Dershowitz: Derek Chauvin Conviction Should Be Reversed on Appeal

Renowned defense attorney and Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday that the conviction of former Minneapolis, Minnesota, police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd should be overturned on appeal because of the public intimidation of the jury and the judge’s refusal to sequester the jury.

Washington Post Gives Cindy Axne Four Pinocchios for False Response on Democrat Court-Packing Bill

Rep. Cindy Axne (D-IA) regurgitated a false accusation during a radio show interview in which Democrats in the House have “no jurisdiction” over the efforts to pack the Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices from nine to thirteen. This is clearly false, as the full House and Senate could vote on the bill introduced by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) as establishment media outlet the Washington Post pointed out in a fact-check, giving the Congresswoman Four Pinocchios.
