Former Watergate Prosecutor Says North Korea May Be Right That Trump Is a 'Lunatic'


Former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman explained during an MSNBC appearance the possible reasons that President Donald Trump referred to some U.S. intelligence officials as "political hacks." 

Trump's comments were especially disturbing, because he claimed he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin's denial of interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election was authentic.

“You’ve got to ask why. One: Is it that the North Koreans are right that the guy is a lunatic? Two: Is he in business with Putin? Three: Did the Keith Schiller testimony — revealing that in fact, Trump had been offered five women back in 2013 in Russia — do they have him blackmailed?” Akerman said.

He followed that by affirming, “All of these are valid questions at this point for investigators.”
