Mark Levin: Trump is a Choirboy Compared to Democrat Presidents (Video, Highlights)

Posted by FactReal on April 11, 2023

Constitutional lawyer Mark Levin on his Sunday TV show ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ described the Democrats’ dirty money, campaign law violations, persecutions of political rivals, and other shenanigans for which they are never investigated.

Video summary: Democrat Dirty Money (April 9, 2023)

In a true “ripped from the headlines” moment, Mark unleashes a torrent of truth on who the real corrupt politicians are. From FDR to JFK to Clinton and Obama, dirty money has been sliding into the Democrat’s coffers from all around the world. Trump’s “hush money” bs doesn’t hold a candle to the real shenanigans that have sullied the Democrat White House for nearly a century.

Highlights below.

– Los Angeles Times: 1996 Fund-Raising Scandals Bring Stiff Penalty | Archive (Sept. 21, 2002)

The Federal Election Commission disclosed Friday that it has imposed a record-setting $719,000 in fines against participants in the 1996 Democratic Party fund-raising scandals involving contributions from China, Korea and other foreign sources.

The FEC documents describe Democratic fund-raisers who set specific prices for foreign nationals to make illegal campaign contributions in return for meetings with then-President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore. A Democratic finance vice chair, for example, said organizers would have to contribute a total of $100,000 in return for Gore’s appearance at a Buddhist temple in Los Angeles.

Those penalized included the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton-Gore campaign, the Buddhist temple and nearly two dozen people and corporations acting as conduits for illegal contributions. All have agreed to pay, according to the documents.

The total in fines would have been significantly higher except that some of the corporations have folded and others were dummy operations, with no assets, set up as conduits for money from China, Venezuela, Canada and other countries.

– U.S. News: Obama Campaign Fined Big for Hiding Donors, Keeping Illegal Donations | Archive (January 7, 2013)

Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating federal disclosure laws, Politico reports.

An FEC audit of Obama for America’s 2008 records found the committee failed to disclose millions of dollars in contributions and dragged its feet in refunding millions more in excess contributions.

The resulting fine, one of the largest ever handed down by the FEC, is the result of a failure to disclose or improperly disclosing thousands of contributions to Obama for America during the then-senator’s 2008 presidential run, documents show.


In addition to failing to report big donors and excess donations in a timely manner, the Obama campaign incorrectly dated the filings dealing with $85 million in funds, the FEC claims. This

As Democrats are politically targeting former President Donald Trump for allegedly paying hush money during the 2016 presidential election, President Obama’s “illegal foreign influence operation” is flying under the radar.

Earlier this week, actor Leonardo DiCaprio testified in federal court that Malaysian financier Jho Low revealed his plans to donate up to $30 million to help Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.


Low allegedly recruited Prakazrel “Pras” Michel, the founding member of the iconic 1990s hip-hop group The Fugees, to help funnel a large amount of money to Obama’s reelection campaign; however, under U.S. federal election law, foreigners cannot donate to presidential campaigns.

The Federal Election Commission has agreed to a fine of over $100,000 against the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign over an investigation into alleged misreporting of spending related to the now-infamous Steele dossier.

The FEC fined both organizations after a pair of now years-old complaints — one from the Campaign Legal Center and another from the conservative Coolidge Reagan Foundation — alleged that the party and campaign reported payments to the powerhouse Democratic law firm Perkins Coie as legal expenses, when in actuality some of the money was earmarked for “paying Fusion GPS through Perkins Coie to conduct opposition research on Donald Trump,” as the Campaign Legal Center’s original complaint read.

– NY Post: Chinese elite have paid some $31 million to Hunter and the Bidens | Archive (January 27, 2022)

For those wondering why Joe Biden is soft on China, consider this never-before-reported revelation: the Biden family has done five deals in China totaling some $31 million arranged by individuals with direct ties to Chinese intelligence — some reaching the very top of China’s spy agency.

Indeed, every known deal that the Biden family enjoyed with Beijing was reached courtesy of individuals with spy ties. And Joe Biden personally benefitted [benefited] from his family’s foreign deals.

