Best News in 7 Years: NY Grand Jury Indicts Donald Trump Over Stormy Daniels Pay Offs! DA Bragg Pulls Off a Surprise


For the first time ever in history a US president has been indicted by a grand jury.

Donald Trump, the greatest political criminal in US history, is finally facing the music. To paraphrase the Rolling Stones song Trump illegally uses: “You can sometimes get what you want.”

Pop a cork!

What makes this so lovely this afternoon: DA Alvin Bragg’s office had leaked to the press that the grand jury was taking a break for a month, putting Trump into a false sense of ease. Bragg obviously knew that wasn’t true, so we give him lots of points for pulling off a head fake. Nicely done!

Also, the Wall Street Journal reports that aside from the Stormy Daniels story, the Karen McDougal-National Enquirer pay off is involved. This explains the return of Inquirer publisher David Pecker to the grand jury this week.
