Joy Ann Reid: Trump, It Seems to Me, Has the Protection of Merrick Garland

‘He’s the only one who paid for that crime’

EXCERPT:

REID: "We are of the same kind of cynical mentality about Trump, and the Michael Cohen case is what kind of teaches me what to expect. Because Michael Cohen was convicted of committing a crime. He committed that crime not for himself, not because he had an affair with Stormy Daniels, but because Donald Trump did, and he paid money that he took out of his account and that Trump reimbursed him for, because Trump wanted to cover that up, not him. He’s the only one who paid for that crime. So it seems to me that these one might say fools who threw their lives away, you know, we’re talking about a 68-year-old OB/GYN from Massachusetts, three active duty marines, a guy who had a job for 10 months and now lost all of his family, I mean, you can go through it, a real estate agent, all these people are facing a few months to maybe years in prison, but Trump, it seems to me, has the protection of Merrick Garland, who I assume doesn’t have whatever it is it takes to indict him.”
