Late Night host Seth Meyers teased President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, over his defense of the presidents alleged incriminating tweets about Mueller’s investigation.
During an impromptu interview with reporters, Giuliani said that President Trump was just tweeting his opinions and that he hasn’t fully researched if obstructing justice is a crime.
“I’m not going to tell you my opinion on it, because I haven’t really gotten to the conclusion of researching,” Giuliani said.
Meyers was stunned that Giuliani is the best representation that President Trump has. “This says a lot about your case when this is the best lawyer you can get to represent you,” Meyers said.
“You want a guy who sounds like Atticus Finch,” Meyers said. “Rudy sounds like he just wandered outside of Central Park wearing an open hospital gown.”
Trump border official melts down on MSNBC after refusing to admit Trump lied about ‘mass raids’
On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," Ari Melber confronted acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan about President Donald Trump's empty threat of "mass raids" of communities nationwide by immigration officials — and Morgan was not pleased.
"The president said there would be these mass raids. Described as thousands of arrests," said Melber. "Were there mass raids, yes or no?"
"First of all, I don’t actually call this a raid," said Morgan. "I think words matter."
"Words matter, so I’m going to get to your response," said Melber. "Were there mass raids as promised?"
DOJ policy blocking Trump from being indicted ‘factored into’ the end of the Stormy Daniels case: report

Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty to the violation of campaign finance law. He said that he carried out the effort in coordination with and at the direction of then-candidate Donald Trump in order to increase his chances of victory in the 2016 presidential election.
