After Supreme Court Ruling, Trump Demands Action

The New York Times reported that the legal team of former President Donald Trump sent a letter on Monday, requesting authorization from acting Justice Juan Merchan to present a motion to reverse the guilty decision in the criminal case in New York.

The Supreme Court sent the letter shortly after its decision on Trump’s claim for presidential immunity. The Supreme Court, by a vote of 6-3, decided that presidents have no immunity for unofficial acts and complete immunity for official acts.

“We cannot use the evidence for those acts.”

The lower courts will decide what qualifies as an official act because the Supreme Court did not define it.

Trump posted a statement on Truth Social after the decision, saying, “HUGE WIN FOR OUR CONSTITUTION AND DEMOCRACY.” I AM GLAD TO BE AMERICAN!”

The New York criminal case resulted in Trump’s conviction on all 34 felony counts of manipulating company records. The purportedly unlawful deeds transpired amid Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. We anticipate that Merchan will impose a sentence in this case on July 11. Trump may spend four years behind bars.

Trump’s legal team argued in earlier court filings that his administration should have ignored several pieces of evidence used in the New York trial, such as his social media statements against his former lawyer Michael Cohen.

Before making any court documents, Merchan instituted a regulation requiring the defense and prosecution to send a one-page letter explaining their positions. Merchan said the policy made sure he wouldn’t get overwhelmed with paperwork.

If Merchan permits Trump’s team to file the motion, sending it in would probably postpone sentencing. Since there is no longer a deadline for filing post-trial motions, it is uncertain if Merchan will comply.

We anticipate making the letter public on Tuesday. The office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) will have a chance to reply to the request.

Trump’s lawyer, Will Scharf, told CNN that the current decision by the Supreme Court “certainly” affects the New York case. He contended that the prosecution’s case against Trump included a “significant number of official acts of the administration” as supporting documentation.

Scharf told the news site, “The Supreme Court made quite explicit that evidence of those acts cannot be utilized to try fundamentally private acts,” meaning acts that are presumptively free from prosecution and come under the president’s official responsibilities.

“We demand, at the very least, a fresh trial where those immune acts will not enter into evidence, as the Supreme Court directed today,” Scharf continued.

  1. Working from home, I earn $165 per hour. When my neighbor told me she was now making an average of $95, I was very astonished, but now (ubd-83) I understand how it works. I now have a great deal of freedom thanks to becoming my own employer.

    I carry out the action>>> https://xne.us/zqb

  2. The crime that Bragg brought against Trump should have been a misdemeanor. That is the whole problem. The parties in his loan agreed to the terms. There is no crime.

  3. There is no justice in Washington DC and New Yorks bias Democrat court systems that is why they charged President Trump in these courts of political bias to start with it was a set up from beginning to end the courts have shown up hey are corupt as the Biden regime and they work for the Democrats that they donated to and family members work for. How many Democrats have campaigned in these corupt court cases? When your justice systems are not fair and don’t rule only by laws that are on the books and constitution but instead are ruling by their politics it is not a equal or fair justice and we have seen corupt judges doing this very thing in Democrat ran judicial systems where a double standard of laws are being applied differently depending on your politics or religious beliefs. If rule of law is distorted by these traitors there is no rule of law anymore!

  4. The first thing legal Americans had better learn.
    No matter how many laws or things they hammer down on us while catering to the world with what is not theirs.
    Americans are free people It’s up to us if we abide by the demons who are dead set on killing us while stealing from us. What law Only white people are made to obey this law . And those whose ancestors didn’t fight and die to get rid of King George are now killing the ancestors of those whose people got those freedoms with their blood even you enjoy.
    Well “” Whity “”how say you ?
