Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz reportedly visited the White House on Tuesday and had dinner with President Trump.
“Some news – Dershowitz has been at the White House for part of today as Trump seeks his input, and he’s supposed to have dinner with the president tonight, per WH sources,” New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted.
Dershowitz has stood out among liberals as a harsh critic of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“I don’t think he cares whether he hurts Democrats or Republicans. But he’s a partisan and a zealot,” Dershowitz told New York’s AM 970 of Mueller on Monday.
In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday night, Dershowitz also described the FBI raid of the home and offices of Michael Cohen as “an attempt to squeeze” the Trump attorney.
“He’s the lawyer, he’s the guy who knows all of the facts about Donald Trump — to get him to turn against his client,” said Dershowitz. “This is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.”
Dershowitz also appeared on “Hannity” Tuesday and talked briefly about his meeting with Trump.
“We discussed the Middle East and a range of subjects,” he told Hannity.
