Alan Dershowitz: There Are Enough GOP Senators Who Wouldn’t Let Trump Appoint a ‘Crony’ as Next AG

Alan Dershowitz called into Fox News this afternoon to react to the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

And as Dershowitz told Neil Cavuto, one of the big questions going forward is “whether or not the [Mueller] report gets released publicly.”

Matthew Whitaker has been named acting attorney general, and he has already come under scrutiny for his very public criticisms of Robert Mueller‘s investigation.

Dershowitz said, “There are enough Republican senators who wouldn’t let him appoint a crony, who would at least insist that the person appointed be somebody of distinction and some degree of independence.”

As far as Whitaker is concerned, Dershowitz said there could be “possible recusal” because of the critical op-ed he wrote, adding, “Although I don’t think that’s a ground for recusal.”
