Deranged Trump Says He’s Being Charged for Crimes that Don’t Exist, Even If He’s Guilty of Them

The criminal rap sheet of Donald Trump is longer than that of many organized crime bosses. He even brags when comparing his indictments to those of Mafia kingpin, Al Capone. And he’s not wrong. He is currently facing 91 felony counts in four jurisdictions. And that’s not counting the $83 million civil judgment he was recently ordered to pay for defaming and raping writer E. Jean Carroll.

Stormy Daniels Donald Trump

On Thursday Trump attended a hearing for one of his cases in Manhattan, where he has been charged with financial misconduct and falsifying election funding reports. This is the case wherein he paid hush money to adult film star, Stormy Daniels, in order to keep the public from learning about his perverse personal life and breach of his marital vows.

SEE THIS: Trump’s Attorney Admits that Trump Lied About Making Hush Money Payments to Stormy Daniels

Trump was not required to attend this hearing, but like other such circumstances, he went anyway so that he could hold court outside the courtroom and spread lies to the assembled media. True to form, Trump rambled incoherently for several minutes about everything from crime in New York to what he calls “a real dark period for our country.” But what follows are a few of the more relevant parts of his rant…

“[T]here is absolutely no case here, it’s not a crime. […] What it is, is election interference. It is being run by Joe Biden’s White House. […] This is just a way of hurting me in the election because I’m leading by a lot. […] Even if he’s guilty of something, there’s no crime..”

Trump’s declaration that “there’s no crime” flies in the face of the criminal statutes that explicitly reference the laws that he has broken. He even comes close to a confession when he offers speculation that “even if he’s guilty” there is no crime. Although he neglects to explain how he could be guilty of an imaginary crime.

Furthermore, Trump swerves way off topic by asserting that the prosecution “is being run by Joe Biden’s White House.” He has never provided any evidence of that charge, but only because none exists. It is a state case that the federal government has no role in. And his complaint that he’s only being prosecuted because he’s leading in the presidential race is just another wild diversion from the fact that all of the actual evidence points to his guilt.

Finally, Trump whined about this prosecution taking place during this election year…

“They want to rush it because they want to get it desperately before the election goes, before the election, that’s what they want to do. They don’t care, after the election.”

First of all, it has only taken this long because Trump himself has employed every tactic he could in order to delay it. His complaint that prosecutors are rushing it in order to get a verdict before the election is precisely what they should be doing. The public deserves to know whether Trump is a crook prior to voting. Although there is little doubt of that, it is still best to have a legal adjudication.

More importantly, Trump should also want a fast conclusion. At least he would if he were innocent. In fact, an innocent person would demand to be exonerated before an upcoming election.

Apparently Trump is expecting to be convicted. And who would know better than he what he’s done? Which is exactly why he’s so scared and why he’s fighting so hard to prevent the truth from getting out.

Former NY Prosecutor Righteously Rejects GOP House Judiciary Committee’s Political Theater

The Republican majority in the House of Representatives has made it their mission to malign and disparage President Biden above all other political or legislative considerations. It’s an obsessive determination to poison the electoral landscape for Democrats that is succeeding only in humiliating the Republicans who are engaging in it.

Jim Jordan

Foremost among the GOP persecutors is Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. He is currently presiding over wholly contrived hearings into the activities of Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan District Attorney whose investigations of Donald Trump’s hush money payments to adult film star, Stormy Daniels, resulted in a Grand Jury indicting Trump for thirty-four (34!) felonies accusing Trump of falsifying financial records.

SEE ALSO: Trump Indicted by the Manhattan Grand Jury Probing His Hush Money Payments to Stormy Daniels

There is no question that Jordan is staging these hearings purely as political retaliation. As part of his partisan crusade, Jordan subpoenaed Mark Pomerantz, a former prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.’s office. On Friday Pomerantz complied with the subpoena and showed up for Jordan’s clown show. However, he refused to answer questions, asserting his constitutional and legal ethics rights. In his opening statement Pomerantz said that…

“I am here because I respect the rule of law… What I do not respect is the use of the Committee’s subpoena power to compel me to participate in an act of political theater. This deposition is for show. I do not believe for a moment that I am here to assist a genuine effort to enact legislation or conduct legislative ‘oversight.’ We are gathered here because Donald Trump’s supporters would like to use these proceedings to attempt to obstruct and undermine the criminal case pending against him, and to harass, intimidate, and discredit anyone who investigates or charges him.”

