GOP Rep. Predicts Trump Indictment Will 'Blow Over'–And Even Newsmax Host Wasn't Having It

GOP Rep. Predicts Trump Indictment Will 'Blow Over'–And Even Newsmax Host Wasn't Having It

Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney predicted Donald Trump's indictment would 'blow over' because he just wouldn't 'appear' in court.

New York Representative Claudia Tenney apparently thinks that any potential legal actions against former President Trump will just "blow over" without Trump suffering any consequences.

All of this speculation about Trump's legal future stems from his insistence that he would be arrested today in a post on Truth Social on Saturday.


At 7:26 Saturday morning, Trump posted his prediction that he would be arrested the following Tuesday, and called for his supporters to "PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!":

"THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!"

Just 2 hours after his post, a Trump spokesperson issued a statement clarifying that Trump wasn't making his assertions based on any actual knowledge of an impending arrest or the timing of it.

"President Trump is rightfully highlighting his innocence and the weaponization of our injustice system."

Tenney chimed in on the situation and claimed that the whole situation would just "blow over" because Trump wouldn't appear in court if indicted.

She told Newsmax:

"It’s really the worst of our system on display here and it’s unfortunate, but I think this is all going to blow over because I don’t see any way that they’re actually going to get Donald Trump to appear in a court for sentencing, or I mean for indictment, or for any type of charge."

Tenney seemed to be implying that one can be indicted on criminal charges and then simply refuse to show up and everything just magically "blows over," but even one of the Newsmax anchors seemed to question her reasoning.

The anchor responded to Tenney's statement with:

"Well, his attorneys said that they will participate if things were to progress to that point."

Twitter was also quick to point out that isn't how any of this works.






While Tenney seems supremely confident Trump could just ignore the problem if he is indicted and refuse to appear in court, that's really not a great option.

And it almost certainly wouldn't lead to the situation just "blowing over."

Failure to show up to court in New York can result in a judge issuing a bench warrant for the arrest of the person who failed to appear. It is quite surprising that a Representative who is also an attorney doesn't seem to know that.
