Come ON NOW!….
Criminal Felony indictments in FOUR places amounting to 91 charges?
Ain’t NOBODY can BEAT all THAT…
Including one Donald J. Trump and of course he KNOW THAT….
This should surpirse no one…
Trump’s strategy has always been to try to get to be President gambling that BEING President would be his ‘get out of jail FREE’ card…
He shits like everyone else and IS worried….
The judges ain’t intimidated by his antics….
Nor will juries in NYC and Wash D.C…..
Former President Trump is breezing to the GOP nomination — but, in private, is bracing for the genuine possibility that he’ll be the first convicted felon in U.S. history to represent a major party.
Why it matters: Sources tell us Trump believes he’d likely be convicted if the Jan. 6 case comes to trial later this spring in Washington. If that’s delayed, he could face a guilty verdict in the Manhattan hush-money case.
- Trump thinks he could still win the White House — partly by making daily, theatrical appearances whenever courts are hearing his four cases, totaling 91 felony charges. But his advisers worry independents will be turned off by a conviction in a jury trial.
State of play: U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is presiding over the Jan. 6 case, has been tough on Capitol rioters tried in her court, and has signaled she’ll cut Trump no breaks. Jurors will be drawn from D.C., which is overwhelmingly Democratic.
- Trump lawyers once saw it as highly likely that the case would come to trial before the Republican convention in Milwaukee in July. But with all their maneuvering, including claiming that the former president is immune from prosecution, a delay is looking more likely by the day.
- The case was to begin March 4. But the trial has now been dropped from a public court calendar, The Washington Post reported Thursday. Appeals could push the trial into late spring or summer. And the closer a trial date gets to Election Day, the less likely it is to occur.
- What’s now more likely: Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who has accused Trump of buying the silence of porn star Stormy Daniels, may fill the vacuum by beginning his trial as soon as March 25. Bragg has begun trying to add urgency and heft to his case by rebranding it as election interference, The New York Times reported last week.
Between the lines: Those two cases, in D.C. and Manhattan, are the two likely to have the juries most hostile to Trump. The other two are in Georgia and Florida….
