President Donald Trump’s cover-up of wrongdoing is “about to crumble” a former federal prosecutor explained on MSNBC.
MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner, who was a career federal prosecutor in the DC U.S. Attorney’s office, was interviewed by Chris Matthews on “Hardball.”
“Do you wonder what he is doing right now, day-to-day, to keep the empire afloat?” Matthews asked. “I mean, his kids can’t handle it. Who is keeping this house of cards with the billions of dollars potentially up in the air based on credit from God knows who?”
“No clue,” he replied. “And I don’t know if it’s millions of dollars up in the air, maybe it’s thousands of dollars, but it’s borrowed money and may be dirty money.”
He offered his thoughts on the legal cases moving against Trump.
“When Congressman [Eric] Swalwell said now the House of Representatives is winning. That’s an understatement,” he said. “It has been a blowout.”
“It has been a blowout in federal court in DC,” he observed. “What I really find perhaps most remarkable and most heartening now — is not just that people will get the records, his Capital One and Deutsche Bank records and his accounting firm Mazar records, but they are going get it, I believe, at lightning speed.”
“The reason is, the courts I think have been dying to get their hands on this. Now they have their hands on it,” he explained.
“Judge Metha ruled in six days. You know what Judge [Edgardo] Ramos did? He said, ‘You know what, I heard your arguments, give me 10 minutes,'” he continued. “House, you win, Trump, you lose, next.”
“We are talking a lot about a cover-up. The cover-up is about to crumble,” Kirschner predicted.
Why I’m waging info warfare against the GOP while most Democrats still prefer to ‘go high’ and lose
The ground shifted under Democrats during the 2016 election, but many refuse to acknowledge just how, or in what direction. Some are still content to lose close elections gracefully, even when the stakes for American democracy are the highest they have ever been. Others are so bent on proving that their electoral strategy is sound that they refuse to acknowledge Mark Zuckerberg has broken the traditional models of voter persuasion.
Nevertheless, a small group of Democratic operatives is no longer afraid to get their hands dirty. I am one of them.
I never intended to become a political operative. I wasn’t even thinking about the possibility when I set out to affect the 2017 special election for the US Senate in Alabama. I wanted to push back against the social media shenanigans that had helped elect Donald Trump and gather some data on their relative effectiveness because we were debating the impact of these tactics in a total vacuum of hard evidence either way. So when a documentarian recently asked me what it felt like to be a “political operative,” I was momentarily stunned by the realization that I had accidentally carved out a new career in white hat ratf*kery.
WATCH: Klobuchar uses Trump’s own intel advisors to blast GOP’s inaction on election security
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), a 2020 presidential candidate, blasted her Republican colleagues on the Senate floor Tuesday morning over an election security bill.
Klobuchar wants to attach the legislation, known as the Secure Elections Act, to a defense spending bill. But the move faces opposition from GOP leadership and the White House.
“We know one thing, and who do we know it from? We know it from the president’s own national intelligence director, we know it from his FBI director, we know it from all of his security leaders, and that is that Russia invaded our democracy,” Klobuchar said.
Conservative writer warns Democrats all the ways they could blow it in 2020
On Tuesday, Never Trump conservative and The Bulwark editor Charlie Sykes wrote an editorial in Politico warning that Democrats could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2020 — and urged them to not do anything foolish.
"Donald Trump remains historically unpopular because the past three years have cemented the public’s image of the president as a deeply dishonest, erratic, narcissistic, Twitter-addicted bully. As a result, a stunning 57 percent of voters say they will definitely not vote to reelect him next year and he trails Democratic challengers in key states," wrote Sykes.