Pomerantz goes on to explain his reasons for declining to cooperate with the “cynical histrionics” of the Committee’s GOP leaders. He cites the District Attorney’s assertions of “claims of privilege and confidentiality to protect the integrity of the pending prosecution and continuing investigation of Donald Trump.” He elaborates further saying that “The charges against Mr. Trump should be heard and decided by a judge and a jury before politicians second-guess their merits.”

Pomerantz also cites the 5th Amendment to justify not capitulating the Committee’s coercion. He maintains that he has broken no laws, but is nevertheless, “not required to answer questions if my answers might be used against me.” He adds that the law “permits me to refuse to answer questions that are not pertinent to legitimate legislative function.” He also notes that attorney-client and work product privileges may also apply to some of the Committee’s inquiries. In closing he says that…

“It gives me no joy to invoke my legal rights, but I am glad that the law allows me not to cooperate with this performance of political theater. As an American I am privileged to have the legal rights that I assert today, and I am hopeful that I live in a country that will continue to respect them.”

Jordan’s rank partisanship has been on prominent display throughout his brief tenure in the chairman’s seat. He also formed a subcommittee on the “Weaponization of the Federal Government” whose sole purpose was to weaponize his congressional power to attack Democrats and run cover for Donald Trump.

SEE THIS: New GOP Subcommittee Chair Openly Admits His Only Purpose is to ‘Make Life Hell’ for Democrats

However, Jordan’s issuance of subpoenas is particularly comical considering that when he was recently subpoenaed by Congress, he impudently ignored it. So why would he expect anyone to respect his summons? Jordan is not someone who should be taken seriously. And Pomerantz responded precisely as any honorable public servant should.

Read Trump’s Raving Arraignment Response as Foretold By His Unhinged Truth Social Rants

The indictment of Donald Trump in the “Stormy Daniels Hush Money Affair” was a predictable trigger for the sort rancid rhetoric that has poisoned his commentaries for years. So it should surprise no one that he has lashed out in the most offensive and irrational manner imaginable in response to his finally being held to account for just a few of his multitude of crimes

Donald Trump Angry

Trump’s unbridled anger at anyone and anything that regards him as less than the savior of humanity, that he delusionally perceives himself to be, has been evident in the remarks that he has been posting on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, for weeks. Many of those remarks have been seething with hatred for his perceived enemies, along with outright threats and fomenting of violence.

RELATED: Trump Warns of ‘Death and Destruction’ if He is Indicted for Crimes that He Actually Committed

Trump’s post-indictment incitements have trickled down to his sycophantic cult followers in the press and politics. For instance…

Trump himself has announced that he will be delivering an address to the public from his Mar-a-Lago bunker on the evening following his arraignment in New York. That should be an entirely ignorable event that would be a pitiful waste of time for anyone considering tuning in. That’s especially true for the media, who must resist the temptation to cover it as if it would contain anything newsworthy.

We all know what Trump is going to say in his self-serving spiel. It will undoubtedly be filled with intense rancor and panicky lies, and be devoid of any coherent substance relating to the law. In fact, it will be just a rehash of his recent social media harangues.

To that end, what follows is a presentation of what can be expected from Trump so that no one needs to suffer through it. Every word is verbatim from his Truth Social posts over the past two weeks, except for the words in brackets.

“The Fake News refuses to report this, but now everyone knows. [It’s] Election Interference! These Thugs and Radical Left Monsters have just INDICATED the 45th President of the United States of America. THIS IS AN ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY THE LIKES OF WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE.

“Biden is guilty of Obstruction, I am not! China paid him and Hunter Millions of Dollars. [A] Trump hating Prosecutor and a Trump Hating Judge, hand selected by the Soros backed D.A. [are conducting a] WITCH HUNT, as our once great Country is going to HELL!

