Norm Eisen -- founder and board chair of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) -- compared special counsel Robert Mueller to a "short order cook" in response to news that former Trump 2016 official Rick Gates is now a cooperating witness.


"Norm, what do you make of the fact that Mueller has been able to flip three people?" asked anchor Ana Cabrera, meaning former national security adviser Mike Flynn, campaign aide George Papadopoulos and now Gates.

"He's flipping them like a short order cook, Ana," said Eisen gleefully. "And what I make of it is this was a campaign led by a candidate who evinced contempt for the rule of law and for ethics."
