Reacting to a bombshell report from the Washington Post that the Department of Justice has evidence that employees at Mar-a-Lago engaged in a "dress rehearsal" where they moved sensitive documents before his office receipt of a May 2022 subpoena, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough suggested that Donald Trump knows the DOJ has him cornered.
As the Post reported, "Taken together, the new details of the classified-documents investigation suggest a greater breadth and specificity to the instances of possible obstruction found by the FBI and Justice Department than have been previously reported. It also broadens the timeline of possible obstruction episodes that investigators are examining — a period stretching from events at Mar-a-Lago before the subpoena to the period after the FBI search there on Aug. 8."
During the "Morning Joe" panel on the report, with the Post's Perry Stein filling in the details, the MSNBC host also noted that Trump reportedly left the documents sitting about where anyone could see them.
"Donald Trump understands he's in serious trouble here," the MSNBC host told the panel.

"And when you have a judge in this case that has already pierced the attorney/client privilege because -- well, the only time a judge can do that is when they believe a crime may have been committed through that attorney/client privilege. -- at that point, you get this information about the boxes being moved the day before the DOJ and FBI come down."
'Donald Trump does understand, has to understand, and everybody around him has to understand, this is not going to end well for him or people that are close to him," he added.
