If Trump is truly innocent of all charges, he should be eager to counter the prosecution in court. But he knows he’s guilty AF and has no defense other than muddy the waters and seek endless delays.

And BTW, Trump fans, claiming bias in the entire judiciary is both nonsensical and tiresome.

Trump is innocent of all the charges. Getting the trial moved to a neutral jurisdiction like Staten Island is a sensible solution to the charges of bias hanging over and marring this trial, which has all the hallmarks of a textbook political persecution.

But the real jury will be the voters at the ballot box in November, so all of this is probably null and void.

Would the fact that Staten Island is the only borrough Trump won have anything to do with you calling a "neutral jurisdiction?" lmao

Is that how criminal trials are adjudicated in Russia? At the ballot box? Is that how Navalny ended up in prison and then dead?

No more hush-hush going forward.

America will see it's first election interference case against a former president.

For a guy who swears he’s innocent, Trump sure isn’t rushing to clear his name by getting his day in court.

Its almost like he knows he’s guilty, lol.

He's only presumed innocent in a court of law. In the court of legal opinion, we all know he's a slimy criminal.

Err, public opinion.

It’s almost as if he knows that the testimony to be elicited under oath will be politically as well as legally damaging….

He and his legal team know what evidence and testimony will be presented in court. It was shared with them.

A lot of the damning testimony will be from Trump's own people. At which point we'll hear how they are a bunch of lying radical RINO leftist witch hunters.

@JJE,

Trump is innocent of all the charges.

Really?

How do you know?

The bond is looking shaky, truth social stocks have bombed in a week for which he may now be under investigation for securities fraud.

And next week the first criminal trial of a U.S. President begins.

What a time to be alive!

There aren't any charges of bias. The jury hasn't even been selected yet, but there is no reason to suspect he won't get a fair jury.

which has all the hallmarks of a textbook political persecution.

Which isn't relevant in this case.

But the real jury will be the voters at the ballot box in November, so all of this is probably null and void.

Well not really. Voters will decide who they want for president, most likely Biden.

This trial will determine if Trump is guilty of election interference.

The "bond" wasn't actually even a bond. The fine print of the agreement said that if Trump's appeal failed, Trump had to pay, not the bond company.

That's not how bonds work. With a bond company, they are on the hook.

t’s almost as if he knows that the testimony to be elicited under oath will be politically as well as legally damaging….

He and his legal team know what evidence and testimony will be presented in court. It was shared with them.

My point exactly. Under the rules of ore-trial disclosure, Trump’s Z-list attorneys have witness lists as well has the full transcripts of their depositions under oath.

He knows they have him by the short hairs. He knows that not only will he look guilty AF (because he IS guilty AF), it will also be politically damaging.

Thus the rush to discredit the whole process.
