Trump calls on Supreme Court to prevent his sentencing for New York conviction

By Jenny Goldsberry

Presidential candidate Donald Trump issued a plea to the Supreme Court Sunday to intervene in his hush-money case before he is sentenced.

Judge Juan Merchan is scheduled to sentence Trump on July 11, just four days before the Republican National Convention, at which the former president is presumed to be named the party’s presidential nominee. This will come over a month after the Manhattan jury found Trump guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records.

“The ‘Sentencing’ for not having done anything wrong will be, conveniently for the Fascists, 4 days before the Republican National Convention,” Trump wrote on Truth Social on Sunday evening. “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!”
