Trump And Kushner’s Blackmail On ‘Morning Joe’ Hosts Could Land Them A Trip To Prison

Recent reports and confessions from both “Morning Joe” Hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski revealed that Donald Trump and Jared Kushner blackmailed the couple.

According to New York Magazine, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, threatened Scarborough and Brzezinski to release the National Enquirer publishing a story about their relationship if they didn’t apologize to the president.

The question: Is it legal for them to do that?

The answer: No.

If Trump and Kushner did in fact blackmailed the TV hosts, that would be a crime per 18 USC 872, constitutional lawyer Laurence Tribe wrote on Twitter.

According to the Harvard Law School Professor Laurence Tribe:

The Morning Joe hosts wrote in The Washington Post, “The president’s unhealthy obsession with our show has been in the public record for months, and we are seldom surprised by his posting nasty tweets about us. During the campaign, the Republican nominee called Mika “neurotic” and promised to attack us personally after the campaign ended. This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas.”

To make matters worse for the president and his son-in-law, Scarborough says he has proof that the president in fact blackmailed him.

Trump’s latest tweet also suggests that the blackmailing did happen.
