While in the midst of another fun-filled segment of bashing the Trump Administration, the panel of MSNBC’s Morning Joe took the time to once again reiterate the media narrative of the President being tied to Russia. Their target this time was the law firm that Trump used to manage his taxes, Morgan, Lewis, and Bockius. The panelists howled with laughter over the fact that the firm had received in 2016 the Russian Law Firm of the Year Award.
“Oh, I like this,” self-proclaimed conservative Joe Scarborough began as political analyst John Heilemann proceeded to read off the incriminating information:
“If you go to their website it will tell you that they not only celebrated their Russian Law Firm of the Year Award, but they talk about their 40 lawyers and staff who are in their Moscow office and have deep ties.”
“Sounds like just the right law firm for the President!” Nicholas Confessore, New York Times political correspondent exclaimed. But, the verbal onslaught had not yet ended as Heilemann later concluded with the following:
“It's fantastic. The website says they're well known, the law firm. Well known in the Russian market and have a deep familiarity with the legislation, practices and key players, The firm boasts of being quote “particularly adept at advising clients on, quote, sanction matters.”
