Harvard Professor Warns Of Constitutional Crisis

A professor from Harvard Law, Alan Dershowitz, was recently asked to share his expertise on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” During the interview he expressed a heavy concern of Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s investigation and how it is quickly leaning on the edge of an obstruction of justice.

Dershowitz predicted, “I worry that it’s toward obstruction of justice and that would create a constitutional crisis. If the president were to be charged with obstruction for simply exercising his constitutional authority, firing Comey, telling Comey not to investigate Flynn, those are all within the president’s constitutional authority. The other place it may be going is toward collusion. But collusion is not a crime. I would think that the special prosecutor should limit himself to matters that are criminal, and thusfar, I have not heard evidence to suggest that any crimes were committed in or near the Oval Office.”

He explained, “It leaves me worrying that what’s going to happen is that this investigation will end, not with a bang but a whimper, with some low-hanging fruit, people being indicted for things that aren’t directly related to the thrust of the investigation. And — or the great worry is that because he doesn’t have anything really, really substantial, he may go after obstruction of justice, which would create a constitutional crisis.”

“If I’m an innocent person, I’d like him to be the special prosecutor. If I’m guilty, I’d be very worried about that. But I don’t see any reason at this point for suggesting his removal.”

    This whole “investigation” is nothing more than a witch hunt brought about by a fake dossier paid for by Hillary and used as “insurance” to try and remove Trump in case Hillary lost. Arrest all insane democrat communists. The insane democrat communist party is a threat to every man, woman and child (especially child) in this nation and is public enemy number one!

    • Larry Hall

      William you are 100% right!! Mueller is wasting tons of our tax money, like Obama who gave tons of our money to appease the Iranians…down the drain…a waste….when there are so many disadvantaged citizens of the USA that need help & could have put that money to good use. Just look at our Native American brothers & sisters and people of Appalachia for starters.

      • Rosemary

        And money that should be used to give our military the most up to date protective gear.

      • William McNamara

        Damn right. I don’t mind paying my taxes to help fellow Americans. Obama, Clinton and every last insane democrat communist should be forced to repay every penny of the billions of dollars stolen and wasted by them. We need that money here to help our fellow citizens, not to enrich our enemies.

  • Rodney

    My concern is that they will use trickery to possibly get a lying under oath charge. Mueller maybe fishing for something bigger, but with none of that truly prosecutable, he will settle for tripping the npresident up with multiple question on the same subject hoping that framing the same question a dozen different way will trip catch the prez giving a different answer. By charging something well within a president constitutional authority would only undermine the constitution further and hurt OUR republic further.

    • Agostino

      The President should not let Mueller interview him. Trump’s verbiage is too “scattershot”
      Remember his claim he was wiretapped. Turned out he was not directly, but people working on his campaign, with whom he regularly spoke, were. So he was by default. At least refuse to talk under oath.

      • Rodney

        He may not have a choice. That is my worry too. Trump has a tendency to shoot from the hip and do so in a brutally honesty type of way. That is not good, or safe in a legal setting. One of two things he can do…take the 5th or have his lawyers set up strict guidelines for what can be asked. If it were I, my lawyers would arrange for the FBI to only ask certain questions and the interview to last no longer then an hour or two. The longer an interview last, the more opportunity they have to ask a question in many different ways in an attempt to “catch” a lie.

  • DaveyJ

    Get rid of Mueller, he is obviously a Democratic biased FBI bureaucrat who has abused his position for purely political reasons! The virtual,pardoning of HRC etc., makes ALL USA laws look retarded! Justice ONLY for conservatives, get out of jail cards for ALL liberals. Rural America is angry about this. The biggest cities though want no laws, nothing but massive aid and revenues, and the right to avoid any penalties for their treasonous actions. Bring in illegals for ONE reason, exploit their vote until all hell breaks loose! Then it won’t matter anyhow?

    • Rosemary

      You’re right Dave. Obama has relocated illegals in all the RED States and when they begin to vote those states will be blue. We MUST NOT let amnesty happen-ever!

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    This needs to end, now.
    The REAL guilty ones need to be investigated, convicted, and shot or hanged.
    George Soros is here to cause even more trouble, arrest him now!
    This witch hunt should stop! Strzok texted it himself when he stated there is
    no there there.

    • Larry Hall

      Right on! Susan….Soros is using his ill begotten money to cause disruption & trouble…put him on a slow boat to nowhere! Take all the funds (our taxes) away from Mueller & go after the real crimminals…the Clintons & their crimminal foundation!! Along the way it will uncover a big nest of rats, probably more Dumbocrats that are involved in real crimminal activity! Yea, the Swamp STINKS !!

      • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

        Amen to that Larry Hall!

      • terry b

        Hall: Are you talking about the KOCH BOYS? They are putting about 400 million of ill begotten money The Swamp still STINKS, we are all fools.

  • Walt wenger

    So, if they find some “low hanging fruit”, which are actual crimes committed, but not related to the intent of the investigation, why should they not be prosecuted? They are still crimes! I’m just sooooo tired of criminals’ getting off because law “enforcement” doesn’t want to do their jobs for whatever reason.

  • Bill Giles

    Like the times preceding the Revolutionary War, we are infested by crooked politicians who do not protect the rights of Americans, and who support special privileges for the rich politicians. The anti-liberty groups have always been here, and basically their views have never changed, destroy freedom of religion, no rights for the patriots, seize the weapons from those that oppose them, and blame them for the ills of the nation. Once again we have given the government the right to abuse our Constitution and pay them to do nothing constructive. And once again, The mission to protect our liberty is the sole responsibility of the patriots of this country, and our hope lies in the grace of God.

    What exactly were the mechanisms that the Russians used to persuade 63
    million to vote for Trump? Could they have been as effective as the
    colluding national media causing 65 million to vote for Clinton?

    The FBI,DOJ,CIA and other government agencies became so dishonest under the Obama Administration that the only thing left to do is conduct a really in depth investigation of these crooked agencies by other agencies like DEA,Customs,ATF,etc., and indite the dishonest employees convict them and put them in prison where they belong. That would end a lot of corruption in the government. Then all the agencies need to go after the crooked elected officials.

  • Greg Parks

    More than witch hunt. Dirty cops and dirty bosses at top are covering and try to protect their crimes: bribery, treason, malfeasance. Uraniumgate, deals with terrorist Islamic organizations, government establishment of religious training manuals for federal law enforcement IAW terrorist organizations. It just goes on and on.

  • PEACEONEARTH

    DONT THESE F.CKERS UNDERSTAND THAT IF THEY IMPEACH TRUMP THAT WOULD BE THE ABSOLUTE LAST STRAW?
