WOW, they are going to ARREST ME

How did it feel, Don? You sound so sad.

What parts of the criminal statutes of a jurisdiction do not apply to any specific individual resident of or otherwise connected to the jurisdiction? Right, none. And when the evidence is shown to bear out what he has already admitted doing... you know the refrain… Lock him up.

17 ( +26 / -9 )

Donald will go down (not just in history) as the worst ex-president!

The man got stuck in the swamp he created.

34 felony counts - people got busted for much less than this!

Rikers Island is waiting for a new "customer"!

10 ( +24 / -14 )

Not to be picky, but did he actually read the list of charges?

9 ( +15 / -6 )

How did it feel, Don? You sound so sad.

We should all be sad. Look at what the US has become.

Political witch hunt and Dem retribution against a former president. Its appalling yet you gloat.

-26 ( +16 / -42 )

You can read the indictment online. There was another $150,000 payment to another woman. The publisher of the National Inquirer collided with Trump to buy then kill the stories and publish derogatory stories about opponents. Multiple LLC’s to hide payments, billing the payoffs as tax exempt corporate legal expenses, on and on.

And the judge warned Trump that he would take action if Trump published more bat to the head of the DA like posts to social media. And he would be removed from the court for any outbursts.

This is still small stuff. The classified documents obstruction and election tampering cases are far more serious. It’s reported that there is much more damaging evidence recently in the documents crimes.

Those are not political cases, they are serious felonies. Anyone else would be in prison already. His days of delay and attack are ending.

27 ( +33 / -6 )

And remember, these 34 felony charges are the least serious of all the charges he's likely to face of all his upcoming cases.

The one weakness in Bragg's case is that all of the charges are felony charges, reliant on the false records being to cover up another crime, which sets a higher bar to secure a conviction. Surely if some were misdemeanour charges, this increases the chances of a conviction of some sort.

Much as I dislike Trump, I don't think that the payments to Daniels are 100% provable as being for electoral reasons. And if the jury can't be convinced that the law was broken in this case, the felony can't be proven.

Perhaps I'm more revealing my ignorance of the law, but I'm not sure that this is a slam dunk.

13 ( +18 / -5 )

It is logical for Trumped-up charges.

-16 ( +7 / -23 )

Political witch hunt and Dem retribution against a former president.

Nope. He's likely a crook and he's facing criminal charges brought against him without fear or favour based on real evidence, and after a grand jury has found probable cause for an indictment.

Many Republicans can easily understand this basic concept, however the Trump worshipping zealots who are incapable of being objective, obviously cannot comprehend it at all.

19 ( +26 / -7 )

a lawyer for Trump, told reporters after the arraignment, adding that Trump was frustrated, upset and angry about the charges....

Trump posted on social media: "Heading to Lower Manhattan, the Courthouse. Seems so SURREAL - WOW, they are going to ARREST ME. Can't believe this is happening in America."

Of course he cannot beleive it. HE IS NOT CAPABLE. The 2020 election clearly showed that: he could not believe what happened - his defeat. The man who has no sense of justice, the man who thinks that justice or election result can be bought like sex - this man cannot understand reality. He is all delusional. He is a sick man, very sick man.

He thinks he can do anything.

No Donald, you cannot.

...this man cannot understand reality. He is all delusional. He is a sick man, very sick man.

Yes. And weak minded people worship him for that.

Hopefully not the last indictment.

This whole debacle will only see his fan base grow even stronger. He’ll likely win the election in 2024.

Right. Just like being impeached helped him win the 2020 elections..wait a minute...

Tuesday to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, as prosecutors accused him of paying two women to suppress their accounts of sexual encounters with him.

34 charges and not a single misdemeanor.

11 ( +17 / -6 )

From his motorcade, Trump posted on social media: "Heading to Lower Manhattan, the Courthouse. Seems so SURREAL - WOW, they are going to ARREST ME. Can't believe this is happening in America."

What a stupid statement. People get arrested for their crimes every day in America.

16 ( +22 / -6 )

“WOW, they are going to ARREST ME”

Yeah because don’t forget, they’re not coming after him they’re coming after you.

I mean whoever heard of people getting arrested for crimes, in the US. That kind of thing only happens in third world countries.

