Dershowitz: don’t understand why the FBI Peter Strzok still has his job
Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz on house Republican efforts to documents from the Ministry of justice and the fallout from FBI agent Peter Strzok of the texts.
Apparently, Martha’s Vineyard is a safe space.
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said last week that his defense of President Donald Trump led the constitutional rights that he was “shunned” by his own friends on a high-end seasonal destination.
The famous lawyer, complained of the efforts to eject him from his social life on Martha’s Vineyard in the midst of his outspoken criticism of the Special Counsel, to Robert Mueller’s investigation into the alleged collusion with Russia.
“So, you avoided me and tried to ban me from your social life on Martha’s Vineyard.”

In an op-ed for The hill, Dershowitz, a frequent guest on Fox News, said that, although he was politically a liberal Democrat, voted for Hillary Clinton in addition to the contribution “to swallow handsome” its campaign, his defence of civil liberties, which could benefit Trump is too much for his social circle.
“But that is not good enough for some of my old friends on Martha’s Vineyard. For them, it is enough that what I said help on the Constitution could trump. You are, therefore, avoided me and tried to ban me from your social life on Martha’s Vineyard.”
“One of them, a scientist from a prestigious University, told the people that he was not invited to any dinner or party I. He and others have called for “trigger warnings” so that you can be sure that they are “safe spaces”, where you will not meet me or my ideas. Others have said that you do not continue contributions to organizations that sponsor my talks,” he added.
Dershowitz went on to compare his situation with McCarthyism in the 1950s, when many innocent people were perceived as sympathy for Communist ideas and were the subject of job, dismissal and blacklisting.
“I never thought I’d see McCarthyism come to Martha’s Vineyard, but I have. I wonder if the professor refuses to hear anything I have to say, also treats his students as well,” he continued. “He would listen to, like a student who is actively supporting Trump? What is a, supported by his civil liberties?”

However, Dershowitz remains defiant in the midst of the efforts to ostracize, him from the public life. “I’m not going to change, to outlaw my views as a result of these experiments is to me, but there are some who remain silent for fear of being ostracized,” he wrote.
“Silence is not my style. Cowardice is not my philosophy. I did not speak to the intention, when I talk to agree with the Republicans, and I intend to, if I ever do with Democrats. Now I speak in disagreement with Maxine Waters. You — like those who avoid me, which is on Martha’s Vineyard — part of the problem instead of the solution,” he added.
