On Thursday, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace examined how corruption became the Trump’s “family business” and the extent to which the ir legal liability may have motivated the ouster of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“What’s going to happen to the president’s son?” Wallace asked. “According to Politico, quote, ‘Donald Trump Jr. has told friends in recent weeks that he believes he could be indicted, according to one of those people.'”
“On top of that report, Gab Sherman from Vanity Fair goes a bit further,” Wallace continued. “Three sources tell him junior has been telling friends it could happen this week.”
“It points to the peril the president has placed his own family — in the campaign and in the presidency — he made a choice to bring them into his world to rely on them, to bring them into the highest levels of the campaign and now they’re on the hook for what happened in that campaign,” noted New York Times political reporter Nick Confessore .
“There are four families with two generations ensnared in the Mueller probe,” Wallace noted.
“You’ve got Manafort and his son-in-law. Flynn and his son. Jared … son-in-law of Donald Trump,” she noted. “And Trump and Donald Trump Jr.”
“It’s unbelievable these corrupt political practices became a family business,” Wallace noted.
