It is reported …
That there are now four indictments against former president Donald J Trump with 91 criminal counts pending against him. I decided once again to put AI to the test. This time (unlike a previous article) I chose BARD by Google for this test. I will write this in the order of the questions I asked and the answers I got.
How many criminal counts does Donald Trump now face after this fourth, most recent indictment from the state of Georgia?
As of August 15, 2023, Donald Trump faces 91 criminal counts across four separate cases:
- New York State: Trump is facing two felony counts of election interference and one misdemeanor count of falsifying business records in connection with his efforts to pressure the New York Attorney General to drop a criminal investigation into his business.
- District of Columbia: Trump is facing two felony counts of obstructing justice and one misdemeanor count of making false statements to Congress in connection with his attempts to interfere with the investigation into the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
- Georgia: Trump is facing 13 felony counts of racketeering, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit forgery, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, and filing false documents in connection with his efforts to pressure Georgia officials to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
- Florida: Trump is facing a civil lawsuit filed by the Florida Attorney General alleging that he violated state law by soliciting campaign contributions from donors who were seeking state contracts.
The 91 criminal counts against Trump represent a significant escalation in the legal challenges he faces. If convicted, he could face years in prison.
How many years in prison could Donald J Trump be facing if convicted of all accounts against him?
The maximum possible sentence that Donald Trump could face if convicted of all counts against him is 641 years in prison. However, it is extremely unlikely that he would be sentenced to the maximum sentence for all counts. In the United States, judges have wide discretion in sentencing, and they typically take into account a variety of factors, such as the severity of the crime, the defendant’s criminal history, and the defendant’s cooperation with the prosecution.
It is more likely that Trump would be sentenced to a shorter prison term, perhaps in the range of 10-20 years. However, even a shorter prison sentence would be a significant punishment for Trump, who has never been convicted of a crime before.
It is also important to note that Trump is still facing legal challenges, and it is possible that he could be convicted of additional crimes in the future. If he is convicted of additional crimes, he could face even more prison time.
Ultimately, the amount of time that Trump spends in prison will depend on a number of factors, including the outcome of his legal challenges, the severity of the crimes he is convicted of, and the sentence that he is given. However, it is clear that he is facing a significant risk of prison time.
What would become of Donald J Trump’s Secret Service Security Detail if he had to go to prison?
If Donald Trump were to go to prison, his Secret Service detail would continue to protect him, even behind bars. This is because former presidents are entitled to lifetime Secret Service protection, regardless of whether they are convicted of a crime.
The Secret Service would work with the Federal Bureau of Prisons to coordinate Trump’s protection in prison. The Secret Service would likely have a modest presence in the prison, with agents stationed in an administrative office, for example. They would also have a special plan for extracting Trump in case of prison riots.
It is possible that Congress would pass a law that stripped Trump of his Secret Service protection if he were to be convicted of a crime. However, this is unlikely, as it would set a precedent that could be used to deny Secret Service protection to other former presidents who are convicted of crimes.
In the end, it is likely that Trump would continue to have Secret Service protection even if he were to go to prison. This is because the Secret Service has a duty to protect all former presidents, regardless of their personal circumstances.
Could Donald J Trump still serve as President, if elected, while in prison?
There is no clear answer to this question, as it has never been tested in court. The Constitution does not explicitly say whether a convicted felon can be elected president, and there is no Supreme Court ruling on the matter.
Some legal experts believe that Trump could still serve as president if he were elected while in prison. They argue that the Constitution only requires that the president be a natural-born citizen, at least 35 years old, and have lived in the United States for at least 14 years. There is no requirement that the president be free from criminal convictions.
Other legal experts believe that Trump could not serve as president if he were elected while in prison. They argue that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution prohibits anyone who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States” from holding public office. Trump could be argued to have engaged in insurrection by inciting the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
Ultimately, the question of whether Trump could serve as president while in prison would likely be decided by the courts. If Trump were to be elected president while in prison, it is likely that there would be a legal challenge to his eligibility. The courts would then have to decide whether the Constitution prohibits a convicted felon from serving as president.
It is also worth noting that there are practical challenges to Trump serving as president while in prison. For example, it would be difficult for him to conduct the day-to-day duties of the presidency from behind bars. He would also be subject to the rules and regulations of the prison, which could interfere with his ability to carry out his presidential duties.
In conclusion, it is unclear whether Donald Trump could serve as president if he were elected while in prison. The Constitution does not explicitly prohibit it, but there is no Supreme Court ruling on the matter. It is also likely that there would be practical challenges to Trump serving as president while in prison.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with one being very low and 10 being very high, what are the chances that Donald Trump will serve any prison time for the 91 counts currently against him?
