Default Dershowitz: Obama asked FBI to investigate someone on behalf of Soros; Boys Scouts fi

It appears that Obama may be guilty of exactly what the left is accusing Trump of at this moment. Once again, if you want to know what the left is up too, just see what they are accusing Republicans of.

Dershowitz: Obama asked FBI to investigate someone on behalf of Soros; Boys Scouts file for bankruptcy

Dershowitz: 'Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros'
As President Trump faces ongoing criticism for allegedly interfering in the Roger Stone case -- and Attorney General William Barr confronts more calls for his resignation for his handling of the case -- Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz says he has proof that former President Obama "personally asked" the FBI to investigate someone "on behalf of George Soros," the liberal billionaire megadonor.


"There was a lot of White House control of the Justice Department during the Kennedy administration and I don't think we saw very many liberal professors arguing against that," Dershowitz said in an interview with Breitbart News that aired Sunday on SiriusXM. "I have some information as well about the Obama administration Ė which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point, but I'm not prepared to disclose it now Ė about how President Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros, who was a close ally of his."

Dershowitz did not say specifically who the target might have been. His claim comes as Barr, who has maintained that Trump never personally intervened in a criminal matter, has been hit by a letter reportedly signed by more than 2,000 former DOJ officials organized by a leftwing group demanding his resignation. In recent days, Barr has openly asked President Trump to stop tweeting about ongoing Justice Department matters, saying it made it "impossible" to do his job.

In an interview on "Hannity" Monday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., slammed Barr's critics, saying they have a political agenda separate from upholding the rule of law. Click here for more on our top story.

WOW! How will the MSM spin this story? Will they say that Dershowitz is a Nazi? A Trump yes man? or Mentally unstable?

They will bury it, unless some news media with testicles come forth and open it to more scrutiny.

What story? He has no specifics or names. Unless and until he does, this is just another version of the sort of bullshlt story Trump told about how he sent investigators to Hawaii to find out if Obama was born in the US and then claimed that he would reveal the amazing things they found (itís now nine yers later and he has yet to do so).

You mean it's like the Trump/Russia story? The MSM had no problem spinning that fake story as fact for 3 years.

But we know they won't do it for this story. I wonder why?

You are correct, without any names this is just hearsay. However, if and when Dershowitz releases those names, will you come back to discuss the topic?

But, but, but Birther, Birther, Birther. No need to bother with any issue or deal with any allegation just attack President Trump.

Let's apply the same standard the MSM uses on President Trump, the "if true" disclaimer followed by hyperbolic so-called reporting treating the allegation as fact. Uniform keywords like bombshell and game changer are then hysterically applied. So, Dershowitz claims must be treated as true until disproven, he is a Harvard professor and you are not.

During her testimony before the House intelligence committee Fiona Hill was asked a question touching on George Soros. She launched into a rhapsody of praise for the economy wrecking currency speculator and convicted insider trader. But hey, her politics had nothing to do with her testimony condemning Trump for violating her definition of US policy.

Are the Trump people still pushing this idiocy? The details of the whistleblower complaint (with names and dates, unlike Dershowitz) was corroborated by numerous fact witnesses who testified under oath. Direct questioning of the whistleblower serves no purpose other than to intimidate future whistleblowers. (And there is no such thing as a “right to face” an “accuser” who doesn’t provide actual testimony.)

It’s like the “Trump/Russia story” only if you’re dumb enough to think that an offhand reference in a Breitbart interview without providing any names or facts is comparable to a 400+ page report and the sworn testimony of numerous witnesses detailing Trump’s involvement in Russian crimes and cover ups.
