(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Even while the outcome of Donald Trump’s four indictments is still a huge question mark, famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz has predicted the former president will be convicted in at least some of them.
Dershowitz’s prediction came after a Georgia grand jury, and Fulton County’s DA Fani Willis indicted 19 defendants – including Donald Trump – for allegedly trying to overturn the 2020 election in the state.
This became Trump’s fourth Democrat-led indictment: since early April, he was indicted once by Manhattan’s DA Alvin Bragg and twice by the Biden Justice Department.
According to Dershowitz, a leftist who has routinely slammed the Democrats for going after Trump through the judicial system, “there will be some convictions” in Trump’s four criminal cases.
Moreover, the scholar predicted those would arrive before the 2024 presidential election, for which Trump remains the presumptive GOP nominee.
“I predict there’ll be some convictions,” Dershowitz told former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on the latter’s podcast “Bannon’s War Room,” as cited by The Hill.
“I think the strategy is to get bad convictions, but to get them fast in New York and Florida, in Washington, and in Fulton County,” said the legal expert who defended Trump in the president’s first impeachment trial in January 2020.
At the same time, Dershowitz forecasted that any convictions of Trump would be reversed but only after the 2024 presidential election.
“The whole ‘get Trump’ approach is to get him before the election, convict him before the election, and then he wins on appeal,” Dershowitz said.
He dwelled on the fact that, as Reuters reported, the Fulton County court’s website had posted a document showing severe charges against Trump even before the grand jury had issued the indictment. The paper was later removed “without explanation.”
“The fact that they were willing to put the indictment on the website before the grand jurors voted, proves something that any of us who have had experience in criminal law know – the grand jury is meaningless,” Dershowitz stated.
“They [the grand jury] rubber stamp something that the prosecutor put before them and the best evidence is the prosecutor was so confident, she was willing to put it on her website even before the vote took place,” he stressed.
Not only does former Trump lawyer Alan Dershowitz expect there to be some convictions in former President Trump’s four criminal cases, he thinks they will all take place before the 2024 presidential election. https://t.co/vz2ujQwfRu
