Prison Pitch: President Trump VOWS to Remain in 2024 Race Even If Locked Up

If there’s anything that history has taught us, it’s that when the powerful begin to feel threatened, they resort to political prosecution.

In our great democracy, we’re starting to see a narrative that looks more like something out of a third-world dictatorship.

Former President Donald Trump, the very man who fearlessly took on the establishment, is now the subject of multiple legal challenges.

These are not charges borne out of substantial evidence but reek of a calculated political prosecution aimed at silencing a voice that has been unafraid to challenge the status quo.

We learned just this Friday that Trump faces an expanded indictment over alleged cover-up activities at Mar-a-Lago.

Apparently, the claim is that he ordered a security video to be wiped. But as the former President himself stated, he’s done nothing wrong.

We need to question the timing of these charges, folks.

The indictment coincides with the ongoing investigation by Special Counsel Jack Smith into the January 6th violence, and prosecutors in Georgia are expected to deliver an indictment in a 2020 election case soon.

Are these charges merely a tactic to prevent Trump from campaigning again?

If they lock him up, do they think his voice will be silenced?

If anything, this move could potentially make him a martyr, a symbol of resistance against an administration that seems to be more interested in political witch hunts than serving the American people.

More details below:

If they can target a former President in such a manner, imagine what they can do to the average citizen who dares to speak out.

Let’s ensure that our democracy remains a democracy and not turn into a system where those in power manipulate the law for their advantage.

Thank goodness for President Trump and his tireless fight against the odds.

If they turn him into a martyr by locking him up, it could very well be the wake-up call this country needs.

Hopefully it won’t come to that.

The Daily Mail confirms:

Former President Donald Trump on Friday raised the specter of campaigning from a jail cell as he insisted he had done nothing wrong a day after further evidence emerged of a cover-up at Mar-a-Lago where he is accused of keeping classified documents.

A new indictment broadens the charges against him and alleges that he ordered security video to be wiped.

Conservative radio host John Fredericks asked him whether his campaign would end if he was convicted and sentenced.

Either way the fresh indictment deepens his legal woes even if he and his supporters shrug off each new set of allegations against him.

This week they were bracing for charges to be handed down in an investigation by Special Counsel Jack Smith in a case related to the Jan. 6 violence.

Prosecutors in Georgia are also believed to be close to delivering an indictment in a 2020 election case.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: surely, an individual can’t run for president from behind bars, right?

Au contraire, dear reader.

In the maze of American jurisprudence, there’s not a single pebble-sized legal obstacle preventing a convicted felon from running for office, even from the cozy confines of a federal prison cell.

Why, just take a trip down memory lane and you’ll encounter Eugene V. Debs, the avowed socialist who took the term ‘working from home’ to a whole new level by campaigning for the presidency from his prison cell.

This lovely gentleman managed to bag nearly a million votes.

Debs, my friends, was like the early 20th-century Bernie Sanders but with a somewhat more, shall we say, restricted movement.

Now, picture this. If Debs, an unapologetic socialist, could nab 3% of the popular vote while in the slammer, just think what Trump, a man whose mere tweets create a media frenzy, could pull off.

Sure, Debs was no match for the mainstream candidates of his time, but we’re talking about Trump here.

A man who’s turned the improbable into his personal brand.

Politico confirms that, yes, President Trump can run for and win the presidency from behind bars:

The indictment and other ongoing criminal investigations of Donald Trump raise the real — if still remote — prospect that a leading contender for the 2024 presidential nomination could face prison time.

There are no legal obstacles to running for president as a convicted felon or even from behind bars. And if Trump finds himself in that predicament, he’ll be following in the footsteps of another rabble-rousing populist and frequent presidential candidate: the avowed socialist Eugene V. Debs, who received nearly a million votes while in prison a century ago.

Debs is far from the only person who has sought the highest office in the land while in prison, but he was the most successful. In 1920, he became the Socialist Party nominee while serving a 10-year federal sentence for urging people to resist the World War I draft.

He received 3 percent of the popular vote, a respectable tally for an incarcerated socialist, but nowhere near enough to force the nation to seriously grapple with an improbable constitutional question: What happens if an imprisoned candidate actually wins?

So, the million-dollar question here is: can Trump win the presidency from prison?

If we’ve learned anything from the last few years, it’s never to say never when it comes to Trump.

If he decided to run his 2024 campaign from a cell, who knows?

He might just add ‘first president to be inaugurated in an orange jumpsuit’ to his list of unprecedented feats.

So, folks, grab your popcorn.

This political circus led by the Biden regime is far from over.

And in the meantime, let’s give a round of applause to our unique democracy that makes these peculiar scenarios possible.

How’s that for some food for thought?
