Andrew McCarthy: Trump Probe Could Backfire on Democrats

Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live"

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy said Democrat-fueled investigations into Russia's alleged ties to President Donald Trump and his campaign staff could backfire.

"There's always been risk for them in this because at the end of the day, since there's nothing to the Russia hack, the election story," McCarthy said told Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg on Wednesday's "America Talks Live."

"The much more interesting and politically inflammatory question is was the incumbent government conducting an investigation of the presidential candidate of the opposition party during the campaign.

"And now that that's been raised, the media – after being in contempt for four months for us to believe there was a serious investigation into this – is now essentially saying to us how dare you believe our reporting that there was an investigation into this."

But McCarthy, a contributing editor for National Review and author of "Faithless Execution," published by Encounter Books, said accusations Trump's campaign was in cahoots with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton are not holding up.

"It's obvious Russia didn't hack the election, and there was no proof that there was a conspiracy of the kind they described between the Trump campaign, and Russia, and Putin's regime," he told Malzberg.

McCarthy served as an assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and prosecuted the terrorists involved in the 1993 attack on New York's World Trade Center.
