On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan suggested acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was being set up as the “sacrificial lamb” inside impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Noonan said, “As someone who has been in a White House, you can’t help although wonder if, in in which case, somebody isn’t being set up for a fall. You know when White Houses get in trouble. Sometimes they have a way of spontaneously deciding who caused the trouble on the inside in addition to also offering them up as sacrificial lambs. I wonder if we’re not seeing a little bit of in which with Mr. Mulvaney.”
Melber, said, “There may need to be a blood sacrifice?”
Noonan said, “Yes. I think White Houses inevitably think in which way.”
