–Says He Would Now Reconsider His 2012 Vote For Him

Top Democratic lawyer and legal expert Alan Dershowitz just spoke out to slam Barack Obama, saying that he was “conned” by the former president.
In a new interview with Ben Shapiro that aired yesterday, Dershowitz accused Obama of betraying Israel and lying to him personally. He explained that Obama had promised him in a private meeting that he would defend Israel vigorously, but he proceeded to do the exact opposite.
“I think President Obama, for whom I voted twice, and would now reconsider my second vote for him, he conned me,” Dershowitz said, according to The Blaze. “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 was referring to former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power’s abstention vote during a vote condemning Israel back in December of 2016.
“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,” the Harvard Law professor added.
“It was outrageous,” Dershowitz continued, going on to describe how Obama’s decision “legitimized” anti-Israel activism within the political center-left and the Democratic Party as a whole.
This comes one month after Dershowitz claimed that he had evidence that Obama ordered the FBI to investigate someone at the request of billionaire liberal 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 alleged.
In his new interview with Shapiro, Dershowitz also blasted the “idiots” who misrepresented the arguments he made as to what constituted an “impeachable offense.”
“When I did my argument in front of the Senate, no one ever took it on based on the merits,” he explained. “If I had been on Hillary Clinton’s side, if she had been impeached, I’d be the greatest scholar in the history of constitutional law, according to the left. But they don’t like where I came down on this case, so they attacked me personally.”
Democrats love to pretend that Donald Trump is the first politician to ever tell a lie, but this just goes to show that Obama was lying like it was his job when it came time for him to try and get reelected. Good for Dershowitz for calling Obama out for this.
