LevinTV host Mark Levin opened up his radio program Tuesday evening breaking down the day’s developments in the case of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who pled guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making a false statement to a bank, and two counts of campaign finance violation.

“The media are excited, thrilled … and yet, they don’t know what they’re talking about,” Levin, a constitutional attorney, began.

“In my opinion, everything that’s being said about the Cohen case is wrong. And remember who Cohen’s lawyer is: Lanny Davis, who hates Trump, who is a Hillary consigliere,” he added. “And this guy Michael Cohen is a sleazeball.”

“This is a guilty plea. It’s not an adjudication,” Levin explained. “Prosecutors and Cohen cut a deal. It’s a plea bargain. It’s not a precedent. … They obviously had more on Michael Cohen, or Michael Cohen wouldn’t have cut a deal.”

“Let’s say a candidate says, ‘Get a nondisclosure agreement, pay the funds out of my pocket, because I don’t want this person to attack me during the campaign for something that occurred before the campaign.’ That’s perfectly legal. That’s not a campaign expenditure.” Listen:
