An attorney for former President Donald Trump made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Friday evening to update viewers on his client’s case following an indictment by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
Joe Tacopina provided Hannity, a close ally of Trump’s, with information about what to expect moving forward and what’s taken place thus far.
“On Tuesday the president will be arraigned. We expect a mug shot. We expect the president will have his fingerprints. We expect what? Is he going to be perp walked? Is he going to be in handcuffs? Are they going to try and say he can’t have bail?” the host said.
“I don’t think anything dramatic like that is going to happen. Even if they tried to that would further solidify the notion he is being so selectively targeted and treated differently than anyone in the world. You can go smack a police officer in Times Square right now, knock him out, you’ll be out on bail. You’ll get bail, no problem. Are they going to ask bail on a misdemeanor case?” Tacopina said.
“Yeah, but they don’t have the last name Trump, Joe,” Hannity responded.
“Of course not. Here’s the thing. We don’t really know what’s going to happen Tuesday because, logistically, this has never happened. We have the Secret Service involved in an arraignment. When have you seen that before? Never,” the attorney said.
“You have not worked out all those details yet as of this point?” Hannity inquired.
Regarding the possibility of a mugshot, Hannity said, “My gut instinct tells me that my friend, my colleague, Pete Hegseth, who was on last night, he’s going to be proven correct. That photograph will end up on more T-shirts and more hats that say MAGA and Trump 2024.”
Bragg has made history “in the worst possible way” with his indictment of President Trump.
Constitutional expert Jonathan Turley has written in a column that Bragg now has assured that Trump “will not be the last” president indicted.
And he’s charted a brand new “race to the bottom in political prosecutions.”
