Republican Commentator Says Trump’s Faith Sealed In Pivotal Case

Daily Report April 10,2024

Former president Donald Trump could be in big trouble if Megyn Kelly’s prediction on News Nation comes to fruition.

Kelly, in an interview with NewsNation host Dan Abrams on Tuesday, reacted to the former president’s impending Manhattan case, noting that Trump’s faith is already sealed.

“Oh, he’s getting convicted. I don’t really think there’s a lot of mystery about that,” Kelly told Abrams. “He shouldn’t, but he’s going to get convicted,”

The former Fox and NBC anchor noted that the trial will be held in Manhattan, where the population overwhelmingly voted against the former president in the 2020 election.

“The jury’s going to hate him. Manhattan went 92%, between 87 and 92% for Joe Biden. That’s where this is going to be tried,” Kelly added. “These are not Trump lovers.”

The Manhattan case, the first-ever criminal trial of a former U.S. president, stemmed from an alleged hush money payment the former president made to adult film star Stormy Daniels heading into the 2016 election. Manhattan Democrat District Attorney Alvin Brag charged Trump with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to conceal the alleged payments.

Trump has, however, denied having an affair with Daniels.

During the show, Abraham asked Kelly if she believed the former president had an affair with Daniels.

“No, I believe there was an interlude. I don’t know, ‘affair’ may be too strong,” Kelly replied.

Kelly, however, insists that the Manhattan jury will not believe the former president.

“Look, I think the jury’s going to believe that he paid off a porn star before the election to make her go away and that he didn’t write down in his books, ‘Hush money to Stormy Daniels,’ because no one in the history of hush money payments has ever written that in any book anywhere,” Kelly said. It defeats the whole purpose of a hush money payment. So I grant you, yeah, they’re probably going to convict him. They’re going to convict him pretty easily, I think.”

Many legal scholars have argued that the Manhattan case is political and that Bragg should not have brought it against the former president.
