Trump Demands Supreme Court Reviews Case

Days after a Manhattan jury found him guilty on 34 counts of falsifying business records, former President Donald Trump has called on the Supreme Court to review the conviction.

In a post on Truth Social on Sunday night, Trump asked America’s highest court to step in and review the entire case, which is seen by many as a legal travesty and a political persecution.

“The ‘Sentencing’ for not having done anything wrong will be, conveniently for the Fascists, 4 days before the Republican National Convention. A Radical Left Soros backed D.A., who ran on a platform of ‘I will get Trump,’ reporting to an ‘Acting’ Local Judge, appointed by the Democrats, who is HIGHLY CONFLICTED, will make a decision which will determine the future of our Nation? The United States Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!” Trump wrote in his post.

Since Trump’s verdict came in and shook the nation, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has also called for the Supreme Court to overturn the conviction. During an appearance on Fox and Friends, Johnson said, “I think that the Justices on the court – I know many of them personally – I think they are deeply concerned about that, as we are. So I think they’ll set this straight.”

While he said that it might take a while for the Supreme Court to overturn the guilty verdict, he added, “this will be overturned, guys, there’s no question about it, it’s just going to take some time to do it.”

Author and TV host Mark Levin introduced the idea of taking the case straight to the Supreme Court on Thursday, shortly after the verdict came in. In a very lengthy post on X, Levin wrote, “The issue is how to get out of the New York system and bring the case to the Supreme Court, which may or may not take it up.”

“We need to give the Supreme Court the opportunity to intervene. If it chooses not to, then it won’t. But between Jack Smith criminalizing election challenges to the point that we do not know what is or is not legal, and now Bragg and Merchan criminalizing events and activities that are not illegal, to the point we don’t now know what they are, the Supreme Court, in my view, must do something. In the end, the S Ct will not be able to avoid this forever. Better to deal with now than later, when it will get worse,” he concluded.
