An more criminal probe of Donald Trump is ready to commence. The Manhattan district attorney’s office is seeking to reopen its criminal investigation into the former president, according to The New York Times. This follows the Department of Justice’s announcement of a special counsel investigation into Trump’s theft of secret materials.
Due to a lack of progress, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg decided in April to effectively end the investigation into an alleged “hush money” payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Two of the office’s senior prosecutors working on the case quit in disgust, rushing to the media to declare that Trump was being let off the hook despite being a criminal. It was a remarkable reveal of the lawfare that occurs so frequently in organizations we are meant to trust.
However, it appears that the pressure was simply too great. Now that the criminal investigation has resumed, prosecutors are looking for methods to put the nasty orange guy behind bars.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office has moved to jump-start its criminal investigation into Donald Trump, according to people with knowledge of the matter, seeking to breathe new life into an inquiry that once seemed to have reached a dead end.
Under the new district attorney, Alvin Bragg, the prosecutors have returned to the long-running investigation’s original focus: a hush-money payment to a porn star who said she had an affair with Trump.
This is particularly poisonous because it is so blatantly a fishing expedition designed to further party goals. The district attorney’s office has been unable to develop a case involving the hush-money payment for years. In actuality, their argument was so poor that they considered relying on an untested legal theory. As soon as he assumed office, Bragg discarded this notion. Now, the “zombie theory,” as office prosecutors reportedly refer to it, has returned.
Does this sound like the way the judicial system should operate?
The idea of building a case around the hush money had resurfaced with such regularity in recent years that prosecutors came to refer to it as the “zombie theory,” an idea that just wouldn’t die, one of the people said.
Under Bragg’s predecessor, the district attorney’s office rejected the idea of focusing a case solely on the hush money, concluding, with the help of outside legal experts, that it would hinge on a largely untested and therefore risky legal theory. And if Bragg were to charge Trump without uncovering any new evidence or relying on a more conventional theory, he would risk having a judge or appellate court throw out the case.
According to the Times, the goal is to attempt to “flip” Allen Weisselberg once again. In order to increase pressure, prosecutors are preparing to file more charges against the former Trump associate in an unrelated case. Again, does this seem like the operation of a just and impartial legal system?
I have no idea what the criminal accusation is in this case, and I doubt the Manhattan DA is aware of it either. The main purpose appears to be a frantic desire to remove Trump from office, regardless of how legally dubious this endeavor may be. Government soldiers are invading the zone to achieve this objective.
It has been stated already, but it needs repeating. If you reside in a blue district with a blue district attorney, you might consider moving. Because they will attempt to ruin you if you do not possess the correct political ideas, whether we are discussing a case like Trump’s or Kyle Rittenhouse’s. And the government’s full might is nothing to toy with.
