Prosecutors signal criminal charges for Donald Trump



The Manhattan district attorney’s recently indicated to former President Donald Trump’s lawyers that the possibility of criminal charges remain on the table for his role in paying hush money to Stormy Daniels.  Sources close to the matter said this is the strongest hint that criminal charges could be filed against Trump.

The sources also confirmed that the prosecutors have given Trump the opportunity to testify next week before the grand jury who have been hearing evidence about a potential criminal trial.  The sources believe this suggests that a criminal trial is on the horizon as DA Alvin Bragg is unlikely to reach out to a potential defendant in this way if he does not intend to file charges.

 In New York, potential defendants are entitled to answer questions before the grand jury prior to being indicted.  Historically this offer has been declined and Trump’s lawyers also have the possibility of meeting with the prosecutors in an attempt to reach a deal to remove the possibility of a criminal trial.

A criminal case would mark the first indictment of a former American president and would cast doubt over Trump’s involvement in the 2024 race.  It would also thrust DA Alvin Bragg into the limelight.

If Trump does become the first former American president to be indicted, “convicting him or sending him to prison will be challenging,” the Times says, due to the case being based on “an untested and therefore risky legal theory” of combining the criminal charges of falsifying business records with a violation of state election law.

The “Left” is terrified of Donald Trump since he is a direct threat to their agenda of dictatorship and enslavement of the people to the State. These lies related to Stormy Daniels were exposed a long time ago. And remember, her lawyer is in jail for crimes related to the scam.
