Important reminder, The State Dept use CNN. The CIA/DNI use Washington Post. The FBI/DOJ and domestic IC use New York Times and Politico.
About the pending Manhattan indictment, yesterday we noted, “A delay in the timing would seem likely given the nature of the political winds that generally coordinate to manipulate public opinion. An indictment timed in support of, and in concert with a Ron DeSantis campaign launch, would be more appropriate given the nature of the intentions.” (link)
Today, Politico reports:
NEW YORK — The Manhattan grand jury examining Donald Trump’s alleged role in a hush money payment to a porn star isn’t expected to hear evidence in the case for the next month largely due to a previously scheduled hiatus, according to a person familiar with the proceedings.
The break would push any indictment of the former president to late April at the earliest, although it is possible that the grand jury’s schedule could change. (more)
The common interest?
“DeSantis will head to Jerusalem, Israel, for just his second trip abroad since becoming governor in 2019. Amid the recent turmoil in the country, DeSantis will talk about the importance of the U.S.-Israeli relationship during a April 27 speech at the Jerusalem Post and Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem “Celebrate the Faces of Israel” event.” (link)
Everything in the corrupt world of manipulative politics is connected to itself by the interests of those conducting the manipulation. An ideological alignment of individual people, institutions and organizations working in concert toward a common goal is not a conspiracy.
Once the objective of the common interest is identified, all benefactory components operate individually. What becomes visible is the similarity of the actions.
Shades of blasie-ford!
It’s a fishing expedition.
The DA Bragg is looking for a better bait to put on the hook since his grand jury didn’t bite on what he’s already tried.
A bottom of the barrel DA courtesy of the scumbag Jew hunter George Soros.
Soros and his kind want to whole Free World under Socialism that’s why their holding this whole Witch Hunt against trump on fake Charges I mean Soros needs to be deported back to his Home Nation and tried for his war Crimes from WW II and he needs to get the same as any war Criminal Hanged or Shot by a firing squad
Now that the House has demanded a hearing to find out if Bragg is in cahoots with the White House and DNC, Bragg will have to keep the “case” open indefinitely so he can claim to be all sanctimonious and respectful of “the process” and avoid testimony and questions. This is what totally gutless people look like when they are cornered.
This will guarantee President Trumps return to the WH in 2024
We need to take the attention off the transgender mass murderer … quick, indict Trump!
They’re investigating Trump’s hush money payoff to a Playboy bunny. It’s Easter Bunny theme week.
I suspect the really serious charges will come out of Georgia.
This indictment is a joke and will go nowhere. Georgia is another joke. And the special counsel is another joke.
None of the three will ever result in a conviction.
This is going to backfire on the democrats
Election meddling, conspiracy, and racketeering charges…
A bullshit claim backed up by a still picture of a video? Seriously?
Actually, everyone has admitted the ballots were printed the wrong size and not counted. I’m not sure exactly what you are contesting.
Really? Have you got a source outside of Trump’s Bat Cave to back that claim up?
Maybe you should find better news sources than the Ministry of Propaganda.
Arizona election fraud.
Maps of Maricopa country Republican voting hot-spots and malfunctioning voting machines show proof of planned voter suppression and election fraud.
Arizona Democrat hack that oversaw the bungled election (and withheld evidence of election discrepancies from Kari Lake) got a $25,000 bonus.
The Arizona Attorney General (Hobbs, also one of the candidates for governor) suppressed the results of an automatic recount (which favored Republicans) until the lawsuit against her contesting the governor’s race was decided.
Maricopa County, “print to fit” settings arbitrarily changed.
It was reported publicly, greg.
Why do you people lie and pretend public knowledge doesn’t exist?
Reporting alone does not make a thing true, no matter how widely reported it is.
Funny how the incorrect print size for the ballots only happened in Republican areas, it was testified to that it had to be intentional.
Must be nice to run your own election even if it was illegal.
Completely bogus. It was a perfect call.
NYT: Donald Trump has been indicted“Felony charges” still under still sealTECHNO FOG
Breaking news from the New York Times today:
A felony indictment. We’ll have more information and more analysis after the indictment is unsealed. But as we stated yesterday regarding the reported “delays” and the potential charges:
The indictment is an absolute scandal, the banana republic on parade, the prosecutor using the weapons of his office to attack his political opponent.
