Trumped Up — How Criminalization of Our Political Differences Endangers Democracy
Alan Dershowitz with Jeffrey Toobin

“Lock her up!” “Lock him up!” These are the new slogans of our political discourse, says renowned legal scholar Alan Dershowitz.

When we disagree with a politician, it’s not enough for them just to be wrong — they must be criminals too. But isn’t it possible, for example, to defend President Trump’s civil liberties without defending his policies? Dershowitz thinks so, and he makes a passionate argument in his new book, Trumped Up, for renewing our focus on what unites us rather than what divides us. What if we start thinking about the opposition not as crooks, but as fellow Americans with whom we need to find common ground? Join Dershowitz and Cuomo, for a probing discussion.
