  • You Won't Believe the Most Outrageous Claim in the Trump Indictment

    The Donald Trump indictment is our Late Roman Republic cirque du jour, and until now I’ve recused myself from writing about it. I had to wait for that one tiny detail to emerge, that one giant tell, so absurd that it required the special attention of the man who invented drunkblogging. Only now, on Day Two of our accelerating descent into Total Banana Republic from Partly Banana Republic, has that absurdity come to light. To see that absurdity in all its slimy glory, we must venture now to the pages of POLITICO, the semi-official mouthpiece of all goodthinking Outer Party...
  • Members of Maine's Congressional Delegation Say Trump Is Entitled to Due Process

    Two members of Maine’s congressional delegation have stated that, despite the high-profile nature of Donald Trump’s indictment on Thursday, the former president is entitled to a fair trial. Maine Sen. Angus King, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said that, like any other case, the burden is on the prosecution. “An indictment by a grand jury is the very beginning of the criminal justice process and does not determine guilt or innocence,” King said. “Under our system, the next steps place a heavy burden on the prosecution — to prove the charges (whatever they may be) beyond a reasonable...

    American Thinker ^ | 3 Apr, 2023 | J.B. Shurk
    The persecution of Donald Trump continues. It seems no accident that within the same twenty-four-hour window, anti-American prosecutors both confirmed their intent to lock up a president for exposing the Deep State's vise-grip over government power and celebrated the conviction of an American meme-maker who had used his First Amendment rights to mock Hillary Clinton's voters before the 2016 election. Highlighting both events as further proof of the country's two-tiered application of "justice," Tucker Carlson correctly noted that the in-your-face double-standard is precisely the point: leftist authoritarians want Americans to fear their power and meekly submit or respond unwisely and...

    Is the title of this piece apocalyptic hyperbole? I wish it were. But everyone in the country and most of the people in the wide world know that Donald Trump has not actually been indicted for the crime of giving hush money to a prostitute. He has been indicted for the crime of opposing the Leftist elites and challenging their control over the political system. For the first time in American history, a politician – indeed, a front-running presidential candidate – has been indicted in order to destroy his political chances. Americans used to take pride in the fact that...

    Democrat Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi is calling for a quick conviction of Trump so that we can all see what he's being charged with. "Just like we do with our spending bills, we should convict Donald Trump of these charges right away so that we can see what's in them," said Pelosi. "Trump has many pages of charges that are probably horrible and we just don't have time to read them all. Doing it this way is much more efficient!" Pelosi's statement was then interrupted by her teeth getting stuck in an ice cream bar she was eating. Sources speculate the...

    The prosecution of Donald Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg won’t dim his political chances — and could actually boost his campaign to retake the White House, supporters and bitter foes alike said Saturday. “Alvin Bragg’s political prosecution is going to make President Trump stronger,” former GOP congressman and New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin told The Post. Even “independent-minded general election voters” could gain sympathy for the embattled Trump as the case over a years-old hush-money payment drags on through the 2024 presidential primaries and beyond, Zeldin said. “Many of them are already raising significant concerns about this...

    When you’re a far-leftist district attorney prosecuting the man the left hates the most, and you have lost the Washington Post, you might want to rethink your position. This is the situation in which New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg finds himself as he continues functioning as the head of the progressive spear to be used to kill former President Donald Trump’s chances of occupying the White House once again.The Post’s editorial board published an op-ed titled “The Trump indictment is a poor test case for prosecuting a former president,” in which the authors cast doubt on the chances that...

    (Mar. 31, 2023) — With the 100% politically-motivated “ham sandwich” and concocted indictment of President Trump announced yesterday, the District Attorney for the Borough of Manhattan – one Alvin (“No Neck”) Bragg, whose campaign for the office received a cool $1,000,000 from a PAC funded by radical leftist billionaire George Soros – can now “brag” that he has moved the borough one step closer to becoming the Banana Republic of Manhattan. Quite apart from the rancid ham sandwich Bragg has extracted from his grand jury, Manhattan’s crime rate now rivals even some of the more legitimately dangerous banana “republics” of...

