Joe Scarborough laced into Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Monday’s “Morning Joe” with a broadside that included a partial accounting some of his clients greatest scandals. The MSNBC host said it all added up to official corruption of historic proportions.
“This is the most corrupt administration in the history of our life time, certainly over the first year and a half,” said Scarborough. “[Giuliani] will tell you he’s been knighted by the Queen of England.”
Coming in at nearly ten minutes in length, Scarborough reminded viewers of Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s private jets, the former energy contracts given to company from the same town as Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Scott Pruitt’s mile long list of questionable activities.
There was Trump University, and payments to Stormy Daniels, three indictments in the Russia investigation and — lest we forget — former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is now currently sitting in solitary confinement.
The scandal string was inspired by comments Giuliani made to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos saying President Trump wanted to answer questions under oath, but that how could he trust such a “corrupt” investigation.
“He wants to testify,” said the former NYC mayor. “It’s hard to believe given all the things that have been shown about how tainted this investigation is. This is the most corrupt investigation I have ever seen.”
Scarborough — as is his custom — defended Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s honor.
“We certainly know that Robert Mueller is not corrupt.” said Scarborough “We certainly know he is a marine, a war hero, a guy who [unlike] Donald Trump didn’t skip out on serving this country, claiming deferments and bone spurs.”
Since returning to Trumps’ orbit as his new lead attorney, Giuliani has become a renewed fixture on television, occasionally making news and routinely promising anyone who will listen that he will bring the Russia collusion investigation to a close.
