New York Times’ Maggie Haberman appeared on CNN on Friday hours after the Jan. 6 committee issued a damning report that recommended criminal charges be filed against Donald Trump.
Haberman told co-hosts Don Lemon and Sarah Sidner that the former president has a lot of legal troubles heading his way, despite what happens with the recent January 6 report.
As Haberman noted, even if nothing comes out of the Trump criminal referrals to the Department of Justice and he is not indicted, the list of legal woes “goes on.”
“I want to just make one point that I think gets overlooked, and this is not related to the report — other than that, it’s adjacent to it,” she began. “You know, there’s a lot of focus on will Donald Trump get indicted. Even if Donald Trump doesn’t get indicted, he is facing this huge flurry of litigation this year. He’s facing trials in a number of cases.”
She then added, “He is facing a tough legal year no matter what happens here.”
