Donald Trump is heading towards the criminal trials Democrats brought as part of an election interference plot.
Now all hell is breaking loose.
And a judge turned Trump’s life upside down with this ruling no one saw coming.
Democrat prosecutors brought indictments against Trump in heavily Democrat jurisdictions of Atlanta, New York City, and Washington, D.C. with the knowledge a Democrat judge would oversee the proceeding and ensure a show trial straight out of Soviet Russia.
But because of the circumstances of the Mar-a-Lago document case, Joe Biden prosecutor Jack Smith had to indict Trump in Florida, a state where Trump stood a chance of a fair trial in front of a fair judge who wasn’t working on behalf of Joe Biden’s re-election campaign.
Judge Aileen Cannon drew the assignment on the Mar-a-Lago document case and repeatedly called out Joe Biden’s prosecutors for trying to railroad Trump.
Cannon issued a ruling delaying the pretrial motion schedule in the documents case which will assuredly push back the May 20, 2024, trial date to likely after the election.
Trump’s lawyers argued that Smith stacked his two trials against Trump one on top of another – the sham trial against Trump for contesting the 2020 election is set to begin March 4, 2024 in D.C. – which made it impossible for Trump to receive his constitutionally guaranteed right to the strongest legal defense possible as his lawyers had to prepare for two trials at once.
“It’s very difficult to be trying to work with a client in one trial and simultaneously try to prepare that client for another trial,” Trump lawyer Christopher Kise told the judge. “This has been a struggle and a challenge.”
Judge Cannon recognized the unfairness of Smith’s scheme to stack the deck in his favor.
“I’m just having a hard time seeing how realistically this work can be accomplished in this compressed period of time, given the realities that we’re facing,” Judge Cannon stated.
Judge Cannon told both parties they should expect “reasonable adjustments” to the pretrial schedule.
The prosecutors floated the laughable idea that Democrat Judge Tanya Chutkan would toss the 2020 election case.
“The court really cannot let and should not let the D.C. trial drive the schedule here,” Biden prosecutor Jay Bratt told Judge Cannon. “We don’t know what is going to happen in this case. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the D.C. case. That trial could disappear.”
Even though Trump’s actions in challenging the results are protected under multiple First Amendment grounds – free speech and the right to petition the government – Trump’s actions are also shielded from criminal prosecution by presidential immunity.
But critics contend that Chutkan is at heart a Democrat activist so there is no chance she will follow the Constitution and dismiss Smith’s charges against Trump.
Judge Cannon called BS asking Bratt if he can name any time the Department of Justice stacked two criminal trials back-to-back against the same defendant.
Bratt admitted he couldn’t come up with one example of this practice.
Judge Cannon granting Trump’s motion to delay the pretrial motion schedule is the first step in pushing this trial start date past the election.
And that is a big win for Trump.
