Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz responded on Twitter to a host of criticisms over comments he made about the Russia probe, telling CNN host and former Hillary Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon "Shame on you" for suggesting he was being paid by President Donald Trump, Lawnewz.com reported Sunday.

The tweets came following an appearance by Dershowitz on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" on Saturday. He criticized special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into claims of collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

He also addressed the charge that Clinton rigged the Democratic primary in 2016. His argument was that just because someone did something wrong didn't make it a crime.

"The difference between outrage and criminality has to be kept sharp," he said. "Otherwise, anything you disagree with, if you're the people in power, you can go after your political enemies."

CNN's Fallon suggested Dershowitz had an ulterior motive for his statements about the Russia probe, stating "Dershowitz calling for the Mueller probe to be shut down is adequate basis to wonder whether Trump is paying him."

"How low can you get to suggest I'm being paid for saying what I've been saying for 50 years. Shame on you," Dershowitz shot back on Sunday.

Dershowitz defended his stance in another tweet, stating "The only fed statute that punishes 'collusion' to my knowledge is the antitrust law. You can't just make up crimes against Trump or Clinton."

Dershowitz also responded to a tweet by Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe, who called his argument "ridiculous." He told Tribe to "stop accusing each other of crimes."
