How Stormy Daniels Could Lead to Donald Trump’s First Impeachment

Donald Trump continues to spew violent rhetoric and lash out on social media at the New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg which leads the investigation to hush money allegedly made to Stormy Daniels.

After posting a picture of him acting Handle a baseball bat next to Mr. Bragg’s head, he later called him a “degenerate psychopath” while declaring that no crime had been committed and warned against “potential death and destruction” if he is charged.

Mr Bragg has said the former president raised a “false” expectation of indictment when the grand jury skipped its hearing on the matter on Thursday.

In a letter In response to Republican House Judiciary Committee chairmen, the Manhattan DA’s office general counsel said their request for documents “first came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested the next day and his lawyers reportedly urged you to intervene . Neither fact is a legitimate basis for congressional investigation”.

A decision on possible charges against Trump has been postponed until next week at the earliest. There are a number of reasons why a grand jury hearing would be delayed, but none have been specified.


Threatening posts would be a breach of bond if Trump had been arrested

Reacting to the former president’s recent tirade on Truth Social, attorney Ron Filipkowski noted on Twitter: “If Trump had already been arrested and was out on bail, the posts he’s making now would be grounds for his creditor to be recalled and jailed until his trial. Once arrested, any judge will make threatening posts against prosecutors, judges and juries a violation of parole.”

He added: “In short, this is not going to end and will only get worse until someone finally holds him accountable, if that ever happens.”

Trump lashes out at ‘degenerate psychopath’ Manhattan DA

Continuing his posts attacking Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg ahead of a grand jury vote on whether to indict him over the Stormy Daniels hush money, Donald Trump was back on Truth Social for a late-night tirade.

The former president, who had previously posted a photo in which he appeared to be carrying a baseball bat next to Bragg’s head, called him “a degenerate psychopath who really hates the United States!”

What kind of person can accuse another person, in this case a former President of the United States, who received more votes than any sitting President in history, and leading candidate (by far!) for the Republican Party nomination, with a crime, when it is known by all that NO crime has been committed, and also known that the potential death and destruction in such a false accusation could be disastrous for our country? Why & who would do such a thing? Just a degenerate psychopath who really hates the USA!

A Trump spokesperson clarified that the former president’s team has “no notification” of an impending arrest other than “illegal leaks.”

Resurfaced clip of Trump interview appears to undermine his Stormy Daniels defense

“They weren’t taken out of the campaign finance — that’s a big deal,” Trump said at the time, referring to the money paid to the porn star to keep quiet about an affair she claims they had in 2006.

The $130,000 payment was made by then-Trump fixer Michael Cohen in the final days of the 2016 campaign. Cohen later spent time behind bars as a result of charges stemming from the payment.

“They didn’t come out of the campaign, they came out of me,” Trump said in 2018 during the White House interview.

Cohen was compensated for the funds, which were recorded as a legal fee in Trump’s business records.

Sinema calls Democrats ‘old dudes who eat jello’

Late Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona doesn’t have kind words for her Democratic colleagues as her political future hangs in the balance.

Jonathan Martin from Politico reported on Thursday that, since she defected from the Democratic Party earlier this year, Sinema has courted Republican donors, regaling them with unflattering portrayals of her former party members.

“Old dudes eat Jell-O, everybody talks about how great they are,” Sinema told a laughing group of Republican lobbyists in Washington earlier this year about why she had stopped attending Democratic caucus luncheons. “I don’t really have to be there for that. It’s an hour and a half twice a week that I can get back.”

According to Martin’s reporting, Sinema had even more to say.

“Northerners and Westerners put cool whip on their Jell-O and Southerners put cottage cheese,” she said.

The redacted video shows Giuliani blasting Trump’s new “evidence” in the Stormy Daniels case

Mr. Giuliani complicated Donald Trump’s defense in May 2018 when he appeared on Fox News and admitted that Trump was aware of the payments to women who claimed to have had affairs with him.

He said then that Trump “knew about the general arrangement” and that his lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen was compensated for paying Stormy Daniels with money that was “funneled” through a law firm.

Mr. Cohen is now one of his former boss’ staunch critics.

Trump dismissed this notion at the time, saying Giuliani “started yesterday. He’s going to find out the facts.”

Ron DeSantis breaks silence on allegations he observed torture at Guantanamo

Ron DeSantis has broken his silence on allegations that he observed the force-feeding of detainees at Guantanamo Bay during his time as a Navy attorney there.

The independent reported last week claims by a former inmate at the prison camp, Mansoor Adayfi, that Mr. DeSantis observed him brutally force-feeding guards during a 2006 hunger strike — a practice the United Nations characterized as torture.

DeSantis was stationed at the base between March 2006 and January 2007, according to his military recordsand part of his role involved hearing complaints and concerns from prisoners about their conditions.

“I was a junior officer. I didn’t have the authority to approve anything,” DeSantis told Piers Morgan in an interview set to air Thursday.

“There might have been a commander who would have fed if someone died, but it wasn’t something that I would even have had the authority to do.”
