Trump is proposing a 2026 date for one of his election interference trials. His modus operandi is to stall and put up roadblocks to avoid the day of reckoning in the courtroom. Normal defendants cannot afford to do what Trump does: they don't negotiate a trial date. They show up for their trial when the judge says or take a plea deal before hand. (That's the real two-tiered justice system).

There is good chance that there will not be a verdict rendered in any of Trump's trials before the presidential election. That allows Trump deadenders to pretend he is innocent of all 91 crimes for which he's been charged.

Trump's henchman don't have his deep pockets or a cult following willing to contribute the contents of their piggy banks toward their defense funds. it's been reported that Rudy Giuliani begged Trump for money to help with his defense. Trump turned him down. Giuliani has his house on the market. He is reportedly broke or close to it.

While Trump may be able to avoid his day in court, all of his 19 co-defendants probably cannot or will not. Besides the expense, it's unsettling to have a court date hanging overhead like Damocles' sword. Individually the co-defendants may have had minor roles. Besides, they were acting on Trump's behalf not their own. As with all organized crime cases, the little fish can be expected to flip on the big fish. Or the least, incriminate Trump with their guilty pleas.

The co-defendants' trials are likely to be better reported than the presidential campaigns. Courtroom dramas will be more newsworthy than Trump's Nuremberg rallies. That doesn't bode well for Trump's election hopes.

What happens when Trump's confederates plead guilty or are found guilty in front of a judge and jury? Most voters will draw the logical conclusion that the micro-manager crime boss is likewise guilty and should be in the big house not the White House.

    There is good chance that there will not be a verdict rendered in any of Trump's trials before the presidential election. That allows Trump deadenders to pretend he is innocent of all 91 crimes for which he's been charged.

    And, likewise, the TDS crowd to preach his guilt.

    The goobers on pb's Legal Advisory Council have noted that Trump's attorneys are now forced to spend so much time preparing to answer these massive indictments that it's possible that no trial can be completed by election day.

    TDS, truly, is deranged. Y'nes asked for this! You got it.

    On our side, many are, at the very least, smirking. Some?, outright laughing...

    ...at y'nes' derangement. Baha baha baha!

    While Trump may be able to avoid his day in court, all of his 19 co-defendants probably cannot or will not.

    That's not what I'm hearing. In the Georgia case, there may be EFFINhundreds of pretrial motions, many that will require extensive hearings so they can be argued. Then?, selecting a jury to try as many as 19 defendants may itself take as long as a year.

    We'll see. But, my guess is that there'll be a lot of angst over this on the TDS side...

    ...and lots of baha baha baha-ing over here.

    Be careful what you wish for. Keehee keehee.

    pb's going to do all he can to watch Shannon tomorrow. She's a serious lawyer. In fact, pb'd consider adding her to his list of goobers. She'll probably have Turley on the show. Being the legal scholar she is, she asks the best possible questions.

    The DA was stupid enough to ask they all go on trial at the same time. Which means, if one gets off, they all get off.


  3. by HatetheSwamp on August 19, 2023 2:38 pm

    OD,

    That's where pb's Three Legal Goobers see a signal that she's probably waaaaaaay over her head.

    Some of the 19 co-defendants, particularly those whose alleged role in the conspiracy was more limited may have strong reasons to seek separate trials.

    If a jury were to convict a set of defendants at an early trial, at least some of the other defendants might decide to plead guilty and cooperate in the trials against the remaining defendants.

    No doubt, the DA will attempt to get some of the defendants to accept plea deal in an exchange for testimony against the Great Satan.

    But, if there's an earlier trial, Trump's trial may not even EFFINbegin before the election.

    It's similar to what HouseGOPs are doing in their attempt to tie Hunter's shenanigans to "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap."

    SOP.

    But that's not the DA's goal, nor are they moving towards that. I agree with you, but there isn't any sign they're willing to do that at this point. I think this is a ruse to get others to plea bargain. And it does show how weak the case is.

    In the cases we used to take down gangs, we used the CCE statutes so we could use much of the same evidence with each one, but they were tried separately. In one case, we arrested 22, charged 13 and got 9 life sentences. It's a stronger case to charge separately.
