Dershowitz: Indictment of Trump aide is illegal, done to ‘make political points’ | WND | Truth2Freedom’s Blog

Alan Dershowitz, the famed legal mind who is the Felix Frankfurter professor of law, emeritus, at Harvard Law School, is charging the Joe Biden Department of Justice with acting illegally in indicting and arresting Peter Navarro, a former adviser to President Trump.

At the Gatestone Institute, where he is the Jack Roth Charitable Foundation Fellow, he explained, “The indictment of Peter Navarro for contempt of Congress violates several provisions of the Constitution and should be dismissed.”

Navarro was targeted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan committee assigned to “investigate” the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol.

It’s partisan because Pelosi refused to seat GOP members the minority party nominated, and instead picked a couple of Republicans who long have adamantly opposed Trump and his agenda, his accomplishments, and his ideas.

Dershowitz, explaining Navarro “has a strong claim of executive privilege that should be decided by the courts,” pointed out, “Either the Justice Department or Congress should seek a judicial ruling that Navarro’s claim of executive privilege is invalid. ”

He explained, “If the court rules that it is invalid and orders him to respond to the congressional subpoena, Navarro should have an opportunity to comply. If he fails to comply with a judicial order, he can either be indicted or held in contempt by the court. But absent a judicial order, he cannot lawfully be indicted for invoking executive privilege and refusing to reveal arguably privileged material just because a committee of Congress, controlled by Democrats, has voted that he should.”

He explained it isn’t enough to allow him to appeal after the fact, because information that has been revealed cannot later be erased.

His decision to claim privilege is not a crime, Dershowitz explained. “It is the constitutionally correct action.”

He explained the constitutional violations include due process, fair warning and executive privilege.

“It also violates the separation of powers, under which the courts have the authority to resolve conflicts between the legislative and executive branches over claims of executive privilege in response to legislative subpoenas.”

He warned, “The Biden Justice Department knows the law and it should not be acting lawlessly to make political points.”

“I do not support the events of January 6, 2021, as do many Americans. Congress has the right to investigate them and issue appropriate subpoenas, but they must comply with the Constitution,” he explained to Democrats running Congress.

“Legitimate ends do not justify illegitimate means, and issuing an indictment of a former executive decision without first obtaining a judicial order is an illegitimate tactic.”

He said the proper course for now is for Navarro to move to dismiss the indictment and the court to grant that.

He called for fairness and equal justice.

“The Bible admonishes judges not to ‘recognize faces.’ That command is the origin of the blindfolded statue of Lady Justice. But in our age of pervasive partisanship, too many judges peek out their blindfolds and rule differently based on the faces and political affiliations of the litigants. Every ruling and decision – whether by a judge or Justice Department official – must pass the ‘shoe on the other foot test,’” he said.

“It must be the same regardless of face, name, race, ethnicity, religion, gender or political affiliation. So the question must be asked: would this Justice Department have indicted a Democratic former executive official who claimed executive privilege in response to a Congressional subpoena?”

He suggested that question may be answered soon … “if the Republicans gain control of either house later this year and start issuing subpoenas for officials in the Biden White House.”

He said the Democrats’ actions under Pelosi’s direction also are a threat to ordinary citizens.

“Consider a citizen who refuses to answer congressional questions about conversations with her priest or medical doctor — or a lawyer who refuses to disclose confidential information he received from a client. If this indictment is allowed to stand, these citizens too could be indicted before their claims of privilege were adjudicated by a court. A dangerous precedent indeed — to the rule of law, the Constitution and the rights of all Americans,” he said.

US Congressman Demands Capitol Police Release Tapes From Jan 6 or He’ll Release Them Himself – Nwo Report

https://nworeport.me/2022/05/22/us-congressman-demands-capitol-police-release-tapes-from-jan-6-or-hell-release-them-himself/

Posted BY: Jesse Martin

A United States Congressman has demanded that the Capitol Police release tapes from January 6th over “demonstrably false” allegations

Representative Rodney Davis (R-IL.) is demanding that Capitol Police release the footage from January 5th, 2021 over “demonstrably false” claims by the Jan. 6th panel against Republican Congressman Barry Loudermilk (GA.)

The panel accused Representative Loudermilk of leading “reconnaissance tours” at the Capitol on January 5th, 2021 in preparation for the protests the following day.

Representative Davis is standing up against the bogus claims for his fellow Congressmen.

From the Epoch Times:

This charge, Davis said, “is demonstrably false. As you are aware, [Administration] Committee Minority staff have reviewed all footage in question and have confirmed no ‘reconnaissance tours’ occurred.”

Trending: The New World Order Prepares Their Final Attack

Davis also foresaw and rejected claims that the tapes he requested would pose a security risk if released to the public, noting that the same tapes have already been made public in some capacity.

“Any argument that this footage represents sensitive ‘security information’ was destroyed once the Board provided copies to Democrat impeachment managers for public dissemination or it otherwise became available to the public,” Davis wrote.

Davis concludes by stating that if the board refuses to release the footage, he will exercise his authority under 2 U.S.C. $ 1979 to release the footage himself.