Just you wait, it’s a slippery slope. From now the number of people arrested for illegally paying hush money to a porn star is going to skyrocket.

What he means is “wow they are going to arrest someone like me”

The businessman-turned-politician has been a familiar figure for decades in New York, the city where he was raised, built his real estate business and became a celebrity.

Trump should have been jailed in the 80's with his billionaire real estate tax-avoiding compatriot Leona Helmsley.

It would have spared a lot of what has happened to American since.

Maybe in another timeline....

Apparently, there were also payments to a Trump Tower doorman who claimed to have a story about a child he alleged the former president had out of wedlock.

Gets the popcorn out...

34 counts. If even 1 of those is true, he's unfit for office.

Don't confuse federal charges and state charges. They are completely different courts, completely different prosecuting attorneys.

Attorneys and judges should be apolitical. I remember voting for judges without any political party denoted. In one state, they didn't list political parties on any election ballots until the last 10 yrs. It was a much nicer system and we voted based on the person, not their party. US political parties are a huge problem that needs to be solved. It is almost on the level as the CCP is a problem for Asia.

Yepthis is politically motivated, but the question is: should we care?…; it’s not about breaking laws (perhaps (somelaws were broken(?) but the reasonwhy he’s being indicted is because he’s Donald Trump), it’s about bringing Trump down because he’s still a threat not only to the Democrats but also to the country…; back in two thousand and sixteen, I sympathized with the people voting for him because he was anti-establishment but after all the lies, the way he handled the pandemic and January 6, how can you still support the guy…(?)…;

he’s not the change that the American people need…;

now if only we could see his mugshot (it wasn’t taken, I know, but)…; that image has the potential to be the most trafficked image of all time, the most famous mugshot in American history and one of the most defining images of the 21st century…; Democrats, Republicans and even people with no interest in politics will love that mugshot… but

Under New York State law, the authorities must take the fingerprints of anyone charged with a felony. But law enforcement officials have discretion over whether they take a mug shot.

Mug shots are meant to help the authorities identify a defendant and find them if they flee; in such instances, the photographs are distributed to law enforcement agencies and sometimes the media in order to help apprehend the fugitive.

But Mr. Trump is not considered a significant flight risk, and as he is a former president who hosted a widely popular reality television show after spending decades as a fixture of the tabloids, photographs of him are more than readily available.

Several officials also said there was concern that a mug shot of Mr. Trump, which would be provided to the New York Police Department and other agencies, would be leaked. That would be a violation of law and could prompt an investigation and a political firestorm.

Taking Mr. Trump’s mug shot would also be complicated for logistical reasons, one law enforcement official said. He is expected to surrender to the authorities at the Manhattan Criminal Courts Building. The official said that facility does not have the equipment necessary to take Mr. Trump’s mug shot.

That means doing so would require that he be taken to either the Police Department’s Central Booking facility or to the Manhattan Detention Complex, which would entail more movements for the former president. Mr. Trump’s surrender and arraignment has already been highly choreographed by the Secret Service, the Police Department and court security to reduce the possible security risk to Mr. Trump.

Posters that cheered on Trump's Suprme Court candidates because they were fellow extreme rightists, and call this effort political should post their whines on 4Chan or Gab.

A misdemeanor hush money payment turned into a felony finance charged split 34 ways. It’s not only laughable, but beyond ridiculous and desperate.

lol Not split. 34 counts. 34 different ways Trump committed felonies. It wasn't just hush money payments.

Trump is being indicted on criminal conspiracy charges. Criminal conspiracies like falsifying business records (criminal conspiracies = felonies and misdemeanors) are considered crimes in the state of New York. No one is above the law!

A DA of any state cannot and should not normalize criminal activity.

Yup, Harry Reid said the same thing when he nuked the nuclear option in the Senate blocking the Republicans and confirming any Senate they wanted without their votes and that later helped Mitch and Trump to appoint over 300 conservative judges. So here we go again. The left never learn.

I don’t think many people change their minds with a sudden epiphany after reading the same “Yeah, but what about Z?” comments over and over.

