Skip to comments.Donald Trump's post claiming he'll be arrested Tuesday could see him DENIED BAIL over fears he'll try and incite Jan 6. riot at arraignment hearing, former federal prosecutor says

A former federal prosecutor said Saturday that former President Donald Trump's post on Truth Social sharing details of his arrest could affect his chances of getting bail and his conditions for release.
Trump claimed on his Truth Social account that the Manhattan DA's office will arrest him on Tuesday - and branded the probe 'corrupt and highly political', calling the alleged hush money payment an 'old and fully debunked fairy-tale.'
Glenn Kirschner, an MSNBC legal analyst, went on the network Saturday and compared the all-caps rant to his posts leading up to the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021 and said it could affect the terms of his release.
He speculated that a judge could interpret Trump's post as an attempt to incite a crowd to riot - raising the specter of a judge ordering Trump held behind bars to stop him posting further inflammatory communications ahead of any trial.
'I would slap a government exhibits sticker on this post and I would introduce it as his criminal trial,' Kirschner explained.
'He has now just given the judge that will preside over his arraignment hearing food for thought about what kind of conditions should be set for the release of this dangerous man pending trial,' he added.

Thank you very much and God bless you.
It’s inspiring to see Lefties boosting the Presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.
If they arrest him that’s political imprisonment and worthy of incitement itself.
Wow. This could start cw2. Hope not!
Dangerous man??? The spelled Biden wrong.
The entire USA will come to a halt. I would expect a total shutdown of commerce when workers refuse and walk out.
Deny bail... on what is expected to be a misdemeanor charge??? (or, if other rumors are correct, a trumped-up felony charge that has no legal basis since the crime itself is only defined as a misdemeanor)?
You have a LOT more faith in a population that has demonstrated very little backbone and a whole lot of gullibility....
Or they hate Trump. They think he's Hitler. So they want to put him in prison no matter what. I can see that.
In case you haven't noticed, the FASCIST MARXIST CHILD-GROOMING CONSTITUTION-HATING AMERICA-HATING PEOPLE IN CONTROL have ALREADY STARTED IT.
If they really hated Trump and wanted to destroy him they would endorse him.
But luckily they are not that smart.
Call it Devine intervention or simply had enough—I believe this may be the straw that gets folks in gear.
Wonder who’s behind all this? It’s not Garland or Biden for sure. Wonder who?
They are going all in on this.
I know my EV Volvo driving BIL and his wife are 100% in favor of this. I no longer talk to either one of them.
In a city and state that has a No Cash Bail law, the President won’t get bail for a misdemeanor? Hmmmm....
Concurrent with this is the Derp State ARRESTING thousands more January 6th rally-goers.
TOTAL GESTAPO TACTICS and WAR against American patriots.
I know some crazy liberals that have been looking forward to him getting arrested and even assassinated. Totally unhinged lunatics. And yes they all cashed those stimulus checks brought to them by Trump.
Saw shooting war coming for some time-—
NEVER thought the TRIGGER would be BANK FAILURES.
Sprinkle that with charges against TRUMP-—
No telling what could happen.
Would be nice to see a NATIONWIDE SIT DOWN STRIKE
I wonder how this farce would play out. The Manhattan DA issues an arrest warrant. Would Trump then voluntarily surrender? I hope not.
Then New York sends a couple of detectives to Florida to arrest Trump. Now here’s where it could get interesting. DeSantis could step up, and order the Florida State Police to deny the New York detectives access to Trump’s home.
Would that work? I dunno. But it would be nice to see a little push-back for a change.
No worries. He's got some great sons and millions of patriotic Americans willing to do that on his behalf.