Loudermilk is one of many congressmen to have been smeared by the January 6th panel and or the liberal media as “insurrectionists” for their support of President Donald Trump or for their decrying of the stolen election.

Rep. Davis is convinced that releasing the footage for the public to see would clear Loudermilk, who himself stated that he only met with a constituent family “with young children” at the House Office Building on January 5th.

January 6th has become the rally call against all patriots among radical left Democrats and RINOs, as they continue to persecute anyone they perceive as a political threat using bogus claims of insurrection.

Capitol “riot”: 80 ‘Suspicious Actors’ and ‘Material Witnesses’ Under Scrutiny by Jan. 6 Defense Attorneys | The Wentworth Report

Capitol “riot”: 80 ‘Suspicious Actors’ and ‘Material Witnesses’ Under Scrutiny by Jan. 6 Defense Attorneys. By Joseph Hanneman.

Defense attorneys are seeking to identify and investigate 80 suspicious actors and material witnesses, some of whom allegedly ran an entrapment operation against the Oath Keepers on January 6, 2021, and committed crimes including the removal of security fencing, breaching police lines, attacking officers, and inciting crowds to storm into the Capitol.

Legal scrutiny, better late than never:

In a motion … filed after 11 p.m. on May 5 in federal court in Washington, attorney Brad Geyer listed 80 people, some of whom he said could be government agents or provocateurs. The people are seen on video operating in a coordinated fashion across the Capitol grounds on January 6, the attorney alleged. … Video evidence the defense gained access to only recently shows that some of the 80 people attacked police, other people, and members of the Oath Keepers; entered the Capitol on the west side “with apparent permission or acquiescence of government actors”; opened the Columbus Doors on the east side of the Capitol “from the inside, possibly with even further assistance of government actors”; and deployed “sophisticated crowd-behavior techniques,” orienting themselves between protesters and police. Suspicious actors are seen on video “associating, conferring and traveling with others, engaging in behavior to confuse law enforcement through body masking, facial masking, clothing changes, and disorienting skirmishing behavior,” Geyer wrote. The suspected people used earpieces, satellite phones, and other communication equipment. “Often it appears that these communications devices do not seem to be affected by capacity restriction or sophisticated jamming that was evident throughout the day,” Geyer wrote. “If it can be established that these SAs [suspicious actors] were government agents, this could amount to entrapment defense that will dispose of this 7th indictment prior to trial,” the motion said. … Geyer suggested the Oath Keepers who entered the Capitol Rotunda through the famous Columbus Doors atop the east stairs were entrapped by suspicious actors who boxed them in and attempted to push them into the Capitol after the doors were opened from the inside. … Video shot by a French television crew, and surveillance footage under court seal raise “significant concerns of informants, influencers, and inciters whose activities are now clearly observable,” said a footnote in the motion. …

Columbus doors:

Videos referenced in Geyer’s motion show that the 17-foot-high, 20,000-pound bronze Columbus Doors were closed when the crowd gathered at the bottom of the steps and then breached the police line. When the crowd reached the top, the fortress-like doors were still shut. It’s not clear when, or why, the doors were opened.


That significant revelation backs up arguments made in January by attorney Jonathon Moseley, who told prosecutors his client, Kelly Meggs, could not have breached the doors because they are controlled from inside the Capitol. “The outer doors cast from solid bronze would require a bazooka, an artillery shell, or C4 military-grade explosives to breach,” Moseley wrote in a letter to federal prosecutors. “That of course did not happen. You would sooner break into a bank vault than to break the bronze outer Columbus Doors.” … The two inner doors are secured by magnetic locks and cannot be opened from the outside. Twice within an hour on January 6, suspicious actors opened the inner doors from inside the Rotunda, surveillance video shows. According to Geyer’s filing, a large number of suspicious actors controlled the scene directly in front of the Columbus Doors after the giant doors were opened. They chased away regular protesters with pepper spray and moved other actors into place. The Oath Keepers, each of whom was shadowed by at least one suspicious actor, were positioned and coaxed toward the entrance. Six to eight suspicious actors attacked police with mace in preparation to breach the entrance, Geyer wrote. …

The Jan 6 Capitol riot is increasingly looking like a modern Reichstag fire. Coming after the Russia hoax (which turned out to be completely made up by the Clinton camp, but which dominated politics for three years and hamstrung Trump) and the Governor Whitmer kidnapping acquittals (because the incident was just FBI entrapment), a Capitol riot organized by the FBI would appear to be just standard operating procedure. Remember, the sole effect of the riot that day was to cancel the two hour debate on election shenanigans scheduled for that date. The election college voting on the President went ahead as scheduled. And of course since then we have the whole MAGA-are-terrorists vibe that the Democrats are trying on.

EXCLUSIVE: Rudy Giuliani Asks For Live Coverage of His Scheduled Testimony on National TV – But Jan 6 Committee Declines — Sham Jan. 6 Committee Lacks Transparency — The Gateway Pundit | Truth2Freedom’s Blog

Rudy Giuliani speaks at the Ellipse on January 6, 2021.

Former New York City Mayor and Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani is scheduled to “testify” before the House Jan. 6 Committee on Friday.

