Last month, Donald Trump released an angry statement without any explanation that fumed: “All the Democrats want to do is put people in jail. They’re vicious, violent, left-wing thugs… They destroy people’s lives and that’s the only thing they’re good at.” Now MSNBC host Rachel Maddow thinks she’s figured out why. She announced Monday night that the statement was released days after a previously unreported face-to-face meeting between Trump’s attorneys and Fulton County, Georgia prosecutors investigating whether Trump criminally violated Georgia state law by pressurizing exercised on electoral officials. Maddow linked the meeting to Trump’s testimony that same week, saying, “Although his testimonies have often gone awry, even for him, this seemed particularly out of whack.” She added, “That testimony [was] within days of that previously unreported meeting of his attorneys in person with the Fulton County Attorney’s Office. Maybe that’s why he was so upset?”
