If Donald Trump take a stand in court (in any of his cases), will he be (formally) accused of perjury?

Perjury (also known as foreswearing) is the intentional act of swearing a false oath or falsifying an affirmation to tell the truth, whether spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official proceeding.

IANAL, but my impression is that perjury indictments are rare because they are hard to prove. I have no doubt that Trump will lie under oath, but a prosecution for perjury seems unlikely. (I’m slightly nervous about this stance, because he lies so much, so I’m hoping to influence the market downwards so I can sell out early just in case.)

predicts NO

Again: Accused by whom? Need more clarity. Those of you betting, are you assuming this means formal charges of perjury, or just some pundit somewhere saying “hey that’s prob perjury” about Trump’s testimony?

predicts YES

@KarlVoskuil formal charges of perjury

What qualifies as “accused”? An indictment?
