MSNBC anchor predicts Robert Mueller will let Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump, Jr. avoid prison if their dad resigns

Published

Special counsel Robert Mueller may cut a deal for President Donald Trump to resign from office in return for nonprosecution of Donald Trump, Jr. and Ivanka Trump.

MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews laid down how Trump could “leverage the office” to keep his eldest children out of prison.

“Let me finish tonight with how the Mueller investigation could end,” Matthews said. “Given the toughness Bob Mueller is showing, it looks like he would have no hesitation indicting anyone he finds guilty in his path.”

“If you did the crime, you’re going to do the time — that’s unless you’re ready to turn state’s evidence against the kingpin Donald Trump,” he noted. “Which brings us to a pair of Mueller subjects who lack that option — Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump.”

“The president’s children stand right in the line of Mueller’s investigative progress — they stand as the next dominos to fall,” he continued.

“But therein lies the problem, where earlier Mueller subjects have given Trump up, these two lack the option to do that,” he said. “They can hardly testify against their father.”

“Which brings the country to the reckoning. If the prosecutor will not be stopped and the kids will not fall to him, we see the president’s adult children heading to prison,” he continued.

“But what if the prosecutor were to offer the president an alternative, what if he were to say he would let the children walk if the old man does the same?” Matthews wondered. “They get to go scot-free if he’s willing to take the [Spiro] Agnew way out.”

“That would mean giving up the presidency in exchange for acquittals all around, not just for himself, but for his kids,” he explained.

Legal experts blast tactics of ‘secretly-funded’ gang pushing voter suppression in 2020 election

Published

Two leading legal experts warned of a new threat to America's democracy.

Dahlia Lithwick and Prof. Richard Hasan teamed up to write their warning for Slate.

"The right-wing legal network spawned by the Federalist Society has finally gone full Trumpian. It has morphed from a group of apparently principled conservatives debating high-minded theories of legal interpretation, into a secretly-funded cabal spouting conspiracy theories such as the myth of widespread voter fraud," they wrote.

Dr. Fauci emotionally recounts his close relationship with the late AIDS activist Larry Kramer

Published

Dr. Anthony Fauci has burst on to the national stage as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic, but his work as a public health official extends back decades. He was a key figure in the fight against HIV/AIDS, and in an interview on PBS NewsHour on Wednesday, he offered a personal and emotional glimpse into that history.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that Larry Kramer, a famed writer and influential AIDS activist, had died at age 84. PBS host Judy Woodroof noted that Fauci and Kramer had been friends.

"In the beginning of the AIDS outbreak in the 1980s, the two of you had a pretty contentious relationship," Woodroof said. "But that changed over time."

REVEALED: An Obama-era plan to protect medical workers in a pandemic was thwarted under Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that his Democratic predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama, left him ill-prepared to handle a major health crisis when, in fact, Obama’s administration left behind a comprehensive pandemic game plan that included a 69-page playbook. But Trump’s administration abandoned those Obama-era recommendations. On top of that, National Public Radio’s Brian Mann is reporting that Trump’s administration, in 2017, “stopped work on new federal regulations that would have forced the health care industry to prepare for an airborne infectious disease pandemic such as COVID-19.”
