Federal prosecutors told former President Donald Trump’s legal team that he is a target of their investigation into efforts to undo his loss in the 2020 election, a sign that he is likely to be indicted in the case. This will bring to 5 the number of indictments against former President Trump leading into the 2024 Presidential election season. Trump, who is the front-runner for the Republican nomination, already faces the following charges:
  1. mishandling classified documents after leaving the White House,
  2. criminal charges in New York,
  3. the prospect of an additional indictment by a local prosecutor in Georgia
  4. and, this one, regarding the 2022 election.
Plus, he has already faced charges brought in the E. Jean Carroll rape case. That makes 5. Is there still anyone who thinks these indictments are NOT politically motivated? DEMs no, not political. REPs yes, political. The answer is clearly yes.  Persecution vs prosecution. Biden indictments will likely be coming, will they be politically motivated, too? DEMs yes, they will be. REPs no, not political.
  • Consistent with Trump Jan 6th investigations/indictments, and, in addition to any Biden investigation indictments, why not look at investigations/indictments of Congressional politicians (Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, the squad, and others) who supported and incited the 574 riots of 2020?
Both will say the investigations/indictments mean saving our democracy and illustrate equal justice for everyone. Truth is, it is equal political persecution for everyone. What extreme act one side does, the other must do a similar act for political balance. That is what we can look forward to in the 2024 Presidential election, each side calling the other a criminal. It appears this legal assault on Trump will not make him exit the race.  On the other hand, Biden has bigger problems than Republican lawsuits in getting his nomination. The only hope we have for a 'normal' (which won't happen no matter who runs), is for both Trump and Biden to not be part of their respective tickets.  Good bet that Biden won't be the Democrat nominee.  Not so sure we won't still see Trump in 2024.
