The legal comeuppance of Donald Trump is continuing on its course in a fairly rapid fashion since he was officially indicted on 37 felony counts ranging from obstruction of justice to violations of the Espionage Act. A trial date has been set at August 14, although there are expected to be routine deferments.
On Wednesday special counsel Jack Smith provided Trump’s attorneys with discovery materials that include grand jury witness testimony. Which means that Trump now knows who will be testifying against him and what they’ve said. And if Trump wasn’t frightened before he was indicted, he surely is now.
The morning after Trump’s legal team received the truckloads of evidence from Smith, Trump took to his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, to vent his seething outrage and fear. in a series of all-caps rage postings, Trump revealed his descent into dread and reached out in anguish for help from his flunkies in Congress…
“CONGRESS, PLEASE INVESTIGATE THE POLITICAL WITCH HUNTS AGAINST ME CURRENTLY BEING BROUGHT BY THE CORRUPT DOJ AND FBI, WHO ARE TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL. THIS CONTINUING SAGA IS RETRIBUTION AGAINST ME FOR WINNING AND, EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY TO THEM, ELECTION INTERFERENCE REGARDING THE 2024 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. IT WILL BE THERE (sic) UPDATED FORM OF RIGGING OUR MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION. LOOK AT THE POLLS – THEY CAN’T BEAT ME (MAGA!) AT THE BALLOT BOX, THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN WIN IS TO CHEAT. STOP THEM NOW!”
Could this pleading be any more pathetic? Here we have a former president imploring his troll army to leap to his rescue from the fearsome clutches of justice. It’s especially pitiful considering that the Republican gnomes he is relying on to do battle with the “witch hunters” are so inept. There is nothing they can do to stop the wheels of justice from turning. Although they have threatened to defund and/or abolish the DoJ and the FBI, which they can’t do without the Democratic controlled Senate and President Biden’s signature.
Trump continues to argue that he is the victim of forces determined to destroy him as “RETRIBUTION AGAINST ME FOR WINNING.” Of course, in the real world he lost decisively to Biden in 2020, his candidates failed miserably in 2022, and he has done nothing to grow his meager and dwindling base of support since then. So he resorts to posting anxious outbursts whining that “The Radical Left Investigations of me now…are a SCAM,” and wild accusations such as…
“Congress will hopefully now look at the ever continuing Witch Hunts and ELECTION INTERFERENCE against me on perfectly legal Boxes, where I have no doubt that information is being secretly “planted” by the scoundrels in charge.”
That’s right. The “perfectly legal Boxes” that he refused to turn over, and purposefully tried to hide, contain documents that were “planted” by law enforcement. Those are the same documents that he previously claimed didn’t exist, or were declassified with his mind, or were all returned, or that belonged to him. And the fact that Trump has “no doubt” as to the information being planted should seal the case since he’s such a bastion of credibility.
For the record, this isn’t the first time that Trump has floated the smear that the documents were planted. And with that inanity, along with his baleful beseeching of Congress for deliverance from the demons of democracy, he can look forward to a future of political purgatory.
