Trump Trial Comes To An Explosive And Controversial Close

Alvin Bragg, the district attorney for New York, accused Trump of 34 counts of fabricating business documents in an effort to hide a fully legitimate non-disclosure agreement with adult film actress Stormy Daniels. As part of the radical left’s efforts to imprison Trump and keep him from taking office, Bragg managed to manipulate the law to make the alleged violation a felony. Normally, the charges would be for a misdemeanor that would result in a fine (just ask Hillary Clinton).

Though legal experts have noted that Bragg’s case collapsed so catastrophically that an impartial jury would have found him not guilty, it has long appeared likely that the best Trump could expect was a hung jury. Needless to say, the jury’s bias has been clear from the start. And then came the explosive verdict on Wednesday afternoon – guilty on all charges. It didn’t take long for the jury to come to this explosive conclusion.

Although the public has little access to the jury’s private discussions, Americans eagerly awaited the verdict nationwide. Merchan told the jury that, like in other criminal trials, the prosecution’s burden of proof is to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt and asked them to leave aside any personal views or beliefs while they deliberated the case. He also gave the jury instructions not to draw any conclusions about Trump’s lack of testimony.

“Trump is not guilty. He did not break any laws, and the district attorney’s burden of proof has not been satisfied.” Todd Blanche, Trump’s attorney, succinctly informed the jury.

The Washington Post claims that Merchan will decide Trump’s penalty now that he’s been convicted.

While jail or prison are improbable, alternatives like home confinement or probation would provide administrative difficulties as well as possible political issues, according to the former prosecutors. If Trump were to receive a probationary sentence, he would need to get approval from a probation officer before traveling outside of the state for any reason, including fundraisers and campaign rallies. The experts indicated that if Trump chose to serve his house confinement at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, New York officials would probably have to cooperate with their Florida counterparts to make accommodations.”
