Former federal prosecutor Andrew Weissmann has warned what sort of sentence could await Donald Trump if the previous president is convicted in his election interference case.

After former Proud Boys chief Enrique Tarrio was on Tuesday sentenced to 22 years in jail for his position within the violent Jan. 6, 2021 assault on the U.S. Capitol, Weismann instructed MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell that Trump, if convicted within the trial that U.S. District Decide Tanya Chutkan has scheduled to start out on Mar. 4, would probably face simply as a lot time behind bars.

“I feel that the strain that the judges will really feel, who’ve seen so many individuals go to jail, rightly, for his or her participation on Jan. sixth, the concept that Donald Trump wouldn’t do at the least as a lot time because the leaders of the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys, to me, appears unimaginable,” he defined. “As a result of that’s what the rule of regulation would require.”

“I feel that it is a actual signal of what’s to return if Donald Trump is convicted,” Weissmann added, noting Trump is “presumed harmless at this level.”
