Some say Trump could face charges after charity gun auction at Mar-a-Lago

Former President Donald Trump currently faces over 90 charges stemming from four indictments, and a New York-based civil trial that includes his Trump Organization business. 

But according to the Washington Examiner, the 45th president could face yet another charge, this time related to the recent auctioning off of a "priceless" firearm at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Some believe that the auctioning of the firearm, a "one of a kind Trump Glock from the 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump," at his estate could count as a violation of the conditions of his federal indictment.

Pictures and video of the auctioning ceremony were obtained by Meidas Touch News. 

Bidding for the firearm reportedly began at $10,000, though it's unclear how much the final selling price was.

It was also noted that the purchaser of the firearm could also face serious legal consequences, given that Trump's indictment conditions are public, and would likely be a violation of law to purchase a firearm from his estate.

The Examiner noted:

Both Trump and the purchaser could face prison time for the auctioning, according to federal gun prohibitions laid out in the Gun Control Act enforced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Some reports indicate that Trump was present during the auctioning ceremony, even including reported pictures of him there. The Examiner said the pictures couldn't be verified at the current time.

Meidas Touch News noted:

Trump, who is currently under federal indictment, is barred by federal law from shipping, transporting, or receiving firearms or ammunition. It is also a crime for anyone to sell or dispose of firearms to another person, like Trump who is prohibited from shipping, transporting, or receiving them.

While it would be a difficult case for prosecutors, Trump's critics pounced on the idea of Trump facing additional legal troubles as a result of the auction.

Many of his critics are already calling for his "arrest" on social media, while others believe it's a non-issue.

Only time will tell if anything comes of it.
