Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz criticized the tactics special counsel Robert Mueller is using in an attempt to charge those close to President Donald Trump, accusing Mueller of “creating crimes” rather than uncovering them during his appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“How common is this among prosecutors? This kind of behavior, trying to suborn someone into perjury,” Carlson asked.
