Denying Basic Facts Makes You Seem Delusional: Chris Hayes Confronts Lewandowski’s Lawyer
Last night on MSNBC’s All In, Chris Hayes got into a heated discussion with a lawyer representing Donald Trump‘s embattled campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as he faces battery charges for allegedly grabbing and harming a reporter earlier this month.
Hayes asked Bradford Cohen, Lewandowski’s lawyer, about what kind of defense can be used in court when newly-released video would indicate that Michelle Fields‘ claims were not so “delusional” by police standards.
Cohen responded that Lewandowski had no idea who Fields was and that the video only proves that they walked near each other, but Hayes wasn’t having any of that.
“Denying these basic things make you seem delusional if you won’t just concede,” Hayes said. “We’re all looking at this video.”
Hayes pressed Cohen if he thought Fields was making up the whole story despite the increasing amount of media evidence and the police’s decision to follow through on charges. Cohen continued to insist that the new video proved nothing and that the case was “ridiculous.”
“The fact is this was not something like what she described,” Cohen said. “She said she was assaulted, almost pulled down to the ground. That’s nowhere on that video tape.”
