Famed civil rights attorney Alan Dershowitz endorsed former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as a candidate for secretary of state for President-elect Donald Trump.

"I've known Rudy for 43 years," the Harvard Law School professor emeritus told Megyn Kelly on Fox News on Wednesday. "There's no one tougher, no one smarter.

"Whether he would be diplomatic is anybody's guess," he added, but he certainly would be Trump's guy. I think he is very much like Donald Trump."

Dershowitz ripped arguments Giuliani lacked experience in foreign relations and national security, calling them "somewhat inconsistent.

"He doesn't have enough foreign experience, yet too much foreign business," he posed. "You can't have it both ways."

The former professor then cited Giuliani's years as associate deputy attorney general in the Gerald Ford White House and as U.S. attorney in New York.

"He had plenty of relations with foreign countries," he said. "In his business, he has plenty of relations with foreign countries.

"The president gets his man. The president doesn't get a Supreme Court justice, but he gets his cabinet.

"If Rudy gets nominated," Dershowitz predicted, "Democrats will make a fuss about it — but they don't have enough to stop it."
