Dershowitz states he has proof Obama used the FBI for Soros's personal benefit

On Sunday, Breitbart's Joel Pollak sat down for an interview with famed Harvard Law professor and criminal defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz.  During the interview, Dershowitz explicitly stated that George Soros asked Obama to have the FBI investigate someone for him and that Obama acceded to that request.  He further stated that he had documentary proof that will be released during the course of an upcoming lawsuit.

During the interview, Dershowitz spoke about the way in which CNN mangled his argument during the Senate hearings on Trump's impeachment, something he said justified a lawsuit; the fact that Roger Stone deserves a new trial because the jury foreperson lied when she stated that she had no strong political bias and knew nothing about Stone himself; and that he would leave the Democrat party if Bernie Sanders won the Democrat primary.

Regarding this last point, Dershowitz's beef with Bernie is Bernie's hostility to Israel.  What Dershowitz doesn't acknowledge is that all the Democrat candidates and, indeed, the whole Democrat party are hostile to Israel.  Whether it's Bernie or someone else, today's Democrat party is the home of Linda Sarsour, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, etc., and not Alan Dershowitz.

The most fascinating thing Dershowitz said came up when he and Pollak were discussing the left's outrage that Trump appears to be having a say in how Attorney General Bill Barr is handling the Roger Stone sentencing.  This outrage most recently culminated in a letter from 1,100 former DOJ attorneys and officers stating that Barr must resign from his office simply because his decisions coincide with Trump's tweets.

According to Dershowitz, presidents have had a say in the administration of federal justice practically since Congress created the office of the attorney general via the Judiciary Act of 1789:

And let's be very clear about the constitutionality. The president could make a decision to really control the Justice Department. He could decide who to prosecute and who not to prosecute. He shouldn't do it. It hasn't been done since Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson did do it. We've seen this throughout our history.

The interference didn't end with Jefferson.  It's been going on for centuries.  Dershowitz pointed out that "[t]here was a lot of White House control of the Justice Department during the Kennedy administration and I don't think we saw very many liberal professors arguing against that."

All presidents have engaged with the Justice Department, although past presidents were sneakier, or they got a pass for being leftists:

We've seen this kind of White House influence on the Justice Department virtually in every Justice Department. The difference is this president is much more overt about it, he tweets about it. President Obama whispered to the Justice Department about it. And I don't think these thousand Justice Department officials would pass the "shoe on the other foot" test. Maybe some of them would but a good many of them wouldn't.

The real shocker was when Dershowitz honed in on one specific event during the Obama administration:

I have some information as well about the Obama administration — which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point, but I'm not prepared to disclose it now — about how President Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros, who was a close ally of his.

Just to make sure he understood what Dershowitz had said, Pollak asked, "You said that George Soros asked Barack Obama to have his Justice Department investigate somebody?"

Dershowitz affirmed his claim and stated that he had the evidence to prove it:

That's going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future, yeah. *** I have in my possession the actual 302 form which documents this issue and it will at the right time come out, but I'm not free to disclose it now because it's a case that's not yet been filed.

People have long suspected that George Soros wasn't just aligned with Obama's policies, but, in fact, exerted control over Obama's conduct.  This seems to bear it out.
