Andrew McCarthy said that it’s very likely that Trump will be indicted, given his reading of the documents dropped by the Southern District of New York.
From the Hill:
Former federal prosecutor and Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy said Sunday that “it’s clear” President Trump is the target of a Southern District of New York investigation and that he will be indicted.
“The Southern District of New York case on Cohen, They are clearly going after the president on campaign finance violations and I think if you read the sentencing memo the Southern District filed in Cohen’s case, it’s clear that Trump is the target and he’ll be indicted eventually,” McCarthy said on “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
McCarthy, who also penned an op-ed on the subject, went on to say that under Department of Justice guidelines, a sitting U.S. president cannot be indicted. But he noted that Trump would not simply “get an advantage from being president.”
“All we say is he can’t be put through the criminal process while he’s president,” McCarthy said. “I think what can happen is they could indict and he could be tried down the road when he’s out of office.
Very interesting, especially given that McCarthy has been very critical of Mueller and the investigation in general, so he can’t be accused of being one of those evil nevertrumper types we hate so much.
