New York Show Trial Convicts Trump on All Counts

former-president-donald-trump-jr-speaks

Former President Trump, in a shocking and unprecedented decision, was found guilty on all counts in what many see as a blatantly political show trial. This conviction, making him the first former president in U.S. history to be found guilty of a crime, is widely viewed as a shameless attempt to imprison a political opponent and disrupt the 2024 election.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree—charges Trump vehemently denied, pleading not guilty. The trial has been condemned by many as a farce designed to damage Trump’s candidacy and silence his voice.

Despite a glaring lack of evidence, the jury found Trump guilty on all counts. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of 4 years, totaling a potential sentence of 136 years—a sentence clearly intended to crush his political future.

Judge Juan Merchan, whose impartiality has been questioned from the beginning, presided over the trial and invited the jury to deliver its verdict after only two days of deliberations. The timing of the sentencing, set for July 11th—just four days before the Republican National Convention—is seen as a strategic move to impact Trump’s formal nomination as the 2024 Republican presidential candidate.

Speaking to reporters moments after the verdict, Trump expressed his outrage at what he described as a politically motivated sham trial.

“This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt as a rigged trial and disgrace. It wouldn’t give us a venue change,” Trump declared. “We were at five percent or 6% in this district, in this area. This was a rigged, disgraceful trial.”

He continued, “The real verdict is going to be November 5th by the people. And they know what happened here and everybody knows what happened here. You have a Soros-backed DA and the whole thing.”

Trump maintained his innocence, stating, “We didn’t do anything wrong. I’m a very innocent man. And it’s okay. I’m fighting for our country. I’m fighting for our Constitution. Our whole country is being rigged right now.”

“This case was orchestrated by the Biden administration to wound or hurt an opponent, a political opponent. And I think it’s just a disgrace. We’ll keep fighting—we’ll fight till the end and we’ll win because our country’s gone to hell. We don’t have the same country anymore. We have a divided mess. We’re a nation of decline, serious decline,” he asserted.

Trump highlighted the current state of the nation, saying, “Millions and millions of people are pouring into our country right now from prisons and from mental institutions, terrorists. And they’re taking over our country. We have a country that’s in big trouble.”

“This was a rigged decision right from day one, with a conflicted judge who should have never been allowed to try this case. Never,” he reiterated. “And we will fight for our Constitution. This is long from over.”

During closing arguments, Trump’s defense attorneys firmly stated his innocence, arguing that District Attorney Bragg “did not meet the burden of proof. Period.”

“President Trump is innocent. He did not commit any crimes. The district attorney did not meet the burden of proof. Period,” said defense lawyer Todd Blanche. He emphasized that the case was about documents and not about any alleged encounter with Stormy Daniels or a nondisclosure agreement.

Blanche clarified that the charges revolved around whether Trump had anything to do with payments to his ex-attorney, Michael Cohen, on his personal accounting ledger, to which he argued, “The bookings were accurate and there was no intent to defraud and there was no conspiracy to influence the 2016 election.”

Blanche further discredited Cohen’s testimony, pointing out his history of lying to Congress, judges, and his own family, stating, “You cannot send someone to prison based upon the words of Michael Cohen. The records are not false and there was no intent to defraud.”

In contrast, prosecutor Joshua Steinglass argued that Trump’s intent to defraud “could not be any clearer,” accusing him of creating an elaborate scheme to conceal payments and benefit himself.

Steinglass defended the use of Cohen as a witness, despite his dubious credibility, claiming that Cohen’s actions were a reflection of Trump’s own unethical practices.

The defense’s motion to dismiss the case after Cohen’s testimony was denied, highlighting the court’s bias and the predetermined nature of the trial.

Former President Trump remains defiant, promising to continue his fight for justice and the American people, confident that the truth will prevail and that the real verdict will be delivered by the voters in the upcoming election. This conviction is not just an attack on Trump but on democracy itself, and it is imperative that the American people see through this charade and stand up for their rights and their Constitution.

