Alan Dershowitz, a distinguished Harvard Law professor, and a preeminent authority on US constitutional law, opined on Sunday that it is highly unlikely that Donald Trump will face any of his four criminal trials before the 2024 general election. This sentiment was echoed by two other attorneys, mere hours before the Atlanta District Attorney was slated to disclose initial details of her broad anti-racketeering case against the former president and 18 other co-defendants, including his former chief of staff.
In multiple interviews, Dershowitz has stated that the purpose behind the filing of these cases by state and federal officials appears to be to hasten a trial that could adversely affect Trump’s prospects, irrespective of whether the charges ultimately stand or are overturned on appeal.
He also pointed out that Trump has been strategically charged in regions where the majority of the population is opposed to him. This view was supported by several other individuals, all of whom concurred that it is unlikely for Trump to be held accountable in a timely fashion.
Donald Trump made history by becoming the first past president to be photographed for a mugshot following his arrest for attempting to reverse the 2020 election results in Georgia.
Legal experts are warning of a slim likelihood for Donald Trump’s trial in his four criminal cases before the upcoming general election. Three attorneys stated this on Sunday, shortly before an Atlanta District Attorney unveils details of her anti-racketeering case against Trump and 18 co-defendants, including his ex-chief of staff.
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, a US constitutional law expert, discussed the unlikely chance of Trump facing trial in various cases across states like New York, Florida, and Washington, DC. Dershowitz indicated that officials are pushing these cases to quickly harm Trump’s image, regardless of potential appeal outcomes.
“They can’t get it done in two weeks,” Dershowitz said, adding, “They know it will take longer than that.’
Dershowitz also claimed that Trump has been intentionally indicted in regions where the majority of the population is against him. This perspective was supported by several other individuals, all of whom concurred that it is unlikely for Trump to be held accountable in a timely manner.
