Capitol riot tops list of most serious charges against Trump
April 19, 2023
Donald Trump has already been indicted for business fraud in New York. But that's not the only open case against the former US president, who's running again in 2024.
So, where is he in most legal jeopardy? On GZERO World, Ian Bremmer asks Preet Bharara, former US attorney for the Southern District of New York, to rank the severity of the other potential charges Trump faces.
According to Bharara, “the most severe charge is related to the Jan. 6 riot, followed by the issue surrounding the Georgia election, and then the issue of mishandling classified documents.”
What's more, Bharara says that the conduct surrounding Jan. 6 is particularly severe as it threatened the peaceful transfer of power and led to several deaths.
