Trump Pushes Supreme Court To Act Prior To July Sentencing

via The Hill

Former President Donald Trump is awaiting sentencing following his conviction on 34 felony counts in the New York hush money trial.

Trump called on the Supreme Court to intervene, criticizing the judge and District Attorney involved.

It is unfair that Judge Juan Merchan and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “will make a decision which will determine the future of our Nation.”

“The United States Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!” Trump wrote.

The trial outcome may impact Trump’s pending cases, with a potential appeal and Supreme Court involvement.

His legal team has raised concerns about the trial’s fairness and gag orders.

“The gag orders, the unconstitutionality. I mean, what is more Colombia? Russia? What is more third world?” Trump attorney Alina Habba said. “This is why we have people pouring into our country, running for freedom. And now we’re gonna be like that. You know, we are that. It’s disgusting.”

“What happened in court with the gag order and the anger that you’re seeing from these judges; it’s very concerning for me,” Habba said.

The hush money case’s verdict contrasts with ongoing legal battles and the debate over presidential immunity, potentially influencing future prosecutions.
