Why Trump Just Fired The One Prosecutor He Fears More Than Mueller | MSNBC 1


In an unusual clash stretching over the weekend, President Trump fired the top federal prosecutor in New York, U.S. Attorney Geoff Berman, who has criminal jurisdiction over Pres. Trump, his business, family and associates in New York. MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber reports on Trump’s longstanding fixation on the office, including an unusual meeting during the Presidential transition; the key office’s key cases, including some that put heat on the Trump administration; and clues to other motivations for the termination. In a Beat segment in January 2019, Melber reported U.S. Attorney Geoff Berman could be the one federal prosecutor Trump feared “more than Bob Mueller,” the Russia special counsel, and the controversial firing suggests how much the administration was concerned about Berman’s work. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 6/22/2020.

  1. It’s a cover up when people investigate him; he fires them to protect himself…

    • System that make me laught or 🤮🤮…he does as he will.who wrote the constitution that allows this.The founding fathers?

    • @Enstigator Official where is the separate investigation into this death.COVER-UP again.

    • clintons would have just murdered them instead

    • @Antony felix What crime did Hunter commit?

      It is typical for Eastern European companies to hire celebrities or their children or prominent politicians or their children to their boards. These board members do nothing but lend their names. As a board member, Hunter Biden did not even visit Ukraine for three years.

      “It usually is a good investment for any Ukrainian businessman to hire some reputable guy or the relative of a reputable guy. It definitely paid off for Mr. Zlochevsky,” says Paraschiy. It’s common in Eastern Europe, and much of the world, to hire a celebrity or relative of a senior official to burnish a company’s image, and to help shield it from official or unofficial shakedowns.

      You or we might find it sleazy but it is common practice in Ukraine.

    • @Antony felix WHAT CORRUPTION? You can try to tie Hunter to corruption but without actually stating that the corruption is then your words are waste of space.

  2. Buckle up. As Trump spirals the drain on the way out, he’s going to get more and more stupid.

      @Dearly Diane How is Obama and Hillary NOT having to fire investigators, prosecutors and inspector generals who are not loyal to them not a good thing? And how is it a good thing that Trump fires these officials without proof of their corruption? Would your answer still be that you just don’t care?

    • @Dearly Diane Too funny! As soon as someone asks for a simple answer, people like you are stunned and deflect. Your condescension is not credible.

      @Dearly Diane you`ve been SCHOOLED on this comment page! go back to your troll farm and concentrate on FOX; they`re much more stupid and gullible.

    • no, 85 IQ, tis you who is beyond stupid

    • @Dearly Diane “My sources are way above your IQ level” I cannot imagine anybody with an ounce of intelligence typing this. Probably that saddest and worst excuse I’ve seen yet.

  3. Now we know THE REAL REASON he doesn’t want to be a resident of New York anymore and moved to Florida. GOP+NRA+KKK=KGB.

  4. In a way it’s hilarious that a criminal can fire his prosecutor. That’s only possible in the US.

    This may be the most blatant abuse of power and corruption in this terribly corrupt administration.

    I really think they should kick him out, right now and start prosecuting him.

    • i really think you have an IQ of 85 either that or you are just another evil one who hates the USA and all its people

    So much Corruption so many crimes. Trump MUST be stopped!

  8. All of these sound exactly how a dictator will act, getting rid of every person that interfere their way to stay in power

  9. Trump’s afraid of everyone right now ppl! He’s going nuts! Fired everything in front of him! 😂😂😂

    • Trump is cornered, he knows he has already lost the election, and he is trying every trick in the book, every desperate way to avoid the jail sentence that he knows he’s gonna get. Problem is, he is so stupid and so wrapped up in his own disconnected alternative reality that every attempt backfires and makes his position worse. I predict that soon, some of his closest GOP supporters will drop him. How long do you think that Barr is going to play along ? He has just been subpoenaed by Congress. He must know his career is sinking along with Trump.

    He fired him so that when he is voted out he is not immediately charged.

  11. SDNY will send trump to PRISON.

    Bill Barr and Trump need to be walked out in handcuffs.

  16. Trump is in pure survival mode like a cornered rat.
