Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said one-time FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s email citing a “leak strategy" was not meant as a way to curb agency leaks.

"It's much more plausible that he was talking about a strategy designed to leak things selectively to the media to achieve the goal (Donald Trump's election loss) he set up for himself," Dershowitz told Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Tuesday.

He said any claim to the contrary “just doesn't pass the giggle test."

Strzok’s use of the term was revealed in texts exchanged between him and ex-FBI attorney Lisa Page.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, pointed out two texts in particular where Strzok and Page discuss the agency’s “leak strategy."

Dershowitz maintained ex-FBI Director James Comey “laundered” privileged information through a professor at Columbia University in order to leak it to the press.

And President Donald Trump echoed Dershowitz's comments on the leaking in a pair of tweets Tuesday night.

"You know who's at fault for this more than anyone else, Comey, because he leaked information and laundered it through a professor at Columbia Law School," Trump tweeted. "Shame on that professor, and shame on Comey. He snuck the information to a law professor who collaborated with him in . . ."

Trump continued: ". . . giving the information, and causing the appointment of a Special C without having the courage of his own convictions. . .' Alan Dershowitz @TuckerCarlson. In other words, the whole thing was illegally and very unfairly set up?"
