What happens if trump takes an Alford plea? Agnew did....

(NOT a lawyer... not even!)
"In criminal law, an Alford plea is a type of guilty plea in which the defendant does not admit to committing the crime but agrees that the prosecution has enough evidence to obtain a conviction. This type of plea allows the defendant to plead guilty but maintain their innocence in the eyes of the law."

He could then say all the usual bullshit about "radical courts" and talk about being railroaded because the deck is stacked against him, without having all the shit come out in court.

I want that fucker incarcerated, but his lawyers/advisors/family might convince him it's the only way out. Otherwise, he'll be in court for the rest of his life.
