All hell is breaking loose in one of Donald Trump’s criminal trials.
Donald Trump just did the unexpected.
And Donald Trump blindsided Fani Willis with this shocking curveball.
Federal Judge Steven Jones turned down a request by former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows to move the charges Willis indicted him for to federal court.
Willis indicted Trump, Meadows and 17 other co-defendants in a stitched-together and legally flimsy RINO indictment for contesting the results of the 2020 election.
Legal observers found it preposterous that Willis indicted Meadows in the first place claiming setting up a phone call and obtaining the phone numbers for Georgia officials amounted to participation in a criminal conspiracy to defraud state officials.
Meadows argued that his actions were in his capacity as a government official and thus the judge should order his case moved to federal court.
Willis – an elected Democrat – stuck to the lawfare plan of indicting Trump and his allies in heavily Democrat jurisdictions.
Meadows, Trump and the rest are set to stand trial in Fulton County, which is the most heavily Democrat stronghold in the state of Georgia.
The request to move the case to federal court would allow Meadows a fair trial by pulling a jury pool from 10 counties which provided for a more representative population sample for the jury as opposed to Fulton County’s overwhelming number of Democrat residents.
But when Meadows lost his motion Trump and his lawyers realized an Obama judge wouldn’t give them a fair hearing and decided not to file a motion to move the case to federal court.
“Former President Donald Trump said in a legal filing Thursday he wouldn’t seek to move the state racketeering case against him to a federal jurisdiction, a surprise move that would mean his Georgia trial would likely be televised,” the Wall Street Journal exclusively reported.
By keeping his case in Fulton County Court, Trump will guarantee a televised proceeding.
Judge Scott McAfee already ruled the case will be livestreamed so all Americans can watch this kangaroo court play out.
Democrats like Adam Schiff demanded the Judicial Conference break its own rules and allow cameras in the courtroom for Biden prosecutor Jack Smith’s sham trials against Trump over contesting the 2020 election and the Mar-a-Lago document witch hunt.
Trump proceeding with a televised trial in Georgia may be a case of “be careful what you wish for.”
Democrats indicting Donald Trump four times only caused his poll numbers to go up.
An ABC/Washington Post poll showed Trump leading Joe Biden by 10 points.
A televised Trump trial where Americans get to see an unhinged Democrat prosecutor like Fani Willis attempt to send Trump to jail for asking Americans to watch TV and requesting recounts will put the weaponization of the government on trial in the 2024 presidential election.
And that’s already proven to be a failed strategy for Democrats.
