CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and Harvard professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz went head to head over the FBI allegedly spying on the Trump campaign on “Anderson Cooper 360” Monday.


“I have to tell you, if this had happened to Hillary Clinton, the ACLU would be jumping up and down the way they did when I was on the board of the ACLU, when undercover agents were put into the anti-war movement, into Civil Rights movement,” Dershowitz said.

“All they were there was to listen–into Muslim churches. Civil libertarians are generally a little bit suspicious when undercover agents go ‘just to ask questions.’ And I think we as civil libertarians ought to be suspicious of this. Allay our suspicions, and then we’ll be fine,” Dershowitz said.

Trump tweeted Sunday that he wanted to investigate FBI/DOJ spying into his 2016 campaign. (RELATED: Trump To Order Investigation Into FBI/DOJ Surveillance Of His Campaign)
