Ari Melber MSNBC
Melber serves as a legal analyst for NBC News as well as MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, covering the United States Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Supreme Court. He reported that the firing of FBI Director James Comey could trigger an investigation into obstruction of justice on May 9, 2017 – the day Comey was fired – quoting a former FBI official who told him the firing raised potential obstruction. A probe was announced on May 18, 2017, which included an obstruction investigation.
Melber also reported President Trump’s actions toward Ukraine provided a potential case of impeachment for “bribery” in October. The next month, top Democrats began making the bribery case for the first time, showing “Democrats agreed with the MSNBC host,” according to Mediaite. Republican Congressman Ratcliffe also cited a bribery segment from The Beat during an impeachment hearing.
A few months into the Mueller probe, on August 29, 2017, Ari broke the story that a state investigator was exploring jurisdiction to charge potential defendants in the Mueller probe with state crimes, meaning a conviction would not be eligible for a presidential pardon. Politico followed up on the report the next day, and New York State prosecutors ultimately did file separate charges against Paul Manafort in March 2019.
He interviewed former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in Feb. 2019 about whether Trump asked him to interfere in the Mueller probe, and Melber later reported that Lewandowski’s response was false.

Ari broke the story of police repeatedly tasing a Virginia man until he died in police custody, an investigative report that led to an FBI investigation of the officers’ conduct.
On the night of the 2018 midterm elections, Melber broke a story live on MSNBC that Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee “intend to request President Trump’s tax returns.” In April 2019, United States House Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal carried out that plan, formally requesting Trump’s tax returns.
