Not only is Donald Trump on trial in these cases, but the American system of justice is on trial, not only in America but around the world.
Justice Alito was wrong in asserting that Congress lacks the power to compel the justices to enact and implement rules regulating their ethics.
Many of those fighting for today's Ukraine also seem to be fighting for a Ukrainian past that is shameful.
Its findings should be studied by all Americans who care about applying a single standard of justice, regardless of party or personality.
Equally important to what has been said and done at Israeli demonstrations is what has not been said and done.
None of the 34 charges cites any alleged victim of Trump's crimes. They are the personification of victimless crimes.
Previous prosecutors decided not to indict Trump based on the facts available to them. Has new evidence been discovered?
No democracy has had more transforming elections and more successful demonstrations than Israel. The recent turnabout in the Netanyahu government's plan to rush through a one-sided judicial "reform" is just the latest example of Israel's raucous democracy at work.
Companies that make vote counting machines are suing Fox and others for defaming them. I'm advising clients in several lawsuits involving voting machines, and I'm a frequent contributor to some of these media. So, I am not unbiased. Nor am I unbiased regarding the First Amendment, which I believe is endangered by these lawsuits.
We are experiencing the death of nuanced discourse in many parts of the world today. Instead, we see black or white debate between two sides, each insisting that they are right and the other wrong in every respect.
Alec Baldwin is a rich and powerful celebrity. The law must be applied fairly to him, as it would be to others.

In the early 1960s, law firms were operated on a pseudo-apartheid basis: there were firms that didn't hire Jewish lawyers; there were Jewish firms that hired both Jewish and non-Jewish lawyers; and mixed firms, which hired a few token Jewish applicants.
Academic standards in general have been consistently lowered over the past several decades. That should come as no surprise, because standards for admission to colleges and universities have been lowered as well. To the extent that meritocracy is replaced by other factors, such as identity politics, the standards will continue to diminish.
Why then do some people—even some decent people—refuse to recognize the Armenian genocide? Turkish authorities have done everything in their power to pressure individuals and countries not to acknowledge this genocide.
Volodymyr Zelensky has performed a truly great service on behalf of the Ukrainian people. But he has in the recent past mendaciously denied the role of Ukrainian people in the Holocaust.
There has been scant debate on the actual legal merits or demerits of Judge Cannon's decision.
As I predicted when Democrats sought to impeach then-President Donald Trump on unconstitutional grounds, conservative Republicans are planning to try the same unconstitutional gambit if and when they take control of the House of Representatives. It has now been reported that efforts are underway to begin this process.
Under the First Amendment, there is a strong presumption in favor of transparency and public availability of important documents. This presumption is rebuttable upon a showing of good cause. The showing cannot be a general claim that investigations should be protected; it must specifically point out names, words, and sentences whose unsealing would pose a significant danger.
The administration of justice is not a game.
The Biden administration is making a dangerous argument that threatens executive privilege.
