Democrats in Washington’s establishment were shocked by President Donald Trump’s victory in 2016.
It came after they thought they had sealed his loss with the now-debunked Steele dossier and Russia collusion claims, which they amped up after he was in office.
Then they tried opposing his every move, even strategic decisions to protect the national security on the southern border.
Then they tried an impeach-and-remove strategy.
Then they did it again.
All unsuccessful, which means that as a one-term president, Trump is eligible to run again in 2024 if he so chooses. He promised when he left the White House he’d return in “some form.”
Voters got a hint about that just this week when Trump said, in an interview with Dan Bongino, that news on that front is coming soon and will make people very happy.
But that’s probably the worst news in the world for Democrats, who were accused by Trump attorney Bruce Castor of orchestrating their opposition to Trump because they fear that he will win re-election, and become the second president in history to return to the White House after leaving.
A Newsweek article explained Castor believes Democrats “fear” Trump. He told members of Congress they were meeting for their second impeachment campaign because “the majority in the House of Representatives does not want to face Donald Trump as a political rival in the future.”
He suggested that the Democrats’ “fear” is because they believe voters in 2024 “will want to change and go back to Donald Trump.”
After all, polls still show that Trump is the single most influential person in the GOP even today. And almost 75 million voted for him just months ago.
That all casts into doubt the actual impetus behind the present strategy by Democrat prosecutors in New York, to investigate and possibly charge Trump over his long-past business activities.
MSN reported Manhattan’s district attorney, a Democrat who long has opposed President Trump, has convened the grand jury that apparently will review evidence regarding the former president.
The report, however, didn’t even mention the possible charges until far down, and they apparently could involve claims of manipulation of a real estate portfolio that impacted decisions by banks and insurance companies.
“The move indicates that District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr.’s investigation of the former president and his business has reached an advanced stage after more than two years. It suggests, too, that Vance thinks he has found evidence of a crime — if not by Trump, by someone potentially close to him or by his company,” the report said.
Trump called the move “purely political.”
“Our country is broken, our elections are rigged, corrupt, and stolen, our prosecutors are politicized, and I will just have to keep on fighting like I have been for the last five years!” he said, referencing other failed Democrat schemes that have been launched against him.
Even the report admitted, “It is also unclear when or even whether the grand jury will be asked to consider returning any indictments.”
The allegations that may be reviewed apparently stem from Michael Cohen, a longtime Trump lawyer who “turned on Trump after pleading guilty to making hush-money payoffs on Trump’s behalf and lying to Congress,” the report said.
During the campaigns against Trump, several Democrats conceded those costly and time-consumer efforts were launched mainly because they feared what he could do if he eventually returned to the White House, for which he is eligible.
In a report in Big League Politics, it said “government officials” who are close to President Biden and his family “are plotting ways to charge Donald Trump with crimes before he can run for the presidency again in 2024.”
