Alan Dershowitz blasted Nancy Pelosi and effectively ended her reign of terror. Recently, Pelosi went too far and took the extraordinary step of calling for President Trump’s imprisonment.
The Washington Examiner reported that Alan Dershowitz criticized Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi after she stated that she wants to see Donald Trump in prison.
“As a liberal Democrat, I am appalled at Nancy Pelosi,” Alan Dershowitz, a civil liberties advocate and former Harvard law professor, stated on Thursday for Fox News.
“The idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system and calling for the imprisonment of the President of the United States without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense. It’s just outrageous.” He added.
“It sounds like the conversation between Stalin and Beria where Beria said to Stalin, ‘Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime,’” Dershowitz claimed.
“The idea of the most important Democrat in the United States calling for imprisonment of a president is such core violation of civil liberties, the rule of law, and America justice. She ought to be absolutely ashamed of herself,” he said.
Dershowitz’s remarks follow the California Democrat reportedly clamming that she wanted President Trump to be put in prison during a meeting of top Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday.
“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Nancy Pelosi said. She has maintained she would rather see President Trump defeated at the ballot box.
On Thursday, the President responded to her comments by giving her the nickname “Nervous Nancy.”
“I think she is a disgrace,” President Trump said. “I actually don’t think she’s a talented person. I’ve tried to be nice to her because I would have liked to have gotten some deals done. She’s incapable of doing deals. She’s a nasty, vindictive, horrible person.”