“The Corrupt D.A. [Alvin Bragg] has no case. What he does have is a venue where it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to get a Fair Trial. HIS TRUMP HATING WIFE AND FRIENDS [and the] Radical Left Insurrectionists, Extortionists, Crooked Politicians and Thugs that are destroying our Country.

“[We are] a Nation in Decline. [They] Weaponized the FBI & DOJ to Interfere with, Rigg, and Steal our once SACRED ELECTIONS. Now they are using PROSECUTORS to CHEAT. We are now living in a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. [There were] NO ERRORS, NO AFFAIR, NO MISDEMEANOR, NO CRIME, NO CASE! [But] Corrupt Democrat Prosecutors [push a] Fake, Corrupt, and Disgraceful Charge. A Witch Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement.

“These Prosecutorial Scams and Hoaxes are all about Election Interference. How do you indict an innocent man? They’re not coming after ME, they’re coming after YOU! Violent Crime in Manhattan soar[s] to Record Highs In USA history, there has never been anything like this.”

“The Manhattan D.A. Witch Hunt against me is DEAD, no evidence at all. [But] I HAVE GAINED SUCH RESPECT FOR THIS GRAND JURY, & PERHAPS EVEN THE GRAND JURY SYSTEM AS A WHOLE.

“[In closing,] if you are doing poorly, as so many of you are, do not send anything. If you are doing well, which was made possible through the great policies of the Trump Administration, send your contribution to…

That pretty much sums it up. You can all now plan to watch something on TV that is actually entertaining or educational. And you can spend your evening with family, rather than suffering through another one Trump’s televised tantrums. Hopefully the media will give this sociopathic sermon the attention it deserves – NONE!

Eric Trump Spills to Newsmax that His Father is Guilty of Paying Hush Money to Stormy Daniels

The family of Donald Trump is not known for having a particularly notable ration of intellect. After all, Papa Don’s beliefs include that stealth fighters are actually invisible, that windmills cause cancer, that we should nuke hurricanes, that George Washington’s Army took over airports, and that injecting bleach will cure COVID. That’s not exactly the thinking of a “stable genius,” as he refers to himself.

Fox News, Stormy Daniels

In the wake of his indictment by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, Trump has gone into a rabid attack mode, going after D.A. Alvin Bragg and anyone associated with the indictment. He has posted dozens of comments on his failing Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, mostly linking to sycophantic supporters sucking up to his eminence. And he hasn’t been above inciting violence as a means to “protest” his being brought to justice.

SEE THIS: Trump Warns of ‘Death and Destruction’ if He is Indicted for Crimes that He Actually Committed

Meanwhile, Trump’s son Eric is making the rounds of MAGA media to proclaim that his father is just the helpless victim of the cabal of “Deep State,” “Radical Left,” “Communists,” dispatched by George Soros to destroy him. On Friday Eric “Fredo” Trump was interviewed by Greg Kelly on Newsmax. And he was none too pleased with the news that his sugar daddy had been indicted. So he whined petulantly that..

“They go after my father for what? A non-disclosure agreement which every company in the world, every person in the world does? Thousands of these happen every single day. Stop it. No one buys it.”

Really? “Every person in the world” does non-disclosure agreements? That means there are nearly eight billion NDAs out there. Who knew?

More troublesome for Daddy Trump is that Eric is effectively conceding that his father is guilty. Non-disclosure agreements are generally drawn up in business situations wherein one party seeks to prevent the other from disclosing factual, private information. They are not used as responses to falsehoods. That’s what defamation lawsuits are for. So Eric is effectively admitting that Donald’s “arrangement” with adult film star Stormy Daniels was intended to keep the actual facts concealed.

Furthermore, NDAs are generally entered into voluntarily by both parties, even though one party usually has some leverage over the other (i.e. employer/employee). And there isn’t a payment associated with such a contract. That’s what we usually refer to as a “bribe,” or as in this case, “hush money.” Trump’s payment of #130,000 to Daniels is therefore more accurately described as a financial incentive to buy her silence in order to prevent the harm of the scandal from damaging his electoral prospects.

