Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz reacted to the Buzzfeed report disputed by Robert Mueller that alleged President Trump instructed Michael Cohen to commit perjury before Congress.

"Civil libertarians don't seem to be concerned about the issues [anymore]," Dershowitz said of the ongoing lack of "careful analysis" of allegations against Trump.

He said that he raised his own personal skepticism about the Buzzfeed report prior to Mueller spokesman Peter Carr taking issue with the piece.

Dershowitz dismissed comparisons between Trump and President Richard Nixon, saying that the latter was recorded on audiotape telling associates to lie.

"There are no credible allegations [of that sort] against Trump," he said.

Dershowitz said that analysts and pundits should "stop substituting wishful thinking... for careful legal analysis and careful factual analysis."

"We have a right to be informed of the facts," he said, going on to offer Mueller's team credit for publicly stating their dispute of the Buzzfeed report.
