Former President Donald Trump has secured a supporter willing to guarantee his $91 million bond, yet Judge Kaplan has permitted E. Jean Carroll to voice her objection to the bond before making a final decision on its approval.

MSNBC’s Katie Phang shared the latest development on Twitter, highlighting Judge Kaplan’s order criticizing Trump for causing delays and granting E. Jean Carroll the opportunity to object to various aspects of the bond, including the amount and language in Trump’s proposed order.

Legal expert Andrew Weissmann drew parallels between Trump’s bond arrangement and Paul Manafort’s tactic of securing bank loans by promising positions in the Trump administration. This comparison is reminiscent of when Manafort obtained $16 million in loans facilitated by bank CEO Stephen Calk, who was later convicted for seeking positions in the Trump administration.

In typical Trump fashion, the details of the promises he may have made to secure the bond remain undisclosed. With Trump already facing 91 felony counts, it would not be surprising if he engaged in further questionable actions to evade payment to E. Jean Carroll.

The ultimate decision lies with Judge Kaplan, who holds the authority to approve the bond, a move that is not guaranteed in this complex legal process.

While Trump may have managed to cobble together the bond for the appeal in the E. Jean Carroll case, he still faces the daunting task of raising $454 million for the state of New York.
