Scarborough: Trump aides better cooperate with Mueller

Scarborough: Trump aides better cooperate with Mueller

Scarborough: cooperate with feds “if you ever want to have any hope of . . . making a living the rest of your life.”

On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle fretted over the personal impact the investigations surrounding the Trump administration are having on aides to the president. Each wondered, “what do you tell your children?”

But Joe Scarborough, putting things in mercenary terms, warned aides that they must cooperate with the feds out of financial self-interest:

“Not only what do you tell your children. . . . You have to cooperate, actually, with federal authorities if you ever want to have any hope of making another dime and making a living the rest of your life.”

Was Joe offering his advice out of altruistic concern for the future of the Trump aides, or was he acting more like a prosecutor trying to squeeze potential witnesses to help make a case against the president?

MIKE BARNICLE: What do you tell your children?

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: If you do not do the right thing, what do you tell your children?

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Not only what do you tell your children? What do you tell your next potential employer when you go to be employed after all of this implodes? Do you go say, you know what, I got convicted of a felony? But I was pardoned by the president in a sleazy back-and-forth.

No, that’s, you don’t march on from that. That’s the end. So you have to cooperate, actually, with federal authorities, if you ever want to have any hope of making another dime and making a living the rest of your life.”

Huh. So all of the pleading of the Fifth to Congress about leveraging the IRS against political enemies, about Benghazi, etc., was something you should proudly brag about to the kids? And I guess it is a great resume builder for you next job to allow you to “make another dime…”

The real Beavis and Butthead were unavailable for comment…

If Mike Barnicle can continue making a living………..

Why even bother with the aides? Just have John McCain find another bs dossier or Comey make something up in a memo. That should be enough, right?

I’m starting the appreciate the attraction of Joe & Mika’s Flying Circus.

There’s nothing quite like the smell of leftoid desperation to start the day off right.

“… after all of this implodes.”

Sounds awful biased there, Joey. Do you know something the rest of us don’t or did Mika give you a ‘bedroom ultimatum’?

That is a death threat,
and it should be reported.

I recall when Joe used to have some coherent thoughts. Now it seems that Mika has whipped his entire body, from brain to soles (or soul). Hey, you two, what are YOU going to tell YOUR children?

Morning Joke no longer has to worry about Trump aids cooperating with Mueller.

With the exit of Sebastian Gorka, all that’s left surrounding Trump are Mueller aides.

I understand what he meant. Remember how the obama aides “Volunteered” to come in and tell all they knew about the IRS scandal, fast and furious scandal, Benghazi scandal, the phoney name e-mails scandals, hillary’s lying aides scandal, the EPA scandals, the obamacare lies scandal, the Iranian nuclear scandal, and many more where the Demorat aides came forward and offered to help. No, I don’t remember it either!

Maybe what Joe means is that you’d better give the appearance of cooperation while quietly stonewalling with the best attorneys and political muscle money can buy. Kinda like what the Clintons have always done. Yeah, like that.

He’s realized there’s no defense against Presidential pardon, so he’s pretending that there is one. Liberalism is all about pretending.

One thing you can always say about Joe; he’s always obvious.

Cooperate about what? What information do the aides have?

It seems the more lefties rag on Trump the more I like him.

Oh Joe, you silly. All you have to do is repeat “I do not recall” and all your sins are washed away. Not for nothing and I don’t like using this word but he truly is a cuck.

From the good old days of Whitewater…

Number of times that Clinton figures who testified in court or before Congress said that they didn’t remember, didn’t know, or something similar.

Poor Joe Cigarburro. Has no idea what hypocrisy or irony mean. She has that look on her face that says she knows she’s shacked up with someone more feminine than those she sees in the shower at the gym.
