    It will ALL be overturned on appeal.... the plan is to get the word "convicted" stuck to Trump name... so you and your ilk can keep screaming that until the election in this politically motivated fake trial.. only after the election will Trump name will cleared in a appeal court...

    From one of the sleaziest sleaze bags in the Senate... Harry Reid: “I Lied About Romney, But He Didn’t Win, Did He?” Same here...
    The Democrat battle cry..... "the end justifies the means"

    Strange there is a story that Cohen was having the affair... not Trump

    A lot of people are going to look really stupid if the evidence reveals that it was actually Stormy Daniels
    who was extorting Trump, and not Trump trying to buy her silence - as explicitly suggested by Michael Avenatti
    It will be especially interesting if the evidence reveals Michael Cohen and Stormy were having a relationship, as journalists have alleged.

    We see that you’ve bought into all of trump's whiny excuses to distract from his crimes.
    In maga’s world, everyone is corrupt and trying to get trump, but trump's attempts to overturn the election and incite an insurrection to keep himself in power are nothing to fret about.

    It is an accusation, not a fact.

    You haven't proven anything you are claiming are facts or even right. What's to prove wrong, your grasping for straws like the Trump defense team.

    Why Is Trump Barred From Discussing Cohen and Daniels?

    'Former President Donald Trump starts his trial on Monday forbidden to speak publicly about the witnesses against him in a case some experts have called weak and politically motivated. But the witnesses are not forbidden from speaking about Trump. Indeed, one of the witnesses in the case, former Trump fixer Michael Cohen, is today in the full-time Trump-bashing business and talks about Trump all the time. Cohen does his talking on MSNBC and other media outlets, as well as his own podcast. Cohen’s motive in speaking about Trump is no secret. He titled his book about Trump Revenge, which, no matter what Cohen might say, clearly referred to Cohen’s deep desire for revenge against his former employer.'

    'So Cohen is in the news daily trashing Trump. And yet Trump is forbidden by Judge Juan Merchan’s gag order from saying a word about Cohen. And when Trump did say a word about Cohen, in a post on Truth Social, the former president’s social network, some called for Trump to be jailed. It is a surpassingly weird situation.'

    Things claimed to have violated the gag order

    'on Truth Social, in which Trump posted a link to an April 2023 article by former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy that appeared in National Review. The headline of the article was “No, Cohen’s Guilty Plea Does Not Prove Trump Committed Campaign-Finance Crimes,” and the subheadline was “Unpacking a weak argument for Alvin Bragg’s weak case against the former president.” The story was legal analysis, pure and simple — persuasive legal analysis, at that — and yet Merchan has forbidden Trump from citing it and has threatened Trump with fines or even jail for pointing it out.'

    Judge Tweezed Eyebrows is insane with Trump hatred, and should have recused himself.

    'Another example of an alleged Trump gag order violation was his reposting of a New York Post column by George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. The headline was, “A serial perjurer will try to prove an old misdemeanor against Trump in an embarrassment for the New York legal system.” The “serial perjurer” referred to Cohen — unfortunately for Cohen, that’s an accurate description — and Turley wrote that Bragg’s prosecutors have used Cohen “to convert a dead state misdemeanor into a felony based on an alleged federal election crime that was rejected by the Justice Department,” which is also accurate.'

    This corrupt Judge, crooked prosecutors and kangaroo court are violating Trumps first amendment rights.

    There is no "first amendment right" to intimidate witnesses in a criminal case. You've been lied to. The corrupt idiots feeding you these lines are crooked.

    only 2 pages so far on this supposedly HISTORICAL case but we got 4 pages already on the Melania being cheated on thread.
    This just goes to show people do not give ONE FLYING CRAP about Trump's trials and it won't take one single vote from him, just will help him more.
    I can't wait to see them wallow in the consequences of their own actions!

    In fact, witness intimidation is a federal crime, a felony crime, if memory serves me correctly.

    who "intimidated witnesses in a criminal case"? Who threatened anyone..... Trump spoke the truth, he didn't say anything not publicly confirmable.

    The only thing left out was the FBI had one of the witnesses pegged as a Russian agent....

    So the crime that he was trying to cover up was election interference. Ha! And someone told me Bragg wasn't stupid.

    Bragg is a state prosecutor charging a federal election interference?... Trump was not charged with election interference, a federal crime...

    Here is the indictment

    “No politician wants bad press," Colangelo said. “But the evidence at trial will show that this was not spin or communication strategy. This was a planned, coordinated, long-running conspiracy to influence the 2016 election, to help Donald Trump get elected through illegal expenditures to silence people who had something bad to say about his behavior.” He added: “It was election fraud, pure and simple.”

    Conspiracy to commit election fraud I guess. It's all incredibly dubious if not downright bogus. It seems like he wants to confuse the jury. Completely nonsensical opening statement.

    It made absolute sense to me. But then again, I value education.

    He's the reason why Trump can't sleep at night due to his own dirty deeds. He's the reason why Trump's sleeping and farting in court everyday. he's one of victim Donnie's worse nightmares and why he's ******** his pants skeered.

    I think he was the number 3 man in the Biden just us department. I'm certainly not disagreeing with you.
