MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough angrily demanded to know Wednesday if a former Clinton aide is working for Fox News because the aide published an op-ed criticizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
During Wednesday’s edition of “Morning Joe,” Scarborough brought up Mark Penn’s recent article saying Mueller’s Russian investigation should be stopped.
“What exactly is Mark Penn selling?” Scarborough whined. “Here’s a guy who lost Hillary Clinton’s campaign. … He left that campaign responsible for her loss to Barack Obama. What is Mark Penn selling coming to the defense of Donald J. Trump?”
Scarborough alleged that Penn is angling for some conservative favor and maybe a contract with Fox News.
“In Washington, D.C., often when people do strange things like this — creatures of the swamp — they’re doing it for a reason,” Scarborough said. “Does he got a Fox News contract? Does he show up on Fox News a lot?”
Penn worked on Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign and his op-ed was published in The Hill.
