Donald Trump's post sharing details of his arrest could see him DENIED BAIL

A former federal prosecutor said Saturday that former President Donald Trump’s post on Truth Social sharing details of his arrest could affect his chances of getting bail and his conditions for release. 

Trump claimed on his Truth Social account that the Manhattan DA’s office will arrest him on Tuesday –  and branded the probe ‘corrupt and highly political’, calling the alleged hush money payment an ‘old and fully debunked fairy-tale.’ 

He speculated that a judge could interpret Trump’s post as an attempt to incite a crowd to riot – raising the specter of a judge ordering Trump held behind bars to stop him posting further inflammatory communications ahead of any trial.  

‘I would slap a government exhibits sticker on this post and I would introduce it as his criminal trial,’ Kirschner explained.

‘He has now just given the judge that will preside over his arraignment hearing food for thought about what kind of conditions should be set for the release of this dangerous man pending trial,’ he added.

Multiple times, Kirschner compared the comments to Trump’s posts ahead of January 6 and to when he told the Proud Boys to ‘stand back and stand by’ at a presidential debate. 

The former president would have to be charged with a felony for him to spend any time behind bars, and there’s slim chance he’ll end up held in custody if the Manhattan DA ends up pursing a less serious misdemeanor charge. 

Trump has in the past tried to get out in front of stories, as he did when the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago.
