Dershowitz accuses Waters of “threats and intimidation” of jury says “I think it should be reversed on appeal” over the jury

Appearing on NewsmaxTV, Legal Icon Alan Dershowitz said while reacting to the Derek Chauvin Verdict “what was done to George Floyd by Officer Chauvin was inexcusable, morally. But the verdict is very questionable, because of the outside influences of people like Al Sharpton, and people like Maxine Waters.”

“Their threats and intimidation, and hanging the sword of Damocles over the jury, and basically saying if you don’t convict on the murder charge, on all the charges, the cities will burn, the country will be destroyed, seeped into the jury room because the judge made a terrible mistake by not sequestering the jury,” he continued. “So the judge himself said, this case may be reversed on appeal. And I think it might reversed on appeal. I think it should be reversed on appeal.”
