Alan Dershowitz tells why today was a very dangerous day

Alan Dershowitz said today that the raid on President Trump’s attorney’s office is a very dangerous thing. Attorney Michael Cohen had two offices, his home, and a hotel room raided by the FBI. This appears to be a blatant attempt to turn Cohen against the President. If that happens, there will be tremendous repercussions. Mr. Dershowitz pulled no punches in his assessment of the actions that resulted from the Special Counsels’ “referral.” 

As Written and Reported By Pete Kasperowicz for the Washington Examiner:

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz warned Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to raid President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office is an assault on the privileged lawyer-client relationship.

Dershowitz said on Fox News that he believes the decision to raid Michael Cohen’s office would be a sign that Mueller is trying to turn Cohen against Trump.

“This may be an attempt to squeeze Cohen,” he said. “He’s the lawyer, he’s the guy who knows all the facts about Donald Trump, and to get him to turn against his client.”

“This is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations,” he added.

Dershowitz, who has drawn the ire of Democrats for defending Trump, said Mueller’s move is also dangerous because it gives the FBI the option of deciding what information seized from Cohen to pursue.

“I tell [clients] on my word of honor that what you tell me is sacrosanct,” he said. “And now they say, just based on probable cause … they can burst into the office, grab all the computers, and then give it to another FBI agent and say, ‘You’re the firewall. We want you now to read all these confidential communications, tell us which ones we can get and which ones we can’t…..
