Giuliani can either flip on Trump or end up in jail with criminals he locked up as federal prosecutor

Published

An MSNBC panel on the future of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is facing multiple investigations into his business dealings and his work for President Donald Trump, led a former prosecutor to speculate whether the former U.S. Attorney wants to find himself locked up with hardened criminals he once put away.

Speaking with host Stephanie Ruhle, former homicide prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said Giuliani likely has much to divulge about Trump — including going back to when he was New York City’s mayor and Trump was still just a developer — to SDNY prosecutors to avoid jail himself.

Addressing Giuliani’s involvement in the Ukraine “quid pro quo” scandal that is engulfing the Trump administration, Kirschner said that and Rudy’s longtime relationship with Trump could yield a wealth of information to investigators.

“This is a conspiracy to defraud the United States by having a foreign country interfere in the upcoming presidential election,” Kirschner began. “Look. right now SDNY’s fiercely independent prosecutor’s office is engaged in a wide-ranging criminal investigation into Rudy Giuliani. I am hard-pressed to believe that they are not finding enough evidence to charge Rudy Giuliani. Then the question becomes: what does Rudy do? Does he flip  on the president?”

“I was really interested to see that now somewhat infamous comment by Giuliani that if he [Trump] tries to throw me under the bus, I have insurance,” he continued. “Let’s think: he was a U.S. Attorney in New York. He was mayor in New York for a combined 13 years. how much information could he have about dirt that Trump did in New York?”

“I don’t know,” host Ruhle protested. “You seem pretty excited about that but wouldn’t you think Michael Cohen would have a whole lot of incriminating evidence against the president and Michael is sitting in jail and the president is at Mar-a-Lago?”

“Do you think Rudy wants to sit in federal prison like Michael Cohen is with all those people he put there when he was U.S. Attorney?” the prosecutor persisted. “That’s not a hospitable environment for Rudy Giuliani. ”

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.

WATCH: Maddow hilariously recaps Trump’s ‘shenanigans in the Oval Office’ with the Russian foreign minister

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday examined President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian Federation Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov -- on the same day that the House of Representatives unveiled articles of impeachment against the commander-in-chief.

Following the meeting, Lavrov trolled Trump on the issues of foreign election interference and Trump's habit of revealing classified intelligence.

"Given that, given the way the president is being impeached for having done all those things to Ukraine in and way that undermined our alliance with them and specifically their fight against Russian aggression -- which has, you know, led to a five-year-long war in Ukraine -- I mean given the fact he's being impeached for undermining Ukraine in its war against Russia, this is heck of a day to choose to have the Russian foreign minister sitting on your lap in the Oval Office," Maddow said.
