Discussion: Dershowitz: Trump 'Should Be Worried' About McGahn Exit, Has 'Everything' To Do With Mueller

Even if McGahn didn’t deliberately incriminate the President, he’s probably filled some gaps, he’s probably provided them with some information immediately.”

“(Trump) should be worried,” he said.

I heard that interview, If you’re innocent, you don’t have anything to worry about ! Right ?

It does not occur to Dershowitz that if anyone on the white house staff is a potential witness against the president in a criminal proceeding we’ve got a bigger problem on our hands than whether trump should be worried.

Again, the idea that he isn’t fucking guilty of everything isn’t even worth lying about.

They haven’t bothered to lie about that for 6 weeks at least.

JESUS CHRIST ALAN!!! Stop running your mouth. McGahn did not ‘represent’ Donnie. He was there to make sure the people in the WH were following the fking law. YOU, who have practiced law for decades, are single handedly, trying to confuse the hell out of people with your pronouncements on multiple networks. These people are NOT Donnie’s personal attorneys… not Sessions or McGahn.

That’s what I was going to say. If you didn’t do anything wrong, why worry about what he had to say?

What has me puzzled is how Trump treats McGahn. He treats McGahn with more respect than I’ve seen him treat anyone besides Putin himself.

I think Josh is spot on that we’ll see some maneuver from T rumpp in the coming days or weeks to essentially suspend the rule of law as it applies to him. He honestly seems to think that being POTUS gives him a free pass to do anything he wants. I also agree with Josh that Republicans are rapidly falling in line with whatever he says or does. This part baffles me. One by one they do a 180, and bow down whenever they even hear his name. @grack 's discovery of the parallels between T rumpp and L. Ron Hubbard fits perfectly with the cult-like status emerging in this country around their shining bright reality star, which is exactly what it is. To follow T rumpp is to be indoctrinated in the Cult of T rumpp. I’m sure many of them even have the T rumpp brand tattooed on their asses. From my POV, the entire Republican Party is hell-bent on destroying every last democratic institution in this country, even if that means suspending elections in order to retain their power. How low can he go is no longer the question. That’s now been replaced with how long must this continue? This is way beyond bad enough to have warranted some form of intervention many, many months ago.

lf that’s so why does he hang back, talk about doing all these things and then do nothing?

Funny how the elephant in the room on every damned leak or comment about Trump from those in his circle is he’s going to be in big trouble when, not if, Mueller nails down a few irrefutable facts proving criminal behavior on his part. It’s an unspoken given should Mueller discover certain facts not yet revealed Trump is in peril. That he might be innocent of all wrongdoing is forfeited in the discussion or interview right out the gate.

The people around him talk him down. That’s why he’s getting rid of all of them. He does not want to live under anybody else’s rules.

For the most part Trump is immune from our laws. Sure, courts can slap down Executive orders, or prevent agencies and Cabinet departments from instituting certain policies or mandates. But as to criminal infractions Trump is free to do as he wants. Even breaking State laws does him no harm, arrest and prosecution would have to await his term in office ending. And in a true crunch he can pardon himself of Federal crimes.
To a very great degree Trump is free to do as he pleases, the laws be damned, unless and until 67 Senators can be found to convict him in an impeachment trial. And it won’t even get that far unless Dems take the House to impeach him in the first place.

Oh, I’ll bet it occurs to him; but that’s not the gig. Though statements like this are probably as close as he’ll get until everything finally comes out, at which point he’ll tutor us all in the nuances of the jurisprudence of treason.

Is that what he was doing? I thought he was there to help stack the courts.

I have no idea what happened to Dershowitz, maybe one of Jeffry Epstein’s underage friends causes some kind of brain damage from too high of blood pressure. But what is self evident to all non-FOX legal analysts, which is that Trump’s team is a bunch of criminals and that really bad things were happening and they would eventually flee the ship like rats when it went down, did not appear to have impacted Dershowitz’s addled brain. When the evidence comes out, and it is going to come up, Dershowitz’s bizarre defense of Trump will be the end of his reputation.

To my mind he seems to be testing to see how far he can go; when he gets no pushback from his mindless minions he goes further, then further still. So far no one in a position of influence has had the will or power to stop him, so he’ll continue to push until he runs into some serious resistance.
