As most know and is plainly obvious, Cheetolini (aka Trump) plans to delay his trials until after the election, in the hope he can be reappointed by the “electoral college” without winning the popular vote (as he did in 2016) and then pardon himself before becoming presidente de por vida.
Also as most know, his “hire ’em and fire ’em” turnover of lawyers has been as rapid as a short order cook’s hamburger grill turnover. But I’m starting to suspect that Cheetolini’s turnover of lawyers isn’t solely because he’s an abrasive jerk and a swindler who never pays.
I think he’s being an abrasive jerk and a swindler and not paying because he wants a constant turnover of lawyers.
I think lawyer turnover is a delay strategy: “I can’t find competent defence for trial! I need a continuation!” He’s doing this to prevent the case going forward. I predict that his current lawyers (John Lauro, et al) will be fired or quit by the end of the year, and Cheetolini will demand another delay to replace them and “let them prepare”.
If I could have judge Chutkan’s ear for one moment right now, I would tell her:
1) Appoint a group of legal aid public defence or other qualified lawyers in secret and give them the same evidence given to Lauro’s team.
2) If Cheetolini fires Lauro, appoint the public defenders and go forward with the trial anyway. They will have a defence ready, and they are Georgia lawyers so they are qualified to work in those courts.
3) Jail Cheetolini for contempt, for using revolving door lawyers as a delay tactic. Hold him until the trial begins to silence him from any social media activity.
4) Bar Cheetolini from changing his defence team, ordering that he MUST to go forward with the public defenders.
Cheetolini had and has access to adequate defence for trial. If he gets rid of them, it’s because he doesn’t want lawyers, he wants a delay.
Appointing a qualified team in secret would guarantee him adequate defence, a speedy trial, and make appeals much harder.
