“It should have been the call when Mueller was appointed,” Professor Dershowitz, law professor emeritus at Harvard University said on TV Sunday morning. “We should have never seen the appointment of a special counsel as the 1st step.”
US AG Sessions revealed last week that federal prosecutor John Huber is working to weigh the need for a special counsel.
“Is there evidence of criminal conduct?” Professor Dershowitz asked. “Never confuse political sins with federal crimes. And think this is going about it the right way, calibrated step by step.
“The answer to 1 bad appointment of a special counsel is not a 2nd bad appointment of a special counsel.”
Professor Dershowitz said he is “against the criminalization of political differences,” regardless of which party is going after the other. He also reiterated he had called for a nonpartisan commission to look into all sides of the 2016 election, which he said “has real problems.”
Mr. Huber’s work might well expedite the investigation into potential FISA abuses in the Justice Department and the Top level at the FBI, as the appointment of a special counsel adds lots of time and money to the process.
US AG Sessions is working to restore credibility to the process.
Have a terrific week.
