Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz says special counsel is a “legal colonoscopy”

Alan Dershowitz

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said on Tuesday the Democrats “fueling the speculation” around President Trump possibly firing special counsel Robert Mueller, adding that “there never should have been an appointment of special counsel.”

“That would create a real problem on the Republican side of the aisle. I don’t think he’ll fire him or should fire him,” he added.

Alan Dershowitz appearing on Fox and Friends “America’s Newsroom was pressed by host Sandra Smith on President Trump’s recent tweets about the investigation.

“The president with his tweets over the weekend and Monday morning saying ‘this is the ultimate witch hunt’ adds fuel to the fire saying this investigation never should have began in the first place. So what is the strategy there? Why put those things out there?” asked Smith.

Dershowitz said  there had been “no probable cause” of crimes committed by Trump and that meant a special counsel was not necessary.

“First of all, the president is 100 percent right. There never should have been an appointment of special counsel and there was no probable cause that crimes were committed,” said Dershowitz. “I’ve seen no credible evidence that crimes were committed by the president.”

“The investigation should never have begun. The question is how does he deal with it. He’s playing good cop, bad cop. He has some lawyers cooperating and some attacking Mueller because he wants to be ready to attack in the event there are recommendations that are negative to the president.”

Dershowitz went on to describe the Mueller investigation as a “legal colonoscopy” that is looking at “every conceivable aspect” of Trump’s business life.

“Who knows how many people can survive that kind of an inquiry,” Dershowitz said. “I think on the public things being the Russia thing and obstruction of justice these are safe grounds, but on the material of his business dealings there’s no way to know.”

 

President Trump referred to the Alan Dershowitz interview in a series of tweets. The President seems to be getting more frustrated every day on the Mueller investigation which he has referred to in the past as a “witch hunt”. The White House has said once again the President has no intention of firing Mueller.
