Trump faces 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the first degree, all of which are tied to the former president’s role in a hush-money payment to a porn star, Stormy Daniels.

But that payoff is not the only hush-money deal that prosecutors plan to highlight. The prosecutors, from the Manhattan district attorney’s office, have accused Mr. Trump of orchestrating a broader scheme to influence the 2016 presidential election by directing his allies to purchase damaging stories about him to keep them under wraps.

    Curt,

    Trump is despicable. But... and I know that I have not clerked at the Supreme Court, nor do I teach at an Ivy League law school... this ain't a crime.


    Two predictions:

    1. Trump will be found guilty in this trial.

    2. When the appeals are exhausted, he'll skate.

    FYI, none of pb's Legal Goobers can get close to taking this seriously. See link.

    And,... I won't predict it, but I'm fairly certain that this farce will help him in the polls.

    Really, none of the 34 counts that Trump is being charged with are crimes? That’s amazing. It’s surprising that Trump’s lawyers did not think of that. Instead, they’ve been incessantly attempting to delay the trial. An impartial observer might conclude that Donald Trump is not eager to clear his name in court.

    Trump’s defense will probably be that he wasn’t trying to bamboozle American voters but hide a sordid affair from his wife. That’ll go over great with female voters especially.

    Curt,

    Based on the Legal Goobers, two things:

    1. They are not the crimes Bragg is charging Trump with, and,
    2. What crimes they may be are beyond the statute of limitations.

    Much more than usual, with Trump running for president, the Court of Pubic Opinion matters. That collective opinion cannot be appealed. The trial won’t be televised, but the news media will offer breathless daily coverage.

    Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, Stormy Daniels as well as former National Enquirer executive David Pecker and other characters are on a list of potential prosecution witnesses.

    Maybe you do but I don’t see this helping Trump’s election chances.

    Thing is, Curt, I heard about this stuff in the year that Trump skunked Hillary in the Electoral College. T'only thing that's new in 024 is that the electorate seems to be pi$$ed by the lawfare. But, we'll see.

    Remember who said it on day 1... nobody is going to jail. This is merely the magician waving his left hand while the right one picks your pocket (again).

    Unless he's dumb enough to piss off his corporate masters, Trump will be our next president.


  7. by Curt_Anderson on April 13, 2024 12:47 pm
    Indy,
    I basically agree with half of your predictions. I would be surprised if Trump was sentenced to prison. The way Trump pushes the envelope, it's within the realm of possibility that a judge will give him a night in jail for his courtroom antics and histrionics. I very much doubt he'll be elected president again.

    The way Trump pushes the envelope, it's within the realm of possibility that a judge will give him a night in jail for his courtroom antics and histrionics.

    If that happens, Trump will win 024 with at least 350 votes.

    HtS,
    If you think that's a big political plus, why don't you find a random jailbird and write his name in on your ballot? There must be some recidivist you can support.

    Me, I prefer candidates who are not saddled with scores of indictments, and already adjudicated liable for rape, defamation and fraud.


  10. by Indy! on April 13, 2024 4:09 pm

    Ds are looking for every way they can think of to let Trump off the hook.

    Liable for rape? I think you are the liar.

    "Liable for rape? I think you are the liar." ---HtS

    HtS,
    Are you really going to argue that the jury found Trump liable of "only" sexual assault and not rape in the narrow, technical definition of rape in the New York penal code?

    Breaking down the verdict as jury finds Trump liable for sexual assault and defamation
    A New York jury found former President Trump liable for sexually abusing columnist E. Jean Carroll in the mid-90s and later defaming her.

    Judge clarifies: Yes, Trump was found to have raped E. Jean Carroll
    The jury's unanimous verdict in Carroll II was almost entirely in favor of Ms. Carroll. The only point on which Ms. Carroll did not prevail was whether she had proved that Mr. Trump had “raped” her within the narrow, technical meaning of a particular section of the New York Penal Law – a section that provides that the label “rape” as used in criminal prosecutions in New York applies only to vaginal penetration by a penis. Forcible, unconsented-to penetration of the vagina or of other bodily orifices by fingers, other body parts, or other articles or materials is not called “rape” under the New York Penal Law. It instead is labeled “sexual abuse.”1

    As is shown in the following notes, the definition of rape in the New York Penal Law is far narrower than the meaning of “rape” in common modern parlance, its definition in some dictionaries,2 in some federal and state criminal statutes,3 and elsewhere.4 The finding that Ms. Carroll failed to prove that she was “raped” within the meaning of the New York Penal Law does not mean that she failed to prove that Mr. Trump “raped” her as many people commonly understand the word “rape.” Indeed, as the evidence at trial recounted below makes clear, the jury found that Mr. Trump in fact did exactly that.

    Curt,

    Nuthin about that was legitimate. And, Trump was not found liable for rape.

    Period.
