(NationalSentinel)Â Double Standards: Liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz savaged the American Civil Liberties Union on Monday for the civil rights organization’s refusal to come to the assistance of Michael Cohen, President Donald J. Trump’s private lawyer, after FBI agents raided his New York office last week.
During the raid, agents confiscated materials that are likely shielded by attorney-client privilege, yet Dershowitz — who admits he did not vote for Trump — said the ACLU’s silence proves it is a far-Left organization not really interested in defending everyone equally, especially if they hold a different political viewpoint.
â€œIf this were Hillary Clinton, theyâ€™d be raising money left and right defending Hillary Clintonâ€™s right,â€Â DershowitzÂ said.
â€œBut now theyâ€™re raising money left and left, attacking Trump and putting the attack on Trump over defending our civil liberties. Why do you think Iâ€™m here all the time? Why do you think I’m speaking in favor of man I voted against? Because the ACLU is dead in the water,â€ he told theÂ Fox News morning program “Fox & Friends.”
â€œWho has ever heard of the ACLU coming in, justifying, defending but applauding a raid on a lawyerâ€™s office, which may very well have taken material that was lawyer-client?â€ he added.
Dershowitz accused the civil rights group of having an extreme liberal bias and an organization that has forgotten its original mission of fighting for the rights of all Americans.
â€œIt is absolutely political,â€ he concluded. â€œItâ€™s a partisan hard-Left political organization which no longer cares about the civil liberties of all Americans.
“It is agenda driven, money driven and anti-Trump driven,” he concluded.
