There may be a big wrench getting tossed into the system that nobody has discussed as of yet on the Trump trial front.
Former White House Counsel Ty Cobb believes that Fulton County DA Fani Willis has no shot of seeing this trial start in February, reported KULR8.
In fact, he does not see the case starting for at least two years, reported The Hill.
Cobb brings up something that I thought would happen with these other cases, but we have not yet seen.
He stated, “There’s no chance in my view that Fani Willis goes within two years,” predicting that there will be “motions galore” that will delay the start of this trial.
He added, “And if it takes her, you know, two years — I mean, heaven forbid that Trump wins the presidency — then there will be a fight to the Supreme Court over whether she can proceed against the sitting president during his term.
“That’s an issue that’s never been resolved.
“The federal prosecutors are not allowed to indict or prosecute the president during his term.
“But as to state court prosecutors, that issue has never been resolved and could delay things quite some time.”
Trump and the other 18 defendants are expected to surrender to the court by August 25, then the fun begins.
The only thing that I believe would stop Cobb’s prediction from coming true is the fact that Trump is unlikely to get a sympathetic judge, meaning I would not expect his motions to be successful if he gets a Democrat-appointed judge.
We have already seen in other cases how this has impacted things, so while Cobb would normally be right on the money; when it comes to Trump, nothing is predictable.
