Published

Daily Beast reporter Anna Schecter revealed to MSNBC on Tuesday that her interview today with Jerome Corsi was abruptly shut down by his lawyers after a call from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office, sending everyone into howls of laughter.

“I was about to go sit down and tape an interview with him exclusively,” said Schecter. “He was in a car outside of Rockefeller Center and he didn’t come into the building.”

“What? You buried the lede,” laughed co-host Stephanie Ruhle as Schecter continued.

“He doesn’t get out of the car. His lawyer says ‘shut it down, you’re not doing the interview,” she said. “His lawyer just had a call with special counsel’s office. He won’t tell me what transpired in that call.

“Get out of town. Is he going to pay you back for that ride?” Ruhle asked as the entire panel broke out in laughter. “I’m sorry, if I knew that was happening, I’d have been hanging outside 30 Rock all morning.”

The "Morning Joe" host said Wednesday night's debate focused too much on "academic politics," which he said is a luxury this current political moment can't afford.

"It seems to me that the battles that we see in these debates remind me of the smallness of academic politics," Scarborough said. "The smallness, the difference, the minutia between, 'Did I help you get that passed, did you get that passed, you owe me this, I thank President Obama, but I don't thank you' -- come on, man."

An Italian court is to rule Wednesday on whether Leonardo da Vinci's iconic Vitruvian Man drawing can be loaned to France's Louvre, bringing to a head a bitter cultural row.

The Venice court last week suspended the loan of the world famous artwork, due to appear later this month in an exhibition at the Paris museum to mark the 500th anniversary of the artist's death.

It did so after an Italian heritage group, Italia Nostra (Our Italy), filed a complaint saying the drawing was too fragile to travel.

The Vitruvian Man is kept in a climate-controlled vault in the Accademia Gallery in Venice and is rarely displayed to the public.

Dutch police were holding an Austrian man after the discovery of a father and his adult children who were believed to have stayed hidden in a remote farmhouse for years, officials said Wednesday.

Police said they discovered a father and five children aged between 18 and 25 on Monday and arrested a 58-year-old man -- not the father -- for failing to cooperate. They initially spoke of six children but later revised the number down.
