Judge Alvin Hellerstein, who is responsible for deciding if former President Donald Trump's Manhattan criminal case will be moved to a federal court, has previously worked for Trump.
Hellerstein worked for the law firm Stroock & Stroock & Lavan as a private practice lawyer and provided services to Trump-Equitable Fifth Avenue. The discovery of this connection could impact the decision to move the case.
Donald Trump knows he will never win in Manhattan regardless of the facts of the case thanks to Manhattan being completely liberal. There is no chance of a fair trial and his team is working to move the case to the federal level.
Hellerstein is set to deliver a decision on moving the case on June 27th. Hellerstein also defended his impartiality and pointed out that he had retired from Stroock & Stroock & Lavan in 1998.
Trump's case revolves around 34 counts of falsifying business records to make hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The case had already been heavily litigated and Donald Trump was cleared of any wrongdoing. That was until radical leftist Alvin Bragg decided to press charges that were so weak even the notoriously liberal DOJ wasn't even willing to push.
Bragg is banking on a New York City jury ignoring the weak case and convicting Trump based on political factors.
Trump's legal team is arguing for a move to the federal level because the case "involves important federal questions since the indictment charges President Trump for conduct committed while he was president of the United States."
It is critical that Trump's legal team convinces Hellerstein to move the case and prevent another subversion of justice.
Donald Trump has already learned that he cannot get a fair trial in liberal states. Last month, Trump was found guilty by a Manhattan jury for defaming author E. Jean Carroll for denying her claims that he had raped her in 1996.
The jury made this ruling despite confirming that Trump had not raped Carroll. Essentially, Trump defended himself from wild and defamatory accusations and was found guilty of defamation by a jury that was no doubt filled with rabid leftists.
Trump's attorney Joe Tacopina commented on this saying, "This was a rape claim. This was rape case all along and the jury rejected that, but made other findings. But they rejected her rape claim and she’d always claimed this was a rape case so it’s a little perplexing, but we move forward."
The jury was determined to find Trump guilty no matter the facts of the case. Not only did that ruling establish a disturbing precedent, it demonstrated that a conservative politician will never get a fair shake in New York.
Trump is facing the possibility of being convicted of a felony in his business records case and that will effect his presidential campaign. The pressure is on and his team will need to do everything in their power to get Trump a fair trial.
