11. He's going to prison with or without the deal

In fact, he faces up to 80 years (effectively a life sentence) for the eight counts he was convicted of in the Eastern District of Virginia.

I think all of the speculation about his safety being an issue is hokum. On the one hand, folks say he wouldn't be safe in jail. On the other hand, folks say he wouldn't be safe out of jail. Both are true if someone really wants to risk doing him harm (for what? retribution? because he didn't lie? because he did lie?) And neither is true if no one really wants to risk doing him harm.

For what its worth, he has gone to great expense trying to stay out of jail, even before he was tried (which arguably would have been his greatest period of risk if you think folks wanted to silence him).
