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.”

DOJ policy blocking Trump from being indicted ‘factored into’ the end of the Stormy Daniels case: report
Federal prosecutors decided to close the investigation into the 2016 criminal hush money payment to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal that benefitted the Trump campaign because, in part, of the policy that prevents the indictment of a sitting president, according to a new report from USA Today citing an anonymous source.
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.

Trump’s Pentagon spokeswoman forced staff to run errands — and even help her adopt a foster child: report
On Thursday, the Department of Defense Inspector General released a scathing report on ex-Pentagon spokesperson Dana White, the result of an investigation that began last year following ethics complaints from her staff.
The IG concluded that White used federal staffers to help her run personal errands both during and outside of work hours. Officials were forced to book her personal travel, deliver lunch and snacks to her office, act as her chauffeur, handle her dry cleaning, and book a makeup artist to come to her house.
