Ex-US-Präsident: Trump in Dokumentenaffäre angeklagt
Der Fund geheimer Regierungsdokumente in seinem Anwesen hat für Ex-US-Präsident Trump ein juristisches Nachspiel. Laut eigener Aussage wurde Anklage gegen ihn erhoben. Seit Monaten untersuchte ein Sonderermittler den Fall.
Q: what do you call Trump being indicted?
A: a good start.
Now do Clarence Thomas.
Trump was continually "the first president who..." during his corrupt dynasty. This indictment is one more on a long list.
It turns out #Trump has been #indicted for stealing top secret documents. Now they need to indict him for inciting a riot.

And here come the bootlickers as expected…Vivek Ramaswamy responds to #Trump indictment: “It would be much easier for me to win this election if Trump weren’t in the race, but I stand for principles over politics. I commit to pardon Trump promptly on January 20, 2025 and to restore the rule of law in our country." #trumpindictment

Trump has been indicted on 7 counts - according to him... DOJ not saying yet.

May they burn, and rot in the same pit as Antichrist Trump, in Hell. Amen. #MAGA #Trump
A third charge is false statements, according to sources familiar with the indictment.

Trump will do ANYTHING to save himself.
He’s got all the goods on all these people. Financial crimes. Affairs. Their Epstein adventures and other probably much, much worse things.
…and he’ll use it.
Former President Donald Trump claims he's been indicted on Truth Social. And we're not talking indicted next Tuesday -- but NOW. This is real, so buckle in.

What a day, a religious bigot bites the dust, and trump is indicted !!! wow #trump
No one is above the law.
At least that’s the way it’s supposed to work.

Me twiddling my mustache in the background while #Trump proclaims his innocence.
The best part about this #indictment is that #trump will either shut up about the documents or double down with the bitching and bury himself.
If #Trump has been #indicted for #Conspiracy as rumored, someone else is in the pipeline. You can't have a conspiracy of one. Who will it be?
In a video filmed in his Bedminster office that #Trump posted on his Truth Social platform on Thursday evening, he declared: “I’m an innocent man. I’m an innocent person.”

Retention Of National Defense Info, Obstruction Reportedly In #Trump Charges
Federal prosecutors are reportedly bringing charges for “willful retention of national defense information,” per ABC.
If convicted, Trump could be disqualified from being able to hold future office.
Other charges, also reported by The Guardian, include conspiracy to obstruct justice, making false statements, and corruptly concealing government documents. #TrumpIndicted #trumpcrimes

Pat Robertson died AND Trump got indicted — June 8 is a hell of a day!
Since there is no chance I would be on any federal jury, I feel free to say, I hope they nail #Trump to the wall.
In other news, #Trump got indicted (again). In other-other news, water is wet, and crime wave sweeps Gotham!
History is always happening, of course.
But we happen to live in times when REALLY OBVIOUSLY HISTORIC EVENTS are happening on a weekly -- sometimes daily -- basis.
The indictment of a former President of the United States for federal crimes is one of those events.
A REALLY BIG one.
Trump is the first former president in U.S. history to face federal charges.
The indictment was filed in Miami and per one source there were seven counts.
Trump is expected to surrender himself to authorities in Miami on Tuesday.

@GottaLaff Typical #Trump #lawfare move, never admitting he lost. #TFG does this to exhaust opponents, to get them to quit. But #EJeanCarroll is moving forward with her other defamation suit and increased the fine to $10 million as a start.

🙄 "#Trump asked for new trial in #EJeanCarroll civil case in which jury found him liable for sexually abusing & defaming her & awarded her $5m in damages.
In filing in Manhattan fed court Trump’s lawyers said $2m award for sexual abuse portion of verdict was “excessive” bc jury found Carroll was not raped & that the conduct Carroll alleged did not cause any diagnosed mental injury.
They also said $2.7m award for defamation claim was “based upon pure speculation” #legal https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/jun/08/trump-requests-new-trial-e-jean-carroll-case
"With one or two federal indictments looking like a strong possibility, some GOP lawmakers are calling for Congress to defund the DOJ and the FBI — including Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Sen.

The Washington, D.C.-based grand jury is separate from one investigating the former president's handling of classified documents.
Via Elie Mystal:
I haven't been closely following GOP primary to elect their next Grand Wizard...but sure seems all these people are counting on #Trump being indicted for espionage but not coup so they can cont to crt votes of insurrectionists
But it's not like indictment will knock Trump out of the race. & as I've been saying, indictment at this pt is unlikely to result in a trial before primary. SO..we'll still have to see if any of them says "Espionage is bad" & run against Trump on that 1/
👀” The #DOJ is preparing to ask a Washington, DC grand jury to indict #Trump for violating the Espionage Act and for obstruction of justice as soon as Thursday, adding further weight to the legal baggage facing Trump as he campaigns for his party’s nomination in next year’s presidential election.” 1/…🪡
Mar-a-Lago ketchup reserves are about to go through some things
Multiple reports indicate that special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation of Donald Trump for the classified documents held at Mar-a-Lago is wrapping up, and some experts expect an indictment as soon as this week.

Lots of people asking if #JackSmith is doing this for convenience or legitimacy.
No. He's going to present the case where venue is, period. There may be reasons why he HAS to present 793 or false statements charges in FL. There may be reasons why he HAS to present 1519 or 2071 in DC.

The hardest thing for the prosecution to prove in prosecuting Trump for stealing classified documents was always going to be his intent. Did he have criminal intent? Did he even know he had to go through a process to declassify things, beyond just "thinking about it"?

Chris Christie threw his hat in the ring for the #Republican presidential nomination, further crowding the field. A crowded field is one of the biggest reasons why we got #Trump in 2016 - he pulled the most votes but was only around 25%.
He was able to stand out in a crowded field by good marketing and appealing to biases. A crowded field makes this possible again.
It's official, per everyone: #ChrisChristie is running. What a joke, although I hope he demolishes #Trump a few times before he drops out. #2024election