Trump Drops “Yuge” VP Hint

national-harbor-md-usa-february-241

Former President Trump has teased that he has “sort of a pretty good idea” of who his vice presidential running mate will be but plans to announce his selection during this summer’s Republican National Convention.

In a recent interview at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., Trump shared his thoughts following meetings with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. When asked if his potential running mate was present at any of these meetings, Trump responded, “Probably. I don’t want to go into details, but I think the announcement will probably happen during the convention. We have some very good people in mind.”

The Republican National Convention will be held from July 15-18 in Milwaukee. Among the names speculated to be on Trump’s shortlist is Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin. Trump mentioned, “Yes, I think I could consider that. He would be on that list.”

During the interview, Trump was also asked about his thoughts on President Biden as a father following Hunter Biden’s conviction on federal gun charges. Trump acknowledged the difficulty of the situation, saying, “It’s a very serious thing. I understand that whole subject pretty well because I’ve had it with people who have it in their family. It’s a very tough thing, whether it’s alcohol or drugs. It’s a tough moment for any family involved in that.”

Hunter Biden was recently convicted of three felony charges related to the purchase of a revolver in 2018 when he lied on a federal gun-purchase form by claiming he was not illegally using or addicted to drugs. President Biden has stated that he will not use his presidential powers to appeal his son’s conviction, emphasizing his pride in Hunter’s recovery journey.

Later in the interview, Trump addressed former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s potential Senate run. Hogan, a Republican who did not endorse Trump in the 2016 and 2020 elections and has endorsed Nikki Haley over Trump, is someone Trump would like to see win. “Yeah, I’d like to see him win,” Trump said. “I think he has a good chance to win.”

As the anticipation builds, all eyes will be on the Republican National Convention this summer for the much-awaited announcement of Trump’s vice presidential pick.

Trump Fights Back Against Rigged Judicial System

former-president-donald-trump-jr-speaks

Former President Donald Trump has declared himself “the political prisoner of a failing nation,” following a Manhattan jury’s outrageous verdict finding him guilty in his business records trial. Trump’s bold statement, made on Truth Social on Tuesday, resonates with patriotic Americans who are increasingly concerned about the blatant politicization of the justice system.

In his video, Trump underscored the immense importance of November 5th, calling it “the most important day in the history of our country.” This pivotal date marks the next presidential election, where Trump vows to reclaim his rightful place and once again “make America great again.”

The jury’s verdict, which found Trump guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree related to payments made by Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, to adult actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election, is seen by many as nothing short of a politically motivated witch hunt. This prosecution, spearheaded by a biased legal system, is a transparent attempt to manipulate the 2020 election outcome and tarnish Trump’s legacy.

“I am the political prisoner of a failing nation,” Trump declared. “But I will soon be free, on November 5th, the most important day in the history of our country. And we will, together, make America great again. Thank you.”

Trump has been outspoken about the trial’s true nature, telling reporters that the guilty verdict was orchestrated by the Biden administration to cripple a powerful political opponent. He rightfully described the decision as a “rigged verdict,” stressing that the “real verdict” will be delivered by the American people on November 5th.

In the wake of this unjust verdict, Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) have witnessed a massive surge in donations, a testament to his enduring support. The Trump campaign reported an impressive $141 million raised in May alone, with nearly $53 million pouring in within just 24 hours following the conviction. This flood of financial support underscores the unwavering loyalty and enthusiasm of Trump’s base.

An overnight poll by HarrisX, conducted after the jury’s politically charged decision, revealed that 43 percent of respondents would vote for Trump if the election were held today, compared to 42 percent for Biden, with 14 percent undecided. Trump’s favorability also saw a notable increase, with an ABC News poll showing his favorable rating rising to 31 percent from 29 percent in March, while Biden’s favorability dipped to 32 percent from 33 percent.