Finally, Eric’s assertion that there was an NDA is not borne out by any evidence. Neither he nor his father has produced a contract or other legal document attesting to the agreement. The only proof that we have of it are the checks Trump wrote to his then-attorney, Michael Cohen, reimbursing him for the payoff to Daniels. And they don’t spell out any terms.

It is not unusual for Trump to publicly incriminate himself. His big mouth is often the source of the best evidence against him. For example…

And even his attorney can’t be depended on to refrain from damaging his legal status…

SEE THIS: Trump’s Attorney Admits that Trump Lied About Making Hush Money Payments to Stormy Daniels

Nevertheless, according to Eric the Dread, his father’s victimhood is devastating. And it is not only impacting Donald, but an array of the – let’s say “ring” kissers devoted to his MAGA cult. Sadly, they are all on the verge of collapsing from the weight of their depression, as noted by Daily Show correspondent, Desi Lydic…

Trump Indicted by the Manhattan Grand Jury Probing His Hush Money Payments to Stormy Daniels

FINALLY! Donald Trump has been indicted by the Manhattan Grand Jury that has been investigating his hush money payments to Stormy Daniels. This will likely be just the first of many indictments to come for a corrupt, life-long criminal who briefly occupied the White House.

Stormy Daniels Donald Trump

The indictment of Trump is still sealed as of this writing, so the specific charges are not yet known. But there is already some speculation among pundits that it contains a felony charge. In any case he will be put under arrest, there will be a booking and a mug shot, and a furious flurry of whining from Trump and his sycophantic cult disciples.

In the meantime, lets recall some of the recent comments from Trump and others leading up to this day…

Trump Can’t Imagine the NYPD Defending the City If His Indictment Triggers Riots By His Followers
“CAN YOU IMAGINE THE GREAT NEW YORK CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT, CORRECTLY REFERRED TO AS ‘NEW YORK CITY’S FINEST,’ WHO, FOR THE FIRST AND ONLY TIME IN HISTORY, ENDORSED A PRESIDENT, ME, & HONORED ME AS ‘MAN OF THE YEAR,’ HAVING TO DEFEND & PROTECT THE ‘DEFUNDERS’ & ‘COP HATERS’ OF THE RADICAL LEFT THAT WANT TO PUT THEIR GREATEST CHAMPION & FRIEND IN PRISON FOR A CRIME THAT DOESN’T EXIST…ALL THE WHILE THE SOROS BACKED D.A. ALLOWS MURDERERS & OTHER VIOLENT CRIMINALS TO FREELY ROAM THE SIDEWAKS OF N.Y.?”

Fox News Hack Tucker Carlson Rants that Prosecuting Trump Would Forever End Democratic Elections
“If the Democratic Party is allowed to do this, allowed to crush the presidential front-runner, the main threat to their power, with a bogus criminal case, where does that leave us? We’re done because that precedent will live forever and voters will never again determine the outcome of a presidential election. It’s remarkable when you think about it.”

Trump Warns of ‘Death and Destruction’ if He is Indicted for Crimes that He Actually Committed
“What kind of person can charge another person, in this case a former President of the United States, who got more votes than any sitting President in history, and leading candidate (by far!) for the Republican Party nomination, with a Crime, when it is known by all that NO Crime has been committed, & also known that potential death & destruction in such a false charge could be catastrophic for our Country? Why & who would do such a thing? Only a degenerate psychopath that truely (sic) hates the USA!”

Jon Stewart’s Snarky Swipe at Nutty Notion that a Trump Indictment Would Make Him a Martyr
Stewart (sarcastically): I think the law should always take into account someone’s popularity. I mean, what’s happened to our country? It’s as though you can’t even commit financial fraud anymore. You can’t inflate the value of your property when you need a loan, and then deflate it with taxes. The next thing you know they’re going to send YOU to jail instead of your lawyer, and your accountant, and your campaign manager, and everyone else around you. The idea that someone may face accountability, who’s that rich and powerful, is outrageous, and this country shouldn’t stand for it.

