Is Donald Trump a Flight Risk? Charges Pending Post Presidency

Following his historic impeachment for the second time President Trump is now less than a week from leaving office as one of the most disgraced President’s in American History.

With likely criminal charges coming his way post-presidency is the soon to be former President a flight risk?

From the Washington Times:

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk.

Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden.

Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.

What happens to Trump post-presidency is the biggest question most political and legal pundits have. From the first day in office there has always been talk about criminality with Trump and from the beginning he has floated the idea of pardoning himself which most Constitutional scholars reject.

Where does he go after January 20th?
