Dershowitz Says 'Evidence Is Overwhelming' Against DA Fani Willis

Famed attorney and Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz believes that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis should be on trial for her actions in the case against former President Donald Trump and his codefendants.

He said that the District Attorney committed the “worst crimes that I’ve seen prosecutors commit,” Newsmax reported.

“She ought to be on trial for perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury, witness tampering,” he said on the Newsmax show “Newsline.” “The evidence is overwhelming that she committed perjury, including technical scientific evidence and several witnesses.”

He spoke about Nathan Wade, the former lead prosecutor in the case and Willis’ former lover, and how he took her on expensive vacations, which she claims to have paid back in cash without presenting any evidence.

“Essentially, she got kickbacks for appointing this highly unqualified person to head the prosecution,” he said. “I sure hope the appellate court takes the case and throws her out of the case and recommends that there be a criminal investigation … we have to have an independent prosecutor of some kind looking into what is an open and shut case of perjury.”

He also shredded Manhattan Judge Juan Merchan, who expanded a gag order against the former president to include the judge’s daughter, whose firm works for the campaigns of President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Rep. Adam Schiff.

“He is a judge ruling to protect his own daughter,” he said. “Talk about a conflict of interest. The law is very clear if the judge, for example, is sitting on a case where his daughter could benefit financially, of course, the judge would have to disclose that and recuse himself. And of course, the defendant would have the right to point that out.”

The attorney also cautioned the president to be careful with how he handles the war between Israel and Hamas if he wants to compete in Florida.

“If you think Florida is in play, then you better think hard about your attitude toward Israel and not worry so much about what’s going on in Minnesota and Michigan and Wisconsin,” the attorney said.

“If you become perceived as anti-Israel, you don’t have a shot in hell of carrying the very large Jewish and pro-Israel vote in Florida, and that is a cautionary tale that you want to take for granted,” he said.
