Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday that the Supreme Court would rule against any conviction regarding charges related to January 6.
Dershowitz shared the prediction on Fox News' "Hannity" on Tuesday.

"They’ll have a very hard time proving it. District of Columbia, so 90 percent of the jury pool voted against him. So, they may actually get a conviction from a D.C. jury but will survive appellate review and review in the Supreme Court? I do not think so," he said.
“I think he may lose in the states court of appeals for the D.C. Circuit, but I think he will probably win appeals the United States Supreme Court if they grant review and they should grant review," he added.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) argued that the timing of the latest charges is political.
“The American people understand that Joe Biden and his Administration are engulfed in one of the biggest political corruption scandals of all time. It is no coincidence that the day after a federal judge throws out Hunter Biden’s corrupt, sweetheart plea bargain, Biden’s weaponized DOJ continues its witchhunt against President Trump," she released in a statement.
"Our Republic is in peril, our justice system is broken. House Republicans will continue our work to investigate the Biden crime family and leave no stone unturned in order to deliver accountability on behalf of the American people," she added.
The new charges have not stopped Trump's popularity among voters. He continues to hold a large lead over other GOP contenders.
The legal battles have appeared to even help Trump. His poll numbers increased following his previous charges related to classified documents found in his Florida home.
The outcome of the case is unclear, but one expert believes the Supreme Court will rule in favor of Trump if it comes to it.
