Donald Trump Facing Expulsion From SAG-AFTRA, Board Holds Hearing
Donald Trump SAG-AFTRA Might Boot Him Out ... Disciplinary Hearing to be Held

11:53 AM PT -- 12/19 -- In a special session, the SAG-AFTRA’s national board overwhelmingly voted to find probable cause of a violation of its constitution by Trump and will hold a disciplinary hearing. If the board finds him guilty, possible penalties include reprimand, censure, fines, suspension from the rights and privileges of membership or expulsion from SAG-AFTRA.
Some of the charges specifically mention Trump's role in inciting the failed coup 2 weeks ago and "in sustaining a reckless campaign of misinformation aimed at discrediting and ultimately threatening the safety of journalists, many of whom are SAG-AFTRA members."
Donald Trump's in jeopardy of losing another vote -- this one with Hollywood's labor union -- and it could cost him a return to his beloved 'Apprentice.'
Trump is facing expulsion from SAG-AFTRA, with the union's board of directors set to gather Tuesday for a special session that could decide DT's fate ... according to Deadline.
There's a lot riding on Tuesday's meeting regarding possible disciplinary action for Trump ... if he's expelled from the Screen Actors Guild, he couldn't do "The Apprentice" again.
As you know, Trump starred in "The Apprentice" and 'Celebrity Apprentice' before becoming President, and he's been a union member since 1989.
Trump's expulsion requires a two-thirds vote from the national board, and Tuesday's emergency meeting is just the first step in a long process, which includes a hearing on the charges he's facing.
The SAG-AFTRA Constitution says members can be expelled or suspended for "engaging in actions antagonistic to the interests or integrity of the union." Trump's repeatedly labeled the media an enemy of the people, but the insurrection seems to be the tipping point here.
