Who should we believe regarding Trump probe?
In his May 22 column, Douglas Turner states: “Comey’s notes, this column believes, confirm that Trump then committed a crime, an obstruction of justice. That’s just one impeachable offense.”
On May 19, distinguished liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz called the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller “good news for Trump,” and added, “He’s going to find no crime. That’s political wrongdoing, but it’s just not a crime. Nobody can point me to a statute that would be violated.”
So, we readers are faced with the decision: Should we accept the legal opinion of Turner, a respected, well-intended member of the media, or should we accept the opposing legal opinion of Dershowitz, a nationally known distinguished Harvard law professor?
