Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz blasted away claims of obstruction-of-justice on Wednesday, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper that U.S. Presidents have the Constitutional right to start or stop any investigation.

Trump could’ve simply pardoned former national security advisor Michael Flynn, said Dershowitz, and the entire investigation would have been over anyway.
“The President could have said stop this investigation, I am now pardoning Flynn. That’s what President Bush did.”
When the professor made the Bush comparison, Anderson began stammering and interrupting.
