What do you think will be the outcome of the New York fraud trial?

How do you think TFG’s current fraud trial in New York will end? The prosecution is expected to rest their case next week leaving the defense to present their side of things.

I have 2 major problems with this trial:

1. It should either be about the classified documents or that time he attempted to overthrow the government. This trial looks like it is about sex or about business people fudging records like they all do.

2. This trial and the others look political because they should have been brought as soon as the allegations came to light and NOT after he declared he was running for president. For that reason it looks to most people that democrats are just trying to hurt his campaign. A great disservice was done to this country when it was decided to just let him off the hook when he lost the last election.

He will skate on this hush money trial because Michael Cohen and Allen Weisselberg did such a good job of insulating him.

It's up to the voters to reject Trump. The justice system will fail and/or refuse to disqualify him.
