“With this news, Donald Trump, those around him, and the country as a whole inch closer to the prospect that a former president could face criminal charges, and possibly even prison time. The country has not been through anything like this before.”
Kimberly Wehle, in an editorial on the possibility that former President Trump could be criminally prosecuted
New York State Attorney General Leticia James announced recently that her office is investigating the Trump Organization in a “criminal capacity”. The endeavor began in 2019 after former Trump cohort Michael Cohen revealed that the Trump Organization had lied about its asset value in order to obtain loans and insurance and limit its tax liability. If Trump actually is prosecuted, it will be the first time for a former President in U.S. history.
A former assistant U.S. attorney who teaches law at the University of Baltimore, Wehle also is known for her articles for the conservative website “The Bulwark”.

Do you think they’ll actually try him for anything?
I don’t know, but I think there’s a strong possibility of it. That would be a glorious moment, though!
Would it? So many people still kiss his ass. There are people around here that still have their campaign signs up. What would they do if their fearless leader was put in a jail cell?
If Trump was actually jailed, his die-hard supporters would probably view him as some kind of martyr; you know – wrongfully imprisoned and all that. You just can’t change the minds of some people!
No. They scare me though.
