During a Thursday broadcast, MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch accused President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani of “planting the seeds for a civil war.”
Referring to Giuliani’s defense of Trump against Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election, Deutsch, a “Morning Joe” contributor, said, “I’ll tell you what’s scary about Giuliani, he’s planting the seeds for a civil war.”
According to Raw Story, Deutsch contended that Giuliani was stoking a dangerous fire by undermining the rule of law.
Deutsch predicted what might occur if Mueller’s investigation ultimately revealed enough evidence of criminal wrongdoing by the president to trigger the impeachment process, and he warned that the revelation might lead to war.
“Unless what Mueller comes up with is Trump on the phone with Putin saying, ‘Let’s turn this into Russia/USA,’ that 35 percent is going to take to the streets,” Deutsch said. “We keep going through this in a very academic way. Play this out and let’s say that really Trump — we find his hand in the cookie jar. Unless it’s so egregious, we’re going to have a country that is really, really at civil war for the first time.”
The United States was engaged in the Civil War from Apr 12, 1861 to May 13, 1865.
