Did President Trump Receive A Fair Trial In New York?

Trump Judge Backstabs Him?

The federal judge overseeing the classified documents case against former President Donald Trump and two associates denied a request to dismiss some charges in the indictment on Monday. The defendants aimed to eliminate over half a dozen of the 41 counts, which accuse Trump of illegally retaining classified documents from his presidency and conspiring with his valet, Walt Nauta, and the property manager of Mar-a-Lago to hide these documents from the government.

The charges in question involved allegations of obstruction and making false statements. U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon stated in her ruling that the supposed shortcomings in the counts, although potentially causing some confusion, are allowed by law, relate to evidentiary issues not suitable for resolution at this stage, or do not necessitate dismissal if they are minor flaws, provided the jury receives proper instructions and the verdict forms clearly outline each defendant’s alleged actions.

Judge Cannon has also previously dismissed several other motions aiming to drop the case, including one that argued Trump was entitled to retain the documents under the Presidential Records Act, asserting they could be considered his personal files after his presidency.
