Out of the 34 counts all it's going to take is him to be found guilty of one or two and that will prevent him from running for president.  Unfortunately, I think the reality of the matter is that it is doubtful that he will be found not guilty of all 34 charges.

Trump faces maximum sentence of 136 years in prison for 34-count indictment

Former President Trump pleaded not guilty in New York City on Tuesday to 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first-degree – charges that carry a maximum sentence of 136 years in prison, though the actual sentence will likely be significantly less than that if he is convicted on any or all counts.

Falsifying business records is typically a misdemeanor charge in New York, but rises to the level of a felony with a maximum four-year sentence when a defendant's "intent to defraud includes an intent to commit another crime or to aid or conceal the commission thereof."

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was asked by reporters at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon why the second concealed crime was not specified in the indictment.

"Let me say as an initial matter that the indictment doesn't specify it because the law does not so require. In my remarks, I mentioned a couple of laws which I will highlight again now," Bragg answered. "The first is New York state election law, which makes it a crime to conspire to promote a candidacy by unlawful means. I further indicated a number of unlawful means, including additional false statements, including statements that were planned to be made to tax authorities. I also noted the federal election law cap on contribution limits."...........

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
