In the first of what I expect to be many Democrat indictments of former President Trump in the coming years, a Manhattan grand jury indicted Orange Man Bad on more than 30 secret counts related to business fraud and Trump’s connection with making hush money payments to porn star, Stormy Daniels.
While Republicans and Trump supporters were understandably upset about REAL issues like due process and the law, Democrats and their leftist friends in the media have been downright giddy.
Washed-up actor Rob Reiner, who needs psychological help (he talks about Trump daily), tweeted “Trump Indicted! First among many!”
Trump’s niece and anti-Trump family author Mary tweeted “Anyone else sleep well last night?”
US Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) tweeted, “SO Trump finally got indicted! I predicted he would and I predicted that Stormy Daniels would get him! Sometimes justice works.”
Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted, “Donald Trump is subject to the same laws as every American. He will be able to avail himself of the legal system and a jury, not politics, to determine his fate according to the facts and the law.”
A Democrat legal system with a Democrat judge and jury, no doubt.
Nancy Pelosi, former Democratic Speaker of the House, said about the indictment, “The grand jury has acted upon the facts and the law. No one is above the law…”
It’s funny how the Democrats keep saying Trump is not above the law. Well, he’s not BELOW the law either and that’s exactly what’s going on with them. Democrats are never in search of crimes. They go after people (or don’t) depending on if they will get rich or get votes from doing so. They also believe in vengeance. There is no due process with them. The law is not a shield, it’s a sword.
After the indictment was revealed, Trump released a statement that said, “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 hard-working 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 stole 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.”
Trump continued, “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 will 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!”
It remains to be seen how much more Trump will be able to say since it’s predicted that the judge will slap a gag order on him. That would be interesting to watch.
House Speaker Republican Kevin McCarthy says the House will hold Bragg to account for his “unprecedented abuse of power” and that the indictment of Trump has “irreparably damaged our country.”
Trump’s former Attorney General Bill Barr calls the indictment an “abomination, an “abuse of prosecutorial power” and a “shameful episode in our history.”
Ronna McDaniel, GOP chairwoman, tweeted that the indictment is a “blatant abuse of power from a DA focused on political vengeance” and went on to say, “When our justice system is weaponized as a political tool, it endangers all of us.”
Florida governor and possible future Trump rival to be president, Ron DeSantis, called the indictment “un-American” and said Bragg was “stretching the law to target a political opponent.”
Trump’s former VP, Mike Pence, said in an interview on CNN that the indictment “offends the notion of the American people who believe in fairness, who believe in equal treatment before the law.”
Trump’s son, Trump Jr. is calling the whole thing “communist level shit.”
Talk show host Dan Bongino tweeted “Yes, we live in a police state. No, it’s not open for debate. Yes, liberals love police states, and the tyranny they bring with it. No, it won’t work as you’ve likely sealed his nomination now in 2024.”
Talk show host Mark Levin said about the indictment, “We are staring in the face of tyranny, that the Democrat Party is a totalitarian party…We have completely out-of-control prosecutors and investigators.”
He went on to say, “And if Democrats are cheering, this is what people need to understand. That the Democrat Party is the party of totalitarianism, that’s what it is. Murderers, rapists, in the front door, out the back door. But if you’re a Republican or if you’re a Trump supporter, anything of that sort, well then of course they’re going to hunt you down and they’re going to do whatever they have to do. Democrat grand juries, Democrat juries, Democrat prosecutors, Democrat judges, and no care at all for the country. The party comes first…This is a grotesque, grotesque, Stalinist, Maoist-type action…”
Those on the the list of politicians remaining silent about the Trump indictment so far include President Biden, VP Kamala Harris, RINO Liz Cheney, and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.
And loser Hillary Clinton.
Although, on The View on Friday, the giddy co-host Joy Behar laughed about Trump’s indictment and said about Hillary, “I hope she’s enjoying this.”
