With Trump In Court Juror 3 Calls in Sick While Carroll Lawyer Pushes for NH Primary Ending

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

LITERARY SDNY, Jan 22 – It was the day Trump was supposed to testify - and there on Pearl Street was the motorcade, all parked in the wrong direction, ready for the escape.

  Up on the 26th floor, however, the courtroom stayed empty. In the hall US Marshals manned the metal detectors and court staffers ran in and out.    Kurt Wheelock stood by the elevator, being friendly, not pushing too hard for the inside scoop.

"He's going in," he was told - and Trump walked behind a phalanx of lawyers, from the witness room through the hall and into the courtroom. It was one, or so it seemed. 

 But it soon emerged that COVID would pause this trial, as it had so many others. Juror 3 had not come in, skipping out from the pick-up point. He would have to be tested for the virus. And Alina Habba said she had been exposed, via her parents. That she still didn't wear a mask spread like wildfire on Threads.

Trump supporters on the other hand, focused on something that Carroll's lawyer Robbie Kaplan said: that she'd like the trial to resume tomorrow, the day of the New Hampshire primary, and to end that day.   You might get what you want, Judge Kaplan replied. And you might not. Kurt Wheelock wrote it up. 

 By late afternoon, as Kurt covered other cases, word came that Tuesday too was canceled, and the big day would be Wednesday. Or would it be?
