James Trusty, former Federal Prosecutor, spoke to Brian Kilmeade about the gambling scandal surrounding Shohei Ohtani. Trusty does not think Ohtani or his interpreter have anything to worry about when it comes to California Code but it’s the Major League Baseball policy that he has to worry about. Trusty questioned Ohtani’s crisis management team’s initial response coming out with a completely contradictory story about the $4.5 million in payments, saying he did it to help the interpreter before putting him on stage to turn around and deny it all. Trusty says the big lingering questions are, if the interpreter was wrongly sending these payments 500,000 at a time, how did he get access to Ohtani’s account? How is it that he wired this money without his involvement? Trusty added, he does not see him being in any real legal jeopardy, particularly if he makes himself out as an open book. When asked if it will be buried like the Hunter Biden laptop or will MLB try to get to get to the bottom of what happened, Trusty said, “I don’t think it’ll be buried like Hunter Biden’s laptop for years and years and years of inaction.” Trusty thinks we’ll have answers sooner rather than later but it can take a year or so for the federal investigation to shake out and give us more certainty.
