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. ”

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
