Dershowitz makes a good clear line in the sand between bias and interference in an election. When will the interference investigation begin? And how can Strozk still be employed by the FBI???

Not only is he still employed, but he wants to testify so he can clear his “good” name. How can this be? Unless he is stupid enough to believe that he was saving America from Trump???? Is this Comey’s loyalty to a “higher order”?
The higher loyalty these clowns talk about is their Over Inflated EGO…along with their Socialist/Communist Agenda! They got it from Obey!

Strzok willing to testify is nothing more than a lawyers ploy to improve Strzok public image.
Strzok is still working for the FBI and cannot talk about ongoing investigations.

Even if Strzok testifies that “he was aving America from Trump” who made him Judge and Jury? He does not have that authority – legally. He administered that atuthority illegal. That’s a felon.
If your first loyalty is to a “higher order,” fine and well, but those who violate proper procedure or the law in pursuit of that loyalty should be ready to pay the legal price for doing so. Martin Luther King did so; Christian martyrs did and still do. Comey invokes St. Thomas Becket, but does not come close to emulating him. To weasel out of your responsibility is feckless behavior that makes your devotion suspect, at least.
Those in ‘Operation Trump’ a.k.a. ‘The Big Ugly’ are collectively sh!tting their pants at the thought of Strzok testifying. He’s still employed with the FBI so he’s compelled to testify. Lisa Page was employed well past the point she was known to be in on the conspiracy then fired ‘resigned’. This will be the case with Strzok. Note that the DOJ still has Ohr as an employee because we haven’t reached the public fully knowing what the DOJ did yet.
Everyone just chillax.
If Alan Dershowitz does not know why Mr. Strozk is still employed by the Federal Bureau of Incompetence, that tells you all you need to know (that the corruption is not going to take care of itself in the current configuration of personnel over there).
> “If Alan Dershowitz does not know why Mr. Strozk is still employed by the Federal Bureau of Incompetence, that tells you all you need to know … ”
Why do you say that?
Do you believe that Alan Dershowitz has a magic back-channel into the FBI so that he knows everything, when the Congressional Oversight can’t get the FBI or DoJ to give them the documents that have been under subpoena for almost a year?
What are you asserting here?
Inquiring minds want to know.
I would think that a person as well connected to the Power structure in DC, Dershowitz should KNOW what is going on rather than coming out with statements that belie his knowledge of the entire situation. How’s about doing your homework Dersh before opening the pie hole!

Or pushing us toward Revolution, if we could get our act together.
It seems like they’re just pushing us now for fun, like they discovered that they can get away with just about anything, so why not push the envelope and see if there is any limit at all.
And they have found that there is no limit. They can do anything they want, and We the Sheeple apparently aren’t going to do squat about it.
What you are seeing is the strange confluence of totalitarian systems with anarchic systems. What they share in common is LAWLESSNESS. These systems are both arbitrary, whimsical in their exercise of power, which is always in session rather than authority. Authority is much different than power. Authority is exercised under the rule of law, and carries with it requisite RESPONSIBILITIES of those exercising the authority, while Power is imposed top-down and without regard to anything but the whimsy of those who hold the levers of power.
Americans deal with these POWER systems everyday, mostly in school and work environments in which whole systems of power and control are imposed arbitrarily. In those environments, particularly workplaces, those with no positions of power by TITLE can influence those who hold the positions of power, from behind the scenes, in order to obtain rewards from those in power. It is at this level of society where people will suddenly recall the strange mix of arbitrary exercise of power alongside the chaos of anarchy.
I think what we are seeing laid bare is what has been going on for many years in the DC Establishment. Those in power do whatever they d@mn well please and get away with it. I want to see some heads roll, literally…guillotines for the guilty anyone?
OMG! Alan Dershowitz is a (D) Party Loyalist whom I now love!
What he said about Republicans should now use this Manafort case to set a standard for ALL Americans (especially the poor) who are in jail on the basis of “Preventative Detention” (when a Judge decides that someone who has not committed an act is likely to commit an act), and without a trial, is sentenced to jail.
Dershowitz was asserting that is what happened to Manafort, and it is wrong.
By G-d, I hate Donkeys, but I find myself loving the FAIR and BALANCED approach to Civil Liberties as articulate by Alan Dershowitz.
I honor his bravery for sticking to his principles, and bucking the (D) Party leaders, to argue Equality of Civil Liberties for All Americans.
Dershowitz is crossing the aisle.
Kim Kardassian-West crossed the aisle.

