The Five Takes on Dem's Claim That 'Walls Are Closing In' on Trump After Cohen Sentence
The panel on "The Five" reacted to a Democratic lawmaker claiming that Michael Cohen's sentencing is the latest proof "the walls are closing in" on President Trump.
Rep. Denny Heck of Washington state said on CNN that "the writing is on the wall" when it comes to the impending "beginning of the end of the Trump administration."
Jesse Watters blasted Heck, and referenced a piece by Heritage fellow Hans von Spakovsky that said Cohen -- Trump's former attorney -- did not actually violate campaign finance law.
"A lot of people who know campaign finance law don't believe [this] violates the law," he said.
Watters predicted that the impeachment hopes of people like Heck and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) will "activate the Republican base" in 2020 the way "injustices" against Justice Brett Kavanaugh did in the 2018 elections.
He said that if voters see "partisan prosecutors" going after a president they elected, the blowback will be "astronomical" and they will show up in droves to keep him in office.
Greg Gutfeld agreed, saying such threats make Trump look like "an orange Fonzie" -- a reference to Henry Winkler's lovable TV character.
Juan Williams said impeachment is not very "realistic" since the to-be deputy Democratic leader in the House, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, called for his caucus to wait on Robert Mueller's final recommendation before proceeding with anything.
