(BrightPress.org) – Former President Donald Trump was “invited” to give testimony to a New York grand jury which was invoked to analyze some of Trump’s finances. The so-called “hush money” was given out to women – including adult film star Stormy Daniels – shortly before Trump’s 2016 Presidential bid, implying that they were paid to keep quiet.
Trump’s lawyer Joseph Tacopina dismissed the invitation as “much ado about nothing,” and suggested there was “no legal basis” for charges against Trump. He continued to suggest that this was just the latest example of the legal system being weaponized for political retribution and called it unfair.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office declined to comment, but could perhaps millions of dollars in campaign contributions from the infamous billionaire George Soros explain this fishing expedition?
An indictment would hamper Trump’s 2024 bid, but would these charges be legitimate or just another salvo the establishment left fires off in his general direction, hoping it hits?
In typical Trump fashion, the 45th President took to social media to dispute the allegations. Calling Alvin Bragg “racist” and “George Soros-backed,” he suggested the Manhattan D.A. was using testimony from a convicted felon and disbarred lawyer who bombarded Trump with pardon requests and didn’t get one.
He called the investigation a “political witch-hunt” obviously targeting the Republican candidate in advance of the election. He reminded folks that the Stormy Daniels issue has been examined by multiple prosecutors in multiple jurisdictions, none of which were able to bring a case to trial.
He also lambasted Bragg for allowing the crime in the city to proliferate with his no-bail approach and lack of bringing charges against violent offenders. Trump also reminded folks that even if there was some impropriety, the statute of limitations has expired.
Trump also faces the threat of an indictment in Georgia, where their Democratic operatives and George Soros-funded D.A. have been ‘investigating’ a phone call made by Trump during the post-election counting period asking if Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger could “find” the needed 11,000-or-so votes to win the state.
