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

Published

on

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.

Democrats in Virginia are fired up as they gathered in Richmond for their annual gala dinner.

Political analysts believe the Democratic Party of Virginia has a good chance to win control of the state legislature in 2019's election, before setting their sights on the Commonwealth continuing its recent trend of voting Democratic in presidential elections.

Patrick Wilson, a political reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, attended the event.

He reported that Democrats were so "noisy" that it was hard to hear the speakers, which include presidential candidates Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff

Published

on

Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?

Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.

The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."

There's little mystery about how the night will go down.

Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.

After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.

"And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."

Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
