Defense lawyers for President Donald Trump and Paul Manafort are likely to find themselves testifying, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin explained Wednesday on “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell.
“The president and his attorneys are communicating with every pathological liar and criminal out there that they possibly can,” O’Donnell noted.
“It’s remarkable, actually,” Rubin noted. “And because there is no defense for someone who has already pled guilty, what they have said — everything they have — said is discoverable.”
“So those lawyers are now themselves potential criminal defendants in a scheme to obstruct justice or to execute a bribery,” she explained.
“They will have to be called in. They must testify. They must give prosecutor everything he wants to know,” she continued.
“And I think, as far as those lawyers go, the lawyers are going to need lawyers,” she concluded.
