The Court Will Be In Session: Trump Crime Family Dates!

Guys, our pals over at Electoral-Vote has gumshoed (is too a vurb) all the known court dates for Trump Crime Family -related cases (so far):

  • Feb. 17: Donald Trump has been out of office for a year, but investigations into his inauguration are still going on, ever so slowly. There will be a hearing today on whether the case can go forward. There are a lot of unanswered questions about where the money came from and where it went. If the case goes forward, then the discovery process can start. Sometime in a couple of years there might even be a trial. Probably by the time it goes the trial, all the key witnesses will be long dead, so the judge will call it a mistrial.
  • Feb. 28: The first actual trial of sometime indicted for his role in the attempted coup will begin on Feb. 28. The accused is Guy Reffitt, who is charged with civil disorder, obstructing Congress, and taking a semiautomatic weapon into the Capitol. This trial will give a clue on how the Dept. of Justice plans to handle later trials.
  • March 7: Trump spent months trying to block the House Select Committee from getting documents about what he was doing on Jan. 6. He claimed executive privilege but the Supreme Court refused to take the case. The Dept. of Justice gave Trump until March 7 to determine his next step. No doubt Trump will try for more delays.
  • April 4: The second special grand jury empaneled by the Manhattan D.A. looking into the Trump organization’s finances is scheduled to finish on this date.
  • May 2: Back in 2015, there was a protest outside Trump Tower. The protesters claimed Trump’s security guards roughed them up and they sued. Jury selection is scheduled to start on May 2, 6 years after the event. A video of a deposition Trump gave is expected to be played during the trial.
  • May 2: Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis has asked for special grand jury to be empaneled on May 2 to investigate Trump’s “request” to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to “find 12,000 more votes.” Once the grand jury is in place, she can start sending out subpoenas. Raffensperger is running for reelection and no doubt does not want to testify voluntarily, since Trump supporters will see that as treason. However, when Willis subpoenas him, he will definitely show up and testify. A big unknown here is whether Willis will subpoena Trump and what happens when he refuses to show up, which is a virtual certainty.
  • May 13: One of Trump’s biggest supporters, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), is under investigation on federal sex trafficking charges. His buddy, Joel Greenberg, is said to be cooperating with the government. A federal judge wants to know how that is going before sentencing Greenberg for allegedly helping Gaetz move underage girls across state lines. May 13 is when the judge make his final decision.
  • June 29: Some people have sued the Trump Organization for running a pyramid scheme. They want to see the “Celebrity Apprentice” tapes and on June 29, they will get them.
  • June 30: Willis has said she will decide whether to charge Trump in the first half of 2022. Of course, a lot depends on whether Raffensperger shows up on time and tells her under oath that which she has read 1,000 times in the media. Needless to say, Trump is not going to show up by June 30, but she may feel that the recording she will subpoena from Raffensperger is enough for an indictment.
  • July 12: The New York State Supreme Court will hold a hearing on the case brought by the Manhattan D.A. against Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, who received income-in-kind from the organization and didn’t pay the required taxes on it. The prosecution has 6 million pages of documents that it got during discovery. The judge wants to know how they are doing. He could schedule a trial for later this year. If Weisselberg wanted to make a deal to save his own neck, he would have done it already, so it looks like he will fall on his sword to save Trump. The D.A. could yet go after Weisselberg’s son for tax evasion if he wants to, to increase the pressure.
  • July 18: Steve Bannon got a congressional subpoena and told Congress to shove it. The Dept. of Justice then indicted him for this act of defiance. On July 18, his trial begins and we will discover whether obeying a congressional subpoena is mandatory or a user option.
  • Sept. 7: Tom Barrack, another Trump crony and the chairman of the Trump inaugural committee, had a side gig lobbying for the United Arab Emirates. That is actually legal—as long as you register as a foreign agent, which Barrack did not do, of course. Barrack’s trial begins on Sept. 7. There might be a couple of questions about whether the UAE donated a whole pile of money to the inauguration, what they got in return, and Barrack’s role in all this.
  • Nov. 7: Trump’s world is complicated because so many of the people he deals with commit crimes independent of him. They can sometimes be pressured on those cases. On Nov. 7, Roger Stone goes on trial in federal court on charges that he cheated on his federal taxes to the extent of $2 million.

And these are only the cases already scheduled. There could be plenty of others scheduled later this year.

    I’ve got a funny feeling that Weisselberg knows not only where the bodies are buried but also how they got there. Figuratively, of course.

    We will never see them convicted. Everyone in my village is waiting for TFG to die, finally. We don’t even believe in the gods anymore, because if they exist they would have answered our prayers already. We can still make things uncomfortable for the kids and we will.

    Too bad becoming a recluse is not an option for the egomaniac TFG. I imagine tuning out sounds better every day for these people.
