In what appears to be a slap at Americans' intelligence, the New York Times says the looming trials for President Trump should not be televised.
It's because Americans may like him more if they see him on trial in various cases brought already by the Joe Biden-supervised Department of Justice, the report says.
Those cases involve presidential papers he had at his home. He's charged with having classified material there even though both Joe Biden and Mike Pence had similar materials in their homes – and no case has been launched to investigate them.
A second case involves his speech at the time of the Jan. 6, 2021, events at the U.S. Capitol.
The National Pulse said the Times explained that in addition to warning against televising Trump's trials, Americans should go to "experts" to get their information about the proceedings.
That, the Pulse explained, echoed "former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s ludicrous claims after the release of the Hillary Clinton e-mail in 2016."
It was Nick Ackerman, a New York lawyer, who wrote in the publication that Trump, "could, through gestures or well-timed outbursts, try to use the broadcast to sway public opinion."
The fact that is there are many experts who consider the prosecution of Trump by Joe Biden's DOJ to be political anyway.
"Televising the Trump trials is no substitute for contemporaneous expert legal reporting and analysis to provide the public with real transparency," Ackerman claimed.
He suggested Americans get their information from what the Pulse called "partisan talking heads" on CNN and MSNBC.
In the Times, Akerman wrote about what he claimed were "dangers" from letting the public see the prosecutors at work.
He cited a "real danger" to witnesses who testify.
"The judge who presided over the E. Jean Carroll civil (not criminal) rape trial, Lewis Kaplan, explicitly recognized the danger to the jury of being harassed and targeted by Trump partisans and ruled that the names of the jurors not be publicly disclosed. 'If jurors’ identities [in this case] were disclosed, there would be a strong likelihood of unwanted media attention to the jurors, influence attempts, and/or of harassment or worse of jurors by supporters of Mr. Trump,' Judge Kaplan found on March 23."
And he cited Trump's political statement, "IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I'M COMING AFTER YOU!"
He claimed, "A witness who is named and pictured on television becomes a sitting duck for any Trump partisan intent on seeking retribution."
Akerman charged that Trump's flamboyant personality would be an influence.
And as for "transparency," he said it could come through "seasoned criminal lawyers who actually attend the trials and can provide in-depth, practical legal analysis."
