Trump's Second Criminal Trial May Not Be in Florida

2/22/2024
New York Judge Juan Merchan has set Donald Trump's first criminal trial for March 25th. That trial is likely to conclude in early May. At the moment, Trump's second criminal trial is set for May 20th. But that case - his federal trial in Florida for unlawfully retaining classified documents, obstructing justice and violating our nation's espionage laws - is being presided over by Trump-appointed Judge Aileen Cannon. Judge Cannon has shown a willingness to cater to Trump, so she may end up cancelling the May 20 trial date in accordant with Trump's request. Glenn says some people might think this would be a win for Trump. But in reality, this could actually represent a positive development on the quest to hold Trump accountable for his crimes.

Many people are asking the question: "Can prosecutors really impanel fair and impartial juries to decide the many criminal cases against Donald Trump?" Glenn discusses the selection of the juries that have just ruled against him. Over the course of three trials; 3 juries (totaling 30 jurors) have unanimously found against Donald Trump and his namesake, the Trump Organization.

DA Fani Willis' Testimony in Misconduct Hearing Exposes Trump's Lies About Her

2/20/2024
Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis testified in court to refute the allegations leveled against her by the attorneys who represent Donald Trump and his co-defendants in the Georgia RICO case which was brought against them for trying to steal the 2020 election from the people of Georgia. Some critics say Willis' testimony was too loud, too aggressive, too strident, or too angry. But that is nonsense. DA Willis directly and forcefully refuted the lies the defendants told about her in an effort to distract attention away from the overwhelming evidence of their guilt. Glenn discusses the tactic often employed by defendants in criminal cases when the evidence against them is strong: attack the prosecutors.

SCOTUS: Jack Smith has One Week to Respond to Trump's Request For Stay in DC Case

2/15/2024
Donald Trump's attorneys have filed a brief asking the Supreme Court to put his DC federal trial on a slow track to nowhere. Trump is seeking a stay (or pause) in his prosecution for trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. But the Supreme Court seems to be stepping up the pace by asking Special Counsel Jack Smith to file his reply to Trump's request in only seven days. Glenn also discusses Trump's attempt to deceive the court by claiming in the filing that the judges decisions in the trial and appellate courts are a breach of precedent and historical norms.

Will the Supreme Court Grant Trump's Request to Pause his DC Trial?

2/14/2024
Donald Trump is asking the courts to make up something that does not exist in the law: absolute presidential immunity against being prosecuted for crimes committed while in office. Both the trial court judge and a three-judge appellate court panel ruled that there is no such thing as absolute presidential immunity. Trump has asked the United States Supreme Court to put a hold on his criminal case in DC rather than let it move in the direction of trial. Trump's suspected goal is to delay the case until after the 2024 presidential election in hopes of winning the White House and then ordering his Attorney General to dismiss the federal cases against him. Glenn discusses why the Supreme Court should neither grant the stay/pause of Trump's DC trial for attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election nor take the case of presidential immunity up on appeal.

Supreme Court Appears Poised to Keep Trump on Presidential Ballot

2/12/2024
Sadly, during the Supreme Court arguments on whether Donald Trump is disqualified from holding office under the 14th Amendment for engaging in insurrection, the Supreme Court justices put details over democracy. Glenn reviews the arguments in Donald Trump v. Norma Anderson (the case in which the Colorado Supreme Court disqualified Trump from the Colorado state ballot) and discusses how the justices got bogged down in the details and seemed to lose sight of the big picture: that the plain language of the Constitution disqualifies Trump from holding office.

The Supreme Court Should REFUSE to Review the Case of Trump's Immunity

2/9/2024
The DC federal circuit court of appeals has unanimously ruled that Trump is not immune from prosecution for his January 6th crimes. In their opinion - the court pointed out the Constitution expressly states that presidents can be criminally prosecuted EVEN IF they're first impeached. The Constitution also imposes a duty upon presidents to "faithfully execute the laws" of our nation. In other words - the very language of the Constitution makes clear that presidents ARE NOT immune from prosecution for crimes they committed while in office. Glenn discusses why the US Supreme Court has NO legitimate reason to accept Trump's immunity claim for review, which would have the effect of delaying Trump's trial, perhaps beyond the 2024 presidential election.

In a story line stranger then fiction, the US Supreme Court is set to decide if an insurrectionist can retake the reins of presidential power. On February 8th, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Donald Trump v. Norma Anderson. Who is Norma Anderson?

