Dershowitz Says Trump Made Profound Error, Not Treasonable

Renowned attorney Alan Dershowitz believes President Donald Trump made a profound error during his press conference with Vladimir Putin, but added it is not treasonable.

“I think the president made a serious mistake in publicly disagreeing — in a self-serving way — with the conclusions of all of our intelligence agencies,” Dershowitz told Law&Crime’s Lis Wiehl on her podcast “Pursuit of Justice.”

“Disagreeing with the conclusions was not necessarily a mistake, but doing it in a foreign country, at a press conference with Putin was a mistake and I think wrong.”

Trump has since claimed he misspoke when he sided with Putin over U.S. intelligence on whether Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

Former CIA director John Brennan called Trump’s remarks at the Helsinki summit on Monday “nothing short of treasonous.”

But Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus and Newsmax contributor, dubbed it “treason-lite” and said it was unlikely to result in impeachment.
