Harvard Law Professor Says This Testimony Has Potential To Sink Manhattan DA’s Case

-

Is Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg‘s case against done for?

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz speculated DA Bragg's possible criminal case against the former president derailed after former federal prosecutor 's testimony.

Dershowitz appeared on Fox News on Tuesday night and told host Sean Hannity that “Bob Costello has changed this case dramatically.”

“I think that Bragg now only has two possible results from that. Number one, he can say, ‘alright, I'm going to try to make the case without Cohen.' He cannot use Cohen as a witness anymore. That would be unethical because of the testimony that Costello gave,” Dershowitz said. “Or he could say, ‘look, I have to drop the case.' He may not be able to make it without Cohen. But if he can't make it without Cohen, he can't make it, because no ethical prosecutor is allowed to put on as a witness somebody who has told the lies and has contradicted himself so much.”

Dershowitz said that Costello's testimony has, at the very least, slowed Bragg's movement toward any potential indictment, if not halted it completely.
