Professor Lawrence Tribe was appalled by Alan D's "unhinged" attack on Richard Painter

and Robert Mueller.

Good for Painter -- he wouldn't back down on making the point that D wasn't being truthful about Bob Mueller. (D was referring to a specific rightwing fake news story about Mueller.)

Note: Painter is the (former) Republican. Dersh is the (so-called) Democrat. Who do you like better?





Laurence Tribe
✔@tribelaw

I know both @AlanDersh and Richard Painter. Alan was totally out of line in attacking @RWPUSA on MSNBC as “unAmerican.” His denunciation of Mueller shocked me. Sorry to have to say it, but this unhinged assault on Painter leaves me aghast.

17. Dersh was lying about Mueller, smearing him with a fake news story

about a certain mobster prosecution. The judge involved has written an article about why Dersh's story about Mueller is false. (See post #13 below.)

Dersh has been pals with Kushner ever since Kushner was at Harvard and Dersh was faculty advisor to a small Jewish org that Kushner was president of.

24. Maybe Dershowitz has male menopause, or has he always been a salty emo that doesn't check sources?

Male hormone replacement therapy isn't for every one, perhaps he is too old for it.

5. No contest on who I like better

Dershowitz is a sleazy liar who will say anything to promote his view.

Painter is a good man that I have some basic differences with on what is best for the country, but I do not doubt his sincerity, honesty, or ethics (All things Dershowitz apparently do not have).

12. I think the connection started with Dersh's decades-long friendship with Kushner

(Kushner was President of a small Chabbad house on Harvard's campus while Dersh was faculty advisor there), and continued through mutual links to the corrupt Netanyahu, and continues to this day at Mar a Lago, which Dersh visits with friends.

13. Hamlette here's the backstory with Dershowitz and Mueller/Whitey Bulger/Boston

 

"Smearing Robert Mueller"

"Sean Hannity and others are blaming the special counsel for one of the F.B.I.’s worst scandals. But there is no evidence to back up their charges."

Great photo!

[link:?quality=90&auto=webp|


The judge who presided over the trial against the govt speaks out.

"By Nancy Gertner"

Ms. Gertner is a retired federal judge.

The retired judge who wrote the piece now teaches at Harvard along with the repulsive Dershowitz and iirc, this is not the first time she has called him out.

It was Israel that got Dershititz's panties in a bunch,

snip"

"You have no right to go on national television and say things that are false about Robert Mueller,” Painter continued. “It’s not about you.”


“You say I know nothing about Israel,” Dershowitz replied. “You condemned me for that.”

“This has nothing to do with Israel,” Painter shot back. “You lied about Robert Mueller. This has nothing to do with Israel. This has to do with you’re assaulting the reputation of Robert Mueller, a good American.”

26. Dersh's ego out of control. Pundit said he should stay in the classroom.

He's out of touch. I agree. I like painter a lot.
