Alan Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: Let Govt Function Again

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

Dragging on the investigations about President Donald Trump and the Department of Justice probe that cleared him of conspiring with the Russians is a bad idea, Attorney Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV.

Dershowitz was on Monday's "Newsmax Now" to discuss the news that special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation concluded Trump did not work with Russia to win the 2016 election.

"I don't approve of the effort to try to retaliate against bad investigations with more bad investigations," Dershowitz said. "I think we should have mutual disarmament. Put the investigations behind us. Let the government govern, let the legislature legislate, let the president act presidential.

"I think enough investigations. I'm not in favor of continued investigations on either side."

Democrats have vowed to continue digging into Trump's past despite Mueller clearing him of conspiracy. Mueller, a former FBI director, could not definitively rule whether Trump obstructed justice by firing James Comey as FBI director nearly two years ago.

Some Republicans now want to probe the Russia probe to determine whether the FISA Court warrants obtained by the Department of Justice under former President Barack Obama were justified.

Dershowitz said he thinks there should be an investigation related to the FISA warrants.

"The one area where I think investigation may be warranted is whether or not Justice Department officials misled the FISA Court by submitting the dossier without fully alerting them to the sources of the dossier and the lack of credibility of the person who wrote it," he said.

"And the FISA Court might consider having contempt of court proceedings to determine whether or not they were deliberately misled because misleading a court, particularly a court like the FISA Court, is really very dangerous to democracy."

Later during the interview, Dershowitz declared Trump "completely vindicated and exonerated."

"The only question is obstruction of justice, we have to wait and see what the evidence is," he said. "I suspect I know what it is, and it will be bogus. You can't indict a president or charge a president for firing somebody. That's within his constitutional authority."
