'Take It to SCOTUS': Guilfoyle on Trump Supporter Who Lost Suit Against Bar That Booted Him


Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said Saturday that the precedents being set in the Russia probe against President Donald Trump will have a negative effect on civil liberties for American citizens.

Dershowitz said that Democrats are prepared to eliminate civil liberties when it comes to convicting the president of a crime.

He referenced a point in the film "A Man for All Seasons" when the protagonist said he'd give the devil the right of the law, to which his opponent said he cannot.

"Democrats and left-wingers obviously think President Trump is the devil," he said.

The House Intelligence Committee on Friday “found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government.” The committee did, however, “find poor judgment and ill-considered actions by the Trump and Clinton campaign.”

"You've got to commit yourself to civil liberties without regard to which side is being attacked," Dershowitz said on "Fox & Friends."

Dershowitz said he was also critical of Republicans who tried to "expand the criminal law" to convict Hillary Clinton over her email scandal.

"It's always a mistake to expand the criminal law or the grounds for impeachment against your political enemies because it's going to come back to bite you in the rear end," he said.
