Dershowitz tells Newsmax: A grand jury could prevent an indictment of Donald Trump.



According to Alan Dershowitz in an interview with Newsmax, the grand jury looking into former President Donald Trump may stop Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg from filing charges.

The “Get Trump” author claimed that Robert Costello’s testimony against Michael Cohen may have persuaded some jurors when he joined “Spicer & Co.” on Monday.

Dershowitz speculated that some people might be questioning charges even within the Manhattan district attorney’s office due to Costello’s remarks and other possible flaws in the prosecution.
“You can’t do this,” I would be telling Bragg if I were a young lawyer in his office, Dershowitz said, adding that he believes “there’s some disagreement going on within the office.” Some of the young lawyers in Bragg’s office were his classmates.


He continued, “You cannot ethically summon a witness to the stand who you know will lie to the jury. “Michael Cohen will testify before the jury, as you are aware. He misled his attorney. He misled the authorities. He has never been honest.”

His remarks come as sources now suggest that the New York grand jury’s reported indictment of Trump last week may occur in the coming days or not at all.

According to Bragg’s office, Michael Cohen received reimbursement from Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign for a $130,000 hush-money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

In addition, according to the prosecution, despite Cohen’s alleged payment, Trump had an affair with Daniels more than ten years previously, and the transaction may have constituted political extortion.

Nevertheless, an uncovered 2018 letter to the Federal Election Commission has raised even more questions about the DA’s case, in addition to Costello’s testimony that Cohen is an outstanding witness.

According to the letter from Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan, the Trump Organization and the Trump campaign were not involved in the transaction with Ms. Clifford and neither directly nor indirectly reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment.
