Fox host Sean Hannity asked the former law professor. new judgment In Willis' case, the presiding judge declined to immediately decide whether Willis and other witnesses would be called to testify later this week.

Dershowitz said during his sworn testimony that he saw “two issues” in the Willis case: whether Willis and Wade had any “financial interest” and whether either of them had any relationship.

“There are two questions. One is, did the district attorney or her boyfriend have a financial interest in it? And the judge will allow the investigation. But the more important question is, did the district attorney or her boyfriend have a financial interest in it? Either or both of them committed perjury or conspired to commit perjury when they allegedly swore under oath that they had a sexual relationship for the first time after they began working for her.'' Witts said.

“If that's not true, and there are clearly witnesses willing to testify under oath that it's not true, then there may ultimately be a criminal trial, but that's not the case with Donald Trump. No. The couple may face a criminal trial for perjury. The question is: What is the scope of the judge's questioning? Will he allow an investigation into the authenticity of the affidavit? I hope.”

“We cannot allow the district attorney and the special district attorney to get away with perjury if they have actually committed perjury. Otherwise, the record shows that they did not commit perjury, that they had a platonic relationship; It should become clear that somehow a sexual relationship developed after he started working for her. That seems very unlikely,” Dershowitz said.
