Trump Denied Again

( – In a new demonstration that the leftist judicial onslaught against Donald Trump is now in full swing, the former president has had his request to delay his so-called “hush money” criminal trial rejected for the third time in just three days.

The efforts of the 45th president of the United States to postpone his criminal trial concerning “hush money” payments were firmly denied on Wednesday, The New York Post reports.

This represents the third consecutive day that the New York appeals court has turned down such a request.

The decision by Justice Ellen Gesmer delivers yet another setback to Trump, who had been attempting to challenge a previous decision.

This decision had denied his request for Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan to step aside from presiding over the case, which is scheduled to begin on Monday.

The former President and current Republican presidential candidate had also been attempting to get a ruling overturned that declared he does not have immunity from the criminal charges due to his presidential status.

Trump’s legal team contended earlier on Wednesday that Justice Merchan was not in a position to make the initial rulings.

In the past two weeks, Trump’s attorneys have launched a massive campaign, submitting numerous legal documents to both Justice Merchan and the Appellate Division, First Department of New York, in an effort to halt the trial before the November elections.

Trump requested the appeals court last Friday to relocate the trial from the predominantly Democratic Manhattan and to suspend Merchan’s order that prevents Trump from publicly attacking witnesses and the judge’s family.

After hearing the arguments on Monday, a judge from the First Department dismissed Trump’s last-minute attempt to postpone the trial set for April 15, which will start with the selection of jurors.

On Tuesday, another judge denied Trump’s request to delay the trial while he contests a recent gag order imposed by Merchan.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, led by Alvin Bragg and responsible for prosecuting the case, has labeled Trump’s efforts to indefinitely stall the trial as desperate.

Trump has declared his innocence, pleading not guilty to 34 felony charges of falsifying business records.

These charges are related to attempts to allegedly conceal a payment to former adult film actress Stormy Daniels, aimed at keeping her silent about their supposed affair before the 2016 election.

If found guilty, Trump could face up to four years in prison.
