In an interview on Fox Liberal Lawyer Alan Dershowitz claimed that Mueller is hoping Manafort will testify against Donald Trump.

Here is what Dershowitz said:

“The judge is not sympathetic to this prosecution,” he said. “I suspect that we’ll see that in some of his rulings.”

Dershowitz added that in D.C., Manafort is less likely to get a sympathetic jury and that the courts have “two shots” at him.

“[They’re hoping to say] look, you have two choices: die in prison or testify against your former associate. And most people will take the ‘testify’ option rather than the ‘die in prison’ option.”

Manafort’s attorney claimed he won’t cooperate with Mueller.