“Dershowitz was asserting that is what happened to Manafort, and it is wrong.” He also then pivots away from Manafort to how the legal system is also doing (jailing) millions of the poor. Dershowitz is a tool of the deep state very slick but a tool.
Not millions, thousands.
“OMG! Alan Dershowitz is a (D) Party Loyalist whom I now love!”
Don’t turn your back on him.
Yep DIMS specialize in the ‘knife in the back’ way of negotiating!
Preventive detention for a violent criminal is legal and may be warranted in many cases … I’m sure its being abused in plenty of cases as well (just like Manafort)
Meeting them halfway is a very bad idea, just what they want. Dershowitz doesn’t want Hillary Clinton punished under the law. I think his real agenda is to prevent that and to compromise us. Don’t fall for it. No deals, no compromise.
I think the most important question to be asked in this matter is what was implemented between the time of the ‘we will stop it’ text and the ‘think of it like an insurance policy’ text that was considered the insurance policy using FBI/DoJ resources, as well as all who were all the individuals involved in it, against the Trump campaign since that would have to be considered election interference.
At least these two texts provide two specific dates to look between for anything that was started in reference to these issues. It should narrow down the search field quite a bit to start the disection process.

Rachel, you have the makings of a good Inspector General. Have you ever considered a career in Law Enforcement (LE) at any level. I would endorse you in any LE Analytic role!
In that “insurance policy” text is the meeting in Andy’s office.
Is is obvious that those involved in the entire Big Ugly formed a CONSPIRACY to get Trump and Help Hitlery! So big boys in law enforcement, why aren’t they all in JAIL and on TRIAL?
At the time those texts were sent was also when he and two others were mishandling the investigation of the Weiner laptop
That’s one Biggie.
And now we know another attempted fake Russian plant contacted Trump’s friend Roger Stone. This is getting ridiculous!
1. Pretend Russian plants / spies
2. Fake women asserting Trump tried to kiss them, or ask them out, 15 years ago. (So!)
3. Incriminating HRC information buried. Laptop, server, U1, etc.
4. MSM hatchet jobs

Did he not start the whole Russia investigation just 2 days prior to that text or am I mistaken?
For all of Dershowitz’s expressed outrage at injustice being done by the deep state, remember that if his chosen candidate had won, it would have been ten times worse and it would have been permanent. I’d like to see somebody ask him to reconcile that.

Al is never to be trusted. Just embraced before he returns to the womb.

F##k Dershowitz. How he turned a discussion about FBI corruption into an indictment of the everyday Criminal Justice System I’ll never know. And I don’t really care to know. I’m about fed up with bleeding heart liberalism.
Be certain that Jonathon Turley and Allan Dershowitz are longtime swamp critters in good standing. It’s always a “yeah but…” thing with these two. Put another way if you and I had done one scintilla of the crap that this cabal has perpetrated we’d be picking out draperies in our jail cell. Or they’d sick a Lois Lerner and her tax goons on you, for having the temerity to go against the Imperial Federal Government, financially ruining people. Did you notice Turley/Dershowitz coming to the defense of the Tea Party Patriots pro-bono? The point is, enjoy their legal overview as it seems reasonable, but the second it goes up against their beloved democrat party in any substantive way look for a change in a nano second. “yeah, but…they gave it a fair look and there was no there, there, now carry on.”
Yep the Jonathon Turley and Allan Dershowitz duo along with MuleFace and his DIM thugs are all about using words to attempt to justify themselves. Don’t fall for the legal mumbo-jumbo they are selling, we need straight answers and all the Big Ugly Perps in JAIL for at least 30 years for TREASON…or Hangings!
Alan always states, he is glad to see conservatives finally fighting the civil liberties battle. This statement is out right disgusting. Alan has lived too long in a bubble of liberals. While I respect him, he’s bias sometime clouds his judgement. He hasn’t been out to realville, where it is the democrats that own the local judiciary system and it is conservatives fighting to protect the US Constitution.
I like Dershowits and am glad his is being red pilled .
Reagan used to be on the other side also before becoming a republican.
I give credit to Dershowits for speaking out and defend injustice accepting that the left will hate him for speaking out against their mantra. Not many people will speak up if they see wrong specially if it is from the other side and politics.
Thank you Dr Dershowits
“He hasn’t been out to realville, where it is the democrats that own the local judiciary system and it is conservatives fighting to protect the US Constitution.”
Well said, indeed! And conservatives “finally” protecting civil liberties? KMA, Al.
Dershowitzis is liberal crap and always has been. He throws out what gets consumed as a conservative opinion every so often just to be able to present himself as maybe, somewhat middle of the road.
He just said that the millions of dollars that the ACLU just took from Soros might cause them to not be non-partisan anymore.
The ACLU? Non-Partisan?
Anybody that would posit that the ACLU was ever non-partisan is either a liar or an idiot.
Alan D is the consummate fickle legal commentator, who will never fully commit to a position unless there is profit in the position. He says all the right things on the hot issues to keep the pay checks flowing from the left and right wing as well as maintain a foothold in both camps for future use. Gee … sounds like most the members of congress.
