Inside Trump's 1st Indictment




Hard to believe, it appears that the former disgraced, twice impeached, and 4 times indicted president is listening to his lawyers.... Trump posted on Truth Social post "Rather than releasing the Report on the Rigged & Stolen Georgia 2020 Presidential Election on Monday, my lawyers would prefer putting this, I believe, Irrefutable & Overwhelming evidence of Election Fraud & Irregularities in formal Legal Filings as we fight to dismiss this disgraceful Indictment by a publicity & campaign finance seeking D.A., who sadly presides over a record breaking Murder & Violent Crime area, Atlanta. Therefore, the News Conference is no longer necessary!” in reference to a news conference he planned to conduct on Monday August 21, 2023.


Yes indeed he does have the best indictments, in fact he is the only former or sitting US President ever to be indicted. For the doubting thomas' in the audience simply go to Verify's website to confirm this fact.


Cornell Law School states the indictment of a sitting or former president remain an uncertain area of Constitutional law. The Cornell website goes on "The Constitution does not directly address indictments for either, and the Supreme Court has never had an opportunity to rule directly on the issue. Overall, most legal experts support the possibility of indicting a former president at least for certain crimes, but there is less consensus on the indictment of a sitting president." To be impartial, Trump is not the only US President surrounded by scandals. However that is not this blogs focus. If interested in reading more about the history of other presidential impeachments we suggest the History Channels: "How many US Presidents have faced Impeachment?"


First Indictment: 34 Felony counts in hush money scheme

Mr Trump appeared in Manhattan court on Tuesday April 2, 2023 to be arraigned on charges that he participated in a scheme to bury allegations of extramarital affairs that came up in his 2016 campaign, by falsifying Trump internal business records in attempts to cover up an illegal effort to illegally influence the 2016 election. The indictment includes 34 counts of misleading records associated with checks that Donald Trump sent to his personal lawyer/problem fixer as payment for Michale Cohen's role in paying off porn actor Stormy Daniel. Trump entered a plea of "not guilty'.


Afterwards Asst. Attorney Christopher Conroy told a group of reporters; “The defendant, Donald J. Trump, falsified New York business records in order to conceal an illegal conspiracy to undermine the integrity of the 2016 presidential election and other violations of election laws." In typical fashion, Trump totally dismissed the indictment stating “I never thought anything like this could happen in America,”.


Right again...nothing like this has ever happened in America.
