Hey, remember when Democrats the said you can't criminalize a sexual affair? Remember Bill Clinton and many other Democratic elected officials that were caught in that act?
Well, guess what?
Today, the Grand jury voted to Indict President Donald Trump in New York. A political prosecution. Welcome to Russia in Manhattan.
Today they made history, and this is uncharted territory. All this for obstructing a Presidential election by a George Soros financed prosecutor.
Trump will be the first former president to face criminal charges. The precise charges are not yet known, but the case is focused on a hush-money payment to a porn star during his 2016 campaign.
These are state charges and not federal. Currently, the indictment and the charges are under seal.
The unprecedented case against Trump will have wide-ranging implications.
A Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Trump on Thursday, accusing him of paying hush money to a porn star, according to five people with knowledge of the matter, a historic development that will shake up the 2024 presidential race and forever mark him as the nation's first former president to face criminal charges.
This indictment sealed his win of the Presidency, as millions nationwide are outraged over this miscarriage of justice.
An indictment with details will likely be announced in the coming days. There is no warrant issued for Trump's arrest. By then, prosecutors working for the district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, will have asked Mr. Trump to surrender and to face arraignment on charges that remain unknown for now.
Here's what else you need to know:
Mr. Bragg and his lawyers will probably attempt to negotiate Mr. Trump's surrender. If he agrees, it will raise the prospect of a former president.
The prosecution's star witness is Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump's former fixer who paid the $130,000 to keep Ms. Daniels quiet. Mr. Cohen has said that Mr. Trump directed him to buy Ms. Daniels's silence, and that Mr. Trump and his family business, the Trump Organization, helped cover the whole thing up. The company's internal records falsely identified the reimbursements as legal expenses, which helped conceal the purpose of the payments.
Both Daniels and Coen, who testified to the Grand jury, were outed as liars before other criminal and civil juries. Coen was sentenced to federal prison for lying to the government.
Yet, the jury is taking their word about these malicious lies as fact.
Although the specific charges remain unknown, Mr. Bragg's prosecutors have zeroed in on that hush money payment and the false records created by Trump's company. A conviction is not a sure thing: An attempt to combine a charge relating to the false records with an election violation relating to the payment to Ms. Daniels would be based on a legal theory that has yet to be evaluated by judges, raising the possibility that a court could throw out or limit the charges.
The vote to indict, the product of a nearly five-year investigation, kicks off a new and volatile phase in Trump's post-presidential life as he makes a third run for the White House.
This indictment in no way prevents him from dropping out of the race. Most likely, the charges will be dismissed by a higher court.
These are state charges, not federal. But if one were to be convicted of either, an individual cannot be barred from running from federal office, just state.
Mr. Bragg is the first prosecutor in history to lead an indictment of a President. He is now likely to become a national figure enduring a harsh political spotlight.
This will end his political career.
Bragg, a Democrat, received donations from George Soros and carried on this witch hunt to prosecute the President.
Why Trump? Why not other elected officials?
The US Congress has an office called “The Office of Compliance”, created in the 1990s to date, it has paid out over $17 million of our TAX Dollars to victims of sitting Congressional members, for everything from sexual harassment, discrimination, racial, religious and disability-related cases. Victims are also required to sign non disclosure agreements as well. So over 260 paid victims and more in the works now according to CNN. What exactly did President Trump allegedly do, I don't know, but I do know it wasn't with our tax dollars.
Even the Governor of Florida became enraged over the indictment and expressed his displeasure.
Trump statement from Governor Ron DeSantis:
The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head.
It is un-American.
The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent.
Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda.
So what comes next?
The Secret Service notified DA Bragg and law enforcement that in no way will Trump be surrendered while under the protection of the Secret Service because of security reasons.
If there is to be a hearing, it will be done via a zoom call with the judge.
His fingerprints are subject to NATIONAL SECURITY. He cannot be allowed to be printed into AFIS. His photos are already on file from a gun permit he obtained in New York.
The Secret Service will demand bail to be waived because of NATIONAL SECURITY reasons. Under their protection, he is no flight risk.
Absolutely no "perp" walk or handcuffing him will be permitted.
This case, in theory, will be difficult to prosecute as they are using the basis of federal election charges to state. The Southern District of the U.S. Attorney's Office refused to charge Trump because there was no evidence.
