Joe Scarborough Says Trump's 'Motley Crew' of Lawyers Doesn't Stand a Chance Against Mueller

MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday morning called President Donald Trump's team of lawyers a "motley crew" with a huge disadvantage against Russia probe special counsel Robert Mueller.

On the show, MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle said of Trump's lawyers, Rudy Giuliani, Ty Cobb and John Dowd, "None of them know as much as Bob Mueller knows because their client has not fully told them."

Scarborough said Trump's refusal to disclose all the details in his case is a "nightmare" for lawyers.

"You have a client, and they tell you 90 percent of the story, guarantee you that when you go into court or when you're going into grand jury testimony, it's going to be the 10 percent that side-swipes you," Scarborough said. "And what do you hear all the time from the best lawyers in Washington, D.C., which Donald Trump can't get? One, he doesn't pay, and number two, he doesn't tell the truth."

Scarborough's co-host, Mika Brzezinski, then brought up a Bloomberg report stating that Trump's lawyers are said to lack the security clearances needed to talk about the president possibly being interviewed by Mueller.

"So the law firm of Larry, Mo and Curly, and of counsel Rudy, can't actually find out what the truth is," Scarborough said, making a Three Stooges reference.

"Bob Mueller, I have a friend who says, 'He's a cyborg. He keeps coming at you,'" Scarborough continued, "and he literally has this motley crew that, they've never played in this arena before."

Trump's legal troubles reached a new level last month, when the FBI raided his personal lawyer Michael Cohen's home, office and hotel room as part of an investigation into Cohen's business deals—including a payout to porn star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, to cover up an affair she allegedly had with Trump.

Scarborough reiterated a point he has made in the past, that it is "unbelievable" that Trump is "facing an existential threat to his presidency," his businesses and personal life, yet "will not do what it takes to get attorneys who know what they're doing."
