Some people inside the FBI felt strongly that Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted for email scandal. But there were also plenty who trusted then-Director James Comey’s decision not to push for prosecution.

Donny Deutsch, a good friend of embattled lawyer Michael Cohen, says President Trump has a lot to worry about in New York where the U.S. Attorney is dealing with the Cohen case.

Deutsch, who considers himself an ex-friend of Trump, appeared Wednesday night on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Show, said of Cohen and Trump:

“I think one of the reasons Trump is so panicked,  I mean, he was his guy. Other than his kids, he was front and center.”

Meyers asks should Trump be worried about Cohen cooperating, to which he says:

“He should be very worried…What’s going to take him down is, and Michael Cohen will be one of the people very important to this, is I believe, the Southern District, and there going to what I call, RICO him.”
