Yet Another Bogus Trump Trial Begins Today, Helping Trump


by David Strom

Now it’s Alvin Bragg’s turn to harass Donald Trump with ridiculous lawfare intended to boost Bragg’s political prospects and harm Donald Trump’s.

Bragg may succeed in accomplishing the first goal, but he most certainly will not in the second.

Call this the Stormy Daniels trial. Or the porn payoff prosecution. Call it whatever you want; it is a total farce. Bragg’s legal theory is that Donald Trump paid off Stormy Daniels as a campaign expense, violating federal campaign law.

It’s an insane legal theory and one rejected by both Bragg’s predecessor and even Merrick Garland’s Justice Department.

But as with all things Democrat and Trump, logic is irrelevant. The law is irrelevant. Fairness is irrelevant. Even basic facts are irrelevant.

Orange man bad.

Ironically, this prosecution may be annoying and expensive for Trump–bankrupting Trump is clearly one of the goals the Democrats have this election season–it will electoral gold, as is always the case with Democrat attacks on Trump.

Trump’s video, released today, hits all the right notes. It strokes the political erogenous zones of his supporters, keeping them glued firmly to his side and preparing them to seek justified electoral vengeance this fall. And, as importantly, it reminds independent voters that the Democrats have crossed the Rubicon, threatening basic American norms in the service of maintaining political power.

No sane person believes that Trump is being treated fairly in his legal battles. The convenience of multiple major legal battles taking place simultaneously with the campaign is laughably coincidental. All those pious claims that Democrats are “saving democracy” look ridiculous as the Democrats turn our country into a Banana Republic.

Liberals right now are ecstatic. They are doing what they have been doing for nearly a decade: kicking at Donald Trump, righteously shouting that they are the defenders of all that is good and true and beautiful.

To the rest of America, they look like crazy cult members. Plenty of Democrats know that this is wrong, but they can’t help themselves.

You can see in the polls that Americans aren’t persuaded in the least; the more the Democrats attack, the stronger Trump gets. Not because it makes people like Trump–you either do or you don’t–but because it makes the Democrats look like what they are: power-mad.

The only reason Trump isn’t higher in the polls is that many people wish a pox on both their houses. They don’t like Trump, but they realize that Democrats have gone too far. They feel stuck in the middle.

Many, though, will hit a breaking point, and I think they will break toward Trump. The level of ridiculousness is so great that the sheer scale and idiocy of the prosecutions will make people dismiss all the earlier accusations–they may not change their minds, but they will discount the importance.

Just as the pandemic was a fight Trump was ill-equipped to wage, legal battles are fights that Trump is made to win. The only one of these prosecutions that will likely survive appeals would be the classified documents case, and if Trump wins that will disappear into the wind.

An expired misdemeanor bootstrapped to a felony.

Such a weak persecution. Complete embarrassment to American justice system.

Soros Bragg and their ilk we don’t need either of them nor do we want their Lapdog Media either

Most, if not all, of the people we see cheering this have no idea what the charges are… or aren’t. All they know is that Trump is charged with something, so he is guilty. Now, the trial is beginning, so he is just as good as in jail. None of they care one bit about the law, justice, the truth, the Constitution or due process. In fact, when it benefits an innocent person they hate, they hate all those protections and want them permanently gone… except when THEY need them.

This bogus trial is another coup d’é·tat effort by the left to ultimately prevent President Trump from returning to office and thereby extending the current rogue anti-American regime’s control over the People of America. Those involved in all of these meaningless show trials are indeed committing a conspiracy to engage in election interference.
