"You’d have to be crazy not to be worried. It’s — almost everyone, Republican and Democrat who has any kind of independence has said it’s a very strong indictment," Wallace told told anchor Abby Phillip on a recent installment of CNN Tonight.

"Now, an indictment is not proof," he clarified. "And a lot of people who were indicted end up being found not guilty, but there’s every reason for him to worry. And as a man who just turned 77, you talk about a jail term, it could be a life sentence if it were to happen."

"But on the other hand, you know, Donald Trump has led a very different life than the rest of us," Wallace continued. "He’s been involved in litigation for decades, not this kind, not a criminal case where he could actually face jail time, but, you know, this is a lot more in his wheelhouse than it is for the average person."

Wallace also marveled at Trump's apparent ability to "keep on keeping on despite all of the incoming that he faces all the time."

"Yes, I mean, that is an interesting point," Phillip replied. "I mean, you can love him or hate him, but that’s true. He has a very high tolerance for this kind of thing almost to a fault. In fact, maybe if his tolerance for this were a little bit lower, he would not have found himself in this situation."
