Former federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova ripped special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the wake of the raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s properties, reports Fox News.
DiGenova, who served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, said the raid on Cohen was an “unconstitutional and unprofessional search.”
He said Cohen was cooperating with the special counsel and was not deserving of the severe treatment on behalf of the Southern District of New York.
DiGenova also agreed with some critics who said Rosenstein must be relieved of duty due to conflicts of interest and an alleged bias against Trump.
“Rod Rosenstein is so incompetent, compromised and conflicted that he can no longer serve as the deputy attorney general,” DiGenova said of the former Maryland federal prosecutor.
DiGenova said Attorney General Jeff Sessions has the responsibility to fire Rosenstein, not Trump.
“It’s so appalling in every sense,” he said of the situation.
Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Law school professor also recently went on Sean Hannity’s show to talk about him about how this situation with the Mueller investigation proves the point he is trying to make in his new book, “Trumped Up.”
“You can find evidence to create or manufacture crimes against anybody if you’re determined to do so. That’s whats wrong with the special counsel because they come in with targets painted on people’s back and people like Comey and people like Mueller are going to find crimes whether they have to go and find a technical violation of banking laws on which they can hook pornography stars or things of that kind,” Dershowitz said.
The law professor believes that there need to be clearly distinct criminal lines in order for the FBI to take an attack like this on a political figure, or else it can just be used as a political attack on a certain person, as is being seen with the whole Mueller investigation against Trump.
