Mulvaney fiasco lays bare the Trump administration’s ‘scattershot’ operation fighting impeachment: reporter
On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "Hardball," PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor broke down how White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney's admission of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal, and subsequent efforts to walk it back, reveal the complete lack of preparation and planning at the White House for the impeachment battle.
"The White House has really been trying to develop its impeachment inquiry strategy, but they haven't really settled on anything," said Alcindor. "At one point they were trying to hire former congressman Trey Gowdy, then the president was surprised by the fact that he couldn't start until January, which is going to be well into the impeachment inquiry, and so you have a White House still trying to formulate itself."
‘Hello President Pence’: Ex-prosecutor says it is ‘game over’ for Trump after Mulvaney’s confession
On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner told host Ari Melber that White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney's press briefing today might be the turning point that guarantees President Donald Trump's removal from office.
"That’s a confession," said Kirschner. "Whether you call that extortion, bribery, campaign finance violations or what Alexander Hamilton called it, an impeachable offense as an abuse of your public office and a violation of your public trust. Frankly, it qualifies as all of those things and Mick Mulvaney just said it out loud. Now, the fact that they tried to walk it back too little too late is an indication of just how damaging that accurate confession really is. So that is impeachment game over. It should be conviction in the Senate and removal — game over and hello, President Pence."
Giuliani has secret ‘log’ of his Ukraine contacts: Ex-Trump lawyer says he has ‘seen the book’
Former Donald Trump lawyer Jay Goldberg on Thursday revealed that he has seen a secret "book" compiled by Rudy Giuliani logging his contracts in Ukraine.
During an interview with MSNBC's Ari Melber, Goldberg says the book as not yet been subpoenaed.
"I think Guiliani has been seduced by Mar-a-Lago, the lifestyle. It’s very heady to be on the plane, gold-plated," Goldberg said.
"Does Rudy Giuliani have any evidence or records that could resolve what he was doing with Ukraine?" Melber asked.
"Yes," Goldberg replied.
"There’s a book that he kept of all the contacts that he made while in the Ukraine," Goldberg revealed. "It hasn’t been subpoenaed thus far. It hasn’t come to light."
