Donald Trump Facing ‘Multiple Legal Challenges’


A legal expert says it’s ‘pretty likely’ Donald Trump could be sent to jail if convicted of one of the numerous legal challenges he faces. The former president is the defendant in 29 lawsuits, according to a report in The Washington Post and has also become the subject of ‘several’ criminal investigations, including one which ended with lawyers accessing his tax returns — something Trump has previously tried to keep under wraps. According to the New York Times, Trump is being investigated for possible bank, tax and insurance fraud by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. Legal analyst Jay Michaelson told the Daily Beast’s The New Abnormal podcast back in February that if found guilty, it’s ‘pretty likely’ Trump could face jail time. “Is it possible that this would lead to criminal charges that would carry jail time? I would say that’s pretty likely, and we could have a grand jury indictment fairly soon. In this case, I’m not sure that Cy Vance is interested in settling with Donald Trump — even if Donald Trump could afford the fines that he would have to pay, which I don’t think he can.”
