Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz says he has proof "which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point," that former President Barack Obama "personally asked" the FBI to investigate a person on behalf of billionaire megadonor George Soros.
Dershowitz did not say during his interview with Breitbart News on Sirius XM who the target of the investigation may have been, commenting that he's "not prepared to disclose it now."
Dershowitz added that he has, in his possession, "the actual 302 (witness report) form" documenting the issue, and "it will at the right time come out, but I'm not free to disclose it now because it's a case that's not yet been filed."
His claims came in connection with questions concerning Attorney General Bill Barr's comments that President Donald Trump's tweets about ongoing Justice Department matters make it "impossible" to do his job.
Dershowitz said there has been a great deal of White House control over the Justice Department, including during late President John F. Kennedy's administration, but "I don't' think we saw very many liberal professors arguing against that."
The difference is that Trump is "much more overt" about his influence on the DOJ with his tweets and Obama, who "whispered to the Justice Department."
Trump could also, under the Constitution, "make a decision to really control the Justice Department," said Dershowitz, including deciding who to prosecute or not, but added that he "shouldn't do it."
"It hasn't been done since Thomas Jefferson," he said. "Thomas Jefferson did do it. We've seen this throughout our history."
