Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed filmmaker Warren D. Robinson (image below).

Former president Donald Trump has been something of a ‘Teflon Don’(a moniker given to mob boss John Gotti due to him being acquitted on multiple criminal charges over the years) over the last few decades he always seems to escape any major consequences from his actions. Currently however, the former president is facing four criminal indictments and while many legal experts can see paths in which he may defend, pardon or otherwise avoid serious punishments in most of them the most recent indictment from Georgia is another story. “Due to Georgia Donald Trump is most likely going to jail.” Says entertainment lawyer, executive and producer Warren D. Robinson. “Unlike the New York case, where his sentence will likely not be jail time or the Federal cases where he has a range of possible sentences (or could pardon himself or another republican president could pardon him) there are no such options in Georgia. Fulton county district attorney Fani Willis indicted him under what is known as a RICO statute; conviction on this requires a mandatory minimum of five years in prison. Furthermore, in Georgia republican governor Brien Kemp does not have the power to pardon (not that he would anyway he is no friend of Trump) and even if Trump wins the presidency he can’t pardon himself on state charges.” Robinson acknowledges that Trump is presumed innocent and that the prosecution has a very high bar to successfully convict a former President but he believes the weight of the evidence is not in Donald Trump’s favor. “You have 19 indicted co-conspirators,” says Robinson, “it’s not going to take very long before those people start talking and making deals to turn on the big fish here, the former President. I see no scenario in which Fani Willis will be inclined to make any deal with Donald Trump. Now, if he wins the presidency and this case is not tried yet, he can delay because there is no way you are going to be able to try a sitting President but in the end (absent a change in the law from the state legislature which is not as far fetched as it may sound) I think it is very likely here, Trump is going to jail.”


According to a statement, “Entertainment executive and producer, Warren D. Robinson believes that when organizations are willing to have open and honest conversations about race and their own bias they can commit to meaningful change. We have seen this recently in the form of Hollywood award shows, particularly, the Grammys and the Academy Awards (Oscars). The Recording Academy and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have both taken concrete steps to diversify their ranks and address inherit biases in their voting processes. As a result we have the most diverse crop of award winners/nominees, respectively, we’ve ever seen. Contrast that with the scandal and production shutdown currently at CBS’s The Talk, which resulted because a co-host was unable to properly engage in a conversation about race, address her own bias and commit to doing better. ‘The key part to every conversation’ Warren says, ‘starts with listening. Listening and hearing are different and if you are unable to listen then you are unable to have a conversation.’
