School of Law professor Jonathan Adler explains possible scenario of former President Donald Trump’s presidency run while indicted

Donald Trump indicted: Yes, Trump could run for president from prison if he’s convicted

Washington ExaminerJonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, explained the possible scenario of former President Donald Trump being elected and taking office before a verdict is reached in his trial, including how he could dismiss charges against himself. “We usually expect criminal proceedings, especially federal criminal proceedings, to be somewhat slow, but I would not assume necessarily that any of these trials would extend the election,” Adler said.
