‘That stops me in my tracks’: Conservative writer stuns Fox & Friends by revealing Trump likely to be indicted

Published

on

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.”

The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.

Published

on

Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.

A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
