Appearing on CNN, Ex-Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman claimed President Trump and Ivanka Trump could wind up in jail for tax evasion.
Erin Burnett asked “Do you think Trump could end up going to jail if he is not re-elected because of anything in here?”
“No question about it,” Nick Akerman replied “and his daughter could go to jail, too. Tax evasion is a five-year felony,” continued Akerman “It’s a pretty serious crime, and the more money that’s stolen, the longer you go to jail for.”
Ex-Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman says the NYT’s report on Trump’s taxes shows that both he and his daughter, Ivanka could face legal liabilities. “The only thing saving him at this point is the Department of Justice’s guideline that says you can’t indict a sitting president.” pic.twitter.com/4YI1qDhI5g
