If you’d told us a few decades ago that we’d end up having to explain to Alan Dershowitz how the law works, we’d have been certain you had it backwards. He was once a leading legal expert. But in recent years he’s begun consistently pushing gibberish legal takes aimed at helping his corrupt friends.
