Trump May Face 25 Years in Prison, Be Blocked From Future Office: Kirschner

Glenn Kirschner predicted that former President Donald Trump might get up to 25 years in prison for committing offenses related to last year's Capitol riot.

When asked during an interview on MSNBC's The ReidOut on Friday about whether or not referrals have value, Kirshner said they did. 

The select committee is expected on Monday to consider a report reflecting possible criminal charges against Trump, two people familiar with the matter told Politico. 

"It is great that they're talking about obstructing official proceedings, that's a 20-year offense. It's great that they are talking about conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States, that's a 5-year offense," Kirschner said Friday. 

The select committee didn't mention who will be on the referral list and for what offenses. Meanwhile, the decision over criminal referrals was not confirmed in the past because the panel was divided on whether or not to pursue such a move against Trump. 

Though a referral doesn't necessarily carry legal weight, it could still be threatening to the former president, according to experts. 

Though Trump could face prison time if convicted for the alleged offenses related to the Capitol riot, Kirshner said that being prosecuted for insurrection is important.
