MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner claimed President Donald Trump might appeal to his “newly acquired friends” North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, and Russian president Vladimir Putin for help in the 2020 election if Congress does not pursue an impeachment inquiry.
“If we don’t wrestle this monster to the ground now via an impeachment hearing, don’t we think the president will be emboldened to again lie, cheat and steal, maybe call in some of his newly acquired friends, Kim Jong-Un, MBS [Mohammad Bin Salman], and [Vladimir] Putin, to again help tilt the field in his favor? The only viable option, the only option based on principle, is to open impeachment hearings and wrestle this thing to the ground,” Kirschner said to host Ali Velshi Friday.
Velshi had asked Kirschner how he thought Democrats should “fully examine” or “build the case” against President Trump.
“So given the various roads that Congress is going on, about five separate investigations and then a discussion about impeachment proceedings or an impeachment inquiry, Nancy Pelosi seems to be resisting that, there seems to be growing calls among some Democrats for doing that, what—if Congress said, hire Kirschner, this guy knows what he’s talking about, what would you advise them to do, what path would you advise them to go down to either fully examine or build the case against Donald Trump?” Velshi asked.
