The indictment of Roger Stone is a "typical Mueller indictment," according to Alan Dershowitz.

Stone, a former political adviser to President Trump, has been indicted on charges of obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

On "America's Newsroom" Friday, Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, said the indictment is full of "stories" of Russian collusion, but all the actual charges are a result of the investigation.



"This is typical of Mueller. He has found almost no crimes that occurred before he was appointed special counsel," Dershowitz said, adding that's Mueller was appointed to find such crimes and he's "virtually failed" in that respect.

"Almost all of his crimes that's he's indicted people for are crimes that resulted from his investigation," Dershowitz said.

He noted, however, the fact that Stone's alleged crimes were generated by the Mueller probe does not make them any less criminal.

"But it really means that 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?"
