Former Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks examined how President Donald Trump has treated former porn star Stormy Danials than all other accussers during a captivating interview with Joy Reid on MSNBC's AM Joy Saturday.
"Jill, the other reason that Donald Trump may be nervous, he's mad at Sarah Huckabee Sanders for saying too much maybe," Reid noted. "Even if it is complete hooey, Jill Wine-Banks, why is Sarah Huckabee Sanders proactively talking about arbitration with somebody that Donald Trump is claiming he never had any sort of sexual relationship with?"
"Clearly she made a very big mistake, because, if he says he's not part of this at all, if his lawyers are lying and saying he's not part of it, why was he the beneficiary of a resolution in an arbitration?" Wine-Banks noted. "That was a big mistake."
Wine-Banks, who also served as General Counsel of the United States Army, suggested White House motivations came from an assumption Daniels has physical proof of a relationship.
"I think we have to look at a few other things, which why is Donald Trump treating Stormy Daniels differently than the 18 other women who brought nonconsensual claims against him," the former prosecutor continued. "He has not said anything as negative about her and has not attacked her, which suggests to me she does have something serious in terms of evidence against him."
"That's what we should be looking at, as well as remembering that this is hush money. Hush money is part of a coverup, that's what an obstruction of justice is," Wine-Banks reminded. "That's what gets presidents in trouble."
"One of the major things that brought down President Nixon was paying hush money to keep the defendants from telling the truth about who had hired them. I think there's a lot here to be uncovered yet," she predicted.
