Donald Trump May Get House Arrest Rather Than Prison Time


Donald Trump is currently facing 91 felonies across four separate indictments. If Trump was found guilty of all of them, that could result in over 700 years of prison time. Of course, he likely would simply get a collection of life sentences without parole. However, a DC insider has now suggested that Trump might not see the inside of a cell at all. “In a normal case, yes, he would be jailed for contempt of court, but as a practical matter, he can’t be. They can’t house the Secret Service in jail and all the rest of it. It’s likely to be house arrest,” explained longtime DC inside Jonathan Alter.

The main effect of a Trump guilty verdict would be that he would be barred from holding elected office until he had served his sentence. While some Republicans, such as Mike Huckabee, have warned that his could lead to a violent uprising from right-wing sources, that is likely nothing more than fear-mongering. However, it will likely not sit well with many people that Trump will get to live out his sentence in his palatial Bedminster estate or Mar-a-Lago.
