Former President Trump continues to accumulate indictments, seemingly unphased by any lessons learned. The situation has become so convoluted that keeping track of all the charges is challenging.
The latest indictment, the fourth so far, emerged from Georgia on Monday. If Trump is found guilty, this could result in a lifelong prison sentence.
The prospects don’t look promising for Trump’s co-indictees either, including his self-proclaimed “Elite Force Strike Team” of attorneys who supported his efforts to challenge the election results.
Among them are Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani. Irony abounds in this indictment, which features RICO-themed charges. It’s noteworthy that Giuliani, once a U.S. attorney who employed anti-racketeering statutes to prosecute mafiosos in the 1980s, might be ensnared by the same legal mechanism.
“So, the Witch Hunt continues! 19 people were Indicated tonight, including the former President of the United States, me, by an out-of-control and very corrupt District Attorney who campaigned and raised money on, ‘I will get Trump.’ And what about those Indictment Documents put out today, long before the Grand Jury even voted, and then quickly withdrawn? Sounds Rigged to me! Why didn’t they Indict 2.5 years ago? Because they wanted to do it right in the middle of my political campaign. Witch Hunt!”
Trump’s response to all this turmoil is predictably unrestrained. He took to Truth Social well past midnight to voice his thoughts. While the actual content of his message holds little significance, the absence of CAPS LOCK intensity is worth noting.
This might convey more about his demeanor than the fact that he mistakenly wrote “Indicated” instead of “indicted.” In a timely twist of TV, Hillary managed to find humor in the situation, displaying a rare smile amidst the chaos.
