Alan Dershowitz admittedly is not the most popular guy within liberal circles, despite having those views. Dershowitz has become one of President Trump's biggest defenders, especially in this past failed impeachment push. It was nonsense. Dershowitz knew it was nonsense and oftentimes he called out Democrats for their overreach in their attacks against this White House. He was part of the president’s defense team. Dershowitz also described the discussion among top Department of Justice officials of invoking the 25th Amendment against Trump as nothing short of a coup attempt.

As a result, the liberal lawyer has admitted to being left off the invite list of many dinner parties he used to attend. He isn’t fazed. Now, in an interview with The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro, Dershowitz feels he was “conned” by Barack Obama and is now having buyer’s remorse for voting for him in 2012. Why? It’s not a shocker. Obama threw Israel under the bus, but more importantly, that action was seen as a green light for the anti-Semitic agents that infest the Democratic Party to make Jew-bashing the norm. Dershowitz said in private discussions, Obama promised to defend the Jewish State and the Middle East’s only democracy to the hilt—and did the exact opposite. Also, there is a rather interesting tidbit Dershowitz alleges concerning an FBI investigation request by Obama at the behest of lefty billionaire George Soros. The Blaze has more:

"I think President Obama, for whom I voted twice, and would now reconsider my second vote for him, he conned me," he said. "He called me into the Oval Office and he said 'I have Israel's back' and I didn't realize what he meant is to put a target on it and stab them," Dershowitz said, referring to former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power's abstention vote during a December 2016 vote condemning Israel.

"As he was leaving office, he ordered his representative to the U.N. to not veto a resolution which declared...the Western Wall, the holiest place in Judaism to be occupied territory," he continued.“It was outrageous," the Harvard Law School professor added while explaining how Obama's decision "legitimized" anti-Israel activism among the political center-left and the Democratic Party. 

It is not the first time that Dershowitz has blasted Obama. In February, Dershowitz claimed he had information that indicated Obama directed the FBI to investigate someone at the request of billionaire philanthropist and left-wing donor George Soros.

"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," Dershowitz claimed.

It’s just part of Dershowitz's hour-long interview with Shapiro:


The Soros claim is interesting since it shines a light on other deep state antics that occurred in the waning days of the Obama administration. The alleged surveillance operation against Trump campaign officials—Crossfire Hurricane—and the FISA spy warrants—none of this could be carried out without him knowing about it. Yes, tin foil hat material from the sound of it, but now we have Obama requesting FBI probes on folks because…George Soros said so—allegedly. Stay tuned.
