4:05 PM ET – Alan Dershowitz, professor, and civil liberties attorney has been explaining for weeks now, that regardless of party we should be very afraid of the miscarriage of justice that we have seen take place with regard to the Trump administration. This is a precedent we do not want to set.

Famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz on Sunday wouldn’t say whether he had been asked to join President Trump’s legal team, adding as a Democrat his only concern was whether Trump’s civil liberties and due process rights were being infringed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

“I do not want to be his lawyer, I don’t want to give him legal advice,” Dershowitz said during an interview on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

4:30 PM ET – Colonel Oliver North, The host of War Stories on Fox News has a unique take on the attacks on Syria’s chemical attacks on its own people, the strikes that the
US, France, and England took against their military sites and the long-term future of the conflict:

French President Emmanuel Macron claimed in a television interview that France has convinced President Trump that it is “necessary” to remain in Syria “long-term,” according to the AFP.

Why this matters: If Trump follows through on this alleged commitment to Macron, it would be one of the biggest and most abrupt foreign policy reversals in his presidency. Trump has demanded for months — over the objections of his national security team — that his administration withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.

“Ten days ago, President Trump was saying the United States of America had a duty to disengage from Syria,” said Macron, according to Agence France-Presse White House correspondent Jérôme Cartillier.

“We convinced him it was necessary to stay. I assure you, we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long-term.”

5:05 PM ET – Sara Carter, Investigative Journalist and Fox News Contributor and David Schoen, Civil Rights and Criminal Defense Attorney, take a close look at the Cohen investigation. Exactly what is the ultimate goal of the FBI and Mueller? And last night’s interview with George Stephanopoulos, what did we learn? Absolutely nothing. Just two Clinton sycophants sitting down for an hour to talk about how awesome they both are.
