Judge Napolitano on Michael Cohen Guilty Plea: ‘Almost Literally the Tip of the Iceberg’ With Mueller Probe
Judge Andrew Napolitano has been a constant presence on Fox News Thursday morning, providing instant legal analysis on the bombshell news of Michael Cohen’s guilty plea to previously lying to Congress about communicating with Russian officials while working for the Trump organization.
Despite repeated claims previously made by then-candidate and now President Donald Trump had zero business dealings with Russia, court docs now reveal that Cohen had discussions with the office of Vladimir Putin regarding Trump Tower project in Moscow.
As CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin suggested, this shows that there was real “money in it” for Trump, which explains the benefits Trump would gain from a symbiotic relationship between Trump and Russia.
Napolitano would not go that far, but he did make plain that recent development strongly suggest that the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller almost certainly is sitting on more information. Or in his words, Cohen’s courtroom actions represent “almost literally the tip of the iceberg.”
