Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called for Attorney General William Barr to lose his law license for lying to Congress.

The “Morning Joe” host conceded that impeachment for President Donald Trump was a long and politically fraught process, but he said there’s a simpler remedy for Barr’s misconduct.

“I tell you something that could be done more quickly and more effectively is looking back at what happened with Bill Clinton,” Scarborough said. “Yes, Bill Clinton got impeached, but you know what else? He got disbarred from the Arkansas Supreme Court for committing perjury.”

“You have the attorney general of the United States of America who has committed perjury — it’s on tape,” he added.

Scarborough said the attorney general should also be disbarred.

“The truth is out there, the evidence is out there and as a certain New York City broadcasting legend said, let’s go to tape,” Scarborough said. “I mean, that’s what they should do. He’s unworthy to be attorney general of the United States, and he is unworthy of even being an officer of the court because he is lying every day.”

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
