Meet The Federal Prosecutor Who Scares Trump More Than Mueller | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC

  • Published on:  1/9/2019
  • This week’s indictment of the Russian lawyer who met with Paul Manafort and Trump’s family members marks the first time that two people from the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, one on the Trump side and one on the Russia side, have been indicted by Federal Prosecutors. MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber, lays out how the office that issued the latest indictment, the Southern District of New York, has a uniquely aggressive history and why it could be problematic for Trump. Melber also reports on why it looks like Trump tried to control the office soon after his election and appears to have failed. Former U.S. Attorney who headed the SDNY, David Kelley, joins Melber exclusively for a wide-ranging interview and dishes on what he believes the connections between the Office and the Mueller probe may be.» Subscribe to MSNBC: MSNBC is the premier destination for in-depth analysis of daily headlines, insightful political commentary and informed perspectives.

    Trump definitely had lots of illegal help to win the presidency. This man does not have the decency to be called President. A mod person cannot be President. He has a lot of poor people fooled but not for long. Trump does not hide the fact his desire to become a dictator. We don't have those in America. So why not move? Take your whole mafia family with you. You will not reach your goal in America.

    This is why the laws need to also apply to Donald Trump and people need to start doing their jobs and realize the oath that they took to uphold the law regardless of who trump is and until this happens ,public mistrust will continue to rise.

    Who require people that work for you needs to take a pledge of loyalty, threatens with government shutdowns, then execute the shutdown, threatens with that it could last for years, indifferent to the pain and suffering he is causing to his people, if he do not get his wall legacy. He then threatens with national emergency, just because he can? To get his phallus wall erected at the southern border, carrying his name? This is like taken out from a crime book or movie about a mobster and his crime fam...

    Anyone starting to think that this Shutdown/Wall fight ... is more about smoke and mirrors to keep the attention off of the Mueller probe? Hard to feel any different right now.

    @ecidemon Don’t forget Flynn may well have highly incriminating evidence about VPOTUS Mike Pence, who claimed that Flynn misled him about Kislyak. Perhaps Pence wasn’t as clueless as he claims. And we know a sitting VP can be indicted and convicted. Recall Agnew.

    New Yorkers know Trump for the fraud and con-artist that he is. That's why Trump lost in NY during the election. He couldn't even win the district that he was born and raised in.

    @Kahlihah Wright. I'm assuming you're not a hypocrite so i guess its also a fair assumption you were really happy that George W. Bush defeated Al Gore since gore lost his home state where people know him best. Im just applying your. Comment evenly.
