It certainly could help him win the Republican primary, given the legitimate anger that it would stir.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan said an indictment would help Donald Trump’s 2024 bid and that he is rooting for anyone but the former president this time around.
Ryan, speaking Tuesday at Finseca’s annual Advanced Markets conference, was asked about Trump’s possible indictment from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. Reports indicate that Trump may be arrested this week over an alleged $130,000 hush money payment wired to porn star Stormy Daniels right before the 2016 elections . . .
But Ryan, who said he still is not on speaking terms with the former president, added that he fears an indictment could bolster Trump politically.
“It does seem a little petty and ridiculous the DA is doing this. It looks very vengeful and political, and I don’t think you could do anything to help Donald Trump more than this DA doing what he’s doing,” Ryan said, referring to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
The latest indications are that an indictment is coming Wednesday or Thursday.

What if Bragg never intended to indict DJT but just wanted to stir the pot to take heat off of the Biden/china $$$ ? Maybe there is no indictment at all, just another distraction to lure the media away from the real story? I love the Trump policies, but cringe when he gets into the personal attacks. Hoping we get a trumpian candidate without the childish bluster. IF DJT is indicted, the supporters will dig in their heels, the hard left will cheer like people rooting for the guy to jump off the building. And then there is the middle voter, left with another crappy option. Either way, they hold their nose, it stinks.
