Lydia – comments thread: Everyone whose brain isn’t eaten away by TDS recognizes that Bragg’s persecution is just part of the larger conspiracy to destroy Donald Trump. This was the first volley in the battle for 2024. At least three more battles are already planned as a pincer movement. There are salivating wolves in Georgia over the 2020 vote count, the classified documents farce led by Jackoff Smith, a crazy woman named E. Jean Carroll who says Trump raped her in a department store 27 years ago, and the DOJ likely taking up the Jan 6 “Insurrection investigation.”
This is weaponized “justice” perpetrated by a corrupt regime. They began with the weakest case that is made up and illegitimate that can’t even name the supposed “felony” committed. I think at this point, even if Trump said he will not seek reelection, the persecution would not end. This is vengeance by a party of psychopaths who are out to destroy the man who interrupted their plans to crush America. We are well on our way to complete totalitarianism.
It’s not just about kneecapping Trump’s campaign and election possibilities, it’s showing every person living in America and elsewhere that “law” is what the regime says it is. You have no rights or protections. This is a regime hell bent on overthrowing the leader of another country, using an equally corrupt proxy to do so, “for as long as it takes.” They are not interested in peace; they foment war, division, and chaos.
Followed up by Tony_Petroski: Meanwhile, we pretend that this is just hardball politics when the real goal is crushing forever any opposition to Leftist supremacy. They don’t give a damn about the “soul” of America; they intend to own it and every body within it. Well-said Lydia. “It’s not just about kneecapping Trump’s campaign and election possibilities, it’s showing every person living in America and elsewhere that ‘law’ is what the regime says it is.”
Recently, Xi Jinping, also known as the New Great Helmsman, the dictator of China, was made “Chairman for Life” in an “election” conducted by communist apparats. At the party congress, Xi made a great show of having one of his chief rivals arrested and hauled away right in front of everybody else there at the congress. The minions understood what it meant. Incidentally, the Leader of the Free World, Joe Biden, debased himself and, after being summoned to Xi, and after bowing, congratulated Xi on his “election.”
Now a Democrat apparat, on orders from the Democrat hierarchy, has arrested Candidate Trump on national television. The Bold and the Beautiful was interrupted in order to show the Timid and the Ugly book Candidate Trump into custody in Manhattan, the beating heart of our National Socialist media. If they can book Candidate Trump on trumped-up charges, they can book you too. Charlie Six Ways Schumer is smiling the smile of a Cheshire cat.

If these trumped up charges were being used to disable a candidate in, say, Egypt or Russia, the U.S. State Department would condemn these tactics.
We just have to demonstrate that he will not take power if he does run, making sure he—under legitimate efforts of our Constitution—does not become the next president again,” Joe Biden said of Donald Trump in an often overlooked remark just a few months ago.
On Tuesday, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, acting as an agent of Biden’s campaign strategy to eliminate his most likely political opponent, finally unsealed the pretextual indictment being used for just that purpose. Over and over again, the indictment claims Trump, “with the intent to defraud and intent to commit another crime and aid and conceal the commission thereof, made and caused a false entry in the business records of an enterprise.” But it fails to identify 1) the false statement, 2) why the statement was supposedly false, 3) the person or entity Trump supposedly intended to defraud, and 4) what crime Trump supposedly tried to cover up. These are nice-to-know details.
As we’ll see, the available public record strongly indicates these gaps cannot be filled with sufficient facts to support a criminal charge. These aren’t criminal charges. This is a publicity stunt.
This operation to kneecap Trump’s electoral chances would not have been possible without a sweeping and coordinated disinformation campaign by supposedly independent legacy media outlets. It matters not whether one reads the New York Times, NPR, or another supposedly serious legacy media platform. The lack of serious legal analysis in all of them is apparent, as is their preference for innuendo and providing laundry lists of other unproven allegations.
The legacy media have overlooked a long list of weaknesses in the legal case against Trump. Let’s walk through a few key points the get-Trump media and their cult won’t consider.
1) What does the statute in question actually criminalize?
The district attorney is attempting to criminalize the way in which Trump recorded the reimbursement to Michael Cohen for a non-disclosure agreement with Stormy Daniels. [-]
2) Was Trump’s statement false?
Bragg is trying to prosecute Trump because of the way internal bookkeeping recorded payments to Cohen, who was Trump’s attorney at the time. Trump apparently labeled these expenses “legal fees” instead of something more specific detailing a non-disclosure agreement. [-]
3) Did Trump intend to defraud anyone?
In Trump’s FEC filing, he wrote, “In the interest of transparency, while not required to be disclosed as ‘reportable liabilities’ on Part 8, in 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump’s attorneys, Michael Cohen. Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen in 2017. The category of value would be $100,001-$250,000 and the interest rate would be zero.” [-]

In closing, and while not a legal point, I would add to his list that one of the biggest weaknesses of the case against candidate Trump is that it’s seven years old. Any fool can see that if a real felony…or thirty four felonies, had been committed seven years ago, a case would have been brought by the Justice Department of the United States long ago. I’m surprised Democrat apparat Bragg didn’t charge candidate Trump with “making false statements to Billy Bush.”
“The selective investigation and prosecution of election laws based on the political orientation of the candidate is a clear violation of international standards of election fairness.”
Ahhh…it’s too bad Jimmy Carter is ailing. Mr. Carter used to be instrumental in certifying phony elections for the Venezuelans and the Colombians. He could still be wheeled-out to certify that the ballot-stuffing, even in his home state of Georgia, is perfectly legal and on the up and up, and the Third World tactics now unleashed upon candidate Trump are within international standards. Stormy Daniels long-ago hush-up
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
