Mills Mocks Trump New York Trial, ‘Political Operatives’ After Former President

Rep. Cory Mills

Several Republican lawmakers, including Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), Representative Byron Donalds (R-FL), Governor Doug Burgum (R-ND), and former Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, recently appeared at the “hush money” trial of former President Donald Trump in New York City, denouncing it as a “sham” and “a farce.” Representative Cory Mills (R-FL), one of the attendants, discussed his visit afterward during an in-person appearance on Fox and Friends First, where he further denounced the money being made by trial witness Michael Cohen and Loren Merchan, daughter of Judge Juan Merchan.

Rep. Mills began by saying Cohen had “no credibility, no integrity, and continued to try and go ahead and evade the actual questions itself,” similarly accusing former adult film star Stormy Daniels, to whom Trump supposedly paid hush money after having an affair with her, of the same thing.

Additionally, he questioned why Trump is being issued a gag order at a time when he is pulling ahead of President Joe Biden in the polls and continuing to drum up support, to the point of approximately 100,000 supporters appearing in Wildwood, New Jersey, to hear him speak.

The answer, Rep. Mills said, is to “look at who benefits,” pointing at Loren Merchan, daughter of Judge Juan Merchan, who has raised $93 million for the campaigns of Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the Biden-Harris reelection campaign through this trial.

Moreover, Michael Cohen, as Mills continued, “has his mea culpa podcast where he actually sells items like President Trump behind bars for t-shirts. He has his two books out that he has published. The longer they drag this out, the more financially beneficial it is to both of the individuals. So I looked at this less as about it being a judge, a witness, and a jury, and more about political operatives who are coming after the president.”

Host Todd Piro then turned to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who mocked the suits worn by Mills and the other attendants at Trump’s trial, comparing them to Radio City Music Hall’s Rockettes dancers.

Mills suggested Maddow’s mockery was because “you cannot actually try and support the prosecutor. They cannot actually look at the fact that there is not any wrongdoing.”
