Is he being indicted on Federal charges or state charges....as one pointed out, if state, trump can't touch him.  Or am I mistaken?

You are correct and I had not thought of that. It means Trump has a real reason NOT to provide a pardon. Interesting.

Alferd, that's only a consolation prize. The key is placing enough serious charges against Cohen, so that he agrees to work with the prosecutors, telling them everything he knows. That is definitely the preferred option, much better than the 5th amendment leftover.

 

But that's why Trump will almost certainly pardon Cohen the day after he's charged. Of course, Trump Cult members won't see anything wrong that picture.

Oh how I hope so. If he doesn't for the sake of family, he deserves all the time the Judge can give him.

Will he flip?


Interesting...I wasn't aware the govt. usually shared with suspects we're drawing up the paperwork....  LOL.

 

Will he flip?  It might depend on how many years he's facing.  But trump will probably pardon him if he's convicted anywhere....you know, our faux "law and order" president of the faux GOP.
