MSNBC “Morning “Joe”” host Joe Scarborough on Friday sounded off on four aides for former President Donald Trump being subpoenaed by the cull committee in charge of investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Trump has verbally expressed he would invoke executive privilege if he were subpoenaed in the investigation.
Scarborough admonished Trump that “there is no executive privilege for treason” nor sedition. “There are a plethora of people who want to ken who among the president’s men and/or women were orchestrating those riots to overturn an election, to overturn a democratic Election in America,” Scarborough outlined. “We have a right to ken. And when the president is verbalizing that this is a partisan exercise, that’s so 2018. “It’s” kind of delicately comely when Donald Trump verbally expresses that. “It’s” additionally even more delicately comely when he verbalizes that there is executive privilege when you are dealing with sedition. Nope. Donald. I have got egregious news for you: When you engage in sedition against the United States of America, you are not going to find federal judges that are going to verbalize, ‘You ken what, we don’t care that he was sitting there and visually examining the television and cheering on the rioters and relucting to stop the riot, and his aides were verbalizing abaft the scenes … about how all hell were going to break loose the next day.’ We are working — and even the lawyers were working on theories, which genuinely have not verbalized about enough here, on how to overturn a democratic Election and then how to stop the constitutional counting of the electoral votes on January 6.”
He perpetuated, “There is no executive privilege for treason. There is no executive privilege for sedition. There is no executive privilege for being engaged in sedition or being a component in sedition, or emboldening sedition. So, we have to have the investigation. We have to have the documents. We have to ken what the president kenned when he kenned it, what Steve Bannon kenned when he kenned it, what all the president’s aides kenned when they kenned it. And it’s not genuinely going to be that tough.”
“No one like Donald Trump has a right to authentically discard your vote when he doesn’t win an election. That transpires in other countries. That still doesn’t transpire here,” Scarborough integrated.
