Dershowitz: Democrats Making Up Crimes Like Kgb

Source: WND, Tuesday November 12th 2019

'They're very frightening to any civil libertarian'

Liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says Democrats, after their failed "collusion" investigation, are still trying to "create crimes out of nothing," emulating the KGB in the Soviet era.

"They're very scary. They're very frightening to any civil libertarian. 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, he said in an interview Sunday on John Catsimatidis' "CATS Roundtable" radio show..

Commenting on the House Democrats impeachment investigation based on an alleged quid pro quo with Ukraine, Dershowitz said he has searched the federal criminal statutes "from beginning to end — I couldn’t find the crime."

"It reminds me of Lavrentiy Beria, head of the KGB, said to Stalin, he 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 the Soviet security and secret police organization NKVD, 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.

He pointed out that Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., has accused him and others who appear on Fox News of being "co-conspirators."

"He’s now threatening people who are commentators, a liberal Democrat like me, who’s a commentator, that we’re in on it, that we’re co-conspirators," Dershowitz said. "It is such a dangerous development to civil liberties."

Dershowitz also criticized CNN for banning him from its airwaves.

"CNN will not allow me on their network because they don’t want a liberal Democrat to be telling their viewers the truth about the Constitution," he said.