Bragg and his predecessor’s slow-walking of the investigation, with its inception by Manhattan DA goes back to 2019, evidences both the dubious nature of the case against Trump and the political motivations for prosecuting Trump. Theoretically, this should be a simple case. Yet the investigation went on for nearly five years, despite what they’ve possessed: overzealous prosecutors who wanted to charge Trump with racketeering, the cooperating witnesses, the likely millions of pages of materials from the Trump Organization.
Now suddenly, the insanely pro-criminal Manhattan DA, who demanded his prosecutors reduce charges for violent criminals, is prioritizing law and order. It’s hard to believe there are legitimate reasons – for prosecutors, that means seeking justice – for that transformation. Why bring the case now? It’s the start of the 2024 presidential campaign season.
You can’t help but think of the political calculations that went on in Bragg’s head. Not only does he benefit personally, now elevated to a liberal folk hero after being the prosecutor to finally get Trump (a campaign promise he keeps), but this throws a grenade into the Republican race. Will the GOP base rally to Trump? How will the other candidates respond?
And what will this do for the undecideds and the independents and the swing voters – those who are essential to victory in 2024?
Some of those questions will be answered in the short term. Some of them won’t be answered until election day, assuming Trump gets the GOP nod.
That’s because the case won’t go away. It’s illegitimate and political, but it’s here to stay for the time being. Don’t be surprised if the trial date is set for the first half of 2024. And don’t understate the danger to Trump, who will face a jury of Biden voters. Biden won Manhattan 86.7% to 12.3% according to the New York Times. The jury of Trump’s peers will be friendly to the prosecution. That’s all the Manhattan DA might need to secure a conviction. Trump could very well win on appeal but the damage – which carries national repercussions – might already have been done.
And that’s the whole point of this dirty scheme.
Sounds like an idiot Biden resume’.
Lets investigate who sabotaged the Govenor’s daughters BF car, that kinda stopped a signature verification issue.
One Day After Brian Kemp Called For A Vote Audit, His Daughter’s Boyfriend Was Killed in Car Crash
Just one day after GA Governor Kemp called for a signature audit of the Georgia election, his family was hit with a tragedy.
A young man, reportedly the boyfriend of Kemp’s daughter, was tragically killed in a car accident.
Officially listed as a “Kemp close family friend,” Harrison Deal was also a staffer for Georgia Sen. runoff candidate Kelly Loeffler.
He was only 20-years-old. Very sad.
The police have not released the exact cause of the crash and are continuing to investigate.
Others who were involved in the crash suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.
We’re deeply sorry to hear of this young man’s passing.
Playboy bunny story really really old news. Trump paid for the rights to a story from the National Inquirer….ooooh hot, illegal, nope. The bunny already sold her story she got zip from Trump.
You are so busy being a whiny, crybaby, sore loser bitch that you can’t see it. Your hatred blinds you to reality.
Over 7 years of accusations and investigations, 4th Amendment violations and spying and what do you come up with? Charges that have expired over an NDA. That’s it. You simply can’t see how sadly ridiculous and pathetic you all are. You are jumping up and down, cheering, clinking glasses over a charge that will totally collapse upon first examination. Oh, sure, a corrupt leftist judge might drag this out for a little longer than it should live and would live in a precinct where justice and due process is respected, but you know as well as I do what the ultimate fate of this insult to our Constitution will be.
Our adversaries are laughing at us and our allies are shaking their heads in disgust.
Minutes ago, the New York Grand Jury voted to indict Donald Trump.
Totalitarian police state.
That kills Christians.
We knew this was coming.
Geeze find actual reciepts on Bidens getting cash deposits they had to do this.
What has just been demonstrated is that any former president or current candidate can be indicted. It sets a precedent for the classified documents obstruction case, the Georgia case, and for whatever comes of the federal January 6 investigation.
When Trump twice escaped conviction in the Senate, republicans said criminal matters were the province of the criminal justice system. So here we are.
Nobody is above the law.
There was no obstruction with respect to the classified documents at Mar A Lago. Under the presidential records act, President Trump committed no act of espionage or obstruction unlike biden.
