Trump lashes out after grand jury seated for New York criminal probe

Source: the hill


By Tal Axelrod - 05/25/21 09:25 PM EDT


Former President Trump lashed out Tuesday after it was reported that a grand jury was seated to weigh any criminal evidence against him and his company and decide if indictments should be issued.

“This is a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history,” Trump lamented, referencing other investigations into Russian election meddling.

“No other President in history has had to put up with what I have had to, and on top of all that, I have done a great job for our Country, whether it’s taxes, regulations, our Military, Veterans, Space Force, our Borders, speedy creation of a great vaccine (said to be a miracle!), and protecting the Second Amendment,” he added. “This is purely political, and an affront to the almost 75 million voters who supported me in the Presidential Election, and it’s being driven by highly partisan Democrat prosecutors.”

The broadside comes as Trump, the Trump Organization and its executives are under investigation for an array of potential financial misconduct.

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. is coordinating his probe with New York Attorney General Letitia James in their overlapping inquiries. James’s office said last week that it is now investigating the Trump Organization in a "criminal capacity” as well as a "civil capacity." ........

26. "I didn't do nothin' and besides HE did it"

“Just because our test papers match perfect like don’t mean I’m the cheater. He’s the cheater.”

“I been framed, I tell ya, framed. The bastids had it out for me, see? They hated me on account I’m too smart for ‘em, see?”

And, always (for some bizarre reason):”Space Force!”

Fat Man becomes his own cliche as he reverts more and more to his obnoxious pre-adolescent self

8. The puppet projects lie after lie while claiming he's the victim to his targeted rubes,

Then he'll CONvince his followers they're being victimized too , and then he'll again incite his ignorant rubes to be violent for him, again. This is what a career liar and criminal con artist does. He'll project they're out to get him because he was such a great president, which again is completely opposite of the truth, but look at the truth. He's the most corrupt person we've ever had in our government, and biggest liar, and thinks he's above the rule of law, and it doesn't apply to him.
He'll be conning his rubes to believe they need to send him money, lots of money, especially now that his donors are running away from him, and republicans. He'll use the money for himself again, not for his legal fees, or elections. He's going to use it as a money generator, again.
He is a crook. Trump org is a criminal enterprise, and he will be getting exposed with many others. There will be numerous indictments coming, and he'll try to suggest his rubes will commit violence as a threat if he's indicted. Just like he used them for violence on Jan. 6th because he lost the election. They got the goods on him and others or they wouldn't have called for a grand jury, especially for him. Now he'll have others looking into ways to stall and obstruct , and corrupt this investigation like he's done before, and he'll project false accusations, threaten, and blackmail others for support projecting his lies.

and realize they've tied themselves to a felon?

He's going down. It won't be immediately, but before the end of the year I predict he'll be indicted on multiple felony charges, just in time for the mid terms.

What a gift to the Dems.

The lot of them - especially Whiner Don - need to go the way of Ken Lay and Bernie Madoff. He should have enjoyed a stay at the crowbar hotel after the charity scam. I really hope we're not in for a big let down. They can't let him walk again.

18. Trump: America is full of ingrates

Nobody gives Trump credit for anything.
I do.
Here's a few...
--Trump has full credit for the increased division in our two party system.
--Trump has full credit as the sole cause of the Jan 6th Insurrection at the US Capitol
--Trump has full credit for the national debt he alone created. Every President gets thier own debt numbers.
--Trump has full credit for blaming Americans for his self-inflicted 'wounds'. Projection & denial are for small minds.

I don't blame anyone else, even the Russians, for Trump's problems.

The NY Grand Jury being conveined is still, up in the air, as to who to blame. We will know once actual indictments are issued.

I'll let Trump whine, and cry and whimper all day long, and it won't affect my own opinion of him or his behaviors.

If you and your dealings had gone through as much scrutiny as the Clintons did concerning Whitewater, you’d already be facing serious prison time.

putting such a soulless, corrupt, ignorant, inept criminal in such a position of responsibility. Responsibility being the one thing he has most spent his life avoiding.

29. Putin and other oligarchs

used MF45 to launder money for them. Now I'm hearing that's what his Scottish golf courses are used for, to launder money.

It's pretty clear to me, that's what he did at his casinos. Deutsche bank forgives a huge MF45 loan because Putin's bank, VTB bank covers the loan.

30. He should stick a sock in it

No other president as been as bent or inflicted greater harm on the people. If he had been elected to four more years we wouldn't be able to breathe, see through the smog, drink clean water or visit a National Park not sold out for oil drilling or strip mining. It's been nice and quiet without his constant bitching, moaning and whining. He ought to donate money to a charity for real.

35. Trump has been able to use his money to escape consequences for his crimes his whole life.

And if he had not run for president, he most likely would have continued in that vein and never paid for any crimes. Now we can only hope that the grand jury hands down indictments for Trump, Jr. Eric, and Ivanka. All have been a part of tax fraud, insurance schemes and fake property valuations, and money laundering.

But will a jury ever find a former US president guilty of crimes that would result in jail? That would be truly unprecedented, but well deserved. Keeping my fingers crossed.
