Guilty on All 34 Counts

 

Updated with more reactions

The jury has returned guilty verdicts on all 34 counts against former President Donald Trump.

Judge Marchan has set Donald Trump’s sentencing for July 11. The GOP convention is set for July 15 to 18.

Trump reacts:

Reactions on X:

Clay Travis – “Trump is guilty in business records case. In related news, congrats to Donald Trump on his election as the 47th President of the United States.”

Ben Shapiro – “An absolute travesty — and, in all likelihood, a massive Constitutional mess.”

Josh Kraushaar – “Political impact of today’s verdict, per today’s NPR/Marist poll:

If Donald Trump is found guilty in the hush money trial in New York, are you…” more likely to vote for him 15%, less likely to vote for him 17%,  no difference 67%.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R – OH04) “The verdict is a travesty of justice.

“The Manhattan kangaroo court shows what happens when our justice system is weaponized by partisan prosecutors in front of a biased judge with an unfair process, designed to keep President Trump off the campaign trail and avoid bringing attention to President Biden’s failing radical policies. Americans see through Democrats’ lawfare tactics and know President Trump will be vindicated on appeal.”

Ann Coulter – “These idiot liberals may have just gotten Trump elected.”

Jonathan Turley – “I obviously disagree with this verdict as do many others. I believe that the case will be reversed eventually either in the state or federal systems. However, this was the worst expectation for a trial in Manhattan. I am saddened by the result more for the New York legal system than the former president. I had hoped that the jurors might redeem the integrity of a system that has been used for political purposes.”

    This is probably the best result for Trump.   To extend a quote from the Wall Street Journal, Trump is only one more conviction away from winning the White House.

    Now for the sentencing.   Probation with travel restrictions?    Make sure he can’t campaign.

    I guess I’m not surprised.   Imagine being a “not guilty” juror.   You could never show your face in NYC again

    In the sentencing, the use of capital punishment in New York will be reinstated.

    What a travesty. Our legal system is shot. Can’t wait to hear what FJB has to say.

    Something about “I trust the jurors of NYC to have delivered a fair and just verdict.” Thereby sidelining any criticism of the verdict. Or attempting to.

    Wow! All 34 counts?!

    …what did he do? All I’ve been hearing is that the case was made up out of thin air. Guess not and I was listening to/reading the wrong stuff. Well, then… our Democracy is safe!

    Chris Plante said a NYTimes writer had threatened that any juror responsible for a hung jury would pay a price. Plante named Kenneth P. Vogel(sp?) as the one issuing the threat.

    The left has always counted on “us” to respect the law.  It is a big mistake to show us that the law doesn’t matter.

    Can the appeals start prior to sentencing?

    I’m curious to see how this affects the presidential polls.  My suspicion is that it will improve Trump’s numbers.

    See Josh Kraushaar above: So far, it’s a wash.

    Gonna’ be awkward when he needs to talk to his probation officer every time he leaves on Air Force One for a state visit.

    Needs to announce his cabinet now and get them on the road as surrogates. Get the appeal gears moving immediately.

    Well, the 34 counts were all structured identically, with the only difference being the date of a payment. So any verdict on one of them would almost inevitably be replicated through all 34.

    The question “what did he do?” is the correct question. Because of the nature of the instructions from the judge, we (nor Mr. Trump) really knows of what Mr. Trump has been convicted. The judge told the jurors each of them could make up their own set of charges on which to convict him.

    You think his numbers would be lower if he had been acquitted?
