I've watched a few snippets of the Willis trial. She is acting like she's running the courtroom, even admonishing the judge. Refuses to answer questions and just goes off on tangential nonsense. Isn't this what people said Trump should be censured for in his NYC trial?

She needs to be immediately disbarred and all Georgia charges against Trump dropped. If nothing else has made it clear that Trump's Georgia charges are 100% political, it's her actions in her own trial.

The fact that the judge made little effort to control his courtroom when Willis was testifying makes me think he is going to let her off without any sanctions.  He's just going through the motions to appease her critics.

No doubt the GoFundMe will be cancelled as they often are when benefitting someone notable that is right of center politically.

The Trump hate has gotten to the point where the true believers would happily like to see supporters trucked off to be reeducated... Or put up against a wall, and shot. By the police and military, who will mindlessly obey their orders, because those subpeople didn't even graduate from high school.

Up to almost 0.1% of the goal.

I get the sentiment.  But this will be tossed on appeal.  At scotus if not before.

Yup. In the end, it likely gets Trump another few hundred thousand votes (or loses the establishment a few hundred thousand votes), and also screws NY, as it's another reason for large corporations to head on over to Florida or wherever, as this ruling set a dangerous precedent. Because once again they have made Trump the poster boy for, "If they can do it to him, they can do it to me".

I agree if by "subpeople" you mean the true believers, not the Trump supporters.

That was a joke, right?   =)

I get this case and the rape accusation case confused.  Were Trump lawyers allowed to present evidence in this case?  I think this was the one where the judge ruled an absurdly low value for Trump's Florida mansion and grounds.  I am not sure what other shenanigans were done in this case.

The thing about this case is that there were no victims of a crime. All the money was paid back with zero issues with the banks. AFAIK, no one that he dealt with complained to LE about him. The DA had to go on a scavenger hunt looking for something.

From what I can see, what they've done here is prosecute him for a crime regarding property valuation that would be similar to when you're doing your tax return and you get to the part about charitable contributions. There's a section where you can claim up to $500 in non-cash contributions (like the stuff you drop at the goodwill) without any detailed paperwork trail or red flags to the IRS. Just get the blank receipt that Goodwill et al gives you, and claim that you donated $499 in stuff, which is what you might think it was worth, even if no one else does.

You know that Trump will file his appeal, and attempt to put the money for the bond into escrow, and James will say "We never got the paperwork/noticification/whatever, so we're proceeding with the seizure. Oh, and that building he thought was worth $500million?  Yeah, it's really only worth $5mil (because that's what I'll sell it to a crony for in exchange for a kickback).  So we're going to need ALL his properties and then his bank accounts to satisfy the judgement."
