For the first time in living memory, the filming of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” was actually interesting Thursday morning when federal investigators showed up.
After President Trump refocused law enforcement on Scarborough’s past, the murder weapon was recovered in the 2010 murder of an intern while the second-rate (fake) newsman served as a Democrat Representative for the state of Florida. An intern had been found dead in Scarborough’s office with “severe head trauma.” While Scarborough’s favorite paperweight — a brass gavel inscribed with his signature — went missing at around the time, no one connected it to the murder at the time.
But on Wednesday, a search of Scarborough’s old office turned up that very paperweight hidden behind a piece of the wall. Notably, it has traces of the victim’s blood on it according to a report published by legal blog Justice Watch.
Investigators walked onto the set of Scarborough and his wife Mika’s show Thursday where they reportedly “questioned Mr. Scarborough for over an hour.”
On Wednesday, Scarborough called President Trump’s allegations “bizarre” and refused to respond to them, noting that he chose that day to “stop responding” to President Trump. We can only assume this means he would prefer to have a lawyer present when discussing the murdered intern.
This all happened after the President tweeted asking if MSNBC will “terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago.” The Justice Department then launched an investigation that may mean the end of Scarborough’s life outside of a prison cell. The victim’s family has been calling for a new investigation for years, citing a coverup.
Scarborough was not arrested after his interview with the FBI, but it’s looking like he might not want to “leave town” if you know what I’m saying.
