Spiro Agnew Lawyer: Trump Must Resign ‘If He Has Any Interest’ In Saving Family from Mueller
Martin London, the lawyer who represented Spiro Agnew during his politically-fatal tax evasion scandal, says Donald Trump should follow the former vice-president’s example and leave office before Robert Mueller undermines his family.
London joined Morning Joe on Friday to talk about a column he wrote calling on the president to resign. He explained that with so many members of Trump’s inner circle getting buried under legal troubles, Mueller’s investigation is likely to intensify as even more people flip on Trump to save themselves.
“It’s only going to get worse,” London said. “The rats are leaving the ship. He’s lost Gates, Papadopoulos, Cohen, Flynn, now Pecker. He’ll probably lose others from the Trump Organization.”
London continued by noting that Mueller probably knows a lot more than the public does about Trump at this stage, and he also slammed “clown [Rudy] Giuliani” over his attempts to defend the president. Most interestingly though, London says Mueller will inevitably prosecute Trump’s family, and resigning will be his only chance to save them.
“If he has any interest at all in not only saving his skin, but the skin of his child, his children, his son-in-law, his grandchildren, his daughter, this is a time when he’s got to seriously think about that. Now, is he capable of that, of serious thinking? Frankly, I doubt it.”
