MSNBC legal analysts Matt Miller and John Lauro were openly laughing while discussing the latest public flare-up in the legal battle between Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels.
Miller told a bemused Chris Jansing that lawyers generally go public when “they don’t have a strong handle on the facts or the law or their positions are weak.”
He added that in the case of Trump’s team, “Rudy Giuliani is doing that because he made a strategic decision that this is where the case is likely to end up, in front of the Congress, and he needs the public on his side.”
Miller said the characters in the ongoing saga may have any number of reasons for engaging in public, and urged wariness. “Some like being on TV. Michael Avenatti wants to launch a political career. Some people see it useful to the business,” he said, while getting in dig in at former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg, who “may be on TV for no apparent strategic reason.”
“Lanny Davis, Rudy Giuliani, Michael Avenatti, they’ve made serious mistakes that have hurt their clients,” said Lauro in a much harsher assessment. “Giuliani, for example, is a hot mess. He talked about how the payment to Stormy Daniels was linked to the campaign. That’s literally connecting his client to a criminal violation!”
