The new Trump indictment, according to Bill Maher, host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," will likely set off a "cycle of retaliation" and lead to further presidents being targeted.

Maher expressed his confused feelings regarding the charges against the 45th president during a section of his show this week, calling it a "difficult choice" since "you can't not go after him because he's always guilty," referring to both of his impeachments.

Trump is the first former president to be charged with a crime after a Manhattan grand jury decided to indict him earlier this week over his alleged involvement in a payment to Stormy Daniels in 2016.

"What is genuinely best for the country's and my future, is something I constantly ask myself. I don't want to live in a nation where the president is pursued as soon as they leave office, so I don't want that to be the case "During the panel debate, Maher stated.

On the panel, Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, a Republican, stated that due process must be followed and cautioned Trump's political advisers not to "dance on the grave of your rival because you may fall in."

Maher claims that this circumstance is comparable to a Greek tragedy. Because you start this circle of retribution as in The House of Atreus, it's almost like a Greek tragedy, he said. And Day Two when Biden leaves office, I promise they will try to arrest him.
