BREAKING: Here’s a rundown of all the news related to the Trump Indictment Today:

1) The Trump Indictment has just been UNSEALED! Defense and weapons capabilities, Nuclear information and other defense secrets were all included in the Top Secret documents Trump held.

2) Trump aide Walt Nauta has been INDICTED Nauta was allegedly involved in moving boxes of classified documents following subpoenas by the government.

3))Trump allegedly on tape He is allegedly talking about not being able to declassify documents as a former President, and appears to have shared a classified document about Iran.

4) Trump’s lawyers have stepped down Following the indictment the team of attorneys representing Trump in the documents case has stepped down.

All in all Donald Trump had 36 counts against him.

Aileen Cannon, a U.S. district judge appointed by former President Donald Trump to the federal bench, will initially oversee the federal case against the man who elevated her to the role,.

Cannon was assigned Trump’s case while a magistrate will handle his first appearance Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Miami, the latest twist in a legal battle of historic magnitude. It remains unclear at this stage, however, if Cannon will ultimately preside over the entire case.

Even before the documents case, Cannon has been linked to Trump legal cases.

While Cannon was randomly assigned the Mar-a-Lago case, Trump in April 2022 sought to get an unrelated racketeering lawsuit against Hillary Clinton before the Southern District of Florida, where Cannon is a judge. That case was sent to Clinton-appointee U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks instead, but Trump asked him to recuse himself from the case. Middlebrooks took notice of Trump’s attempt to get a judge seen as friendly in that case and specifically mentioned Cannon in court documents.

You get the tar and I’ll get the feathers?


BREAKING NEWS: New York Grand Jury Votes To Indict Donald Trump

Until now, I didn’t know it was possible to feel overjoyed and pee-your-pants terrified at the same time.

Via The New York Times:

A Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Donald J. Trump on Thursday for his role in paying hush money to a porn star, according to four people with knowledge of the matter, a historic development that will shake up the 2024 presidential race and forever mark him as the nation’s first former president to face criminal charges.
The felony indictment, filed under seal by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, will likely be announced in the coming days. By then, prosecutors working for the district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, will have asked Mr. Trump to surrender and to face arraignment on charges that remain unknown for now.
Mr. Trump has for decades avoided criminal charges despite persistent scrutiny and repeated investigations, creating an aura of legal invincibility that the vote to indict now threatens to puncture. His actions surrounding his 2020 electoral defeat are now the focus of a separate federal investigation, and a Georgia prosecutor is in the final stages of an investigation into Mr. Trump’s attempts to reverse the election results in that state.

Alvin Bragg’s a clever fellow – kept everyone guessing, and since now it appears Weisselberg may have flipped, it explains the timing perfectly.

Robert Mueller’s Grand Jury Has Already Begun Issuing Subpoenas

Grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with a June 2016 meeting that included President Donald Trump’s son, his son-in-law and a Russian lawyer, two sources told Reuters on Thursday, in a sign that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is gathering pace. The sources added that Mueller had convened a grand jury in Washington to help investigate allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

Mueller’s use of a grand jury could give him expansive tools to pursue evidence, including issuing subpoenas and compelling witnesses to testify. The impaneling of the grand jury was first reported by the Wall Street Journal. A spokesman for Mueller declined comment. A grand jury is a group of ordinary citizens who, working behind closed doors, considers evidence of potential criminal wrongdoing that a prosecutor is investigating and decides whether charges should be brought. – via Reuters

Given the fact that Mueller inherited an investigation that began months ago, it would suggest that he has uncovered information pointing in the direction of criminal charges. But against whom?

The one time I wouldn’t mind doing jury duty and I’m not picked.
