REPORT: Trump Legal Team Fighting to Keep Trump Out of Jail

Things may be a bit dicier for former President Trump than he is letting on.

It is no secret that Trump has legal problems the size of Mt. Rushmore right now, but he has been pushing them all aside as nothing burgers.

Rumors are starting to surface that the investigation being handled by special counsel Jack Smith is about to come to fruition, possibly netting dozens of indictments.

That being the case, behind the scenes, Trump’s legal team is reportedly working feverishly to keep the former president out of jail, reports Newsweek.

Stacking Up

Many of the cases against Trump are just political attacks or vendettas to grab some headlines. In those instances, I am honestly not expecting too much to happen.

When it comes to the Manhattan business records case, which, for the record, I believe is complete and utter nonsense, as well as the classified records case being investigated by the special counsel, well, I think Trump could have a problem.

This is especially true if the case lands before a liberal judge.

In just those two cases, Trump is facing more than 70 felony charges. He has, of course, pleaded not guilty to them, but he has an uphill battle, especially in the case that will be tried in New York, where Trump is not likely to have a friendly audience.

To defend himself, Trump has put together a rock star roster of attorneys, including Todd Blanche, leading the classified documents case, Chris Kise, who is working with Blanche, Lindsey Halligan, also working with Blanche, Christina Bobb, who was present during the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago, and Evan Corcoran, who had recused himself from the case after being forced to testify.

Also working with Trump are Alina Habba, Joe Tacopina, Susan Necheles, Chad Siegel, and Drew Finding.

These are all big names in the legal world, and with those names and clout comes some hefty legal bills, which have to be taking a toll on Trump’s finances.

If Trump’s legal team does manage to keep him out of jail, it will be interesting to see post-trial Trump once those legal bills start to come in and he has to settle up.

Is that money going to come from Trump or will he tap into his campaign funds to pay these bills as he has done in the past? That would be a double-edged sword, I believe.

He would not only reduce the amount of money in his war chest to fight off any challenges in the primary (and general if he gets the nod), but there is also the negative perception that would leave for his supporters in that he was using funds they donated to help him win the presidency for his legal defense.

Just a little something to keep an eye on as these cases start to come to trial.
