‘Bad things are going to happen’: Morning Joe warns Trump associates to give up goods to Mueller — or else

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said the latest bombshell revelations about the Russia investigation showed why President Donald Trump’s associates should fear special counsel Robert Mueller.

New reporting shows federal investigators intended to indict former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and reveals how quickly Mueller’s team has gathered potentially damning evidence against the president’s associates.

“Bob Mueller does not play around,” Scarborough said. “He is the antithesis of everything that Donald Trump is. He is a man that has repeatedly, throughout his entire life, believed that if you have integrity, nothing else matters — and if you don’t, nothing else matters.”

The New York Times reported that federal agents convinced a judge to let them pick Manafort’s lock before executing a pre-dawn search warrant, and Scarborough said that should send a chill down the spine of Trump’s campaign associates.

“This sends a message to everybody in this investigation,” he said. “Forget what Donald Trump has told you, forgot the nod and the winks, forget the assurances that everything is going to be okay — everything is not going to be okay. Bob Mueller will figure out how to get to the facts. If you have information, you better give it to him or bad things are going to happen.”

The “Morning Joe” host reminded viewers that Mueller was also working with New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman, which means charges are in play at the state level — beyond the reach of a presidential pardon.

“There is nothing Donald Trump can do to help you there,” he warned.

On Wednesday, during the second night of arguments in the impeachment trial, the Senate chamber was startled by a screaming protester — evidently opposed to removal of President Donald Trump — charging the gallery before being seized and thrown out by Capitol police.

The protester, who reportedly was shouting about abortion and calling on senators to dismiss the charges, was ordered ejected from the chamber by Chief Justice John Roberts. He continued to shout as he was being removed from the premises.

A protester just burst into the Senate gallery, Gallery 5, across chamber from the dais, yelling something like "Jesus Christ! They're trying to overturn the election!" Capitol Police instantly grabbed him and pulled him out to the hall. Yelling continued. #impeachmenttrial

Mitch McConnell just gave Democrats a huge gift — by publicly tainting any acquittal of Trump: columnist

Published

on

It seems all but inevitable that the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump will end with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) mustering the votes to block conviction, no matter what the evidence says and no matter whether Democrats successfully bring in new witnesses and documents.

But McConnell has already handed a victory to Democrats in one key aspect, wrote columnist E. J. Dionne for the Washington Post. His handling of the trial has removed any possibility that impeachment will bolster the president's approval — and emboldened Democrats to take their case to the American people as hard as they can. Indeed, wrote Dionne, Democrats "owe a debt" to McConnell.

Published

on

Former Army Ranger Jason Crow repeatedly drew upon his experience serving three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan during his prosecution of President Donald Trump as an impeachment manager.

Crow, who was awarded the Bronze Star and retired as a Captain, attended law school after his military service before successfully winning a seat in Congress during the 2018 midterm elections.

Elie Mystal, a justice correspondent for The Nation magazine, explained how Crow pulled rank on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

Mystal broked down how Crow put Roberts in his place with the subtle question of whether senators were getting restless and needed a break.
