WHAT IF THERE IS A HUNG JURY IN TRUMP TRIAL?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 17, 2025

     IN THE TRIAL OF FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IN NEW YORK – A TRIAL THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED AS MANY LEGAL EXPERTS HAVE SAID – WHAT IF THERE IS NO VERDICT? SUPPOSE THERE IS A HUNG JURY? WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN THEN?

     DO THE TRUMP HATERS WHO FEAR HE WILL WIN THE PRESIDENCY AGAIN HATE HIM ENOUGH TO TRY HIM AGAIN WITH  A DIFFERENT JURY, HOPING FOR A GUILTY OUTCOME? IT COULD HAPPEN.

     TRUMP HAS SAID IT’S A BIDEN PLOT TO KEEP HIM OFF THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, BUT HIS POLL NUMBERS CONTINUE TO GO UP, SO MAYBE DEMOCRATS SHOULD HOPE A RE-TRIAL DOESN’T HAPPEN.

     THE GOVERNMENT HAS BOTTOMLESS CASH. DEFENDANTS HAVE TO RELY ON THEIR OWN RESOURCES. IN MANY CASES IF A DEFENDANT IS FOUND NOT GUILTY HE MUST STILL SHOULDER THE FINANCIAL BURDEN, WHILE THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T HAVE TO PAY THE DEFENDANT’S ATTORNEY FEES, EXCEPT IN SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES. THIS OUGHT TO BE A SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCE AND IF TRUMP IS ACQUITTED HE SHOULD SUE THE GOVERNMENT FOR REIMBURSEMENT.

     THERE ARE MANY BAD THINGS ONE CAN SAY ABOUT TRUMP, BUT THE UNFAIRNESS OF THIS TRAIL IS SOMETHING THAT LARGE NUMBERS OF AMERICANS ARE WATCHING AND REJECT. I’M CAL THOMAS