And let’s not forget that just the day before this indictment, Trump posted this comment expressing his “respect” for the Grand Jury…

“I HAVE GAINED SUCH RESPECT FOR THIS GRAND JURY, & PERHAPS EVEN THE GRAND JURY SYSTEM AS A WHOLE. THE EVIDENCE IS SO OVERWHELMING IN MY FAVOR, & SO RIDICULOUSLY BAD FOR THE HIGHLY PARTISAN & HATEFUL DISTRICT ATTORNEY, THAT THE GRAND JURY IS SAYING, HOLD ON, WE ARE NOT A RUBBER STAMP, WHICH MOST GRAND JURIES ARE BRANDED AS BEING, WE ARE NOT GOING TO VOTE AGAINST A PREPONDERANCE OF EVIDENCE OR AGAINST LARGE NUMBERS OF LEGAL SCHOLARS ALL SAYING THERE IS NO CASE HERE. DROP THIS SICK WITCH HUNT, NOW!”

And that was only a week after he posted a comment stating flatly that that he “WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY” and urging his cult followers to “PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”

“NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”

Trump posted his response to the indictment (and a longer and lie-riddled rant here) saying that…

“These Thugs and Radical Left Monsters have just INDICATED (sic) the 45th President of the United States of America, and the leading Republican Candidate, by far, for the 2024 Nomination for President. THIS IS AN ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY THE LIKES OF WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE. IT IS LIKEWISE A CONTINUING ATTACK ON OUR ONCE FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS. THE USA IS NOW A THIRD WORLD NATION, A NATION IN SERIOUS DECLINE. SO SAD!”

Trump is very upset that he has been “INDICATED”? But he is right that “THE LIKES OF [THIS] HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE.” But that’s only because no president has ever been so flagrantly criminal before. And he’s only going to get worse from here. Stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE: Trump was indicted on 34 felony counts “that Trump falsified internal business records at his private company while trying to cover up an effort to illegally influence the 2016 election by arranging payments that silenced claims” of his affair with adult film star, Stormy Daniels.

WOW! Trump Thinks He Found Proof that Michael Cohen Lied About the Stormy Daniels Hush Money Affair

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.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, National Enquirer

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.

RELATED: Trump Can’t Imagine the NYPD Defending the City If His Indictment Triggers Riots By His Followers

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.

SEE ALSO: Trump’s Attorney Admits that Trump Lied About Making Hush Money Payments to Stormy Daniels

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.

Fox News Hack Tucker Carlson Rants that Prosecuting Trump Would Forever End Democratic Elections

The pandering politicians and pundits propping up Donald Trump are storming the media with mendacious defenses of his criminal misconduct. Among the ludicrous arguments that they throw against the wall is that an indictment would benefit the twice-impeached, reality TV game show host. Perhaps there is some truth to that with regard to the Deplorables already indoctrinated into his cult. However, everyone else would be further repulsed by his recidivist criminality.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Donald Trump

If it would be such a boon to Trump, then why are so many of his glassy-eyed sycophants erupting in outrage? If they really believed that an indictment would propel him to victory, wouldn’t they be rooting for the Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg (and the New York Attorney General Leticia James, and the Georgia D.A. Fani Willis, and special counsel Jack Smith) to bring on their prosecutions? Trump himself is consumed by fear, as exhibited in the flurry of frantic posts on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social.

SEE THIS: The Desperate and Dystopian Delirium of Donald Trump as He Descends Into Drooling Dementia

Naturally, Fox News is joining the crusade to absolve Trump of any responsibility for his abhorrent crime spree. And leading the pack is, as usual, Tucker Carlson. In a tedious harangue on Monday night’s tele-sermon (video below), Carlson unleashed his typically rage-fueled brand of conservative crackpottery. The subject was reporting that Trump might be indicted soon by the Manhattan District Attorney for violating financial and campaign laws, Carlson complained that Trump was – as always – a victim of the all-powerful Democratic cabal that had stolen the election in 2020, and now is determined to – as the Trumpists say – “LOCK HIM UP!”

