We Now Have ‘Real Evidence Of Serious Criminal Wrongdoing By Trump’: Legal Expert Says After Roger Stone Trial


Lawfare Institute general counsel Susan Hennessey took to Twitter after former Trump campaign official Rick Gates testified on Tuesday that Donald Trump told him in 2016 that more damaging information would soon come out about Hillary Clinton shortly after he got off the phone with Roger Stone.

Hennessey says Gates’s testimony is “incredibly significant” and suggests that the president perjured himself in his written answers to the special counsel.

“People should resist the temptation to shrug this off as just confirmation of what we already knew,” she says. “This is real evidence of serious criminal wrongdoing by the president.”

Noting that Gates told the court that two Secret Service agents also witnessed the call between Stone and Trump, Hennessey says that this testimony could be much more than a simple “he-said-he-said” dispute.

“Not only does it demonstrate that Trump had advance knowledge of Wikileaks releases of hacked emails, it also shows additional witnesses who can confirm that the president gave false written answers to investigators in violation of the law,” she writes.
