Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz called out the ACLU on “Hannity” Monday night for being silent after the raid on President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.
“This could be an attempt to squeeze Cohen. He’s the lawyer. He’s the guy who knows all the facts about Donald Trump,” Dershowitz said. “They can burst into the office, grab all the computers and then give it to another FBI agent and say, you’re the firewall. We want you now to read all these confidential communications. Tell us which ones we can get and which ones we can’t get.”
Dershowitz said if Hillary Clinton or a liberal were being raided, the ACLU would speak up and defend them, but because Cohen works for Trump, they’ve purposely remained silent.
“If this were the shoe on the other foot. If this were Hillary Clinton being investigated and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America jumping up and down,” Dershowitz said.
“The deafening silence of the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion in the lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling,” he added.
