The former District Attorney of Philadelphia told MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber that former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus is unlikely to protect President Donald Trump from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Late Friday afternoon, Priebus’ defense lawyer Bill Burck released a statement that, “Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller’s team today.”
“I think Reince Priebus will answer the questions truthfully,” former DA and Governor Ed Rendell explained to Melber as news broke of today’s testimony. “I think he’s not going to risk hurting himself or later being prosecuted for perjury.”
“I think he will paint a picture of potential obstruction, there’s no question about it,” Rendell predicted.
“Reince Priebus is not going to lie for Donald Trump, I don’t believe it for a second,” Rendell explained.
