The mistrial should have been granted. On top of everything else, it was a bigger mess today than previous days, and they were pretty bad. Just doesn't seem to be a courtroom in America.


George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley accused the judge in former President Donald Trump’s trial of losing control of the courtroom.
Porn star Stormy Daniels testified Tuesday in the trial regarding a $130,000 payout to keep her quiet about an alleged affair before the 2016 election. Trump’s attorney’s pushed for a mistrial by alleging that she brought up information irrelevant to the case, which New York Judge Juan Merchan dismissed.
“The problem with what the judge has done here is that this is an entirely unnecessary witness. It is uncontested that there is a NDA. Whether what happened in their relationship, if there was one, is immaterial to how those payments were denoted by the Trump campaign,” Turley told “America Reports” co-hosts John Roberts and Gillian Turner. “So the court had the opportunity, repeatedly to say, we’re not going to take this courtroom through details of this relationship. If you want to establish a relationship occurred, do so, establish the dates. But likely those facts could’ve been stipulated.”
“So, the prosecutors wanted to get salacious details out and this is a form of punishment,” Turley continued. “They’re trying to use a witness for punitive purposes, and in my view, political purposes, and this is what happens, and it happened because the judge lost control of his courtroom.”

WATCH:




Turley previously said during an April 30 Fox News appearance that Merchan may have erred by allowing prosecutors, led by former Biden administration official Michael Colangelo, to claim Trump was involved in violating federal election laws.
“It will be hard to correct that,” Turley said. “The judge can try to correct some of this in his instructions, but at this point it would be very hard to do it. For example, the judge has allowed this jury to hear over and over again that there were election violations at the base of this case suggesting that Trump committed election violations. There is no evidence of that. There is no evidence of a crime.”

While on YouTube this afternoon an item popped up in recommendations about the trial that I couldn't resist viewing even though it was from CNN.

Even they seem to indicate her appearance was pretty much of a disaster, and at end tried to downplay it.

turley merely parrots what his faux niwz handlers tell him.

There was no "loss of control"
 
One of the first things you learn in Criminal Law class in law school is that the prosecutor may not present evidence that merely makes the defendant look like a bad person. The evidence must be relevant to the specific crime for which the defendant has been indicted.

Today's testimony was so far off the reservation the judge can no longer even pretend to be presiding over a legitimate criminal trials.

After this conviction is overturned on appeal, as it surely will be, I hope the New York State Bar disbars the motherfucker. He is a disgrace to the profession.

Trump shouldn't have paid off a hooker he fucked. That way you wouldn't have shit to say about it.
 
you children cannot refute anything I say so you always just go for the personal attacks.

It makes you look weak.

Because there is nothing to refute little child that is why you appear foolish.

Turley statements remain unchallenged because you are busy spinning evasive bullshit.
 
As Will Munny would say, "Well, if you don't want to be punished in court, don't do things that get you in court."

Nothing worthwhile to even suggest 'mistrial', other than what Turley's handlers told him what to tell the audience.

Is Turley part of this trial? Does his opinion matter?
 
Except it. I was 100% correct in the last post.

You and your projection game doesn't work, you loser.
Fume is floundering, trolling and baiting.

All futiley.

And the poor sap can’t even see it.

Meanwhile, the topic hasn’t changed. The antics of Merchan remain on full display.
 
What testimony did Daniel's give that was related to the actual charges at hand? None. This clown show just becomes more disgraceful by the day.
She said under oath her and trump had a sexual interaction. You and I both know trump isnt going to take the stand to deny that under oath. The prosecution is building the case, dipshit.

Again, how is that relevant to the charges of the case? It isn't, this clown show gets more disgraceful by the day. Atvleast now it is guaranteed to be overturned on appeal.
