Liberals are salivating over the premise of former President Donald Trump being charged with a crime. Indeed, Trump has been liberal America’s public enemy number one, consuming liberal attention in a way perhaps no one else ever has, for nearly eight years.
In all that time, charging and convicting Trump has hung over Democrats like some sort of Golden Fleece, the ultimate prize. Now, with three separate prosecutors homing in on Trump, liberal hopes are reaching a fever pitch.
“Trump has stayed one step ahead of the law for years,” VICE reported in an article titled ‘Trump Is Closer Than Ever to Being Charged With a Crime.’ “His luck appears to be finally running out.”
Yes, Trump is being investigated on multiple fronts, and certainly could be charged criminally.
But something tells me liberals should not get their hopes up; Trump has a seemingly supernatural ability to slip away from trouble.
And frankly, any report from a liberal outlet about how close Trump is to being charged criminally deserves a bit of skepticism; those same outlets have been convinced Donald Trump was going down since before he even took office.
Donald Trump and Those Legal Woes
Donald Trump is being investigated – well, a lot these days; I don’t want to downplay that point. “Three sets of criminal prosecutors based in Georgia, Washington D.C., and New York are closing in on Trump,” VICE reported. “All three are pursuing cases that could yield criminal charges within the next few months.”
In Georgia, the investigation revolves around whether Donald Trump interfered with Georgia’s 2020 election results.
In New York, the Manhattan District Attorney is investigating Trump’s hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels. And in Washington D.C., the DOJ’s Jack Smith is investigating Trump on two fronts.
The first relates to Trump’s alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. The second considers Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents (which were recovered from his Mar-a-Lago estate).
The Georgia investigation could be moving forward imminently. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis told a local judge that charging decisions into Trump’s alleged interference in Georgia’s 2020 election results would be made shortly.
Titus Nichols, a defense attorney in Georgia, believes Trump will be charged. “He’s getting charged with something,” Nichols said. “If [Willis] was going to NOT charge him, then it would be a simple, singular decision and she’d be done with it. Now, there is still the huge question of what charges exactly will be brought, and against who.”
To date, Trump hasn’t been charged with anything. Yet, the myriad legal problems may be chipping away at Trump’s political support, which seems to be in decline.
Trump no longer has the stranglehold on the GOP that he once enjoyed. Opponents, like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, are starting to poke their heads out and flirt with the prospect of challenging Trump for the nomination. Nikki Haley has been so bold as to declare her candidacy.
Haley was Trump’s UN Ambassador, and once swore not to run if Trump were in the race, but Haley’s change of heart serves as an indication toward how the GOP is feeling generally. Donald Trump has weakened, become vulnerable, and left room for others to operate. And part of that weakening stems from Trump’s ongoing legal problems.
On the other hand, Trump’s MAGA base is hardly dissuaded; Trump’s legal problems seem to embolden MAGA, to validate the idea that Trump is the victim of a witch-hunt.
We’ll see what happens in the next few months, but I’m not holding my breath for Donald Trump to be charged and convicted of a crime.

I cannot recall the last time any high-up politician was convicted of misdoings. They’re rarely (if ever) held accountable for their actions. They exist in a different world than the vast majority of ordinary citizens. It’s sickening.

If you havs studied the rise of fascism you know the appeal of Trump to a combination of hesitant elitists and enthusiastic riffraff. THE SHAME OF AMERICA.

The only thing fake about Trump was his loss in the 2020 election.
