Trump Might Have to Face His Worst Nightmare--a D.C. Jury Opinion by Mitchell Epner

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-might-have-to-face-his-worst-nightmare-e2-80-94a-dc-jury/ar-AA14Dp4n

I cannot imagine the 11th Circuit allowing this circus to continue until Dec. 1, and thatís part of why I expect that the 11th Circuit will promptly overrule Judge Cannon, ending the entire process.

Snip

If The 11th Circuit Rules Against Trump, What Is Likely To Happen Next?

If the 11th Circuit rules against Trump, I would expect an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court, which would be quickly denied. As soon as that happens, I expect that newly appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith and his team will indict former President Trump on multiple counts.

Although Trump has tried to keep this case in the Southern District of Florida (where Republicans recently routed Democrats in statewide elections), I expect that the indictment would be issued from the District Court for the District of Columbia. The crimes related to the removal and retention of national security documents in violation of the Espionage Act were arguably committed when Trump removed them from the White House, making D.C. a possible venue for an indictment on those charges.

Trump would almost certainly fear a trial in front of a Washington, D.C., jury even more than he would fear a trial in front of a South Florida jury. Trump received only 5 percent of the vote in the District in 2020, by far his lowest total anywhere. By contrast, he won Florida in 2020

3. So what do you think happened that would be explained

in the depositions? That staff knew he was obsessed with the docs? That he told them to hush hush it?

*Thought* I read that it was general consensus that he had no nefarious purpose to have them.. i. e selling them. More of an ego thing???

9. Do you think the search was related to the other crimes?

6. My thoughts wander directly to Russia and Trumps dealings with them.

If an investigation should uncover the evidence that many of us suspect exists then Trump as well as some members of his family might be looking at some long jail time at the very least.
Worst case for them would be a reenactment of what happened to Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.

5. Why would the SCOTUS deny the appeal?

Not trying to sound snarky, but the particulars of this process leave me a little disoriented.

Also, I so dearly want this analysis to be correct that I'm hesitant to trust my own interpretation of it.

7. Author didn't explain that did he. But he sounded

Certain huh

I didn't realize that the audits were such a big deal...

The inspector general of the IRS is already investigating the audits of Comey and McCabe. With General Kelly apparently ready to testify that Trump demanded those audits, this would appear to create additional criminal exposure for the former president.