8 ( +10 / -2 )

Trump isn't being charged with a felony, he's being charged with Falsification of Business Records, 34 times, which is a misdemeanor in New York. Nobody in New York goes to jail for that as a first time offender. They're trying to change it to a felony in this one specific case. That's not how an adversarial trial system works. You can't just sort of invent a new criminal charge that's tailored to achieving a conviction against one specific person in one specific case. But that’s what they have done, what comes around goes around now the Republicans don’t have to hold back in the future.

No. Felonies, Bass, felonies.

Misdemeanors…I mean, uh, oh..felonies. ROFL

Would you like him to?

Biden?

It'd make it a whole lot harder for Trump to campaign off this.

No mugshot yet, but we can read something about how he feels from his body language. The few shots of him so far made available to the public show a serious to sullen mien while the photo heading the article seems to show the mask of a man-child who knows he's been caught with his hands in the cookie jar (Gotcha!), but still intends to brazen it out, confident in thrall to his self-delusion. The trial is unlikely to begin before December, which gives Trump's lawyers time to try and have the case against their client dismissed, or at least to have him not tried as an adult (lol).

You seem to have difficulty discerning the difference between the legislative branch of the federal government and a local prosecutor in NYC. You also seem confused by the difference between a singular person (Bragg) and an entire class of bogeymen ("the left" and "Dems").

If you think applauding a criminal because it raises your team's popularity is the way to go, you've got a pretty nihilistic vision for America.

Did anyone actually READ the counts? Essentially, it lists 34 entries they claim violate Title 175.10, which states....§ 175.10 Falsifying business records in the first degreeA person is guilty of falsifying business records in the first degree when he commits the crime of falsifying business records in the second degree, and when his intent to defraud includes an intent to commit another crime or to aid or conceal the commission thereof.There has to be intent to defraud 'someone'. There has to be 'intent' to either commit another crime or aid in the concealment of a crime. As far as I can see, no one was defrauded. It has already been stated that paying someone to not disclose an alleged affair is not a crime. And since all these are allegedly tied to the hush money payoffs, there really seems to be no 'there' there.The DOJ already said none of that could be proved so they declined to charge Trump. The Federal Election Commission already said none of that could be proven, so they declined to charge Trump.

Does anyone really think that any of this would be happening to Trump if he had retired to private life after leaving office two years ago?

Of course it wouldn't.

Anyone who doesn't see that this is politically motivated simply doesn't want to see it. But it's undeniable.

Meanwhile, a Republican guy who posted a sarcastic tweet about Hillary Clinton supporters texting in their votes is facing years in prison for "election interference" -- even though a Democrat woman posted a virtually identical tweet aimed at Trump supporters.

She, of course, is not facing any charges at all.

Equal justice no longer exists in America -- thanks to Democrat efforts to turn America into a one-party banana republic.

Arresting Trump is good for the USA, democracy and stifling the lying movement of conservative foolishness.

Trump and his followers do not critical think. The lies and limited information to create a narrative they believe is straight out of 1984, the novel, by Orwell.

Doublethink. Newspeak. 2+2=5. Thought police. It's all exactly what is going on with the lies that lead to a criminal being arrested, Trump. Of course, his cult is not interested in reading this book, they just assume burn it.

At least, though, he is not getting away with his dictatorial and gaslighting ways. He'll never be a false president, again. And his followers will either break away and wreak more havoc on the democracy of the USA, or just continue to whine and cry about everything they lie about.

They're not making America great. On the contrary, they are guiding insurrections and promoting ideals of being traitor toward the constitution, and the United States of America, as does their leader.

The award came hours after Trump pleaded not guilty after being charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the first degree”

Michael Cohen with his "Mea Culpa" has made himself the public face of bringing justice to Trump's doorstep. Since serving his time for crimes committed at Trump's behest, he has consistently been the prime witness and thrust behind uncovering the litany of felonies his former boss has now been charged with, but when Cohen was put on trial, the "Elephant in the room" was AMI's chief exec and publisher of the "National Inquirer", David Pecker, a shadowy key player in the cover-up who was given "immunity" and became with "Individual-1" an egregious omission. It was inevitable that one day he would have to come out of the woodwork and we will see, when the trial is held, that a guilty verdict will be even more because of what Pecker did rather than Cohen.

