"He's going to find no crime": Dershowitz calls special counsel appointment good news for Trump

“He’s going to find no crime,” Dershowitz predicted.

“Political wrongdoing, but it’s just not a crime,” he said. “Nobody can point me to a statute that would be violated. And a prosecutor is only allowed to look for evidence of a federal crime.”

“Nobody can point me to a statute that would be violated. And a prosecutor is only allowed to look for evidence of a federal crime. And the reason I think Trump may benefit from this is this will be a secret proceeding. Mueller is a very honorable guy, so he’s not going to leak anything. And in the end, he’s going to find no crime,” Dershowitz said.

“It’s going to be done in secret, behind closed doors, and all we get in the end is no indictment or a lower-level former official gets indicted,” Dershowitz said. “And I think in the end that helps the Trump administration, not hurts them.”
