ASAP Rocky To Remain In Prison Despite Trump’s Intervention
It turns out president Trump is not as powerful or as influential as he likes to believe. Or the Swedish government just don’t give a fuck – it’s more of the latter in this case.
reports the prosecutor in charge of A$AP Rocky’s case remains immovable on the subject of releasee, despite the involvement of the President of the United States.
The Swedish Prime Minister, who president Trump spoke to on request of Kanye West, made it clear that “in Sweden everyone is equal before the law and that the government cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings.”
The U.S. State Dept. waged a full court press last Thursday (July 18), trying to get A$AP out of jail, but failed.
Sources connected to the case believe the intervention by the State Dept. and Trump could actually hurt Rocky’s chances of freedom because they are trying to get in the prosecutor’s business. ASAP’s camp now fear the prosecutor will choose to go harder on Rocky just to prove he hasn’t been blandished by the U.S. government.
Rocky was arrested on July 2 in Stockholm
for defending himself against a man who assaulted him first. He has been in Swedish prison for over 2 weeks despite not being charged and could be sentenced to 6 years in prison if found guilty.
