Massive Day for Trump Across US Courts

Listen tothis article

President Trump had a massive day in court in two cases. I’d love to talk about something other than Trump being in court, but that’s where we are right now in this country, with the far Left doing anything it can to prosecute him.

First, the Georgia Court of Appeals agreed to hear arguments for why Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis should be disqualified from President Trump’s Georgia election interference case. If you remember, Judge McAfee declined to dismiss DA Willis after noting that an “odor of mendacity” – lying – permeated Willis’ testimony regarding her relationship with Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade. So Trump appealed, arguing that Willis’ misconduct had tainted the case.

The appeals court agreed with the arguments we made in our amicus brief that this case and the level of impropriety involved deserved a second look.

In agreeing to hear Trump’s appeal, the Georgia Court of Appeals is acknowledging that Trump’s appeal has some merit – it wouldn’t waste its time otherwise. Of course, this doesn’t mean the judges will dismiss Willis, but they will listen to the arguments from Trump’s legal team. Also, this delay increases the potential that this trial will not occur before the 2024 presidential election.

Due to the latest development, the ACLJ is also preparing to file a second amicus brief – led by our own former Georgia prosecutor – to disqualify DA Willis and protect the integrity of our judicial system. We will be filing this brief next month.

In President Trump’s classified documents case, Judge Aileen Cannon postponed the trial indefinitely after Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-4) launched an investigation into Special Counsel Jack Smith’s admission of evidence tampering. The trial had been originally scheduled for May 20.

And now no new trial date has been set for the near future after Judge Cannon said the court is dealing with the “myriad and interconnected pre-trial” concerns. The far Left is unhappy about this development because this case also will likely not happen before November.

As we reported yesterday, Rep. Jordan is launching an investigation after Special Counsel Smith ironically mishandled the same classified documents that he accused Trump of mishandling. Such a revelation clearly raises several questions in the case against the former President.

Yet even more shocking, allegations have arisen of Smith engaging in witness tampering by offering a lawyer a judgeship if he got a key witness to cooperate. So, yes, at the very least, the judge has several issues to resolve before the trial resumes.

I also want to remind you of a persecuted Church case we are involved in. The ACLJ is advocating for the release of Pastor Raymond Koh, who ran a charity in Malaysia that served vulnerable populations, including the poor, single mothers, and children. However, this Christian pastor was targeted for allegedly evangelizing Muslims and was abducted by government forces.

In a rehearsed maneuver lasting only 40 seconds, public footage shows at least 15 men emerging from three black SUVs, forcing Pastor Koh into one of the vehicles, and driving off. He has not been seen since.

Pastor Koh’s abduction was a violation of Malaysia’s constitution, which claims to protect religious freedom. It’s a case of forced disappearance, intended to intimidate the Christian community, stemming from Pastor Koh’s Christian faith and position as a pastor.

Each year, we submit Universal Periodic Reviews (UPR) to the United Nations Human Rights Council (U.N. HRC) promoting and protecting human rights around the world. Through the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), our international affiliate with consultative status at the U.N., we are directly advocating for Pastor Koh. You can read our most recent UPR on Pastor Koh’s behalf here.

Today’s Sekulow broadcast included a full analysis of the massive day that President Trump had in the Deep State’s endless lawfare against him. Former U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard discussed the far-Left billionaire donors contributing to President Biden’s reelection and the college protests. Tulsi also discussed her book For Love of Country: Leave the Democrat Party Behind.
