Conservative attorney George Conway said Saturday that he believes there is a “substantial possibility” of Trump being found guilty of multiple felonies in various ongoing cases and being incarcerated.
“I think there is a substantial possibility that he goes to jail,” Conway said during an interview on CNN. “I think that he is going to be found guilty of multiple felonies in this and other cases.”
Conway’s belief in Trump’s potential conviction stems from what he perceives as a lack of remorse and a refusal to take responsibility for his alleged misconduct. He firmly asserted that a significant sentence of imprisonment would be appropriate given these circumstances.
“Given the fact that he shows no remorse and no willingness to bear any responsibility for his misconduct, I think that a substantial sentence of incarceration is in order,” Conway explained
The legal woes of Trump have continued to mount, as evidenced by his recent not guilty plea to 37 charges relating to the mishandling of classified documents and attempts to obstruct their recovery by the federal government. This plea follows a prior not guilty plea to 34 felony counts connected to falsifying business records in connection with a hush money payment made in 2016. Furthermore, investigations by the Justice Department and the Fulton County district attorney into Trump’s involvement in the January 6th riot and efforts to overturn the 2020 election remain ongoing.
While Trump and his Republican allies have consistently criticized the indictments and investigations, alleging a biased justice system targeting conservatives, Conway dismissed these claims as baseless. He described them as “complete nonsense” and accused them of failing to grasp the seriousness of the allegations.
Conway also highlighted their premature criticism of the special counsel and the indictment, asserting that such actions were “completely hypocritical.” He further criticized the Republicans, traditionally positioning themselves as champions of law and order, for seemingly turning a blind eye to the enforcement of the law in the case of one of their own.
