He's trying everything he has to avoid the trial starting on Monday. This is an attempt to have the judge respond to this clear violation of the gag order, so that he can appeal it.

"two sleaze bags who have, with their lies and misrepresentations, cost our Country dearly!”

That’s some hard projecting.

How has a porn star cost the country dearly? It’s not like his reputation was sterling before he tried to hush her up.

Needs a physical gag order.

This Moron has the self-control of a two-year old - the IQ level also...

Just as with the E. Jean Carroll case, he loses, can't control himself, and then does the same thing again...

I do agree that this is also his attempt to delay things by trying to provoke the judge who has been more than fair to him...

Have to say one thing in his favor though, when Trump talks about "sleazebags", there's no one more authoritative on that subject...just like when he talks about marital fidelity...

Maybe the reason Trump is melting down and lashing out is because he knows how incompetent his lawyers are...

There are multiple Jeremy Rosenbergs in New York City, as former President Donald Trump's attorneys found out Tuesday after they sent a subpoena to the wrong one.

Last month, Trump's attorneys in his criminal hush money case in Manhattan sought to subpoena the Jeremy Rosenberg who was a supervising investigator in the Manhattan district attorney's office.

Instead, according to court filings revealed Tuesday, the subpoena went to another Jeremy Rosenberg.

What brilliant legal minds...on the other hand, maybe they saw how Trump stiffed his best bud Giuliani of $2million in legal fees and are acting accordingly...

Welcome to "MAGA-I'm-Going-to Jail" World...

two sleaze bags

Question. Why was Trump associating with two sleaze bags? One who was his personal fixer for years.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

Gregory Germain, a professor at Syracuse University College of Law, described the latest post as a “close call” unlikely to result in Trump being held in contempt.

Exactly. These two potential witnesses have not exactly been media shy recently. Trump has every right to respond to their public assertions. Nothingburger.

Trump has every right to respond to their public assertions

Why doesn’t he want to do it in court?

You know why.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

Trump knows what’s coming. His attorney has the depositions and the witness list.

He’s trying to delay or to even force a mistrial because he knows he is screwed.

11 ( +13 / -2 )

In a post on his Truth Social platform Wednesday, Trump called his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, and the adult film actor Stormy Daniels "two sleaze bags who have, with their lies and misrepresentations, cost our Country dearly!”

I don't believe in digital censorship, but if there is not a digital analogue to the Hannibal Lecter mask from Silence of the Lambs for adjudicated with an oversized megaphone then the whole legal system is called into question.

Of course DT is still benefiting form a two-tiered justice system for the propertied and privileged.

Sleazy…one might say the same about this judge and this Democrat attack get Trump fiasco, that’s the sleaze tactic that makes us wonder why?

I think the Dems don’t know what’s coming.

His attorney has the depositions and the witness list. 

Ok

He’s trying to delay or to even force a mistrial because he knows he is screwed.

I would too, knowing what the Dems plans are at trying to take this guy out of the election cycle. I would play every trick I could. I don’t blame him.

Well, he will now finally have to answer for his crimes, no more running, finally judgment will be met.

Alleged to have been broken Bass, wait until the trial.

But just to clarify for you; it’s in the article above. Falsifying business records. In case you were unaware that is a crime, whatever your political affiliations. It is a crime and has been throughout your entire lifetime.

The Prosecutors do too....so do E. Jean Carroll's lawyers...and Jack Smith...

Right.

Is it surrendering when you previously state unequivocally that life begins at conception, then later say a 15 week abortion is OK?

Daniels has spoken out about harassment she’s received from the former president’s supporters, who she said were “encouraged and commended” by Trump.

What despicable people, Trump supporters are, sending death threats to Stormy, who has done nothing wrong.

Hearing that from the left is like Hillary saying she’s a licensed cardiologist.

If the arrest really occurs (unlikely) I can't wait to see what's in the indictment. I'm not sure where this guy went to law school, but it sounds like he needs some refresher courses. I don't think he is worried about winning or losing his case, so if he loses he will go a long way in helping President Trump in his reelection win.

Election interference. That thing you guys claim to care about.

Yes, we do, but what crime???

