Former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart reached a stunning conclusion after summarizing the latest revelations about President Donald Trump.
While appearing on CNN, Lockhart said that everything we’ve learned about Russian interference in the 2016 election and the president’s actions to cover up past affairs with mistresses at the very end of the campaign suggest that the president’s legitimacy should be in doubt.
“A case has been built this week that the president was not legitimately elected,” he said. “If you look at the Russia stuff and the campaign finance stuff, and the fact that 40,000 votes going the other way over three states [would have swung the election]… we don’t know. And that’s why this is important.”
Lockhart’s conclusion that Trump may not have been legitimately elected came after he watched a clip of former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen saying that the president knew that he was doing something wrong when he authorized Cohen to make hush-money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016.
After watching the clip, CNN host John Berman commented that Cohen seemed to doing everything in his power to implicate the president in a felony.
“That is literally a checklist for how a campaign finance violation becomes criminal,” he said.
