Trump has been on a crusade to retake the White House since 2020. He may never get the chance.
Because Donald Trump’s life just changed forever.
The radical Left has been doing everything in their power to take down Donald Trump since he became president in 2016.
Former President Donald Trump alleged in an early Saturday morning social media post that “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office indicate he would be jailed next week.
Trump’s comments come after NBC News reported that federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies were reviewing security assessments and planning for the possibility that Trump could be indicted next week by a Manhattan grand jury in connection with a $130,000 hush money payment he allegedly made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“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,” Trump posted to his social media platform. “PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”
The arrest of a former president and current White House candidate would be extraordinary, especially given that the underlying complaint is a misdemeanor from six years ago.
Prosecutors are anticipated to charge Trump with a felony, claiming that the alleged crime was done in order to conceal an unlawful campaign payment, a case that some legal experts have described as dubious.
The issue surrounds an alleged payment paid to Daniels during the presidential campaign by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to keep quiet about an alleged 2006 tryst between Trump and Daniels. Cohen pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to prison.
Although non-disclosure agreements are lawful, Trump may have a problem with how his firm reimbursed Cohen. The payment was classified as a legal fee, and the company claimed a retainer agreement with Cohen as justification.
The retainer agreement did not exist, and the reimbursement had nothing to do with Cohen’s legal services, setting up a potential misdemeanor criminal allegation of falsifying business documents.
According to the report, Trump himself signed several of the cheques to Cohen while he was president.
Prosecutors can charge Trump with a felony if they can show that his “intent to defraud” included an intent to conduct or conceal a second offense.
Authorities argue that the $130,000 hush payment constituted an unlawful donation to the Trump campaign since it was paid to stop a story in order to promote his presidential campaign.
Some, like Twitter CEO Elon Musk, predicted: “If this happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory.”
Former Vice President Mike Pence expressed surprise at Trump’s claim during a radio appearance.
“You have literally a Democratic party that’s literally dismantled the criminal justice system in that city, undercut the NYPD, and this is what the Manhattan DA says is their top priority?” Pence inquired. “It reeks of the kind of political prosecution that we endured back in the days of the Russia hoax and the whole impeachment over a phone call.”
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who endorsed Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis this week for president, defended Trump, writing: “The impending indictment of President Trump in NY must be treated as it is: a politically-motivated prosecution based on a strained, convoluted legal theory.”
“Arresting President Trump over a 2016 event which is of dubious illegality is another sign of the left’s insanity,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said. “To arrest a former and future President is an act of hatred and poison and will further harden support for Trump while discrediting the left. Remember Hunter Biden!”
Other legal experts, including Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, weighed in and said they thought the case against Trump was weak.
