Following his pardon from the former president, Bernard Kerik became one of Donald Trump’s hanger’s on. The former NYC police commissioner spent plenty of time with Rudy Giuliani as the Trump lawyer attempted to overturn the 2020 election.
And since he was somewhat connected to Trump, Kerik felt that he could claim executive privilege. The former cop, though, relented and provided his log to the 1/6 commission. Some of those documents were acquired by Politico. Reading through them last night, Rachel Maddow couldn’t help but laugh at the typos.
The MSNBC host began, “Privilege logs don’t look like this. What Bernie Kerik produced as his ‘privilege log’ — this is like the bazooka bubble gum wrapper version of a privilege log. But it is his explanation to the Jan. 6 investigators what he has not handed over to them and why… and it’s not a document that overall inspires confidence.”
“That’s not me misspelling or making fun of it. That’s what Bernie Kerik and his lawyers say is the title of the document. Compliation (sic) of rants. Yes, we can see how that’s very sensitive, and that can’t be handed over to investigators. The compilation — compliations (sic) of your rants or pants or whatever. Sure, your compliation (sic) of rants. I understand, very sensitive.”
