As we wait to hear Trump’s favorite judge’s decision on a filing by drumpf’s Junior Varsity legal team asking that his inconvient trial for stealing classified documents be delayed until after the 2024 election, MAGA maniac Judge Aileen Cannon has quietly changed the venue for his trial from bright blue Palm Beach County (where the crime occurred) to fiercely red Fort Pierce in Lee county, some seventy miles away in the very northern reaches of her district.
Guess a leopard doesn’t change its spots…
“Former President Donald Trump is set to get a very favorable jury pool for his upcoming trial for pilfering top-secret government documents.
The Daily Beast’s Jose Pagliery reports that Judge Aileen Canon’s decision to hold Trump’s trial at a satellite courthouse far away from West Palm Beach means that “Trump’s jurors are set to be drawn from the most brightly red corner of a vast court district, plucked from a community that leans heavily Republican—instead of the highly populous and more Democratic urban areas further south.”
Surprise, surprise the trial was relocated from Palm Beach county, which Joe Biden won with 60% of the vote to Fort Pierce’s Lee County which went for the Dotard by nearly the same margin, roughly 60 to 40%.
Nice Judge if you can buy her.
But why truck the whole carnival sideshow which this trial inevitably morph into, to a place that is an hour away from Mar-A-Lago?
“Paul Bernard, a defense attorney in Fort Pierce, tells Pagliery that he doesn’t believe Smith will be able to strike every Trump supporter during the jury selection process.
“With Trump’s trial down this way, he’s going to have a bunch of supporters—and they’re going to make their way onto the jury panel,” he said.“
Noy only will Trump likely get a trial date that is friendlier to his campaign, i.e. one that begins after his campaign to his dismantle what is left of American democracy, his good buddy and appointee Aileen Cannon is hard at work insuring that he will have a favorable jury.
What a country.
