This week’s perjury accusations against key figures in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia show “the extraordinary weakness” of the Mueller probe. That’s according to Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School professor emeritus, who appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” on Friday night.
Dershowitz told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that this week’s Mueller drama shows that “the vast majority of crimes are things that happened after he became special counsel, not before.”
“The president should be concerned because he’s not going to get an objective, neutral, nuanced report from Mueller. Mueller is going to try to create a narrative that takes all these perjury and lying charges, and tries to weave them into something against the president,” Dershowitz warned.
“But I think this all shows the extraordinary weakness of the Mueller investigation,” Dershowitz added. “He was appointed to uncover crimes that had already occurred. Instead, he helped foment crimes by creating these perjury traps, having people fall into them, and then trying to flip them as witnesses.
Dershowitz also said it’s important that Mueller avoid releasing his final report publicly unless Trump’s legal team “has had an opportunity to review it, respond to it and issue their report simultaneously.”- READ MORE
