Legal scholar’s advice: ‘Write a rebuttal.’
Alan Dershowitz said President Trump and his legal team have to be ready when Special Counsel Robert Mueller releases his findings in the Russia probe, because the American public should not be presented with a “one-sided report.”
Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, explained that Mueller — who’s investigating Russian election meddling and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow — is not going to produce a “neutral” report.
“He’s not going to be fair. He’s going to produce what he believes is going to be a devastating attack,” Dershowitz said. “They’re going to put together every bit of evidence and present a mosaic which points to the White House, the Oval Office, the president.”
He said that’s why he has suggested the president’s legal team demand that when Mueller’s report is released, they are able to simultaneously release their own report.
