    Trump Reaches TOTAL DESPERATION as Prosecutors GO ALL IN

    enSeptember 17, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Donald Trump's Legal Battles: Chaotic and UncertainRecent developments in Donald Trump's legal battles include critical rulings, obstructive tactics, and potential delays, highlighting the chaos and uncertainty surrounding the cases.

      The ongoing legal battles involving Donald Trump continue to make headlines, with recent developments including Jack Smith's motion for a gag order against Trump in the Washington DC federal criminal case, critical rulings in the Georgia criminal Rico case, and Trump's lawsuit against the judge in the New York AG civil fraud case potentially delaying the trial. Trump and his team have faced criticism for their handling of these cases, with numerous screw-ups and attempts to obstruct the legal process. For instance, Trump failed to request a jury trial in the New York AG case and had their attempt to revive a previously sanctioned lawsuit denied. Additionally, new details have emerged about Jack Smith's subpoena to Twitter, where potentially damaging evidence was obtained. The legal landscape surrounding Trump's cases remains chaotic and uncertain, with potential implications for the trial dates and outcomes.

    • Trump's Legal Tactics Could Impact Jury SelectionTrump's efforts to disclose juror identities during ongoing legal proceedings could compromise the impartiality of the jury pool, according to the prosecution.

      During the ongoing legal proceedings against him, former President Donald Trump has been pushing for the public disclosure of names of individuals receiving threats, despite efforts by the prosecution to protect their identities. This tactic, according to the prosecution, is part of Trump's pattern of undermining the justice system and the impartiality of the jury pool. Trump's actions, as described in recently unsealed court filings, have been compared to a "carnival atmosphere" that could compromise the ability to select an impartial jury. The prosecution argues that Trump's statements are intended to sway potential jurors, making it difficult to ensure a fair trial. This is a consistent theme in Trump's legal battles, as seen in his Twitter filings earlier this year and in the recent filing regarding a gag order.

    • Prosecution argues Trump's statements pose risk to fair trialThe prosecution claims Trump's false election fraud claims and attacks on the justice system and potential witnesses pose a significant risk of prejudicing the jury pool and undermining the fairness of the trial.

      The prosecution in the ongoing criminal case against Donald Trump is arguing that his extrajudicial statements, including false claims of election fraud and attacks on the justice system and potential witnesses, pose a significant risk of prejudicing the jury pool and undermining the fairness of the trial. The prosecution cited Trump's actions after the 2020 election, including his disinformation campaign and intimidation of individuals who refuted his lies, as evidence of his pattern of behavior. The court has already redacted portions of the motion due to the identification of specific individuals, and the government plans to provide additional evidence of Trump's witness tampering and attacks on potential jurors. The prosecution is seeking limited orders from the judge to restrict Trump's extrajudicial statements to prevent further prejudice. The potential impact of Trump's statements was highlighted by the fact that in a previous trial, a jury requested assurances that the defendant would not contact them due to fear of retaliation.

    • Prosecution asks judge to limit Trump's comments on trialThe prosecution team requested the judge to limit Trump's comments on the trial to protect the jury from intimidation and tampering, and prevent him from influencing the jury pool.

      During a court hearing, the prosecution team requested the judge to limit or prevent outside statements by Donald Trump and his lawyers regarding witnesses, the trial, and jurors. The reason being is to protect the jury from intimidation and tampering, ensuring a fair trial. Previously, John Lauro, Trump's lawyer, was reprimanded for making extrajudicial comments about the case, and the court order effectively silenced him. The prosecution team argued that the same order should apply to Trump himself, given his history of making inflammatory statements against witnesses, the judicial process, and community members. The team also wanted the court's approval for jury selection and analysis to prevent Trump from influencing the jury pool. The judge has the power to enforce such orders, as seen when Lauro was gagged after being warned. Trump's response to the motion was to accuse the prosecutors of being deranged and incompetent, further fueling the heated rhetoric surrounding the case.