There is nothing in Georgia except a lunatic jury foreman.
January 6 is over and done. jack smith is in a fishing expedition with no bait.
That will be decided in courtrooms, in accordance with the law.
Trump has not been indicted by a prosecutor. He has been indicted by a Grand Jury, based on an evaluation of evidence and testimony.
Yup and on a lighter note
It is a bogus case. A misdemeanor elevated to a felony. Prosecutorial misconduct.
Those moving forward with this illegal indictment don’t have the authority to do so.
This isn’t lawful. It’s tyranny.
It’s Justice—the girl with a balance in one hand, and a sword in the other.
No justice. It’s open totalitarianism.
You can’t arrest people you can’t beat in an election, bub.
That’s what the bad guys do.
Now you’re the bad guy…like a Confederate.
He got his butt soundly kicked in an election and attempted to remain in office despite it. He’s fortunate this ISN’T a totalitarian state. He gets as many lawyers and as much due process as his billions can buy; he can buy more lawyers and legal protection than you or I would every have—but he’s lost his Get Out Of Jail Free card.
The idea that this guy—or anyone—is totally immune from prosecution is an open invitation to totalitarianism.
STATE FARM ARENA.
Idiot Biden groped and raped her.
Politically doomed toadies…
Perhaps you should read a bit about how nations….and especially their rulers…fare when they turn from God and worship false-gods.
Not well. I’d repent if I were you, and keep your distance from anything Democrat or Woke.
You’re not going to escape God’s wrath otherwise.
you said soial media posts changed DT election, but ignore the overt fully documented actions of censorship by your toadies.
I think the White House initiative was to encourage social media platforms to take away the liars’ bullhorns. Gaetz’s witness is obviously a right-wing stooge. It’s not an investigation. It’s a performance.
Does not matter why, you dont understand they had freedom of speech.
You are really dumb.
Blocking stats from the CDC
Blocking reports on Hunters laptop
not lies just things they did not want to be talked about.
Why is the media not reporting important world events?
If you followed any of the above sources, you would realize the graphic is bullshit. CNN, for example. There’s plenty of coverage.
The graphic is a lie.
Flood social media with unchallenged lies, and the liars soon control people’s minds. That’s the bastards’ game plan. Try to teach kids how to distinguish between truth and lies in schools, and the schools come under the liars’ attack.
Have they explained how many edicts from Macron there have been before they all blew a gasket?
Oh SA id sueing Pfizer because the vaccine is not safe or effective.
Yes, that’s how Democrats work.
Yes, you’re the bastard.
Yes, as in Democrat-inspired trans hatred killing 6 in Nashville..the schools under attack.
You mean censorship. The social media platforms CANNOT take away citizens voices…even when they disagree with the regime and reveal their corruption.
Yes, the fake indictment in NYC on Trump is.
I heard someone say if they allowed people to report the number of deaths and injuries reported on the CDC site, it would cause vaccine hesitancy… think about that they intentionally censored the truth so the pharma company could sell more toxins and no one would have informed consent, Pregnant women would miscarry at alarming rates. Keep the fear rolling intentionally with rolling inaccurate death counts.
It’s called “censorship”. All totalitarian police states that fear the citizens knowing the truth do it.
You’ve finally realized the true nature of the idiot Biden regime?
Nobody is above the law.
Unless you’re Hillary, Milley, Pelosi….etc.
You represent a virulent, demonic attack on our nation.
Repent now and avoid God’s wrath.
You mean the one where idiot Biden stole classified documents and made them available to the CCP and allowed Hunter to use them for their influence peddling enterprise? I don’t think that’s a precedent you want to establish, but they’ve certainly done it.
All this is election interference. Democrats must be getting nervous about the massive amounts of election fraud it takes to get Democrats “elected”, so now they use the justice system to destroy candidates before the election.
Well, Democrats are certainly nobodies. Only idiot Biden, the Biden Crime Family, Pelosi, the Clinton’s, Schiff, Nadler, Swalwell, AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Waters, Warner, Menendez, Durbin, Leahey, etc are above the law as long as Democrats control the inJustice System.
Ya I beat you by 6 minutes. Trump has good lawyers this case should be dismissed as the statute of limitations has expired on the bogus charges.
