Sunny Hostin insists to pessimist Joy Behar that Trump will be indicted for ‘The View’: ‘There’s evidence’

After Donald Trump gave his first speech in DC since leaving the White House after losing the election, View weighed in on the former president’s future as the Jan. 6 hearings continue and a criminal investigation into Trump continues.

As Attorney General Merrick Garland insists to NBC News, “We will hold accountable anyone who is criminally responsible for attempting to interfere with the transfer – a legitimate and legal transfer of power from one administration to another,” the panel sparked a debate about the chances of Trump facing consequences for once or throwing himself out of the grip of justice again.

Whoopi Goldberg reacted happily to Garland’s words, telling the panel, “It’s all pretty overwhelming, I think!” but her co-host Joy Behar was less cheerful. Behar said she felt “unsure” about Trump’s possible indictment, adding, “I don’t believe it.”

His dark point of view had intrigued Sunny Hostin. She asked Behar, “You don’t think he’ll be prosecuted?” Even though I’ve been saying it for a few months, Joy?

Behar, bravely confronting the panel member with the most legal experience, replied, “You know I have the highest regard for you, my dear, and I believe you, but in my gut I’m like: “He’s such a snake. He’ll find a way out.

Hostin was ready to deploy her legal expertise, telling Behar to trust Merrick Garland, who is a “stealthy prosecutor” and “an expert in domestic terrorism.”

Highlighting Garland’s work prosecuting Timothy McVeigh and Ted Kaczynski, Hostin added, “There have been no leaks in these investigations, so he is the right person at the right time to do this job. Donald Trump, I believe, will be indicted for several things. He will be indicted for seditious conspiracy, which is very difficult to prove, but we have the proof. We saw it during the January 6 hearings.

His confidence still hasn’t swayed Behar, who asked “what part” made Hostin believe Trump would be convicted of seditious conspiracy.

Once again, Hostin came back with plenty of support for her theory. While she told Behar it can be “very difficult to prove intent,” she said the committee presented evidence against Trump, including audio and damning testimony.

“You have all these people saying well, he wanted to go to the Capitol. He said these things, he tried to attack a Secret Service agent. He tried to grab the steering wheel. You know what happened. His intent is very clear,” Hostin said, later adding, “There is evidence, Joy.

When Behar, never wanting to drop a point easily, said, “There’s no hard proof that I see here,” Hostin insisted, “You don’t need to have hard proof. … You don’t have to see it’s been raining when people arrive with wet umbrellas and water on their shoulders. You don’t have to, Joy, have irrefutable proof. All the evidence is there. »
