WATCH: NYT’s Haberman Explains Why Judges Statement on Trump Criminality is a Big Deal

To the dismay of many, Donald Trump has been able to avoid being charged criminally for anything over the last year. Over time, though, that fact could change.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge David Carter in Los Angeles declared that is it “more likely than not,” that Trump committed felonies in his attempt to overturn the election. During a CNN spot, Maggie Haberman explained why this is a big deal.

The New York Times reporter explained:

“It’s a big deal, and it isn’t quite what it looks like. It’s not an indictment. This is not coming from the Justice Department, but this is an external person, a judge, somebody making a very declarative statement about what this meant. And so to the extent we are seeing the Justice Department facing pressure from outside points, I do think that it’s significant.”

Haberman continued, “This is the clearest anyone has been, anyone in a real position of such seniority and authority, to say this was wrong. There’s a key quote in there about it being ‘a coup in search of a legal argument.’ That’s a pretty damning statement.”
