Ty Cobb, a former White House attorney from 2017 to 2018, says former President Donald Trump “will go to jail” as the criminal investigation into the Mar-a-Lago documents case continues.

The National Archives recently found records allegedly proving Trump knew he shouldn’t have taken documents with him to Mar-a-Lago. This contradicts Trump’s claim that he did not know taking the documents was wrong, as well as his repeated false claims that he was allowed to take the documents.

Cobb spoke with Erin Burnett about the investigation in an interview on CNN.

“I wouldn’t necessarily expand the case to try to prove the Espionage Act piece of it because there is so much evidence of guilt knowledge on the espionage piece that all they really have to do is show that Trump moved these documents at various times when DOJ was either demanding them or actually present, that he filed falsely with the Justice Department, had his lawyers file falsely with the Justice Department and affidavit to the effect that none existed, which was shattered by the documents they discovered after the search and the many other misrepresentations that he and others have made on his behalf with regard to his possession of classified documents,” Cobb said.
