The legal melodramas enveloping Donald Trump are becoming more engrossing than the fictional soap operas broadcast on television. Who would have believed ten years ago that a candidate of a major political party would be running for president with 91 felony charges pending against him? And even more unimaginable, that candidate is actually the frontrunner.
That is, unfortunately, where we are now in America as Trump has cast his spell on what remains of the Republican Party. What was once referred to as the “Grand Old Party” (GOP) would now more accurately be called the “Groveling Obedient Peons.” It’s a cult that shamelessly worships a criminally indicted felon and rapist who preaches a platform of vengeance and venality.
“Fani Willis, the D.A. of Fulton County, just admitted to having a sexual relationship with the Prosecutor she, in consultation with the White House and DOJ, appointed to ‘GET PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.’ By going after the most high level person, and the Republican Nominee, she was able to get her ‘lover’ much more money, almost a Million Dollars, than she would be able to get for the prosecution of any other person or individual. THAT MEANS THAT THIS SCAM IS TOTALLY DISCREDITED & OVER!”
For the umpteenth time Trump is trying to associate all of the prosecutors who are investigating his criminal activities with President Biden and his Justice Department. He has never provided a shred of evidence that any such connection exists, but the baseless accusation is a core part of his victimhood. He’s convinced that Biden is the head of a corrupt cabal that encompasses the entire U.S. government, even though he is – according to Trump – mentally deficient and unable to put two sentences together.
Even so, this accusation makes less sense than his other wild fantasies. He’s asserting that Biden and the DoJ got Willis to hire a special prosecutor at allegedly inflated rates. But why would the Biden administration want to enrich Willis’ boyfriend? Trump is just grasping at air to try to invoke some sort of scandal.
What’s more, Trump’s claim that the relationship “MEANS THAT THIS SCAM IS TOTALLY DISCREDITED & OVER” is preposterous. That relationship doesn’t discredit the case because it has no bearing whatsoever on the facts that have been accumulated that show that Trump attempted to threaten officials in Georgia in order to overturn the election results. And as for Trump’s suggestion that the case is now “OVER,” that will be news to the judge and the prosecutors who are still intensely engaged in it.
Meanwhile, it appears that Trump has directed one of his congressional cronies to launch an assault on Willis. Jim Jordan, the GOP chair of the House Judiciary Committee, just issued a subpoena for Willis to appear and deliver documents. As reported by CBS News…
“House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan subpoenaed Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for documents related to an investigation by the GOP-led panel into allegations she misused federal funds, accusations she has denied.” […]
“Republicans on the Judiciary Committee have been looking into Willis’ use of federal funds during her office’s investigation into former President Donald Trump and his alleged scheme to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state.”
This is another flagrant of abuse of power by Jordan. His committee has no jurisdiction over state prosecutions that are still in progress. His intention is to disrupt the prosecution in an effort to rescue his Dear Leader Trump. It won’t go anywhere. And coming from Jordan, who is currently still failing to comply with a congressional subpoena of his own, it could not be more ludicrous and transparently vindictive. Willis issued a response saying that…
“These false allegations are included in baseless litigation filed by a holdover employee from the previous administration who was terminated for cause. The courts that have ruled found no merit in these claims. We expect the same result in any pending litigation.”
In his delusion, Trump seems to think that these vicious tactics will get him off the hook for his multitude of crimes. He’s going to learn the hard way that judges and juries are not as easy to fool as his glassy-eyed cult followers. And if he needs any reminders of that, he just needs to ask E. Jean Carroll.
