Judge Alerts Trump’s Team Of Suspicious Verdict Post 

Daily Report June 08,2024

Judge Juan Merchan, the presiding judge over former president Donald Trump’s hush money trial, has notified Trump’s attorney and the prosecution about a suspicious comment posted to a Facebook page.

The comment, made by a Facebook user claiming to be the cousin of one of the 12 jurors, revealed the former president’s guilty verdict a day before his conviction. The user, Michael Anderson, commented on a public Facebook page stating,

“My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted,” Anderson wrote. “Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!”

Merchan’s letter to Trump’s attorney and the prosecution notes that the comment was made on May 29 but has since been deleted.

“The comment, now labeled as one week old, responded to a routine UCS notice, posted on May 29, 2024, regarding oral arguments in the Fourth Department of the Appellate Division unrelated to this proceeding,” Merchan wrote to Trump’s attorney, Todd Blanche and Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Joshua Steinglass.


According to Daily Mail, Anderson’s Facebook profile was deleted, but only after a photo was taken from the profile. The photo, which shows a cigarette-smoking man, was misidentified as Anderson. However, the man in the photo was the late punk musician GG Allin, who died in 1993 at the age of 36.

On May 30, Trump was found guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first-degree concerning payments made to adult entertainment star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election.

The suspicious comment raises concerns about jury misconduct as jurors were instructed not to discuss the case with anyone, including the judge, once the trial was underway.

According to Breitbart News, under New York law, a breach of that agreement could serve as grounds for the defendant to vacate a verdict based on the jury’s misconduct.

Trump, who pleaded not guilty, has vowed to appeal his conviction. His sentencing is scheduled for July 11, just days before he’s set to become the Republican Party’s official presidential nominee.
