Donald Trump Is Self Destructing Right In Front Of Our Eyes

Donald Trump is quite mad over one interview: Mark Pomerantz resigned from his position as a Manhattan prosecutor in February 2022 when DA Alvin Bragg refused to bring a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump. Pomerantz was frustrated with Bragg’s decision and wrote a letter to say so.

“The team that has been investigating Mr. Trump harbors no doubt about whether he committed crimes – he did,” Pomerantz wrote.

One year later, Pomerantz is still positive that Donald Trump is guilty. Speaking on 60 Minutes, Pomerantz said that “if you take the exact same conduct – and make it not about Donald Trump and not about a former president of the United States, would the case have been indicted? It would have been indicted in a flat second.” 

Pomerantz, it should be noted, has a book coming out: People vs. Donald Trump. In the book, Pomerantz was, naturally, critical of Trump.

“[Trump] demanded absolute loyalty and would go after anyone who crossed him. He seemed always to stay one step ahead of the law…In my career as a lawyer, I had encountered only one other person who touched all of these bases: John Gotti, the head of the Gambino organized crime family.”

Donald Trump Critical of Pomerantz

The feeling is mutual. Donald Trump spends a lot of time on social media ripping into Pomerantz. Here’s one example of Trump raging against Pomerantz’s book:

“Wow, the book just put out by Crooked Hillary Clinton’s attorney, Mark Pomerantz, is turning out to be a hit on the District Attorney and the “weak” case “with many fatal flaws.” Prosecutors in the D.A.’s Office actually quit in protest in that they thought it was “irresponsible” and very “unfair” to “President Trump.” They also felt they didn’t want to rely on a SleazeBag disbarred Lawyer From Hell like Michael Cohen as a witness. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY THOUGHT THE CASE WAS TERRIBLE – A LOSER!” 

Donald Trump didn’t like Pomerantz’s 60 Minutes interview, either.

“The 60 Minutes “hit job” doesn’t say that the Financial Statements have a powerful & complete “Disclaimer Clause,” that the properties & assets are generally worth far more today than they were in the financial statement, that the most valuable asset is not even listed in the statement, that lawyer Mark Pomerantz & his law firm were Clinton’s lawyers who then went to work for the D.A. to “get Trump,” that Pomerantz & his antics make it impossible for me to be treated fairly, & NOBODY WAS HURT!”

Finally, Trump got around to making something similar to a valid, coherent point:

“Crooked Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, radically deranged Mark Pomerantz, led the fake investigation into me and my business at the Manhattan D.A.’s Office and quit because D.A. Bragg, rightfully, wanted to drop the “weak” and “fatally flawed” case. Now, Pomerantz got himself a book deal, and is obsessively spreading falsehoods about me. With all of this vicious disinformation being revealed by a “prosecutor,” how can I ever be treated fairly in New York, or anywhere else? End the Witch Hunts!”

Trump Puts His Foot In His Mouth, Again

Donald Trump has a habit of making things worse for himself – these social media postings don’t do the former president any favors; rather these sorts of internet rantings make it hard to believe the guy was ever president.

Every time Trump writes something online, he degrades the dignity of the Oval Office. But the valid and coherent point Trump finally got around to making is that there is something unsavory about a prosecutor quitting over prosecutorial discretion he doesn’t happen to agree with and then securing a book deal and giving high-profile interviews to complain about that prosecutorial discretion.
