Lawyer Alan Dershowitz called the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump a “violation of the bible” during the Monday edition of Charlie Kirk’s radio and podcast program, The Charlie Kirk Show.
“Can you talk about how this is bigger than Trump about if you’re able to do this to political opponents and dissidents — it sets bad precedent. It allows prosecutors to go above and beyond, and it actually makes us less free,” Kirk said.
“Without a doubt,” Dershowitz agreed. “This is the worst example in my 60 years of practicing criminal law, of targeting somebody for prosecution and then rummaging through the books, giving people immunity and trying to concoct a crime that doesn’t exist. And if this is allowed to succeed, none of our liberties is safe.”
“You know, today it’s a Republican who’s a target. Tomorrow it’s a Democrat, and the day after tomorrow, it’s your Uncle Charlie, or your nephew, or your niece,” Dershowitz explained.
Dershowitz then claimed that prosecuting Trump wasn’t just a violation of the law but of the Bible as well.
“There’d be no limits on what prosecutors can do to their political enemies, and they’re gonna do it to people who are running against them for DA next. And it’s just such a violation. And not only a violation of American law and civil liberties, it’s actually a violation of the Bible. The Bible instructs judges two things — ‘don’t take bribes,’ that’s obvious. But the number one thing is ‘don’t recognize faces.’”
