Asa Hutchinson, a failing GOP presidential candidate, was booed at a Republican summit when he suggested that there is a “significant likelihood” that former President Trump will be found guilty of a felony within the next year.
Hutchinson argued that this outcome may make it harder for Republicans in down-ticket races if Trump wins the 2024 nomination.
“As someone who’s been in the courtroom for 25 years as a federal prosecutor, and also in defending some of the most serious federal criminal cases, I can say that there is a significant likelihood that Donald Trump will be found guilty by a jury on a felony offense,” Hutchinson said.

“That may or may not happen before you vote in March,” he stated as the booing grew louder.
“And it might not make any difference to you, but it will make a difference for our chances to attract independent voters in November,” Hutchinson pressed. “It will make a difference for those down-ticket races for Congress and Senate.”
“Go home!” one audience member yelled.
Trump is facing multiple felony counts, including accusations of falsifying records and election subversion.
Hutchinson’s comments were met with boos from the crowd, highlighting the divisions within the Republican party.
Recent polls show Trump leading in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
“We cannot win as a country without integrity in the White House,” Hutchinson later said. “And while some will ignore that destructive behavior of the former president, I assure you we ignore it at our own peril. The next generation will not look favorably back on this time.”