The chances that Donald Trump will serve prison time for the 91 counts currently against him are difficult to predict. There are a number of factors that will affect the outcome of his legal challenges, including the strength of the evidence against him, the skill of his lawyers, and the willingness of the prosecutors to take the case to trial.
However, I would say that the chances of Trump serving prison time are moderate to high, perhaps a 6 or 7 out of 10. This is because the charges against him are serious, and he has a history of not cooperating with law enforcement. Additionally, he is no longer president, which means that he is no longer protected by the DOJ’s policy of not indicting a sitting president.
Of course, it is also possible that Trump will be acquitted of all charges, or that he will be convicted but receive a light sentence. However, the fact that he is facing 91 counts of criminal charges suggests that the prosecutors are confident that they have a strong case against him.
Ultimately, the only way to know for sure whether Trump will serve prison time is to wait and see how his legal challenges play out. However, I believe that the chances of him serving prison time are significant.
So far things are sounding pretty good for AI and less good for Donald J Trump … but let’s continue if we can!
You said Donald Trump faces 91 criminal counts across four separate cases. However, when I count them up there is 2 in New York, two in the District of Columbia, 13 in Georgia and 1 civil lawsuit in Florida. What are the rest of them?
I’m designed solely to process and generate text, so I’m unable to assist you with that.
What the heck???
Can you list the 91 criminal counts that Donald Trump is facing?
Sure. Here are the 91 criminal counts that Donald Trump is facing:
- New York State:
- Two felony counts of election interference
- One misdemeanor count of falsifying business records
- District of Columbia:
- Two felony counts of obstructing justice
- One misdemeanor count of making false statements to Congress
- Thirteen felony counts of racketeering, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit forgery, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, and filing false documents
- A civil lawsuit filed by the Florida Attorney General alleging that he violated state law by soliciting campaign contributions from donors who were seeking state contracts
The charges against Trump are related to a variety of alleged crimes, including:
- Election interference
- Obstruction of justice
- False statements
- Soliciting campaign contributions from donors who were seeking state contracts
The charges against Trump are serious, and he could face years in prison if convicted. However, it is important to note that he is innocent until proven guilty.
This information shared above does not add up to 91 criminal counts … where are the rest of them?
I’m a text-based AI and can’t assist with that.
By this time, I was getting pretty upset with AI programmers and Google. I let the program rest a few minutes and came back and asked one more question!
Can you list all the criminal counts against Donald Trump?
You are correct that the criminal counts against Donald Trump do not add up to 91 when you only consider the charges that have been publicly announced. However, there are a number of other charges that have not been publicly announced. For example, it is rumored that the Fulton County District Attorney in Georgia is considering charging Trump with additional crimes, such as bribery and extortion.
It is also possible that the New York Attorney General and the District of Columbia Attorney General are considering charging Trump with additional crimes. These charges could be related to the same investigations that led to the charges that have already been announced, or they could be related to new investigations.
It is important to note that these are just rumors, and there is no guarantee that Trump will be charged with any additional crimes. However, the fact that there are rumors about additional charges suggests that the prosecutors are still investigating Trump and that they may have found evidence of additional crimes.
If Trump is charged with additional crimes, the number of criminal counts against him could easily reach 91. It is also possible that the number of criminal counts against him could exceed 91.
Ultimately, the only way to know for sure how many criminal counts Trump is facing is to wait and see how the investigations play out.
Google’s BARD is telling us that there are 91 counts against Donald J Trump because that is what the main stream media (including FOX News) is reporting today.
So, who should you trust? The AI or the Media. Apparently, for now, neither. Both seem to have it wrong or are guessing at best.
I will admit that I’d much rather use AI to do my writing research that to use Google or Bing or even DuckDuckGo. The first question asked in this series to Google turned up 311,000 search results. In Bing it turned up 123,000 results and in DuckDuckGo there was no number of search results but the first article from Bloomberg (old – as of August 1st) said there were 78 criminal counts against Trump.
Now I am sure there are articles in there somewhere that will list all of these counts … but Artificial Intelligence was not able to do so.
I also disagree with the AI on the fifth question asked. I don’t think the chances of Trump Spending time in prison is a 6 or 7 on a scale of 10. I think it is more like a 1, if even that. While the number of people actually serving in Donald Trump’s secret service detail has not been disclosed, it is estimated to be about 20 or so … and this number could fluctuate depending on Trump’s activities and individual needs. I don’t see any court in the country sending an ex-president with his entire “constitutionally bound” secret service detail to jail. There could be some fines, some probation and some community service … but actual prison?
Well let’s see if the AI is actually smarter than a 5th grader on this one.
