Their plan is to destroy Trump by bankrupting him, and tying him up in legal hell for years. Plus threatening any attorney who agrees to work for him.

It's my understanding from listening to Robert Gouveia's reading of live chat from the court proceeding and from commentary from Kash Patel that the jury rejected allegations relating to sexual abuse or sexual assault and returned a finding a liability for simple battery (although evidence for this lower allegation was a sorely lacking as for the rape allegation).

Many people tried to educate the voters in my area (which is still 60/40 conservative), and yet all five were elected with large majorities. Few pay enough attention to high profile candidates, almost no one pays attention to judicial elections.
