It’s A Make-Or-Break Week For Trump’s Four Criminal Cases

The Daily Caller sums them up in this headline…DC reports:

Former President Donald Trump faces a crucial week in all four of his criminal cases.

Proceedings slated to take place in each of the cases this week will shed more light on their timelines and whether a trial will be held ahead of the 2024 election. Importantly, Trump’s bid to dismiss his election interference case is now back before the Supreme Court, and the justices’ coming decision will determine whether proceedings can resume at the lower court. 

Trump asked the justices Monday to halt the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision finding he is not immune from prosecution while he files his appeal. If the justices decline Trump’s request for a stay or his eventual appeal, his trial before District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan would be clear to move ahead.

The justices have requested a response from special counsel Jack Smith by Feb. 20 at 4 pm.

Granting Trump’s request for a stay would further postpone the trial. If the justices also take up his eventual appeal, the timeline for his trial will depend on how soon the Supreme Court chooses to hear and resolve the issue.”

One suspects that however this works it will yet again send Trump’s poll numbers soaring.
