Donald Trump, left, is under five indictments in three jurisdictions, potentially involving up to 10 years in jail, with more indictments to come. Rahul Gandhi, leader of India’s main opposition party, was facing two years in prison for insulting Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In Pakistan, former prime minister Imran Khan has just been arrested.
