</p><p> “It is, but we’ve never had a president like Donald Trump before, John,” said Eisen. “I think it’s healthy that this is unfolding at the state level, including in New York, because you don’t like to see that specter of Donald Trump saying, well, the guy who beat me is now retaliating. There is no question about that, and I think that the jeopardy is substantial.”

And in New York State, when you create false books and records to cover up for another issue — and we know Michael Cohen pled guilty to campaign finance crimes in connection with these hush money payments — that’s a class E felony. That is a serious felony, and that’s just the hush money payments … there is so much more in New York, and that’s before you get to the other criminal and civil cases. So Donald Trump has got to be feeling very, very uneasy tonight.”</p><p> Watch below:
