Trump smoked again as the appeals court denied the postponement of the trial in Manhattan

An appeals court has seen through Trump’s latest attempt to delay his hush-money criminal trial that begins next week.

CNN reported:

An appeals court in New York has denied Donald Trump’s petition to change the location of his upcoming hush money trial.

The former president’s lawyers had urged the court on Monday to delay the trial so they could consider whether to change the venue, arguing that Trump cannot get a fair jury in New York.

But Associate Justice Lizbeth González quickly denied the request to halt the trial after hearing arguments Monday, and there is no further argument on the venue change proposal.

Trump’s basic argument is that he cannot get a fair trial in the place where he allegedly committed so many crimes. Trump has been found liable in civil court for decades of fraud and the rape of E. Jean Carroll. He will soon stand trial for the hush money payments to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election and beyond, which Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg has argued constituted election interference, along with falsifying corporate records.

Donald Trump is apparently very concerned about his trial in Manhattan. He is trying to change the venue while possibly laying the groundwork to claim to his supporters that he was convicted because he could not get a fair trial.

I forget what Trump posts on Truth Social. What he tells the lawyers in court to do is the behavior of a frightened defendant worried about his conviction.
