Alan Dershowitz tells Charlie Kirk he believes Trump will be convicted—but verdict will be overturned on appeal

Charlie Kirk recently had lawyer Alan Dershowitz on The Charlie Kirk show and asked him if there was any chance the lawyer would join former President Trump’s legal team amid the charges that the former president falsified business records. Kirk kicked off the segment by suggesting that Dershowitz could get Trump’s case dismissed “very quickly,” but this was apparently not the lawyer’s opinion. Dershowitz started off by saying that he has a policy of “only representing somebody once and so I’m not a lawyer, but I would certainly be happy to participate in the court of public opinion.” 

Dershowitz went on to suggest that Trump’s case will likely not be dismissed, saying that “I don’t think that if you had the best lawyers in the history of the world, Abraham Lincoln and John Marshall, a New York City judge would dismiss this case because that New York City judge’s life would be over.” 

The lawyer said that the judge would be mocked if he or she were to dismiss Trump. Dershowitz continued by saying that he does think Trump will be convicted by “your jury who voted for Bragg.” However, he added that the case would “be reversed on appeal,” and it “will never be affirmed all the way up to the Supreme Court.”

The lawyer’s comments come after Trump has been charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records, which carries with it a maximum jail sentence of 136 years. However, that did not stop Trump from speaking at Mar-a-Lago after his arraignment, saying that the “fake case was brought only to interfere with the upcoming 2024 election.”
