators. It is such a dangerous development to civil liberties, the ACLU should be up in arms. But they’re silent.”
As for CNN, their bias is for the birds:
“[T]hey have people out there who are just parroting the party line over and over and over again and misleading their viewers. They got virtually everything wrong on the Mueller report. They predicted everything wrong. And their viewers suffer. And when their viewers are denied my voice and the voice of other people to present a somewhat different narrative, it’s just a terrible thing.”

And how alone do you believe Alan — who endorsed Hillary in 2008 — is? How many other registered Democrats, over the past three years, have noted the party’s dash toward anti-MAGA madness?
