I can’t help but feel that we as a nation are in a dangerous moment.
Last week New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance and New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced the indictment of the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg.
Former President Donald Trump was not charged, but his eponymous company and his CFO were.
They were indicted on state charges that allege a scheme going back 15 years — the Trump Organization for tax fraud and falsifying business records, and Weisselberg for grand larceny and tax fraud.
Many in the liberal press seemed to be gloating and gleeful. Trump is finally being held accountable, they say!
The establishment angst over the iconoclastic Trump has been palpable for some time, even before he took the oath of office in 2017.
Almost from Day One, liberal New York prosecutors have been determined to “get Trump.”
It is highly unusual – unprecedented, actually – for a former U.S. president or his business to be charged for alleged crimes before he became president, largely as a result of politically motivated investigations.
