Trump could face 400 years in prison if convicted on all charges

 June 10, 2023

Former President Donald Trump confirmed on Thursday that he had been indicted for allegedly mishandling classified documents and now he is facing a maximum penalty of 400 years in prison.

In the unlikely scenario that Trump is convicted on all charges and all sentences are imposed consecutively, Trump would spend the rest of his life in prison.

Trump is facing 37 charges alongside his aide Waltine Nauta, who is facing six charges. Nauta is Trump's personal assistant and served as Trump's White House valet during Trump's term as President.

The charges Trump is facing charges that range from "Willful Retention of National Defense Information," to giving “False Statements and Representations."

Nauta is facing charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice as well as making false statements presumably in connection with the alleged conspiracy.

Travesty of justice

Together, Trump and Nauta are facing a total of 490 years of prison time. This makes special prosecutor Jack Smith's claims of there being "one set of laws in this country and they apply to everyone," dubious at best.

Trump and Nauta stand accused of mishandling and storing classified information illegally. Other famous Americans accused of such crimes include Hillary Clinton, President Joe Biden, and former Vice President Mike Pence.

The night Trump announced he had been indicted, the Justice Department sent a letter to Pence informing him that he would face no charges for having classified documents at his Indiana home.

Just days later, Pence announced he would run against Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.

President Biden was caught with classified documents in his Delaware home as well as his offices in the Penn Biden Center and there have also been no charges for mishandling and possessing classified documents.

Hillary Clinton had a private email server with the server located at her Chappaqua, New York, home that she used to send emails containing "top secret information," according to a Justice Department investigation.

Only one of those individuals is facing any kind of prison time. If there actually was "one set of laws," then Biden and Clinton would have also faced criminal indictment. This is a travesty of justice that is going to backfire badly on the left.

Trumped up charges

The case against Donald Trump is dubious at best. Trump's legal team claims that Trump was within his rights to declassify information as President and the indictment feels like a Hail Mary meant to stop Trump's political rise.

Trump is leading the Republican field and will likely be the Republican nominee unless Democrats can get Trump convicted on trumped up charges.

Democrats know that President Biden will lose to Donald Trump in next years election so they are using the justice system to take their biggest political threat down.
