Dershowitz: Stone indictment ‘typical of Mueller,’ not evidence of collusion
Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz blasted Robert Mueller over his most recent indictment of Roger Stone.
Dershowitz essentially accused Mueller of creating crimes where none exist. “This is typical of Mueller. He has found almost no crimes that occurred before he was appointed special counsel,” he said on Friday in an appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”
The Master of Deception
When Mueller undertook this investigation, he was supposed to be focused on finding proof of collusion.
After wasting nearly two years and millions of dollars, he has found no evidence to support the claim that President Donald Trump, as a candidate, ever colluded with the Russians for the purpose of winning the presidential election.
Yes, Mueller has issued several indictments, but they are actually irrelevant to the main point of the probe.
“Almost all of his crimes that he’s indicted people for are crimes that resulted from his investigation,” Dershowitz stated.
That can sound just a bit confusing, so allow me to explain.
Mueller is a master at tripping people up once he gets them under oath.
He hammers his witnesses relentlessly, hitting them from several different angles to confuse them.
Once he knows he has the witness confused, he will revisit something they have testified on before on in the hopes of tripping them up, which is pretty easy to do at that point.
A witness confuses their timelines or events, and poof, all of a sudden, they are guilty of lying under oath or misleading investigators.
That is the primary reason Trump’s attorneys are refusing to allow the president to sit down with him.
Roger Stone Indictment
Dershowitz’s analysis comes after the Friday arrest of Roger Stone.
Just as many of the indictments in this investigation, nothing in the Stone indictment points to actual collusion.
Much of this case centers around Stone’s testimony about his communications regarding Wikileaks in 2016.
But, as several legal pundits noticed, significant information is missing on even these charges.
The one area where Stone may end up in trouble, though, is witness tampering, as the case against him in the indictment seems fairly strong, according to legal experts.
But the bottom line, Dershowitz said, is that Mueller has “virtually failed” in actually doing the task he was hired to do.
On this, Dershowitz said, “But it really means there’s been a failure to uncover the basic crimes for which he was appointed. Namely, before he was appointed, was there illegal collusion, illegal conspiracy with Russia.”
So far, the answer to that question is a resounding “No.”
Which leads us to wonder, why is this investigation still running?
