Former Trump Lawyer Expects Ex-President To Be Found Guilty

Former Trump White House lawyer Ty Cobb explained why he expects the jury in Manhattan to find Trump guilty potentially by Friday.

Cobb was quoted as saying:

If the jury gets the case on Tuesday afternoon, given the number of charges and the three different tracks available to jurors, the verdict could take a little time. However, the paper trail and the physical evidence are so strong against Trump that, given, as Cobb pointed out, the jury instructions, a verdict of guilty seems to be the path that this case seems to be on.

Juries can go in all sorts of directions, and no one outside of the jurors themselves knows what they are thinking, but it doesn’t take much reading between the lines to understand that Trump and his supporters have been preparing his fans and trying to pre-spin a guilty verdict in the media for weeks.

It bears repeating again that anything can happen once a jury gets a case. History is full of high-profile trials involving rich and powerful people in which the jury returns an unexpected verdict. However, the general consensus among legal experts like Cobb is that they expect Trump to be convicted.
