Tuesday’s indictment and historic arrest of former President Donald Trump left many people scratching their head. On Jessie Waters Primetime, a Fox News’ staff member talked with leftist anti-Trump protesters to ask them what Trump was being arrested for. They were clueless. They had no idea.
However, even after the release of the indictment against Trump and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s press conference, most of America is no better off than the Trump protesters as far as knowing what Trump was arrested for.
The 16-page indictment was a list of 34 of the same charges which Bragg says are all felonies.
The indictment accused Orange Man Bad of falsifying business records in the first degree.
The first charge says, “The defendant, in the County of New York and elsewhere, on or about February 14, 2017, with intent to defraud and intent to commit another crime and aid and conceal the commission thereof, made and caused a false entry in the business records of an enterprise, to wit, an invoice from Michael Cohen dated February 14, 2017, marked as a record of the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, and kept and maintained by the Trump Organization.”
Every count after that paragraph says the same thing, citing different instances and different ways it happened. The indictment says the same thing 34 times because Bragg’s office came up with 34 different instances of false entries in ledgers or checks written that they could target.
What the indictment never mentions is the “other crime” the charges are based on.
WHY doesn’t Bragg mention the “other crime” in the indictment? Because he said he is not legally mandated to do so.
Talk show host Mark Levin is incredulous about the whole thing. On his radio show on Tuesday evening, Levin called the indictment a “stupid document” that makes no sense.
He said “there’s no crimes alleged here.” Just accusations. Levin asks, “How can he (Trump) be covering up a crime” if he hasn’t been charged and convicted of an underlying crime that the accusations are based on?
Levin said the state statute is unconstitutional if Bragg is telling the truth about not having to tell anyone what the underlying crime is. Levin says it doesn’t allow Trump any due process to keep the underlying crime hidden from him and his legal team.

But we all know what this is about – Bragg’s future career ambitions, his George Soros funding – and Hillary Clinton.
In addition to the indictment, a 13-page statement of facts was released that says, “The defendant DONALD J. TRUMP repeatedly and fraudulently falsified New York business records to conceal criminal conduct that hid damaging information from the voting public during the 2016 presidential election.”
What criminal conduct? They haven’t proven any criminal conduct. And Bragg has no jurisdiction on any federal crimes.
So this is about Trump beating Hillary Clinton and being arrested for that.
Never mind that Hilary, the Democrats and the fake news media all colluded (and still are colluding) to hide what the Democrats are up to – and lie about things the Republicans are NOT up to. It’s called politics.
Too bad Hills can’t get arrested for ACTUALLY interfering in an election. When she used her lawyers to pay for the fraudulent Steele Dossier, she didn’t go to jail. She only recently got fined for it – a whole $8,000 – even though the fraud went on for years and led to investigations and impeachment and jail time for some and Democrat crimes like fake FISA warrant applications. That was a true crime – and conspiracy – against the American people.

Everyone knows this whole thing is a political farce but what’s really sad is that Bragg’s office is spending all this time and millions of dollars going after Trump and ignoring the safety of the people in his own city. While he’s busy turning Trump misdemeanors into felonies, he’s turning felonies of career criminals into misdemeanors.
