Harvard Professor and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz slammed the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) on “Fox & Friends” Monday for neglecting the fight for civil liberties and bowing to a political agenda.
“If this were Hillary Clinton they’d be raising money left and right defending Hillary Clinton’s right,” Dershowitz said.
“But now they’re raising money left and left, attacking Trump and putting the attack on Trump over defending our civil liberties. Why do you think I’m here all the time? Why do you think speaking in favor of man I voted against? Because the ACLU is dead in the water.”
“Who has ever heard of the ACLU coming in, justifying, defending but applauding a raid on a lawyer’s office which may very well have taken material that was lawyer-client,” he added.
Dershowitz said the ACLU has an extreme liberal bias and has forgotten it’s original mission of fighting for the rights of all Americans.
“It is absolutely political,” he concluded. “It’s a partisan hard-left political organization which no longer cares about the civil liberties of all Americans. It is agenda driven, money driven and anti-Trump driven.”
