Ex-State Department Spokesperson Drops Truth Bomb on Fox News Hosts: Trump 'Would Have Been Indicted Yesterday' Were He Not President

Fox News Channel's Outnumbered co-host Marie Harf told the panel on Wednesday that President Donald Trump could have been booked into jail on Tuesday if he wasn't the sitting president.


“I think that if Donald Trump wasn’t president and didn’t have those Justice Department guidelines, there’s a good chance he would have been indicted yesterday as co-conspirator in this and a lot of legal experts think that’s the case,” Harf explained “Also, take a step back, John Edwards was brought to trial over something very similar with less evidence.”

He also elaborated about the role former Trump fixer Michael Cohen might play going forward amid his plea deal.

“The real question is, what else doesn’t Michael know? What has he told Mueller? What has he told prosecutors working on other cases?" Harf asked. "He’s been intimately involved with the Trump Organization and Donald Trump for a very, very long time and I think that’s why you saw last night Donald Trump being careful not going after him at that rally because I think the president might be a little nervous what Cohen knows.”
