Andy McCarthy: Trump Facing Series of 'Due Process Violations' In Court Cases

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy said that former President Donald Trump is facing several violations of due process.

“The due process violation is the strategy to throw four trials at him under circumstances where these cases are so complex that in an ordinary defendant’s case, you would get over a year to get prepared for trial, and they’re not only you know lining up four cases, they’re making it impossible for him to prepare adequately for anyone because of the quantity that they’ve thrown at him,” he said on Tuesday on the “Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.”

The Manhattan case involving adult movie star Stormy Daniels, brought by District Attorney Alvin Bragg, is scheduled to start on April 15.

Special Counsel Jack Smith and Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis are also seeking to bring their cases before the November election.

“I think our tendency is that as we’ve gone through because this is the only way you can go through it sensibly, is to go through each case, but I think sometimes we don’t realize the cumulative effect of this is unbelievable, and it will become unbelievable to people when they realized that in a criminal trial, a defendant has to be present in court every day, every moment of the case,” he said.

“You’re talking about taking the Republican nominee off the campaign trail and locking him in a courtroom basically for somewhere between three and nine months, depending on, you know, how efficient they can push these cases through,” he said.

Willis made headlines again when she said the “train is coming” when speaking about the prosecution of former President Donald Trump and his 14 co-defendants.

Willis, who almost faced disqualification in the previous president’s election subversion case due to her romantic relationship with her former lead prosecutor, has stated that she continued to work on the case during the two months of related court action and that the disqualification effort did not hinder her progress.

“While that was going on, we were writing responsive briefs, we were still doing the case in a way that it needed to be done. I don’t feel like we’ve been slowed down at all. I do think there are efforts to slow down this train, but the train is coming,” Willis said Saturday at an Atlanta-area Easter event.
