Dershowitz: Special Counsel Probe 'Backwards,' Like Stalin's Secret Police | People's Pundit Daily: Liberal Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that the FBI scrutiny of Jared Kusher “raises great concerns about civil liberties.” Mr. Dershowitz said the Russia probe was “being done backwards” and likened it to Stalin’s secret police.
“Usually, you can point to a statute and say, ‘We’re investigating crime under this statute,'” Dershowitz told Anderson Cooper on CNN. “What Mueller seems to be doing is saying: ‘We don’t like what happened. Maybe there was some collaboration. But I can’t figure out what statute was being violated.’
“When Hillary Clinton was being investigated, at least we knew what the statute was.”
Reports on Thursday claimed the FBI was investigating Kushner’s meetings last year with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and a banker from Moscow.
Kushner has cooperated with investigators and even volunteered to talk to lawmakers and the FBI.
