WASHINGTON, DC: James Comey has shared his thoughts on Donald Trump’s expected jail time after he was found guilty of all 34 charges on the hush money trial.

The Former FBI Director appeared on ‘Inside with Jen Psaki’ on Sunday, June 2. He was asked, “Do you agree … that it would be difficult or nearly impossible for the law enforcement institutions to put him in an actual jail?”

James Comey asserts Donald Trump would be kept ‘away’ from general population

Comey answered, as reported by The Hill, “No. They would just put him in a double wide, somewhere out near the fence, out in the grass. And he would eat there.”

He continued, “He’d shower there, he’d exercise there, he’d be away … from the general population. But it’s obviously doable.”

Psaki then questioned the 63-year-old lawyer, “Do you think he’s going to be wearing an ankle bracelet or be in jail after the sentencing?”

To which, he replied, “It seems unlikely. But I’ve never seen a defendant beg for it more by attacking the judge, attacking the jury, attacking the witnesses.”

“One of the key things in assessing what sentence is appropriate … a judge looks at, ‘So, are you sorry for what you did or are you respecting the system?’ This defendant is running the other way,” Comey added, slamming Trump for calling the trial “rigged, disgraceful.”

Donald Trump called hush money trial ‘unfair’

A day after being convicted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, in a speech at Trump Tower in New York, the former leader also reportedly claimed that the trial “was very unfair.”

Slamming Judge Juan Merchan, Trump added, “You saw what happened to some of the witnesses that were on our side. They were literally crucified by this man, who looks like an angel, but he’s really a devil."

Netizens call James Comey ‘moron’

Meanwhile, Comey’s comments were slammed online with a person on X tweeting, “James Comey should be the one behind bars.”



 

Another person wrote, “A lot of whining.”



 

 

One said, “I'm getting tired of Mr. #Comey. He, like other senior FBI officials, such as Robert #Mueller, for example, has a high share of blame in the process of capture of the #republican party by #trump & his lackeys. They were always afraid of him, who knows why #gop #maga #2024Election.”



 

“This is idiotic and posted for morons to believe. First this case will be overturned before the ink on the appeal dries, and secondly there is nothing that justifies 30 minutes in a cell,” another inidividual noted.



 

A user on Facebook commented, “Comey deserves to be tried for treason and it found guilty, the constitutionality proscribed punishment for said crime carried out swiftly and without mercy.”
