MSNBC host Ari Melber mused that President Donald Trump was pleased with Corey Lewandowski’s appearance before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday. However, Melber couldn’t figure out why.
During his hearing, Lewandowski refused to answer questions about his personal conversations with the president. He declared some sort of non-existent personal privilege, which isn’t actually a legal privilege. So when special counsel Robert Mueller asked questions, Lewandowski told the truth. When he was asked to clarify if his answers were truthful, Lewandowski said that they were.
“Lewandowski tried to convince candidate Trump throughout the whole campaign that he could try to have it both ways,” said Melber. “Lie in public, show Donald Trump that he was lying for him, but also hide from Donald Trump that he ultimately, yes, told Mueller the truth. To put in Donald Trump’s terms, that he ratted on him.”

Michael Flynn’s attorney claims ‘executive privilege’ — then demands judge recuse himself
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn's lawyers are trying a new tactic to try and get rid of the judge who accepted the guilty plea last year and began the sentencing phase of the trial.
The moment came after Flynn's lawyer, Sidney Powell revealed that she has spoken to the president about Flynn's case, but not before she tried to invoke executive privilege without being an executive, former Army prosecutor Glenn Kirschner tweeted. Powell never had a problem with Judge Sullivan until today. She did, however, write a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr telling him to tell the prosecutors to withdraw the charges of Flynn.
