Scott Jennings, a former aide to President George W. Bush, on Tuesday tried to downplay prosecutors’ harsh words about Michael Cohen’s hush-money payments during the 2016 campaign.
“There is no way they are going to impeach Donald Trump over $280,000,” Jennings said on CNN, where he is a contributor. “I mean, look, the prosecutors’ theory here in this indictment, this is flimflam. They’re basically saying if only the American people had known Donald Trump had had sex with two women who weren’t his wife, the outcome of the election could have been different. This is flimflam.”
