One thing Donald Trump seemed to really appreciate about the presidency was his (proclaimed) immunity from prosecution. As the net tightens around his family and business, it seems he might be desperate to regain that protection, and another chance to save himself financially.
Will Trump ever be prosecuted for his role in the January 6th attack on the U.S. Government? Experts differ on whether charges would stick, and whether they’re absolutely necessary to prevent the next attack, or too risky to try.
Still, things don’t seem to be going well for the ex-president. Several of his top employees are facing charges — the Trump Organiaztion and CFO Allen Weisselberg was indicted, his security chief, Matthew Calamari Jr., has been subpoenaed to testify before a Grand Jury, and tenants are fleeing his Trump Tower property.
Now, his advisor, Jason Miller, says that Trump will run for President again in 2024, and that while it’s not official, he says he can state this with “99 to 100 percent” certainty.
Mediaite reports that Miller said he’d just talked to Trump recently, and described his state of mind about a campaign:
“I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent. I think he is definitely running in 2024…He has not said the magical words to me, but if you talk to him for a few minutes it’s pretty clear that he’s running.”
Still, it all has the air of the “reinstatement” claims the former president’s proxies were making on his behalf, insisting that he planned to be back in the White House before the end of summer, or the ridiculous notions his supporters floated about making him Speaker of the House, then impeaching President Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris — a lot of oversized boasts with no facts or actions to back them up.
