A former federal prosecutor has stated that there is a “considerable likelihood” that former President Trump could be incarcerated until the end of his life if he loses the 2024 election.

The comment was made in reference to the number and extent of criminal prosecutions against him during a recent podcast appearance.

Harry Litman, a former U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania during the Clinton administration, made the remarks to former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on his podcast on Wednesday.

“If he doesn’t win, he has an appreciable chance of dying in prison. The whole timeline, the whole crisis point of November goes away. So, if he doesn’t win on [November] the fifth, those cases lie ready to bring.” Litman stated.

He stated that if Trump is elected, he is likely to utilize his authority over the Department of Justice to resolve the two criminal cases against him and to avoid prosecution in Georgia’s state 2020 election case by utilizing the office of the presidency.

In his New York hush money case, Trump has already been convicted of 34 felony business fraud counts.

He has appealed the conviction; however, he is scheduled to be sentenced in July.

The accusations against him could result in a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

Litman anticipated that Judge Juan Merchan would impose a sentence of a few months in prison for Trump’s business fraud offenses. However, he could potentially avoid serving the sentence for years, pending an appeal.

A federal prosecution in Washington, D.C., for election fraud and Trump’s actions in the aftermath of the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021, a federal case in Florida for mishandling classified documents and obstructing the government’s efforts to recover them, and a Georgia state case regarding efforts to overturn the 2020 election are the three additional cases that Trump is currently facing.

The Florida and Georgia cases have been postponed indefinitely, and the D.C. case has been suspended while the Supreme Court evaluates Trump’s request for immunity.
