Alan Dershowitz comments on the Mueller investigation on FNC's 'Sunday Morning Futures' with Maria Bartiromo:
He said if he were in charge appointing a special counsel would not have been the "first step" of the investigation. He also said he opposes appointing a second one: "The answer to having one bad appointment of a special counsel is not to have another bad appointment of a special counsel."
ALAN DERSHOWITZ: We should never have seen the appointment of a special counsel as the first step. First, it should have been done at the Justice Department, an inspector general, maybe office of professional responsibility... then let us see if there is evidence of criminal conduct.
We have to make sure we never confuse political sins with federal crimes.
This is going about it the right way, in a calibrated, step by step way.
Look, the answer to having one bad appointment of a special counsel is not to have another bad appointment of a special counsel. I'm against the criminalization of political differences.