    • Trump's argument for Judge Cannon's recusal falls shortDespite Trump's claims, Judge Cannon is unlikely to be biased towards him due to past statements. The legal standard for demonstrating bias requires clear antipathy publicly discussed in a court hearing, which Trump does not meet.

      Former President Donald Trump's argument for recusal of Judge Timothy J. Cannon based on her past statements during sentencing hearings for January 6th insurrectionists falls short of the legal standard. Special Counsel Jack Smith pointed out that Trump is misinterpreting the law and cherry-picking context from the statements. The legal standard for demonstrating a judge's in-court statements creating bias against a party requires an absolute clear antipathy publicly discussed in a court hearing about an individual. Trump does not meet this standard, and Judge Cannon is unlikely to be biased towards him. The MAGA Republican Party's disregard for facts and the law further complicates the situation. This misinterpretation of the law and disregard for facts can lead to misunderstandings and potential miscarriages of justice.

    • The importance of impartiality in the judiciary and the challenges of recusalImpartiality is crucial in the judiciary, and recusal is not an easy process. Judges should be allowed to form their own opinions and engage with the world outside the courtroom.

      During the podcast, the discussion touched upon the importance of impartiality in the judiciary and the ongoing attempts by former President Trump to recuse judges presiding over his cases based on perceived bias. The speakers emphasized that the presumption of impartiality exists for a reason, and it's not easy to meet the standard for recusal. They also highlighted the importance of allowing judges to form their own opinions and make comments, as they are human beings and allowed to engage with the world outside the courtroom. The discussion also touched upon the acquittal of Ken Paxton, the Texas Attorney General, in which the evidence against him was clear but the MAGA Republicans in the senate chose to believe Trump's word over the evidence presented. The speakers expressed pride in the way the jury system works, despite its imperfections, and the importance of an evidence-based system.

    • Georgia RICO case: State and federal courts handle distinct aspectsThe Fulton County Superior Court case in Georgia, involving Mark Meadows and others, highlights the differences between state and federal courts: state courts focus on state law violations and federal courts deal with federal crimes and issues.

      The ongoing criminal RICO case in Georgia, involving Mark Meadows and others, is being handled in both state and federal courts due to jurisdiction over state law violations and potential federal issues. Judge Scott McAfee in Fulton County Superior Court has made significant decisions in the state case, denying attempts to sever defendants' cases and setting the framework for their trials. Meanwhile, Meadows continues to push for federal jurisdiction, arguing for the invocation of federal law. It's essential to understand the distinction between state and federal courts, as each handles different types of cases. State courts, like the one in Fulton County, focus on state law violations, while federal courts deal with federal crimes and issues. The case serves as an important reminder of the intricacies of the American legal system and the role of judges in upholding justice.

    • Judge Separates Cases of Three Defendants from Remaining 17Judge uncouples Steve Bannon, Kennessey Powell, and David Chesebro's cases from the other 17 defendants in the ongoing trial, allowing for separate trials in October 2023 and future dates due to logistical reasons.

      The judge in the ongoing trial involving 19 defendants, including Donald Trump, has decided to uncouple the cases of Steve Bannon, Kennessey Powell, and David Chesebro from the remaining 17 defendants. This means that only Chesebro and Powell will stand trial in October 2023, while the remaining defendants will be tried in separate groups in the future. The judge's decision was made due to logistical reasons, as trying 17 defendants with multiple lawyers and staff in one courtroom is not feasible. The prosecution and defense teams will need to come up with reasonable groupings for the upcoming trials. As for Donald Trump, it remains to be seen which group he will be placed in. The judge also denied requests for stays in the state court proceedings while parties look to move their cases to federal court.

    • Fani Willis's commitment to pursuing Trump casesDA Fani Willis is determined to try Trump and associates promptly, contrasting Trump's history of legal manipulation. Outcome of first trial impacts rest of cases, potentially leading to pleas or dismissals.

