‘They remain in federal custody’: SDNY tells Maddow that Giuliani henchmen are still locked up

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Monday reported at the beginning of her show that two associates of Rudy Giuliani had been released on $1 million bail.

The host had started her show by citing a Wall Street Journal report that Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, “were released on $1 million bonds and haven’t yet entered pleas. They are scheduled to appear in federal court in Manhattan on Thursday.”

But at the end of her show, Maddow issued a correction.

“We are just about done for tonight, but I have to make a correction before we go. This is interesting. At the top of the show I cited the Wall Street Journal reported that Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman had been released on million dollars bail,” Maddow said. “That said, it turns out not to be correct.”

“We are told by the Southern District of New York — just moments ago — that despite the fact they have had the conditions for their bail set, they are not out,” Maddow reported.

She read a statement from prosecutors.

“They haven’t met the requirements of their bail. They remain in federal custody,” SDNY spokesperson Nick Biase said.

Maddow found the statement to be “intriguing.”

“We never get a call from SDNY,” Maddow noted. “Getting a call from them in the middle of the show was like, okay, got it.”

"The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.
