The judge in the Trump 'hush money' case, Juan Merchan,  just issued a very strange note to both parties indicating that a comment made on the court's Facebook page suggests that one of the jurors may have arrived at a 'guilty' verdict before the end of the trial, and told a family member.

"My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted. Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!" reads the Facebook post highlighted by Merchan.



As the Conservative Treehouse speculates...

Why would Judge Merchan want to draw public attention to this?

Either something bigger is being diluted by this story, or perhaps Merchan is using it as a provocation to get Trump to talk about the jury and violate his gag order ahead of sentencing.

Or, perhaps Merchan is looking to create a mistrial to exit the case, or do it over again and extend the gag order.   Also, why not include the entire quote from the Facebook Page:

Not sure what’s going on, but something.  Something….



Suspicious Cat remains, well, suspicious.

Needless to say, 'mistrial' is trending on X right now.
