‘Fox and Friends’ Co-Hosts Clash Over Trump’s Political Future

The “Fox & Friends” panelists reportedly discussed whether or not former President Trump faces major legal risks as a result of his indictment this week for his efforts to rig the 2020 election, which culminated in his supporters’ attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Ty Cobb, a former Trump attorney, was reported by Steve Doocy as claiming that the evidence against the former president is “overwhelming” and that he is “toast,” when making remarks on CNN on Thursday night.

“No, but think about everybody around Trump in in casual conversation, in serious conversation on tour and beyond, will that go five seconds without him saying he won the election? He was down Sean Hannity’s throat for not defending him,” Kilmeade said.

“Brian, what I said was ,Ty Cobb said they have several people who were told by Trump, ‘I know I lost,’” Doocy then said in response.

“I look, that’s fine, wait a second. So they believe that there’s going to be traction in a courtroom because Ty Cobb and a few other people said he lost when almost everybody else said he won. Why is that even part of this legal case? Because he sincerely believed that he lost the election. I didn’t even think that was going to be even brought up. A lot of people just said to him, ‘Drop it. I know how you feel. Change the subject.’” Kilmeade responded.

According to legal experts, in order to prosecute Trump, the prosecution will need to show that he knew he would lose the 2020 election but nevertheless attempted to change the results.
