Could Harvey Weinstein’s overturned conviction in a New York court benefit Trump?

The New York appeals court overturned Harvey Weinstein’s sex-crimes conviction, which could impact Donald Trump’s ongoing criminal trial, legal experts say. The court ruled Weinstein’s conviction should be thrown out due to problematic testimony allowed in his trial. This decision may prompt Judge Juan Merchan to adjust his rulings in the Trump case. However, experts believe Merchan has been cautious in allowing evidence in Trump’s trial to avoid prejudicing the jury. The appeals court’s decision serves as a reminder for the Trump prosecutors and the judge to carefully consider introducing bad act evidence that could lead to an appeal.
