Cohen pal Deutsch claims new evidence proves Trump obstructed justice — just last week on Fox News

Published

on

MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch offered evidence that President Donald Trump intimidated a witness against him while speaking on live television.

The “Morning Joe” contributor offered new details Friday about the president’s threat on Fox News against his former attorney Michael Cohen, who is friends with Deutsch.

“I’ll tell you why it’s obstruction,” Deutsch said. “I was on the phone with him, and he was like, ‘I’m not going to testify, they’re going after my family.'”

Cohen has agreed to testify Feb. 7 before Congress, but his attorney said the former Trump Organization lawyer may cancel after Trump threatened to investigate Cohen’s father-in-law, although he could not recall his name.

“There is nothing he wouldn’t do,” Deutsch said about the president. “You saw it on display when we went after his father-in-law, so this is the tip, tip, tip of the iceberg of a president that is going down hard.”

Deutsch said he believed Cohen would testify, in spite of the president’s threats, but he did not think he would be allowed to tell investigators about a bombshell report showing that Trump directed his former attorney to lie to Congress about his Moscow business dealings.

“There is nothing he can answer as it pertains to the Russia investigation,” Deutsch said, adding that special counsel Robert Mueller would limit his testimony. “That does not mean that’s not going to be must-see TV, and I think a lot of people’s heads are going to be spun in many, many, many circles.”

He said the BuzzFeed report was only a small detail in a sprawling investigation.

“Let’s remember this is one nugget,” Deutsch said. “Let’s think about 70 hours of Michael speaking. Let’s think about the dozens of hours of Hope Hicks, and none of these people are going to be lying to Bob Mueller to save their own hide. It’s going to be stunning, this level of lying and obstruction.”

Iran says seized British-flagged tanker ‘free’ to leave

Published

Iran said on Monday that a British-flagged oil tanker is "free" to leave more than two months after it was seized in the Gulf.

"The legal process has finished and based on that the conditions for letting the oil tanker go free have been fulfilled and the oil tanker can move," government spokesman Ali Rabiei told a news conference.

He did not specify when the Swedish-owned vessel would be allowed to set sail.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps surrounded the Stena Impero with attack boats before rappelling onto the deck of the tanker in the Strait of Hormuz on July 19.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe fact-checks Trump’s ‘slimy’ lies about Biden: ‘He’s rigging the election!’

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough threw cold water on President Donald Trump's accusations against Joe Biden, as the Ukraine scandal continues to widen.

The "Morning Joe" host ripped the president for pressuring Ukraine's president to dig up dirt on Biden and then leaning on states to cancel Republican primaries to snuff out three challengers' campaigns.

"You talk about an inside game, rigging the process, and we talked about how Donald Trump is rigging the process on the Republican side to make sure that as many states as possible cancel democratic elections for the primary," Scarborough said. "I mean, he's learning from Vladimir Putin the way you get 100 percent of the vote is you just cancel the elections, and that's what Donald Trump is getting Republican operatives to do across the country."
