Judge Merchan Gives Insane and Unconstitutional Jury Instructions To “Get Trump”

Constitutional law attorney and Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley is covering the jury instructions in the so-called “Hush Money” case against Trump this morning and some stunning details are emerging.

Tim Pool provides a nice summary of the essence of what the Judge just told the Jury:

“You can all disagree on if the crime was committed so long as you agree trump committed any crime, lock him up”


But now let’s go direct to Turley live-tweeting from the Courtroom where he explains in more detail:

Fox News sums it up with this:

Ok, so basically the jury can split 4-4-4 on key facts and details about what crime was committed, and that doesn’t matter as long as they all basically agree “Orange Man Bad” and then it will be treated as a unanimous decision.

This is insane!!!

Not only that, but many believe it to be wildly unconstitutional:

Now ask yourself….why would a Judge do something so obviously erroneous?

Because they don’t care what happens long-term.

They just need to “Get Trump” before November.

If they can tie him up, keep him off the campaign trail, maybe even put him in jail, they don’t care if the Supreme Court reverses this in 2025, they will have accomplished all they ever set out to do.

Now does it make sense?

Fox News reports more on what the jury will need to find if they want a guilty verdict:

Judge Juan Merchan told the jury that in order to find the defendant guilty, the prosecutors are required to prove:

1. On or about Feb. 14, 2017, fromer president Donald Trump personally made or caused a false entry in business enterprise, specifically invoice from his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen

2. Trump did so with intent to commit another crime or intent to conceal another crime. That leaves 33 remaining counts – each for falsifying business records.  The only difference is different business record or date. The jury can ask to repeat the law in its entirely as many times.

2nd count relates to voucher kept or remained by the Trump Organization. 3rd count relates to voucher kept or remained by Trump Org.
