A Manhattan criminal defense attorney bashed President Donald Trump and his cronies for prematurely celebrating the “no collusion” findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
MSNBC host Kendis Gibson noted that Trump has called Mueller’s investigation a “fishing expedition” — and caused lawyer Randy Zelin to point out that the other probes into his alleged wrongdoing — especially in his and the president’s shared backyard — are still ongoing and could still hurt him.
“Fine, then what do you have to say about the Southern District [of New York], which ain’t a fishing expedition?” Zelin mused.
“You have Michael Cohen, who’s already pleaded guilty, you have evidence of campaign finance violations, you have investigations into, now, Trump Organization business dealings, insurance fraud, tax fraud, all kinds of fraud which are unrelated to the Russia investigation,” the attorney declared. “So how does the Mueller report extricate the president from his problems?”
Gibson asked Zelin if he would be celebrating with the president if he were “down there in Mar-a-Lago,” to which the attorney whose office sits adjacent to Trump Tower replied, “I would not.”

‘He believes he’s a king and a dictator’: Ex-GOP congressman backs impeaching ‘unfit conman’ Trump
President Donald Trump was blasted on MSNBC on Saturday by a former Republican congressman for being an "unfit conman."
Rev. Al Sharpton interviewed former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) about a recent New York Times op-ed he wrote calling for Trump to face a primary challenge from the right.
"There’s a strong case for President Trump to face a Republican primary challenger," Walsh wrote. "I know a thing or two about insurgencies. I entered Congress in 2011 as an insurgent Tea Party Republican."
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."
