18. My Live WCBS Interview with Alan Dershowitz Ahead of Impeachment Trial
▪ Harvard Law Prof Waffles on Scope of His Role
▪ Asserts ‘I’m not a full-fledged member’ of impeachment defense team
▪ Claims Sekulow is not conflicted by Parnas Allegations
▪ Dershowitz arguably should be considered an expert witness in this case and Dems should get a rebuttal witness.
▪ Sekulow should be called to testify on Parnas representation.
When is a lawyer an advocate and when is he or she a witness? And if a lawyer is a witness, should he or she be allowed to represent their client in that case?
More specifically, if Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican majority are not going to allow witnesses at the impeachment trial of President Trump, should two of the President’s lawyers, who arguably fall into the category of witnesses, be allowed to represent him?
Those issues are central to the live on-air interview I conducted with Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz about his role on President Trump’s impeachment defense team in my 2pm hourly newscast on WCBS Newsradio 880 on Saturday.
