Morning Joe incinerates Ken Starr’s ‘pious’ Trump impeachment defense: ‘Do you know who you are?’

Published

on

“Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday criticized former Whitewater special prosecutor Ken Starr after he delivered a solemn lecture during President Donald Trump’s Senate trial about American lawmakers impeaching presidents too frequently.

As Scarborough explained, this was particularly rich coming from Starr, whose impeachment report against former President Bill Clinton included detailed accounts of oral sex between Clinton and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

He also slammed Starr for arguing that no president should ever be impeached for abuse of power.

“It is preposterous, especially on the legal merits, saying that there is no way that a president can be impeached because of abuse of power when he called that ‘the capstone’ of his impeachment argument against Bill Clinton,” Scarborough said.

Guest Benjamin Wittes concurred with Scarborough’s assessment and told him that a colleague watching Starr’s opening statement on Monday turned to him and said, “Does Ken Starr know he’s Ken Starr?”

“There was so little self-awareness in that pious presentation of the dangers of hyperactive impeachment,” he said. “And you kind of watch that saying, ‘Do you know who you are in this conversation? Do you have any understanding of the role you played?’ If there’s a single person in the country who stands for defining impeachment down, it is Ken Starr.”

Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Published

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good.
