Donald Trump Found Guilty on All Counts


Highlight:

Donald Trump has been found guilty on all 34 felony charges in the New York Hush Money Case.


Context:

According to CNN Manhattan jury found Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records he faced in his New York hush money criminal trial.

Trump is the first president in US history to be convicted of a felony.

Prosecutors accused Trump of taking part in an illegal conspiracy to undermine the integrity of the 2016 election and an unlawful plan to suppress negative information, which included concealing a hush money payment to an adult film star.


Trump slammed the trial after the verdict, calling it a “disgrace” and “rigged."

Judge Juan Merchan denied Trump's move for an acquittal of the charges and set a sentencing hearing for July 11.



Key Take Aways:

  • Eligibility ‐ Trump still run for president? Yes, but he can't vote in most states. (48 states say convicted felons cannot vote)

  • Guilty - What about being voted guilty? Dem. Nancy Pelosi had already led the House of Representatives to vote 'yes to impeach Trump', all Senate Dems voted yes to impeach too but not 'enough' Senate Republicans voted yes for it. If that Democrat led 'congressional impeachment trial' had worked back right after Jan 6th, then Trump would have been barred from ever holding office again.

  • Up To Voters: Voters have the final say. Those who hope this blocks a Trump presidency would need to use their influence, arts, talents, volunteering, and donations to get people vote against Trump. It is expected that Trump will will definitely keep running run to try & use the presidency to pardon himself.
