According to the reports Donald Trump is facing 34 felony charges for falsifying business records related to hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. However, sources reveal that the former president will not have to take a mugshot, wear handcuffs, or be put in a jail cell before he is taken to New York City for arraignment. Trump has taken to Truth Social to accuse Mr. Bragg of illegally leaking details of the indictment against him, which he describes as “pathetic.”
This is the first time in American history that a current or former president is facing criminal charges. The indictment, filed under seal, will be announced in the coming days, and the charges are not yet publicly known. The two-time impeached president is expected to appear in court today. This decision is likely to send shockwaves throughout the country, as the American political system has never seen an ex-leader confronted with criminal charges, let alone while running again for president.
In response to the indictment, Trump has released a statement claiming that it is “Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history.” He believes that the “Witch-Hunt” will backfire massively on Joe Biden and that the American people are aware of what the Radical Left Democrats are doing. He asserts that his Movement and Party, united and strong, will first defeat Alvin Bragg and then Joe Biden.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg the first black man elected as the New York County District Attorney has made history by bringing criminal charges against a former American president, Donald Trump. His office has been investigating Trump’s case related to a $130,000 payment made by Trump’s then-personal attorney Michael Cohen to Stormy Daniels in 2016, allegedly in exchange for her silence over an affair with Trump. Bragg’s office has convened a grand jury to evaluate evidence in the case. Trump vehemently denies wrongdoing and has taken to his own social media platform to express his views. Bragg, a veteran prosecutor who took office at the start of 2022, has also focused on prosecutorial reform and has experience with prosecutions at every level of government.
Some other politicians face investigations including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Hillary was not indicted but faced several FBI investigations while serving as Secretary of State used a private email server located in her home to conduct both personal and work-related email correspondence. She did not use a government-owned email account, which could have been subject to federal record-keeping requirements. This became a matter of public scrutiny and concern when it was reported by the New York Times in March 2015, as it raised questions about the security and legality of her email practices. Hillary is one of the possible candidates for the 2024 election campaign.
Elon Musk’s Tweet When Donald Trump Indicted
On 18 March Elon Musk tweeted “If this happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory.”
Elon Musk, the CEO of several companies, including Tesla, claimed that if former President Donald Trump is indicted, he will win 2024 the presidential election in a landslide victory. Musk’s statement was in response to a tweet that claimed Trump could be arrested this week.
Musk and Trump have had a contentious relationship in the past, and Musk has previously expressed support for conservative candidates in the 2022 midterm elections.
However, it is unclear why Musk would make such a statement about Trump’s potential election victory.
It is also important to note that Trump’s support had hovered around 30% of Americans since the events of January 6, 2021, when his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of the 2020 presidential election. Trump has been attempting to rally his supporters against any potential prosecution, claiming it is politically motivated.
Now some questions are raised regarding this. Would this indictment disqualify Trump from running for the 2024 Presidential Campaign?
While there is no constitutional provision that would automatically disqualify former President Trump from running for president or assuming office if he were to be indicted and convicted of a crime, there are potential legal and political implications that could arise. According to the U.S. Constitution, nothing would change.
The Trump indictment, regardless of what happens, probably isn’t going to slow him down and his agenda.
