The seething fear of Donald Trump continues to boil over into ever more belligerent and bizarre outbursts on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. For several days Trump has been posting repetitious and offensive assaults on the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, who is reported to be nearing a decision on indicting Trump.

Among Trump’s blathering broadsides are racist and anti-Semitic insults aimed at the Black D.A. Trump refers to Bragg as “A SOROS BACKED ANIMAL,” who is seeking to destroy the country. And he attempts to persuade the NYPD to shirk their duties to protect New Yorkers from the StormTrumpers who are threatening to riot if Trump is indicted.

On Thursday morning Trump persisted with his impertinent prattle in post that reeked of the meritless pride of a confirmed malignant narcissist. He expressed his astonishment at having discovered what he thinks is a bombshell revelation that blows the roof off of the Stormy Daniels “hush money” affair.
The letter was from the attorney for Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), and said in part that the $130,000.00 that Trump paid to Daniels to buy her silence “does not constitute a campaign contribution.” It went on to say that…
“In a private transaction in 2016, before the U.S. presidential election, Mr. Cohen used his own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford. Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment directly or indirectly.
“Contrary to the allegations in the complaint, which are entirely speculative, neither Mr. Cohen nor Essential Consultants LLC made any in-kind contributions to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., or any other presidential campaign committee.”
To that Trump responded…
“Wow, look what was just found—A Letter from Cohen’s Lawyer to the Federal Election Commission. This is totally exculpatory, and must end the Manhattan District Attorney’s Witch Hunt, immediately. Cohen admits that he did it himself. The D.A. should get on with prosecuting violent criminals, so people can walk down the sidewalks of New York without being murdered!”
There is an impressive quantity of bullpucky in there. Let’s break it down…
First of all, this letter was not “just found.” It is not exculpatory at all. It won’t end the D.A.’s investigation. It isn’t a witch hunt. Cohen’s “admission” was a lie. And millions of New Yorkers walk the streets without being murdered every day. In fact, crime is down.
The truth is that the letter Trump claims to have found contains nothing new. The claim by Cohen that he “used his own personal funds” for the Daniels payoff has been a part of the public record for at least five years. Cohen told the same story to the New York Times on February 13, 2018. And that article was referenced in a March 8, 2018 letter sent to Trump by the then-ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Jarry Nadler, seeking more information about the hush money.

What’s more, the phony surprise by Trump is all the more preposterous considering that the claims by Cohen in his February 8, 2018, letter to the FEC were rendered moot when he later pleaded guilty to lying about that. It were those lies that sent Cohen to prison. The Justice Department explicitly referenced these claims in their charging document on August 21, 2018, and noted that “COHEN caused and made the payments described herein in order to influence the 2016 presidential election.”
So to summarize, Trump is bragging that he “found” a letter wherein Cohen lied about matters that everyone already knew that he lied about because he pleaded guilty to doing so and even testified before Congress to that effect. If this is the best that Trump can do to extricate himself from this mess, no wonder he resorts to infantile insults and name-calling. He’s desperate and afraid and at some level knows that he’s going down.

For God’s sake, let’s get this started! So Cohen lied and we all know it He had to pay the the price for Trump, and Cohen is telling the truth now Trump has spent his entire life lying Talk about beating a dead horse The sooner this criminal is indicted, the better. Reagan’s trickle down economics didn’t work Maybe trickle down justice will And Bragg will encourage the other indictments Trump is lined up for to take place The sooner the better.
I am getting a sinking feeling this orange baboon is going to weasel out of this too. I too, wish they would hurry up and do something with this lifelong crime ridden bastard. If by some miracle this baboon is indicted, i hope he is put in a prison cell with moldy bread and contaminated water to eat and drink. If his MAGAT protesters start trouble in New York, they will be arrested and thrown in jail too. I am sick and tired of this Fascist BS going on here in the USA. If Fascism takes hold here, it will be the end of the United States as we know it..
Wow! Trump “thinks”? Sorry, that really doesn’t make sense. 🙂
Seriously, we are constantly confronted with the recognition of how the Traitors would treat anyone NOT Their God who acted as Their God DOES! It is truly stunning how the Traitors will justify or accept what Their God does and find some way to claim that anyone ELSE who does anything close to what he does must be hung at sunrise. Without ANY self-awareness whatsoever. The KKKult of the SubMoron is so amazingly all-consuming that I simply cannot understand it. What IS it about Their God that inspires such total devotion?
I guess we will never know.
