Professor Alan Dershowitz recently gave an interview to John Solomon of Just the News and claimed that America's justice system is being infected with the radical ideology of Critical Race Theory, not unlike what's happening in education. After watching the left's reaction to the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, it's impossible to disagree.

New details on the Alec Baldwin movie set shooting are emerging on a daily basis and there's plenty of speculation about how the investigation will ultimately play out. No one believes that Baldwin intended to kill one co-worker and wound another, but some of our best legal minds are starting to say that he could still face consequences.

Despite former Attorney General Eric Holder referring to himself in that role as then-president Obama's "wingman," Democrats have been swooning for the nearest fainting couch over a few tweets from President Trump regarding the Roger Stone sentencing recommendation.  They claim to be outraged because Trump, they screech, is undermining DOJ independence.

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.

One of the things that struck me about this article excoriating Alan Dershowitz for his recent defense (not support, but defense) of Trump is that author Elie Mystal doesn't actually engage in any detail with the substance of Dershowitz's arguments. Mystal's attack on Dershowitz (and Trump, for that matter) is ad hominem. I assume we're just supposed to take what the author says at face value. Or perhaps he assumes that if we're reading him at all, we already agree with him.

On her MSNBC show this morning and while discussing the grand jury that Robert Mueller has impaneled in Washington, DC, Joy Reid dismissed as "one of the more absurd arguments I've heard" Harvard law prof Alan Dershowitz's assertion that DC has "an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavorable to the Trump Administration." Paul Butler, a law prof at George Washington University, reinforced Reid: "Alan Dershowitz was my criminal law professor, but I'm here to teach him: Professor Dershowitz, you're just wrong on that issue."

Professor Alan Dershowitz is prepared to turn in his Democratic Party membership card if Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison assumes the chairmanship of the DNC. In a recent appearance on the FOX Business Network, Dershowitz was addressing the recent anti-Israel controversy with Obama and John Kerry when he made the announcement. The Hill reported:
Dershowitz: I'll leave Democratic Party if Ellison becomes DNC chair Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said Friday he'll leave the Democratic Party if Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is appointed the next chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Liberal attorney and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz criticized President Barack Obama's foreign policy after the U.S. did use its veto power at the UN to end a resolution on Israeli settlements. He said:
“He will go down in history, President Obama, as one of the worst foreign policy presidents ever,” Dershowitz said during a Monday interview on Fox & Friends. “What he did to Syria, and what he was partly responsible for happening in Aleppo, creating a vacuum for Russia. …
