Trump Moves to Reverse Verdict in New York Case After Historic Supreme Court Ruling

by John Solomon


Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers moved quickly Monday night to take advantage of the Supreme Court ruling that he enjoyed immunity from criminal prosecution for official acts, sending a letter notifying the judge in his New York hush money case that they intend to ask to set aside the verdict reached by a jury last month, according to multiple sources.

The sources, speaking to Just the News on condition of anonymity, asked Judge Juan Merchan to give them until July 10 to file arguments supporting a motion to vacate the verdict. 

The letter asked for permission to file the motion and laid out a timetable for trying to resolve the issues before the court.

Trump signaled he planned to move aggressively to challenge the verdict in light of the 6-3 ruling by the Supreme Court that presidents enjoy immunity for their official acts.

Earlier in the day, he posted that the ruling “should end all of Crooked Joe Biden’s Witch Hunts against me, including the New York Hoaxes.”
