Trump’s desperate bid for hush money lawsuit remains rejected for the third time

For the third time in three days, an appeals court has denied Trump’s request for a delay in his hush-money criminal trial.

MSNBC’s Lisa Rubin wrote:

This time, Trump requested an emergency stay so he could appeal the ruling that he does not have presidential immunity and get Judge Merchan to recuse himself. The last application for a stay ended like all the others. It was rejected by the court of appeal.

Trump seems both frantic and desperate to avoid standing trial in the election interference/hush money case.

While Republicans argue that the criminal trials will help Trump, the reality is that if he is convicted of a crime in New York, it will be a potentially fatal blow to his 2024 presidential campaign. Unlike some other ongoing criminal cases against Trump, the hush money case has a simple plot that is easy to follow.

Donald Trump cheated on his wife with Stormy Daniels and then devised an illegal scheme to pay her off and keep her quiet during the 2016 election.

Trump does not want to appear in court. Even Republicans think he will be convicted, and more importantly, Trump is running out of options to delay the criminal trial before jury selection begins Monday.
