Trumps legal troubles have reached a new high. Once again, Trump does something no former president has ever done. He’s been indicted for a crime. Considering how which collar criminals are treated in this country that’s a big deal. The rich and powerful have a totally different justice system from the rest of us.
For him to be indited is big news. Of course, we won’t know the details until later. I am curious to see how his surrender to authorities will look like.
Here’s the thing: this isn’t the most serious crimes he’s been charged with. There are other cases working their way through the legal system. What this NY case does is show that he can be indicted. Once the dam breaks the flood starts.
It’s no secret I’ve never been a fan of the man. That’s my right as an American. I’m prepared for this. There’s a bottle of good quality single malt scotch sitting my liquor cabinet that I’ve been saving.
In an earlier blog I mentioned that I didn’t expect his supporters to cause much of a fuss. There may be a lot of gnashing of teeth on social media, but I’m not on those platforms. As for coming out in the streets -not so much. That doesn’t mean there won’t be a few idiots, but there are always idiots. Some even think they’ll be pardoned by Trump for any legal problems. However, when he had the legal authority to pardon the January 6 bozos he never lifted a finger. How they expect an indicted criminal to pardon them is beyond me.
