Donald Trump’s life is over as he knows it. His financial house of cards is about to be destroyed by the fact that three banks have dumped him this week and prosecutors are going to hit him with asset forfeitures. Trump was already on track to go to prison in New York State, and now he’s facing the prospect of federal charges for his incitement of the Capitol attack.
With Trump’s life in ruins and getting even worse by the hour, what will he do once he’s booted from office next week? Last week’s talk of Trump traveling to Scotland on his final day in office – which was scuttled when Scotland said he wouldn’t be allowed into the country – brought into focus the question of whether he’s going to attempt to flee.
Now the conservative Washington Times is quoting multiple experts who believe that Donald Trump is indeed a “flight risk” if he gets hit with criminal charges, citing the fact that Trump has the cash to do it and the international properties to hide out at.
After this past week we’re not sure Trump is going to have much cash left on hand to do anything with. But this is notable because before too much longer, Trump will be criminally indicted in New York State. He’ll try to convince the judge to let him out on bail, or at least give him house arrest at Mar-a-Lago. But if prosecutors can find enough experts to testify that Trump is a serious international flight risk, the judge could end up putting him in jail while awaiting trial. We’ll see.
