Dan Bongino predicts Trump’s possible arrest will motivate the base and could make him a ‘martyr’
Appearing on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Saturday morning, Fox News host Dan Bongino compared the United States to a police state ahead of Donald Trump’s possible arrest next week.
The former president spoke to Truth Social on Saturday morning to confirm reports from sources of his possible arrest next Tuesday.
Trump responded by calling the investigation “CORRUPTED” and “HIGHLY POLITICAL.”
Reports suggest the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is preparing to issue an indictment in the ongoing criminal investigation into alleged cash payments Trump allegedly made to Stormy Daniels as a presidential candidate in 2016 .

Bongino compared news of Trump’s possible arrest to ‘Third World BS’
“It’s the kind of story you’re used to reading about North Korea, but it’s here in the United States right now. And the fact that people in the media and liberals will be celebrating you show what I’ve always said and axiomatic truth of the left.”
Bongino shared what he thinks will happen if the former president is arrested.
“It’s like your whole life is on a jury lottery,” he said.
“It’s probably over by now. He’ll probably be convicted by a bunch of crazies on a jury and the best hope he has is an appeals process where all he can hope for is that the judge appeal, too, is not a lunatic like the people in the lunatic jury pool who are likely to convict him.”

Bongino predicted that an arrest would not stop Donald Trump’s base, but could make him a martyr.
“You may have just martyred this guy and given him a ten point lead in his polls,” he said.
Bongino urged people to protest “peacefully”, warning that the government was looking for an excuse to put people in jail.
Former President Trump called for protests Saturday morning on Truth Social amid his impending indictment.

“Don’t give them ammunition. Show up. Protesters against you must protest, but please do it peacefully,” Bongino said.
