Bush AG says Trump 'should serve time' in prison if convicted

Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says that, if convicted, former President Donald Trump "should serve time" in prison. 

Gonzales, formerly a member of the George W. Bush administration, made the remark during a recent appearance on MSNBC's Inside with Jen Psaki, which, of course, is hosted by the Biden Administration's former White House Press Secretary - Jen Psaki.

There, Gonzales said, "If in fact he’s convicted of the crimes charged by Jack Smith and the Department of Justice . . . yeah, I think he should serve time, quite frankly."

"There are people that on Jan. 6, went to the Capitol — maybe not at the clear direction of [former] President Trump — but certainly, he did nothing to stop what happened that day. They're serving time," Gonzales added.

Gonzales, here, was specifically talking about the criminal indictment that Jack Smith - the special counsel selected by the Biden administration to prosecute Trump - has brought against Trump in relation to the events of Jan. 6, 2021. This is one of four indictments that Trump is now facing.

In the Jan. 6 case, Smith has accused Trump of conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights. A conviction could result in a multiple-decade prison sentence.

Trump has already been arraigned, and he has pled not guilty.

Trump maintains that Smith, here, is simply trying to stop his 2024 presidential campaign, in light of the fact that Trump is President Joe Biden's top 2024 challenger.

The bad news here is that it is almost a certainty that, in this case, Trump will be convicted.

This is for two reasons: first, the case is taking place in Washington, D.C., which is known to have a massive pro-Democrat, anti-Trump bias; second, the case is taking place before Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is also known to have a massive pro-Democrat, anti-Trump bias.

The good news, here - at least according to legal experts - is that Trump is unlikely to be put in prison. If convicted, the experts say that the conviction will almost certainly be overturned on appeal because Trump did nothing wrong.

In the meantime, though, the conviction would likely have a massive impact on Trump's 2024 chances - which appears to be what Smith and the Democrats are hoping for.

Why would Gonzales not point these sorts of things out during his MSNBC appearance? Why, instead, would he insist that Trump ought to be placed in jail, if convicted?

The only explanation that would seem to make any sense is that Gonzales - a Bush Republican - wants to see Trump lose the 2024 election and be imprisoned, and Gonzales wants to play his part to help bring these things about.
