[VIDEO] Alan Dershowitz was appearing on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” and the discussions were about the Russian collusion investigation and how it was morphing into an obstruction of justice issue. It is now obvious that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has developed no evidence to support a collusion case. Collusion, by the way, is not a crime. The case is now becoming a hunt for some sort of obstruction of justice. Can the President do that when only doing his job? Listen to the answers.
As Written and Reported By Frank Camp for the Daily Wire:
Appearing on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” renowned legal scholar Alan Dershowitz called into question the collusion investigation into President Trump.
Referencing remarks made by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), co-host Pete Hegseth asked if an obstruction case is being built against the president, and that if such a case is being built, would it be “credible.”
I think the answer is yes, and no. I think that the special counsel is trying to build an obstruction case – that’s why he’s interviewing people who are witnesses to the alleged obstruction. But there’s no credible case because under the Constitution, a president cannot be charged for merely exercising his constitutional authority under Article II.
What Senator Blumenthal referred to is cases where a president destroys evidence – there’s no evidence of that. That’s what president Nixon did. Nixon was charged with obstruction of justice for ordering his underlings to lie to the FBI, paying hush money, and destroying evidence. President Clinton was charged with obstruction for allegedly lying to the grand jury [and] at a deposition. But if the president simply exercised his constitutional authority, namely firing an underling – which he’s entitled to do; telling the FBI not to investigate a particular person – which he is entitled to do; pardoning people – which he hasn’t done yet; thinking about maybe whether [we] should fire the special counsel – that’s not obstruction of justice under the Constitution………
