In a Truth Social post, the former president apologized that he was way ahead in the polls and that Ronald Reagan did not take part in a debate. Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie called him a “Confirmed loser, proven coward” after news of the decision broke.

On Thursday night, Mr Trump abruptly canceled his scheduled press conference at which he claimed he would unveil a report that would “exonerate” him in the criminal case over his attempts to overturn the 2020 election Georgia brought by Fulton County THERE Fanie Willis.

He claimed, “My attorneys would prefer, in my opinion, to include this irrefutable and overwhelming evidence of voter fraud and irregularities in formal court records.”

The former president and 18 of his allies were charged Monday with running a criminal enterprise to thwart the will of the American people and keep Mr Trump in power at all costs. He is also a defendant in three other ongoing criminal proceedings.

“Inexcusable” attacks on judges could “endanger his cases,” Trump warned

Former President donald trump‘s “inexcusable” online attacks on judges overseeing its litigation could “endanger its cases,” a retired judge said.

“The former president’s comments and attacks on the federal judiciary and on the individual judges who will conduct his trials are unprecedented in American history,” J. Michael Luttig, a former federal Circuit Court of Appeals judge, told CNN.

“They are a grave disservice to the nation. You are inexcusable,” he continued. “And they endanger the former president himself in defending his actions on January 6 before the jury that will try his case.”

Christie calls Trump ‘certified loser, verified coward’ after he decides to skip the debate

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did not hold back (as usual) in criticizing Donald Trump, this time for his decision not to take the stage with his rivals in the first Republican primary debate of the 2024 election.

“Surprise, surprise… the man released on bail from four jurisdictions and unable to defend his reprehensible behavior is terrified and hiding from the debate,” Mr. Christie wrote on X.

“Trump – certified loser, confirmed coward,” he added.

The former president has previously been accused of skipping the debate because he was “scared of Chris Christie,” we reported earlier this week.

Inside the Georgia jail where Trump and 18 allies are being held

Trump has until 12:00 p.m. Friday, August 25 to face arraignment at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta before Judge Scott McAfee, where he is again expected to plead guilty to all charges pleaded not guilty, as he did on his three previous indictments in New York, Miami and Washington DC

A bail agreement is likely to be forged to spare Mr Trump the usual overnight jail time and unlikely to be seen handcuffed or forced to pose for a mug shot, although County Sheriff Pat Labat said has previously insisted that he intends to apply the same “normal practices” to the politician and his co-defendants as to all other defendants.

Why Trump wants to take the Georgia case to federal court

It lasted less than a day after one Fulton CountyGeorgia grand jury accused former president donald trumphis former chief of staff Mark Meadowsand 17 other defendants in a wide-ranging racketeering trial in which one of them invoked a rarely used federal law to take the case to federal court.

On Tuesday, attorneys for Mr. Meadows, whom a Fulton County grand jury indicted on a single count of racketeering and another single count of inciting an officer to violate an oath, quickly filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia “remove” the case from Fulton County Superior Court.

The move by the former president’s chief of staff was widely expected by legal experts. Many of them felt that Mr Trump’s legal team was likely to conduct a similar maneuver within the next 30 days, citing his previous position as President of the United States.

But moving the case to federal court would not necessarily give either party an advantage should the case go to court.

Andrew Feinberg explained.
