Richard Painter On Trump’s ‘Kinky Sex’: ‘We’ve Got a Pervert in the White House’

Richard Painter stopped by MSNBC’s Velshi & Ruhle earlier today to discuss Donald Trump’s alleged affair with an adult film actress, where he said there is “nothing sexy about dirty old men in politics.” Painter continued that conversation when he sat down with Chris Hayes and as usual he did not hold back.

On MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes, Hayes had on author Tim O’Brien, to join painter in the Trump-porn star fiasco.

Hayes began by asking the former chief White House ethics lawyer about the ethical implications in this salacious story.

“The whole thing is disgusting, but we’ve had a disgusting past week to 10 days. I mean we have a president who refers to the countries where Americans of African decent come from as s-holes, and now we have this, using hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy off silence from some porn star that he’s having some kinky sex with,” Painter said passionately.

Painter then speculated about the legal ramifications of the story, going on to say that “paying off prostitutes he’s had affairs with if just one of the purposes” of Trump’s LLCs.

After getting O’Brien’s take for several minutes, Hayes asked Painter whether it would be fair to investigate Trump’s money ties outside the scope of the Mueller investigation.

“We’ve known that Donald Trump has had these LLC’s, many of them. We’ve known that for months and that Mr. Cohen set up a lot of them, some of his other lawyers set up other ones. Robert Mueller needs to look at every single one of them. Robert Mueller’s not going to make the mistake Ken Starr did of getting all worked up over the sex,” Painter said.

Painter then went for the jugular, saying “Yes, we know we’ve got a pervert in the White House.”
