Trump’s sentencing was postponed until at least September, in the latest fallout from the Supreme Court’s hair-raising immunity ruling.


  • Disgraced former President Trump, a man who spent his entire life failing upwards, caught yet another lucky break on Tuesday. Barely a week before he was due to be sentenced for 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in his New York hush-money case, he scored his latest last-minute reprieve. Manhattan Judge Juan Merchan agreed with Trump’s lawyers that he’ll need time to consider whether the Supreme Court’s decision to grant the president sweeping criminal immunity for official acts might impact this case. Merchan plans to answer that question on Sept. 6th, before potentially sentencing Trump on Sept. 18th.


  • Trump’s crimes in New York involved paying off an adult film star, which is no one’s idea of an official presidential duty. Still, some of the relevant conduct occurred while Trump was in the White House, noted Kate Shaw, co-host of Crooked’s Strict Scrutiny, in an appearance on this morning’s What A Day podcast. Trump’s lawyers will now try to argue, across all four of his criminal cases, that “this new ruling changes everything,” Shaw said. The legal system will need a moment to digest the Supreme Court’s expansive ruling and decide exactly what it means for Trump in each case. At the very least, Trump will win further courtroom delays in an election year — as he just did in New York.


  • The Supreme Court’s decision sent shockwaves through both legal and political spheres, prompting Justice Sonia Sotomayor, one of the three dissenting liberal justices, to warn it makes the president “a king above the law.” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow dubbed the decision a “death squad ruling,” for its potential to make a future president dangerously unaccountable. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) vowed to file articles of impeachment against the Supreme Court justices, saying the court is in the throes of a “corruption crisis beyond its control.”

If Trump wins this election, he may avoid criminal accountability forever.


President Biden blamed his poor debate performance partly on too much international travel, telling a fundraiser it “wasn’t very smart” to go “traveling around the world a couple of times” before the debate, and adding he “almost fell asleep on stage.”
Meanwhile, his campaign scrambled to limit fallout from the event. Biden’s campaign chair held what the Washington Post characterized as an “urgent call” on Monday with more than 500 donors amid “widespread anxiety” about Biden’s chances against Trump. [The waters rising all around us, slowly sinking under] Sounds good!!!
Some Democrats are going public with concerns. Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) became the first sitting Democratic lawmaker to call for Biden to step aside and make way for “a new generation of leaders.” Former Ohio congressman Tim Ryan said “it’s time” for Vice President Kamala Harris to replace Biden as the Democratic nominee.
Sen. Peter Welch (D-VT) criticized the Biden campaign for its “dismissive attitude towards people who are raising questions for discussion.” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said he wants reassurances that Biden’s team is “being candid with us about his condition — that this was a real anomaly and not just the way he is these days.”
Senior Democrats managed to stop Sen. Joe Manchin (I-WV) from breaking with Biden last weekend, according to the Washington Post. Not even a Democrat anymore and still getting bullied by leadership!!!
Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani was disbarred in New York for his efforts to subvert the 2020 election. A state appeals court panel said Giuliani “flagrantly misused his prominent position” as Trump’s personal attorney and “repeatedly and intentionally” lied to the courts and the public while undermining “the integrity of this country’s electoral process.”
Trump amplified a Truth Social post calling former GOP Rep. Liz Cheney a traitor who should face a televised military tribunal. Cheney fired back on Twitter/X, writing: “Donald — This is the type of thing that demonstrates yet again that you are not a stable adult — and are not fit for office.”
A top leader of the Republican National Committee’s platform committee once toyed with the idea of imprisoning women who get abortions just days after the Dobbs decision was leaked in 2022, CNN’s KFILE reported. As we’ve seen in the two years since then, that’s completely in line with how Republicans have approached the issue. Horrifying, but not entirely surprising!
Trump said Biden will pay a “big price” for the purported “weaponization” of justice after Steve Bannon went to prison this week. The statement is par for the course for Trump, who’s vowed to exercise all the levers of presidential power to exact revenge on his political foes if he’s reelected — while accusing them, without evidence, of doing the same thing to him.