Foreign money flowing into Democrat campaigns, but they are not investigated:
– Foreign money flowing into the Clinton campaign, the Obama campaign.
– Joe Biden who is bought and paid by the Communist Chinese – our #1 enemy.
– And not a single investigation at the local, state or federal level of these Democrats.

Trump came into office as a multi-billionaire. Democrats made money for being in office.
Obama, Al Gore, Biden are now worth tens of millions of dollars although:
– Biden spent his whole life in government.
– Gore spent most of his life in government.
– Obama spent most of his life trying to overthrow the country.

Democrats wanted Trump’s tax returns released.
– Why don’t they ask for the income tax returns of Obama, Gore, Biden?

Trump as president was a choirboy. Democrat presidents used FBI, IRS, CIA to go after political rivals. Dems got away with it.

Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR), Democrat President (1933 – 1945):
From David Burnham’s book: ‘A Law Unto Itself.’
– Roosevelt and officials around him didn’t hesitate to mobilize the IRS in efforts to destroy the careers of individuals they decided were enemies.
– Eleanor Roosevelt prompted treasury secretary Henry Morgenthau to order a tax investigation of a conservative newspaper and one of leading critics of FDR’s administration.
– Roosevelt unleashed the IRS against Andrew Mellon, treasury secretary under the Coolidge administration, and others.

From Mark Levin’s book: ‘Unfreedom of the Press.’
“Probably the single most brazen display of the Roosevelt administration’s willingness to use the tax agency for political purposes,” declares Burnham, “was its attack on Andrew Mellon, the millionaire capitalist who served as the Republican secretary of the treasury from 1921 to 1932…”

– Roosevelt ordered Elmer L. Irey, the first director of the IRS Criminal Investigation Division to go after Mellon for years – criminally and civilly. Mellon was innocent. Mellon was harassed for years.
– “Roosevelt was a driven man. He didn’t hesitate to adopt questionable tactics to maintain his power. Roosevelt had understood that Huey Long represented a general political threat,: Burnham explains.
– Roosevelt unleashed the IRS against Huey Long and all his surrogates. Huey Long was assassinated. That’s what stopped the IRS from taking out Huey Long.
– Roosevelt also helped a loyal congressman Lyndon Jonson [Democrat from Texas.] FDR stepped in and stopped the IRS investigation against Johnson for failing to properly report income from his campaigns. FDR protected Johnson who would go on to be a senator and then president.

John F. Kennedy (JFK), Democrat President (1961 – 1963):
John F. Kennedy’s administration was also notorious for mis-using confidential IRS and FBI information and for targeting Martin Luther King as a spy by the FBI.
– JFK and Robert Kennedy went after groups on the right using the IRS as well.
– JFK’s FBI tracked every move of Martin Luther King and his associates.

Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ), Democrat President (1963 – 1969):
– Lyndon Johnson used the FBI, IRS, and CIA to go after civil rights groups that he didn’t trust.
– LBJ even bugged the phone of his vice president Hubert Humphrey’s phone.

Barack Hussein Obama, Democrat President (2009 – 2017):
– Under Obama: The IRS was used to go after Tea Party organizations that had been very hurtful to him during the 2010 election.
– Under Obama: The FBI was used to spy on the Trump campaign.

Trump was a choirboy – Trump never did this stuff

Democrat Presidents’ Women Scandals
– JFK women: women were brought in and out of Kenndy’s office, an East German spy, a mob boss’ girlfriend, a 16-year-old intern. It’s disgusting.
– LBJ was worse: abuse of women in the oval office.

Trump in context:
Donald J. Tump (DJT), Republican President (2017 – 2021):
– Manhattan [bogus] case
– Georgia phone call. Trump said ‘find me the votes’ was perfectly legal. [Trump did not say “manufacture me some votes”
– Mar-O-Lago classified documents: Trump did not sell them, didn’t give them away. They were in Mar-O-Lago under the protection of the Secret Service.
– Jan 6th: Outrageous attempt to tie Trump to the violence on January 6, 2021 and to preventing the transfer of one government to the next.

