Democrats spent six years trying to indict Donald Trump.
Now it’s here.
And the Manhattan district attorney indicted Donald Trump and you won’t believe what happened next.
The fake news media could barely contain its glee.
A Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Trump on the sham charges Bragg dredged up regarding a payment to Stormy Daniels in October 2016.
The New York Times reports:
A Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Donald J. Trump on Thursday for his role in 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.
An indictment will likely be announced in the coming days. 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.
Bragg’s case is centered on the ludicrous theory that Donald Trump falsified business records to conceal a campaign finance violation the federal government found no evidence to prosecute Trump on.
Even some of Trump’s harshest critics admitted Bragg’s case is a joke.
Never Trump Washington Post columnist Max Boot posted on Twitter that the charges against Trump are trivial and bound to backfire as the public saw them as politically motivated.
“I confess to being skeptical of this case. Trump should be indicted for trying to steal the election and fomenting a coup, not for paying off Stormy Daniels. There is a worrying potential for this indictment to backfire. But let’s respect the process and let the case play out,” Boot stated.
Former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis who now supports Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for president explained that Democrats weaponized the justice system to indict Trump only because he chose to run for re-election.
Ellis added that while the establishment in both parties want to move beyond Trump this phony indictment would only serve to strengthen Trump’s support.
“The case against Donald Trump is a legal disaster and weaponizing the justice system against a political opponent. The only reason DA Alvin Bragg is bringing charges is because Trump is running for the GOP 2024 presidential nomination. The DNC and RNC want a post-Trump America, yet they are incentivizing donors and the MAGA base to rally support against Trump because no one deserves to be politically prosecuted,” Ellis wrote on social media.
Democrats crossed the Rubicon with the politically motivated indictment of Donald Trump.
Many Americans are worried about what this means for the country because Democrats threw norms, guardrails, and the rule of law out the window as part of their obsession to get Trump.
