Dershowitz for the defense: Only Giuliani has debased himself more zealously - 2020-01-21
I was never a Van Halen fan but nevertheless found myself wincing at a video of David Lee Roth in Las Vegas from a few weeks ago. He was always more flash and bombast than talent but seeing him bumbling around on stage mumbling every third word to the song, wholly oblivious to how badly things have gotten, was sad.
Similarly, Alan Dershowitz was always more flash and bombast than legal sage, but he wasn't an embarrassment to the profession until a few years ago. In the celebrity legalsphere, only Rudy Giuliani has debased himself more zealously.
George Conway is kinder to Dershowitz in this Washington Post piece, but not much, describing some of his recent arguments as merely "indefensible." One of Dershowitz's recent unsupported notions is that as a Constitutional matter the Supreme Court could step in and prevent the impeachment trial from moving forward.
