Former President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer and hatchet man Michael Cohen said he’s sure that his former boss is getting closer to being indicted and that he would likely sell classified information if that happens.
“Donald will be indicted. Whether or not he ends up going to prison is whole other story. There could be, based upon the fact that he’s a former president of the United States — it may not be a prison environment that he can ultimately get sentenced to, but rather a very strict home confinement scenario,” Cohen said on MSNBC.
“Let’s not forget that for four years, despite the fact that he’s really a very dumb person and does not have a great recollection or memory, nevertheless for four years he still classified briefings, national security classified briefings. And if you think Donald wouldn’t sell any of that information, maybe he’s already done so, but if you think he would not sell it for a can of tuna or a package of stamps, you would be inaccurate. So I think for national security’s sake, I think they would put him in a very strict home confinement scenario.”
Despite Cohen’s stated belief that Trump will be indicted, President Joe Biden’s own classified documents scandal – and its possible connection to his son Hunter’s business dealings – make it almost certain that the former president will not be charged.
