Harry Litman, a former U.S. Attorney and Deputy Assistant Attorney General, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Monday that the latest revelations surrounding the Trump Tower Moscow project potentially spell big trouble for President Donald Trump’s children.
During a panel discussion about Trump Tower Moscow, Mitchell asked Litman what he made of the fact that Trump was praising Russian President Vladimir Putin and proposing a Russia-friendly foreign policy during the 2016 presidential campaign even as he was negotiating to develop a major property on Russian soil.
“How does he get away with this politically?” Mitchell wondered.
“Boy, you tell me,” Litman responded. “There are so many events — you know, a couple dozen — that now look so different in the retrospective look, knowing that he was not just trying to feather his nest, this was going to be his biggest project ever.”
Given the past involvement of the Trump family in working on the project, Litman continued, the president should be very nervous about his children being in legal hot water.
“By the way, [this] deeply implicates both Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump,” he said. “Donald Trump Jr., in particular… may be very exposed now to criminal liability.”

Black Pennsylvania Trump voter wonders if he’s still welcome in the GOP
Tuesday, CNN released interviews with Texas Trump supporters who defended his racist attacks on four Congresswomen of color. Wednesday night, Van Jones showed his panel of supporters of both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama. But things got tense when a Black Trump supporter was asked about the president's racially charged statements.
Two men, one white one Black, in the group said they supported Trump and probably would again because business was good. Two women in the group lamented that Trump's racism was hurtful for the country.
"I just go back to values," the older women said. "I value treating people with dignity. And if there is anything that is incongruent with those values, then I'm not for that. So I'm not going to put profit over my values."
