Preet Bharara, the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, appeared on Bill Maher’s HBO’s show on Friday night to talk about Trump, treason, and Rudy Giuliani.
Maher has long believed that Trump is leading a slow-moving coup, while Bharara urged calm.
Bharara softly bashed Guiliani, who held the same job as he did decades before.
“Giliani is supposed to be a professional lawyer,” Bharara said. “He was a trial lawyer by training and understood integrity, in speaking about cases in court or out of court… in recent times, he’s taken on an aura of someone who doesn’t recognize that the truth is.”
Bharara also likes Chris Wray at the FBI.
“And by the way, I think the person he got to run the FBI is excellent,” he said. “I think he accidentally got a good person to run the FBI.”
Both men agreed the so-called Deep State was the best hope the U.S. has right now.
“God bless the Deep state,” said Bharara.
Maher said he thinks everyone is too calm, while Bharara
“There’s a saying, if you’re going for the king, you’ve to kill the king,” Bharara said.
“You mean that metaphorically, you mean that metaphorically,” Maher said.
WATCH: Trump apologist goes down in flames when he claims Democrats don’t get attacked like Trump
Former White House advisor Matt Mowers went down in flames trying to claim Democrats call everyone a racist when they don't agree with them. He had to go back 15 years to find an example, but still never fully explained what the example was.
In a panel discussion with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, Mowers employed the "what about" strategy, spinning the idea that Trump's racist remarks were justified because Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) used an anti-Semitic trope. To be fair, Omar apologized and met with community leaders and officials to better understand anti-Semitism. Trump can't even admit when he did something wrong, much less racist.
Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist
Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.
"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'
One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
Trump plays ‘small ball’ because he can’t get a big hit on anything: Democratic Congressman
Rep. Anthony Brown (D-MD) accused the president of being unable to hit a home run on any of the promises he made in 2016. Instead, he's playing "small ball."
Using a baseball metaphor, Brown explained that President Donald Trump isn't exactly the heavy hitter he wants to pretend he is.
"I think the president is playing political small-ball. He's a small-baller on the political field," said Brown in an MSNBC interview. "What I mean by that is he gets no big wins, home runs or base hits when it comes to health care and infrastructure or any other important policy matters that the American people have focused on."
