Donald Trump may be the most transparent politician in the modern history of the United States. That isn’t because he is forthright or sincere, and certainly not because he is honest. Trump is as far removed from those traits as is humanely possible.
However, Trump can be unintentionally candid on occasion due to his uninhibited ego, his unfiltered ignorance, and his utter inability to comprehend what he actually says. A good example of that was on display Monday when Trump posted a message to his failing social media site, TRUTH Social. Trump’s “truth” was framed as an attack on District Attorney Fani Willis of Fulton County, Georgia. But instead it revealed just how frightened he is of Willis and her investigation. Trump whined that…
“The young, ambitious, Radical Left ‘Prosecutor” from Georgia, who is presiding over one of the most Crime Ridden and Corrupt places in the USA, Fulton County, has put together a Grand Jury to investigate an absolutely “PERFECT” phone call to the Secretary of State. Many lawyers, from both sides, were knowingly on the call. I also assumed it was taped. I called to fight a Rigged and Stolen Election, and they go after me instead of the people that Rigged and Stole it. God Bless America.”
It’s cute that Trump went out of his way to remind everyone of his “perfect” phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy wherein he committed the extortion that led to his first impeachment. Although he has softened his view of Willis, saying only that she is a young, ambitious, lefty. He has previously referred to all of the prosecutors on his trail – many of whom are Black – as racists.
More to the point, Trump is flagrantly lying about the phone call that he made to Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, and other election officials and lawyers, who he threatened in order to coerce them into altering the election results. As Trump notes, the entire call was recorded.
But if Trump is telling the truth about knowing that the call was being taped, he’s even dumber than we thought. Because it would be extraordinarily stupid to say on a recorded line that “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes.” That just happens to be the precise amount he needed to prevail over the actual winner, Joe Biden. And that’s all he wants. It would be even more idiotic to descend into mob boss behavior by overtly threatening to prosecute Raffensperger, saying…
“You know what they did and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal offense. And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan [Germany], your lawyer. That’s a big risk. They are shredding ballots in my opinion, based on what I’ve heard. And they are removing machinery, and they’re moving it as fast as they can. Both of which are criminal finds. And you can’t let it happen, and you are letting it happen. You know, I’m notifying you that you’re letting it happen.”
So Trump officially gave notice to these Georgia officials that he intended to hold them criminally liable for the fake offenses he is accusing them of. That notice was clearly meant to scare them into submission. And by his own admission, his demands to overturn the election were based entirely on rumors and “what I’ve heard.” And he delivered that threat on a call that he “knew” was being recorded?
Now that Trump is facing justice for his criminal acts, he is lashing out frantically and incoherently. He is undoubtedly spooked by the news that a special grand jury was seated Monday in Willis’ probe. And she said that her office is also looking into the fake Electoral College certifications that Trump’s team contrived in an effort to illegally overturn the 2020 presidential election. As reported by CNN, Willis said that…
“‘We’re going to look at anything connected with interference with the 2020 election. I’ve allowed that to be a broad scope, not just the (former) President’s phone call that you played there but other things that indicate that there may have been interference with that election, to include fake electorates.'”
As the evidence of Trump’s guilt piles up, he is exposing his fear. He can’t help it. And he actually thinks that his hysterical ravings are helpful to his dire legal circumstances. But the truth is that he is just making himself appear more feeble, frightened, and guilty. And in that respect, Trump could not be more transparent.
