Of all the things that could currently be used against Donald Trump to bring him down, the incompetence of the undeserving POTUS and his own team seems to be doing the most damage.
This morning, a new ProPublica report was released, which reveals that Trump’s own personal lawyer, Mark Kasowitz, issued a startling confession that is going to make Trump’s Russia investigation a hell of a lot worse. Apparently, Kasowitz bragged about the fact that he got Trump to fire New York United States Attorney Preet Bharara in March, because he had told paranoid Trump, “This guy is going to get you.” ProPublica reported:
Kasowitz “boasted to friends and colleagues that he played a central role in the firing of Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, according to four people familiar with the conversations.”
When Bharara was fired by Trump, eyebrows were raised because the Southern District was doing an investigation on Trump’s secretary of the health and human services, Tom Price. This is certainly an ethical concern, as Obama administration ethics czar Norm Eisen wrote in reference to the ProPublica report:
“ETHICS SIREN: if all this is true, then @markkasowitz may be spec gov employee b/c giving personnel advice, legal advice 2WH staff, etc.starting 2smell like Icahn situation; if Kasowitz is/becomes SGE, must folo gov conflicts, disclosure & other rules.”
Recently, Kasowitz already screwed Trump over by threatening to take legal action against Comey. Now, it’s being revealed that Kasowitz has given Trump advice on personal matters, which directly influences how Trump gets rid of people who are a threat to him. This definitely strengthens Comey’s testimony, as it’s becoming more obvious that Trump attempts to sabotage his investigations by firing people. Kasowitz just admitted it, and this is definitely going to become a damaging factor in the investigation.
