Obama AG Eric Holder Confirms Trump Could Be Prosecuted After Leaving Office




Former Attorney General Eric Holder said President Trump could be subject to prosecution after he leaves the White House over former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s claims that he made hush-money payments at the president’s direction.

Asked during a CNN interview whether the president could be prosecuted, Holder said, “I don’t think there’s any question about that.”

“We already have an indictment in the Southern District of New York,” the Obama administration official said, referencing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s guilty plea to campaign finance violations.



“Individual-1 is the president, and it would seem to me that the next attorney general, the next president, is going to have to make a determination,” he said.

Cohen is currently serving a three-year term prison sentence for campaign finance violations stemming from hush money payments.

Cohen testified before Congress in February that Trump directed him to make the illegal payments.
