Trump Attends Probation Hearing Ahead of Sentencing Next Month

President Donald Trump attended a digital pre-sentencing hearing on Monday.

The hearing was part of Trump’s bogus “hush money” case.

A probation officer collected information for the judge to consult when he decides Trump’s punishment on July 11.

Trump is facing up to four years in prison after being found guilty of “falsifying business records” in May.

It’s widely expected that the Democrat judge, Juan Merchan, will throw the book at Trump for the politically motivated conviction.

The Monday interview lasted about half an hour.

The legally required, seemingly routine hearing adds another layer of persecution for Trump.

Democrats have sought to smear the 45th president as an ordinary “convicted felon” rather than a political prisoner, as many view him.

The peculiar arrangements of Trump’s interview served as a reminder of how far outside the norm Trump’s prosecution really is.

Having Trump attend the hearing in person, like defendants typically do in New York, would have created logistical difficulties that the court chose to avoid.

Trump was instead permitted by Judge Merchan to attend the hearing remotely from Mar-A-Lago.

Trump’s lawyer, Todd Blanche, was also present.

However, Trump and his lawyer would have been asked routine questions about topics like employment, criminal history, and substance abuse.

It is unlikely the interview yielded any new information, given that Trump is among the most famous people on Earth.

On the other hand, the hearing serves an important narrative purpose for those looking to legitimize an unprecedented abuse of the American justice system.

A pointless pre-sentencing hearing helps drive home the message that Trump is not “above the law.”

Democrats and their corporate media allies continue to claim Trump is being treated just like any other “criminal.”

Obviously, there is nothing at all ordinary about this case.

The unprecedented case involves an American president and major presidential candidate facing possible jail at the hands of his political rivals.

While many would say it’s ridiculous that Trump even sat through this sham hearing, the unusual arrangements have led to predictable squealing from those who still believe Trump is somehow being treated leniently.

New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams roundly rejected the claim that the case is politically motivated.

“Trump has not been given any special treatment,” Ivette Dávila-Richards, a deputy press secretary for Adams, said.

“He is being treated as any defendant convicted of a crime.

“It’s just since he’s so high-profile, everyone is making it bigger than what it is.”

However, if this case really is routine, then it exposes issues with the justice system.

Trump is to be sentenced just a few days before the Republican National Convention next month.
