It may already be too late for Donald Trump to save his presidency due to the “insurmountable” Russian scandal, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough suggested on Monday.
Discussing a Reuters report about three separate Justice Department investigations into Trump’s ties to Russia, the MSNBC host compared the scandal to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
“You actually look at Donald Trump saying, ‘I have not had any ties with Russia, I’ve had no business dealings with Russia,’” Scarborough said. “And he just says that point blank. I think, these stories that come out, I think the political problems that follow — if there are all these front businesses — are insurmountable.”
According to the report, the FBI has opened at least three investigations related to Russia’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
“The transactions under scrutiny involve investments by Russians in overseas entities that appear to have been undertaken through middlemen and front companies,” two people briefed on the probe said.
Additionally, FBI agents in Washington are conducting a counterintelligence inquiry into “financial transactions by Russian individuals and companies who are believed to have links to Trump associates,” according to Reuters.
