Alan Dershowitz Threatens to Sue ‘These Idiots on CNN’ for Lying About Him (VIDEO)
Renounced attorney, former Harvard Law professor, and member of President Trump’s legal counsel during the impeachment trial, Alan Dershowitz spoke with Ben Shapiro earlier this week and told him that it is very likely that he’s going to sue CNN.
Dershowitz alleges that they deliberately lied by misrepresenting something he said on the Senate floor during the trial and they did so will ill-intent.
Basically, what Dershowitz is saying happened is the equivalent of me saying something like, “You know I’m allergic to butter. Why would I want butter on my toast?” and them twisting it to me as having said, “…I want butter on my toast.”
Dershowitz said, “It was doctored. It was as if I said the following, let me tell you now what I don’t believe. I don’t believe a president seeking re-election can do anything, and CNN ran: A president seeking re-election can do anything.”
“That’s not protected by the First Amendment, and it shouldn’t be protected,” said Dershowitz.
“What CNN did is they took all of that out and they made it sound like I was saying [something else]. And then you had these idiots on CNN, people like Paul Begala, who said basically what I said was a president can do anything illegal.”
“I suspect that what happened is, and it’s more than a suspicion, it’s based on information that I have, is that [Jeff] Zucker, the head of CNN, made a willful deliberate decision to have me say something that sounded idiotic in order to hurt my credibility on the hour and ten [minute] speech that I made in front of the Senate. And they deliberately omitted what I had said about criminal conduct to make it sound like I was saying a president can do anything, and then everybody followed suit, everybody on CNN.”
I’m thinking of suing cnn for doctoring a video of me.