A source close to Giuliani told The Gateway Pundit that Rudy agreed to testify as long as it is recorded or broadcast live.

As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, the radicals on the January 6 Committee issued subpoenas to Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell, and Boris Epshteyn last January and claimed they “publicly promoted unsupported claims about the 2020 election and participated in attempts to disrupt or delay the certification of election results.”

A judge vindicated Rudy of any involvement in violence on Jan 6 by a district judge appointed by Obama.

Rudy Giuliani agreed to testify if his appearance is broadcast on live TV or if he is able to record his testimony.

Giuliani says he wants to be transparent, but he lacks trust in Adam Schiff and other committee members because Adam Schiff lied to the American public about the Russian hoax for so long.

Rudy says, “I want to cooperate. I’ve always done the right thing.”

A source close to the Giuliani camp said, “Why should America’s Mayor be subjected to angry, misguided politically corrupt people? They would probably doctor his testimonies, transcripts, or his words. They are so untrustworthy, if polled today the committee may be lower than the frail Joe Biden.”

There have been credible reports Antifa was involved as well as the FBI, and the American people want a thorough and honest investigation. Has Nancy Pelosi been questioned? Did President Trump offer her the National guard and she refused? What about the videos of staff encouraging people to come into the Capitol?

Rudy Giuliani was scheduled to testify but the committee lacks transparency.

Man Told by an Officer That He Could Enter the Capitol on Jan. 6 Now Faces 20 Years in Prison | The Wentworth Report

Man Told by an Officer That He Could Enter the Capitol on Jan. 6 Now Faces 20 Years in Prison. By Robert Spencer.

On Jan. 6, 2021, a protestor, 40-year-old Brady Knowlton, says that an officer at the Capitol told “You can go in, as long as you don’t break anything.” At 2:35 p.m., Knowlton did, entering through the Upper West Terrace doors. He looked around inside the building, walked through the Rotunda, lobby, and Senate chamber gallery, obeyed the officer’s injunction not to break anything, and left the building at 2:53 p.m.


For that, Knowlton now faces twenty years in prison in Old Joe Biden’s vengeful banana republic. … According to the charges filed against him in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Knowlton “did unlawfully and knowingly enter and remain in a restricted building and grounds.” … If Knowlton’s contention that a police officer said he could go in is true, it vitiates all these charges, and Knowlton’s claim is certainly corroborated by photographic and video evidence of cops at the Capitol opening gates, holding the doors open for protestors, and reports that police even posed for selfies with protestors.

Cops opened gates for protestors

And opened doors

Also, when the FBI raided Knowlton’s home, they found no evidence whatsoever “concerning the breach and unlawful entry” of the Capitol, or “of any conspiracy, planning, or preparation,” or “maps or diagrams” of the Capitol, or of any “materials, devices, or tools” that Knowlton might have planned to use to get inside. So why is the government pursuing Knowlton with such ferocity? The answer to that is clear: he is being set up to be a fall guy, to validate the Left’s hysterical and counterfactual claims about Jan. 6 by being made to play the role of the “insurrectionist” who was determined to destroy “our democracy” and install Trump as a dictator. Imagine a country that imprisons peaceful protestors on false charges of participating in an attempt to overthrow the government, as part of efforts to discredit and ultimately criminalize all opposition to the ruling party’s agenda. … Compare the treatment of Knowlton and the other Jan. 6 scapegoats to the treatment of Quintez Brown, the Black Lives Matter activist who recently shot at Louisville mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg. Journalist Miranda Devine noted that Brown was “portrayed sympathetically by the media and immediately bailed out of jail by his Black Lives Matter comrades, who crowdfunded the $100,000 cost.” Devine added that Brown was “a celebrated gun control advocate, anointed as a rising star by the Obama Foundation, he was an honored guest on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show. He was granted a biweekly opinion column in the Louisville Courier-Journal to spew boilerplate leftist, race-based, anti-cop sentiment.” Brown had, Devine says, “BLM privilege.” Indeed. In America, we no longer have a single justice system for all people, regardless of race, or of power, or privilege, or the protected victimhood status they may have among the Leftist intelligentsia. We no longer have a justice system that is indifferent to and independent of political pressure. The politically and culturally dominant Left is not content with the massive power and influence it wields now; it is determined to silence all opposition and destroy it utterly. We have seen the totalitarian impulse of the far-Left play out in revolutionary France, as well as in the Soviet Union, Communist China, Democratic Kampuchea, Fidel Castro’s Cuba, and a host of other places. In every one, the judiciary serves as a tool of the political elites, who wield it in order to prosecute, persecute, and obliterate their opposition. American schools used to teach that our system had a series of built-in checks and balances that would prevent that kind of tyranny from developing. But now the schools focus on teaching that the Founding Fathers were evil slaveowners and the system they created is just another vehicle of white privilege to be dismantled. By the time the fanatics they have indoctrinated get around to dismantling that system altogether, doing so will be just a formality. The Left has long since hollowed it out and rendered its safeguards meaningless. The persecution of Brady Knowlton and the other Jan. 6 defendants proves that.

Will an American Putin emerge? The US is on that road.
