Morning Joe panel scorches Barr investigator Durham as a ‘PR hack for a failed reality TV show host’

Published

on

An extensive segment on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday morning discussing Attorney General Bill Barr dismissing his own department’s inspector general report showing no “Deep State” conspiracy against Donald Trump, turned to Barr’s hand-selected investigator John Durham’s intrusive statement late in the day.

After Barr misrepresented facts in what is now known as the “Horowitz Report,” Durham also undercut it by saying his own brief investigation — to date, — shows a different set of facts.

With legal experts saying Durham’s comments were a breach of Justice Department protocols during an ongoing investigation, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and his panel rained hell down on the U.S. Attorney and AG Barr.

“Donald Trump asked several years ago, where’s my Roy Cohen?” host Scarborough raged. “Well, he found him.”

“It’s incredible, you have the attorney general of the United States and a hand-picked prosecutor not acting as legal guardians of our Constitution, legal conservators,” he continued. “You actually have them acting as basically a latter-day Scaramucci or a latter-day Sarah Huckabee Sanders where they aren’t officers of the court. When you put out a press release like that, you’re nothing more than a hack, you’re a PR hack for a failed reality TV show host whose branding exercise went horribly wrong and got him elected president of the United States.”

“But that’s what Durham chose to do yesterday, there was no legal reason for him to put out any statement after an inspector general’s report other than because he’s now a PR hack for a failed reality TV show host,” he added.

In a pairing of tweets, Trump charged, "The Impeachment Hoax is a massive election interference the likes of which has never been seen before. In just two hours the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have seen their phony case absolutely shredded. Shifty is now exposed for illegally making up my phone call, & more!" before adding, "Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!"

Trump could also have been impeached for war crimes, assassinations and corruption: Law professor

Published

on

Democratic lawmakers are continuing to lay out their case for removing the president from office in the final day of opening arguments by Democrats in the historic impeachment trial of President Trump. Republicans will begin their opening arguments on Saturday. The Senate trial comes a month after the House impeached Trump for withholding congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine as part of an effort to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Trump’s political rival, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. On Thursday, House impeachment manager Jerrold Nadler made the case that a president can be impeached for noncriminal activity. During another part of Thursday’s proceedings, House impeachment manager Congressmember Sylvia Garcia relied on polls by Fox News to make the case that President Trump decided to target Joe Biden after polls showed the former vice president could beat Trump in 2020. For more on the impeachment trial, we’re joined by Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and the former president of the National Lawyers Guild. Her most recent book is “Drones and Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral, and Geopolitical Issues.”
