Law’s Jonathan Adler discusses looming indictment of Donald Trump

Inside Trump’s efforts to turn his arrest into a martyrdom
The Daily BeastJonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, discussed the looming indictment of former President Donald Trump on charges of paying an adult film star hush money for an affair he had prior to the 2016 election. “We haven’t had something quite like this before, so it’s not like we have analogous things to draw on,” Adler said. “There’s no reason that he should expect or demand special treatment. That doesn’t mean he won’t. But if he’s being represented by smart lawyers, they’re going to tell him to respond the way anyone else would.”
