Happy Monday, my friends. Welcome to the Liz Wheeler Show. Well, here we go again. Trump is under political attack once again by deep staters in the United States government. This time, the Manhattan District Attorney allegedly reportedly Trump claims that Alvin Bragg is going to indict him as soon as Tuesday of this week. Trump announced this on his social media platform, truth, social.
I wanna read to you exactly what he said. This is what Trump said. He said, our nation is now third world and dying. The American dream is dead. The radical Left anarchists have stolen our presidential election, and with it, the heart of our country, American patriots are being arrested and held in captivity like animals. While criminals and leftist thugs are allowed to roam the streets killing and burning with no retribution, millions are flooding through our open borders.
Many from prison and mental institutions, crime and inflation are destroying our very way of life. Now, illegal leaks from a corrupt and highly political Manhattan District Attorney’s office, which has allowed new records to be set in violent crime and whose leader is funded by George Soros, indicate that with no crime being able to be proven and based on an old and fully debunked by numerous other prosecutors, fairytale, the far and away leading Republican candidate and former president of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday of next week protest. Donald Trump said, take our nation back.
This is pretty big news. If the Manhattan District Attorney is truly preparing to indict President Trump, the former president of the United States on something as ply as the Stormy Daniel’s stuff, I mean there, there is no doubt in our, in my mind that this is a political witch hunt. This is, this is outrageous. The words to describe this, you could say it’s egregious.
This has third world vibes. It gives me a chill up my spine. But here’s the thing, my friends, first, the deep state targeted Trump with Russiagate. That didn’t work. They spent years on it. They destroyed his political capital when he was president, but they didn’t ultimately destroy him. So then they hit him with Ukraine. Impeachment hopes it wasn’t real. It was, it was a disgruntled staffer who had access to the readouts of President Trump’s classified phone calls with leaders of other nation.
And it was a political disagreement that was packaged as being something illegal. And it wasn’t. A lot of Democrats fell for it. Some Republicans fell for it, but ultimately it didn’t destroy Trump. So then we had the classified documents scandal, the Mar-a-Lago raided by the FBI. That turned out to be a disagreement between Trump and the National Archives on who exactly owned the letter that Kim Jong own wrote to Trump when he was president.
Does that belong to the federal government or does that belong to Trump? Personally, it was bad, it was egregious, it was political targeting for sure, but it failed to destroy Trump. So now, here we go again. Round four, this is the next level political targeting. The Manhattan District Attorney is trying to indict Trump on a felony, which is laughable on two levels. It’s laughable because the Manhattan District attorney hates felonies.
He doesn’t prosecute felonies. He actually downgrades over half of felony offenses to misdemeanors before he prosecutes them in New York City. And what Trump did was absolutely 100% unequivocally not a felony. You might notice that some, some people commenting on, on this news are getting really agitated, like Trump did not commit a felony. I don’t even feel that way because Trump so obviously didn’t commit a felony. It barely needs to be discussed.
We will debunk exactly why it’s not a felony and why the charge is bogus. But that’s not even the point of what I wanna talk about today. What I wanna talk about today is why the Left is doing this. What the Left is hoping from us as a reaction and what they have planned, what they’re going to do to us if we react in the way they want us to react. That is the most important part of this show. So let’s get to it.
So if President Trump is indicted, like he claims that he will be, and all signs seem to be pointing in that direction, I know that some people are saying, oh, Trump made that claim and now he’s walking it back. I don’t think he’s walking it back. It doesn’t seem like he’s walking it back. I know he got a little bit more specific about what he meant or where he’d gotten that information, but it doesn’t seem like he’s walking back that claim people, some people, both politicians and pundits and Trump haters or Trump lovers don’t don’t wanna take him at face value or don’t wanna listen to him.
They all wanna try to make everything political. It doesn’t seem like he’s walking back. He said his attorney was not notified, or his attorney says that Trump was not notified, which typically in a quote unquote professional crime, a white-collar crime an attorney for a defendant is notified before the arrest happens because it’s a, it’s assumed that that individual will not be on the lamb.
