Dershowitz: Trump-Russia Probe Becoming “Too Political,” “Criminalizing Political Differences”


Monday on FOX & Friends, Alan Dershowitz said special counsel Robert Mueller has given the other side the “ability to claim prejudice” with the hiring of lawyers who have a history of donating to Democrats.

DERSHOWITZ: This is becoming very political, when you have the Justice Department itself being on both sides, prosecuting the president – possibly – and also serving as defense witnesses for the president. This is just becoming too political on both sides.

We have to stop criminalizing political differences. The criminal law should be reserved for obvious violations of the criminal law that exists, not for making political points against your political enemies on both sides.
