Trump calls upon Supreme Court to quickly take action

Former President Donald Trump has called upon the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court to take action. 

Trump, according to The Hill, wants the justices to review and reverse the guilty verdict that was recently imposed on him in the so-called hush-money case.

The former president is far from the only person calling upon the Supreme Court to step in for the good of the country.

Whether the justices will do so remains to be seen.

"Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!"

Trump called upon the justices of the Supreme Court to take action in a message that he posted to his Truth Social account on Sunday, a few days after the guilty verdict.

The former president began by taking issue with the fact that sentencing in the case is "conveniently" set for four days before the Republican National Convention, at which he will be named the Republican Party's presidential nominee.

From here, the former president targeted the prosecutor who brought the case and the judge who oversaw it.

He wrote, "A Radical Left Soros backed D.A., who ran on a platform of 'I will get Trump,' reporting to an 'Acting' Local Judge, appointed by the Democrats, who is HIGHLY CONFLICTED, will make a decision which will determine the future of our Nation?"

Then, Trump concluded, "The United States Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!"

Will it?

There is certainly a possibility that, at some point, the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case. But, it is no guarantee.

According to legal experts, the Supreme Court, at the moment, is not able to just step in, and Trump's lawyers are not allowed to simply bring the case to the top court. Various things would have to happen before they could do so, including the sentencing phase of the case and state-level appeals.

Some legal experts believe that this process could be fast-tracking in such a way that the Supreme Court would be able to hear the case before the 2024 election. Many even argue that this must happen to prevent the scenario where Trump loses the election because of a guilty verdict that gets overturned after the election - something that could seriously hurt the country.

One final thing that ought to be noted is that the Supreme Court will be under no obligation to actually take the case if the case reaches that level. Trump's lawyers would have to file a writ of certiorari, and it would be up to the justices' discretion about whether or not to take the case. The vast majority of such writs do get turned down.

The question right now is how Trump's lawyers are going to proceed. This remains to be seen.
