Appearing on Fox & Friends Sunday morning, Fox News contributor and former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy said he believes President Donald Trump will be indicted on federal campaign finance charges in Manhattan Federal Court, according to Newsweek.
McCarthy told host Pete Hegseth that prosecutors are “clearly going after the president on campaign finance violations.”
“[In] the Southern District of New York case, which is different from the Mueller case, they are clearly going after the president on campaign finance violations and 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, before Fox News host Ed Henry responded: “That kind of stops me in my tracks."
McCarthy made the same case in an op-ed published Saturday on Fox News:
“The major takeaway from the 40-page sentencing memorandum filed by federal prosecutors Friday for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, is this: The president is very likely to be indicted on a charge of violating federal campaign finance laws,” he wrote.
“Cohen earlier pleaded guilty to multiple counts of business and tax fraud, violating campaign finance law, and making false statements to Congress regarding unsuccessful efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow,” McCarthy explained. “Yes, Cohen has stated he did the hands-on work in orchestrating hush-money payments to two women who claim to have had sexual liaisons with Trump many years ago (liaisons Trump denies).”