That they won’t be, they won’t be absconding from justice, that they won’t run away, that they’re not a flight risk. So that has not happened, that notification hasn’t happened. However, the reason that Trump tweeted about this is because NBC published an article with these illegal leaks that he was talking about assumedly someone at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, or perhaps someone in the know at the Department of Justice.
We’ll talk about that in a little while leaked to the mainstream media leaked to NBC News that the Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg was preparing. He was coordinating with different law enforcement. This includes the FBI. This includes the Secret Service, different law enforcement apparatuses, because he was preparing for the eventuality of a Trump indictment. How does that even work when you have President of the United States? You know, in order to avoid a showdown, say, for example, that President Trump is at in Mar-a-Lago, his residents in Florida, he’s protected by Secret Service.
So what happens when a law enforcement official from Manhattan, a law enforcement official from the FBI comes to Mar-a-Lago and tries to arrest him? Does the Secret Service allow that to happen? Or does the Secret Service protect Trump because that’s what their role is? Well, that’s what this Manhattan District Attorney’s office is doing with his inter-agency coordination, trying to coordinate the logistics of what would happen if President Trump were in fact indicted.
So this is what was leaked to NBC news. I don’t see how a lack of notification to Trump’s attorney means that Trump is walking this back. He’s just providing additional details. But it seems like the, it seems like all signs are pointing in that direction. If the Manhattan District Attorney is coordinating with different law enforcement apparatuses, why would he do that if he weren’t planning on indicting Trump?
He’s, of course, planning on indicting Trump. This was always the plan. It was just a matter of which allegation they thought that they could get away with, whether this was a federal charge of obstructing an official proceeding, which is what they tried to get him on after January 6th, whether it was inciting an insurrection, which they’re still trying to hit him with.
Both of those charges just wait for this special counsel that was appointed by Merick Garland to bring those charges. Those are still coming every time there’s been something. And you know, that’s what they were trying to do with the impeachment, with, with Ukraine and Zelensky before Zelensky became a hero of the Left. He was a villain of the Left. Ironic, this is what they were trying to do with Russiagate. They’ve always been trying to hit him with charges. They’ve always wanted to indict him.
They’ve just, they’ve just been out maneuvered by us, but barely. They’ve just, just missed every time that they’ve tried. So they’ve always wanted to indict Trump. This was never a norm that they were worried about violating. We’ve always had an extremely high bar for criminalizing a former president, even if the former president did something wrong, because we want to avoid the, even the perception, even the appearance of political targeting.
Because when a president or an administration targets a previous president or a previous administration, it looks like third World Banana Republic political targeting, where as soon as you’re an outgoing president, you’re jailed. It’s almost like a coup versus a peaceful transfer of power because it’s so important that we have a peaceful transfer of power. The bar for charging a former president, even if it’s a little nitty gritty crime, a wrongdoing, whatever it might be, has always been, it must be really serious and really egregious for that to happen.
Um, even Nixon was pardoned. So this is something that the Left doesn’t care about. They’re not interested in the norm here. They’re not interested in the importance of a peaceful transfer of power. They, they want to indict Trump. I’ve been saying this for a year now. They always planned to indict Trump after the November elections.
It was going to happen after the midterms. They were going to indict him because they cannot bear the fact that he will be the 2024 presidential nominee. And he is a very useful stooge for them since they hate him so much and they want him out of the way. Anyway, a very useful medium to get to us because truthfully, this is not only about Trump.
This is about every single one of us who rejects the neo-Marxist radical leftist ideology. Whether we voted for Trump in 2016, whether we voted him in 2020, whether we don’t like Biden, whether we didn’t like Hillary Clinton, whether we don’t like a o c, whether we rejected the Green New Deal in Medicare for all, whether we refuse to use transgender neo pronouns, whether we feel that something shady happened in November of 2020, whatever, whether we reject the covid lockdowns and vaccines and mask mandates, whatever it may be.
They hate us, they want to get us, and they’re using Trump to do it. If the Manhattan District attorney indicts former President Donald Trump, this will spawn another January 6th, and that is exactly what the Left intends for it to do.
Let’s talk first before we get to that part. Let’s talk first about what these charges are, because they’re going to be very misrepresented in this narrative when the Left is talking about how Trump abused campaign finance laws and how there was financial malfeasance and how his former attorney was already serving prison time for this. I wanna just clear this up so that we’re all in, we’re all very clear-minded and clear-eyed about what this actually is.
