I guess I'm not surprised, even though I got it wrong, it's reasonable enough.

Ya I missed this one too. I might be mixing up my TV lawering and reality.

I actually looked this up after I posted my response and discovered the true answer.  It can be used, as I said, to establish a pattern and therefore to prove guilt.  But it can also be used to impeach because the previous convictions were for crimes (fraud) that involved dishonesty, and therefore are admissible to show that the witness is a liar. I believe that if the previous conviction had been for a drug offense or something that did not involve dishonesty it would not be admissible. The mere fact that a person has been guilty of a crime is not necessarily admissible for impeachment unless it goes to the truthfulness of the witness.

and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.

C.  It’s a question of whether he formed the intent to murder, and that’s for the jury to decide.  Legally, it’s possible to form an intent to commit murder in an instant; if the jury believes that he intended to kill her and did so with malice aforethought, it’s second degree murder; if they believe that he intended to kill her but that he acted in a moment of heightened emotion following the attack/provocation, they can find that he committed manslaughter.
