Donald Trump, Jr. and senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump are facing “real danger areas” of criminal liability, career prosecutor Glenn Kirshner explained on MSNBC on Saturday.
Kirschner worked with special prosecutor Robert Mueller and was the chief of homicide prosecution at the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, DC.
“Is there legal jeopardy in your mind?” anchor Alex Witt asked. “Could there be for Don Jr. and potentially Ivanka?”
“There could be, Alex,” Kirschner replied.
“When it comes to the kids, Ivanka and Don Jr., I think there are a couple of real danger areas, because we heard that Michael Cohen lied to Congress about, among other things, keeping the kids — keeping Donald Trump’s kids informed about what was going on on this potential deal with Russia,” he explained.
“And, you know, that is really dangerous, because what did we come to learn some months ago? Michael Cohen is not above surreptitiously tape recording conversations,” he continued.
“When I heard his plea included information about keeping Donald Trump’s kids up to speed, I have to say — we’ve heard this before — but I was thinking to myself, ‘lordy, I hope there are tapes‘ because we don’t know what Michael Cohen has been taping but we may hear more about that in the future,” he concluded.
