No such constitutional defenses for state investigations
On Fox and Friends Monday morning, the Harvard Law professor emeritus explained that while Trump has constitutional defenses in the federal investigation conducted by Mueller, that’s not the case in investigation currently underway at the behest of New York’s Southern District.
From Fox News Insider:
The “greatest risk” to President Donald Trump’s presidency and businesses is not Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but federal prosecutors in New York, according to Alan Dershowitz.
Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, explained on “Fox & Friend” on Monday that Trump has constitutional defenses to Mueller’s Russia probe, but that is not the case with respect to the investigations being conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
He noted that last week federal prosecutors secured a guilty plea from longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen and granted immunity to the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg.
A source told Fox News that Weisselberg’s immunity agreement was related to the grand jury probe into Cohen’s personal business dealings, including his hush money payments to two women, Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, who allege they had affairs with Trump.
“These are business investigations,” Dershowitz explained. “And of course, the president can’t be indicted, but his businesses can be indicted.”
Earlier this summer, New York’s Attorney General sued Trump, kiss kids, and his foundation, alleging repeated, “self-dealing.”DONATE
