Many believe Trump could run and win, and pardon himself from prison

Former President Donald Trump not only faces multiple indictments, with possibly more to come, but with those charges exists the possibility of actual prison time. 

According to Breitbart, in an interview with Breitbart News Daily host Mike Slater, Breitbart's Joel Pollak floated the insane, but very possible scenario of Trump pardoning himself from a prison cell after hypothetically winning the election, assuming he was actually sentenced to prison.

Combined, if Trump was convicted and hit with all maximum sentences for the dozens of charges he faces, he would be sentenced to over 600 years in prison.

Pollak was asked about the left's "fever dream" of seeing Trump behind bars, even though many believe he would still run a successful, if not astonishingly bizarre, election campaign.

This day and age, it seems like anything's possible, especially if the other side plays even dirtier than they are now. Pollak presented the bizarre hypothetical situation.

"There’s a distinct possibility that … you could see a scene where Trump is in jail, or in prison, wins the election, the Chief Justice goes to the prison, administers the oath of office, Trump pardons himself, and leaves," he said.

Most of the mainstream media has all but completely ignored the Biden family's ongoing scandal and have instead focused on Trump, and specifically the possibility of the former president being sentenced to time behind bars.

Fox News Channel's Jesse Watters has also predicted that if Trump is sentenced to prison, he'll win the election and pardon himself on Day One.

In Special Counsel Jack Smith's most recent indictment of the former president, Trump was charged over his alleged role in challenging the 2020 election results.

Pollak weighed in on the charges:

He pointed out that the indictment depends on “mind-reading,” because it lacks evidence that Trump subjectively believed he was lying about the election being stolen. He also noted that one of the four charges, “conspiracy against rights,” carries with it a potential death penalty.

Pollak also pointed out that if suddenly making false claims about an election is a federal crime, than people like Hillary Clinton should also be charged.

It was noted that Trump's charges could also fall within Double Jeopardy laws:

Pollak also argued further that the indictment might be unconstitutional under the Double Jeopardy Clause, because Trump had already been tried for similar crimes during his second impeachment trial in the Senate in early 2021, and he was acquitted.
