Rachel Maddow Explains Why Mike Pence Is in Huge Trouble


Rachel Maddow explained Friday that Vice President Mike Pence seems to keep escaping the scandals of President Donald Trump, but won't actually emerge unscathed.

Pence has repeatedly made false statements about Trump-related controversies and saw his own press secretary quit this week.

"Again and again and again, Vice President Pence really has made brazenly untrue public statements about some of the most controversial elements of this new administration and the Russia scandal specifically," Maddow said. 

The MSNBC host went on to discuss how Pence already signaled his awareness of the legal jeopardy he faces by trying to set up a political action committee to pay his legal defense bills, before having to backtrack on the plan when it received public scrutiny.