So Stormy Daniels, you remember her of this porn star who claimed that she had an affair with Trump. Maybe this is true. I have no idea. President Trump’s former personal life is obviously quite promiscuous. Not something that I endorsed, but clearly didn’t impact his ability to govern well, his first three years of his presidency. So President Trump paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 as part of an NDA agreement, a non-disclosure agreement.
These are very standard agreements in many, many industries. And a non-disclosure agreement is exactly what it sounds like. You sign a document saying, I will not talk about X, Y, Z. Oftentimes these, these happen when you’re exiting employment, especially employment in a political industry or a media industry in Hollywood, if you work for someone who’s in the public eye or famous, you sign a document saying, I will not give away any details. I will not talk about any interactions. I will simply be silent about everything that went on. And the price for that is you get paid for it, you get that. That’s essentially a service, a good in service that you’re rendering to this person. And so you get paid for it. So Stormy Daniels signed a document saying, I won’t talk about the affair that I claim that I had with Trump, and in exchange, President Trump paid her $130,000 for this agreement.
Now, the way that this was paid is the problem, because you might be thinking, well, NDAs are extremely common, which they are. NDAs are not problematic under the law, especially in New York state where this happened. They’re entirely legal. They happen all the time in new, in New York State, both for personal reasons like President Trump’s both and, and professional reasons. Like if you work at almost any kind of business, you sign an NDA on your way out the door or you sign an NDA when you begin your work there, they’re entirely legal, extremely common.
So what’s the problem here? Well, the problem is that when President Trump was running for president, he did not pay Stormy Daniels directly. He used his lawyer, Michael Cohen, the fixer guy, the shady guy who turned on Trump, who’s in prison. That guy Michael Cohen paid Stormy Daniels and President Trump paid Michael Cohen back in installments that were a little shady on the accounting side.
So what I mean by that is the payments were listed by the Trump organization, so the payments that went to Cohen, the Trump organization listed as a legal expense, and they said that they had Michael Cohen on a retainer, which is a fee that you pay someone to always be on hand when you need them. Apparently Cohen wasn’t on a retainer and the reimbursement weren’t related to an actual legal service rendered by Michael Cohen. It was just Trump’s way of paying Michael Cohen back for paying Stormy Daniels for this NDA.
So the misdemeanor, and this is, this is a keyword here. The misdemeanor that would be involved in what I just described would just be falsifying business records. It’s kind of a simple thing. It’s not good. I’m not endorsing it, you shouldn’t do that. But to indict a former president’s over $130,000 that he actually paid back just because he, he miscategorized it on a business record like there, there’s thin ice, there’s like a very thin case, and then like, and then like a thousand miles away from that a thousand miles thinner.
This is, I mean, it’s almost laughable. It’s literally almost laughable. It is so ridiculous, so absurd. This prosecutor isn’t intending to charge Trump with a misdemeanor of falsifying business records. He’s intending to charge Trump with a felony, and he wants to elevate this really stupid piddly misdemeanor to a felony because prosecutors are allowed to do that in this type of case, if they can prove that Trump’s intent, his intent to defraud, meaning if he falsified a business record, that his intent to defraud included an additional intent to conceal or commit another crime.
Okay. So it’s like stacking crimes. The secondary crime that these prosecutors are planning to hinge this charge on. They’re gonna elevate the misdemeanor to a felony hinging on the fact that they think that they can prove that Trump had the intent to conceal or commit another crime.
And this alleged other crime would be full or campaign finance violations that this hush money, if you will, that he paid two Stormy Daniels. That’s the, that’s sort of the negative way of talking about an NDA. It’s the same thing though benefited his presidential campaign and therefore, therefore was an abuse of campaign finance law. It was a violation of campaign finance law because it wasn’t reported as part of his, as part of his campaign.
Now this I find patently absurd for multiple reasons. The first of which is this is not something that has to do with his campaign only. This is something that is entirely both plausible and very likely that a man in Trump’s position who has behaved as Trump has, would do to protect what he’s married. Maybe he didn’t want his wife to know, maybe he didn’t want this woman blabbing to the press because Trump is a public figure and has a reputation to uphold.
