FBI Director James Comey should have been fired because he "lost his credibility" not only with President Donald Trump, but also with Democrats and Republicans, civil right attorney Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday.

"He should have resigned," the Harvard Law professor emeritus told Don Lemon on CNN. "He lost his credibility.

"A lot of this is his fault. He should have looked in the mirror and said to himself, 'I am not trusted by Democrats, Republicans, by the American public' and should have resigned."

Dershowitz added that Trump should not have made the decision "while he's under an investigation" on possible Russian ties by his campaign aides and that it was critical that Comey's successor is "a man or woman of great integrity."

He also called for an independent commission for the Moscow probe, "not a special prosecutor, not done by Congress but by people appointed by Congress.

"They can then decide whether to appoint a special prosecutor.

"Comey is a unique situation. He may have changed the results of an election," Dershowitz later added, referring to the Hillary Clinton email probe.

"He could not be the head."
