Former Trump lawyer Joe Tacopina suggests Trump will be convicted

One of former President Donald Trump's lawyers predicted that a conviction is "absolutely possible." 

According to The Hill, Joe Tacopina, who recently exited Trump's legal team in a somewhat shocking and sudden manner, told MSNBC host Al Sharpton that he believes a conviction is on the horizon.

Sharpton, like most other liberal media hacks, is especially excited about the idea of Trump being convicted. He pressed Tacopina on the idea.

"Oh, is it possible? Absolutely," Tacopina.

Tacopina painted Special Counsel Jack Smith as a prosecutor who doesn't mess around, and warned that his

"You have a jury of 12 who’s going to ultimately decide this," Tacopina added. "Jack Smith is a federal prosecutor who I knew from his days in Brooklyn. … They’re serious prosecutors, and these are federal cases and you have a jury here."

Sharpton further pressed Tacopina on whether or not he believes the cases against Trump are politically motivated or good, solid cases.

"Look, do I think there’s a political bent to some of this, some of the way this was gone about? Yes, I do," Tacopina responded. "Do I think these cases are invalid cases? Look, the grand jury voted to indict, and he’s going to have to face a jury in Washington, D.C."

The Hill noted:

The former president faces 91 felony counts across four federal and state indictments. This includes 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in New York City in connection with alleged hush payments to cover up an alleged affair.

The former Trump lawyer admitted that Trump will have a tough time in any of the three cities where trials could take place, which include New York City, Washington and Atlanta.

"So that’s going to be something to really have to grapple with there," Tacopina said. "And you can’t say, ‘There’s no way he’ll get convicted.'"

For his part, Trump has declared his innocence in every indictment he faces, and continues to insist that they're all politically motivated.

He is currently awaiting the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on his presidential immunity defense.
