Alan Dershowitz Trashes ‘Shameful’ James Comey: ‘This is a Man Who is Revenge-Driven’

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz had a lot to say about former FBI Director James Comey and his new book, A Higher Loyalty.

Dershowitz began by telling Tucker Carlson that not only should Comey have been fired on Day One of the Trump presidency but that he should never been appointed to lead the agency.

“This is a man who is revenge-driven, who is prepared to leak through a law professor at Columbia, who is prepared to disclose confidential conversations he had with the president-elect and the president of the United States,” Dershowitz said. “He is exactly the wrong person to have headed one of the most important law enforcement agencies in the United States. This sends a horrible message to FBI agents and law enforcement people about leaking and about confidences and trying to keep emotion out of law enforcement and politics out of law enforcement.”

He believe that the “worst part” about this was when Comey compared President Trump to a “mob boss” and called him speculating about the alleged pee tape from the dossier “nonsense and rubbish.”

“I used to have a good feeling about Comey,” Dershowitz continued. “I now only have very, very strong negative feelings about him and he just enhances the suspicions that I think so many Americans now have about law enforcement and we ought to be trusting law enforcement. And nobody today would trust Comey with secrets and confidences.”

He dismissed the book as “gossipy” and called Comey “scandalous and shameful.”
