Former Donald Trump attorney Jay Goldberg on MSNBC.

MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber reported on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s former long-time attorney Jay Goldberg believes his successor, Michael Cohen, has exposed himself to federal criminal charges.

“Cohen is not alone in thinking that there may be legal exposure,” Melber reported. “I have something new for you — that we’re reporting now for the first time — the lawyer who was his predecessor, who spent 15 years as the exclusive litigator for Donald Trump, his personal attorney, agrees.”

“I asked him about Michael Cohen,” Melber noted. “He believes that Mueller’s deputy, Andrew Weissman, is pursuing a bank fraud case here.”

“What they did here, is probably Weissman thought that the money that Cohen had was secured from a bank through a loan in which he represented he was using it for a different purpose,” Goldberg argued. “Now that would be bank fraud, that’s the darling of the prosecutor’s nursery.”

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.

Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco

Published

on

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."
