Trump to Supremes: Do It Now!

Donald Trump

( – In what might be one of the most pivotal moments in America’s history, former President Donald Trump called on the United States Supreme Court to intervene before his July sentencing following his conviction on 34 felony charges last week in his New York City hush money trial.

Trump articulated his grievances on Truth Social, noting that his sentencing is inconveniently scheduled just days before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee.

During this event, the Republican Party is expected to officially nominate him for president, The Hill points out in a report.

In his post, Trump criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, the prosecutor in his case, and Judge Juan Merchan, who presided over the trial.

He expressed concerns about their influence on national outcomes, stating, “The United States Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!”

Trump’s conviction marks him as the first former U.S. president to be declared a felon, with the jury finding him guilty on all counts of falsifying business records to hide alleged affairs during his 2016 campaign.

Although the charges could potentially lead to imprisonment, such an outcome is rare for first-time offenders.

Bragg has refrained from stating whether his team will seek incarceration, preferring instead to let future court filings speak for themselves.

The sentencing is set for July 11, and Trump has announced plans to appeal the verdict, which would then be considered by a higher court in New York.

Concurrently, the U.S. Supreme Court is deliberating another case involving Trump.

This case pertains to his claims of immunity from prosecution concerning actions he took after the 2020 election in an attempt to challenge the results.

Should the Supreme Court, which currently has a conservative majority, rule in his favor, it could potentially affect several other criminal charges against him.

Regardless of the outcome, the Supreme Court’s decision may extend the timeline of Trump’s legal challenges past the upcoming November election.
