Democrats thought this was the moment they were finally going to see Donald Trump in an orange prison jumpsuit.
But just like before their dreams went down in flames.
And now Democrats just got smacked with some really bad news about Donald Trump.
The Democrat District Attorney in Manhattan, Alvin Bragg, invited Donald Trump to testify in front of a grand jury running the latest witch hunt against Trump.
A DA in New York taking that step means charges are imminent.
Bragg’s previous attempt to indict Trump for tax fraud and other financial crimes collapsed when even the highly partisan Bragg had to admit there was no evidence to back up a case.
However, Bragg knows he is running for re-election soon and needed to produce results to appease liberal voters.
That’s why Bragg is looking at indicting Donald Trump over the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels in October 2016.
But even left-wing anti-Trump New York Times activist Maggie Haberman cast serious doubt on Bragg’s ability to make any charges stick.
Haberman noted the original offense Bragg wants to indict Trump on — falsifying business records — is a misdemeanor.
To bump that up to a felony Bragg is concocting a new interpretation to New York State’s campaign finance laws.
Haberman calling the legal theory “exotic” was code for her admitting the charges are politically motivated and far-fetched.
“Exotic, it’s an exotic case,” Haberman said on CNN.
Haberman then pointed out a judge may not go along with this novel scheme considering it will be the first criminal case against a former president in American history.
“And a judge could decide, no, we’re going to get back to a misdemeanor. That is difficult for a prosecutor when it’s a former president. I understand, you know, justice is supposed to be equal, you know, for all. But, you know, people take into consideration factors like this,” Haberman added.
Haberman also warned that indicting Trump on obviously phony and politically motivated charges would only cause more Republicans to rally to Trump’s side and make him more powerful.
“I think we could see a rallying effect from his supporters. It could be that more people are turned off by this. I just don’t think we know. We know how he will use it, which is that he will say he’s being attacked and victimized. And we have seen that over and over again. We’re going to continue to,” Haberman added.
Finally, Haberman acknowledged the longshot probability of actually obtaining a conviction in this case seeing as the main witness — former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen — pleaded guilty to lying to Congress and would have no credibility on the witness stand.
“Yeah, look, and what I think Michael Cohen would say as a witness, and has said before is that he, you know, he lied on Trump’s behalf. And I think you would hear him say that in this case. You did have Alvin Bragg decide not to bring a prosecution against Trump in connection with his actual business despite proceeding against his business. And they got a conviction across the board in 17 counts in that case, I don’t know. It’s different when you’re prosecuting a faceless company than it is prosecuting a man. I do think it’s worth noting here, putting aside issues of Michael Cohen specifically, or that the prospective thinness of the case, take it all together. It requires 12 people and it just takes one person to have reasonable doubt. And even in pretty progressive Manhattan, I think probably a defense lawyer could find one person. And that’s a risk here,” Haberman concluded.
For six years Democrats and Deep State prosecutors hounded Donald Trump and investigated every aspect of his life.
No investigation produced charges because they were based on lies, hoaxes and conspiracy theories.
And that’s because the only real crime Donald Trump ever committed was stunning the establishment and winning the White House.
