Donald Trump indicted

Former President Donald Trump yesterday became the first former President to come under a criminal indictment.

The Donald Trump indictment

Blaze News broke the story yesterday afternoon, sourcing it to The New York Times. According to a statement by New York County District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg, the indictment remains under seal. But rumors have it that the charges in the indictment carry a prison term of four years.

Headline USA carried this report, plus a tweet by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas):

Commentator Greg Price also dropped this thread:

A Manhattan grand jury had been investigating Trump for allegedly having an affair with a pornography actress, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, paying her for a non-disclosure agreement (which she did not honor), and – the key – failure to report the payment as a campaign expenditure.

Allusions to the march by Julius Caesar and the Thirteenth Legion across the Rubicon River abounded.

Historical note: the late Colleen McCullough, who researched ancient Rome extensively for her seven-part series The Masters of Rome, disputed the translation of Caesar’s famous phrase as “The die is cast.” She suggests the he is far more likely to have said:

Let the dice fly high!

Angry reaction also came from other Republican officeholders:]

But one user accused Donald Trump of falsely alluding to a possible indictment, and then provoking Bragg to do it. Jack Posobiec tweeted only a screencap, suggesting the user deleted the tweet later.

A distraction?

“Poso” also speculated that the indictment is a distraction from the “manifesto” by the perpetrator of the Nashville Incident.

Worth noting is that earlier yesterday the grand jury was supposed to have gone on a month-long recess.

“Poso” also released this purported recording which is probably a hoax that he based on that “distraction” speculation.

He already has a reputation for releasing “deepfake video” as a joke.

Laura Loomer shared this video of what she said would be typical voter reaction:

For his part, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) indicated he would refuse extradition if New York State demanded it.

However, Trump’s lawyers have suggested they will cooperate with New York authorities.

So when is Alvin Bragg going to be indicted for his crimes. Anyone who has paid attention knows he has manufactured these charges, is engaged in malfeasance related to his job due to failing to prosecute actual crimes, and I suspect one could look at existing laws and find other crimes.
