According to comedian and HBO host Bill Maher, there is a possibility that Republicans might "try to arrest" President Biden once he leaves office due to the indictment of former President Donald Trump.
Maher initiated a discussion with James Kirchick, a columnist for Tablet Magazine, and Winsome Sears, a Republican Virginia Lieutenant Governor, regarding Trump's indictment.

“I always ask myself the question, ‘What is actually better for the future of the country and my future?’ Because I don’t want to live in a country where we are one of these places where whoever is president, as soon as they get out of office, they go after them,” Maher said.
“It’s almost Greek tragedy-like because you set off this cycle of revenge like The House of Atreus. And I guarantee you when Biden is out of office, Day Two, they will try to arrest him,” Maher continued.
Maher asked Sears about Trump getting arrested, “Where are you on that?"
“Everybody deserves due process right, we don’t even know what the charges are, do you know what they are? I hear that there are 30 of them, right now we’re pretty much speculating. What I’m saying is, I think like my grandmother said, be careful that you don’t dance on the grave of your enemy because you may fall in,” she replied.
“I think the tragic part of this is that there are three other investigations going on right now, all of them far more serious than paying off a porn star,” Kirchick stated.
On Thursday, a Manhattan grand jury indicted Trump on charges linked to a supposed $130,000 payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, which he instructed his attorney Michael Cohen to make before the 2016 election as hush money.
