Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz overruled AG Merrick Garland on the Trump indictment. Alan said the indictment looks weak and doesn’t pass the Nixon test.
“It has to be at least as strong as the case against Richard Nixon, which we will remember led not to Democrats to demand his resignation, but Republicans, his own colleagues came to him and said, this case is so strong that we can’t support you.
“I haven’t seen any suggestion that Republicans agree with this indictment.
“If this indictment is as weak as it appears to be, from what has been disclosed so far, it may be the most dangerous indictment in political history.
“As everybody knows it’s the first time that a man who is the leading candidate against the incumbent president has been indicted by the incumbent administration in an effort to prevent him from running.
“It’s an extraordinarily dangerous indictment, potentially dangerous to the rule of law, dangerous to the neutral application of criminal justice, and dangerous to establishing a precedent that each side will weaponize the criminal justice system against their political opponents.
“That’s not America.”
Jim Jordan said:
“Merrick Garland’s DOJ: One standard of “justice” for Republicans, parents, and traditional Catholics.
“Another for Democrats.
“Sad day for America. God Bless President Trump.”
Speaker Kevin McCarthy said:
“Today is indeed a dark day for the United States of America.
“It is unconscionable for a President to indict the leading candidate opposing him.
“Joe Biden kept classified documents for decades.
“I, and every American who believes in the rule of law, stand with President Trump against this grave injustice. House Republicans will hold this brazen weaponization of power accountable.”
