CNN legal analyst Shan Wu said on Monday that the White House is ‘completely unprepared’ to come up with a coherent strategy to respond to the Mueller probe, and that an ‘undisciplined’ President Trump ‘creates new witnesses’ against him on a daily basis.
Wu said the president’s “plan to wing it” would not save him from the various crises engulfing his administration, saying “the only plan they ever seemed to have had is misdirection and denial.”
“The southern district is accusing the president by agreeing with Cohen,” Wu said, adding that the administration was “completely unprepared” to deal with the fallout from the verdict. “It has demonstrated time and time again they don’t have the discipline.”
“Maybe it’s all coming from the top, the president doesn’t listen,” Wu said. “They have no structure, no discipline. They couldn’t possibly run a war room. Their entire operation is constantly at war, they’re under siege 24/7.”
“If you look at the number of people who have been interviewed by the special counsel’s office, that tells you something,” he continued, saying the president was his own worst enemy. “It tells you they have no control over who becomes a witness. The president creates new witnesses against himself every single day.”

Heather Heyer’s mom says things have gotten worse since Charlottesville — but she has a solution
CNN's Ana Cabrera on Saturday interviewed Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer. Her daughter was murdered by a white nationalist terrorist during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
"When you watch what’s happening in Portland, thankfully everything right now is peaceful, but does it sort of give you that knee-jerk reaction where your hackles kind of go up, just given everything your family has been through?" Cabrera asked.
"My hackles don’t really go down anymore," Bro replied. "I am constantly tracking these things around the country as they happen. Yeah, I think after two years ago, mine will never completely go down again."
