Hush money judge questions social media post teasing Trump verdict

New York judge Juan Merchan, the man overseeing Donald Trump's case regarding hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, is raising major concerns about his case that has America questioning whether it was really on the level or not.

On June 7, 2024, Merchan "questioned attorneys in the case about a social media post that allegedly came from a family member of one of the jurors, which predicted former President Donald Trump's guilty verdict."

Trump was convicted on all 34 felony counts that he was facing in the case.

The decision came about after the jury "unanimously agreed that he had falsified business records to hide a payment to a former porn star."

In a case this high-profile, there were bound to be some controversies, and Merchan's courtroom experienced them in full.

The first issue was the lack of evidence, which has led to some reports circulating that Merchan actually told the jury that they didn't need actual evidence to convict Trump, although some outlets have refuted that report.

The second issue was the fact that both star witnesses for the prosecution are known to have a hard time telling the truth.

Stormy Daniels has flip-flopped multiple times regarding her allegations against Trump, and Michael Cohen, Trump's former "fixer," was exposed as being completely dishonest as well.

Despite these things, Trump was still found guilty on every single felony count he was facing.

Merchan wrote a letter to attorneys on both sides about a controversial social media post that claimed to know the jury's decision before it was made public.

"My cousin is a juror and said Trump is getting convicted," the letter said the post read. "Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!"

The post, made by a "Michael Anderson," has since been deleted. Trump officials are currently investigating the incident.

Do you think this will have any impact on Trump's sentencing, or will liberals simply sweep it under the rug?
