A prominent conservative columnist stunned the hosts of Fox & Friends on Sunday by arguing that President Donald Trump would likely be indicted for campaign finance violations.
In a Fox News op-ed column, National Review writer Andrew McCarthy suggested that Michael Cohen’s admission that he made payments to two former Trump mistresses was a stepping stone to the indictment of the president.
“The Southern District of New York case,” McCarthy explained, “which is different from the Mueller case on Cohen — they are clearly going after the president on campaign finance violations.”
“It’s clear Trump is the target and he’ll be indicted eventually,” he added.
“That kind of stops me in my tracks,” Fox & Friends host Ed Henry told McCarthy. “We’ve heard all along that Justice Department guidance is that the president himself can’t be indicted — or herself down the road — cannot be indicted.”
McCarthy speculated that the Justice Department would wait until Trump leaves office to indict him.
“The president is not supposed to get an advantage from being president,” the conservative writer said. “All we say is he can’t be put through the criminal process while he’s president.”
“They can indict him and he can be tried down the road,” McCarthy revealed. “Are they setting the stage to file charges against him? I can’t come to any other conclusion.”

‘Everyone ultimately prefers their own race’: Morrissey claims he’s not racist because everybody else is

Here is how Republicans are reacting when confronted with the new rape allegation against Trump
Once again, President Donald Trump has been accused of a sexual assault — one of the most severe charges yet, in fact — and yet the Republican Party continues to make clear that it will not take these allegations seriously.
Journalist E. Jean Carroll detailed her account of Trump raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago in an article, in her new book, and in TV interviews. New York Magazine reported that it contacted two of her friends who confirmed that she told them about the assault shortly after it happened.
‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant
President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.
“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.
The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:
Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw
