Skip to comments.Dershowitz: Mueller performing 'legal colonoscopy,' never should have been appointed

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz on Tuesday said Democrats are "fueling the speculation" around President Trump possibly firing special counsel Robert Mueller, adding that "there never should have been an appointment of special counsel."
"That would create a real problem on the Republican side of the aisle. I dont think hell fire him or should fire him," he added.
"America's Newsroom" anchor Sandra Smith pressed Dershowitz on Trump's weekend tweets.
"The president with his tweets over the weekend and Monday morning saying 'this is the ultimate witch hunt' adds fuel to the fire saying this investigation never should have began in the first place. So what is the strategy there? Why put those things out there?" asked Smith.
Dershowitz responded by saying there had been "no probable cause" of crimes committed by Trump and that meant a special counsel was not necessary.
"First of all, the president is 100 percent right. There never should have been an appointment of special counsel and there was no probable cause that crimes were committed," said Dershowitz. "Ive seen no credible evidence that crimes were committed by the president."

It doesn't get much better than this.
Dersh doesn’t realize that when the Dem-Commies take over, he’ll be the first to go.
Trumps Mueller tweets serve as a distraction to gin up the media and Dems.
They fall for it every time.
Robert Mueller knowingly fought to keep 4 FBI-framed innocents in prison for life.
He should be rotting in jail, not “investigating” a duly elected President for inarticulable charges.
In addition to no evidence of a crime, Trump has not even been accused of a crime.
Can one obstruct justice if no crime has been committed?
I can’t wait for the legal colonoscopy Obama/Hillary
I think there are a lot of people who are getting more angry at all who are sanctioning this witch hunt and at mueller. I know i am...the longer it goes on the worse it’s going to be for that bunch
Colonoscopies always find feces - so what else is new?
“Ive seen no credible evidence that crimes were committed by the president.”
But Ted Cruz said...
“I think its critical that this investigation be thorough.” - Ted Cruz
If no crime was committed what did Ted Cruz want a thorough investigation for? A fishing expedition?
I find it hard to believe that, not even the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court can stop this crap. Of course Roberts is probably a ‘deep stater’ too.
Don’t say that too loud. He’s napping.
Yes, I heard Mark Levin answer this very question. “Obstruction” is very slippery, and technically can be done, even if no underlying crime is found.
[”First of all, the president is 100 percent right. There never should have been an appointment of special counsel and there was no probable cause that crimes were committed,” said Dershowitz. “Ive seen no credible evidence that crimes were committed by the president.”]
Trump should get a congresscritter or the RNC to hire Dershowitz to file a suit to stop the witch hunt on the grounds that the appointment was illegal because the law says the appointment of a special counsel requires probable cause to believe a crime was committed.
“I find it hard to believe that, not even the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court can stop this crap.”
With the “investigation” now asking for Trump org financials, POTUS should file a suit against his own DOJ for harassment.
Yes, take his own DOJ to court.
