CNN’s recent Trump trial announcement has America stunned

The Left is not backing down from its goal of destroying this great nation. But now, things have taken a major turn.

And CNN’s recent Trump trial announcement has America stunned.

In a remarkable development, CNN’s top legal expert Elie Honig has stated that the criminal charges against former President Donald Trump in Georgia may completely disintegrate following the recent postponement of the case.

Honig, a seasoned Senior Legal Analyst and former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, made these observations after a Georgia appellate court decided to halt the proceedings this week.

“It’s over. Let’s be realistic. It’s not happening before the 2024 election. It’s not happening in 2024. It’s maybe not happening at all,” Honig asserted. His comments highlight the significant legal and procedural hurdles that now loom over the prosecution’s case.

The charges against Trump stem from his alleged attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, a state that played a critical role in President Joe Biden’s victory.

The indictment, brought forth by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, accused Trump and several of his associates of conspiracy and racketeering.

However, the appellate court’s decision to take up the case and halt the district court’s proceedings has cast serious doubt on the future of these charges.

Honig emphasized the unusual nature of the appellate court’s decision to pause the case.

“The appeals court, we can never predict what they’re going to do. But there’s some things we know for sure. Number one, they didn’t have to take this case, the appeal, and they chose to. The other thing is they didn’t have to pause the district court,” he explained.

He further elaborated that the trial court judge had initially planned to continue proceedings while the appeal was underway.

“The trial court judge specified, while you all are doing that, I am going to continue holding proceedings in this trial court,” Honig noted. However, the appellate court overruled this decision, signaling that they are taking the appeal “very seriously.”

If Trump and his co-defendants succeed in their appeal, it could mean the end of the case. “If Trump and the defendants prevail in this appeal, this case is essentially toast,” Honig predicted.

This would not only be a significant legal victory for Trump but also a major blow to the efforts of District Attorney Fani Willis, who has been criticized for her handling of the case.

Honig also pointed out that if the case is dismissed, former Trump officials who have already pled guilty might retract their pleas.

This would add another layer of complexity and embarrassment to the already beleaguered prosecution.

A critical element of the defense’s appeal is the conduct of District Attorney Willis. Honig highlighted that Willis’ comments outside of court have been deemed “legally improper” by Judge Scott McAfee.

“There is a separate issue that Trump and the other defendants are going to raise that I think is a bigger deal, which is Fani Willis’ inappropriate comments about the case outside of court,” Honig said.

Judge McAfee’s recognition of these comments as “legally improper” but his failure to act on them provides a strong argument for the defense.

“The defense is going to argue to the Court of Appeals, if the prosecutor makes, quote, ‘legally improper’ statements that impair the constitutional rights of the defendant, there needs to be a remedy for that,” Honig asserted.

This development comes at a crucial time as Trump seeks to solidify his position for the 2024 presidential election.

The former president has repeatedly described the charges against him as politically motivated, a sentiment echoed by many Americans.

The postponement of Trump’s Georgia trial and the appellate court’s decision to review the case have injected new uncertainty into the legal battles surrounding the former president.

Elie Honig’s analysis underscores the fragile nature of the prosecution’s case and the possibility that it could fall apart entirely.
