Dershowitz: Trump Needs To Aggressively Challenge Mueller

Special counsel is on a dubious fishing expedition, Harvard Law professor tells 'The Ingraham Angle'

Excerpt:

President Donald Trumpís attorneys are not being aggressive enough with the Justice Departmentís special counsel investigating Russian hacking into the 2016 presidential campaign, says one of the nationís top defense attorneys.

Robert Mueller is the special counsel investigating Russian hacking, and that involves looking into alleged ties between Trumpís campaign and the Russian government.

Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor for 50 years, told Laura Ingraham on Tuesday night's edition of "The Ingraham Angle" that Trump's personal attorneys should be reining in Mueller.

One example Dershowitz gave was Mueller's investigation of Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who advised Trump during the campaign and the transition. Kushner is being questioned on Israeli policy, the professor said.

"They should be in court challenging what Mueller has been doing," Dershowitz said on the Fox News show. "He is going so far beyond any possible scope of his investigation. For example, there were reports ... that they were investigating whether or not Jared Kushner tried to get the United States to change its policy toward Israel ó the resolution condemning Israel for occupying the Western Wall, the holiest place in Judaism. Let's assume that Jared Kushner did that. He should be praised for it. There is nothing criminal about that. What is Mueller doing investigating whether or not somebody during the transition was trying to influence American foreign policy to the benefit of the American people?"

Dershowitz said the Trump attorneys should be objecting to the scope of the investigation and challenging subpoenas.

Mueller was given a narrow scope, not a broad one, by the U.S. deputy attorney general, Dershowitz told Ingraham. And Dershowitz has long noted that "collusion" with a foreign state on campaign issues is not a crime.

"This is supposed to be a narrow investigation about whether or not there was illegal, unlawful collusion with Russia," said Dershowitz. "Collusion itself is not a crime. But now they are going after people for the equivalent of jaywalking. Did they sign the right form? Did they include this in the form? It's all an attempt to try to squeeze them into testifying against the Oval Office."

I admit, I've been surprised and impressed lately by Dershowitz's comments that show that despite being pretty far left, he respects the rule of law and isn't afraid to say so. He's been one of the few that has actually said things in support of the Republic and its laws lately.

Strange bedfellows - Alan Dershowitz and Mark Levin. . .
