Donald Trump is looking for some help, as are members of Congress.
Trump, as well as many members of Congress, believe the federal cases against him are nothing more than election interference.
As such, they are now pressing the Supreme Court to intervene.
I have already seen quite a few legal opinions that at some point, all of these cases will wind up before the Supreme Court.
Honestly, that is not exactly an epiphany when you look at the lack of precedent and the impact these cases will have on the 2024 election.
Ironically, Democrats are also making a plea to the court, but for different reasons.
Democrats want Trump's trials to be televised, which I actually think is a good idea. Now, I don't know about you, but I sure do not want secondhand information during this trial.
A letter sent by Democrats on this matter stated, "As the policymaking body for the federal courts, the Judicial Conference has historically supported increased transparency and public access to the courts' activities.
"Given the historic nature of the charges brought forth in these cases, it is hard to imagine a more powerful circumstance for televised proceedings.
"If the public is to fully accept the outcome, it will be vitally important for it to witness, as directly as possible, how the trials are conducted, the strength of the evidence adduced, and the credibility of witnesses."
Trump has also pleaded with the court to take action, writing on Truth Social, "Resources that would have gone into Ads and Rallies, will now have to be spent fighting these Radical Left Thugs in numerous courts throughout the Country.
"I am leading in all Polls, including against Crooked Joe, but this is not a level playing field. It is Election Interference, & the Supreme Court must intercede. MAGA!"
From the reports I have seen, Trump's campaign is pretty much running on fumes, as most of the money has gone to pay legal fees, and this has really not even started yet.
Once these trials kick in, Trump could possibly accumulate bills in the hundreds of millions. If he loses the second E. Jean Carroll case as well as the case by Letitia James, Trump could be looking at somewhere between $500 million and $1 billion in legal fees and penalties.
There is no way his campaign will be able to cover those amounts, so he will have to start digging into his own pocket.
