Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz on Thursday said Hunter Biden’s indictment warrants the appointment of a special counsel to look into President Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s shady deals.
Dershowitz, in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” praised Judge Maryellen Noreika for not accepting Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal with the Justice Department. Dershowitz maintained that the judge’s decision not to accept the deal made it impossible to cover up Hunter’s crimes.
“Well, first of all, let’s remember who’s responsible for all of this coming out. We have to give credit to Judge Noreika. Judge Noreika made sure that this was not all covered up by a deal that made no sense. … But she did the right thing. She sent it back, and the result has been, now, much more information coming out to the American public. As I’ve said before, I hope that this results in the appointment of a real special counsel, outside the Justice Department, looking at the president of the United States. Because if it becomes just an impeachment concern, then half the country won’t believe it, half the country will.”
This is not the first time Dershowitz has called for a special counsel infestation into the president. Former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin revealed in August that the president demanded his firing because Hunter and Joe Biden had been bribed by Burisma. Following Shokin’s revelation, Dershowitz maintained that Joe Biden should be calling for a special counsel investigation if he is innocent.
“Joe Biden himself ought to be asking for a special counsel,” Dershowitz said. “There is enough smoke. There’s enough suspicion. I don’t want — if I were myself, anybody to suspect me of bribery. If he’s innocent, let him be the one calling for a special counsel. Let Garland then go outside, pick the former dean, the presidents of universities, somebody, former judge and justice of the Supreme Court, let them investigate the case. That’s (allegations against Joe Biden) the basis for appointing a special counsel. Maybe people ought to go to court and demand that the court require the appointment of special counsel because it seems to fit within all the criteria for special counsel. And the failure to appoint a special counsel, now there is already a special counsel.”
