Despite the fact that the insurrectionary in chief Donald Trump was restored to Twitter in November by Elon Musk (Trump has not yet resumed his posts and his the last tweet was on January 8, 2021) and on Friday it was returned to Facebook and Youtube with innocuous greetings, he used his own social truth yesterday morning to say that “THE LEADING FAR & AWAY REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL BE ARRESTED TUESDAY NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE BACK OUR NATION!”
We hope so and hope that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his grand jury have built a strong felony case against Trump for paying porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money in October 2016 in a conspiracy. of concealment of his appointment. The facts are well established and former Trump stockbroker Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty and served federal time for his role in the scheme.
Also in the mix may be the $150,000 that former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal received in August 2016 from a Trump friend at the National Enquirer to keep quiet about her own affair with Trump.
If Trump is right, he will have to surrender for his arrest, using the entrance at 100 Center St. or 1 Hogan Place. With his Secret Service detail present, he will be handcuffed, booked, fingerprinted and a mugshot taken. He will be humiliated and you may have to hand over his passport. Even though he is very dangerous and may have summoned the mob calling for protests to “TAKE BACK OUR NATION!”, he will likely not be jailed at Rikers, but will be allowed to go free until his trial.
And that is where Trump must fight this case, in the courtroom, not on the streets. We will weigh the charges after the grand jury delivers the indictment and a judge orders the indictment.
Trump will claim that everything is politics and that politics can help him. In 2020, Trump got 85,185 votes in Manhattan, 12% of the total, so it is very likely that there will be at least one Trump voter on the jury. And it only takes one to acquit.
