Tucker Carlson and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz discussed former FBI Director James Comey’s new book. He said the book appears “revenge-driven” from a man still upset that President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, who he supported.
“This is a gossipy, revenge, make money quick, get even, hurt your political opponents, raise questions about the politicization of the Justice Department and the FBI. It’s the worst possible book at the worst possible time for the worst possible reasons.”
Fox News reports:
Dershowitz, who supported Clinton, said Comey openly speculated about a report in an unverified, partially Russian-sourced dossier that Trump engaged in sex acts with Moscow prostitutes.
He said that, as FBI director, Comey would “know the truth” about such a sensitive issue, adding that the report is still “nonsense and rubbish” without merit.
Dershowitz called the book a “gossipy revenge, make-money-quick” scheme by Comey with the added goal of hurting political opponents.
“[Comey] is exactly the wrong person to have headed the most important law enforcement agency in the U.S.,” Dershowitz said.
Carlson said Comey’s ongoing public sparring with Trump hurts the “remaining public trust” in the FBI.