      The Fulton County District Attorney, Fani Willis, is committed to trying Donald Trump and his associates in the earliest possible date, regardless of potential conflicts with other cases. Her approach contrasts starkly with Trump's history of delaying and manipulating legal proceedings. The outcome of the first trial will significantly impact the rest of the cases, potentially leading to many plea agreements or dismissals. The importance of evidence and the functioning of the legal system as a whole were emphasized, and the potential consequences of losing this system were discussed.

    • Former White House Chief of Staff Meadows Faces Legal Challenges in Both State and Federal CourtsJudge denies Meadows' argument that his election interference actions were part of his job description and should be tried in federal court, citing unclear responsibilities and policy concerns

      Mark Meadows, a former White House chief of staff, is facing legal challenges in both state and federal courts regarding his role in election interference. However, his argument that his actions were part of his job description and therefore, he should be tried in federal court, was recently denied by a federal judge. The judge criticized Meadows for being unable to clearly define his responsibilities and found that the heart of the indictment against him was not part of his job description. Meadows has since appealed to the 11th Circuit, but the panel, which includes two former judges from the Southern District of Florida, is not favorable to him. The panel also asked an anonymous question about whether the statute allows a former federal officer to take their case to federal court based on a policy to prevent state interference with federal functions. The argument faces challenges as it's unclear if the policy extends to former federal officers.

    • Legal battle over election interference in Georgia may depend on federal removal jurisdictionThe 11th Circuit Court of Appeals is deciding whether they have jurisdiction over Mark Meadows' case regarding election interference in Georgia, potentially hinging on his former status as a federal officer and the present-tense provisions of federal removal statutes.

      The ongoing legal battle between Mark Meadows and Fulton County, Georgia, regarding the alleged interference in the state election process, could hinge on the interpretation of federal removal jurisdiction. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals is currently deciding whether they have jurisdiction over the case, and their decision may depend on whether Meadows, who is no longer a federal officer, falls under the present-tense provisions of federal removal statutes. The court is also considering whether to dismiss the case due to limited jurisdiction. Meanwhile, other related cases, such as Jeff Clark's hearing and the New York attorney general's civil fraud case against Donald Trump, continue to move forward. The outcome of these legal proceedings could significantly impact the ongoing investigations and potential consequences for those involved.

    • New York Attorney General's Case Against Trump DelayedThe New York attorney general's case against Donald Trump has been delayed due to a ruling in the appellate department, with only a hearing regarding specific transactions moving forward.

      The New York attorney general's civil fraud case against Donald Trump, which was supposed to start on October 2nd, has been delayed due to a ruling by the New York appellate department. This ruling stayed the entire proceeding except for a hearing before Judge Anguaron regarding specific transactions. The delay is a result of an emergency application made to Justice Friedman in the 1st department appellate division, who has the power to either stay the case or deny it outright. The rest of the case, including the summary judgment hearing, will still be heard by Judge Anguaron. This complex legal process, known as Article 78, is not well-known to the general public but is a significant aspect of New York's court system. The outcome of this case could have significant implications for the Trump organization and the ongoing investigations against it.

    • New York Appellate Judge Grants Partial Appeal in Trump Civil Fraud CaseJudge grants partial appeal for Trump to remove certain transactions from fraud case, Ivanka dismissed, final decision on transactions pending, expedited briefing and oral argument predicted, use of Article 78 for ongoing cases is rare and premature

      A recent ruling by a New York appellate judge has granted partial appeal in the civil fraud case against Donald Trump, allowing him to remove certain transactions from the case based on the statute of limitations. This ruling led to Ivanka Trump being dismissed from the case as well. The judge still needs to determine which transactions are in or out of the case and has the discretion to do so before the trial, scheduled for October 2nd. The Trump group is pushing for a faster decision but the judge is not obligated to expedite the process. The case is currently under review by a full merits panel of 5 judges, and the outcome is predicted to be expedited briefing and oral argument. The use of Article 78 to challenge a judge's decision is rare and typically used for administrative agency decisions, not for stopping a judge from making rulings in ongoing cases. The timing of the appeal is considered premature, and the parties should wait for the judge's ruling on summary judgment before appealing.

