President Trump is “close” to being an unindicted co-conspirator in Robert Mueller’s investigation of former Trump’s former lawyer, according to fired FBI Director James Comey.
“Not in the formal sense that he’s been named in an indictment,” Comey said during a New York City event hosted by MSNBC. “But if he’s not there, he’s certainly close given the language in the filing that the crimes were committed at his direction.”
Comey’s comment came after Trump last week referred to in a sentencing memo filed by New York federal prosecutors in relation to Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer.
Comey added Sunday that if Trump weren’t president, he would be exposed legally. “That person would be in serious jeopardy of being charged because the government wouldn’t make that sponsoring allegation if they weren’t seriously contemplating going forward with criminal charges,” he said. “Where it stands here I can’t say.”