RELATED: Trump Can’t Imagine the NYPD Defending the City If His Indictment Triggers Riots By His Followers

Carlson’s interminably long tirade rambled aimlessly, flinging baseless and childish insults at Bragg as being funded by George Soros and looking like Al Sharpton (because to racists like Carlson, “they” all look alike). He dismissed the notion that Trump’s “hush money” payoff to adult film star, Stormy Daniels, and the subsequent cover up and obstruction of justice, was a crime at all. According to Carlson, “paying people not to talk about things, hush money, is ordinary in modern America.” And it’s hard to criticize him for that opinion considering that he got his current show on Fox News when his predecessor, Bill O’Reilly, was fired for sexual harassment, for which he and Fox paid out millions to sweep under the rug.

In summary, Carlson concluded that indicting Trump would result in the end of democracy. That’s not an exaggeration of his remarks. That’s precisely what he said…

“If the Democratic Party is allowed to do this, allowed to crush the presidential front-runner, the main threat to their power, with a bogus criminal case, where does that leave us? We’re done because that precedent will live forever and voters will never again determine the outcome of a presidential election. It’s remarkable when you think about it.”

What’s remarkable is that Carlson can pretend that he was thinking when he came up with that. First of all, an indictment of Trump would not be done by the Democratic Party. It would be done by a Grand Jury of local citizens and an elected D.A. Secondly, Carlson’s characterization of this as “a bogus Criminal Case,” is purely his biased, dishonest, and ill-informed opinion. And finally, there is no logical path from indicting a criminal like Trump, to the assertion that elections are gone forever. It makes about as much sense as saying that if you wear a hat, your dog will stop talking to you.

Carlson is being especially worshipful of Trump these days as penitence for his recently discovered sacrilege. Internal communications released by Dominion Voting Systems in the billion dollar defamation lawsuit against Fox News reveal that Carlson told his Fox colleagues that he “hates [Trump] passionately.” And in the rarified world of Trumpism, that could not be allowed without Carlson being forced to atone. So you end up with nonsense like this. But sadly, no amount of up-sucking will ever be sufficient for Trump.

Trump’s Attorney Admits that Trump Lied About Making Hush Money Payments to Stormy Daniels

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is said to be close to making a decision about indicting Donald Trump in the Stormy Daniels hush money case. Trump is alleged to have committed campaign finance violations related to his paying the adult film star $130,000.00 to buy her silence prior to the 2016 presidential election

Fox News, Stormy Daniels

This is only one of the many pending civil and criminal cases that are cluttering Trump’s legal calendar. He is also being investigated by the New York state Attorney General, the District Attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, and a federal special prosecutor, Jack Smith, probing a pair of offenses: his theft and hoarding of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, and his role in inciting the January 6th insurrection. Trump is taking these matters seriously, as is evident in his fierce and fear-driven reactions.

SEE THIS: Trump’s Raging Fear is on Vivid Display as He Hurls Infantile Insults at New York Prosecutor

Trump is actually so frightened by the legal peril he is facing that he dispatched his attorney, Joe Tacopina, to MSNBC’s “The Beat, with Ari Melber.” Trump and his lawyers must be awfully desperate to agree to an interview on MSNBC, a network that he regards as fake news delivered by radical communists on witch hunts.

Melber gave Tacopina more than ample time to state his case on behalf of Trump. the problem is that he doesn’t have a coherent case to make. And that came out during the following exchange…

Melber: If all of what you say is true…
Tacopina: It is.
Melber: Then why was Trump hiding and lying about it at the time?
Tacopina: If that’s what you’re gonna consider a lie. A lie to me is something material, under oath, in a proceeding. Here’s why it was not a lie. It was a confidential settlement, so if he acknowledged that, he would be violating the confidential settlement. So, is it the truth? Of course it’s not the truth. Was he supposed to tell the truth? He would be in violation of the agreement if he told the truth. So, by him doing that, by him doing that he was abiding by, not only his rights but Stormy Daniels’ rights.
Melber: It seems like we’re drawing some blood here because you’re having a strong reaction. He did lie about it, and in a confidential settlement you can easily say, “No comment” or “I’m not getting into it.”

Melber is right. Trump could have have said “no comment” or declined to respond, rather than to blatantly lie to everyone. But more problematic for Trump (since lying is no big deal for him) is that his lawyer’s excuse for lying was to openly admit that he did, in fact, lie. “Of course it’s not the truth,” Tacopina said. But he claims that he doesn’t consider it to be a lie because it wasn’t said under oath, and because Trump was constrained from disclosing any details of his confidential settlement with Daniels.

