Alan Dershowitz says if the FBI raided Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer the ACLU would be having a fit

ACLU

Famed Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz says if the FBI raided Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer the “ACLU would be on every network jumping up and down, there is a deafening silence from the ACLU and civil libertarians.”

Dershowitz appearing with Sean Hannity goes on to say that the silence from the ACLU and civil libertarians is “really appalling.” “Look, this is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations. I deal with clients all the time. I tell them on my word of honor that what you tell me is sacrosanct. And now they say, just based on probable cause, even though there was cooperation with Cohen, they can burst into the office, grab all the computers, and then give it to another FBI agent, and say, ‘You’re the firewall. We want you now to read all these confidential communications, tell us which ones we can get and which ones we can’t get.’ You know, if this were — the shoe were on the other foot, if this were Hillary Clinton being investigated, and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America jumping up and down. The deafening silence of the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into the lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling.”

Dershowitz went on to say that “when lawyers cooperate in an investigation they have an expectation that they will be treated decently. Cohen cooperated and what did he get for it? He got his office, his home raided. This sends a powerful message that cooperation is not going to be rewarded by Mueller, it is not going to be rewarded by the Southern district and I think what you will see is far less cooperation.”

For his part President Trump has already indicated he is less likely to sit down for an interview with Muller after the raid on Michael Cohen. It is clear that the Muller investigation has become a witch hunt. And the President is right it is a total “disgrace.”
