Fox News: Prosecutors Have Evidence of Trump Felony and Will use it
Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday and Fox News’ Judge Napolitano weighed in on the bombshell ruling, offering a glimpse into President trump’s fate.
Speaking with Fox News anchor Shepard Smith about the Southern District of New York investigation into Cohen, the conservative pundit flatly said that federal prosecutors have evidence President Donald Trump committed a felony and they intend to use that evidence.
Career prosecutors here in New York City have evidence that the president of the United States committed a felony by ordering and paying Michael Cohen to break the law,” Napolitano said. “How do we know that? They told that to a federal judge. Under the rules, they can’t tell that to a federal judge unless they have that hardcore evidence. Under the rules, they can’t tell that to a federal judge unless they intend to do something with that evidence.
The felony is paying Michael Cohen to commit a felony. It’s pretty basic,” Napolitano replied, explaining: A hires B to shoot someone. A is as liable as if he had pulled the trigger. You pay someone to commit a crime, they commit the crime, you’re liable, criminally liable for their commission of that crime. That’s what the prosecutors told the federal judge.
Could this be the ‘smoking gun’ we’ve all been waiting for?
