Trump Lawyer Blasts Giuliani, Asks If Cohen Was A “Mob" Fixer | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC

In a Beat exclusive, Trump lawyer Jay Goldberg attacks Trump’s other lawyer, Rudy Giuliani saying Giuliani was not “the right person” for Trump to hire and there were “much better people” to get for “negotiating with Mueller.” Goldberg also blasting Giuliani for taking the spotlight, trying to “aggrandize himself”, a charge he also lays on Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti. Goldberg notes that any possible “wrongdoing” that occurred while he was Trump’s lawyer was kept from him, but suggests that Michael Cohen’s self-described role as a “fixer” for Trump could relate to the influence of the “mob” in “building trades”.

Trump Lawyer Blasts Giuliani, Asks If Cohen Was A “Mob" Fixer | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC
  • Jack Hughes

    This coffin dodger is an apologist for Trump, shame on him!

  • Jeffrey Photonboy

    How is Goldberg unaware that Avenatti and Daniels were in agreement that Avenatti would appear on TV? It's frikking common knowledge... also, Trump never asked Goldberg to do anything he wasn't in the "right" on? B.S.... just Google people who have been ripped off, and in some cases put out of business by Trump through the legal system during Goldberg's tenure... doesn't pass the smell test.

    Keep Guiliani on the team /it will be another segment of the keystone Cops golden days of Mac Sennet. His entire life has been a glamorous limelight of this mob boss saga . Rudy is the fixer for his client while making quite A name for himself for Mark Whalberg willing to approach Giuliani to talk about a movie deal offering this very greedy prospector a ample opportunity to cash in his casino chips and put his efforts to a firmer pulling of a lure constructed to diversify the interest of these crucial players in this comedy series. They say it is not over until the fat lady sings but since the golden girl has kept her wardrobe under wraps up until now chances Are /Giuliani has been auditioning for his major role for quite some time and the finished project will no doubt bring mixed reviews but just like the deal he secured for the World Trade Center movie he has been placing his own shares into private trust as well. No one should be surprise when he walks Away with his own trophy for Secret Santa contribution to Mueller’s Blockbuster tellAll story /As Perry Mason Returns

    Geezus. I live next door to a blind man who makes better eye contact than this guy. Trump gets the worst possible people.... and this is one of his GOOD ones.

  • malenotyalc

    How can he claim that Avenatti goes on tv without checking with his client, Stormy Daniels? The only way he'd know that is if Stormy made that claim, or there is some communication from Daniels to Avenatti that Trump has tapped, otherwise he wouldn't be privy to it. How can you 4 on MSNBC not even ask him a follow up about such a bizarre claim? He is either lying and committing slander or doing something illegal to have said knowledge.

  • Eisdax

    where is he looking?

  • Chum Kh

    All Trump lawyers are like their employer.

  • Sheila Haydel

    so what I hear is this guy is being one of Chump’s tv lawyers...along with Guiliani

  • rant404

    Why is Goldberg talking about his client?

  • antiqueandroid

    What's this guy looking at?

  • Brad Tinkham

    Trumps long association with organized crime is well known and documented. When they stopped loaning him money he started getting it from Russia. Watching DT's need to keep paying them both back is unsettling. He really has no actual net worth - it is all loans and wishful thinking.

  • kimmie kash

    Giuliani appears to make up answers as he goes

  • Natalie Williams

    "shake downs by the mod" ? wow! Sounds on the up and up to me.

  • Waqar Ghulam

    For a while I thought this dude was blind, then I realized he is not blind by sight but by conscious

  • waaen

    It is just becoming a s**t fight, I always wondered when the mob would pop up .Trump should just hire millions of lawyers to go out and say whatever they want, that will keep them confused ?

  • stevin47

    what more do you need to reopen house investigation . OH MY !

    Who's the MOB BOSS FAMILY'S

  • Hamlet telmaH

    Michael Cohen has/had more cellphones than he has clients and friends put together.

  • Lola Cookie

    You gotta give it to Trump, he believes in equal employment opportunities as he hires old, dumb and corrupt.

  • Zissou Moonshot

    I have to assume that Avenatti discussed his media-heavy strategy with Ms. Daniels beforehand. Not sure why Goldberg would be suggesting otherwise, aside from the fact that he is in Trump's pocket.

  • bonwright78

    Good grief! His lawyers keep getting older and older. It’s time to retire now and live the rest of your days with what dignity you have left.

  • xtr3m3

    Maybe M. Cohen was collecting the cash to pay for the Wall...

  • x x

    trump is in the house playin head games and takin jobs

  • Dorothy Young

    Did he just say, "There's no crime in collusion"? Did I hear that correctly?

  • dutchpy dutchpy

    All these lawyers are like flies around the sugar and honey........Once the money is out, they are gone.....

  • mary w

    Sounds more like he was establishing his protection from prior years practice by his own version of attorney client priviledge .

  • rant404

    It was the Dotard, in the bedroom, with the $130,000 NDA.

  • Marty Gray

    Our nation will muddle through this Russian hack & betrayal by dear leader - aided and abbetted by most republican senators & represenative. How will history judge those republican senators & represenatives? Understanding that "all politics are local"; to the voters of these republican senators & represenatives, who have not held them accountable, - Shame, shame, ...

    Hehehehehe Avenatti is ruffling all these old birds feathers and I’m here for it all!

  • Flinston lon

    something cooking in there

  • jeffrey pierce

    he's president trump to you son...don't forget that fact.

  • Gary Pace

    MSNBC could not report the whole truth waterboarded.....sheesh...every chance they get i hear some form of railing accusation. I will watch FOX to hear the whole truth.

  • Prof. M. Otto Zeee JCD ECS

    I don't get it, America, the king can fire anyone who threatens his throne, but isn't America a so-called democracy, where law and order is held high... Shouldn't it be made impossible, especially after TRICKY DICKY, for a President, or anyone for that matter, in the government to fire an investigator in an ongoing investigation. Mind, no judge in his right mind, would have signed a search order, without seeing convincing evidence! ;-)

  • Sue S

    Hey Ari Melber? Why did you not ask Jay Goldberg where he got his mob tie information that he supposedly was protected from? How did he find out about it and when did he find out about it? I'm sorry but he came off as someone who wants to put everything on Cohen to clear Trump and himself.....

  • Dorothy Young

    This poor guy looks like he's constipated and miserable.

  • johann rüstmann

    All these old muppets , nothing but the best people . Dump the trump . Crime and Mob people .

  • bonwright78

    Lol trying to clear his name before he dies.

  • mrsslop922

    This shows like how really smart his genes and his brain is bigly.