    • Bench trials vs jury trials: Judge's control over rulingsIn bench trials, judges have more control over rulings since they've seen evidence beforehand, but unexpected shifts can still occur.

      In a bench trial, unlike a jury trial, the judge has already seen all the evidence beforehand during the summary judgment phase, so concerns about last-minute rulings significantly impacting the trial dynamics do not apply. The judge has the ability to control the timing, evidence presentation, and ruling without a jury present. However, the speaker also shared examples from their own experience where a summary judgment decision was not made before the trial, causing unexpected shifts in case strategy. Despite these instances, the speaker believes it is less extraordinary for a judge to make rulings before a bench trial compared to a jury trial.

    • Unexpected legal developments impact casesUnexpected rulings and investigations can significantly alter legal proceedings, highlighting the importance of preparation and understanding of extensive powers investigators hold.

      In the legal world, unexpected events and rulings can significantly impact a case, requiring quick adaptation. This was evident in the case of Popak vs. an unnamed party, where a judge's ruling unexpectedly changed the nature of the case during trial. On the other hand, in the context of the ongoing investigation into former President Donald Trump's Twitter account, Special Counsel Jack Smith obtained a search warrant over a year ago due to concerns about potential evidence destruction and the intimidation factor of the subject. The recent unsealing of related documents provides new insights into the scope of the investigation, which includes the desire to access tweets, direct messages, drafts, and other information related to the account. These unexpected developments underscore the importance of being prepared for the unexpected in legal proceedings. Additionally, the case of Trump's Twitter investigation highlights the extensive powers investigators have to obtain information in the pursuit of justice.

    • Twitter ordered to keep quiet about search warrant for Trump's account, but resisted and faced sanctionsJudges often order documents sealed in criminal investigations to protect investigation's integrity, but Twitter's resistance led to a public dispute and prolonged the process

      Twitter was ordered by a judge to keep quiet about a search warrant related to former President Donald Trump, but Twitter resisted and faced sanctions. The judge was concerned about potential interference with an ongoing investigation and the possibility of evidence destruction or witness tampering by Trump. The judge ultimately required Twitter to turn over all requested documents and upheld the nondisclosure order. The documents included direct messages, and their content remains unknown. Sealing of documents in criminal investigations is common to protect the investigation's integrity, and the information is eventually made public once the concerns are addressed. The ongoing nature of investigations involving Trump means that sealed information often remains that way.

    • Transparency in public trials and the Georgia Rico caseDespite overwhelming evidence, political influence can hinder a transparent trial outcome, as seen in Ken Paxton's impeachment trial in Texas.

      Transparency is crucial in public trials, allowing the public to evaluate evidence and make their own impressions. The Georgia Rico state case being videotaped is an example of this principle. However, in the case of Ken Paxton's impeachment trial, despite overwhelming evidence of corruption, MAGA Republicans in the Texas Senate banded together to block a conviction. Paxton's relationship with his donor, Nate Paul, involved using the attorney general's office to help Paul avoid foreclosures in exchange for donations and employing Paxton's mistress. Key witnesses were Paxton's Republican friends and associates, and the documents supporting the allegations were clear. However, Paxton's lawyer invoked rhetoric to encourage Republicans to stand together, disregarding the evidence. The Texas House of Representatives impeached Paxton with bipartisan support, but the Republican-controlled Senate prevented a conviction. This incident highlights the importance of transparency and the potential for political influence in legal proceedings.

    Trump’s Criminal Cases COME DOWN to This…
    On a special weekend edition of the top-rated Legal AF podcast, Michael Popok is joined by Legal AF/MissTrial co-anchor Karen Friedman Agnifilo and Meidas legal contributor Dina Doll (substituting in for Ben Meiselas) to debate whether the MAGA Scotus immunity decision will gut the: (1) NY convictions of Trump; (2) the Mar a Lago espionage/obstruction case against Trump; and what the immunity decision means for the future of our constitutional republic and the checks and balances on what was once 3 co equal branches of government, in the hands of an unscrupulous future president hell-bent on crimes and destruction, and so much more at the intersection of law and politics.
