Donald Trump’s sentencing in hush money case DELAYED until September 18, right before election

Sentencing for Donald Trump’s 34-count hush money conviction is delayed after Judge Juan Merchan notified both Trump’s attorneys and the Manhattan District Attorney’s (DA) office that the original July 11 sentencing date will not work.

Originally scheduled to occur just days before the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Milwaukee, Trump’s sentencing will now take place on September 18, just days before the November 5 election.

The Manhattan DA’s office affirmed that it will not oppose Merchan’s delayed sentencing decision, which was influenced by Trump’s attorneys who have also moved to file a motion to overturn Trump’s hush money verdict entirely.

Trump’s attorneys sent a letter to Merchan requesting that his conviction be set aside and his sentencing delayed following the Supreme Court’s blockbuster immunity ruling, which essentially vindicates Trump of all wrongdoing in an official capacity during his time in the White House.

Merchan plans to release a final decision in the case on September 6. Depending on which direction that goes, Trump’s sentencing would then take place on September 18 as is currently planned.

Will Trump remain free?

In a statement following the Supreme Court decision, Trump claimed that it “totally dismantled most of the charges against me.”

The Manhattan DA’s office commented that it rejects the possibility of Trump’s conviction being voided due to the Supreme Court ruling.

“Although we believe defendant’s arguments to be without merit, we do not oppose his request for leave to file and his putative request to adjourn sentencing pending determination of his motion,” commented assistant district attorney Joshua Steinglass.

The Manhattan DA’s office is requesting two weeks from Trump’s lawyers to file paperwork as part of its response, which Merchan accepted. The deadline for the response is July 24.

According to Chief Justice John Roberts, the separation of powers delineated in the U.S. Constitution “entitles a former president to absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for actions within his conclusive and preclusive constitutional authority.”

“And he is entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts,” Roberts added. “There is no immunity for unofficial acts.”

In the comments, someone pointed out that of greater importance is the problem of insider trading, which is a cross-party thing that occurs both with Democrats and Republicans.

“This is one of the biggest reasons the media oscillates between focusing on Biden, then focusing on Trump,” responded another about how the media is doing its part to keep Americans divided and distracted from the issues that really matter.

“If the masses were to agree on the matter that no politicians should be allowed to insider trade, this is one of the darlings our corrupt leaders might lose.”

Another called for the entire case against Trump to be vacated because of Merchan’s irregular and improper behavior following his appointment as the presiding judge.

“There are crystal clear 5th, 6th and 14th Amendment violations committed by the court and prosecution in this case,” responded another. “There are also evidentiary violations from the testimonies of both Daniels and Cohen.”

“Bragg and Merchan know this case will lose on appeal before the Supreme Court decision,” suggested another. “Now it will be gutted along with the J6 case.”

“They contorted laws to make up crimes. They gambled and lost big time. Now it’s up to Merchan – what will he do? To go against a prosecutor’s request would be very odd. Seeing as this case was orchestrated by multiple players, I’m sure they decided this together. Joe Biden forced this immunity issue with his lawfare against his political opponent.”
