Jared Kushner Hires Prominent Lawyer With Extensive Scandal Experience | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


EVENING RACHEL MADDOW IS UP

>>> PRESIDENT'S SON-IN-LAW HAS TONIGHT HIRED ONE THE OF COUNTRY'S MOST PROMINENT CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS THIS PROMINENT CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER WILL BE REPRESENTING JARED KUSHNER PERSONALLY IN THE TRUMP/RUSSIA INVESTIGATION HIS NAME IS ABBY LOWELL HE IS ONE OF THE FEW CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS IN AMERICA WHO I THINK COUNTS AS HOUSEHOLD NAME HE IS MOST FAMOUS FOR HAVING AGAIN DEMOCRATS' TOP LAWYER DURING THE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST BILL CLINTON

HE ALSO REPRESENTED THE FABULOUSLY CORRUPT CONVICTED REPUBLICAN SUPER LOBBYIST, JACK ABRAM OFF HE ALSOER REPRESENTED JOHN EDWARDS QUHEFS CHARGED WITH ILLEGAL I USING CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS TO PAY FOR THE LIVING EXPENSES FOR HIS SECRET SECOND FAMILY THAT NOBODY KNEW ABOUT ABBY LOWELL HAS BEEN THE DEFENSE LAWYER, HE HAS BEEN THE DEFENSE LAWYER IN THE MIDDLE OF TAUNL OF LURISH D POLITICAL SCANDALS JIM WRIGHT WHO WAS THE FIRST SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE TO EVER RESIGN IN SCANDAL, HE HAD HE ABBY LOWELL AS HIS LAWYER AND THE MAN WHO WENT STRAIGHT FROM BEING THE CHERYL OF THE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE TO SERVING 17 MONTHS THIS FEDERAL PRISON, ABBY LOWELL WAS HIS LAWYER

AND NOW HE'LL BE THE DEFENSE LAWYER FOR JARED KUSHNER TOO MR KUSHNER IS KEEPING HIS EXISTING LAWYER, ANOTHER WASHINGTON A-LISTER BUT IN ADDITION, HE IS NOW ADDING ABBY LOWELL WHICH MEANS LIKE MIKE PENCE, PRESIDENTIAL SENIOR ADVISER AND PRESIDENTIAL SON-IN-LAW AND DE FACTO CROWN PRINCE OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, JARED KUSHNER AND MIKE PENCE NOW BOTH HAVE BETTER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN THIS MATTER THAN THE PRESIDENT DOES AND I DON'T MEAN TO BE WEIRD ABOUT THIS BUT TO FACE THIS SCANDAL, TO MOUNT A PERSONAL DEFENSE, THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF HAS HIRED THIS GUY

LIKE HANDLED SOME OF HIS DIVORCE STUFF HE HIRED A LAWYER WHO MOSTLY DOES RELIGIOUS RIGHT TELEVANGELIST STUFF AND HE HIRED THIS GUY >> YOU'RE GOING TO WANT TO WATCH THIS NEXT PIECE OF VIDEO THAT WE HAVE HE IS OUT ON BAIL AFTER BEING CONVICTED OF ALL 14 COUNTS OF COULDN'T SPEARCY AND FRAUD HIS ATTORNEY HAS PROMISED TO APPEAL THOSE CONVICTIONS

THIS IS THE VIDEO THAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT CNBC CAUGHT UP WITH MR DOWD A SHORT TIME AGO >> THAT'S WHAT I GOT FOR CNBC >> WOW! >> THAT'S WHAT I GOT FOR CNBC

CNBC DOESN'T USUALLY HAVE TO BLUR HAND GESTURES IT IS LIKE BUSINESS STUFF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? BUT THE PRESIDENT HAS HIRED THIS STAR WARS BAR SCENE LEGAL TEAM TO MOUNT HIS OWN DEFENSE IN THE RUSSIA SCANDAL AND THAT IS FINE

THAT'S HIS PREROGATIVE HE GETS TO DO IT HOWEVER HE WANTS TO DO IT IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT NOW THIS CONTRAST, HIS VICE PRESIDENT, MIKE PENCE, AND HIS SON-IN-LAW JARED KUSHNER, IN CONTRAST TO WHAT HE'S DONE, THEY'VE HIRED REAL BIG NAME LAWYERS WITH TONS OF EXPERIENCE IN BIG NAME POLITICAL SCANDALS MIKE PENCE HIRED RICHARD CULLEN JARED KUSHNER JUST HIRED ABBY LOWELL

WE'LL HAVE MORE COMING UP IN A COUPLE MINUTES ABOUT WHY JARED KUSHNER MAY BE FEELING THE NEED TO ADD SUCH AN A-LIST LAWYER TO HIS PERSONAL PAY ROLL THERE ARE TWO THINGS HAVE JUST COME UP THAT MAY EXPLAIN THE SENSE OF URGENCY WITH HIS LEGALL
