Former Trump White House Counsel: ‘Facts are terrible’

By Jerry McConway, updated on March 11, 2024

One of the biggest questions that needs to be answered during this election is whether Trump will be found guilty of any of the federal indictments against him.

Former Trump White House counsel, attorney Ty Cobb, does not paint a hopeful picture for the former president.

Trump Facing 4 Federal Indictments

In addition to several civil suits, Donald Trump is facing four federal indictments: RICO for election fraud (Georgia – Fani Willis), hush money fraud (New York – Alvin Bragg), election interference (DC – Jack Smith), and mishandling of classified documents (Florida – Jack Smith).

The Fani Willis case has turned into a sideshow. Willis is now in danger of being removed from the case. If that happens, and we should find out any day now, if it will, the case will not be dropped. Someone else will be appointed to take it over, or if Willis is removed from office, the new Fulton County DA will have to decide if he or she wants to prosecute the case. Either way, this mess of Willis will delay the case.

The Bragg case is arguably the weakest of them all, simply because of how Bragg presented the case. Typically, all ledger entries related to the charge would be grouped together for one indictment. Bragg decided to stack the charges, which makes the case look far worse than it really is. If Trump loses this case, many legal experts believe the conviction will either be downgraded or outright dismissed on appeal. Bragg should have hit Trump with a fine and sent him on his way, but he clearly is looking to make a name for himself in this case.

The other two cases brought by Jack Smith would appear to be the worst two for Trump, and Smith has skillfully written these charges in a way that guarantees he will get at least one conviction against Trump.

Ty Cobb's Comments on Trump Legal Issues

The problem for Trump is that he is campaigning while also dancing around six cases, four of them federal. He has different teams of lawyers working on every case, which has more or less put Trump at their mercy, and thus far, they have really not done a good job. Trump has already lost the two civil cases, so he is now going through the appeals process on those while having to pay more than $500 million in judgments.

Cobb addressed this very issue, especially how stretched out Trump is right now. He stated:

"He has so many that he's probably not able to give any particular one you know, the degree of concentration that he would like. He has to rely on so many different lawyers and so many different teams of lawyers, some of whom are quite capable, others of whom have not distinguished themselves."

Cobb then commented on the charges, adding:

"One, the facts are terrible. His conduct is reprehensible, and he's the subject of 91 felony counts, four separate indictments and multiple civil cases. He's lost almost half a billion dollars. So, it's not like this is a smooth gliding ship."

Analysis

Donald Trump's best hope in these cases is to keep working on the delays in hopes that the trials' conclusion will not occur until after the general election. If Trump gets convicted before the election, it is not good news, as his support drops off significantly. Cobb even stated that if Trump does not win this election, "he's going to jail."

From a voter perspective, the timing of these cases is entirely unfair to voters, but many believe that was by design. Realistically, these indictments should have been filed against Trump at least a year ago to allow the cases to play out before the primary so GOP voters knew Trump's fate long before giving him the nod. This is precisely why Republicans in Congress and Donald Trump are claiming this is election interference.

We are now on the verge of the worst-possible-case scenario for the GOP. Trump winning the nomination, then getting convicted, which would all but hand the election to Joe Biden. So, you can see why conspiracy theories about this are running wild right now because if that was the Democrat plan, it has been carried out to a T.
