Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Law School professor, dropped a bombshell on Sunday. He says former President Barack Obama "personally asked" the FBI to investigate someone "on behalf of George Soros."
“There was a lot of White House control of the Justice Department during the Kennedy administration and I don’t think we saw very many liberal professors arguing against that,” Dershowitz said in an interview with Breitbart News that aired Sunday on SiriusXM. “I have some information as well about the Obama administration – which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point, but I’m not prepared to disclose it now – about how President Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros, who was a close ally of his.”
“We’ve seen this kind of White House influence on the Justice Department virtually in every Justice Department. The difference: This president is much more overt about it, he tweets about it. President Obama whispered to the Justice Department about it. And, I don’t think these 1,000 former Justice Department officials would pass the shoe-on-the-other-foot test. Maybe some of them would, but a good many of them wouldn’t.”

More from Fox News:
“You said that George Soros asked Barack Obama to have his Justice Department investigate somebody?” Breitbart News pressed.
“That’s going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future, yeah,” Dershowitz responded. “I have in my possession the actual 302 form which documents this issue and it will at the right time come out, but I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed.”
Pressed on the claim that Obama pressed for an FBI probe, Dershowitz responded: “That’s going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future, yeah. That is not unusual. People whisper to presidents all the time; presidents whisper to the Justice Department all the time. It’s very common; it’s wrong, whoever does it — but it’s common, and we shouldn’t think it’s unique to any particular president. I have in my possession the actual 302 [witness report] form which documents this issue and it will at the right time come out, but I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed.”
Many Democrats, meanwhile, have floated the idea of impeaching Barr. The Washington Post ran an op-ed slamming Barr for acting as Trump’s “wingman” — even though former Attorney General Eric Holder explicitly identified himself as Obama’s “wingman.”
It is no wonder something like this would come out about Obama right now. This likely won't be the end of something like this being exposed.
