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.”

Moderate Dem lawmaker tells CNN why Trump’s ‘appalling behavior’ changed his mind on impeachment
Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a moderate Democrat and a member of the centrist New Democrat Coalition, went on CNN on Tuesday to explain why he has changed his mind and now supports starting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
In an interview with CNN's John Berman, Himes said that Trump has regularly shown that he doesn't care about obeying the law, as evidenced by his decision to completely shrug off his own Office of Special Counsel's finding that adviser Kellyanne Conway has repeatedly violated the Hatch Act.
"Kellyanne Conway had clearly broken the law and she should be removed from office," Himes said. "And the president said, 'Ah heck, that doesn't matter.'"
9/11 first responder busts Trump for lying about helping them: ‘There’s no meeting’
Appearing in CNN's New Day, two New York City first responders trashed Congress for its foot-dragging over providing funding to help those afflicted by illnesses directly related from the 9/11 attack.
Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, 9/11 first responder John Feal first took shots at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) before getting around to recent comments made by President Donald Trump where he claimed he was having a meeting with representatives of the firefighters and police this week.
In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, the president noted the work being done by former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart to help get legislation pushed through, and said that he is taking a personal interest in the 9/11 victims' plight.
