Liberal professor Alan Dershowitz is a fair guy. You might not agree with him on many things and most conservatives don’t but the guy has good intentions and has established himself as trustworthy over the years.
That’s a big reason he’s so hated by his fellow liberals. He doesn’t blindly recite liberal talking points without thinking about it first. That makes him an unpopular guy in today’s Democratic Party.
This week, Dershowitz made liberals mad again with comments about Special Counsel Mueller.
From The Daily Caller:
“Well, I think Mueller is a zealot,” he said.
“I don’t think he cares whether he hurts Democrats or Republicans. But he’s a partisan and a zealot.”
Dershowitz also said, “Those of us in Boston don’t have such a high regard for Mueller because we remember this story. The government had to pay out tens of millions of dollars because Whitey Bulger, the notorious mass murderer, became a government informer against the mafia.”
That whole Whitey Bulger thing did not go well for Mueller and it’s strange the mainstream media is pretending that Mueller is this amazing guy with a fantastic record.
From The Hill:
Conservative talk show host Sean Hannity ripped special counsel Robert Mueller late Tuesday, saying his career has been “anything but impeccable.”
“Well, we’ve been doing some digging and we found some things you need to know about,” Hannity added.
Hannity made a reference to Mueller’s involvement in the Whitey Bulger case in Boston in the 1980s. Mueller handled the case, in which four men were wrongfully found guilty of murder, while he was an assistant U.S. attorney.
“Robert Mueller was the U.S. attorney in charge while these men were rotting in prison while certain agents in the FBI under Mueller covered up the truth,” Hannity said.
“They’ve never investigated him! They’re actually just lying! It’s their talking point!” he said.
“All of the information we’re telling you about is right there, right in front of the liberal mainstream media, in their faces, but they purposefully ignore it because their ‘destroy Trump’ agenda, that goes above all else.”
Hannity and Dershowitz are both right.
The media is pretending that Mueller is this noble guy and that’s simply not the case.
Isn’t it also interesting that the media keeps focusing on the fact that Mueller is a Republican as if that somehow means he will be fair to Trump? How much sense does that make? Plenty of Republicans hate Trump. Mueller being a Republican back when Bush was president means absolutely nothing. In fact, the Republican wing that Mueller is a part of has every reason to try and mess with Trump.
Here’s what Mueller was up to on Monday.
From Fox News:
The FBI raided President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen’s home, office and hotel room Monday to seize a collection of documents — a development that Trump slammed as “a disgrace.”
Federal agents reportedly obtained documents related to several issues, including his payments to adult-film star Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The New York Times was first to report the raid.
“Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan said in a statement Monday. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”
Yeah. That seems like a totally fair thing to do during an investigation about Russian collusion.
Dershowitz wasn’t thrilled about this development.
From Washington Examiner:
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz warned Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to raid President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office is an assault on the privileged lawyer-client relationship.
Dershowitz said on Fox that he believes the decision to raid Michael Cohen’s office would be a sign that Mueller is trying to turn Cohen against Trump.
“This may be an attempt to squeeze Cohen,” he said. “He’s the lawyer, he’s the guy who knows all the facts about Donald Trump, and to get him to turn against his client.”
