Alan Dershowitz: "I Don't See A Crime" With Don Jr. Meeting


On Tuesday, Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Miranda Khan on "America Talks Live," that there is no "crime" in Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting last year with a Russian lawyer:

ALAN DERSHOWITZ: I mean that's the hard question. He's now hired a very experienced lawyer, who I've worked with in the past, a very good lawyer. That lawyer will be looking into these issues obviously. I don't see any crime at this point in time. I think that even if there was coordination. Even if the worst case scenario as far as we know now, is the Russians get in touch with Trump Jr and say, 'we have some dirt on Hillary Clinton, come we'll give it to you' and he goes and gets the information. That's what the New York Times did with the Pentagon Papers, that's what the Washington Post did and many other newspaper did with information with Snowden and Manning. You are allowed legally to use material that was obtained illegally as long as you had nothing to do with the illegal nature of obtaining the information, so at the moment I see no legal jeopardy for Trump Jr.
