Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz says Robert Mueller’s final report concluding there was no evidence of collusion vindicates President Trump because it proves this was a bogus narrative that was recklessly promoted by the anti-Trump media.
Moreover, Dershowitz told Fox News that the Mueller report is a “very, very, very bad day for CNN,” which relentlessly pushed the Russia-collusion hoax for the past two years despite a total lack of evidence.
Alan Dershowitz: Irresponsible CNN ‘Misinformed the Public’
Dershowitz — a lifelong liberal who voted for Hillary Clinton — says CNN and other media propagandists should be ashamed of themselves for trying to gaslight the public with a phony narrative simply because they don’t like Trump.
“This is a good day for the President. And it’s a very, very bad day for CNN. They should be hanging their heads in shame, when you think about how many people [on CNN] went out on a limb and predicted that there would be indictments for obstruction, there would be indictments for collusion, there would be indictments for this [and that].
“And for when they made it seem like this was an open-and-shut case and they misinformed the American public. They have to have some public accountability when they say things that turn out not to be true.
Look, I’ve been vindicated. I’ve been saying this from Day One. And I’ve been criticized and condemned for simply doing a legal analysis that I think any reasonable, objective, nonpartisan lawyer would have done, and would have come to the same conclusion that I came to — and essentially, the same conclusion made by the Attorney General.”

Dershowitz: Mueller Should Have Stemmed Obstruction Gossip
Dershowitz also slammed special counsel Robert Mueller, saying he should have spelled out a definitive conclusion on the obstruction-of-justice narrative instead of leaving it open-ended.
“I thought it was a cop-out for him to say there was not enough evidence to indict [on obstruction]. The job of the prosecutor is to decide, yes or no. Make a decision.
And then if you say yes, you indict. If you say no, you shut up. You don’t go on and say, ‘No, we’re not going to indict, but let me tell you all the evidence that might have led us to indict.’
That’s exactly what prosecutors shouldn’t do. That’s exactly what Comey did [on Hillary Clinton’s email investigation]. Shame on Mueller for not having the guts to come to a decision one way or the other. That’s what prosecutors are paid to do.
We, the American public, are entitled to a yes or no decision — not some law school essay on what arguments there are on both sides of this issue. That was a serious mistake.”
U.S. Attorney General: No Obstruction of Justice Finding
While Mueller was definitive when he stated that there was no evidence of collusion, he refused to take an explicit position on obstruction of justice.
Mueller said he was not indicting President Trump (because there was insufficient evidence), but he wasn’t exonerating him, either.
Earth to Unhinged Leftists: Give It Up!
Mueller left that to US Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Barr and Rosenstein reviewed Mueller’s findings and they concluded there was not a factual finding of obstruction of justice.
Democrats have seized on that to screech that it’s **possible** that President Trump **could have** obstructed justice. For the record, the lack of an indictment on that charge means there was insufficient evidence.
Yeah, it’s also **possible** that I could win a $3 billion lottery today while getting simultaneously struck by lightning and a falling meteorite.
Cry more, leftist snowflakes.
