Lori Loughlin pleads not guilty in college admissions scam

Lori Loughlin is scared that going to trial for charges related to the college admissions scandal will damage her daughters, Isabella and YouTube star Olivia Jade, a new report claims.

“Lori is very concerned about what a trial will do to her daughters. It will undermine every accomplishment they have in the future and it will be part of their story forever,” an insider told People in a piece released on Wednesday.

Loughlin, 54, and husband Mossimo Giannulli pleaded not guilty to fraud and conspiracy charges on Monday.

The couple are accused of bribing Olivia Jade and Isabella’s ways into the University of Southern California (USC) for a cool $500,000 each with alleged scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer. The girls were reportedly recruited for the crew team despite not being coxswains in high school. Loughlin and Giannulli, 55, were arrested in March and each released on $1 million bonds.

The couple rejected a plea bargain and were slapped with additional charges of money laundering. If convicted of all counts against them, they face up to 40 years behind bars, a prospect that’s terrifying for the former “Full House” star and the fashion designer. Isabella and Olivia’s statuses at USC are reportedly on hold.

“It’s not in their best interest for this to go to trial, and Lori knows it,” the source admitted. “Because if it goes to trial, the girls will have to take the stand, and be cross examined by a prosecution that wants nothing more than to put a notch on their belt,” says the legal source.

“Lori is very afraid that her daughters will have to testify. That will traumatize them even more,” the source added.

Loughlin, who previously was reported to have believed she’d just get a slap on the wrist for her alleged offenses, is said to be horrified at the idea of jailtime.

“She will continue to make a good faith effort to put this case behind her,” the source said, “and she hopes the prosecutors will do the same.”

Aside from her potential prison time and her public image taking a beating, Loughlin is reportedly nervous that her relationships with her daughters won’t recover after the scandal.

“Yes, she can think about the public perception of her, but that’s nothing compared to what her daughters think of her,” the insider said.

As for how her daughters feel about her now, it’s unclear: She was spotted laughing it up with Isabella after the scandal broke, but sources have claimed Olivia Jade feels that Loughlin and Giannulli have “ruined her life” by bribing her way into college, which she allegedly never wanted to attend in the first place.

CNN’s April Ryan calls for Sarah Sanders to be fired

Fox News Flash top headlines for April 18

CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report.

In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything.

Ryan, who is also a White House reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, blasted the press secretary on Thursday night for “lying” to the American people.

“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett. “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ she needs to go.”

The CNN pundit suggested that since President Trump “won’t take the fall” that Sanders might instead.

“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room… The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan continued. “Then, on top of all that, she says the press is fake when she’s faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake? We’ve had colleagues who’ve had to move from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called ‘fake’ and a ‘loser’ and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
