Alvin Bragg hates Donald Trump. Oh, I’m sure it’s something that maybe years of psychotherapy could help him with, but he’s a Trump-hater. And he campaigned on a promise that he was going to “get Trump” somehow in New York State. He was going to do it in the worst way.
And he did.
It was the worst possible way to get someone…through entirely political means. We now know that according to the unsealed indictment of the former president, that there were 34 different charges that he defrauded the people of New York by paying off a porn star to keep her quiet while he ran for president. There’s only one problem.
He did it using personal money.
According to Trump’s lawyers, and to Trump himself, he paid Stormy Daniels off with his own money. It wasn’t from the Trump Corporation, and it wasn’t campaign funds. So, Alvin Bragg is going to have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Donald Trump DID pay Daniels off through one of those two means. See, there’s no crime in paying someone hush money, even in the middle of a campaign. Just like there is nothing illegal in paying off someone from another country to write a totally false dossier against your opponent, and then decrying that they are a Russian spy.
And what Alvin Bragg did by indicting Donald Trump, whether or not he wanted to, was he pretty much guaranteed that Trump would be the GOP nominee come next summer if not actually got him elected president. I know that’s a stretch, so let me outline it for you.
Everyone in the Republican party, from Mike Pence to Jeb Bush has come out in support of Donald Trump on this. Not because they have an undying love for Trump. But it’s because it’s all politically motivated and that’s not a reason to have someone indicted on a criminal charge. If that were the case, Mitch McConnell, AOC, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Cruz, and about 500 others in Washington DC would be wearing orange jumpsuits right about now.
The reason they rushed to Trump’s defense was because this was a miscarriage of justice. It was plain wrong to do, and Bragg stepped over the line. Now, you’ve got people like Ron DeSantis or Mike Pence, or Mike Pompeo, who may have entered the race, and still may up the road, rethinking their decision to run. Trump is going to become much too popular to beat. Why? Simple. The party, and a majority of those independent voters that will come to his aid want to try and right the wrong that’s been foisted on him by an out of touch with reality District Attorney.
So, the odds of Trump getting the nominee just went through the roof. And when this thing plays out, and it has the same outcome as the Russia Collusion hoax, and the two impeachments, a lot of independent voters, whether they originally liked Trump or not, are going to want to throw their vote to him to stave off this injustice in our supposedly “blind” judicial system.
Do you know why it is that Joe Biden, John Kriby, and Karine Jean-Pierre are all silent on the matter? They know the travesty of justice that this is. Anything they say will kill them and become fodder for the right. If they come out in support of Trump, that this was nothing more than a weak over-reach, they damage their own chances. If they come out against Trump, they are going to be vilified like Bragg is already being vilified. So, they sit quietly and don’t say a word. That’s actually the smartest thing they can do right now.
If Donald Trump gets elected president, it will certainly have played a part in his election. He will have one of his biggest nemesis to thank for it. And it’s all because of an asinine campaign promise that Bragg made to become Manhattan District Attorney. He wants to decriminalize rape, murder, theft, and car jackings in the Big Apple, but he does want to chase down political opponents for less crimes than jaywalking.
I will say this. I was in a way hoping that there would have been something more substantial than paying off a porn star for their silence in those sealed indictments. The media all said that there should be something more. There wasn’t. In the end, Bragg proved to the world that he doesn’t have the chops to be the District Attorney in Manhattan, or Moose Jaw. He’s a political hack. And that’s all he’ll ever be.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
