A heated discussion ensued on “Fox & Friends” last night following the Trump indictment, according to Mediaite. Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade went head-to-head as 34 charges currently stared the former president in the face after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg complete his investigation into the alleged hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels.
But the discussion was not over that indictment or the possible 100 years in prison Trump might face if found guilty. The argument broke out over the investigation into classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago in August being headed by Special Counsel Jack Smith. Kilmeade was not pleased that Trump’s lawyer, Evan Corcoran, as well as his secret service officers, are being demanded to testify in that case.
Kilmeade argued that it was not right this was occurring, expressing his surprise that no one was stepping in to demand answers as to what was going on. But Doocy tried to explain that this happens often if someone gets “legal advice during the execution of a crime.” Kilmeade, however, claimed that it did not happen that frequently.
When it does, Doocy explained, the attorney-client privilege is a foregone conclusion. The two sparred over the matter a bit longer before Doocy compared the bout to being heckled.
The former president is facing a slew of investigations. From tax fraud, to the classified documents, to the alleged hush money payments to cover up an affair he was having with Stormy Daniels. This is reportedly the first time in U.S. history that a president is being charged with a crime. Trump maintains his innocence and pleaded not guilty at his arraignment.
He has recently hired a new attorney to join his team. Todd Blanche has defended other high-profile clients in the past, including former Trump associate Paul Manafort, and former Rudy Giuliani associate, Igor Fruman.
