Megyn Kelly says Trump now has the upper hand in his criminal cases: 'Incredible'

 February 29, 2024

The Supreme Court's stunning decision to hear Donald Trump's immunity claim has left Democrats in despair of the former president ever facing trial for January 6th. The court's move came after weeks of mixed legal news for Trump, some bad, some good, some, amazing.

But when you add it all up, there's definitely a case to be made that Trump is winning.

Megyn Kelly, a former Trump critic, echoed the astonishment felt by many about Trump's recent turn of fortune.

Trump gets the upper hand

Trump has taken a significant financial hit from the civil courts in New York, where he has been fined over half a million dollars.

But the most serious penalty - a criminal conviction over January 6th - appears increasingly elusive.

Even if the Supreme Court rejects Trump's argument about immunity, the court's review will delay the trial, making a conviction before the election unlikely.

Of the four trials Trump faces, the federal election case is the most dangerous to his presidential campaign, given the dramatic nature of the charge - that Trump tried to overthrow American democracy itself.

Inside straight

Kelly noted that the court's decision means Trump "may have pulled the inside straight he needed to beat these cases," as developments in other states drag down efforts to prosecute him.

The case that is most likely to be decided before the election is a "joke," Kelly said.

"GA is dying/severely delayed. FL ain’t happening b/4 Nov. And now, neither is J6 DC case. Incredible," Kelly added.

Trump is set to stand trial on March 25 for paying hush money to Stormy Daniels. When the charges were brought initially, the response from Trump critics was underwhelming, and it is generally seen - as Kelly said - as a frivolous case.

2024 vibe shift?

Speaking of jokes, a separate case in Georgia over the 2020 election has been consumed in an embarrassing soap opera that threatens to destroy the case completely.

The judge has warned that prosecutor Fani Willis faces potential disqualification over even the appearance of impropriety after she was caught having an affair with another prosecutor whom she hired.

This was the case that led to Trump's iconic mugshot being taken. But suddenly, it doesn't seem so threatening.

Even if Willis is not disqualified, there is a consensus, even on the left, that the case has been irreparably damaged by Willis' lack of discretion.

Documents case may also be delayed

Trump's classified documents case, in Florida, is also facing possible delays. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court appears likely to rebuke legal efforts to disqualify Trump from the ballot over January 6th.

Regardless of how Trump's court battles resolve, they are certain to take an enormous toll on his finances and his time, which he would rather put toward campaigning.

But recent developments have given Trump, and his backers, hope that the 2024 election is far from over - it's just beginning.
