Democrat politicians were ready to chime in on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s phony indictment of former President Donald Trump. Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California, who in 2018 urged Citizens to harass Trump administration personnel who dared to show their faces in public, once again revealed her real vengeful nature with a delighted tweet:
SO Trump finally got indicted! I predicted he would and I predicted that Stormy Daniels would get him! Sometimes justice works! #TrumpIndictment

Numerous other famous Democrats, on the other hand, appear to have participated in a focus group, as the phrases “sober” and “sober” occur in practically all of their remarks about the indictment.
The majority of them have cheered on phony Trump charges for years, with the serpentine California Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff screaming for The Donald to be prosecuted with something — anything — from the days of the Russia Russia collusion investigation.
Even after being exposed in so many falsehoods, the Shifty One is still attempting to seem like a statesman.
The indictment of former President Donald J. Trump by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office over his alleged participation in a campaign fraud and hush money scheme that already sent his former attorney Michael Cohen to jail is a sobering and unprecedented development.
Eric Swalwell, who is usually good for a hot absurd take, also opted to pretend it was a solemn occasion in a serious land:

“The indictment of a former president is a somber day for America,” he opined. “It’s also a time to put faith in our judicial system. Donald Trump deserves every protection provided to him by the Constitution. As that unfolds, let us neither celebrate nor destroy. Justice benefits us all.”
This individual blasted Trump in 23 percent of his tweets in 2020, considerably more than any other Democrat at the time, according to the Mercury News. He also acted as the trial manager for Trump’s second impeachment trial, was a member of the overhyped January 6 Committee, and referred to January 6 as “one of the darkest days in our nation’s history.”
I can also think of 9/11, Pearl Harbor, Antietam, and the murders of Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and John F. Kennedy… But let’s not split hairs.
You know he’s not taking his own advice—and he’s definitely celebrating. Who can forget his self-humiliation back in February 2019?

Former House Speaker and current California Congressman Nancy Pelosi likewise attempted to partake in the “I’m a very serious person” act by releasing the following statement:
The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law. No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.
This is the lady who tore up the State of the Union address of the incumbent president of the United States on the House floor, one of the most revolting political acts I have ever observed. Nonetheless, she is currently lecturing us about the rule of law.
Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer of New York appears to have hired the same publicist to publish his statement, as it sounds identical to that of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
Trump is subject to the same laws as every American. He will be able to avail himself of the legal system and a jury, not politics, to determine his fate according to the facts and the law. There should be no outside political influence, intimidation or interference in the case. I encourage both Mr. Trump’s critics and supporters to let the process proceed peacefully and according to the law.
Yet another California Democrat Representative, the intellectually-challenged Ted Lieu, felt the need to weigh in too, once again reminding us that the situation is somber. Or was it sober?
This is a somber moment for America. We should let the judicial system do its job without interference.
Ted, we should let the court system do its work without allowing political vendettas to irreparably compromise its legitimacy.
In reality, this indictment is neither dark nor calm; it’s on fire. Practically every reasonable person can understand that this is a political activity and not a quest for “justice.” Those who are now stating that people should not rejoice are the same ones who have vociferously demanded Trump’s removal by whatever means necessary, and you can bet they’re all popping champagne corks tonight.
They lack credibility and should be ashamed of themselves for allowing their personal dislike for someone to sell the spirit of our justice system in exchange for a small amount of return.