Trump faces more than 30 counts of business fraud in the NY indictment, according to an unnamed CNN source. I suppose we’ll know soon enough, when the charges become public next week.
Yup we will find out.
Keep believing those illegal leakers.
They have already given grounds for mistrial by tainting a jury pool.
Trump is being targeted politically. If they go through with this, they declare themselves a dictatorship.
I just watched Lindsey Graham on Hannity, asserting the 34 charges are bogus—not even knowing what the hell the charges are, or what the evidence is. Twice during his three or four minute spot he tells the audience they must go to Trump’s website and donate money for Trump’s legal defense. Get out those credit cards!
Yet you condemn Trump as guilty….not even knowing what the hell the charges are, or what the evidence is. The fact is, anyone that has followed this with an open and intelligent mind is far more informed on it than you are.
I think the government lost the right to credibly charge Trump when we caught them committing Treason by paying to invent Russia Collusion.
Our government has suffered massive damage at the hands of the Democrats. They obviously don’t care about the longevity of our Constitutional republic and seek to end it.
The trial will determine Trump’s innocence or guilt, not my opinion or your opinion.
Not necessarily. Look at the treatment Gen. Flynn got. Look at the Jan.6th trials. The government lies, blocks witnesses and withholds evidence. A fair trial in the Democrat works is no longer assured.
Dude, anyone outside this country looking in knows what’s going on:
Our gov became a dictatorship, and they are arresting a political rival.
Just like Putin. Just like Xi.
But sure, let’s worry about asking for donations while all those big Billionaires and companies dump money into the regime doing the indicting.
An impartial Grand Jury of 23 US citizens determined that Trump should be indicted, not Alvin Bragg. Unlike impeachment, this is a criminal justice process, not a political process. McCarthy is way the hell out of line, misrepresenting it as such. The House of Representatives doesn’t have a damn thing to say about it. This is a fundamental principle of our constitutional separation of powers.
Trump is even more out of line, trying to override the due process of law with thinly veiled threats of mob violence. I don’t believe a majority of the American people will stand for that.
This is nothing BUT a political process. It is a substitute for an election. Democrats cannot compete with Trump’s leadership and accomplishment.
Fat Ass Bragg needs to appear before the House committee and defend his election interference. He needs to prove he is innocent of obstruction and abuse of power.
So Trump can never be tried for anything, because his followers will always consider it political?
Trump says there will be potential death & destruction if anyone dares to.
Greg this is a genius move by Fat Alvin, everyone now wants a t-shirt with Trumps mug shot to raise money for his campaign.
Its the “deplorable” FU by Clinton all over again.
How about a new line of orange prison jumpsuits with upside-down flags on the back?
According to the U.S. Flag Code, flying the American flag upside down is only meant to be done “as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.”
We are repelling an attack on our nation, currently.
I hope Trump’s security is perfect. I’m genuinely worried about false flag attacks by right-wingers who think he’d be more a useful as a martyr than discredited in a courtroom. Some people are that cynical and that crazy. They WANT the sort of chaos that would follow. There are idiots in Congress openly promoting civil war.
Bullshit. You, along with every other whiny crybaby liberal would celebrate Trump being assassinated. Hell, you staged it enough times to get your rocks on it. You know that is the ONLY way you can be rid of him because he is clean as a whistle and bullshit like that Alvin and the Cheatpunks is pulling won’t get the job done. And, like as not, that could happen right in the NYC courthouse, it is so infested with leftists.
You better be stocking up on more election fraud. You’re going to need it.
Now you’re just playing, greg.
used already by liberal hollywood the new back is orange. try to be original.
No, he just should commit some crime first. Something like obstruction, perjury, extortion or influence peddling. You know, the standard Democrat fare.
As the Democrats go further and further down the fascist road of totalitarianism, something bad will happen. But, since you cheer on the violence your side commits, why do you care?
Whoa, as someone who has repeatedly portrayed himself as a legal eagle, you seem to not know the process on indictments.
Bragg’s very act of taking his “case” to the Grand Jury, is because he was asking the Grand Jury to provide him with an indictment. It then became the job of the jury to say “yes” or “no.” Fat Alvin had already made the determination Trump should be indicted. What he was seeking was ‘Jury authority to procede.
