Dershowitz stated that this is not a way for justice to be served and hinted at the fact that the justice systems approach needs to be modified.
Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz attacked special counsel Robert Mueller for the way in which he is prosecuting former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort while on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday night.
“It’s very simple. His crime is being associated with Donald Trump. Don’t listen to me on this, listen to Judge Ellis. The judge who is presiding over the case. The judge ruled and said, they are not interested in Manafort. Mueller is not interested in Manafort. They are just trying to get him convicted so they can squeeze him,” Dershowitz stated. “If you squeeze a witness not only does the witness sing, but sometimes according to the judge, the witness composes.”
“If he hadn’t been associated with the Trump campaign he’d be out in New York or wherever doing his business,” he continued.
Carlson then asked how what Mueller was doing was different that what the mafia does.
