Fair-minded Democrats are few and far between these days. It’s been an all-out feeding frenzy by them against President Trump since day one. Alan Dershowitz has been the exception to the leftists who want to destroy President Trump. He sticks to the facts and calls ’em as he sees ’em. He did exactly that today when he called out Robert Mueller on his “partisan” statement to the media.
“Until today, I have defended Robert Mueller against accusations that he is a partisan. … I have now changed my mind. …Mueller has revealed his partisan bias.”
Alan Dershowitz wrote a stunning piece for The Hill in which he slammed Mueller. He described how Mueller went about delivering his statement to the media and then had this to say about the former Special Counsel:
“Until today, I have defended Mueller against the accusations that he is a partisan. I did not believe that he personally favored either the Democrats or the Republicans, or had a point of view on whether President Trump should be impeached. But I have now changed my mind. By putting his thumb, indeed his elbow, on the scale of justice in favor of impeachment based on obstruction of justice, Mueller has revealed his partisan bias. He also has distorted the critical role of a prosecutor in our justice system.”
Dershowitz goes on for several paragraphs to pick apart Mueller’s statement and then closes with an admonishment that prosecutors should never say or do anything to help “one party or the other”…His final sentence was a dagger to the heart: “Shame on Mueller for abusing his position of trust…”
“No prosecutor should ever say or do anything for the purpose of helping one party or the other. I cannot imagine a plausible reason why Mueller went beyond his report and gratuitously suggested that President Trump might be guilty, except to help Democrats in Congress and to encourage impeachment talk and action.”
“Shame on Mueller for abusing his position of trust and for allowing himself to be used for such partisan advantage.”
