A former Southern District of New York prosecutor said it appears that Donald Trump has spent much of his life getting away with criminal activity — but that her old employer is onto him.
Mimi Rocah, an MSNBC analyst and former assistant U.S. Attorney for the SDNY, said Saturday morning that the tree of investigations emanating from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe creates a “huge” liability for Trump.
Last week, reports emerged that the SDNY has subpoenaed Trump’s inaugural committee on suspicion of money laundering and making false statements.
Investigators have gotten — and in some cases “been handed” — multiple leads from Mueller, Rocah noted, and will likely be able to “do wonders” with them.
“The way I would look at it, he seems like he and many people around him have probably gotten away with a lifetime of crime,” the former prosecutor said.
With good investigators putting those potential crimes under a “microscope,” Rocah added, that wrongdoing is “going to come back” to him.
Social media responds to Trump’s ‘go back’ tweet with viral hashtags #TrumpIsARacist and #RacistInChief
President Donald Trump began Sunday by saying that four Congresswomen of color should go back to their country of origin before they try to be American officials. The greatest problem is that all of the women are Americans, three of which are naturalized. Both cable news and social media was filled with accusations about Trump's racism, prompting #TrumpIsARacist and #RacistInChief to trend on Twitter across the nation.
Trump employed the "I know you are but what am I" defense, saying that the Democrats are the real racists. It's a strategy he's tried with accusations of "fake news" in the past and it's proven to be successful in feeding his supporters the response lines.
Trump was manipulated into choosing Mike Pence as VP — especially by Kellyanne: new tell-all book
According to the excerpts of the new tell-all book on the administration, President Donald Trump was essentially manipulated by multiple staffers, into picking Mike Pence as his running mate.
Here’s how lies and hypocrisy took over the Republican Party and hit an all-time high
Last week, before Trump’s buffoonish cave on his attempt to hijack the census, Greg Sargent wrote about Attorney General William Barr’s emerging role as Trump’s enabler in undermining the rule of law — first in the census case, then in the challenge to the Affordable Care Act.
The connection between the two is straightforward, according to University of Michigan law professor Nicholas Bagley. “In both, Barr directed his lawyers to make bad-faith arguments, just because Trump said so,” Bagley told Sargent. “That’s a blow to the integrity of the Justice Department and a threat to the rule of law.”
