Attorney Alan Dershowitz responded to Jack Smith’s latest federal indictment against President Trump on Tuesday.
The indictment included four counts of Conspiracy to Defraud the United States, Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding, Obstruction of and Attempt to Obstruct an Official Proceeding, and Conspiracy Against Rights.
On Thursday, Trump was arrested and arraigned at the Elijah Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse in DC.
Dershowitz read the 45-page indictment thoroughly and carefully before commenting that it consists of a “retread J6 committee garbage, free speech violations by the Biden DOJ who should know better, and ESP-like assumptions and mind-reading nonsense”.
“It is one of the strangest documents I have ever read,” Dershowitz said, calling the indictment “open-ended and broad.”
Dershowitz said under the terms and conditions, Jack Smith “could be indicted.”
“Let me explain why. The core of the indictment is that Donald Trump lied to the public. He lied! He just lied to the public!” Dershowitz said.
He continued, “But Jack Smith lied. In his indictment, he outlines the speech that Donald Trump made on January 6. It’s a very important part of the indictment. [Jack Smith] deliberately, wilfully, and with malice leaves out the keywords! He doctors the speech!”
Jack Smith, much like the corrupt liars on the January 6 Committee omitted Trump’s call for his supporters to protest “peacefully and patriotically.”
“He leaves out the part that Donald Trump said, ‘I want you to protest peacefully and patriotically.’ – Peacefully and patriotically. Those are the two words that bring him within the First Amendment!” Dershowitz added.
