Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, legal analyst and Above the Law editor Elie Mystal said that Donald Trump is desperate to win re-election in 2020 or he can expect to be arrested immediately by investigators representing the Southern District of New York.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Mystal launched into a soliloquy about what the future holds for the embattled president.
“I hope it is not lost on people is that the Trump Organization, which appears to be a massive criminal front, is so small potatoes that if Trump hadn’t run for president, SDNY wouldn’t care,” he began.
“SDNY cares about stopping terrorism,” he continued before quipping, “Putting SDNY on the Trump investigation is like bringing in Sherlock Holmes to figure out who framed Roger Rabbit.”
“Now that SDNY is on it, they’re all going down,” he added. “The key thing from Michael Cohen’s testimony, besides all the information he laid out, he issued basically a warning to the rest of the people in the Trump Organization from the CFO Allen Weisselberg all the way down to the secretary: you lie for Trump, you’re going to get got.”
Mystal also noted that financial corruption charges likely to be filed against Trump have a statute of limitations of ten years and that Trump’s crimes that are being investigatyed date back to 2014.
He then added that, should Trump lose in 2020, he can expect to be cuffed by SDNY officials as soon as he departs the White House.

Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, former Donald Trump advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman backed up assertions in the book " A Very Stable Genius" that the president is prone to tantrums when he doesn't get his way and becomes abusive to staffers and cabinet members alike.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Omarosa -- who wrote an insider's account of life in the White House after she was unceremoniously fired -- said there was little in the new book that surprised her.
Digging into her Oval Office days, the former adviser and longtime Trump associate described the president's "zero to 200" screaming jags when displeased.
Ex-Bush aide admits GOP would have removed Obama if he did ‘one tenth of what Trump has done’
A former strategist for former President George W. Bush accused Republican lawmakers of hypocrisy on Sunday for for failing to honestly consider the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Matthew Dowd, a campaign strategist-turned-media-analyst, made the remarks in a tweet on Sunday.
"Deep in their hearts the Republicans in Congress know that if Obama had done one tenth of what President Trump has done they would have voted to impeach and convict him," Dowd wrote. "And Fox News would have been cheering them on. And Trump would have been pushing for it from the sidelines."

‘Opportunistic’ Trump has an ulterior motive for hyping Virginia gun rally on MLK day: MSNBC guest
During a panel discussion on MSNBC's "AM Joy," the Reverend Mark Thompson claimed that President Donald Trump is sending a message to his rabid base by hyping up a pro-gun rally in Virginia on Martin Luther King Day.
Addressing the rally to be held in Richmond, which has the entire state on edge and forced lawmakers to ban weapons at the event in the name of safety, Thompson told host Joy Reid it was accident that the president linked the rally to a day when Americans celebrate the life of the civil rights leader who was gunned down in 1968 in Memphis.
Asked about Trump's tweets about the rally, the reverend called them disgraceful.
