“It was disappointing, but not unexpected. Evan had been held for almost 15 months in pretrial detention, so the natural next step was then to move to trial, even though they falsely accused him. It’s hugely unfair to him,” Wall Street Journal deputy editor Paul Beckett said.

Beckett joined NewsNation’s “Morning in America” to discuss the latest developments in Gershkovich’s case, saying he is likely to be found guilty.
