Andy McCarthy: I Don’t Think Candidate Trump Did Anything Illegal with Hush Money Payments
EMANUEL: "If this was the cleanup guy and Michael Cohen pleads guilty does it mean candidate trump did anything illegal, sir?"
McCARTHY: "I do not think so. And it is mainly because the campaign finance laws work differently depending on what your status is good for example, as a candidate, President Trump did not have any dollar limit on what he was able to spend on the campaign. They are very technical laws the campaign finance laws and the president is not a lawyer. Michael Cohen is a lawyer. It can be very difficult for prosecutors to establish criminal state of mind for the president. "
