Dershowitz: Trump 100% Right There Never Should Have Been Special Counsel, No Probable Cause


Legal eagle Alan Dershowitz said on Tuesday's FOX & Friends that President Trump is "100% right" that there should have never been a special counsel appointed. Dershowitz said there was "no probable cause" when Mueller was appointed and argued that there should have been a non-partisan "special investigative commission" with subpoena power appointed by Congress.

ALAN DERSHOWITZ: First of all, the president's 100% right. There never should have been an appointment of special counsel here. There was no probable cause at that point to believe that crimes had been committed. I've seen no evidence to suggest that crimes have been committed by the president.

As I've said from day one, there should have been a special investigative commission, non-partisan appointed by Congress, with subpoena power to look into the role of Russia and trying to influence American elections and do something about preventing it in the future. Instead of starting out with finger-pointing and trying to criminalize political difference behind the closed doors of a grand jury. That's gotten us nowhere.

The president's absolutely right. The investigation never should have begun. And the question now is how does he deal with it. And I think what he's doing is he's playing good cop, bad cop. He has some of his lawyers cooperating with Mueller and some lawyers attacking Mueller because he wants to be ready to attack in the event there are any recommendations that are negative to the president.
