The legal calamities that are consuming Donald Trump are continuing to pile up. He is currently under investigation by prosecutors in New York, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. This week alone he has been hit with new allegations about his carting off classified documents to Mar-a-Lago, his longtime accounting firm disavowing him and his financial reporting for the past ten years, and his having been ordered to testify in the probe of his corrupt financial affairs in New York.
As the burden of these tribulations weigh on him, Trump is responding in his typical fashion by throwing childish temper tantrums and attacking those he perceives as enemies. And first on his hit list was his perennial foe, Hillary Clinton. In a statement released by his his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Trump raged…
“So, Crooked Hillary Clinton, one of the most corrupt politicians ever to run for President, can break into the White House, my apartment, buildings I own, and my campaign—in other words, she can spy on a Presidential candidate and ultimately the President of the United States—and the now totally discredited Fake News Media does everything they can not to talk about it.”
Trump is still disgorging the flagrant lie that a court filing by special counsel John Durham “proved” that the Clinton camp spied on him. In fact, Durham’s filing said nothing of the sort. Even Durham refuted the misinterpretations being bandied about by Fox News and other right-wing propagandists. And nothing in his filing alleged any “break into the White House,” or any other allegation of spying. If the media isn’t talking about it, it’s because there is nothing to talk about.
That, however, hasn’t stopped Trump from talking (as if anything could). So he turned his wrath to New York Attorney General Letitia James…
“Failed Gubernatorial candidate, Letitia James, can run for the office of AG on saying absolutely horrendous and false things about Donald Trump, a man she doesn’t know and has never met, go on to get elected, and then selectively prosecute him and his family. After viewing millions of pages of documents over many years, they come up with a “Fringe Benefits” case on a car, an apartment, and on grandchildren’s education.”
Ms. James was only briefly a candidate for governor of New York. She chose, instead, not to enter the Democratic primary against the current governor, Kathy Hochul, so that she could finish the job she started as Attorney General, including the case against Trump. For some reason Trump thinks that a prosecutor needs to personally know every defendant they indict. That’s preposterous. They only have to know what crimes they committed and the evidence supporting the charges. Which the judge who ordered Trump to testify said was “copious.” And while Trump may want to trivialize the charges as “Fringe Benefits,” they actually amount to more than $2,000,000 of unreported income.
Trump’s tirade continued with his whining about being “targeted” despite his having received “more votes while in office than any President in History.” So what? First of all, there are more voters than ever before. More importantly, Biden got seven million more votes than he did. Trump also complained that his critics are just “Radical Left Democrats [who] don’t want to run again.” He failed to mention that 49% of Republicans also don’t him to run again.
Trump finished his harangue with flurry of furious assertions that he was (again) the victim of a “Witch Hunt,” whining that “I can’t get a fair hearing in New York because of the hatred of me by Judges and the judiciary.” But in the event that judges may “hate” crime family bosses and treasonous cult leaders, that doesn’t mean that they won’t get a fair trial. The truth is that what Trump is really afraid of is that he actually will get a fair trial.
