House Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) said that Trump should be in prison with his former lawyer Michael Cohen.
Rep. Cohen said on MSNBC, “When he went out there and said, Russia, are you listening? Why would he even say that if he didn’t know, Russia was playing ball with him? You have this guy in the southern district as individual one. The office of the legal counsel’s memorandum that says you can’t indict a sitting president. A man who should have been indicted twice should be up the river with Michael Cohen and both times it was to win the election. Paying money to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, that was a campaign violation. Not reporting it to the FBI, that was to win the election. Obstruction of justice came later. He’ll do anything to win. The guy is not playing by the rules, and he’s doing it now with not complying to document requests, urging people not to comply with subpoena requests and then going after people like Elijah Cummings.”

Trump is a career criminal, and he likely does belong in prison for the crimes that Rep. Cohen laid out and many more. If Trump loses the election in 2020, he is likely to go from the White House to the courthouse. Someone is going to indict Trump when he leaves office, as Steve Cohen’s view is not outside of the mainstream that this is a man who should have never been elected president who belongs in prison.
