Jeffery Toobin calls out Alan Dershowitz for carrying water for Trump, Roy Cohn

Trump is about as innocent as OJ hey Alan?
Noticed this same thing with Lou Dobbs, angry crazy support of Trump in everything since he became president. Seems to be a couple old farts fading away looking to saddle up to the fascist to get invited to the White House for a job or a SCOTUS nomination.

I recently read that Trump with all his present legal problems opined that he still had his mentor Roy Cohn around for him.

Roy Cohn is considered by many to be the most despicable American of the 20th Century.
A Jew who worked so hard to execute the Rosenbergs.
A queer who worked so hard to deny rights to other queers.
The lawyer and brains behind Joe McCarthy and McCarthyism.

But on the bright side, he died a long painful death from AIDS.

Add to that this comment

Cohn aided Roger Stone in Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign in 1979–80. Cohn helped Stone arrange for John B. Anderson to get the nomination of the Liberal Party of New York,
a move that would help split the opposition to Reagan in the state.
Stone said Cohn gave him a suitcase that Stone avoided opening and, as
instructed by Cohn, dropped it off at the office of a lawyer influential
in Liberal Party circles. Reagan carried the state with 46 percent of
the vote. Speaking after the statute of limitations for bribery
had expired, Stone said, “I paid his law firm. Legal fees. I don’t know
what he did for the money, but whatever it was, the Liberal party
reached its right conclusion out of a matter of principle.”[35]

Federal investigations during the 1970s and 1980s charged Cohn three times with professional misconduct, including perjury and witness tampering.[2]
He was accused in New York of financial improprieties related to city
contracts and private investments. He was acquitted of all charges.[2] In 1986, a five-judge panel of the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court disbarred
Cohn for unethical and unprofessional conduct, including
misappropriation of clients’ funds, lying on a bar application, and
pressuring a client to amend his will. In this case in 1975, Cohn entered the hospital room of a dying and comatose Lewis Rosenstiel, the multi-millionaire founder of Schenley Industries,
forced a pen to his hand and lifted it to the will in an attempt to
make himself and Cathy Frank—Rosenstiel’s granddaughter—beneficiaries.
The resulting marks were determined in court to be indecipherable and in
no way a valid signature.[36]
