Ex-US Attorney: Trump is ‘scared to death’ as Mueller ‘squeezes’ his inner circle like toothpaste

Published

on

Former United States Attorney Michael Moore went on CNN Friday to break down the plea deal struck between former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and special counsel Robert Mueller — and he predicted bad things to come for the White House.

Moore said that the pattern the Mueller is following — that is, starting with lower level Trump campaign officials like George Papadopoulos and working up to bigger fish such as Flynn — is a by-the-book method for conducting these kinds of investigations.

“This is classic federal prosecutor style, and that’s what we would expect from Bob Mueller, and I think that’s what’s got the White House probably scared to death,” he said. “This is not unlike a tube of toothpaste — you squeeze it at the bottom, and the more you squeeze the more evidence comes out at one end. That’s what’s happening here as we continue to see Bob Mueller squeezing people in Trump’s inner circle.”

Moore then went on to connect Flynn’s admission to lying to FBI investigators to Trump’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, and said that Flynn’s guilty plea lends new weight to the investigation over whether Trump obstructed justice.

“That’s not fake anymore, it’s a real investigation,” he said.

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.

"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
