James Comey: Trump ‘Certainly Close’ To Being Unindicted Co-Conspirator
Former FBI Director James Comey believes President Trump is "certainly close" to being an unindicted co-conspirator in an ongoing investigation into the 2016 presidential campaign.????According to The Hill, Comey told MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace during an event that the President isn’t an unindicted co-conspirator in former lawyer Michael Cohen’s crimes “in the formal sense.” Saying:????“Not in the formal sense that he’s been named in an indictment … But if he’s not there, he’s certainly close given the language in the filing that the crimes were committed at his direction.”????This comes on the heels of the publication of a filing from federal prosecutors that said Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, "acted in coordination with and at the direction of" Trump in steering illegal payments during the 2016 presidential campaign.
????Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations in August.
