Liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz is calling out Michael Cohen for claims he made regarding President Trump's supposed "hush money" payment.

According to The Daily Wire:

Always ready to set the record straight, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz is poking holes in former Trump attorney Michael Cohen's claims that the then-candidate illegally instructed him to pay hush money to his alleged paramours for the campaign.

In an exclusive interview with ABC on Friday, Michael Cohen not only told George Stephanopoulos that President Trump instructed him to pay off his mistresses but also knew it was the "wrong" thing to do.

...

Speaking with Fox News on Friday, Alan Dershowitz picked apart Cohen's case, asserting that he does not seem to understand the difference between "wrong" and "illegal."

"Reasonable people can disagree about whether it's wrong to pay hush money to somebody to stop them from disclosing alleged improprieties sexually. Reasonable people can say that's wrong or that's right," Dershowitz said. "It's not illegal."

Dershowitz also pointed out that presidential candidates can spend as much as they like on their campaign without it being illegal. 

He went on to say at the worst Trump ordered Cohen to pay hush money to help his campaign which would be sleazy but not illegal.
