Donald Trump was arraigned on Thursday and pleaded not guilty to a whole bunch of crimes.
The four charges alone, should Trump be convicted, could result in decades in prison; the sentence for obstructing an official proceeding carries a penalty of up to 20 years behind bars.
The judge randomly assigned to the election case, Tanya Chutkan, has handed down some of the toughest sentences of all her colleagues when it comes to January 6 defendants.
Trump has naturally spent the days since he was indicted ranting on Truth Social about how he’s being unfairly persecuted and claiming “Election Interference.”
It’s unclear at this time when Trump will actually go to trial for attempting to overturn the election.
There’s also the strong possibility that he will soon be criminally charged by the Fulton County district attorney’s office for trying to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia.
On Tuesday, Fulton County sheriff Pat Labat said that should Trump be indicted, his arraignment will include one aspect that the three previous ones have not: a mug shot. »
