In a heated debate Sunday morning on ABC News, renowned legal scholar Alan Dershowitz summed up special counsel Robert Mueller’s unfavorable investigation against President Donald Trump with eight simple words:
“They are all long-term Republicans who hated Trump!” he exclaimed during his debate with the network’s chief legal analyst, Dan Abrams, citing the political beliefs of both Mueller and his protege, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey.
And that, Dershowitz argued, is why it’s only fair when the president blasts the investigation as a veritable “witch hunt,” just as he gad earlier that morning.
Dershowitz issued the observation while trying to argue that the Justice Department “should have appointed a non-partisan, independent commission like 9/11″ (versus Mueller) to investigate alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Why? Because Mueller is clearly compromised. As an example, the famed legal scholar pointed to what Comey wrote about Mueller in his recently published memoir.
“[H]e and Comey are so close — their history is so close together that when you read Comey’s book and you see what he has said, you really wonder about the objectivity of the investigation,” Dershowitz noted.
Last year Fox News host Sean Hannity described the friendship between Mueller and Comey as being equivalent to the friendship between a father and son.
The special counselor’s investigation into Trump has likewise been tarnished a thousand times over by scandal after scandal after scandal.
For a Republican, Mueller has hired a suspicious number of Democrats to serve on his legal team. One of his hires, FBI agent Peter Strzok, had to eventually be removed from the team after it was learned he had exchanged anti-Trump texts with another agent during the election.
“There was never a need for a Special Counsel — Special Counsel have targets, they’re looking to try to find crimes against people,” Dershowitz continued Sunday. “That doesn’t serve the interest of America. America’s interest is served by finding out the truth, the facts, changing the law and making sure it never happens again.”
While many might argue that Dershowitz had a point, both Abrams and ABC News host George Stephanopoulos disagreed
“It sounds like you’re in league with President Trump on impeaching the credibility at this point of the Special Counsel,” the host said, echoing the same rhetoric used by every liberal aghast at the thought of anyone calling Mueller’s shattered credibility into question.
Newsflash to liberals: Robert Mueller is not God, OK. He’s just a man … a very flawed man, at that!
