Donald Trump vows to escalate attacks against Alvin Bragg - sources

Donald Trump has told advisers and associates in recent days that he is prepared to escalate attacks against the Manhattan prosecutor who resurrected the criminal prosecution into his hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016 now that a grand jury has indicted him.

The former president has vowed to people close to him that he wants to go on the offensive and – in a private moment over the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida that demonstrates his gathering resolve – remarked using more colorful language that it was time to politically “rough ’em up”.

Trump had already signaled that he would go after the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, weeks before the grand jury handed up an indictment against him on Thursday, saying in pugilistic posts on Truth Social that the prosecution was purely political and accusing Bragg of being a psychopath.

is a great way to get a gag order/contempt of court and add incitement charges to your indictment.

With a grim fixation on having a mug shot taken, Trump has asked whether his team could print it on T-shirts that could serve as a rallying motif for his supporters – an idea that his advisers have been particularly enthusiastic about.

would be arrested, immediately charged and locked up until the trial started.

Are they planning to hold the orange headed buffoon in jail or issue a gag order so that every threat becomes a felony that he must pay for with time in prison?

Why, even in the face of indictment, does he not have to go through what the rest of us have to live by?

Now this has to be handled very carefully. How hard will it be to get him back to court IF the judge requests it? I fear the ONLY way to stop this CULT (terrorist) leader, is to LOCK him up! Seriously that IS the only way!

target his perceived enemies, threaten them by name, demean their spouses, send his henchmen to their homes to harass their families, call a black man racist, invoke George Soros, the right’s Jewish bogey man, demand they back off or suffer the wrath of “patriotic Americans”, and last but certainly not least, send his MAGA congress jackasses out to defend him, take umbrage at the suggestion “the most innocent man on earth” is a victim, unfairly targeted by “Democrat” prosecutors and judges who “don’t like Trump”…

He knows his people will defend him no matter how atrocious. We all know very well that there is no bottom for him or his Zombies. They will back him and forgive him of ANYTHING!

EXCEPT APPEARING POWERLESS.

Which he absolutely is in this matter.

Being guilty is no big deal to MAGAts. But being powerless is the one crime they will not tolerate.

So, we get to read this piece, and his big Tuesday night victimpolooza. Though neither will happen in reality. It show's he is "fighting back" see. And not at all powerless.
