Supreme Court Throws Trump Under The Bus?

( – Legal experts have told The Hill that they do not believe the Supreme Court is going to intercede in former President Donald Trump’s criminal case, despite the fact that three of the six conservative justices were appointed by Trump.

Still, experts are conflicted on how likely it is that the Supreme Court is going to need to hear an appeal in connection to the cases against Trump in the Southern Florida District Court or the District of Columbia’s federal court.

Whether Trump’s legal team is going to be able to have the D.C. Circuit Court or the Supreme Court get rid of a number of the convictions is going to depend on the procedural decisions of Southern Florida District Judge Aileen Cannon and D.C. District Judge Tanya Chutkan is going to make.

On Friday, Trump once again took to Truth Social to accuse the Department of Justice that the indictments against him were politically motivated. He also stated that the Supreme Court needed to intervene against these indictments.

However, legal experts have argued that the Supreme Court will most likely not look into criminal cases against Trump unless a verdict is reached. This is likely to take place either earlier this year or in 2024.

George Mason University law professor Ilya Somin who deals with Constitution law argued that it is unlikely that the Supreme Court is going to intervene, especially as the legal issues deal with statutory interpretation points. She did however acknowledge that on occasion the court did take on cases that did not have broad legal significance, but only when those were important because of the specific litigants involved. Such a case occurred during the 2000 presidential election in the case of Bush v. Gore.