In a Federal Court Filing - Special Counsel Jack Smith Calls Out Trump's Lies

2/6/2024
Although Donald Trump's March 4th federal trial for trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election has been postponed; Glenn says not to worry - Trump's criminal trial dance card remains packed. His New York criminal case for election interference in the 2016 presidential election by falsifying business records is set to begin on March 25th. Glenn does a deep dive into all of trump's upcoming cases and the likely sequence of his FOUR criminal trials. The, he switches to Donald Trump's lies. Trump does it incessantly in the court of public opinion. But prosecutors don't normally respond in public to those lies, so when Trump lies about the evidence in his criminal cases - those lies tend to go unaddressed and uncorrected. But Special Counsel Jack Smith has now remedied that in a new court filing in Trump's federal prosecution in Florida. Glenn reviews some of what Jack Smith put in this new court filing in an attempt to, as the filing states, "set the record straight on the underlying facts that led to this prosecution."

Trump's CFO, Allen Weisselberg, to Plead Guilty to Perjury for Lying at Trump's NY Fraud Trial

2/5/2024
Donald Trump's longtime Chief Financial Officer, Allen Weisselberg - already a convicted felon for engaging in fraud at the Trump Organization - reportedly is in negotiations with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to plead guilty to perjury for lying when he testified at Trump's New York fraud trial. This new legal development likely factors into two other legal developments: Judge Engoron delaying his verdict in Trump's New York fraud trial and Judge Tanya Chutkan postponing Trump's federal case in DC for trying to overturn the 2020 presidential elections.

Judge Kaplan Tells E. Jean Carroll Jurors to Never Tell They Served on the Jury

1/31/2024
Before dismissing the jury at the conclusion of the E. Jean Carroll defamation trial and just after they awarded Ms. Carroll $83.3 million for Trump's incessant defamation - Judge Lewis Kaplan told the jurors that he recommends they tell NO ONE that they served on the Trump jury. Although Judge Kaplan's motivation was undoubtedly to protect the jurors against the danger posed by Trump and his supporters, it's institutional insanity to make everyone else alter their lives and their behavior rather than address the source of the danger - Donald Trump. Trump endangers everyone who is involved in holding him accountable for his crimes and his civil wrongs. This includes witnesses; judges and their staff; prosecutors and their family members; and jurors. Trump is on pretrial release in four felony cases, both state and federal. The law provides that if someone is on release in a felony case, and there is clear and convincing evidence that the defendant poses a danger to even one person in the community, that person should be detained pending trial. Yet instead of doing what the law provides, the institutions of government have decided that every single person involved in the endeavor of holding Trump accountable should alter their lives rather than neutralize the threat by detaining Trump pending trial. Glenn says let's hope the institutions of government - change course rather than continue to allow Trump to endanger jurors, witnesses, judges, and prosecutors.

Donald Trump Must Pay E. Jean Carroll $83 Million for Defamation

1/30/2024
A New York jury has issued its verdict in the second defamation case that E. Jean Carroll bought against Donald Trump: Trump must pay Ms. Carroll $83.3 million in compensatory and punitive damages. A year earlier, a jury awarded Ms. Carroll $5 million due to Trump defaming her on other occasions. Moreover, during closing arguments, Trump disrupted the proceedings by storming out when Ms. Carroll's lawyer told the jury that Trump acts like the rules don't apply to him. Of course, Trump's disruptive behavior directly and dramatically proved the exact point Ms. Carroll's attorney was arguing to the jury. Glenn says Donald Trump truly is the biggest loser when it comes to his court cases. He's lost both trials against E. Jean Carroll. He's lost his New York civil fraud trial, and we are simply awaiting Judge Engoron's decision regarding how much Trump will have to pay (or "disgorge"). And, when his namesake, The Trump Organization, was criminally convicted of a 15-year-long criminal scheme to defraud in the first degree, Trump essentially lost that case as well (albeit by proxy as he was not personally charged in that case).Trump fights every case in the court of public opinion. He lies and lies in a desperate attempt to deceive and grift from his gaggle of supporters. But the rules of evidence don't apply in the court of public opinion. However, the rules of evidence, the rules of procedure, and the rule of law all apply in court. And Trump has proven time and again that he can not win in a court of law. His unabated losses in court are strong predictors of how his criminal trials will play out. Once his criminal trials commence, Trump will be convicted over and over and over again.

Navarro Sentenced to 4 Months in Prison - Trump Violates Judge's Instructions While Testifying

1/29/2024
Today was not a particularly good day for justice. Although Peter Navarro was sentenced to four months in prison for contempt of Congress, the judge DID NOT order him to be taken into custody. This is reminiscent of Steve Bannon, who was also sentenced - back in October 2022 - to four months in prison for contempt of Congress, but has yet to to serve a single day of his sentence. Perhaps worst of all, Donald Trump took the stand today in his defamation trial in New York and, after Judge Kaplan told Trump he was prohibited from calling E. Jean Carroll a liar, Trump IMMEDIATELY called E. Jean Carroll a liar. Yet there was no sanction, no accountability, and no contempt finding.
