Dershowitz: 'This Is the Most Serious Charge Ever Made Against a Sitting President'
Alan Dershowitz says that President Trump is facing the "most serious charge ever made against a sitting president" following a bombshell story on his reported disclosure of classified information to Russian officials.
On CNN's "Erin Burnett Outfront," the legal scholar and Harvard University Law School professor said this report overshadows Trump's dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, and it must not be underestimated.
"This is the most serious charge ever made against a sitting president. Let's not minimize it," Dershowitz said. "Comey is in the wastebasket of history. Everything else is off the table."

On "America's Newsroom" today, Mike Huckabee disagreed with Dershowitz's assessment, pointing out that Trump did nothing illegal and did not share any information that wasn't already in the public domain.
He said it was actually in the interest of U.S. national security for Trump to share information with the Russians about ISIS, terrorism and airline flight safety.
"I don't believe for a moment that he gave away classified information," Huckabee said. "Here's what I don't understand: why wasn't the media that upset when Hillary Clinton had illegal servers in her home that were likely hacked by the Russians? How come the press wasn't as upset when the Russians or WikiLeaks or whoever hacked into the DNC and spilled out all the secrets?"
He said this selective outrage is why so many Americans hate the press.
"They're becoming less important every day because of ridiculous reporting like this," Huckabee said.
