George Zimmerman’s attorney Criag Sonner flees the studio before the interview with Lawrence O’Donnell

Why would Craig Sonner, the attorney for George Zimmerman agree to an interview with Lawrence O’Donnell; allow MSNBC to pick him up and take him to the Orlando Studio, only to get there and at the last minute, change his mind?

Sonner has been making his rounds visiting as many media outlets as he could fit into his schedule, in an effort to convince the public that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense and wasn’t motivated by race.

O’Donnell goes on to say:

Craig Sonner has been the first guest in the history of this particular show, to get scared, to be terrified, so terrified of coming on this show that he has literally run away. He’s in our car right now, taking him home from our studio, afraid to face the questioning he would face on this show. Watch out for wherever Craig Sonner shows up next on television, because wherever he shows up next on television has an obligation to put him through serious questioning about what he’s doing and what he knows, and the contradictions in the things he’s already said to on television.

Some of the questions Lawrence O’Donnell would have asked Sonner are:

Who is paying you, Mr. Lawyer?

Does George Zimmerman have a job?

Did you represent him when he was arrested for assault on a police
officer in 2005?

Your client was not injured enough to go to the hospital that night. You say he sought some sort of medical treatment the next day. “Do you have those medical records that you can show us?”

Joe Oliver: George Zimmerman’s new best friend

Click this link to see “Joe Oliver on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.”

As previously reported, Joe Oliver told ABC that his friend Zimmerman used a “term of endearment” when he called Martin a “ f—— goon” before he shot him, not a f—— coon” as many believed.

Joe Oliver proceeds to say that “I’m stepping forward for George because this is not a racial incident. He couldn’t stop crying. He’s a caring human being.” Oliver, 53 told Reuters in a telephone interview last weekend. I mean, he took a man’s life and he has no idea what to do about it. He’s extremely remorseful about it, Oliver said.

New York Times columnist Charles Blow who accused Oliver of “playing people like they’re stupid,” and Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart also joined in, leaving the former news anchor reeling.

“Let me clarify my relationship with George. My relationship with George is one like an older uncle. I’m old enough to be his father,” said Oliver.

Ask if he was a close Friend of George Zimmerman, Oliver went on to say that he never used the term “close” to describe his relationship with Zimmerman. ‘Well, that close was not ever my term, “he said.

“That close term was coined ever since I came forward to speak on his behalf.”

Oliver revealed that he quit his job to personally assist Zimmerman. Ask “How are you paying your expenses?” Oliver replied no one is paying his expenses.

Why would someone quit their job to help a friend unless someone is paying them to do so? Do you really believe that Oliver is coming forward to help Zimmerman from the bottom of his heart or from his frequent trips to the bank? “You be the judge!”
