Trump indicted. What timing!

Trump indicted. What timing!

Donald Trump:

This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history.

From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats — the enemy of the hardworking men and women of this Country — have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement.

You remember it just like I do: Russia, Russia, Russia; the Mueller Hoax; Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine; Impeachment Hoax 1; Impeachment Hoax 2; the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this.

The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to ‘Get Trump,’ but now they’ve done the unthinkable — indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference.

Never before in our Nation’s history has this been done. The Democrats have cheated countless times over the decades, including spying on my campaign, but weaponizing our justice system to punish a political opponent, who just so happens to be a President of the United States and by far the leading Republican candidate for President, has never happened before. Ever.

Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who was hand-picked and funded by George Soros, is a disgrace. Rather than stopping the unprecedented crime wave taking over New York City, he’s doing Joe Biden’s dirty work, ignoring the murders and burglaries and assaults he should be focused on. This is how Bragg spends his time!

I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden. 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 last one of these Crooked Democrats out of office so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

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.

Kevin McCarthy:

Alvin Bragg has irreparably damaged our country in an attempt to interfere in our Presidential election.

As he routinely frees violent criminals to terrorize the public, he weaponized our sacred system of justice against President Donald Trump.

The American people will not tolerate this injustice, and the House of Representatives will hold Alvin Bragg and his unprecedented abuse of power to account.

Nancy Pelosi (how revealing!)

No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.

New York Times:

He will be fingerprinted. He will be photographed. He may even be handcuffed. …

Lawyers for Mr. Trump, who is running for president a third time, said late Thursday that he will surrender and he is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday. …


Some Democrats cheered. Others were somber.

But from New York to New Mexico, the early Democratic reaction to news of Donald J. Trump’s indictment had one common message: No one is above the law.

Techno Fog on the timing:

Bragg and his predecessor’s slow-walking of the investigation, with its inception by Manhattan DA goes back to 2019, evidences both the dubious nature of the case against Trump and the political motivations for prosecuting Trump.

Theoretically, this should be a simple case. Yet the investigation went on for nearly five years …

Why bring the case now? It’s the start of the 2024 presidential campaign season. …

You can’t help but think of the political calculations that went on in Bragg’s head. Not only does he benefit personally, now elevated to a liberal folk hero after being the prosecutor to finally get Trump (a campaign promise he keeps), but this throws a grenade into the Republican race. Will the GOP base rally to Trump? How will the other candidates respond?

And what will this do for the undecideds and the independents and the swing voters — those who are essential to victory in 2024? …

Don’t be surprised if the trial date is set for the first half of 2024.

Selective enforcement is a powerful thing in the hands of a ruling class determined to put down any challenge.

There’s little downside for the Democrats in this (leaving aside the long-term damage to the country). If the public reacts angrily to their machinations and support for trump swells, they can just end it and erase it. Trump will no doubt move to dismiss the trial, and that motion will go before a Democrat-supporting judge in NY. The Democrats can just instruct the judge to dismiss the case. Then the Democrat-allied media simply never mention the case agsin, and by election time in late 2024 it’s all forgotten.
