Facebook post suggests jurors LEAKED Trump verdict… judge issues inquiry letter to attorneys
06/12/2024 // Belle Carter // Views

A Facebook post has sparked speculations of a mistrial on former President Donald Trump's hush money case conviction of 34 felony charges in Manhattan. The said social media comment implied that jurors were discussing plans to find the ex-president guilty before delivering their verdict.

Juan Merchan, the New York judge who was overseeing the trial, sent a letter to the prosecution and defense attorneys about the message. "Today, the Court became aware of a comment that was posted on the Unified Court System's public Facebook page and which I now bring to your attention," the judge opened his correspondence.

The user, named Michael Anderson, wrote the post that read: "My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted [heart emoji] Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!"

It sparked confusion on a New York Unified Court System's Facebook page, with analysts asking, "Did one of the jurors discuss the case with others when they were not allowed to?" Meanwhile, Trump supporters could not help but cry a "mistrial" as they called authorities to strike out Trump's conviction from the record.

A Trump campaign official said "We're investigating," when asked about Merchan's letter. (Related: Jonathan Emord decries SHAM trial and RIGGED verdict against Trump in explosive new interview with Mike Adams.)

Trump could appeal how he was charged in the Manhattan hush-money case

According to some experts, how Trump was charged in the Manhattan hush money case could be one of the strongest arguments for an appeal.

"I'm assuming that the Trump team is going to have a robust appeal with several arguments starting from the pre-trial process, through the trial and possibly the sentencing," Fordham University School of Law professor Cheryl Bader told ABC News. "I think they're going to make any potential argument that they can on appeal."

Trump was charged with the crime of falsifying business records and it was considered a misdemeanor. However, prosecutors charged the former president with a felony, arguing he falsified records with the intent to conceal another crime.

"I think the statute is at risk of being declared unconstitutional because the statute that charged the former president with the felony does not say what that other crime is that elevates the misdemeanor to a felony," Randy Zelin, a Cornell Law School professor, told the media outlet.

Trump could also potentially argue that the charges were unconstitutionally "vague" based on the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.

"In a criminal law setting, if a statute is too vague, as to inform the average citizen what actions would cause criminal liability, it would be void, because it's vague and how I would say it applies here would be, it'd be very hard for any attorney before Donald Trump's trial to say that we would know, or be aware of, or could even advise a potential client that federal election laws, which a state prosecutor doesn't have jurisdiction over -- could be used to elevate a misdemeanor, that has passed the statute limitations, into a felony, that is within the statute of limitations," Brian Buckmire, an ABC News legal contributor, said, "It's a little bit vague as to how the prosecutors did that – I can see why they did that – but I think there might be a constitutional argument for void for vagueness there."
