Dem Sen. Blumenthal: 'The Walls Are Closing in on Donald Trump'

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) reacted to the Southern District of New York’s sentencing memo on former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen by stating that the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place, “and the walls are closing in on Donald Trump and his inner circle, including his family.” Blumenthal said, “This sentencing memorandum, first of all, is a bombshell in showing why prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, independent of the special counsel, believe that Donald Trump committed a felony that enabled him, or at least helped him to become president.

So, the pieces of the mosaic, or the puzzle, are coming into place, and the walls are closing in on Donald Trump and his inner circle, including his family.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
