WATCH: Morning Joe pummels Bill Barr for letting Epstein commit suicide on his watch

Published

on

“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough ripped into both Attorney General Bill Barr and Donald Trump on Monday morning for not taking extraordinary measures to make sure that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself while being held in federal custody of human trafficking charges.

Addressing the multiple failures at the Metropolitan Correctional Center where Epstein was being held, the MSNBC host said the blame for not preventing the wealth manager’s suicide goes right to the top.

“If you’re the attorney general of the United States and they’re holding the most important prisoner in the world as far as testimony goes, you’re going to say, keep your eyes on him 24/7,” Scarborough ranted. “It’s pretty interesting that [9/11 attack architect] Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is still alive today. The United States government managed to keep Khalid Sheikh Mohammed alive. They managed to keep alive terrorists or terror suspects that they needed to testify or they needed information for the September 11th attacks alive.”

With panelist Mike Barnicle in agreement, Scarborough continued.

“That wasn’t that difficult and here, again, you’re talking about a man who had information on some of the most powerful people in this country over the past quarter-century and you can’t keep him alive?” he complained. “I mean, the attorney general should have bent over backwards given Donald Trump’s own past with Jeffrey Epstein, his own relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.”

“If the president had nothing to do worry about, then the president should have bent over backwards and the attorney general should have done the same to make sure this man stayed alive,” he concluded.

Corey Lewandowski may use Judiciary Committee hearing to launch New Hampshire Senate run

Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will appear before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday to answer questions about incidents outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller's report. But he may use the appearance as a way to launch his New Hampshire Senate run.

Axios reported Sunday that the former top aide to President Donald Trump is eager for a fiery exchange between him and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and other Democrats.

“Corey will use [the hearing] as part of the campaign. He will be confrontational to the Democrats. He will be totally loyal to Trump. And he will be playing to the right-wing of the party who need to unite behind him in a primary," said former New Hampshire Attorney General Thomas Rath.

Trump flip-flops on meeting with Iran with ‘no preconditions’– then blames it on the media

Published

on

President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.

"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.

In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.

“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”

Published

the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.
