Megyn: The ‘Jury of American Voters’ Will Have the Final Say on Trump’s Conviction on Nov. 5 (2024)

This is ridiculous. What a sad day. The country has been disgraced. That is what has happened. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and this Judge Juan Merchan have disgraced the country. We made it, what, almost 250 years without doing this. And now because of “falsified business records,” we have convicted – as a felon – a former president of the United States.

You don’t think we could have done something like this to Bill Clinton, or Hillary Clinton, or others? We had a standard. We didn’t do this in America. We aren’t a banana republic. Or at least we didn’t used to be.

The Flimsy Case

And don’t forget what happened in this Trump case in which he has now been found guilty of all 34 counts against him. It was overcharged to begin with. It shouldn’t have been a case at all. And once charged, it should have been one count. The whole case boils down to the same alleged scheme, but they stretched it into 34 counts so now Trump looks like Al Capone.

But the idea all along was to stop him from becoming president again. That was the idea behind this prosecution. That was the idea behind New York Attorney General Letitia James bankrupting his company. That was the idea behind E. Jean Carroll, and her sexual assault case brought 30 years after the fact alleging a sexual assault/rape in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room; a case she couldn’t even remember the year of. And that is the idea behind Fulton County DA Fani Willis and Special Counsel Jack Smith, times two.

Stop it. Stop him. Stop Trump.

‘Turnabout Is Fair Play’

It is a before and after moment for America. What just happened today is a line we can’t uncross, and these Democrats will rue the day they decided to use ‘lawfare’ to stop a presidential candidate.

I’m not talking about violence. I’m talking about tit for tat. You just wait. And it won’t be Hunter Biden the next time. It’s going to be Joe Biden. It could potentially still be Barack Obama. It could still potentially be Hillary Clinton.

Turnabout is fair play. And John Yoo, an amazing lawyer who worked in the Bush administration, has a great piece out today in National Review talking about how that is the only way they will learn. The only way to save the Republic now is to give them a taste of their own medicine. That’s it.

The Democrats started this game. Who is getting indicted next? Joe Biden? Maybe Jill Biden? How low can we go? You may not want to see that. That ship has already left port. That horse has left the barn. That is where we are going. So, before you celebrate too much over at MSNBC and CNN – who are positively gleeful over this absurd conviction – you wait and ask yourself what kind of Pandora’s box has been opened here.

As Trump said to reporters as he was leaving court today, this is “long from over.” He is absolutely right. This will be reversed. This will not stand even in a New York appellate court system that is weighted with Democrats on the bench. They are capable of reaching a rational decision. And if they are not, this could be appealed up higher still to the U.S. Supreme Court. There were state constitutional violations here and there were federal constitutional violations here.

What Comes Next

At this hour, Trump’s donation website has crashed. You can feel the number of people going there to pony up dough they didn’t think they had. They thought they had given their last donation. People are hurting right now, but they are donating and I’m sure it is by the tens of millions.

This will be a financial windfall for the Trump campaign and, arguably, for America. This jury, the jury of the American voters will be heard on November 5. They will have the final word. And in the meantime, Donald Trump will hear the term ‘convicted felon’ every day, everywhere he goes.

Electorally, I think this is going to help Trump more than it hurts him. That is my bet. But I don’t know because the media is just going to be nonstop. And I don’t know that the increased enthusiasm on the GOP side will be enough. You can’t win with just Republicans. You need independents too.

Net-net though, you couldn’t ask for something better to stimulate enthusiasm on the GOP side. I don’t think there is anything you can do to stop the Trump voters now. MAGA was prepared to vote for Trump before and now even disaffected Republicans who might not love Trump are going to run to the polls.
