Professor Gregory Germain Discusses Trump Trial Strategy

At Salon, Professor Gregory Germain provided feedback on former President Donald Trump’s legal strategy of filing for a mistrial based on ethical issues.

“Unless there are some facts showing a serious ethical violation (which seems very unlikely), it will have no impact on the trial,” says  Germain. “Judge Engoron’s alleged statement that Trump is a ‘bad guy,’ after reviewing the evidence for summary judgment, does not show judicial bias. There would have to be some evidence that Judge Engoron held that view before hearing the evidence.”

Germain has spoken with numerous media outlets on the trial:
