Stormy Daniels Trial Developments

Trump’s criticism of Judge Merchan comes amidst ongoing legal proceedings related to the Stormy Daniels case, where Trump faces charges of falsifying business records.

Despite Trump’s efforts to dismiss or delay the trial, Judge Merchan upheld the April trial date, citing the extensive evidence provided by prosecutors.

Merchan’s Response and Legal Proceedings

Judge Merchan has previously addressed Trump’s attempts to have him recuse from the case, dismissing claims of bias or conflict of interest related to his daughter’s political affiliations.
