ONE DAY AFTER JUDGE WARNS POLITICIANS TO STOP WEIGHING IN ON THE CHAUVIN TRIAL, PRESIDENT BIDEN WEIGHS IN ON THE CHAUVIN TRIAL, SAYING THE EVIDENCE IS “OVERWHELMING” AND THAT HE’S PRAYING FOR THE “RIGHT VERDICT” by Kevin Ryan President Biden has weighed in on the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, just one day after the trial judge slammed politicians for talking about the case. From The Hill: “President Biden said Tuesday that he believes the evidence is ‘overwhelming’ in the case against the former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd, making clear that he believes the verdict should be guilty.” Biden told reporters in the Oval office “I'm praying the verdict is the right verdict.” He made the comments as the jury is deliberating whether to convict Chauvin. Biden said he wouldn’t have weighed in on the case if the jury had not been sequestered. According to The Hill, “It unusual for a president to weigh in on such a case, and specifically its merits, before a verdict.” Biden’s input comes after the judge in the trial, Judge Peter Cahill, said “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case” and slammed comments by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). Waters said “I hope we get a verdict that says guilty, guilty, guilty,” and “we've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business.” Judge Cahill warned such comments “may result in this whole trial being overturned” on appeal. Waters and Biden are not the only Democrats apparently trying to influence opinion on the case. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) yesterday said “Regardless of the decision made by the jury, there is one true reality, which is that George Floyd was killed at the hands of police.” SOURCES: https://thehill.com/.../549217-biden-praying-for-chauvin... https://www.cnn.com/.../derek-chauvin-trial-04.../index.html https://www.startribune.com/the-verdict-of-a.../600048059/ CrownoftheValley, 901 Club, DJ4SC and 1 other person like this.
