Lawyers Jeffery Toobin and Alan Dershowitz did not see eye to eye in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
When asked if collusion took place in the Muller investigation Toobin said that collusion absolutely took place without hesitation.
“It is not just blatantly false about the questions because as you have pointed out several times, there are many questions on the Mueller list that deal with collusion. But the fact that the president keeps saying over and over again, there was no collusion, there was no collusion, that has not been established and in fact there is lots of evidence that collusion did take place,” he said.
He also went on to say that of course Trump is lying because, “People who are compulsive liars, they lie, and there doesn’t have to be an underlying crime.”
Dershowitz pointed out that lying alone is not necessarily a crime.
“The key is to distinguish between illegal aspects of collusion and unlawful. Meeting someone to get dirt is a terrible thing thing, but not unlawful,” he said.

These 6 former Trump officials are most likely to throw him under the bus in 2020
Former Trump White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said on Monday that he believed we would soon see a groundswell of former Trump administration officials coming out to publicly denounce the president ahead of his 2020 reelection bid in an effort to warn Americans of his unfitness for office.
Given that the Trump White House has experienced record turnover during its two-and-a-half year existence, there is no shortage of disgruntled former officials who could come out against the president's reelection campaign within the next year.
Trump’s ignorance has touched off a new crisis in Kashmir
While Americans parse conspiracy theories about billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s demise in a Manhattan jail cell, Trump’s sinister role in helping light a fuse in one of the most dangerous areas of the world has gone virtually unnoticed – by the U.S. that is.
India’s abrupt takeover on Aug. 5 of the Muslim-majority Kashmir state was a double whammy for the seven million inhabitants of this once-storied Himalayan kingdom nominally ruled by India and bordered by arch-enemy Pakistan as well as China, both of which claim territory in the region. All three countries have nuclear weapons.
Is Trump right? Is there ‘something going on’ at Fox News?
President Donald Trump denounced Fox News after the network released a poll showing him lagging behind the four current frontrunners for the Democratic presidential nomination.
"Fox has changed, and my worst polls have always been from Fox. There's something going on at Fox — I'll tell you right now," Trump told reporters Sunday in New Jersey. "And I'm not happy with it."
The president went on to list which talent on the Fox News roster he was pleased with, while also suggesting that the hosts of the presidential debates could be determined by who treats him most favorably.
"Fox was treated very badly by the Democrats — very, very badly having to do with the Democrats and other things. And I think Fox is making a big mistake," Trump added. "Because you know, I'm the one who calls the shots on the really big debates. I guess we're probably planning on three of them. And I'm not happy with Fox."
