Legal commentator and former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz challenged MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough to a debate while being interviewed on “Fox & Friends” Saturday morning.
“First of all, it shows that people like ‘Morning Joe.’ You know, ‘Morning Joe’ claimed I was helping Vladimir Putin,” Dershowitz stated. “That by defending the civil liberties of all Americans, including our president, I was helping Vladimir Putin.”
“When you get somebody like that, misinforming the American public, and I have challenged him to get me on his show so I can debate him, he doesn’t have the guts to put me on. Just one minute,” he continued.

The conversation on the show was about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and the lack of knowledge about it on the public’s part.
Dershowitz has made headlines in recent days for sharing the fact that he has been ostracized and even threatened for defending President Trump while at Martha’s Vineyard.
“Morning Joe” responded to the news by saying that Dershowitz deserved the treatment. (RELATED: ‘MORNING JOE’ MAKES FUN OF ALAN DERSHOWITZ, SAYS HE DESERVES MARTHA’S VINEYARD BLOWBACK)
