Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., says he thinks there is at least one indictment waiting for President Donald Trump following three days of explosive testimony by Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer.
'If you look at the payoffs to the women during the campaign at the direction of candidate Trump and making the payments while he was president, it's hard to believe how any prosecutor would not indict based on that evidence," Swalwell told NPR's Ari Shapiro.
Shapiro asked whether the crime was a campaign finance violation, and Swalwell responded: "Co-conspirator I think would be the crime. The violation was by Mr. Cohen and the co-conspirator would be Mr. Trump."
Swalwell, who sits on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, also told CNN the Cohen hearing is "all bad" for Trump after the president said Cohen lied to Congress except for one thing: "he said no collusion with the Russian hoax," Trump said.
"I wonder why he didn't lie about that too like he did about everything else," added the president. "I was actually impressed that he didn't say, 'well, I think there was collusion for this reason or that.' He didn't say that."
Swalwell said it was all bad.
"You have to take the good and the bad here, and when you take the good and the bad it’s all bad for Donald Trump," he told CNN host Wolf Blitzer.
