Jonathan Turley: Cases Against Trump are Imploding

There are a lot of talking heads on the news discussing the cases against Donald Trump, but most of them are giving a slanted opinion.

One of the few people on air that I actually respect on this front is Jonathan Turley, who testified during Trump’s impeachment hearing, then became a Fox News contributor.

Turley recently penned a piece on Fox News discussing how the cases against Trump, especially the ballot cases, are imploding.

Cards Falling Right

If you read our reports regularly, you know that I believe that most of the cases against Donald Trump are pretty weak.

Among the weakest are the ballot cases, where even though they have gone through some lower-level courts and Trump has lost, ultimately, those rulings are likely to be overturned by the Supreme Court.

Those cases, however, are not the only ones in jeopardy these days.

Very damning for Democrats is the fact that the entire court seemed to be leaning toward overturning the Colorado ballot case, as even Biden-appointed Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson appeared to be leaning toward allowing Trump to stay on the ballot.

The worst possible case for Democrats is a unanimous decision, as it will prove they have politicized the issue and were knowingly lying to the American people.

The Georgia case brought by Fulton County DA Fani Willis is also in big trouble after Trump’s co-defendant, Michael Roman, made salacious allegations against Willis, which turned out to be true.

On this front, Turley wrote, “That allegation, if true, could make the continuation of Willis and Wade in the case untenable. Various defendants being prosecuted in Georgia are accused of false statements and filings in court.

“Of course, the removal of Willis and Wade will not necessarily end the case, but it will present logistical and optical problems for the office.”

If Willis is removed from the case, her replacement would have to decide if they wanted to move forward with the case.

Even if the decision was to move forward, there would likely be significant delays, pushing the case back past the general election, which is Trump’s ultimate goal in the first place.

Turley concluded the same thing in his op-ed, concluding, “However, at this rate, Trump may be counting less on vindication than attrition.”

I have stated repeatedly that if Trump wins and these cases are still on the docket, the incoming AG would likely drop the charges, opening up Trump to another possible impeachment if Democrats get control of the House.

Having said that, as Turley noted in his article, everyone may just throw in the towel because, at this point, the American people on both sides are completely exhausted and just want to move on.
