On Wednesday, MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" with Nicolle Wallace examined the question of what President Donald Trump is likely to do if one of his three eldest children or son-in-law Jared Kushner were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller.


"The way they got to Mike Flynn was because his son had some exposure," Wallace noted. "I'm not ascribing onto Donald Trump the humanity of Mike Flynn because that to me is a known unknown."

Wallace asked, "do you think that if there is any peril for Donald Trump, Jr., or his daughter's husband Jared Kushner..."

"Or his daughter," interrupted Zerlina Maxwell, the senior director of progressive programming for SiriusXM.

"Or his daughter," Wallace added, "that any of that calculation changes?"

Wallace noted that Trump allies had told her that the commander-in-chief would "love the fight" if he were to be impeached, but noted, "not so much if one of his children or son-in-law were in legal trouble."

"I think that's where it becomes more tricky," Maxwell cautioned. "I don't know what he will do if they go after his son or son-in-law or daughter -- or his other son, Eric Trump, who has openly talked about Russian money coming into their businesses."
