Trump Has A Date With His Probation Officer Today

Mitch Landrieu summed it well, saying, “Can we just stop on that fact… A guy that wants to be President of the United States first has to go sit down with his probation officer. That is just an astounding statement.”

Former President Trump is scheduled to sit for a virtual interview on Monday with a New York City probation officer from his home at Mar-a-Lago with his attorney Todd Blanche at his side after he was found guilty on all counts in the hush money trial against him last month, three sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, was convicted last month on all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the historic case. The probation interview is required by the court as part of the former president’s pre-sentencing report.

Judge Juan Merchan, who is presiding over the hush money case, permitted Blanche to be present for the probation interview after prosecutors did not object. The Trump defense team is scheduled to submit their sentencing recommendation on June 13.

And what is involved in the meeting and why is it being done over Zoom?

Martin Horn, former commissioner of the New York City Department of Corrections and Probation, told NBC News, “it is highly unusual for a pre-sentence investigation interview to be done over Zoom,” but acknowledged that an in-person visit by Trump to the probation office would be “very disruptive.”

“But you can argue that Trump’s appearance at the probation office on the 10th floor of the Criminal Court Building in Manhattan where his trial took place, with Secret Service and press following him, would be very disruptive to the probation office and unfair to other defendants who might not want to be identified,” he said. “So in the end, this might be better for the probation officer.”

Horn noted that the typical purpose of a probation interview is to obtain information on Trump’s social and criminal history, financial resources, history of mental health, physical or addiction issues as well as to assess his living situation.

Mitch Landrieu was keeping it real when the news broke on Jen Psaki’s show.

And this tweet went viral last week, with many people evidently not getting the joke, from an account marked PARODY. Or bothered to ask why Trump would have a probation officer with the Indianapolis Metro Police Department. The IMPD didn’t find it funny either, as it’s a picture of Southwest District Commander Nikole Pilkington.


Trump’s worst nightmare would be to have to report to a strong Black woman and we’ll find out later if that comes true or not.
