Trump implores Judge Merchan to dismiss the trial to preserve his reputation.


Former President Donald Trump urged Judge Juan Merchan to dismiss the NY v. Trump case during remarks outside the Manhattan courtroom, emphasizing that it could “save his reputation.” Trump’s comments came as jury deliberations commenced, with Merchan receiving two notes from the jury, including a request to rehear instructions.

The case against Trump involves 34 counts of falsifying business records, with prosecutors alleging that he falsified records to conceal a $130,000 payment to former porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election to silence her alleged affair claims from 2006.

Trump vehemently denounced the trial, accusing Merchan of being conflicted and corrupt, suggesting that even Mother Teresa couldn’t prevail against the charges. He criticized the state of the country, citing issues like border security and alleged election fraud, while asserting that Merchan’s perceived conflicts hindered his ability to conduct a fair trial.

Throughout the proceedings, Trump has consistently called for Merchan’s recusal and the dismissal of the case, suggesting that such actions could restore respect to the judiciary. He highlighted the strain of enduring weeks of trial proceedings and reiterated his belief that the case should be dropped by the judge or addressed by the appellate court.

Trump’s remarks underscore the contentious nature of the trial and his ongoing efforts to challenge its legitimacy. As the proceedings continue, the outcome remains uncertain, with Trump’s defense team and prosecutors engaging in a high-stakes legal battle that has captivated public attention.