It appears Bragg may have misled the grand jury on the meat of the charges.
“I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden,” Trump said. “The American people realize exactly what the Radical Left Democrats are doing here. Everyone can see it. So, our movement, and our Party united and strong, will first defeat Alvin Bragg, and then we will defeat Joe Biden, and we are going to throw every one of these Crooked Democrats out of office, so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
I am a former State's Attorney Investigator. I have seen hundreds of cases processed through a grand jury, only to have the charges dropped. They always say you can indict a ham sandwich.
What led us to this? The witch hunts during his presidential campaign. The Russian collusion investigation with Comey. His impeachment TWICE. He won every time.
Over 50 juries from across the country tried to indict him and failed.
This jury in its time was bought and paid for.
Trump, for the last couple of weeks, has criticized Bragg and his office, insisting that he is innocent and questioning why he would face charges. Trump also called for protests in response, something critics have latched onto to suggest he is intent on summoning a violent mob to do his bidding. Threats and suspicious packages received by Bragg’s office have only heightened scrutiny, and a photograph that appeared on Trump’s Truth Social account last week as part of an article he linked to criticizing Bragg further escalated matters.
Reactions to the news have been streaming in since it first broke Thursday evening, with several Republicans bashing the decision to indict Trump.
“This is not an indictment of a crime—there was no crime—instead, this news is the indictment of a failed nation,” Taylor Budowich, the CEO of Make America Great Again Inc., the pro-Trump 2024 Super PAC, said. “President Trump is promising to peacefully end the war in Ukraine, dismantle the deep state, and save our country by putting America first. For that, the political elites and power brokers have weaponized the government to try to stop him. They will fail. He will be re-elected in the greatest landslide in American history, and together we will all Make America Great Again.”
House GOP conference chairwoman Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) said this only solidifies her decision to endorse Trump–which she did months ago when he announced he was running a third time for president–and that this move from Bragg proves he is “corrupt.”
“The unprecedented election interference from corrupt Socialist District Attorney Alvin Bragg is a political witch-hunt and a dark day for America,” Stefanik said. “The radical Far Left will stop at nothing to persecute Joe Biden’s chief political opponent ahead of the 2024 presidential election to suppress the will and voice of the American people.Tens of millions of patriotic Americans have never been so energized to exercise their constitutional rights to peacefully organize and VOTE at the ballot box to save our great republic by electing President Donald J. Trump in 2024.”
Ed Cox, the chairman of the New York state GOP, said in a statement that the indictment is a “miscarriage of justice, an outrageous violation of democratic norms and a travesty for our politics at home and reputation abroad.”
“Both the Southern District of New York and Joe Biden’s Department of Justice declined to pursue this matter. This is a blatant political scheme by Alvin Bragg to make a name for himself and play to his liberal Manhattan base by smearing, tearing down and demeaning former President Trump,” Cox added. “Alvin Bragg has already abdicated his basic responsibilities by releasing criminals back onto the streets to wreak havoc on New York’s citizens and minority communities in particular. He has brought further disgrace to his office with this political game. The great Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau is turning over in his grave.”
While some Democrats were exuberant and excited in their responses, some vulnerable Democrats were more measured–an indication of just how politically explosive this indictment is:

Even Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), one of Trump’s biggest critics and usually someone who parrots the hard left’s rhetoric, was careful in his first statement:
"The indictment of a former president is a somber day for America. It’s also a time to put faith in our judicial system. Donald Trump deserves every protection provided to him by the Constitution. As that unfolds, let us neither celebrate nor destroy. Justice benefits us all"

The Democrats are now worried about this legal strategy to disqualify Trump from running. As a matter of fact the Republicans are becoming united. Trump's fundraising is breaking records as his supporters are standing behind him especially just five days after his rally in Texas that was attended by 30,000 of his supporters.
Trump supporters enraged
This indictment in itself gave him his second term in the White House. His wins were proven time and time again.
Congress will demand hearings and most likely demand federal prosecutions for violations of Trump's civil rights as the Republicans control the House and it's special committees. Even the DOJ are staying far away from DA Bragg and his legal theory that eventually a judge will throw out.
In the mean time let us continue to support Trump and rally around him as he stands off these attacks. Let us Make America Greater Again!
