Recently Trump replaced Marc Kasowitz with John Dowd after some reports surfaced that Deutsche Bank agreed to hand over their records related to dealings with our president.
This is when Maddow said that “The White House is going nuclear. Like, break glass in case of emergency — they were smashing the glass last night.”
Furthermore, Dowd complained that the Deutsche Bank related transactions were “beyond the mandate of the special counsel” and “unrelated to the election of 2016 or any alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and most importantly, they are well beyond any statute of limitations imposed by the U.S. Code.’”
That’s why Maddow questioned this. “Who said anything about statute of limitations? Why are you bringing that up? The statute of limitations for prosecuting what crimes exactly?”
So they contacted Dowd to get to the bottom of the story.
Dowd told Maddow’s producer “We have no evidence that any of these [Trump business] entities are under investigation. I’m beginning to think it’s not true. I’m beginning to wonder where the hell it came from.”
Then, he added a cryptic and chilling threat:
“This is the last call we’ll ever have.”
So Maddow told her audience “Some days are weirder than others in this job. But you never really expect them to get that weird in conversation with the lead attorney for the president of the United States.”
It’s most likely that Dowd’s message about the statute of limitations is an indication that crimes were committed.
And Dowd hasn’t been the first person to make threats from Trump’s legal team. Kasowitz recently got caught telling a complete stranger who emailed him “Watch your batch, b*tch” and adding, “You will see me. I promise. Bro.”
