MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said President Donald Trump must be aware by now that he could have already been secretly indicted in one of the many investigations into nearly every aspect of his life.
If the president’s lawyers hadn’t convinced him that he faced significant legal risk, the “Morning Joe” co-host said Trump might have been forced to confront the truth watching his favorite cable TV network.
“Meanwhile, Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano is laying out quite a scenario after the president was implicated in the case of his former fixer and lawyer Michael Cohen,” she said. “Napolitano suggests the president, who’s been identified in open court as Individual-1 could already be indicted for directing Cohen to break election law by paying off two women to keep his alleged affairs secret.”
Napolitano told Fox News there was ample evidence to indict the president, and he said those charges might already have been secretly filed — and brought after Trump left the White House.
“You know it’s bad when you’ve lost Fox News,” Brzezinski said.
BUSTED: Leaked drug exec emails showed them encouraging opioid abuse to the point people would eat them ‘like Doritos’
On Friday, the Washington Post published excerpts from a damning series of emails released in a landmark case in Cleveland around the irresponsibility of drug manufacturers and suppliers in contributing to the opioid crisis.
In one email exchange, Victor Borelli, an account manager for pharmaceuticals corporation Mallinckrodt, told KeySource Medical vice president Steve Cochrane that 1,200 bottles of 30mg Oxycodone tablets had been shipped, to which Cochrane replied, "Keep 'em comin'! Flyin' out of there. It's like people are addicted to these things or something. Oh, wait, people are..." and Borelli responded, "Just like Doritos keep eating. We'll make more."
Here’s the ugly racist history behind tipping — and how it still persists today
On Saturday, writing for Politico, minister and civil rights activist Rev. Dr. William Barber applauded House Democrats' plans to not only raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, but eliminate the much lower "tipped wage" of $2.13 an hour and require tipped workers to also be paid at least the minimum.
This is important, wrote Barber, because the roots of businesses forcing their workers to rely on tips for a proper wage is deeply rooted in America's history of racial tension.
Black GOP strategist called on the carpet by Joy Reid for trying to sidestep Trump’s racist rally as ’empowering’ voters
An "AM Joy" panel on MSNBC descended into talking over each other as host Joy Reid confronted a black GOP consultant over Donald Trump's racist rally in North Carolina.
Presenting the conservative point of view, Republican strategist Lenny McAllister was asked point-blank by the host, "Lenny, hold on a second, because you as a man of color yourself -- do you feel comfortable in a party that does rallies like that?"
McAllister pushed back saying he had walked away from just those type of events, before admitting, "To the greater point. They're using racism as an avenue through which people feel empowered, they lend you the loyalty, they give you the vote. What Republicans need to do is continue to empower people, but not by using racism and not by using phobia."
