Comey Memos Will Help Trump

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz told Fox News that he believes Comey’s memos are indeed not incriminating and “will help, not hurt the president if he were to face any kind of legal charges.”

Dershowitz more specifically stated, “I think the memos are not incriminating. They are somewhat ambiguous. They’re self-serving. But in the end, I think they will help, not hurt the president if he were to face any kind of legal charges. Because you’d expect the head of the FBI to be a lot firmer about alleged criminal conduct if he was a direct witness to it. And of course, Comey has provided the Trump defense with the greatest possible weapon if he ever takes the stand against Trump, and that is manuscripts of his book, earlier drafts, all would subject him to cross-examination, plus the memos, which will be unredacted when it comes to trial. So, I think this is probably a benefit to the president rather than a detriment.”
