The news of the indictment against President Trump is worse for Alvin Bragg than it is for Trump. His star witness is a habitual liar and if he puts Cohen on the stand, he is risking his law license by suborning perjury. If he doesn’t put him on the stand, he has nothing, especially since the statute of limitations has long passed.
Not getting an indictment, in this case, would have been preferable to losing the case in court, assuming the judge does not toss it and Bragg out of his or her court. You know the old saying. “If you attempt to kill the king, you’d better not fail.” This will likely make President Trump a stronger candidate and his campaign coffers are likely to see a quick infusion of cash.
FACT-O-RAMA! Trump successfully sued Stormy Daniels—and won—and was granted $300,000 for legal fees he spent fighting charges relating to Daniels’ failed defamation case against the former president.
The grand jury decided to indict Trump after hearing testimony involving Trump paying $150,000 to Playboy model Karen McDougal. It is alleged that the two had a ten-month affair that started in 2006. It is not likely that Trump will be charged for the payoff to McDougal.
FACT-O-RAMA! President Ulysses S. Grant was arrested for speeding—in a horse carriage. He paid a $20 fine.
The indictment comes as a surprise, as Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s office claimed the grand jury would take a month-long break from the Trump case, as PJM’s Matt Margolis reported here.
“The break would push any indictment of the former president to late April at the earliest, although it is possible that the grand jury’s schedule could change. In recent weeks, the Manhattan district attorney’s office hasn’t convened the panel on certain days. But it is District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s prerogative to ask the grand jury to reconvene if prosecutors want the panel to meet during previously planned breaks,” Politico reported. “The grand jury, which heard testimony in the Trump case on Monday, isn’t meeting Wednesday and is expected to examine evidence in a separate matter Thursday, the person said. The grand jury, which typically meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, is scheduled to consider another case next week on Monday and Wednesday, the person said, and isn’t expected to meet Thursday due to the Passover holiday.”
The indictment is sure to please commies—like your pink-hair, trans-pansexual brother-in-law—and will likely embolden Trump supporters, and perhaps even people on the fence about Trump.
Legendary comedian Chris Rock recently joked that arresting Trump would be “stupid.”
”Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” Rock asked an audience that included several politicians and a few Biden administration officials at the Kennedy Center.
“Do you know this is only going to make him more popular? It’s like arresting Tupac Shakur,” Rock joked.
Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg allegedly received death threats over the Trump grand jury. He also allegedly received an envelope of white powder, which turned out to be harmless.
