Former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Andy McCarthy joins Fox Across America With guest host Paul Gleiser to give his take on the severity of the four separate indictments former President Trump is currently facing, and how he thinks these cases will impact the 2024 presidential election.
“Well, I think what will happen is you know, Trump only has so much time on his dance card. Everybody seems to agree that the federal prosecution in Washington will go first unless an appeal knocks it out. There’s some news about that with respect to the immunity claim where the prosecutor is now going to the Supreme Court to ask the Supreme Court to expedite consideration of Trump’s immunity claim. But the state case in Atlanta is subject to a lot of litigation, including the possibility that it could be brought into federal court at some point. I don’t see that getting to trial, particularly given that the Washington case that I mentioned is supposed to take 2 to 3 months to try. And in the meantime, even though this is highly unlikely, the judge in Florida as the Mar-a-Lago case scheduled to go to trial May 20th, nobody realistically thinks that date will hold. But that trial will also take 2 to 3 months when it starts. So there just isn’t that much calendar time left in 2024, especially as you get closer to the election. And I actually think Alvin Bragg is not all that interested in trying the New York case anytime soon because it’s such a joke of a case. So it may just be that one of these cases gets to trial.”
