Yuck,  and I live in NY. I agree and think this will motivate Trump's base to get out and vote for him in 2024, and I intend to do the same. Always a democrat, but 4 years of Trump lies and the democrat's illegal authoritarian shenanigans made me vote for him in 2020. I didn't agree with a number of his policies, but that also goes for the democrats I helped vote into office. After their multiple autocratic attacks during his presidency which tried to oust him from office, as well as their not knowing the difference between an insurrection and a riot followed by an unconstitutional  Jan 6 comm left me with nothing but distain for the lot of them. Taibbi's encounter with them on the twitter files reflected just how disgusting they have become. I want to wait and see what that self serving neck less ass has before I comment on the legality of what he is doing, but I know if Trump was just another politician, one that didn't want to get along with Russia, and  implemented another war during his presidency, and had adopted a hegemonic mindset for America he wouldn't be in all this trouble. I always thought that motivated their hatred for him and of course that doesn't mean only  from politicians, but their keepers as well.

Well, I loathe Trump and didn't vote for him ever, but this is gonna be 2016 Groundhog Day as I can see myself up real late on the next Election Day, sick again with relief that the wretched Democrat lost.

Spot on, man.

This isn't good. It grieves me to no end to see how history repeats itself. What do these people think will happen? My God, the way they act, you would think they wanted to start a civil war. Maybe they do. Above all else, it's just sad. We don't have to be like this. We really could be a shining city on the hill for all the world to look up to, but instead we're getting mired down in petty politics and idiotic domestic/foreign policy ideas that have ruined us on the global stage and economically.

God help us.

Superbly written Brad Neaton.

Cry the beloved country. From the outside looking in, this the leader of the free world going nuts. If the rule of law in the US is politicised, god help us all.

This is the post I've been writing; I'll cross-post and add a small amount. If this stands, we've lost the republic.

Another excellent article, Mr. Neaton.

"… the credibility of two of the star witnesses—fraudster Michael Cohen and a porn star" who waited ten years until Trump ran for president to extort money from him.

"People will rally to Trump; they will vote for the man because they identify with his persecution."

His persecution is why I voted for him in 2016 and my loyalty to him got even stronger as a result of the Russiagate persecution. I admire his character, in particular his extraordinary resilience and his perseverence in the face of irrational hostility. His enemies are mine, and they must be defeated!

I think the point about Bragg is that he is among the crop of attorneys that follow the Lenin castroist (funny how its finally OK not to like the Russians after all these years) idea that the the criminals are the victim of the system and the real criminals are the white collar types. This is not entirely wrong as the violent felons are the product of their society and the behavior of Wall street has often been down right criminal. But that only goes too far and you are not allowed to ask about the policies that have produced these hellscapes. On the other side the Blackstones and GS have purchased indulgences through the adoption of ESG and DEI. This leaves the Trumps of the world as the only worthy target for their philosophy as he is the only threat to them.

Remember in 2018 the Chief Justice of the United States reminded us of our judiciary's independence:

"[T]he United States does not have 'Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.'"

We might give Justice Roberts the benefit of the doubt and say his comments were restricted to federal judges, but how many people think Lady Justice will be wearing a blindfold in this case?

And the prior Manhattan D.A.'s interview is telling for its unstated central message, namely that "blind justice" is not appropriate when a political opponent has it coming. Their moto with clear conscience is "by any means necessary." https://www.npr.org/2023/04/02/1167665437/former-manhattan-da-cyrus-vance-calls-trump-indictment-extraordinary-event

Banana Republic indeed.

Seeing now everything about US “Empire of Lies”, including thanks to courageous Elon Musk and Twitter Files, it is beyond doubt that 2020 and 2022 elections were stolen..

US State press is paid to lie and must lick asses of their advertisers/controllers -- US arms industry and US fascist bipartisan War party.

Lavrentiy Beria would give Bragg a useful idiot attaboy.

"...it will polarize the country even more."

I for one hope so. Centrism is our enemy IMO. Leftists never really compromise, but the RINOs do nothing else. Hence, the Overton Window moves relentlessly Left. We need to find a way to stop losing ground and start winning back our freedoms.

This is addressed to the owner of the site. I cannot, and will not be on a site where respondents are so lacking in any sense of humanity. Wow.

More than one politician’s career has been ruined by sex scandal, Clinton was impeached for it (and let’s not get into the witch-hunt Whitewater case that dug the sexual misconduct up in the first place), and Trump seems to have paid someone off with over 100k to avoid it becoming known prior to the election, or maybe just to keep his wife, with newborn at her side, from finding out. All this fuss about Trump being persecuted is baloney. If ever a politician asked for legal by his own behavior, it is Trump. Let us count the ways. So let’s see what the 30 some charges are before we shed any more tears for this character. If this case doesn’t convict him, so be it. The Georgia will, or the Mara Lago debacle... This is hardly banana Republic stuff. The riot on Jan 6 sure was. I wish he’d get out of the way and let the GOP run a serious politician that runs on serious issues...not his/her own victimhood.
