On March 30, 2023, a New York grand jury indicted former president and current leader of the Republican Party, Donald Trump. The charges have not been disclosed but they appear to be related to a payment made to a sex worker by Trump’s former lawyer
It’s a clear attempt by the party in power to take out the opposition frontrunner.
There are 1.3 million lawyers in the Untied States.
All of them know that Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, who ran for office on a promise to “get Trump” 1. is without jurisdiction to bring the charges (a federal campaign violation, if any being a federal matter); 2. if a state claim could somehow be crafted from an alleged campaign violation, it is barred by the expiration of the statute of limitations and 3. Bragg has two witnesses, a perjurious
felon/disbarred attorney and a sex worker.
In the weeks leading to the indictment, many legal analysts, including Alan Dershowitz
, Jonathan Turley
and others wrote extensively on whether Bragg’s action had merit (they said it didn’t) and if it constituted prosecutorial misconduct (they said it did).
Bragg went ahead anyway.
Americans, after watching governmental overreach in the IRS targeting of conservative nonprofits, the COVID
lock downs and mandatory vaccines, the Twitter censorship, the withholding of 1/6 videotapes from the public and defendants, the Depart of Justice failure to protect Supreme Court Justices being picketed and intimidated, the apparent ability of the Biden
family to escape accountability, have had their eyes opened.
They see the Trump indictment for what it is and they are shuddering.
Trump famously said “They’re not after me, they’re after you. I’m just in the way”
America knows it.
