Let the Indictments Begin

Michael Cohen finished testifying Wednesday before the Manhattan grand jury that may indict Donald Trump — and on his way out, he warned Republicans to "think twice" about supporting the former president.
Cohen is expected to be the last witness to testify before the panel as the Manhattan district attorney's office appears to move closer to winning an indictment of Trump.
Outside the Lower Manhattan building where the grand jury meets, Cohen told reporters he hopes the American people "see fit" to call Trump out "for the things that he's doing, the things that he says."
"At the end of the day, Donald Trump needs to be held accountable for his dirty deeds, if in fact that's the way that the facts play out," Cohen said, adding that the case is about "holding accountability, truth to power, and everything in between."
He also said he'd "prefer somebody else" over Trump for the GOP 2024 presidential nominee.