This is something that is not something that Trump did just because he was running for president. This is something that is very, very likely that he would’ve done anyway that perhaps he had done in the past that he would done, that he would do in the future. I’m not sure how any prosecutor could think that they would be able to definitively prove that the only reason Trump did this was to benefit his presidential campaign.
There’s simply no way to prove that definitively, which is why this is so bananas absurd. The other reason that this is bananas absurd is actually a legal analysis of federal campaign finance law. This was something Steven Miller brought up on Twitter. Okay, so on its face, a piddly misdemeanor that probably wouldn’t even be charged. Like what kind of prosecutor would waste their time indicting someone for a misdemeanor like this?
Uh, it’s the stupidest thing, like personally shady, sure, don’t cheat on your wife. That should be obvious, but something that should require a federal prosecutor to be involved in. I can think of literally a million things that should take priority over this. The fact that we haven’t even prosecuted the rioters that destroyed our cities during the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020, the fact that Antifa actually declared an autonomous zone both in Atlanta, Georgia and Portland, Oregon, and they were barely charged for it.
The fact that we have illegal aliens and not just individual illegal aliens, but drug cartels and human traffickers just pouring across our border. The fact that we have gun crime in Chicago that rivals a third world country in war with the fatalities. And this is what, this is what the prosecutor chooses, chooses to, to focus on. Okay. Okay. So what might be the motivation here?
The motivation is obviously political. The charge is absurd on its face. And as Steven Miller points out on Twitter, I wanna bring this up cause I wanna read this exactly. Steven Miller says, I’m gonna quote this, the idea that a routine private settlement unconnected to settlement, unconnected to any campaign activity is a criminal offense because the settlement should have been paid with official campaign funds is the most preposterous, ludicrous, idiotic, indefensible fraudulent, quote unquote legal theory conceivable under this quote unquote theory, candidates must use federal campaign funds for private, personal, or corporate matters, an exact inversion of federal law. Indeed, the Department of Justice prosecutes those who use campaign funds for expressly non campaign purposes.
Of course, theory is all bogus pretest, no serious human believes that the Manhattan DA’s office believes any of this. They understand this is a purely partisan exercise in eventually prosecuting a political enemy precisely as it is done in repressive third world nations, despotic regimes and Marxist authoritarian states.
That’s interesting. That’s interesting. That point is a point that I have not heard many people make. A lot of people are, are, are in agreement that this is political witch haunt. I mean, really no one, no one disagrees with that, even if they pretend to, but it would’ve actually been a crime had Trump used campaign funds for this personal, for this personal expense.
And what the Left is trying to do is they’re trying to put him in a in a crime. If you do crime, if you don’t situation crime, if you do it this way, crime if you don’t situation, they just want it to be a lose loses for President Trump. But he would have been violating federal law had he, had he used campaign funds for something that was a personal or corporate expense. It wouldn’t have been a campaign justified expense.
This is what the Left wants. They want a perp walk. They want President Trump to be hauled out in handcuffs. They wanted that when it came to the classified document scandal, the FBI raided on Mar-a-Lago, the picture that they released of the classified folders that they had laid out on the carpet of the 45 office at Mar-a-Lago, who does that unless it’s a PR stunt, they want to perp walk. They want Trump in handcuffs, they want to humiliate him, they want to enrage us. Now I feel rage. You probably feel rage. We all do because this is injustice. This is so unjust. It’s hard to believe that it’s happening in our country.
This makes us feel, and rightfully so, that we are on the brink of losing our republic. When those who hold the power in our federal government weaponize that power to the extent that they will actually seek to imprison and criminalize their political enemies. How does that make us any different than what happens in Cuba or what happens in Iran or what happens in Putin’s Russia or what happens in North Korea or what happens in Venezuela? How is it materially different? Maybe those countries are further along the tyrannical authoritarian spectrum, but it seems like we’re following Dly behind the Left wants to put Trump in handcuffs because they want us to rage because this is the January 6th playbook.
We’ve been very fortunate in the last couple weeks to see the videos that were taken at the capitol on January 6th. That speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, released to Tucker Carlson, who aired bits and pieces of them in a couple of days on his show that destroyed the narratives that the Left has been propagating about January 6th, about the Qanon Shaman, about Ray Epps, about all different kinds of, of things that the Left had accused us or the people who were there of doing.
