Dershowitz: Trump's Lawyer Will Drop Dossier Lawsuit

(Fox News' "The Story")

By    |   Wednesday, 10 January 2018 07:48 PM

Alan Dershowitz said Wednesday it is likely President Donald Trump's lawyer will withdraw a lawsuit he filed against two news organizations for leaking the contents of a scandalous dossier about him compiled by a British spy.

"He's going to withdraw the case," Dershowitz told Fox News' "The Story" with Martha MacCallum.

"The first person they will call at the deposition will be President Trump, and they'll ask President Trump under oath about the dossier. And that's the last thing a lawyer wants to get his client in trouble over."

Dershowitz, an attorney and author, noted he is not even convinced Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen had the proper authorization from his client to even file the suit.

"I'm not sure whether Cohen got the authorization to file this lawsuit," Dershowitz said. "The lawsuit will, in the end, I believe, be withdrawn because I don't think that Cohen's gonna want to allow the critical witness to this lawsuit, the president of the United States, to sit for hours and hours, perhaps days and days, of depositions.

"Civil lawsuits are two-edged swords. When you bring them, you subject yourself and witnesses to the legal equivalent of a colonoscopy."
