Trump said it: ‘Investigate’ MSNBC’s Scarborough over ‘mysterious’ death of intern

(National SentinelIntrigue: In the wake of NBC‘s firing of longtime “Today” co-host Matt Lauer over allegations of sexual misconduct, President Donald J. Trump targeted MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough, a frequent critic of the president, calling for an investigation into him over the “mysterious” death of a congressional intern.

Trump tweeted, “Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for ‘inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.’ But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!”

Then the president targeted Scarborough, bringing up the mysterious death of his congressional aide from when he was a Republican Congressman in 2001.

“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”

As Gawker reported in June 2015, Lori Klausutis, the intern, was found dead in Scarborough’s office when he was still a GOP congressman from Florida.

The Associated Press reported at the time:

A 28-year-old office worker for U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough was found dead Friday in the congressman’s district office.

Preliminary findings from the medical examiner’s office showed no foul play or any outward indication of suicide, said Police Chief Steve Hogue.

Authorities identified the woman as Lori Klausutis of Niceville. She had worked for Scarborough since May 1999, said Mick Serrano, press secretary for the congressman.

Scarborough has denied any involvement in the intern’s death.
