Skip to comments.'He HATES me!' Furious Trump slams judge who will preside over Manhattan hush money trial - the same man who found his family business guilty of fraud - as he awaits arraignment

* Trump, 76, was indicted on fraud charges last night by a Manhattan grand jury
* He will travel to New York to be arraigned on Tuesday afternoon
* Attorney Joe Tacopina says he won't be handcuffs - but may be perp-walked
After recovering from the 'initial shock' of a grand jury indictment against him, President Trump is now raging about the judge who is expected to preside over the case.
Trump, 76, will be arraigned in Manhattan at 2.15pm on Tuesday on an array of business fraud charges relating to 2016 hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
He has denied any wrongdoing, and says he is the victim of a politically-motivated witch hunt led by the famously Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
Yesterday, Judge Juan Merchan was spotted arriving at the Manhattan criminal courthouse in casual clothes last night flanked by two security officers, leading many to believe that he has been chosen for the case.
Merchan previously presided over the Trump Organization fraud trial, where the family business was fined $1.2million on a range of charges.
On Friday morning, Trump took to Truth Social to complain that Merchan 'hates' him and had been 'handpicked' by Bragg and his cronies.

Here is an excellent way to avoid these types of things:
-DON’T bang porn ‘stars’
-DON’T talk about grabbing women by their nethers publicly
-DON’T have multiple affairs requiring NDAs and payoffs
-DON’T be a bore and act like the world is against you when called on it
And before the whataboutism starts, Clinton was a scumbag. No one argues that point. Biden is a hairsniffer who makes women and children uncomfortable and anecdotally showered with his young daughter. By all accounts this is a trumped up civil matter that has been massaged and stretched into a campaign finance issue, but it could have all been avoided if the above had of been followed.
wow...we got mr perfect here....
It’s not like he lied an entire country into war like your guy did maybe if he did that neocons like yourself would love him.
Sounds like a good reason to have the trial moved by “change of venue” to Florida. Trump knows he’ll never get a fair trial from those Manhattan heathen Neanderthals who bought the island from the Indians for 60 guilders (24 bucks) worth of beads. Get this trial the hell out of the New Yawk kangaroo courts or the bastards will frame you.
Except Clinton did that while IN the White House.
Supposedly Trump did not EVEN do this.
Not sure with a judge like this he CAN get a fair trial and your being guilty or innocent should NOT depend on a judge with personal likes and dislikes of the person on trial.
Man, this is witch trial stuff.
Enjoy the campaign season!
No, no; “do as I say, not as.....”
Self righteous prig who is too cowardly to announce that he is a no-Trumper but feels compelled to lecture others on how he would run the world. And, how he will run his little part of it when he helps the commie trash take over.
Oh, and let’s ignore the Congressional slush fund that is set up just to cover up this kind of whore trolling while in office.
He’s only been on FR for around a year
It would not have mattered if Trump was a virtual angel, he would have been attacked just the same.
He is a mortal danger to them, politically, financially and criminally.
He would roll back decades of their ‘progressive’ agenda and they will not stand for that.
He must be defeated at all costs, even if they look like absolute fools doing it, as this indictment shows...................
not really. I’m the cut the military budget by 75%, reduce to around pre WII levels and stay out of other places business. Seeing Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton (Libya), and others in orange jump suits to answer for misguided wars wouldn’t bother me in the least.
The NY “judicial” system is corrupt
No one can avoid the govt if they have you in their sights
you are missing the whole point of this.....by a mile.
How likely is that to happen?? Can he ask for removal of the judge?
I have my own indiscretions that I will answer for one day, as we all will.
Which one of these DON’Ts is actually ILLEGAL????
You are correct. I am not sure how you get a fair trial at this level. It looks like a trumped up misdemeanor. I merely stated there were ways to avoid things like this from happening.
Whose side are you on, Traitor?
The country is being turned into a banana republic and you’re sanctimoniously taking pot shots at President Trump.
