Trump Sees His Future As Former French President Sarkozy Convicted On Corruption Charges

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy was condemned of corruption and influence-peddling and provided a confinement sentence of one year.

The AP reported:

A Paris court on Monday discovered French previous President Nicolas Sarkozy guilty of corruption and influence-peddling and sentenced him to one year in jail and a two-year suspended sentence.

The 66-year-old political leader, who was president from 2007 to 2012, was founded guilty for having actually attempted to unlawfully acquire info from a senior magistrate in 2014 about a legal action in which he was included.

It is the very first time in modern-day history that a previous French president has actually been founded guilty of corruption.

The principle of present and previous high-ranking leaders being founded guilty by courts for criminal activity is something that hasn’t occurred in the United States, however it might occur to Donald Trump. Trump’s friend Netanyahu in Israel is on trial for corruption, while he is still trying to hang on to power.

Republicans offered Trump approximately an hour and a half to rattle on at CPAC on Sunday, and they are pretending that whatever is great and a Trump resurgence remains in the cards.

In the real life, criminal charges are bearing down on Trump like a freight train in the middle of the night, and Sarkozy’s conviction might supply a peek into the previous president’s future.
