Trump’s Indictment & Statement of Facts

Donald-J.-Trump-Indictment (1)




  1. Do I hear “Hail to the Chief” in the background??
    Doxa to Theo, and Blessed Holy Week!

  2. I listened to Trump’s Mar a Lago speech. It was stupendous! Trump has been persecuted by the Dem Jacobins over and over and over. Trump told the nation straight out: the dollar is crashing and the nation is failing. And it is. We all see it. We all know it. Stop Joe Biden! The ship is sinking fast.

  3. It seems Bragg has not produced 34 indictments.
    He has produced the same indictment 34 times.

    • Very astute observation, Brendan. Wish others saw it that way. All I can say is if this originated with Michael Avenatti, I can practically guarantee it had to do with a shakedown of Trump. They should throw out the charge(s) just because Avenatti had something to do with the case. There is a reason he is in jail. This is one time they got it right.

      • It’s not entirely original. It was said of Vivaldi
        that he wrote the same concerto 500 times;
        and of Barbara Cartland ditto for the same book.
        However, in Bragg’s case it’s literally true!

  4. Basically what you have are thirty four instances which represent the invoicing, ledger entry and check stubs (each monthly transaction asserted to constitute three separate crimes) describing a year of hush money payments made by Trump’s attorney. I don’t think that any of that is actually a chargeable offense, but even if it were, the statute of limitations has run on all of it. The whole indictment hangs on the thread of alleging that all of this activity was in pursuit of some other crime. Bragg fails to state with particularity what that crime is, however.

    “In order to execute the unlawful scheme, the participants violated election laws and made and caused false entries in the business records of various entities in New York. The participants also took steps that mischaracterized, for tax purposes, the true nature of the payments made in furtherance of the scheme.”

    This is the only allegation that states a crime which is not barred by the statute of limitations and which might constitute a felony. But no particular federal election statute nor any particular provision of the tax code are stated. Only “He broke the law”, NOT “He broke this law.”

    Either the judge will dismiss it or it will be overturned on appeal and Trump won’t spend a day in jail. I doubt Bragg expects anything different. Even he, in his ideological stupor, really didn’t want to pursue this nothingburger but was dragged kicking and scratching to the courthouse to file it.