    You were probably not alone if the news of Donald Trump’s indictment seemed slightly strange: How could something so big — the first criminal indictment of an American president — seem so small? Mr. Trump was not indicted for his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election or for engaging in egregious financial fraud to increase his wealth or even for allegedly obstructing the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, which many once thought was the best avenue prosecutors had to ensnare the former president. Instead, the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, a Democrat, and his team of...

    In some ways, it was the turn of events that Democratic voters had dreamed of and some of the party’s lawmakers had long demanded: After years of telling lies, shattering norms, inciting a riot at the Capitol and being impeached twice, Donald Trump on Thursday became the first former president to face criminal charges. But as the gravity of the moment sank in, Democratic voters, party officials and activists across the country absorbed the news of Trump’s extraordinary indictment with a more complex set of reactions. Their feelings ranged from jubilation and vindication to anxieties about the substance of the...

    Donald Trump can't seem to stop talking about his indictment. But once he's arraigned, it's "extremely likely" he'll be put under a gag order, one expert said. Punishment in New York for criminal contempt could be a $1,000 fine or 30 days in jail. Former President Donald Trump can't seem to stop talking about his indictment. But once he's arraigned, it's "extremely likely" that he'll have to, a former senior staffer with the Manhattan District Attorney's Office told Insider. His freedom to rant on Truth Social and say what he wants about his case at rallies will likely change once...

    So the Democrats decided to indict Donald Trump after all. (I assume that Alvin Bragg would not have proceeded without a green light from higher-ups in the party.) Here, as in so many other areas, we are in uncharted waters. The Democrats have launched a sort of blitzkrieg against our traditions, our Constitution, our culture (at least, our culture as it was), and every form of restraint that makes civil society possible. They have unleashed a wind, and seem serenely confident that they will never face a whirlwind. I don’t know, maybe they are right. I do know that after...

    Good evening comrades, welcome to the brave new world in which political enemies aren’t considered “innocent until proven guilty” — but rather, are graciously afforded “the right to a trial to prove their innocence.” Don’t take my word for it, listen to former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). In reaction to Manhattan Alvin Bragg indicting former President Donald Trump, Pelosi tweeted: “The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law. No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system,...

"Let's be very clear: The Democratic Party has indicted the opposition leader."The exact charges Trump is facing have not yet been released, as the indictment remains sealed,...

    A New York judge on Friday authorized DA Alvin Bragg to make the Trump indictment public. “A judge has authorized the Manhattan district attorney to disclose to the public that the grand jury has returned an indictment in the case of former President Donald Trump, according to a court document.” Reuters reported. Trump has been accused of paying porn star Stormy Daniels, AKA, Stephanie Clifford, ‘hush payments’ through his then-attorney Michael Cohen in a scheme to silence her and stop the story about their alleged affair from being published in the National Enquirer. The payments made to Stormy Daniels did...

    Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz says the indictment of Donald Trump is the “worst case of prosecutorial abuse I have ever seen.” And he’s not the only one calling out this raw exercise of political power over the rule of law. Thursday night, Trump’s attorney echoed that sentiment, declaring, “today the rule of law in the United States of America died.” Trump was charged in a sealed indictment handed up on Thursday that is believed to concern a non-disclosure agreement signed by porn actress Stormy Daniels, which the legacy media calls “hush money.” Daniels was paid $130,000 by Trump’s...

    George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley warned Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg that New York judges, especially at the Appellate level, will not like his case against Trump. He said: “This indictment, if it is reportedly following the theory that we’ve been talking about, is political. It’s a raw political prosecution. The indictment may come out with a crime that none of us have heard of. “But for many months, this bootstrapping theory has been put out there, this idea that you could take a misdemeanor under New York law that has expired, that has a two year statute...

    American Banana RepublicThe indictment of Donald Trump is a tipping point for free government.News of the indictment against former President Donald Trump came yesterday afternoon like a shot heard ‘round the world—but this one heralds the triumph of tyranny rather than liberty. A grand jury empaneled by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has indicted Trump on charges that, while under seal, are likely related to payments Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen made to Stormy Daniels prior to Trump running for president.The irony is not lost on us that Bragg’s entire modus ooerperandi as DA is decidedly against enforcing the criminal...
