Alan Dershowitz: George Papadopoulos might have worn a wire to help Mueller investigation

Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz speculated Tuesday that George Papadopoulos, former foreign policy adviser to President Trump’s campaign, may have worn a wire to try to get on-the-record comments about the campaign’s ties to Russia.


Papadopoulos was arrested in July, but did not plead guilty to charges of making false statements to the FBI until October.

He may have worked special counsel Robert Mueller during that time, and Dershowitz speculated that he may have worn a wire to get evidence from Trump associates as part of a deal.

"That's why they would put a wire on him: they want self-proving evidence. They don't want to have to rely on him and his testimony because any good defense attorney would start out by saying 'tell us all the lies you engaged in — now why should we believe you now because you are getting a deal, you would sell your mother for this deal,'" Dershowitz told Fox News.
