Trump Jail Sentence Delayed By Big Name

It has been noted that Manhattan prosecutors agreed on Tuesday to not oppose delaying sentencing for former President Donald Trump’s criminal convictions so that the judge in the case can consider Monday’s bombshell Supreme Court ruling granting presidents immunity for “official acts” committed while in office — even though the court noted Trump’s arguments were “without merit” via Mediaite.



The news was broken by ABC News senior reporter Katherine Faulders who posted the letter sent by the prosecutors to Judge Juan Merchan on X, formerly Twitter.

Trump was previously convicted of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to help cover up hush money payments related to former adult star Stormy Daniels and the 2016 presidential election. The former president was initially scheduled to be sentenced on July 11th and faces up to four years in prison, although most observers believe he will avoid jail.

Trump’s criminal conviction relates to acts taken before his time in office, but his lawyers still made the case that the Supreme Court ruling should be considered.

Trump himself posted on social media on Monday that all his criminal cases should be tossed due to the ruling, which does not cover either his classified documents case or Georgia election interference case.

“Although the Manhattan case does not center on Mr. Trump’s presidency or official acts — but rather personal activity during his campaign — his lawyers argued on Monday that prosecutors had built their case partly on evidence from his time in the White House. And under the Supreme Court’s new ruling, prosecutors not only cannot charge a president for any official acts, but also cannot cite evidence involving official acts to bolster other accusations,” noted the New York Times on this issue.
