During an AM Joy panel discussion on both the Steele Dossier and President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer paying off an adult film star to keep quiet about their affair, guests on the show said that the president has always put himself in the position to be blackmailed so he employs a “lawyer goon squad” to protect him and to blackmail back.
“Donald Trump, was, reportedly, willing to pay $130,000 to squash the [Stormy Daniels] story. Thus, maybe making him susceptible to blackmail. What do you make about it,” host Joy Reid asked the panel.
“Of course Trump is susceptible to blackmail,” authoritarian expert Sarah Kendzior explained. “It kind of blows my mind that a lot of people are just now realizing this. It’s like just realizing that he’s a racist. Why do people think he has surrounded himself with a lawyer goon squad for 40 years? Whether it’s Roy Cohn or Michael Cohen? The company he keeps include the American mafia, Russian mafia, arms traders, pedophiles, money launderers and other people involved in white collar crime.”
“When you surround yourself with those sorts of people, engagements in those kinds of actions, your lawyers will be very aggressive. They put out an NDA [nondisclosure agreement] for anybody that Trump comes in contact with,” she continued as her fellow panelists smiled. “They know he is a consistent scumbag. This is just one more example of a pattern of behavior that has been going on for Trump’s entire life.”

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
