Jonathan Turley: Trump Will Ultimately Prevail in Appeals Process

Legal scholar Professor Jonathan Turley has asserted that, while President Donald Trump is currently facing uncertainty in the near term from the Democrats’ lawfare attacks, he will ultimately prevail in the appeals process.

Manhattan’s Democrat District Attorney Alvin Bragg was remarkably quick to do an endzone dance in the wake of Trump being convicted on 34 felony charges he brought against him.

But as many have pointed out, George Soros-funded Bragg may want to hold off on too much celebration.

There’s a strong chance that Trump will ultimately beat the charges, according to legal experts.

According to The Hill, Turley, a professor at George Washington University Law School, laid out why he believes Bragg’s convictions will not stand the test of time in the appeals courts.

He wrote a piece for the outlet titled, “Bragg’s thrill kill in Manhattan could prove short-lived on appeal.”

Turley held nothing back in his assessment of the outcome of the case.

He noted that while the media and Bragg, and Democrats of course, celebrated the “thrill kill” aspect of finally “getting Trump,” such feelings could be short-lived.

“The celebrants would be wise to think twice before mounting this trophy kill on the political wall,” Turley wrote.

“The Trump trial is a target-rich environment for an appeal, with multiple layers of reversible error, in my view.”

While many, including Trump, blamed the heavily Democrat-leaning jury for the outcome of the verdict, Turley believes it’s much deeper than that.

“I am less convinced by suggestions that the case could be challenged on the inability of Trump receiving a fair trial in a district that voted roughly 90 percent against him,” Turley wrote.

“The problem was not the jury, but the prosecutors and the judge.”

Turley then divided the problems with the case, in his opinion, into four groups.

First on the list is the judge, who Turley believes was “handpicked” for the case.

Judge Juan Merchan’s obviously political leanings, including previous donations to President Joe Biden, have been a source of controversy.

Turley also argued, like many others, that the charges were weak, to say the least.

The DOJ previously refused to prosecute Trump on the charges.

Turley said Bragg intentionally twisted the charges and tried them at a state level.

The legal scholar also said “Judge Merchan allowed a torrent of immaterial and prejudicial evidence to be introduced into the trial by the prosecution,” and was heavily one-sided in what he allowed as far as evidence was concerned.

Finally, Turley wrote that the bizarre and unheard-of jury instructions pretty much ruled out the possibility of a hung jury.

Turley believes, and many hope he’s right that the appeals process will see all of this and reverse every charge.
