Trump indictment may just be the beginning of a dark new epoch in America

Former President Donald J. Trump was officially indicted by a New York grand jury on Thursday, presumably in connection with his alleged hush money payment to Stormy Daniels back in 2016, which has been under investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.Trump has become the first former president to face criminal charges, and it marks the beginning of a dark new epoch in American history.

The left has been trying to charge Trump with any crime they could possibly come up with for the better part of a decade at this point.

First there was the Russia hoax and Mueller investigation in which Trump was accused of colluding with Russia to rig the 2016 election. That investigation ultimately vindicated Trump as it failed to produce any evidence at all.

Then there was the impeachment over Trump’s conduct in regard to Ukraine. The case was very weak and he was acquitted.

And then they impeached him a second time for “incitement of insurrection” after he gave a peaceful speech on January 6th shortly before police allowed a bunch of his supporters into the Capitol and showed them around the place. He was again acquitted because the case was so weak.

After that, the FBI raided his home in search of allegedly classified documents. Documents which Trump could have declassified at any point during his presidency without having to go through any formal process and without the need to notify anybody.

For the last seven years, Democrats have not even taken a breath as they’ve brought weak case after weak case in an effort to take Trump down. It is a clear pattern of attempts to weaponize the justice system against their number one political opponent.

And now they’ve finally indicted him for an alleged hush money payment to Stormy Daniels from seven years ago — a case which federal investigators have already opted out of prosecuting on two separate occasions. They have indicted a former president for a case that many legal scholars say is at best a misdemeanor that would’ve surpassed its statute of limitations five years ago.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turly ripped into the case yesterday. “The indictment may come out with a crime that none of us have heard of,” Turley said. “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 of limitations, and revive it by connecting it to a federal crime, in this case, the federal election violation”

“Now, there’s a host of problems with that,” Turly continued. “First of all, it’s a federal crime the Department of Justice chose not to prosecute. Bragg’s own predecessor declined to prosecute it, but he is attempting to bootstrap that federal crime into a state case. And if that is the basis for the indictment, I think it’s rather outrageous. I think it’s legally pathetic.”

This move by the Manhattan DA and grand jury is not only pathetic. It sets a very troubling precedent which opens the door to the very end of the United States as we know it.

Donald Trump is officially the first former president to ever be indicted. Indicted for a preposterously weak case brought by a district attorney who has a track record of refusing to prosecute real crimes in New York City.

There is now a very real precedent for weaponizing the justice system against former presidents and political opponents without presenting a serious case.

The Democrats have opened a very chaotic door with this one and the only chance we have to recover from it is for Republican district attorney’s to begin prosecuting high profile Democrats. Then there is at least a chance that Democrats will think twice before pulling something like this in the future.

The fact of the matter is that we now live in a banana republic where the justice system is merely a weapon for the ruling regime to wield against political dissidents and former leaders. That is the exact opposite of what the United States has represented for the entirety of its history up until now. And it’s all because the left simply could not resist doing whatever it took to get a mugshot of Trump.

Trump himself condemned his indictment in a statement, describing it as political persecution, “This is political persecution, election interference at the highest level in history. From the time I came down to golden elevator at Trump Tower and before I was sworn in as president, the radical left has been involved in a witch hunt to destroyed the make America again movement. You remember it like I do. Russia, Russia, Russia, the Mueller hoax, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine. Impeachment hoax 1 and impeachment hoax 2.

“The illegal and unconstitutional mar-a-largo raid and now this. The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to get Trump. But now they have done the unthinkable indicting an innocent person.

” Never before in our nation’s history has this been done. The Democrats have competed including spying on my campaign but weaponizing the justice. Alvin Bragg is a disgrace, hand picked by George Soros. Rather than stopping the crime wave taking over New York City, he’s doing Joe Biden’s dirty work, ignoring the murders and burglaries and assaults he should be focused on. This is how Bragg spends his time. I believe this witch hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden.

“The American people realize exactly what the radical left Democrats are doing here. Everyone can see it. So our movement and our party, united and strong, will first defeat Alvin Bragg and then we will defeat Joe Biden and we’re going to throw every one of these crooked Democrats out of office to make America great again.”