However, if it would be a lie had it been said under oath, or absent a non-disclosure agreement, then it’s still a lie. If someone who never attended college says they graduated from Harvard, they are lying whether or not they are under oath or subject to a confidentiality agreement. They may not be committing perjury or breach of contract, but they are lying.

Trump’s lies were in furtherance of a criminal act. He was trying to cover up his illegal campaign expenditures. And now his attorney just conceded that Trump is guilty. He affirmed Daniels’ allegations against him. And he effectively handed a legal victory to the Manhattan District Attorney.

Trump’s next move will likely be to fire his attorney, who he’ll accuse of being a “woke” RINO who is aligned with Antifa and paid by by George Soros. Because he sure doesn’t have any credible legal course of action to take.

UPDATE: Trump was indicted on 34 felony counts “that Trump falsified internal business records at his private company while trying to cover up an effort to illegally influence the 2016 election by arranging payments that silenced claims” of his affair with adult film star, Stormy Daniels.

Egomaniacal Trump Whines that Criminal Investigations of Him Make America’s Enemies Happy

It’s often said that the wheels of justice turn slowly. That’s especially true with regard to Donald Trump. It’s partly true because Trump has proven to be adept at delays and deflections, and partly true because prosecuting a former U.S. president is an unprecedented act, although warranted considering the unprecedented criminal behavior of Trump.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

Justice’s wheels, however, may be approaching a destination. The Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, has invited Trump to give testimony in the “hush money” case wherein he is accused of breaching campaign finance laws by paying porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000.00 to buy her silence. That invitation is considered to be an indication that charges are likely to be filed soon. Consequently, Trump is ramping up his fear-driven attacks and pitifully infantile insults.

In a midnight post on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, Trump appeared in a sinisterly dim lit video to express his dread of the legal tribulations that await him. It was a typically demented commentary that affirmed his seething anxiety and hostility. Trump raged that…

“Our country has become the investigation capital of the world. Actually, that’s all we do. And it’s only good for our many enemies, our enemies that are laughing at us all over the world. They could not be happier as they brilliantly plot our demise and destruction. We have to get back to making America great again.”

Notably missing from Trump’s rant were any details of the investigation he’s so disturbed about, nor any declaration of his innocence. And consistent with his acute case of malignant narcissism, Trump thinks that any adversity for him is actually an attack on America. If there’s any truth to the claim about “our enemies that are laughing at us,” it’s clearly brought on by the orange-faced, ferret-headed, clown that can’t form a coherent thought.

Trump may be right that our enemies “could not be happier…as they plot our demise.” However, what is making them happy is not Trump’s legal problems. It is the prospect of another Trump occupation of the White House, or at least the division he creates in American politics that weakens us internally.

Just prior to Trump’s posting of this video, he unleashed a barrage of comments that further expose his foreboding of the future. For instance…

“The Democrats are using their Prosecutors to try and steal another Presidential Election […] Will be a lot tougher for them to Cheat and Rigg the Election.”

That’s right, “Rigg!” Also, after two years and 60 court cases, Trump hasn’t produced a shred of evidence of a stolen election.

“Racist, George Soros backed D.A., Alvin Bragg, is relying on the testimony of a convicted felon, disbarred lawyer, with zero credibility.”

Bragg is Black, and the lawyer whose testimony he is disparaging is Michael Cohen, who was his lawyer for many years.

“I did absolutely nothing wrong, I never had an affair with Stormy Daniels, nor would I have wanted to […] This is a political Witch-Hunt.”

No one has accused him of having an affair, just paying for sex with campaign funds. Which is definitely wrong.

“I, and hundreds of millions of the American People who are backing me […] are the victims.”

First of all, Trump never had hundreds of millions of supporters. Only 74 million people voted for him in 2020, and most of those were Republicans voting against Biden. Secondly, as much as he likes to rope them in, none of his remaining cult followers are the victims of his legal troubles. He alone is responsible for his own criminal conduct.

