(Liberty Bell) – The arrest of President Trump could actually come to fruition but it doesn’t appear there’s any way the case against him could possibly stand in a legitimate court of law.
On Monday night, former legal adviser to Michael Cohen, Attorney Robert Costello, spoke to Tucker Carlson after he testified to the Manhattan Grand Jury investigating Trump.
Costello explained that he testified for two hours in front of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s Grand Jury.
He told Tucker Carlson, “I spoke to the jury for two hours… It was clear to me the Manhattan Grand Jury did not want to get to the truth.”
“I’m the one who decided to do this. A lot of people cautioned me against it because I have nothing to gain. The only thing I’m doing is trying to tell the truth to the grand jurors because I read all these lies in the media that are being promoted by one side,” said Costello. “If you see the full picture … If they want to go after Donald Trump and they have solid evidence, so be it.”
“But Michael Cohen is far from solid evidence,” added Costello. “This guy, by any prosecutors’ standard—and I used to be deputy chief of the criminal division in the Southern District of New York—I wouldn’t have touched a guy like Michael Cohen, especially if he’s a convicted perjurer.”
Costello told reporters following his testimony that Cohen is “totally unreliable” in the probe against Trump. He added that the disgraced lawyer is “a convicted perjurer.”
On Tuesday night, Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett discussed with Sean Hannity that Bragg has been hiding hundreds of pages of exculpatory evidence from the New York grand jury.
During the episode of “Hannity,” Jarrett also called for the disbarment of the prosecuting attorneys who are pushing for this sham indictment.
“I mentioned it yesterday, I think, when Bob Costello got into that Grand Jury room and told them, ‘Wait a minute. You don’t have the hundreds of pages I handed over to Alvin Bragg over here? You only have six cherry-picked documents?’ You know, hiding from grand juries exculpatory information is reprehensible and unconscionable,” Jarrett stated, not to mention unconstitutional.
“And the conduct of Alvin Bragg and his henchman Mark Pomerantz, who specifically says in his book, ‘We’re targeting zombies because we don’t like his beliefs,’ those guys should face disbarment proceedings,” he added.
Harvard Law Professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz also made an appearance on “Hannity” to discuss his perspective on the matter.
“You know, in my new book, “Get Trump,” I go through all of those four allegations and I say, there’s plenty of smoke, but there’s no fire,” Dershowitz argued. “And if there were a fire, it would be set by arsonists.”
“There is no crime committed in any of the four allegations, and I prove that categorically in my book “Get Trump,” he added. “Where did I get the name? Get Trump. I got that from Letitia James’ campaign slogan. Her campaign promise was, ‘I promise you I will get Trump’.”
“And I want to add something new that hasn’t been said before,” he continued. “I think that Bob Costello has changed this case dramatically. I think that Bragg now only has two possible results from that. Number one, he can say, alright, ‘I’m going to try to make the case without Cohen.’ He cannot use Cohen as a witness anymore.”
“That would be unethical because of the testimony that Costello gave,” he went on. “Or he could say, ‘Look, I have to drop the case.’ He may not be able to make it without Cohen. But if he can’t make it without Cohen, he can’t make it, because no ethical prosecutor is allowed to put on as a witness, somebody who has told the lies and has contradicted himself so much.”
“So I think that Bob Costello — it’s a game changer,” he added. “I think maybe that’s a reason for the delay here. I think ethical experts are now telling Bragg, wait a minute, you cannot use Cohen. So if you can make it through Pecker, if you can make it through some of the other people, okay, go ahead. But if you can’t make it without Cohen, you cannot bring this charge.”
“That’s a powerful statement,” Sean Hannity remarked.

As reported by The Epoch Times, Cohen is an actual convicted perjurer. In 2018, he pleaded guilty to “charges of tax evasion, making false statements to a federally insured bank, and campaign finance violations in connection with an alleged $130,000 payment to a lawyer representing adult actress Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.”
“Cohen claims that Trump, during his 2016 presidential campaign, directed him to arrange the payment to Daniels as ‘hush money’ in order to buy her silence after she claimed to have had an affair with Trump,” the report added. “The money was allegedly paid using campaign funds, a violation of campaign finance law.”
Trump is expected to face a potential indictment this week but thus far nothing has happened. Perhaps Bragg can no longer proceed without his political motives being blatantly obvious now that Cohen has been thoroughly discredited.
