Liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says that after the Democrats’ “collusion” accusation collapsed, they are still attempting to “create crimes out of nothing” in a way reminiscent of the old KGB in the Soviet Union.
‘They’re very frightening to any civil libertarian’
“They’re very scary. They’re very frightening to any civil libertarian,” Dershowitz said Sunday on John Catsimatidis’ “CATS Roundtable” radio show. “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.”

Regarding Democrats’ impeachment investigation over the President’s alleged quid pro quo policy with Ukraine, Dershowitz said he has searched the law and transcript “from beginning to end — I couldn’t find the crime.”
‘Democrats are now making up crimes’
“It reminds me of Lavrentiy Beria, head of the KGB, said to Stalin,” Dershowitz said. “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.’ Which he really meant, I’ll make up the crime.”

Beria was the head of secret police organization NKVD, which was the predecessor to the KGB.
“And so the Democrats are now making up crimes,” Dershowitz continued. “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.”
Dershowitz added, “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.”
The Harvard law professor also defended White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s refusal to testify.

“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,” he said. “That’s not ‘obstruction of Congress,’ that’s checks and balances under our Constitution.”
‘We are all in danger’
Dershowitz said America is witnessing “a desperate effort to try to find crimes against President Trump: they’re just making it up.”
“And that means we are all in danger,” he added.
He’s not wrong. As Democrats continue to accuse Donald Trump of being in cahoots with Russia, it is actually their party who are behaving like the KGB.
Thanks to Alan Dershowitz for pointing it out.