I did some research today: The alleged "crime" of violating campaign finance law was to have occurred in 2016, 7 years ago. However, New York State statutes of limitations on campaign finance law violations generally range from one year to 6 years. On the federal side, such cases have up to five years for charges to be filed. If the charge is Tax Fraud, then New York State Tax Law places a three-year statute of limitations. So either way, the DNC, DA Bragg, and the deranged radical Left don't even have a snowball's chance on a hot July noon. ROFL

What despicable people, Trump supporters are,

Now imagine how we feel about Biden and his administration and multiple that times 12

sending death threats to Stormy,

The left did to Clarence Thomas, Rand Paul MTG, Matt Gaetz, Justice Kavanaugh, and Barrett

who have done nothing wrong.

Not going to jail though.

You better keep doing your research, friend. The falsification of business records took place in 2017. Trump and his maga morons don't even have a snowball's chance on a hot July noon. rofl

The left did to Clarence Thomas, Rand Paul MTG,

MAGA really have the minor talent of logical conflation that ensnares the less aware.

Conflating actual threats of violence and incitement online by former presidents, lawmakers et al in the context of legal proceedings.

To some conservatives getting threatened by randos on Xitter.

It is disingenuous and obviously deceptive and weak MAGAism. But so goes demagoguery.

Falsifying business records.

So they are trying to imprison him for mislabeling an expense in his financial records that most likely was entered by an accountant. This isn't a crime, it's a bookkeeping error fixed by an audit and payment of any additional taxes owed, but since Trump is running, we need to change the entire rule book.

-11 ( +1 / -12 )

This isn't a crime

It is. You don’t know more than the DA.

A swing and a miss. Nice try. It was multiple documents, and his signature is on all of them.

This isn't a crime,

It is too a crime.

it's a bookkeeping error fixed by an audit and payment of any additional taxes owed,

Yes, a series of "errors." Designed to hide the nature of the payouts and in excess of campaign contribution limits.

but since Trump is running, we need to change the entire rule book.

What specific statute was changed to "get" Trump? Be specific.

We do, we can look it up, his lawyers do, that’s why they are fighting this.

Well, the Dems are trying to make it into a crime. Again, an error that could easily be made and fixed.

Yes, a series of "errors." Designed to hide the nature of the payouts and in excess of campaign contribution limits.

Ok, so more clam digging….

20167 years ago. However, New York State statutes of limitations on campaign finance law violations generally range from one year to 6 years.

-11 ( +0 / -11 )

Again, what crime???

Again, the crimes listed in the indictment. I've already posted a link directly from the Manhattan DA. It's less than 20 pages, and gives the specific statute and dates of the alleged crimes.

Might be? That’s like saying U2 are professional soccer players

har. U2 aren't soccer players. Are you saying Cohen isn't a liar? What a terrible analogy.

Enter: Joe Biden

Quick, a squirrel!

I've already addressed this. The alleged crime happened in 2017. He was charged in 2023. This is nonsense, and if it had any teeth, Trump's lawyers would have already used it to get the case tossed. Not wait until days before the trial. Pathetic.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

And when you lose will you claim it was all fixed or will you accept that 45s legal team had no defense?

You already have your excuses, I suspect it will be the former.

Trump fired his female lawyer Alina Habba.

Again, the crimes listed in the indictment.

Which really are no crimes, so where is the crime??

I've already posted a link directly from the Manhattan DA. It's less than 20 pages, and gives the specific statute and dates of the alleged crimes.

I read them. So once again, nothing.

har. U2 aren't soccer players

Exactly, now we are seeing eye to eye.

lol ok ironside.

That thought goes both ways.

I've already addressed this. The alleged crime happened in 2017. He was charged in 2023. This is nonsense,

Yup! A shame what the left is doing!

and if it had any teeth, Trump's lawyers would have already used it to get the case tossed. Not wait until days before the trial. Pathetic

So in other words, the Dems have nothing really.

Now here’s a Democrat liberal Constitutionalist who knows what he’s talking about.

And not doing a very good job given they are 0-3 getting it delayed, he's been gagged twice, and they subpoenaed the wrong person...

So they are trying to imprison him

Well I was thinking hefty fine but you've already have him going behind bars...you may be right...

for mislabeling an expense in his financial records that most likely was entered by an accountant.

Who witnesses, emails, and records will prove it was at the direction of Trump...

This isn't a crime

Falsify your tax return and bank records this year - you have a couple more days to file...defend yourself by stating that isn't a crime...tell us how that goes for you...
