1. The Democrats have just proven that they are even more stupid than we estimated, and they have guaranteed Trump will be elected in 2024.
2. Why should ANYONE trust the justice system, or the FBI, when they have been openly converted into Special Operations units of the Democrat Party?13
i think there will be a backlash on both sides... being the 1st president arrested in 230 years or so comes across as vandicative... before he was actually serving as president he was being impeached... he was accused of pissing on russian girls in a hotel room then other russian violations... then he was impeached again for a phone call which had substance to the truth... then covid came out which you may believe the democrates had something to do with it if you look at insider trading and who they were... now this... a fat pornstar from long ago... who is likely not violated... i hope disbarement happens as a ramification of this... biden has been accused or proven to have taken 10's of millions of dollars but still walks around scott free and will continue to do so because everyone knows they won't touch him or his son... as he sells artwork to china that my ass can do a better job of producing... america has now officially become a banana republic.28
The claim right now is 30 counts of business fraud.
Once the charges are officially released we will see if they were legit. But i think everyone if accused of a crime should be investigated.
So now when the trial begins and the evidence is presented we will know for sure.
But any opinion prior to hearing the trial will be nothing more than a guess.20
What Girls & Guys Said
Yep. Every frivolous attack the state levies against him basically energizes his popularity. He was pretty much neck and neck with DeSantis until this crap started, and now he's pulling ahead.
This is intentional, by the way. The Democrats and professional loser-Republicans want to run Trump because they believe he'll be easier to beat than DeSantis.13
Political advantage? Hmmm... so you don't think Trump the State of NY has legit evidence of tax fraud and other business related crimes? LOL You think Trump has "done nothing wrong", but rather it was his attorneys, accountants and associates who acted on their own, not on his behalf? Everyone around him just "ends up in jail" for no reason other than they're all acting on their OWN behalf?
This isn't political, it's being held accountable for criminal actions. I'd wager that a number of his former insiders are ready to turn states evidence in exchange for immunity, but we'll see. Whatever shit falls on Trump, he deserves for it's all his own doing. Even if he wriggles out of this one, to believe to he's never, ever committed crimes is about as ignorant as believing he's never, ever lied about anything.11
The man is a fucking menace!! He's dangerous and selfish.310
“This is what 3rd World countries might do.” They charge you with a crime, allow you a lawyer of your choice, allow cross examination of witnesses and allow you to mount a defence that you can present to a jury?
Justice done this way is 3rd World quality?
What process do you think would work better?10
I think this is a test run for Georgia. Letting NY have him first on less serious charges will let them see how much trouble his wacko supporters cause and what to prepare for security wise. He probably won’t do any time on these charges. Georgia is probably going to imprison him though.14
At this point it honestly wouldn't surprise me. Trump should have been indicted sooner instead of close to election. Is it possible, this is Democrats way of making Trump look good to Republicans so he gas the edge against Ron DeSantis in the Republican primary?10
This indictment is, to me, a clear overreach and stinks of a politically motivated indictment of the opposition. I am no expert on New York law, but from everything I've read this should be a misdemeanor at best. Since it occurred in 2016 and Trump's official residence was New York till September 2019, the two year SOL seems to have expired. I would not be surprised to see the judge kick this at summary. And I actually expect the indictment to backfire on the D's.10
It's an extremely bad precedent for both parties and Alvin Brag just assured Trump will be elected. This is obviously weaponizing the legal system.20
I don't think this is going to have the result they're hoping for. It's absolutely politically motivated.20
It is interesting to note that as soon as Trump announced he was running in 2024 this BS started. When he came out ahead in all the national polls the democrats started to get desperate.10
OF COURSE it is!! When you're trying to arrest someone for crimes they never committed, WHAT ELSE could it be?14
Seems likely as its so weak and I'm sure he can find something better10
Could be. I don't keep up with politics. Usually when something big is happening with someone high in the government, there's a school shooting the next day.10
That's what you get when you politicize the judiciary. Probably safer not to break the law. The hush money was wasted anyway.10
naw, that's mostly liberal media propaganda.10
Republicans summed up in one picture ^20
its because he broke the law. nothing more nothing less.10
How can it benefit him when he is being charged with a crime? It doesn't make sense..10
No it's not for political advantage. He's been doing a lot of things and getting away Scott free. It's about time somebody spanked him10
It’s going to give the Republicans a huge advantage11

It will be interesting to see how it shakes out. Obviously MAGA-World thinks he can do no wrong and shouldn’t ever be held accountable for anything, so they’ll be galvanized. But adult-in-the-room Republicans seem to be tiring of his act and starting to favor alternatives like DeSantis, they all just seem too scared of Trump-specific voters who otherwise might not even vote to say so out loud.
Trump isn’t as funny as his base seems to think he is, but he at least puts on the act of an insult comic. He’s a bully, and they keep feeding him nerds. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, DeSantis…. all nerds with weak charisma. And Trump is a bully, kind of a stupid one with dumb jokes and dumber nicknames, but a bully nonetheless, and he just eats all of these dorks alive in front of a live studio audience, and that’s speaking his base’s precise language, so they’re just enamored by it. “Smells Like Mean Spirit”🤘😂
What could be real interesting is if Trump doesn’t get the Republican nomination and he decides to run as an Independent, which would obviously split the right wing vote, or maybe even if Liz Cheney or some other right-leaning candidate ran against Trump as an Independent, if he was the Republican nominee.
And if more indictments come down, who knows, because this case would be the least of Trump’s worries. Plus court scheduling is never prompt, it’s always like 6 months to a year before a trial even gets going. He might be fighting charges throughout his whole campaign, and then if he’s found guilty in a court of law by a jury of his peers, when you can’t just cry “political witch hunt” anymore, that’s even more turmoil. Trump is a wealthy elite, and wealthy elites don’t tend to see the inside of prison cells in this country, so I feel like he’ll evade doing time, but if I’m wrong…. can he be the president from prison? I’m not sure there’s even anything disallowing that, not that I know of, anyway, but man, that would be wild😂
Yes, you can run for President if you're indicted, convicted, or even if you're in jail. Lindsay Graham lost his mind again on TV predicting a Trump nomination and now a win DUE to the indictments. He doesn't realize that being indicted and/or convicted is NOT going to make anyone who wasn't going to vote for him suddenly for sorry for the guy and change his mind!
A conservative running as an independent hands the election to the Democrats. No thanks!
