History-Making Moment: President Trump Indicted By Manhattan D.A.

Many of you, like myself, are probably fuming right now at the news that President Donald Trump has been indicted for a crime that was committed by someone else. When you really look at a corporation the size of one that Donald Trump has run for decades, you have to understand that even at the executive level there are tons of people that operate independently of Donald Trump.

I mean, let’s be completely and totally real here. A lot of what is said to have happened occurred without Donald Trump’s express knowledge and everyone on the liberal side of the coin is trying to pin this whole horrible thing to Trump and to be perfectly honest it’s horrifically unfair.

I have always hated it when people are accused of things that aren’t true. I recall a few times as a kid taking a punishment that I knew I shouldn’t have taken. I hate to see it happening to good people. That being said, here’s where we’re at…

From Fox News:

Former President Donald Trump has been indicted, possibly as part of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s years-long investigation into hush-money payments.

The charges stem from the $130,000 hush money payment then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York opted out of charging Trump related to the Stormy Daniels payment in 2019, even as Cohen implicated him as part of his plea deal. The Federal Election Commission also tossed its investigation into the matter in 2021.

Bragg, when he took over as district attorney in January 2022, stopped pursuing charges against Trump and suspended the investigation “indefinitely,” according to one of the top prosecutors who resigned from the office in protest.

Here’s the thing about all of this though, the case is about as phony as a football bat. I mean really, ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena in 2015, they have been trying to get him on something. They have been trying to get him on some nonsense charge. Hell, if Trump cured cancer, they’d want to charge him with putting oncologists out of jobs.

You’ve got a lot of people with a lot of really creative stories, stuff that might even make for a good movie if you were writing one. However, Democrats know that they struck out when it came to effectiveness with Joe Biden, and they are using this last-gasp chance to block Trump from being able to come back in 2024. But Trump will walk away unscathed from this. For the good of the nation he will.
