Former WH Attorney Proven Right About Trump Conviction

( – Ty Cobb, a former attorney for the White House under President Donald Trump’s administration, said on Tuesday, May 28 that he anticipates that Trump will be found guilty in his ongoing hush money trial in New York.

The case is over alleged hush money payments Trump paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet during the 2016 election about a prior affair between the two of them. Trump, who is the presumptive presidential candidate for the Republican party, faces more than thirty felony counts in the trial, though he denies any wrongdoing and claims the case is politically motivated against him. The trial is historic because it is the first criminal trial against any American president.

Closing arguments began on Tuesday, May 28 and jury deliberations will likely begin the same week. Cobb, who has served as both a white-collar defense attorney as well as a federal prosecutor, predicts about four days of jury deliberations, meaning a verdict is possible by Friday, May 31.

Trump’s attorney, Todd Blanche, thanked the jurors during his closing arguments before asserting that Trump is innocent of the crimes he has been accused of. Blanche suggested that the District Attorney in the case did not meet the burden of proof required to find the former president guilty, claiming that jurors should be “wanting more.”

An unexpected twist in the trial was when Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, took the stand and admitted that he stole money from the Trump Organization during his time in Trump’s employ. Cohen also has a prior conviction for lying under oath, leading many to question Cohen’s reliability in his testimony.

Cobb anticipates a guilty verdict in the trial based on the instructions given to the jury by the District Attorney and the judge in the case, suggesting that a guilty verdict is “virtually require[d]” by the instructions. Cobb also described Trump as the “greatest threat to Democracy” in the history of America.
