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.
Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800
As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.
Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:
Elizabeth Warren accuses Congress of complicity in Trump’s continued abuses
Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused the U.S. Congress of complicity in President Donald Trump's continued abuse of power late Friday, after reports surfaced of his alleged attempts to solicit foreign meddling in the 2020 presidential election, and reiterated her demand that Democrats use their majority in the House to pursue impeachment.
Warren's tweeted statement came hours after the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's opposition to a Ukrainian prosecutor in 2016.
