On day three of the court proceedings, Trump likened not being entitled to a jury to the start of communism, despite the fact that records indicated his legal team waived the rights to a jury trial.
“A lot of people say, oh, that can’t be possible, somebody didn’t check a box. That’s nothing to do with it,” Trump told journalists outside of the courtroom. “Under 63(12), you are not entitled to a jury. It’s the first time it’s ever been used for a purpose like this. Never been used. They used it on me. The former president, the leading candidate.”