34 “felonies”. Dems really do go overboard on everything. He can go to jail for like 136 years! Is that enough for all of you?

No, after tallying up all the other crimes in the jurisdictions of Georgia and Washington waiting in the pipeline, we can expect Trump's jailtime to be grossed up, like his business records, to a whopping 500+ years. On top of all the actionable felonies nobody is talking about his violation of the oath of office which should earn the traitor a charge of treason (and we all know what punishment Trump would advocate for that crime).

I don't sense any fear or anxiety on Trump's face in the photo of him in the courtroom. Watching the livestream of him giving remarks, he doesn't seem any different than normal.

It must be so anticlimactic and disappointing to be a Democrat. Think about it. Joe Biden is not popular, his reputation was immediately railroaded by the Afghanistan withdrawal (an action I agreed with, but was handled disastrously), he failed to ram through the vaccine mandate, people are getting fatigued by Ukraine aid, crime rates are rising, race relations are horrible, the transgender movement has gone off the rails, and now there is massive inflation and failing banks on his watch. By 2024 America will be in a recession, and that all but guarantees Trump a new term in office.

I definitely agree with Liberals that Trump is usually an erratic clown, but at least he has three things under his belt: the creation of the US Space Force, the killing of the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr-Al Baghdadi, and a shift in policy on North Korea that was a step in the right direction after decades of failed policy from previous presidents. His administration was objectively superior to Biden's. The only reason he lost the election was because lots of Americans were dying from Covid-19 (or so we thought), but more Americans died from Covid under Biden anyway (by the numbers), and Covid no longer matters in the grand scheme of American politics.

Nothing is going to stop the decline of the US as a world power, and I think the divisions in American society may cause a breakup similar to that of the USSR. Trump cannot stop it, that is for sure, but America's radical Left has accelerated it more so than any other factor. When everybody views each other with suspicion because their neighbor might be a member of the other side and could potentially sabotage them, you no longer have a functioning country.

Unbelievable.

One of the alleged "crimes" that Trump committed -- in DA Alvin Bragg's own words -- is "suppressing negative information to help his chances of winning the 2016 election."

What???

Every politician tries to suppress negative information about himself/herself in order to try to win an election.

Since when is this a crime?

Well, apparently, in the new Democrat Banana Republic of America, it's a crime now.

But only, of course, when Republicans do it.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said at a news conference after the arraignment that the indictment did not specify what laws Trump broke because “the law does not so require.”

this sounds stupid.

he says he doesnt have to say what other additional crime magically turns the misdemeanors into felonies. \

Even CNN isnt buying that one.

CNN Senior Legal Analyst Elie Honig said that prosecutors will have to make their case that Trump committed felonies and not misdemeanors by showing that the falsified records were used to conceal another crime, which was not identified in the indictment.

“One of the complicated legal questions here is in order to bump that up from a misdemeanor to a felony you have to show that those records were falsified to commit some other crime, some second crime,” Honig said. “You heard the defense lawyers, I think, rightly, complaining about that.”

-12 ( +5 / -17 )

One of the alleged "crimes" that Trump committed -- in DA Alvin Bragg's own words -- is "suppressing negative information to help his chances of winning the 2016 election."

As former President Donald Trump arrived at Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday, a police officer let the door close on the 45th president as he made his way to the courtroom.

There were two police officers who walked through double doors inside the courthouse ahead of Trump, with the first officer holding the door for the second officer behind him, then the second officer letting the door go for Trump to push the door open for himself. Doors are held open for current and former presidents.

Okay. 

To show good faith, please post links to sources showing independents swinging towards Trump and that the majority aren't in favour of this indictment.

I can't find them.

Because this is a matter for US voters.

I can't find them. 

Keep looking, I found it, so can you.

--I can't find them. 

Keep looking, I found it, so can you.

I can't find any polls concluding that swing voters are moving toward Trump and that a majority of Americans think the indictments are wrong.

Either such polls are the sole domain of right wing dark web sites, or you are just making stuff up. I suspect the latter.

As another poster said, please don't waste people's time with your bad faith arguments.

I see, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.

You frequently post that. Would you be happier on a forum exclusively for Americans?
