Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz will have dinner Tuesday at the White House with President Donald Trump
He tells DailyMail.com that the Department of Justice violated Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's rights when it seized his documents on Monday
The government will set up a team of agents and lawyers to review the material to make sure prosecutors don't see anything 'privileged'
That could include documents covered by the sanctity of an attorney-client relationship, whose mere presence in prosecutors' hands could 'taint' a case
But since those 'taint teams' are made up of government agents, Dershowitz says the DOJ already has them which is unconstitutional

That suggests there may be a serious legal challenge made to Mueller/Rosenstein.
Will it go to the Supreme Court? Major constitutional issues involved....
These are the types of issues that Dershowitz likes.
I suspect that Dershowitz may see an avenue for a major constitutional case here. Just guessing, but Dershowitz has gone on the record savaging the raid on Trump’s lawyer.
Dershowitz flew on the Epstein plane 4 times. Not smart of Trump to cozy up to him.
I really dont want to imagine what he likes.
Exactly. His entire career has dealt with stopping govt over-reach and prosecutorial misconduct. One can debate whether he takes it too far in some cases, but it would be great to have him on “our” side here, heh heh.
A simple question ensues from this....
Aren’t all the POS’s involved with all of this, lawyers?
Dershowitz is reportedly at the White House tonight!!!
The Democrat knives, guns and rocket launchers will come out for him now. Guaranteed.
I doubt they will be too cozy, but if Dershowitz has some valuable legal/constitutional advice to offer, POTUS Trump and his team would be wise to know what it is.
Dershowitz and every lawyer should be savaging the DOJ over this. In fact, if I were a D.U.S.A I wouldn’t go near the documents seized from Cohen’s office. Looking at anything confidential under attorney-client privilege is grounds for disbarment.
This is a coup.
I call it the Donkey Coup.
He’s right. As far as it goes, ALL Cohen’s client’s records are protected by attorney-client privilege.
how would we know if they peeked? would they tell us?
did the same for manafort
I think Ive discovered the problem. Mueller and Rosenstein are Russian agents. Think about it, they are destroying the American justice system. They are distracting an American President During very troubled times. Ill bet those two are on the take big time
Ofcourse, they give us assurances that privileged material will be protected. Who these days will believe these promises by the Democrat DOJ/FBI?
What are Trump's lawyers doing sitting around and allowing this to go on without any challenge?

Excactly. Had Mueller’s treasonous assault happened to Bush the GOPe would have beeen screaming from the top of the Capitol dome.
You can trace this “one set or rules for Trump., One set of rules for everybody” else back to the Never Trump movement during the primaries.
Everything has spiraled down from there, IMO. Those folks who started this hysteria have never been called to account on it.
When I think of the biased scumbags like Page, Strzok, et al., the idea that anyone in DOJ or FBI can simply be “trusted” to be on this “taint team” to review all of lawyer Cohen’s confidential records is simply preposterous.
I’ll be looking forward to Judge Jeanine Pirro’s monologue on Sunday.
