Senior Breitbart News editor-at-large Joel Pollack appeared Friday on Dr. Michael Savage's podcast, and he stated that it was conceivable for Donald Trump to be railroaded by a jury in Washington, D.C.
However, Pollak asserted that Trump could take the oath of office in prison, pardon himself, and walk out a free man during the Wednesday-recorded interview broadcast on the Michael Savage Show, as Breitbart News reported.
Dr. Savage questioned Pollak regarding the possibility, voiced by criminal defense attorney Dan Horowitz, that some of Trump's 18 co-defendants in the recent Georgia indictment may "flip" on the former president.
Trump Could Win Election in JAIL?!

The Attorney's Take
Horowitz suggested that the district attorney for Fulton County, Georgia, Fani Willis, would be successful in turning at least some of the co-defendants against Trump.
However, one of the co-defendants, former White House Chief of Staff Mike Meadows, has already asked to have the case removed to federal court, where he will hope to have charges against him dismissed. Horowitz's prediction was based on the assumption that Willis would be successful.
Willis would attempt to "flip" some of Trump's former lawyers, aides, and allies against him, Pollak acknowledged. However, he made it clear that they would still be subject to investigation by the opposing party.
He said that out of the four indictments that have been brought against Trump so far — one in a court in Manhattan, one in a federal court in Miami, another in a federal court in Washington, D.C., and another in Fulton County — the one that is currently pending in New York would be the easiest to overturn.
Impact of Other Indictments
In a similar vein, he stated that the federal indictment that is currently being processed in Miami, which is known as the "documents" case, may encounter some difficulties.
However, Pollak suggested that the indictment in D.C. — the "Jan. 6" case — was in a venue that was so adverse for Trump that it would be quite easy to picture the former president being convicted, or even placed in pre-trial detention.
Nevertheless, he suggested that if Trump wins the election, he might be able to extricate himself, at least from the federal accusations that have been brought against him.
Whether Pollack's predictions are ultimately borne out, only time will tell.
