Scaramucci: Biden Won't Imprison Trump Even If Convicted

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has made a bold prediction about the potential outcome of Donald Trump's ongoing federal criminal cases. According to Scaramucci, President Joe Biden will not imprison Trump even if he is convicted, with a verdict expected to come in June, just months ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

Why this matters: The potential outcome of Trump's criminal cases has significant implications for the 2024 presidential election and the future of American politics. A conviction could set a historic precedent for holding former presidents accountable for their actions, while a decision not to imprison Trump could be seen as a miscarriage of justice.

Trump is currently facing dozens of felony charges across four separate criminal cases. In New York, he stands accused of breaking the law to conceal an affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Daniels recently testified in the hush money trial, describing an alleged brief sexual encounter with Trump back in 2006. Trump's then-lawyer Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 for her silence.

Despite his legal woes, Trump remains defiant and continues to characterize the cases against him as politically motivated attempts to derail his campaign. At a massive rally in Wildwood, New Jersey on Saturday that drew up to 100,000 attendees according to city officials, Trump lashed out at President Biden, calling him a "total moron" and blaming him for the criminal charges.

Trump also launched personal attacks against the prosecutor and judge in his New York trial. He referred to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as "fat Alvin" and claimed that both Bragg and New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan are "doing the bidding" for Biden. However, Trump has provided no evidence to support these accusations.

Meanwhile, Trump's ability to publicly comment on the New York case has been limited by a judge's gag order, with the threat of jail if he continues to violate it. Judge Merchan has already fined Trump $10,000 for breaking the order and warned, "The last thing I want to do is put you in jail... You are the former president of the United States and possibly the next president as well. There are many reasons why incarceration is truly a last resort for me."

In response, Trump defiantly declared, "Our Constitution is much more important than jail; it's not even close. I'll do that sacrifice any day." An ABC News poll indicates that 80% of Trump's supporters would still vote for him even if found guilty. As the election draws nearer and Trump's legal battles intensify, the nation watches to see if Scaramucci's prediction about Biden ultimately proves true.