These developments are a rallying cry against a justice system they see as weaponized for political gain. The former president’s unyielding resolve and continued popularity highlight the deep divisions within the country and underscore the critical importance of the upcoming election.

This trial and its aftermath serve as a glaring reminder of the lengths to which the establishment will go to undermine Trump. For Trump and his supporters, the fight for justice, integrity, and the future of America is far from over. November 5th stands as a pivotal moment in the nation’s history, a chance for the American people to right their wrongs and restore true leadership.

What If Trump Is Convicted?

ormer-president-donald-trump-speaks

A Manhattan jury began deliberations Wednesday in former President Trump’s New York criminal trial, a case widely seen as a politically motivated witch hunt against the 45th President. The outcome of this trial could significantly impact the 2024 presidential election and set new precedents in New York’s criminal case law. A not guilty verdict would provide Trump with a strong basis for a malicious prosecution lawsuit, according to legal experts who spoke with Fox News Digital.

“This case is all or nothing, assuming there is a verdict and not a hung jury,” said Trey Gowdy, “Sunday Night in America” host and former federal prosecutor.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has indicted Trump on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. Trump, standing firm, has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The charges are related to alleged payments made before the 2016 presidential election to silence adult film star Stormy Daniels about a supposed 2006 encounter. Prosecutors must convince the jury that Trump falsified business records to cover up another crime, which Bragg argues elevates the charges to felonies. This approach is seen by many as a blatant attempt to weaponize the legal system against a political opponent.

Louis Gelormino, a Staten Island defense attorney, noted that the jury is likely to render the same verdict on all counts. “The charges are essentially the same crime repeated,” he told Fox News Digital.

Gowdy, present in the courtroom, pointed out the improbability of mixed verdicts. “I cannot foresee a verdict with some counts as guilty and others not. It’s either all guilty or all not guilty unless there’s a lesser included misdemeanor charge,” he said.

The trial has been marked by claims of political bias. Bragg, whose office has aggressively pursued this case, faces criticism for what many see as a baseless attack on Trump. Gelormino, with 45 years of criminal law experience in New York, called the case “absurd” and “obscene,” especially given the target is a former President of the United States.

If Trump is convicted, he would still be eligible to run for President. However, his campaign could be severely restricted depending on the sentence. Legal experts speculate about possible outcomes, including probation, home confinement, or even imprisonment—though the latter is unlikely for a 77-year-old without a criminal record.

The idea of Trump in jail has led to discussions about Secret Service coordination and the logistics of incarcerating a former president. Alternatives like home confinement at Mar-a-Lago would hamper his ability to campaign effectively. Probation would place Trump under significant restrictions, potentially interfering with his 2024 campaign activities.

Gelormino warned about the potential for a politically motivated probation officer to abuse power. “Probation officers in New York City tend to be Democrats, which raises concerns about fair treatment,” he said.

Trump has consistently denounced the trial as a “witch hunt” orchestrated by Democrats, with Judge Merchan labeled as “conflicted.” If convicted, Trump cannot pardon himself since the case is under state jurisdiction, presenting unprecedented legal challenges.

Should the jury fail to reach a verdict, resulting in a mistrial, prosecutors are expected to retry the case swiftly. Given Bragg’s aggressive stance and Trump’s insistence on his innocence, a quick resolution seems unlikely.

In the event of an acquittal, Trump could potentially sue for malicious prosecution. Gelormino believes Trump has a strong case against DA Bragg’s office and could pursue legal action for malfeasance against the judge, though the latter might be more challenging.

New York City Councilman Joe Borelli advised Trump to move on if acquitted, suggesting he let surrogates handle discussions about the prosecutions while he focuses on expanding his voter base. This strategy could prove effective, as evidenced by a recent rally in the Bronx that attracted a substantial crowd.

However, given Trump’s tenacity, it is likely he will pursue legal action if vindicated. “I think he’s got a damn good case for malicious prosecution and will undoubtedly take steps to hold those responsible accountable,” Gelormino concluded.
