Dershowitz: Trump team playing into Mueller's hands

BY MALLORY SHELBOURNE - 05/06/18 11:13 AM EDT

Attorney Alan Dershowitz in an interview broadcast Sunday said President Trump’s lawyers are playing into special counsel Robert Mueller’s hands.

“It seems to me that the approach last week of the Trump team plays into the hands of Mueller’s tactic to try at any cost – to try to find technical violations against lower-ranking people so that they can be squeezed,” Dershowitz told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The remarks from Dershowitz come amid the fallout from comments made last week by Rudy Giuliani, who recently joined President Trump’s legal team. He told Fox News that the president reimbursed his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, for the $130,000 payment he made ahead of the 2016 election to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

Giuliani has conducted multiple interviews with news outlets in the last few days, seeking to clarify his previous remarks.

Dershowitz during the NBC interview said Trump’s team is “admitting to enough that warrants scrutiny,” adding that the last few days constitute a “bad week for both sides.”

Giuliani on Sunday again emphasized that the payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was meant to shield Trump's family from embarrassment.

2. The payment to Daniels was to shield trumps family from embarrassment..

they should have been embarrassed by him years ago by his hair, orange skin with white eyes, lieing, bragging, calling himself John Barron, bad business decisions, treatment of women, etc, etc, etc.
