JESSE WATTERS (HOST): For the first time in American history, a former president has been indicted. This day will go down as a dark day for America. President Trump's been indicted by New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg for a private civil settlement he made with a woman seven years ago. Bragg's star witnesses, Michael Cohen, a convicted felon and disbarred lawyer, and Stormy Daniels, a porn actress, who begged for hush money and worked with Michael Avenatti, another convicted felon who just so happened to get women to falsely accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. 

So where's the crime? A lawyer settled a civil case with a woman? How many civil cases has Bill Clinton settled with women? How many civil cases have members of Congress settled with women? We were told by the Democrats in the media that your private life's your private life. Everything was consensual. Now all of a sudden consensual is a felony? 

And they're literally prosecuting the former president over sex? Sex which Donald Trump denies? He claims he was extorted. The left has been saying they want to get the government out of the bedroom. They just kicked down the bedroom door.
