"Because You'd Be In Jail"

During one of Donald Trump's debates with Hillary Clinton, he quipped that if he were in charge, she'd be in jail. 

Now it looks like the one who is about to get arrested may be Donald Trump. Fox News and other sources are reporting that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is preparing to have Trump arrested next week on charges related to his former lawyer Michael Cohen's payment to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels. 

RIP Rule of Law

As Daryl Cooper (@martyrmade) suggests below, this would be banana republic-level perversion of the rule of law. 

One wonders how the markets would react to Trump being arrested on top of the banking crisis (which the First Republic deposit infusion failed to quell) and everything else. 

Saturday Morning Update

Trump on his possibly impending indictment: 

Relevant context with respect to the Trump prosecution: Trump has been pulling away from DeSantis in the polls. 

Also, Elon Musk has noticed the hands-off treatment of the Biden family in contrast.

Later Update

Trump responds, says he's getting arrested on Tuesday. 

Senator J.D. Vance Responds:

Imagine if this happens. 

I suppose our bearish bets on a few regional banks would do well in that nightmare scenario.
