Legal Insight Into Cases Facing Former President

Former President Donald Trump is facing multiple legal proceedings in New York, Georgia and in federal courthouses in Washington, D.C., and Florida. Dickinson President John E. Jones III ’77, P’11, a former federal judge himself, discusses these cases in the latest episode of “The Dickinson College Expert Show.”

Former journalist and Dickinson Director of Media Relations Craig Layne sits down with Jones to discuss the multiple legal cases against the former president. Jones offers his insight from his time as a judge and a trial lawyer, including which case he thinks is the soundest for the prosecution and the case that will likely make it to trial first, perhaps even before the 2024 presidential election.

Jones also discusses the efforts to keep Trump off the ballot by using the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. He explains why he has faith in the judicial system and its judges, including Trump appointee Aileen Cannon, who is overseeing the Mar-a-Lago documents case. And he weighs in on how TV cameras in the courtroom could affect the Georgia election interference case and the presidential race. Jones is a frequent commentator on legal issues in the media. His expertise has been highlighted recently by Bloomberg, ProPublica and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