It wasn’t an insurrection, it wasn’t violent, it was certainly staged by the feds who were provoking it. We knew all of that. It was great to see the validation, the exoneration, it makes it harder for the Left to push back on it, but like it or not, even if two years later we are relentlessly and tirelessly unpacking what happened on January 6th, we are being committed detectives. We were not going to let this crime go unpunished. It kind of worked.
It kind of worked. There are at least three dozen American citizens who have been detained in solitary confinement in the DC gulag since January 6th, 2021. And that is pretrial detainment. Their fundamental constitutionally protected rights have been denied based on bogus, phony, or completely trumped up charges like maybe they committed some vandalism, which is wrong, but insurrection, seditious conspiracy treason, I don’t think so.
They weren’t even armed January 6th to a certain extent, fulfilled exactly what the Left wanted it to fulfill. They wanted to use it as a way of portraying everybody who supported President Trump and everybody who had questions about what happened in the November, 2020 presidential election as terrorists as Insurrectionists. And they used that situation fomented by the feds. It wasn’t organic, it wasn’t real to demonize all of us.
And the purpose of demonizing all of us isn’t just a PR trick. It wasn’t just to win an election. They used that vilification of us based on our politics as the pretext to violate our rights. It was a test balloon to see if the American people would push back, and a couple people did, a few people, people like Julie Kelly, but by and large, the American people either bought the Leftist narrative, including many Republicans bought the Leftist narrative on January 6th, or it was such a convoluted, complicated scheme by the Left, staged by the feds that the American people simply lost interest.
When a crime has been committed and those who perpetrate it are not held accountable, it will happen again. It’s not a matter of if, it’s just a matter of when, because when a criminal gets away with a crime, that criminal is emboldened, they crave it, they will do it again, and they are doing it again. This is what we face with the Manhattan District Attorney and this impending reported indictment of President Trump. They want us to be enraged because they know we will be righteously angry because it is such a miscarriage of justice. There are hardly words to express the extent of it.
And they want us to protest because that is a valid recourse for us to, as our founding documents say, petition the government for a redress of grievances, our right to assembly, our right to free speech when we feel like our votes. We’re not sure if our votes are counted when we are not sure if our public officials listen to us. We gather in masses in the street and we force them to listen to us because it’s hard to ignore a crowd. It’s easy sometimes to ignore one voice or two voices, individuals standing here and there. But when we stand arm to arm and get together, it’s hard for our collective voices to be ignored.
And so the Left hijacked that they said, okay, well, we’re gonna take these peaceful, peaceful protesters because that’s what Republicans are. We’re not Antifa, we’re not Black. Lives matter. They took peaceful protesters and they faked violence, they fomented violence. And in a group of millions of people, regardless of the, of, of the core ideology, the shared ideology of these millions of people, there are going to be a few crazies.
Doesn’t matter what side of the aisle you’re on, doesn’t matter what ideology, what gathering. If you have a group of millions of people, you are going to have nutty people. And so the feds infiltrate. They seek out these, these nutty ones and they trick these nutty people into being agitators, into being more violent than they would be without being provoked by the feds. And then they associate everybody, even the peaceful people with the nutty people, label them all as terrorists and insurrectionists and use it as a way to violate our rights.
That is the January 6th playbook. And that is what the Left wants from this. Sure, it’s great for them if they get to actually indict Trump, if they get to humiliate them, if they get a perp walk, if they get to feel all hoy toy high and mighty, it’d be even greater for them. They think if President Trump didn’t run in 2024, but they actually know that he will, that’s part of their plan.
So this is the January 6th playbook. The purpose is twofold. They’re gonna, they think they’re gonna stop Trump from running in 2024, which they won’t. And they think they’re gonna scare everyone who is a good person from being involved in politics because who would put themselves and their family in line for this persecution. It’s not even prosecution because it’s not justice, it’s persecution based on his political views that oppose theirs.
They are trying to January 6th, thus into tyranny. This is the January 6th playbook. They’re trying to provoke protests by first abusing power. They use their abusive power to provoke righteous protests and they select the few people who misbehave. They charge those few people like terrorists, even if they’re just silly malcontent agitators.
