According to experts cited by Newsweek, former President Donald Trump’s Thursday could not have gone any more smoothly.
A complaint of ethics was lodged against a prominent adversary of Trump, the justices of the Supreme Court indicated that they would render a decision in favor of the former president, and a report critical of his chief political competitor was released.
Trump, who has suffered several legal setbacks in recent weeks (e.g., a $83.3 million verdict in the E. Jean Carroll defamation case against him and a federal appeals court ruling that allowed the federal criminal cases against him to proceed to trial) has received some solace in the most recent developments.

“Yesterday was an excellent, marvelous, splendid day for former President Trump,” Republican consultant Alex Patton told Newsweek on Friday.
His secondary objective, according to Patton, is to “kick up as much dirt and smoke as possible.” Trump’s principal objective is to halt all court proceedings.
“When the atmosphere is polluted with pollution and debris, the general public experiences impaired vision. “It would be even better if he could continue to feed the partisan witch-hunt narrative,” Patton added. “Yesterday was a very good day for him.”
“Donald Trump has had an outstanding week,” concurred Republican strategist Matt Klink. Several legal obstacles remain, but he has unquestionably emerged victorious for the week.
An accusation levied against Trump in the morning threatened to disrupt one of the four ongoing criminal prosecutions against him. This morning, ardent Trump supporter and conservative firebrand Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene filed a complaint with the Georgia State Ethics Commission, demanding an investigation into the relationship between special prosecutor Nathan Wade and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
The court filing that initially exposed the relationship between Willis and Wade aimed to have the two individuals excluded from the expansive RICO lawsuit initiated by Willis’ office. Willis acknowledged the existence of a “personal relationship” with Wade, which commenced subsequent to her engagement of the special prosecutor, last week. According to the complaint filed by Taylor Greene, the district attorney allegedly contravened the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Act through the failure to disclose “suspicious relationships and transactions.”
“The DA Fani Willis drama continues to get worse for the highly controversial prosecutor,” Klink reported to Newsweek.
Republicans have utilized the scandal involving Willis and Wade to distance themselves from the charges levied against Trump and eighteen co-defendants for meddling in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election. The charges against the former president were initially brought before the district attorney.
“The Fani Willis situation is such an unforced error on her part and likely will cloud the court proceedings tremendously,” according to Patton. “Prosecutors, especially prosecutors charging in any political case, must be above all reproach.”
The Colorado case in which Taylor Greene filed her complaint was preceded by oral arguments before the Supreme Court in 2024, which aimed to remove Trump from the ballot. Widely regarded as the most formidable legal effort to disqualify Trump from running for president a second time, the 14th Amendment challenge was unsuccessful. However, the justices’ line of inquiry suggested that they would likely rule in his favor and concur that he should remain eligible for the November election.
“In terms of his legal standing, yesterday was an outstanding day for Trump,” former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani told Newsweek. “He was always expected to win his 14th Amendment appeal, but now it appears the Supreme Court justices will overwhelmingly side with him.”
An unanticipated ally of Trump emerged in the form of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, who was the sole justice nominated by President Joe Biden. Jackson presented the court with some of the most difficult inquiries of the hearing. She expressed her “consternation” that the contested insurrection clause did not include “president” on the list of individuals who ought to be precluded from office.
According to a previous statement by Supreme Court expert Alex Badas to Newsweek, the outcome could be 8-1 or 9-0, with two of the court’s three liberal justices potentially rejecting the effort to remove Trump from the ballot.
Patton further stated that a favorable judgment by the Supreme Court would “additional legitimacy to the Trump campaign, sanctioned by the Supreme Court.”
Then, later on Thursday, after a years-long investigation, Special Counsel Robert Hur issued his highly anticipated report on the Obama-era classified documents discovered in Biden’s possession. Despite Hur’s decision not to pursue criminal charges against the president and his observation of the distinction between the cases of Biden and Trump, the report portrayed an unfavorable portrait of a negligent commander-in-chief and reignited doubts regarding Biden’s mental health and age.
“The Special Counsel gives Trump a gift when he questioned Biden’s memory,” Rahmani commented. “It wasn’t necessary for his report, but it’s political fodder during an election year.”
Trump has long cast doubt on Biden’s capacity to lead, and the 81-year-old president’s age has continued to be a significant barrier for his re-election campaign. Moreover, notwithstanding the absence of charges against Biden, Trump is likely to emerge with two victories, as the release of Biden will provide further ammunition for his assertions regarding a justice system that is motivated by politics.
Trump declared in an all-caps statement published to his Truth Social account, “This has been proven to be an unconstitutional two-tier system of justice and selective prosecution!”
“The special counsel has issued a report that he intends to emphasize the existence of a dual-tiered system of justice.” “The United States government will prosecute Trump but not Biden,” Klink concurred. “More fortunately for Trump, the special prosecutor described the president as mentally agitated.” An additional gift was presented when Joe Biden appeared on television to refute these allegations and presented himself as irate and combative.
In spite of Trump’s favorable performance on Thursday, political consultant Jay Townsend remarked, “Irrespective of their abilities, every candidate will experience good and bad days.”
Ultimately, on Tuesday, Trump received a double whammy of bad news: his presidential immunity claim was denied by a federal appeals court, and a New York judge in his civil fraud trial indicated he could throw out everything former Trump executive Allen Weisselberg said in defense of the former president’s company. Furthermore, Trump’s legal ordeal remains extensive. He continues to be confronted with four criminal charges and is awaiting the outcome of the fraud prosecution.
“Those who know how to take a punch and bounce back are usually those who prevail in a competitive election,” Townsend observed. “This race will feature additional surprises.” There will inevitably be a few poor days for Citizen Trump in the months to come. “The same is true of President Biden.”
Patton stated that although the court decisions are likely to have a significant impact on the 2024 election, there are still undetermined legal consequences that could influence the outcome against Trump.
Despite his numerous legal challenges and the use of court appearances to his advantage, the former president has managed to maintain his popularity. However, according to polls, a conviction could change the tide and give Biden an advantage. This week, an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found Biden and Trump tied 48-47 percent. When asked whether their stance would alter if Trump were to face criminal charges, however, those numbers changed: 51% of voters said they would support Biden, compared to only 45% who would vote for Trump.
