Trump’s Case Dismissal Plea: Cohen’s Theft Revealed, Credibility Questioned



Clear Facts

  • Former President Donald Trump suggested that NY v. Trump trial Judge Juan Merchan could regain “respect” by ruling to dismiss the case.
  • Trump’s defense attorney, Todd Blanche, motioned for a dismissal, stating the lack of any false business records or filings related to the case.
  • Prosecution’s star witness, Michael Cohen, confessed to stealing thousands of dollars from the Trump Organization.

In a recent turn of events, former President Donald Trump hinted that Judge Juan Merchan, presiding over the NY v. Trump case, might regain “respect” by deciding to dismiss the case. Trump was quoted as saying, “This case should be dropped by the judge. I think the judge, if he did, that … could gain the respect back. The appellate court has to step in, something has to happen.”

Trump reiterated his wish for the case to be concluded, pointing out that he was subjected to lengthy court proceedings. He also stressed that the case should be ended, asserting that no offenses were committed.

Todd Blanche, Trump’s defense attorney, requested a dismissal order earlier this week, stating that there is “absolutely no false business filings” and no evidence linking Trump to any wrongdoings. He questioned the legality of withholding a false story from voters.

The case revolves around 34 counts of falsifying business records, with a primary focus on payments made by Trump to Stormy Daniels, a former adult film star. The ongoing trial alleges that Trump forged records to conceal a $130,000 payment to Daniels to suppress her claims of an affair, an allegation which Trump has persistently denied.

A surprising development occurred when the prosecution’s star witness, Michael Cohen, conceded to stealing thousands of dollars from the Trump Organization. Cohen admitted that he kept $30,000 from the organization by overcharging the amount he paid a tech company for services rendered.

Cohen’s confession, which resulted in him being labeled a “grifter” and a liar by legal professionals, has triggered a variety of opinions suggesting that his credibility as a witness has been seriously compromised. This development calls into question the strength of the prosecution’s case and raises doubts about the charges against Trump.

Interestingly, Michael Cohen also revealed his potential plans to run for Congress, stating that he possesses the “best name recognition out there.”

The trial saw heightened tensions, with Merchan having to expel media and jurors from the room after numerous objections from the prosecution team during Robert Costello’s testimony.

Trump has consistently declared his innocence throughout the trial, describing it as a “sham” and “witch hunt” instigated by the Biden administration and the Department of Justice before the 2024 election. With closing arguments expected next Tuesday, the trial continues to captivate public and media attention.

      You are so right. He just doesn’t want them to investigate him & his son anymore.
      President Trump didn’t do anything wrong in his business ventures. If Judge Merchan wants anyone to respect him, he needs to end the case now./
