NOBODY, APPARENTLY: Alan Dershowitz on James Comey’s leaked memos: Who will guard the guardians?

President Trump has accused former FBI Director James Comey of illegality in leaking memos that may have contained classified information. If it is true that the leaked Comey memos – laundered through a law professor in an effort to pressure Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein into appointing a special counsel – contained classified information, who will investigate Comey?

Surely the special counsel, Robert Mueller, Comey’s friend who he helped get appointed, could not conduct a credible investigation. Nor could Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller. Will yet another special counsel have to be appointed to conduct an investigation into Comey’s leaking?

Well, that’s kind of what I’ve recommended.
