Trump Rips Judge Merchan Over Supreme Court Hearing

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday leveled sharp criticism at Manhattan Judge Juan Merchan. The jurist prohibited the presumptive Republican nominee from attending this week’s critical Supreme Court hearing on his presidential immunity case.

Instead, Marchan ordered Trump to stay in New York City for the latest courtroom persecution brought by Democrats. This installment features accusations of falsifying documents brought by radical progressive District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Marchan threatened to throw Trump behind bars if he missed a day of the current case.

The 45th president argued that the Manhattan judge believes he is superior to the Supreme Court.

Interviewed by Fox News, Trump declared, “Because he thinks he is above the Supreme Court, he is prohibiting me from going to the presidential immunity hearing where some of the great legal scholars will be arguing the case.”

He correctly added that it is likely the “most important” hearing before the high court in several years.

Trump asked to be extended the courtesy to be able to attend such a pivotal hearing at which he has much at stake. But Merchan flatly rejected the request.

The high court is expected to determine in June if Trump is entitled to the presidential immunity afforded to every one of his predecessors as well as Joe Biden. This would shield him from the case brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith over so-called “election interference.”

Trump noted the damage possible to the Executive Branch if the Supreme Court rules against him.

He told the outlet, “Without presidential immunity, the presidency becomes a ceremonial position only, it will be decimated. He’s prohibiting me from going. He is a radical left Democrat.”

Merchan responded to the query by admitting that the immunity case before the high court “is a big deal.” He said he understood Trump’s motivation for wanting to be present.

But then he added, “A trial in New York Supreme Court…is also a big deal.”

Trump pleaded not guilty to all 34 counts of falsifying business records filed by Bragg’s office. He told Fox that the consensus among legal experts is that the case “should not have been brought, that there was no crime.”