They label all of us associated with the protests against the miscarriage of justice as insurrectionists. And then they violate our rights and subjugate us all based on our political views because we voted for Trump, because we support the rule of law, because we understand the threat that they pose in the deep state. It’s very eerie. These third world vibes and the person behind us, let’s talk about the person behind this. This is Alvin Bragg right here. You can see him on the screen. Alvin Bragg is the prosecutor. He is the Manhattan District attorney.
This guy is such a nutcase. This guy. Look at his face. This guy is such a dope. This guy is such a committed political activist who is using his position to actually the opposite of his oath of office. He is acting like a banana republic. He’s acting like a despot. He’s weaponizing the power of the federal government against a man simply because he doesn’t like the man’s politics. And the reason that this is 100% clear is because we, because elevating this piddly misdemeanor, which wouldn’t be prosecuted anywhere else for any other reason, it’s not a high priority.
It’s ridiculous. It’s silliest absurd. It’s just, it’s a nothing burger. This prosecutor refuses to prosecute even violent felonies in Manhattan. In 2022, Alvin Bragg reduced 52% of felony charges to misdemeanors. And yet now when it’s Trump, he’s elevating this silly misdemeanor to a felony.
George Soros gave $1 million to Alvin Bragg for his reelection bid. 1 million. George Soros himself has admitted that this progressive prosecutor project that he’s involved in, the intention of that is to prosecute felonies less. The intention of that is to send fewer people to prison because he doesn’t want, he doesn’t believe in our criminal justice system, in our law enforcement system. Doesn’t believe in prisons, doesn’t believe in police. This is, this is the Black Lives Matter. Antifa ne Marxist Open Society, George Soros agenda. George Soros himself has admitted Alvin Bragg is on this list. There’s a Wall Street Journal article that actually quotes George Soros talking about which prosecutors he’s funded because he wants them to change the way that they prosecute crime.
And by change the way they prosecute crime, I mean not prosecute crimes. Alvin Gregg is on that list. So funny then that all of a sudden, this guy who has refused to prosecute violent crimes, who has taken ha over half of felonies and reduced them to misdemeanors is suddenly taking this little silly nothing of a misdemeanor that would never even be a real misdemeanor because no one cares and elevating it to a felony, especially when it’s the former president of the United States, which like it or not, the precedence of our country, the history of our country is the bar for charging former presidents for wrongdoing is actually higher than the bar for charging everyday Americans because the peaceful transfer of power and the perception of political targeting is so important to the longevity of our republic that we would rather let go small offenses.
We’d rather just let them slide by wrong as they may be, than damage that perception of peaceful transfer of power and create instead a perception of political targeting. This guy that John Cardillo tweeted a couple days ago that his New York Police Department sources said that Alvin Bragg himself was too stupid to concoct a scheme like this and that the responsibility for this lies with his deputy with Bragg’s Deputy Meg Reese.
That will be interesting to watch that unfold. There’s been no, no updated reporting past that, that initial report from John Cardillo. We will have to see Kevin McCarthy, Speaker of the House. Let me bring up his statement. He had a, this is a pretty good point he was talking about. It’s kind of the same point that John Cardillo is making when John is saying, well, maybe Alvin Bragg isn’t the one behind this.
Maybe he’s just the tool being used since he’s a tool being used by George Soros, maybe he’s being used by others. Kevin McCarthy says, here we go again outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump. I’m directing relevant committees. Speaker McCarthy says to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions, that is a good move by Speaker McCarthy.
That is the proper use of the oversight authority of the United States Congress, because of course Merrick Garland is aware of this. Of course, the Department of Justice knows about this. Of course, the deep staters in the Biden administration are involved in this. Of course, Alvin Bragg, he might be an individually a bitter partisan himself. He might be completely bought off by George Soros.
All he might be controlled by his deputy. All of those things could very easily be true, but there is no way that this is an independent operation. There is no way that this guy looked at this, this case which federal prosecutors, by the way, have declined to pursue in the path. There’s no way he looked at this and thought, oh my goodness, this is a must prosecute. This is a case that I must try, not a chance in this world.
