CBS’ Rosenbaum: Trump ‘A Very Bad Person,’ Not a Criminal

CBS Legal Analyst Calls Trump Just ‘A Very Bad Person’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – CBS News Legal Analyst Thane Rosenbaum says former President Donald Trump’s actions leading to January 6 showed his true character. On WKOK’s On The Mark Thursday, Rosenbaum doubts the former President’s actions were criminal.  He says in order to find criminal charges, Rosenbaum says there needs to be a solid connection between former President Trump and those who attacked the U.S. Capitol.

Rosenbaum adds former President Trump leading the charge to attack the capitol is very different than just simply wanting to be there.

Attorney Rosenbaum says the only criminal offense the former president could be connected is pressuring former Vice President Mike Pence. Rosenbaum says that could violate a federal statute for encouraging the obstruction an official meeting of the federal government.
