Top Law Professor Throws Cold Water on Idea Trump’s Latest Indictment Will Stop Re-Election

Former President Donald Trump’s latest four-count indictment relating to the 2020 election’s aftermath will not come close to fulfilling Democrats’ dreams of prohibiting the Republican front-runner from attaining high office again, a top law professor told Fox News.

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley’s analysis was essentially seconded by another legal expert, former New York federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy, who noted he had himself successfully prosecuted a “seditious conspiracy” case and said the Trump investigation gets nowhere close to that threshold.

Fox News correspondent David Spunt reported on “The Five” that Trump had been indicted on four counts: conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of an attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.

Turley told “The Five” that special counsel Jack Smith might be “yielding to his weakness” with the indictment.

“[Smith] may be stretching the law a bit, so that’s why we’re going to be looking at things like witness tampering to see how much new evidence he has,” Turley said. “You’ll notice that not being discussed in all of this is a conspiracy for incitement [or] seditious conspiracy.” (Read more from “Top Law Professor Throws Cold Water on Idea Trump’s Latest Indictment Will Stop Re-Election” HERE)