Did he come to that conclusion independently, someone is directing him and if Kevin McCarthy can figure out, can follow the money trail back to the federal government to see if there is federal money being spent on this. And that will tell us a lot more about who’s involved in this than simply, than simply blaming Alvin Bragg himself, who is not, who is certainly not an isolated character.
Here’s the thing though, here’s the political aspect of it. I think that this is really important because Elon Musk and others have said, well, this pretty much guarantees if, if the da, if the Manhattan DA does in fact indict Trump. This guarantees that President Trump will win the election in 2024. I don’t think that’s true. I think the Left is counting on a different strategy and I think this is how the Left is looking at it. The left believes that indicting President Trump will guarantee that Trump wins the Republican nomination in 2024. And I think that’s probably true. If Trump is indicted, this will foment so much righteous anger within us because of this miscarriage of justice that it will, it will, it will cause people to to support Trump. People who might have previously or up until now been thinking, well, do I want Trump as my, as my candidate?
Do I want Santas, do I want someone else? This will, this will cause people support to coalesce around Trump. I think that that’s accurate, an accurate prediction or assumption that the Left is operating under. This is what they want. The left wants President Trump to be the Republican nominee for president in 2024 because they have done two things. They’ve successfully defeated him once in 2020 by hook or by crook or by hook and by crook they’ve successfully defeated him and they have vilified him in the eyes of the American people. They’ve vilified him in the eyes of independence unfairly.
Sure, but successfully the Left has vilified President Trump in the eyes of the American people. And so they think, okay, well, liberal voters or maybe even independent voters, are any independent voters, liberal voters going to look at what’s unfolding now and say, well, oh my goodness, the bitterly partisan Manhattan District attorney, Alvin Bragg, who I’ve never heard of until this moment, is unfairly targeting President Trump abusing his power.
And by gosh, and by golly, that means that I’m going to vote for this orange Cheeto Nazi as I’ve called him and I’ve hated him for the last eight years, but now I’m gonna cast my vote for him. Like, no, obviously not. What this will do is this will cause Republican support for President Trump, but it will do nothing to change the opinions of the Left. Who has decided that Trump is worse than the devil. So the strategic move here by the Left is they hope that this will cause President Trump to be the nominee for the Republican Party in 2024. And they think if Trump is the nominee that he will not win, who even if it’s Biden, that he will not win the general election. This is their cynical move. This is their plan. This is why they waited until now to do this.
This is why they didn’t do it before the midterms. They waited because this will almost guarantee that President Trump is in fact the nominee and people will gladly support him. Republicans will happily support him because this is so unjust, because this is so unfair. The other, the other thing, the Manhattan District Attorney released a statement in the wake of this. This is what he said, Alvin Bragg said, I’m sure you have seen this, was he didn’t release a statement.
Let me rephrase that. He sent out an email to his staff. Politico got ahold of this email and this is what the dear colleague’s email said. He said, I’m sure you’ve seen the ongoing press attention and public comments surrounding in an ongoing investigation by this office. Please know that your safety is our top priority. We have full confidence in our outstanding security staff and investigators and will continue to coordinate with all of them.
We do not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or threaten the rule of law in New York. Our law enforcement partners will ensure that any specific or credible threats against the office will be fully investigated, et cetera, et cetera. And when I read this, I thought, okay, well there you go. That shows you exactly what Alvin Bragg’s ideology is surrounding this. He said, we do not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or threaten the rule of law.
So the idea of protests that President Trump called for when he said, protests take back our country. The idea of protests are what Alvin Bragg considers to be a intimidation or a threat to the rule of law, which again shows you that the purpose, the reason that the Left wants to indict, the reason that the Manhattan District Attorney is potentially going to indict President Trump is because they know it will spawn another January 6th.
And that’s exactly what they want to happen. They want to label you as an insurrectionist. They want to label you as a terrorist because there’s no easier pretext to violate someone’s rights than if that person is a terrorist. They want to label you as a terrorist because of your political views, and they’re going to violate Trump’s rights because they also love to humiliate him in the process.
But the real targets, the real goal is to suppress and silence and cancel and oppress half of the country who rejects the neo-Marxist ideology of the radical left and the Democratic party. Don’t fall for it.
