Retired NYPD inspector Paul Mauro joins Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla to give his take on a Manhattan jury convicting former President Trump on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

“So essentially what it comes down to is this. You get 34 misdemeanors, they bump to a felony in service to a second crime. Now, this is what a lot of media is getting wrong. That second crime is named. And it is New York state election law. It is an obscure statute of the New York state election law, which very clearly was not contemplated to be used in this way. But, you know, brig drags it out of mothballs. I don’t know that it’s ever been used. And he uses it. Here’s the subtlety. Under that second law, it has to be done by, quote unquote, unlawful means. That’s where the action is right there. Because the unlawful means that are listed is that laundry list of three other statutes. So you have the first statute, the misdemeanor, falsification of business records, the 34 of them, lean on the second statute, which is the election law, which states that you have to impede an election by unlawful means. What are your local means? Here’s a list of three. And you can use any of these three, jurors, to say it’s an unlawful means. Now what’s subtlety? You’re not charging those three. They are just the quote unquote unlawful means. So that’s why he’s getting kind of away with it. Even though it is constitutional law that every element of a crime has to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. That’s not in the jury result here. And that’s why it is so vulnerable to reversal. There’s no way this is going to hold up.”

Jimmy and Paul also discuss the possibility of Judge Juan Merchan giving Trump a jail sentence. Listen to the podcast to hear everything they talked about!
