Pressure on lawyers to withdraw from President Donald Trump’s election challenges is “pure and simple McCarthyism,” according to legal expert Alan Dershowitz on Newsmax TV.

“I got an email this morning asking me to sign a petition calling for their disbarment,” Dershowitz told Monday’s “American Agenda.” “There are tremendous pressures on the lawyers to withdraw from the case. This is pure and simple McCarthyism.
