Dershowitz Claims He Was Banned By CNN Because He Was ‘Too Fair’ on Russia Probe, Demands Apology

Speaking with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Monday, Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz crowed that he has been right all along about the Mueller probe.

He also called for CNN to “fess up” and apologize.

“If Robert Mueller had said he saw that there wasn’t obstruction of justice in the act of firing, then at that point, in the investigation would determine perhaps what the intent was and if there was, but as you rightly point out, constitutionally the president had every right to make the moves he made, correct?” MacCallum asked.

“Sure. Compared to Nixon,” Dershowitz replied, noting Nixon destroyed evidence personally and paid hush money to potential witnesses.

“If the president’s acts are lawful — I made this argument from day one and Attorney General Barr picked up my argument when he wrote his letter before he was appointed Attorney general. Look, I have been right from day one and almost all the other pundits and professors have just been dead wrong. It’s time for them to fess up, it’s time for CNN to issue an apology.”

He then insisted CNN banned him from the air because “I was being too fair.”

“I was trying to assess what the essential issue was, and I wasn’t being partisan. They didn’t want that,” he continued on.”Fox is prepared to present all side of the issues. I’m a liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton but you have me on the air. CNN wouldn’t have me on the air because they only want a one-sided presentation.”

Dershowitz then said, “Everybody who watched CNN was shocked by the conclusions of the attorney general. Nobody who watched me wasn’t shocked because I’ve been predicting this from day one.”
