Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz believes that he hasn't been booked to appear on CNN over what many perceive to be his favorable sentiments for President Donald Trump.

What did he say?

Dershowitz, appearing on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal," explained that his being "pro-Trump" just isn't the case.

"More and more I'm getting called on only by people who misunderstand and think I'm pro-Trump," Dershowitz admitted. "I'm not pro-Trump, but it's been harder for me to get on anti-Trump networks — not that I'm craving to be on television all the time."

The famed law professor went on to note that he'd love to be a voice that all sides can listen to fairly.

"I have a good life, but it has had an impact on which channels seek my services more often, and that's changed," he said. "I used to be, for example, on CNN more often than on Fox. I was a regular — not paid — but just a person who was on all the time debating with [CNN legal analyst Jeffrey] Toobin, debating with others."

Dershowitz's last appearance on CNN was in September.

"I'd love to be available to people who watch all channels and I try to write op-eds widely for different newspapers and different media," he explained.

What about his book?

In July, Dershowitz released his book, "The Case Against Impeaching Trump." He was also a supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

During his recent appearance on C-SPAN, Dershowitz said that if Clinton had won the election and he had written his July book as "The Case Against Impeaching Hillary Clinton," his friends and neighbors in Martha's Vineyard would have "built a statue" honoring him.

"Instead, my friends on Martha's Vineyard need trigger warnings," he lamented.

Dershowitz added, "There are many reasons I wish Hillary Clinton had been elected president, one of which is, I would've kept many more friends if I had written the book, 'The Case Against Impeaching Hillary Clinton,' but I want to emphasize, it would've been essentially the same book."
