Harvard law professor and author Alan Dershowitz argued Monday that former FBI director and current special counsel Robert Mueller should be investigated for his role in protecting a notorious FBI informant — and that civil liberties are at stake.

In a column for the Washington Examiner, Dershowitz decries that “any criticism or even skepticism regarding Mueller’s history is seen as motivated by a desire to help” President Donald Trump.

Dershowitz argues that “four innocent people were framed by the FBI to protect mass murdering gangsters who were working as FBI informers while they were killing innocent people” during the time Mueller was director of the FBI.

An FBI agent — who’s now in prison — was tipping off Boston gangster Whitey Bulger about who might testify against him, ensuring their slayings, Dershowitz explained; the agent also tipped off Bulger so he could escape and stay on the lam.

“All civil libertarians should want the truth about this sordid episode, and Mueller’s possible role in it, regardless of its impact, if any, on the Trump investigation,” Dershowitz wrote, adding Mueller should welcome the probe too.

“But these ‘Get Trump At Any Cost’ partisans have rejected my call for an investigation, out of fear that it may turn up information that might tarnish the image of the special counsel who is investigating Trump,” he wrote.

Dershowitz assailed that in today’s charged political atmosphere, “a civil libertarian is a conservative whose candidate is being investigated, while a law-and-order type is a liberal who wants to see Trump charged or impeached.”

“I am a liberal who voted against Trump, but who insists that his civil liberties must be respected for all of our sake,” he declared.