Trump’s outbursts reveal that he is clearly consumed with fright and is descending into full-on panic. He knows what he did, and he knows that prosecutors know it. Many of his former associates have testified already. And this Manhattan D.A.’s case is just the beginning. There are also cases pending in New York State, Georgia, Florida, and Washington, D.C. So expect more videos like the one above as he sinks into ever deeper states of hysteria.

Trump’s Raging Fear is on Vivid Display as He Hurls Infantile Insults at New York Prosecutor

The surest sign that Donald Trump is being kept awake nights with agonizing anxiety over his precarious prosecutorial problems are the late night comments he posts on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. And on Friday he was raging until after midnight about what a pathetic victim he is of the “Radical Left Democrats” that he also regards as incompetent.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

The demonstrative fear that Trump exudes is evident in how his plaintive whining becomes increasingly frenzied and steeped in childish cheap shots. He throws tantrums aimed at his perceived persecutors that he seems to think will cause them to scurry off and leave him alone. How he comes to that conclusion is a mystery. But it is clearly driven by his malignant narcissism and it is nothing new.

Friday’s fury was likely triggered by the news that Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, has been interviewing Trump insiders such as his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, and his White House Counselor, Kellyanne Conway.

Trumps knows what they know and is obviously concerned that the D.A. will soon know it too. Consequently, he lashed out frantically online in a flurry of late night tirades, beginning with some particularly personal attacks…

“The Racist Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, who is presiding over one of the most dangerous and violent cities in the U.S., and doing NOTHING about it, is being pushed relentlessly by the Radical Left Democrats, the Fake News Media, and the Department of ‘Injustice,’ to bring charges against me for the now ancient ‘no affair’ story of Stormy ‘Horseface’ Danials, where there is no crime and charges have NEVER been brought on such a case before. In the meantime, Hunter & Joe Biden skate!”

There’s a lot to unpack in that barrage of bullshittery. First of all, Trump routinely accuses black prosecutors like Bragg of being racist. He has done it repeatedly when complaining about New York Attorney General Leticia James. Although his harangues have only succeeded in getting him and his lawyers sanctioned for millions of dollars for filing frivolous claims.

Trump also likes to deflect from his own legal peril by accusing prosecutors of trying to “get Trump” instead of addressing other violent crimes. Setting aside that that’s a terrible reason to let him off the hook, Trump is apparently unaware that the D.A.’s office is staffed by hundreds of lawyers who are fully engaged in public safety matters.

Trump’s downplaying of the case against him is a lame attempt to slither out of accountability. The case is neither “ancient” – it involves hush money payments made in 2015 – nor about an “affair.” Trump’s interaction with Stormy Daniels was a one-time sex-for-hire arrangement. However, the charges Trump is facing are related to his payment of $130,000.00 to buy her silence as he was preparing to run for president.

What’s more, Trump’s impotent insult of Daniels suggests that he paid thousands of dollars for sex to a woman he regards as having a “horseface.” Is that some sort of obscure fetish he has? Is he revealing his latent bestiality?

However, Trump was just getting started. His late night rampage continued with a post accusing Bragg of being backed by George Soros, because that’s the goto criticism of every MAGA defendant. He then segued to attacking Cohen again, and reprising his complaint that Bragg is ignoring New York crime.

And if that wasn’t enough, Trump was still awake an hour later, posting another comment whining that the D.A. was “threatening and harassing many people that work for me.” Also known as deposing witnesses. Then he closed by calling the Grand Jury the “modern day Gestapo,” that is practicing a “Soviet style of ‘Justice’ [that] is going to take down the U.S.A.”

Of course, the only thing that this prosecution has the capability of bringing down is Trump and his crime syndicate. And he’s well aware of that. It’s why he’s so frightened that he’s unable to sleep. And it’s why he reached out in desperation to his former White House flunky, Kellyanne Conway in the last of his comments.

Trump congratulated Conway on her divorce from her husband George, because Trump regards failed marriages as occasions to celebrate. Mr. Conway is frequent Trump critic, and Trump’s insufferable pettiness produced his complaint that he is a “wacko” and an “extremely unattractive loser.” Which is another example of Trump accusing others of what he knows himself to be.
