An MSNBC legal analyst outlined the hypocrisy of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation during a panel discussion about President Donald Trump’s kids.
“My kids cannot buy a pack of Skittles in this country without having — with the blase attitude that Ivanka Trump walks around this Earth with,” Above the Law editor Elie Mystal told a panel on AM Joy Saturday. “I do not understand.”
Mystal was stunned that the Trump kids still have not been indicted, or even investigated, by the special counsel.
“I don’t understand how we’ve investigated these people for 22 months and nobody has asked these children a question?” the legal expert mused.
It’s hypocritical, Mystal suggested, the way “criminal justice is applied to everybody else in this country” but not, apparently, to Donald Trump and his family.
“When you are the top head of an organization, people understand that, if they squeeze your children, that is a way to get you to tell the truth,” he said. “And they put no, as far as I can tell, no pressure on these children.”
Giuliani henchmen showered Republican with cash — and Trump almost made him ambassador to Ukraine: report
Yet another bombshell report has shed new light on President Donald Trump's suspicious Ukraine policies.
"At the same time that Rudy Giuliani and his now-indicted pals were pushing for President Donald Trump to remove Amb. Marie Yovanovitch from her post in Ukraine, Trump administration officials were eyeing potential contenders to take over her job. One of the people in the mix, according to three sources familiar with the discussions, was Rep. Pete Sessions, a former Congressman who called for Yovanovitch’s firing," The Daily Beast reported Thursday night. "He is also a longtime ally of the former New York Mayor, and is believed to have taken millions of dollars from Giuliani’s indicted cronies."
Taylor Swift takes on former record label — and #IStandWithTaylor trends on Twitter
Taylor Swift on Thursday publicly reignited her battle with the heads of her former label, saying it is threatening to bar her from going through with an upcoming performance and Netflix documentary over her plans to re-record her early albums.
Earlier this year the superstar began feuding with industry mogul Scooter Braun over his purchase of her former label for more than a decade, the Nashville-based Big Machine, which gave him a majority stake in the master recordings of her first six albums.
Swift said she would begin re-recording her early albums to create copies she owns herself, saying her contract allows her to begin re-doing albums one through five in November 2020, when she plans to be back in the studio doing just that.
Israel launches air and missile strikes in the Gaza Strip despite ceasefire
Israel launched fresh strikes against Islamic Jihad targets in Gaza, the army said early Friday, weakening a ceasefire put in place after fighting this week killed 34 Palestinians in exchanges of fire.
The ceasefire began Thursday morning following two days of deadly violence in the Gaza Strip triggered by an Israeli strike on an Islamic Jihad commander.
But Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said in a WhatsApp message to reporters that new overnight strikes were under way on Islamic Jihad, the second most powerful Palestinian militant group in Gaza after Hamas.
"The IDF is currently striking Islamic Jihad terror targets in the Gaza Strip," it said.
