Bragg Merchan

We have a MOST interesting problem in this New York case where Trump was found guilty on 34 counts concerning the falsified documents that were created in 2017, while President Trump was in office as President. Trump’s lawyers are NOT arguing that the Trump Organization checks the president signed were official duties. However, the prejudice of the prosecutor and the pretend acting judge have created a problem that may require the dismissal of the conviction.

In March 2024, Trump’s attorneys moved to limit the scope of evidence to exclude the president’s official acts. Acting judge Merchan denied the motion, claiming it was “untimely.” This questionable judge responded that he could rule on objections based on presidential immunity during the trial. In addition, this conflicted prosecutor, Bragg, presented prejudicial statements and evidence that were presented by the district attorney at trial. The Prosecution described an event in the Oval Office as “devastating” and introduced statements by the president and witness testimony about working for the president in the White House. None of this would be permitted under the Supreme Court ruling. This official-acts evidence should never have been put before the jury, and this quest to find Trump guilty by any means is starting to backfire. All of this is because, to convert a misdemeanor to a felon, they used the Federal Election of 2016, and that led to introducing even official acts in the White House.

The Supreme Court held that a president “may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers, and he is entitled, at a minimum, to a presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts.” Prosecutors would have to rebut the presumptive immunity for official acts before he could be charged for them.

Acting Judge Merchan has ordered that the sentencing of former President Donald Trump will be postponed from July 11th, which was timed for the Republican Convention to create as much chaos as possible, to September 18, 2024, at 10:00 AM “for the imposition of sentence, if such is still necessary, or other proceedings.” I think a first-semester law student would have to conclude that, at the very minimum, this will be a mistrial, and Constitutionally, it is doubtful that this prosecution is even valid.

Our computer has been showing all year that Sepetember would be a Panic Cycle, and we are looking at some major event unfolding then. It may be more related to politics in the United States than geopolitical matters.
