Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz didn’t hold back when he tore into Attorney General Merrick Garland for twisting and bending the law to protect President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Dershowitz, a renowned legal scholar, didn’t mince his words when he made his case clear to the folks over at the Daily Caller News Foundation.
You see, when Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel, he conveniently forgot to mention a little thing called § 600.3(c) of the Code of Federal Regulations. And let me tell you, folks, this regulation clearly states that the special counsel must be selected from outside the United States government. It’s the law! Congress even authorized these regulations under 5 U.S.C. 301, 509, 510, 515-519. So, it’s not just some made-up rule that Garland can conveniently ignore.
JUST IN: Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz SLAMS Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland for evading the law to protect Joe Biden and his criminal son Hunter.
If they were Republicans they would be locked up in federal prison for life!https://t.co/k0FwwXppDR

Now, you would expect the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, the illustrious attorney general, to actually follow the law, right? Well, apparently not. Garland seems to think he can pick and choose which rules apply to him. But Dershowitz isn’t buying it. He argues that if Garland believes there’s some exception to this requirement, he better explain himself. And boy, does he owe us an explanation!
Dershowitz highlights the importance of this requirement. The special counsel is supposed to be independent of the current government, not just another lackey who can be fired by the president. But Garland and his defenders claim that he merely “skirted” the law, not violated it. Skirted? Skirted! What kind of legal dance is that? You can’t just dance around the law when it suits your fancy.
Dershowitz isn’t just asking tough questions, he’s demanding answers. He believes that Garland should be called before Congress to explain why he thinks he’s above the law. And let me tell you, folks, he’s absolutely right. We the people deserve to know why our attorney general thinks he can ignore a federal regulation that directly limits his authority. Garland can’t hide behind his silence – he needs to face the music and answer for his actions.
But Dershowitz doesn’t stop there. He proposes a solution to this legal conundrum. He suggests splitting the Justice Department into two separate units – one political, serving the president, and the other non-partisan, with prosecutors who can only be removed with the consent of Congress. And wouldn’t you know it, folks, this just might be the answer. If we had a system like that in place, maybe we wouldn’t need these so-called “special counsels” that just seem to cause more trouble than they’re worth.
In the end, folks, Dershowitz isn’t playing political games. He genuinely wants to hold our government officials accountable, regardless of their party affiliation. He had high hopes for Garland, thinking he would be a fair and neutral attorney general. But now, he’s disappointed. And you know what? I’m disappointed too. Our leaders should know better – they shouldn’t place themselves above the law. It’s time for some real transparency and accountability in our justice system. And it’s up to us, the American people, to demand it.
