How do you build a legal case when the defendant is a former president? MSNBC legal contributors Andrew Weissmann and Mary McCord have an idea. They’re two of the most well-respected and storied prosecutors in the country – and have prosecuted historic cases from Enron to the Benghazi attack. So, they’re the perfect people to tell us how a prosecutor -- from Alvin Bragg to Fani Willis to Jack Smith – might think about prosecuting a former president.
Alicia Menendez – in for Nicolle Wallace – discusses the increasingly violent rhetoric of the twice impeached ex-president as a judge delivers another ruling compelling testimony from aides in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s probe, the possible fallout for prosecutors investigating the former president after a death threat and white powder was mailed to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, the far-right Republicans’ visit to jailed January 6th defendants, reaction to President Biden’s joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and more. Joined by: Carol Leonnig, Peter Strzok, Jim Walden, David Jolly, Al Sharpton, Rep. Robert Garcia, Ben Rhodes, Mary McCord, and Ken Sicknick
