The Roundtable: Trump and Sedition

A Republican former White House Ethics Lawyer believes the 45th president should be charged with sedition and insurrection.

What will the findings of the Mar-a-Lago raid mean for Trump's—and the country's— future? A panel of experts joined Roundtable to analyze the legal and political implications of the raid and the Justice Department's next steps. 

In this segment, Richard Painter, who served as Chief White House Ethics Lawyer during the George W. Bush administration, expressed his hope that Trump will face the most serious charges that any president can face.

"I think he probably will be prosecuted for something, and I think the charges should include sedition and insurrection," says Painter.  

"He should be disqualified from holding public again under 14th amendment, section three."
