Radio host Dan Bongino said on Wednesday that former President Donald Trump should refuse to post bond when he surrenders to Fulton County, Georgia, authorities. Instead, he said that Trump should force District Attorney Fani Willis' hand and make her put him in jail.
Bongino, who previously served in the NYPD and the United States Secret Service, made the comments during his show and argued that "crazy times"
called for "different, crazy, bold approaches."
"Folks, I don't think the Trump team should post the bond. I don't,"
he began. "This may sound like a crazy idea, but folks, we're living in crazy times. And crazy times require different, crazy, bold approaches."
"Fani Willis wants to be a smarta** tyrant, little socialist communist like she is down in Fulton County, Georgia? Don't post. Don't post the bond,"
Bongino continued. "You're gonna jail him? Let's elect our first political prisoner. Go ahead. Go to jail. Let the Secret Service shut the entire jail down, and we'll see how long you're willing to keep this charade going."
"Let them put him in jail for a bit - folks, I know it sounds crazy,"
he added, saying that the Secret Service had the authority under federal law to declare anything a protected area - even a jail - and that if the former president were to spend any time there, they would have to do that.
"You may think it's a crazy idea,"
he said again, adding, "I don't think so. Folks, you've seen people around the world take a stand like this. And it's easy for me to say, I get it, I wouldn't be the one in a prison cell - but you want to send a message? Let's see, let's see what happens."
Bongino went on to suggest that if Trump was put in jail, people should protest outside the jail every day. "Make them put you in jail and make them show America their a**es and show America who they really are. And let's see how long this lasts."
Bongino concluded by saying that "the eff around and find out time has long since passed."