Stop trying to read law. You’re pathetically out of your league.
Presenting cases to a Grand Jury for THEIR determination about indictment is how the process works. The jury considers the credibility of both the charges and the supporting evidence.
Ignore greg. All the paid trolls like him are all saying the exact same things, in unison. Twitter is flooded with them right now.
We all watched our election get rigged, and our legal system get hijacked by our own and by George Soros.
The indictment against Trump isn’t legal, nor is it real.
It’s what dictatorships do when they can’t stop a political rival in a legal election.
These people are EXACTLY who they appear to be.
Traitors taking our country through treachery.
They are losing their grip, and grow more and more desperate.
The Federal Government is now tyrannical and not a legal part of the United States of America.
Good advice. Trolls like greg are fake and do not have sincerity. Best to pay no mind to him.
Well, I find it interesting that greg and people like him don’t even hide the fact they are anti-democracy regime trolls.
He’s a combatant, really. An evil one.
They all hate America and its citizens. They are the epitome of evil.
Meanwhile, 3 months in, the republican-majority House continues to do nothing useful…
Republicans are included in this.
It’s really not about indictments and budgets, greg.
It’s about the last Man standing.
Changing your wording doesn’t make you right, or intelligent.
You are neither.
You are ever the idiot.
Jonathen Turley HASN’T SEEN the indictment, DOESN’T KNOW what the charges are, and HASN’T GOT A CLUE what the evidence might be.
All he is doing is manipulating the minds of FOX News viewers. That’s what FOX does. It’s why they’re presently involved in a billion dollar law suit—the issue being whether or not they have a constitutionally-protected right to knowingly manipulate your minds with lies for ratings and profits, destroying the unity of the nation in the process.
It is the weakest of the three show trials of the left. It is bogus.
We’re going to see how “bogus” it is when the charges are revealed and the evidence is presented in a courtroom. That’s how trials work—when they’re not managed by Senate republicans terrified of offending Donald Trump.
Remember how McConnell pronounced the verdict before the impeachment trial began? This is what happens when that DOESN’T happen.
biden is on par with Putin. Putin goes after his political opponents because he is a dictator. biden is a dictator no different from any other third world dictator.
Putin would have had Trump poisoned. That’s not how things work in the USA.
Comrade Greggie, Jonathen Turley gives an opinion based on his education and experience.
You constantly give your opinion based on emotions, i.e. radical leftwingisms.
And the fact that your full of shite.
Frankly it is a great move on the part of the dumbocrats. They have made an already unbeatable candidate even stronger.
How can he have a meaningful opinion about charges and evidence that no one but a Grand Jury has yet heard?
A Constitutional Law professor (GWU) has the education and experience to be able to understand the charges that have already been leaked out to the public.
You, being a certified moron, do not.
So what are these “leaked charges” you pretend know about? Nobody who’s flapping their lips knows what they are or what the evidence is—Turley included.
Who has claimed they know what the evidence is?
It has leaked that there are 34 charges based on a) state law that has already past the statute of limitations by trying to bootstrap it to a federal law that Fat Alvin has no authority to prosecute.
Shame that CNN doesn’t really inform you. It just gives you talking points.
But then, that helps you remain an idiot.
It is 34 instances of bookkeeping errors. Bad check book entries if you will.
Aww man, book em Dano we got t-shirts and coffee mugs to sell.
Donald Trump will be first president to be arrested since 19th Century leader Ulysees S. Grant was collared for going too fast on his HORSE
This case is about as ludicrous as Grant being arrested
I do not think he will be held in jail. This is a desperate gamble, on the part if the forces of darkness, transparent to people, no longer sheeple and with eyes wide open.
Every time they have attacked him directly, they have ultimately lost, and lost ground. Entities do not take desperate gambles when they are winning.
In this instance, the democrats are taking desperate measures because their backs are against the wall, and they have no choice, as their survival is at stake.
They are not winning.
This is an act of fear and desperation, not an exercise of unbridled power. It will backfire bigly
Actually Grants arrest was legitimate, with his reputation he may have been drinking and driving, but 20 dollars, that was a lot of money back then, would be around 370 dollars today. I hope he learned his lesson and kept it well below a fast trot.
