Last week, Donald Trump broke another record: he became the first US president to be indicted once but twice. Cheer? This one was even a federal indictment, for his alleged mishandling of classified government documents. He could possibly become the first POTUS to find himself in the slammer – and if convicted of all the charges he’s been charged with, he’d face a truly staggering time in the tinkle.
On Friday, the day after news of Trump’s indictment broke, once again the Justice Department went to unseal him, releasing all 37 charges against him. The Washington Post broken down how much jail time comes with each conviction:
1. 31 counts of willfully withholding national defense information – 10 years each
2. 3 counts of withholding or concealing documents in a federal investigation – 20 years each
3. 2 counts of misrepresentation — 5 years each
4. 1 count of conspiracy to obstruct justice — 20 years
It’s 400 years in prison – or, as the Job he says, “longer than the United States is a country”.
But this is only one of the cases that will be judged. Mediated went to add 34 criminal counts he faces in the case of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is investigating alleged money payments he made to Stormy Daniels. If convicted of all of that, that’s another 136 years, bringing his time behind bars to 536 years.
Will Trump be found guilty on all 71 counts? Probably not. Hell, he might not even be convicted of it (although that seems unlikely). But if he is, he will not only have to campaign from the slammer, but if he wins, he may also have to serve from it. Luckily for him, he should probably do it from one of those country club jails where he can rant about strangers like he does at Mar-a-Lago.
