Bloomberg: Trump will not be put in jail if indicted


If charges are brought against him, the 45th U.S. President Donald Trump won't be handcuffed and taken to a cell, an insider told Bloomberg. Trump suggested last week that he might be taken into custody on March 21.

The agency claims that in addition to having his fingerprints collected, the former President might also be photographed. The United States Secret Service agents designated to Mr. Trump may continue to be in charge of him.

Such handling of the defendant is unusual for the United States, as Bloomberg points out. Temidayo Aganga-Williams, a former prosecutor, informed the organization that being a past President "will ensure special treatment." "He is less likely to be perceived as a security danger than a defendant who has never been tried before," the expert said.

The organization added that the accusations that could be made against Mr. Trump do not constitute significant criminal offenses. The subject of his arrest won't be brought up in this context.

A long-running case regarding payments made by Mr. Trump's attorney to porn actress Stormy Daniels may lead to the criminal prosecution of Mr. Trump. The New York district attorney's office recently sent the case for reconsideration after it had previously been dismissed. The former President referred to the lawsuit as politically motivated and legally invalid and urged his supporters to defend democracy.
