‘We’ve seen so many lies’: Alan Dershowitz tells Charlie Kirk Trump indictment will not hold up in court of law

Legal scholar and Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz appeared on the Charlie Kirk Show to discuss the new indictment against former President Donald Trump.  

The new incoming indictment in Fulton County against Trump alleges that Trump violated Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act among others because of a phone call with then Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger.  

phone call transcript wherein Trump told Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger to see if he could get enough votes in Georgia so that he could be elected.  

At the time the call was released it went through the news cycle framed as a “threat” to Raffensperger. 

Dershowitz, talking to Kirk, said that he doesn’t think this indictment, or the others, will be held up in a court of law.  

Dershowitz said that the way Trump told Raffensperger to get the votes was to basically get him to “look hard.” 

Dershowitz went on to say that he and others, in legally representing Al Gore in the 2000 election, had taken steps to legally challenge an election by putting together a “slate of alternate electors” in Florida.  

He said this is the legal way to challenge an election instead of indicting opponents in ongoing elections.  

Kirk and Dershowitz discussed the ease with which the indictment process, especially against someone like the former president, could be.

Dershowitz said that in the case of an incumbent administration going after an opponent in an election legally, the case must be a “slam dunk” and you basically have to “lean over backwards to be absolutely fair.”

Dershowitz and Kirk alike did not think the facts of the case would pass, and believe the prosecution of Trump is completely political.
