Ex-Prosecutor Urges Judge To Call Donald Trump’s Bluff On Latest Legal Move

via UFC on Youtube

Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance doubts Donald Trump’s request for cameras in the courtroom during his trial over 2020 election interference, suggesting it is a strategic move to portray himself as a victim and undermine trust in the government.

She argues that allowing cameras could expose the truth and evidence, and Trump’s legal team may have inadvertently provided a reason for the judge to permit them.

“It’s meant as a strategic measure to paint himself as martyr and the government as a Soviet-style prosecution,” she wrote.

“He might even change course if it appeared the trial was going to be televised.”

“Trump wants to damage trust in the government and call this a kangaroo court — fine, let him have his way and let the sunlight into his trial,” she added.

“Because the facts are the facts and the evidence is the evidence. People are entitled to the truth here.”

“Federal courts have traditionally disallowed cameras out of concern for a defendant’s due process rights,” she explained.

“Here, Trump has effectively mooted that argument. He has waived the argument on appeal. There is no reason, other than the existence of an outmoded rule, to prevent the public from observing this most important of trials.”

Vance highlights that Trump’s request could potentially waive concerns about due process rights and could be an opportunity for the public to observe the trial.
