Trump has called the investigation a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

Another typical Democratic Party fishing expedition.

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

It actually does appear to be a "slam dunk" - the radically different valuations are there is black and white. The question is how he ever managed to get away with it for so long.

Vance and Bragg are Democrats. No former president has ever been charged with a crime.

Trump should have been put in jail in the 90's like another relic, Leona Helmsley.

Similar parasitic rentier "business-people".

A “slam dunk” doesn’t take 3 years and also results on points on the scoreboard. You have no points on the scoreboard.

this is just left open to allow liberals to say “but Trump is under investigation!”

for all that means. he is leading in the polls for 2024 so people know it’s nonsense. But muh Jan 6!

If you put it that way a lot of people in Washington should have gone to jail as well a long time ago. There are more people in congress that should have gone into business rather than politics because they definitely weren’t for helping their constituents.

Trump has called the investigation a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

He's putting on the projectionism 'wah' game again. He's a criminal, a fascist and a traitor and now it's 'Poor pitiful me! Nobody likes me, everybody is ganging up on meeee! Waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!'

He has done his damndest to destroy America and its democracy and as such, he must pay the full penalty!

Good, though to be honest, he still has three other criminal investigation ongoing...

Since Ivanka and Jared voluntarily cooperated with the Jan 6th commission, maybe they'll have a change of heart and cooperate with this one too. What will that make them then? Traitors X 2?

One has to wonder though if they'll "pull an Eric", and "plead the Fifth" over 500 times....LOL.

Interesting he did that considering what his father said...

"You see the mob takes the Fifth," Trump said during one rally in Iowa. "If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?"

Good question Eric, if you're innocent, why did you "take the Fifth"?

Welcome to MAGA-world....

Who is going to investigate Bragg? Somebody got to him, that's painfully obvious.

Well, no…you need to be convicted of a crime. In the eyes of the public opinion that’s a different matter, as far as we are talking about legal matters, he’s neither of these and there’s no insight that he will ever be convicted let alone being charged.

and now it's 'Poor pitiful me! Nobody likes me, everybody is ganging up on meeee! Waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!'

Actually, it’s the other way around. For the last 5 years the left have been more obsessed with this man than with their policies that are destroying this country and as a result, they’ll be out of power this fall and the former President might very well make a comeback.

He has done his damndest to destroy America

No, he didn’t leave the border open, he didn’t start any wars, he didn’t attack the 2nd amendment, he deeply supported the 1st amendment, he didn’t try to shrink our military or our space industry, he didn’t attack religious freedoms, he didn’t attack small businesses or taxed them out of existence, he didn’t support rising gas prices and he certainly didn’t push to stay dependent on foreign oil. So with all due respect, what on earth are you talking about???

he must pay the full penalty!

Pay for what? Looking at the decline and (rapidly) of this nation it seems like the only way to save it after next year is for this President to swing right in the middle if he wants to save what little legacy he will have working with a Republican congress, that will be his last chance.

As an "ordinary Joe" without any law credentials following the investigations into Trump's evident criminal conduct and reading about the hundreds of witnesses who have given evidence vis-a-vis January 6 and the blatant flouting of the law by Trump's enablers higher up the totem pole who refuse to explain their role to Congress, I keep asking myself the dumbest question that has eluded every single lawyer and pundit appearing in MSM and which, to the best of my knowledge, nobody has ever dared to utter in public: why don't the investigating bodies cut to the quick and summon the "EX" himself to come forward and give his version of events under oath? Can anyone give me a rational explanation for the public silence over 45's non-appearance before the investigating authorities? The only answer I can come up with is the same cowardice of the political establishment to indict, try and jail a Potus which let that crook, Nixon, off the hook. Perhaps this also explains why Michael Cohen served time while "Individual 1" still remains at large.

Yep that lack of any evidence got to him.

The one good thing that has come out of the investigation is that banks refuse to touch the trump criminal empire. They are running out of money fast and bankruptcy is coming soon.

trump deserves prison, but knowing him, he will sacrifice one of his despicable brood to stay out.

One thing you can be sure of it will not be ivanka!

More like they just didn’t have anything on the guy and they’ve been at it and continue to try and an fail.

They are running out of money fast and bankruptcy is coming soon.

Wouldnt be the first for him and he can use the bankruptcy laws as they were designed to restructure himself again, that’s a good thing.

trump deserves prison,

For what???? Anyway, it’s just not going to happen.

I can think of hundreds if not thousands of allegations, bombshells and the walls are closing in.

99%+ were found actually not true later or have yet to be proven.

our favorite Trump hater here screamed “Stormy” for years. What happened? She lost in court twice, owes Trump half a million dollars and Dem presidential candidate Michael Avenatti and Michael Cohen went to prison.

thats innocent+

No argument there and include McConnell, Pelosi and Romney .

Though Romney actually has been the head of a big, profitable business and doesn't hide that he is a fat cat and represents the investor class.

Whereas the other 2 you mentioned do.
