...right there, in bold.

How do you reconcile all of that criticism with the fact that neither charges or a conviction can be used to keep Trump from assuming office?

Trump Indictment: Why A Conviction—Or Imprisonment—Wouldn’t Prevent Him From Being President

The charges, some of which carry a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison, would not prevent Trump from continuing his third campaign for the White House nor would a conviction keep him from holding office, experts have said, noting the Constitution only requires presidential candidates to be natural-born citizens who are at least 35 years old and have lived in the country for 14 years.

If Trump is convicted and sentenced to prison, he could potentially serve as president from behind bars—a scenario that would introduce unprecedented security and logistical challenges, Reuters noted.
