Inside the Trump Org Money Man's Interview with Investigators

  Inside the Trump Org Money Man's Interview with Investigators Jeff McConney, a high-ranking accountant at the Trump Organization, has reportedly already testified before the special grand jury in New York that yielded a criminal indictment against the company. But as prosecutors look at additional charges, never-before-seen testimony from McConney during an earlier civil case four years ago shows that while this Trump insider quickly acknowledges when the company runs afoul of the law, he does his best to protect the boss.

She said there was "a transparent attempt by Democrats to drag this all out ahead of 2022" because "they know they're gonna lose big and they're trying not to but they're casting their political opponents as the enemies of the state."

"The theatrics were intended to produce an emotional reaction, logic and facts be damned," Ingraham said.

"It is with that knowledge that we will unveil the Angle Awards for today's best performances," she went on.

"First, for best use of tears and dramatic pauses in a leading role, we have a tie, and it's between Congressmen [Adam] Kinzinger and [Adam] Schiff."

Ingraham then showed footage of Kinzinger, a Republican, and Schiff, a Democrat, making emotional remarks at the hearings before moving on to give more "awards" to three of the police officers who testified.

"God save us from these third-rate theatrics," Ingraham said. "Now the award for best use of an exaggeration in a supporting role, the winner is [Capitol Police Sergeant] Aquilino Gonell who thinks the pen is literally mightier than the sword."

She then showed part of Gonell's testimony where he was discussing the fact that rioters had weapons and mentioned a pen as he said that the rioters' intention was to hurt police officers.

"The award for blatant use of partisan politics when facts fail—the Angle Award goes to Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn," Ingraham went on, showing Dunn's testimony where he said he had told rioters he voted for President Joe Biden.

"He later used all his art to accuse [former President Donald] Trump of being a hitman," Ingraham said and showed viewers remarks where Dunn said a "hitman" had sent the rioters and should be held accountable.

Ingraham sarcastically said "but it's not about politics at all" before handing out her final award.

"And for best performance in an action role, the winner is [Metropolitan Police Officer] Michael Fanone," she said.

She then showed a brief clip of Fanone making impassioned remarks and banging his hand down on the desk in front of him.

Privately, he knows that he sexually harassed staffers. And I think it’s easier to explain his behavior publicly by saying there was some misunderstanding," Bennett told CBS.
