Donald Trump White House Aides Lawyer-Up In Face Of Robert Mueller Query | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


>>> IT'S SO SAD WHEN LAWYERS START HAVING LAWYERS DONALD TRUMP'S PERSONAL ATTORNEY GOT HIS OWN ATTORNEY FOR THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION

THEN DONALD TRUMP'S ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS HIRED HIS OWN ATTORNEY FOR THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION NOW THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL WHICH IS THE WHITE HOUSE'S TOP LAWYER, HE HAS ALSO RETAINED HIS OWN PERSONAL LAWYER FOR THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION A LOT OF LAWYERS HAVING LAWYERS WE LEARNED FRIDAY THAT DON MCGANN IS ONE OF SIX RUSSIA WANTS TO QUESTION AND NOW SURE AS A BRUISE FOLLOWS A BAD FALL, WE HAVE NEWS DON HAD TO GET HIS OWN LAWYER HE'S HIRED A HIGH-POWERED WASHINGTON LAWYER TO REPRESENT HIM ON THE RUSSIA ISSUE

AND SO HAVE TWO OTHER PEOPLE ON ROBERT MUELLER'S REPORTED INTERVIEW LIST REINCE PRIEBUS AND COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR HOPE HICKS DON, HOPE HICKS HAVE HIRED THEIR OWN EXPENSIVE WASHINGTON LAWYERS NOW ON RUSSIA AND YOU KNOW, WHEN THE SPECIAL COUNSEL WANTS TO ENTER YOU YOU, YOU PROBABLY WANT TO GET A LAWYER NO MATTER WHAT IF YOU EXPECT A FRIENDLY CHAT ABOUT THE ROSOTO RECIPE, YOU PROBABLY STILL WANT LEGAL ADVICE IF YOU TALK TO THE SPECIAL COUNSEL NO MATTER WHAT WHAT IS THE SPECIAL COUNSEL GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT? WE'RE NOT SURE BUT BASED ON REPORTING FROM "THE WASHINGTON POST

" THE SPECIAL COUNSEL APPEARS TO BE INTERESTED IN THE CRAFTING OF THE FALSE STATEMENT ABOUT THE TRUMP TOWER MEETING THAT INVOLVED DONALD TRUMP JUNIOR, PAUL MANMANAFORT THAT WAS FALSELY EXPLAINED BY THE WHITE HOUSE AS BEING JUST ABOUT ADOPTIONS THE SPECIAL COUNSEL ALSO APPEARS TO BE INTERESTED IN THE FIRING OF FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY WHICH WAS ALSO APPARENTLY FALSELY EXPLAINED BY THE WHITE HOUSE AS BEING THE PRODUCT OF A JUSTICE DEPARTMENT INTERNAL PROCESS WHILE EVEN THE PRESIDENT ADMITS THAT ISN'T WHY HE FIRED JAMES COMEY SPECIAL COUNSEL APPEARS TO BE INTERESTED IN THE HANDLING OF FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR MIKE FLYNN WHO RESIGNED AFTER HAVING LIED WITH CONTACTS WITH RUSSIAN OFFICIALS AND WHOSE CONTACTS WERE FALSELY EXPLAINED BY THE WHITE HOUSE AT THE TIME SO THERE IS A LOT OF FALSE STATEMENTS BY PEOPLE INVOLVED IN WHITE HOUSE OPERATIONS AND THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF AROUND VARIOUS INSTANCES THAT HAPPENED SINCE THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN IN OFFICE

ALL SIX OF THE STAFFERS ROBERT MUELLER PLANS TO INTERVIEW WERE INVOLVED WITH CONCOCTING FALSE NARRATIVES TO COVER UP CONTACTS WITH RUSSIANS I HAVE A QUESTION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THAT'S A CRIMINAL MATTER RIGHT? IT NOT A CRIME TO LIE BUT IS IT A CRIME TO CONCOCT A FALSE NARRATIVE TO COVER UP SOMETHING YOU KNOW TO BE DIFFERENT? IS THE SPECIAL COUNSEL INTERVIEWING THESE PEOPLE JUST AS WITNESSES ARE THESE PEOPLE ON THE HOOK FOR SOMETHING? ARE THEY GETTING GOOD LAWYERS? THIS IS AN ANSWERABLE QUESTION

DON MCGAHN AND REINCE PRIEBUS, FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF, THEY HAVE BOTH HIRED THE SAME LAWYER FOR THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION NOW, I MEAN, MAYBE THEY ARE JUST GOING IN TOGETHER TO CUT THE COST? [ LAUGHTER ] >> I DON'T THINK IT WORKS THAT WAY THAT IS STRANGE ISN'T IT POSSIBLE DON MCGAHN AS A WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL AND REINCE PREBIAS, COULD THEY HAVE CONFLICTING INTEREST ONE IS GONE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE

THE OTHER ONE IS THERE THEY MAY HAVE BEEN IN THE ROOM FOR THE SAME DECISIONS BUT COULD HAVE INTEREST THERE THAT DIE VERGE OR BE CALLED UPON AS CORROBORATING WITNESSES FOR EACH OTHER'S STORY FOR THEM TO NOT HAVE THE SAME LAW FIRM BUT THE EXACT SAME LAWYER, THAT SEEMS STRANGE CAN THEY DO THAT? ALSO, ONE OTHER QUESTION LAW 360 WAS THE FIRST NEWS OUTLET TO REPORT DON MCGAHN'S NEW ATTORNEY REPRESENTING DON MCGAHN AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND NOT OFFICIAL CAPACITY

THAT'S ACCORDING TO A PERSON FAMILIAR WITH THE HIRING REPRESENTING HIS PERSONAL CAPACITY NOT IN HIS OFFICIAL CAPACITY WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? HE'S GOT THIS NEW LAWYER TO REPRESENT HIM FOR UNPAID PARKING TICKETS OR SOMETHING? HE ISN'T IMPLICATED IN THIS IN PERSONAL CAPACITY HE'S IMPLICATED BECAUSE HE'S THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL YOU'LL REPRESENT HIM BUT NOT AS WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL? I'M SURE THAT MEANS SOMETHING TO PEOPLE THAT KNOW THIS ST
