Alan Dershowitz: Mueller’s Report is ‘Going to Be Devastating’ to Trump

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said he expects Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s report to be “devastating” to President Donald Trump.

Appearing on The Week for an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Dershowitz, a regular critic of the Mueller probe, said the following: “I think the report is going to be devastating to the president.”

“And I know that the president’s team is already working on a response to the report,” he added. “It will be made public probably with a response alongside. The president will say ‘Ah look it’s political.'”

Stephanopoulos noted, “For you to say it’s devastating is really something.”

Later in the segment, Dershowitz elaborated: “When I say devastating I mean it’s going to paint a picture that’s going to be politically very devastating.”

“I still don’t think it’s going to make a criminal case because collusion is not criminal,” he said.

Dershowitz proceeded to clash with Dan Abrams, ABC News chief legal analyst and Mediaite founder, over whether Trump can be charged with obstructing justice. Watch that here.
