Dershowitz: Corrupt Mueller probe should be ‘the death knell’ for special counsels (Video)

By Jon Dougherty

Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who wrote the introduction for the final Mueller Report that the former special counsel turned into the Justice Department following the “Russian collusion” witch hunt designed to depose POTUS Donald Trump, said Friday it’s time for Congress to get rid of the position altogether.

In an appearance on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham program, Dershowitz agreed with Attorney General William Barr’s statement that Mueller “should have come to a conclusion” regarding whether or not the president actually obstructed justice — a preposterous allegation in the first place, given his intense cooperation with Mueller’s probe.

Barr “was 100 percent right,” Dershowitz said. “Mueller should have come to a conclusion. I think if he had come to a conclusion, it would have been there was no obstruction of justice, but he was probably pressured by his staff members” — most all of whom were documented donors to Hillary Clinton and Democrats — “not to come to that conclusion.”

“I think the only thing Barr should have said that he didn’t say is, there should no longer ever be any special counsel,” Dershowitz continued. “The Mueller investigation puts the final nail in the coffin of special counsels, special prosecutors.”

Dershowitz went onto say that everything Mueller and his team of tainted prosecutors did could have been better handled by the AG and the Justice Department — there was never any need for an independent or special counsel.

He also lashed out at Mueller’s claim that no matter what, he couldn’t have indicted the president anyway per the Justice Department’s guidelines.’


“Well then, what was his investigation all about?” Dershowitz asked rhetorically, noting that Mueller’s team was never interested in finding out about collusion as much as they were focused on ‘getting’ President Trump, as evidenced by the way the went after his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and others close to him such as onetime private lawyer Michael Cohen.

“There was nothing against President Trump. There was no illegal collusion, there was no collusion of any kind with the Russians, and the investigation should have ended the day that decision was made,” the Harvard prof continued.

“But it continued on and on and on, with collateral crimes, many of which were not even committed, and others of which” had nothing at all to do with Mueller’s initial publicized mandate.

Of the crimes committed, “they could have been investigated by regular [DoJ] prosecutors,” Dershowitz said, “so I think we’re seeing the death knell of the special counsel’s office.”

At the end of this madness, this country needs a serious review of all of our deep state federal agencies with all of the alphabet letters. And I mean a review of all procedures. Also FISA court needs to be temporarily shut down and re-drafted with extremely specific oversight.

This whole “Special Counsel” was corrupt from start to finish. It had no reason to exist other than to take down a duly elected president. I hope all this shame, sets a precedent, so it doesn’t happen again, to any other President in the future.

@Carson: I prefer a military tribunal to a special counsel for these deep state/Democrat/rino traitors who attacked our Constitution and president with their coverup/coup attempt.

But Comrade Douchewitz loved Saint Mueller the Immaculate just two weeks ago?

Obama, Holder, Lynch, Clinton, Kerry, Comey, Mueller, Brennan and Clapper are the executive leadership of the deep state. All the post-911 security moves were meant for the safeguarding America but Obama and crew spied on whomever they identified as a political enemy. If Trump had lost the election he would have been indicted for siding with Russia, having beaten Clinton the risk of having their plot discovered called for a special counsel to protect them and sidetrack President Trump. That bell you heard means Nixon just got his wings!

Even in the face of blatant proof the Democrats will never admit what they did. So…its hard to base future policy upon their actions. It’s like catching a kindergarten class misbehaving. They all point to each other and deny the waste basket that’s on fire in the middle of the classroom.

I wish that Dershowitz had been selected for AG instead of Sessions. Dershowitz seems to be the only one who understand the law and does got get into the politics that was evident with Muller and his team of Thump Haters starting with Muller.

President Trump made a huge mistake when he said he really did not want to prosecute Hillary. They interpreted this as a sign of weakness and total immunity for their past and future behaviors.
He should create a special investigator on Hillary and another on obama.
I know there is a unwritten rule that the current President not investigate his predecessor, but you know the next Democrat to rule the White House will have an endless investigation of then Ex-president Trump. Having al total lack of any honor is what they do.
