    Alan Dershowitz files $300 million defamation suit against CNN

    Famed attorney and Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz filed a defamation suit against CNN on Tuesday seeking $300 million for what he called a "willful, deliberate, malicious effort to destroy my credibility."

    Dershowitz told Fox News that CNN selectively edited a clip of his remarks from the Senate floor during President Trump's impeachment trial where he broke down the illegalities surrounding a "quid pro quo" as a member of the president's defense team.


    The Constitutional scholar alleges in the lawsuit that the news outlet propagated a “sea of lies” by re-airing only part of his quote, which he believes was part of a deliberate effort "from the very top" to frame him for claiming “that the President of the United States could commit illegal acts as long as he thought it would help his reelection and that his reelection was in the public interest," The Wrap reported.

    "What CNN did here, and it pains me to say this because, you know, I have friends over there. What they did is they just totally doctored the tape," Dershowitz told Sean Hannity on Tuesday.

    Could it be that the notorious, (for being a Liberal), Alan Dershowitz, is seeing the error of his ways, and finally realizing that he's a Conservative, after all? Will he ever admit to it, or would that take some of his fame away?

    Then again, he's a Liberal. He'll do what suits that showman the best.


    *As an aside - 2 things, actually: I'm not familiar w/the "NYT vs. Palin" case, but Dershowitz said, "NYT vs. Sullivan."

    Why, oh WHY, are Fox News links to their vids about the worst on earth?! I hope this helps spare some people the trouble:

    EDIT: Nope, guess not.

    This seems the only way to bring down the fake news...bleed them to death.

    CNN will claim Dershowitz is a "public figure" therefore anything goes.

    Good point. Sandmann seemed to be after the same point, as well. More for exposing them, than anything else. I don't know as anyone will be able to 'bleed them to death', but it's a good start.

    Heaven knows, President Trump has done his utmost to expose them for what they are, but Dershowitz going after them is even better.

    Obama was a public figure, and he thought that his re-election was in the public interest.

    They'll pay with the taxpayer money that the Clinton's and Obama's stole from our treasury to fight the Democrat future wars with us . They are the ones that are funding this insurrection and they are using cash that the treasury put in their accounts .
    How many billions were lost in Hillary's State Department audit that the Obama administration never investigated ?
    Who authorised Obama's midnight Cargo flights of cold hard cash involving $200 billion to Iran in the middle of the night . Where do you get that kind of cash with out authorization ,who flew it , who handled it ,and who hid it ? How easy was it to do to personally have skids of money dropped off at friends garages at that point ? Nobody on our side in government ever checked it out as far as I've read .
    Obama ran this country into Trillions of dollars in debt so whats a few trillion in cash for future endeavors ?
    It happened . The DNC was bankrupt during the Hillary run - so much so that the Clinton's lent hundreds of millions to the DNC to keep it solvent . Money stolen from us .

    I wonder how many conservatives saw the above sentence & fainted in surprise? I'm betting NONE.
