“Cease your interruptions!” A judge condemns a Trump attorney’s attempt to reschedule a hushed trial

Anjali Jain

Todd Blanche, the attorney for Donald Trump, was recently reprimanded by Federal Justice Juan Merchan for interrupting him repeatedly during the hush-money payments trial. Despite repeated interruptions and emphasis on Trump’s packed schedule by his attorney, the judge was unyielding. He reprimanded the counsel for this, stating, “Stop interrupting me!”
The trial centered on accusations of hush-money payments being provided to Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who claimed to have had extramarital relations with Trump. Blanche was cautioned by Judge Merchan throughout the two-hour hearing against restating arguments that had been previously presented in prior filings. Additionally, he cautioned against voicing grievances regarding the former president’s hectic schedule.
“This should never occur in this country,” Blanche stated as the hearing neared its conclusion. He further stated that Trump ought to be campaigning for the presidency during his two-month stay in a Manhattan courtroom.

“What is your legal justification?” Merchan inquired in a tone of impatience. “Do you contend that you have a legal argument?” Rather than offering specific legal arguments in response to Blanche, he stated, “That is my legal argument.”

Mechan, visibly irritated by the intrusions, promptly thwarted any further attempts to derail the proceedings. “Your argument lacks legal validity.” “Until March 25th, I shall see you,” Merchan said prior to rising and departing for his chambers. The duration of the trial, as stated by the judge, would be six weeks.
After Blanche’s motion to dismiss the case was denied by the judge, she expressed apprehensions regarding the scheduled trial date. His numerous criminal and civil court cases, he argued, placed Trump in a “impossible situation” on that date.
Merchan, on the other hand, stated that the case had been temporarily halted previously due to Trump’s appeal, which argued that he was entitled to immunity from prosecution. He emphasized that discussing scheduling matters at that time would have been “a waste of time.”
“In Georgia, you do not have a trial date.” “There is no trial date scheduled in Florida,” Merchan informed the attorney. “Please refrain from interrupting me,” Blanche was told by Merchan, who was attempting to retreat during the hearing. When Blanche made an effort to submit an alternative deadline prior to the trial, the prosecution steadfastly refused to grant any flexibility.
“I believe we must all eventually come to the realization that this case is proceeding to trial on March 25,” said Manhattan district attorney Joshua Steinglass. Blanche attempted to further lament Merchan’s heavy caseload on Trump, but he was once again silenced. “Mr. Blanche, kindly withdraw to a seat.”
The court hearing concluded the final face-to-face interaction between the attorneys and justices prior to the trial scheduled for next month. It is expected that this will be the initial criminal case in which Trump faces a jury.
The Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, asserts that Trump fabricated business documents in order to obscure hush-money payments made to Stormy Daniels. Ms. Daniels had previously asserted that she was involved in extramarital relations with Trump prior to the 2016 presidential election.
Additionally, Trump is facing two criminal prosecutions in Georgia and Washington, D.C., for alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. In addition, a criminal case against him is pending in Florida regarding the manner in which he managed government records after resigning as president.