Dinesh to GOP: Indict Democrats for their Law Violations. Adopt Manhattan DA’s Playbook. (Video, Transcript)

Posted by FactReal on April 11, 2023

Author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza analyzed the illogic of Trump’s indictment by Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg. Dinesh also talked about the Democrats’ violation of campaign finance laws and called Republicans to action. For District Attorneys “in Republican states to start indicting prominent leftist and prominent Democrats…take a page out of the playbook of Alvin Bragg.” urged Dinesh.

Video summary: IT’S OUR TURN Dinesh D’Souza Podcast Ep552 (April 5, 2023)

In this episode, Dinesh reviews the indictment and shows why it is one absurdity on top of another. Dinesh recalls how Hillary violated campaign finance laws on a truly serious matter. Dinesh argues that it’s now the turn of Republican district attorneys to indict some prominent Democrats.

Rush transcript below.

RUSH TRANSCRIPT [Emphasis added]

[2:16] DINESH: The 34 felonies are not really 34 felonies. In fact, they’re not felonies. I don’t think at all as I’ll explain but they are 34 business entries. And the business entries are so routine as to be almost comical. Apparently, these are communications and payments from Michael Cohen, not from Tump, but from Michael Cohen to Stephanie Clifford (also known as Stormy Daniels).

This is literally the kind of stuff you have:
– Counts 1 – 4: February 14, 2017
– Counts 5 – 7: March 17, 2017
– Count 8: April 13 to June 19, 2017

Apparently, Michael Cohen was making these payments one by one. Month here, a month there with a couple months in between and each of these is now elevated to a felony count. It’s the same thing over and over, the same payment.

It’s almost like if Michael Cohen had written one check and written $130,000, there’d be only one count in the felony.


[3:58] You’re trying to lock up for years – not only the guy who was formerly in the White House but the leading candidate of the opposition party.


[4:42] The first point I want to make is the copy and paste nature of the indictment.


[4:54] What is the underlying crime to which the indictment makes repeated references?

Turns out the indictment keeps talking about the fact that there’s an underlying crime but it never says what that crime is. So, there is a kind of garbled quality to all these. People are saying, “Well, you keep copying and pasting the same thing over and over. Every business transaction is treated as a sort of separate felony. But a felony – what is the nature of the felony?

Is it that Trump had an illegal liaison with Stormy Daniels? Is that the crime? Seemingly not.
Is it the fact that Trump did a hush money payoff? That’s not even the crime alleged in the indictment. So, if it is not illegal to have done this. If it’s not illegal to have done the payoff, is it alleged that Trump took campaign finance money and used it to pay Stormy Daniels when that was not allowed under campaign finance law? That’s not in the indictment either. So, it’s none of the above, so what really is the violation?


[6:16] …I want to lay out what is his [Bragg’s] theory of the case. What is he trying to say? So, what basically he is trying to say is that Trump violated something called New York’s False Records Law. So what’s the false records law? It’s a law that basically says that if you’re operating a business, you can’t keep false records, you can’t keep false books. Now, obviously, by and large, the law is aimed at discouraging people from keeping wrong books because you don’t want to hide – because of the tax implications. So you might think that Trump here is accused of not paying his taxes or accused of cooking the books for tax purposes.

[6:52] In fact, the indictment goes to Trump overpaid his taxes. He paid more than he should have but he kept false records supposedly to hide this hush money payout. And the problem for Bragg on that theory is that – even if this is true, even if Trump kept false records and you’d have to prove that he intentionally did that, he’s the one who directed it even though he was President at the time. So, as President – these are payments by the way that go back to 2017 – it’s as if Trump was keeping the books of his own company. No, he had delegated the running of his company to others. Then even if he kept false records, keeping false records according to New York law – look it up – is a misdemeanor. It’s not a felony.


[7:38] …Alvin Bragg tries to take misdemeanors or 34 misdemeanors and somehow conjure them into 34 felonies.


[9:14] Where do you get the felony? The felony is you have to attach this violation to another law that Trump supposedly violated that is a felony and here Bragg is taking refuge in Trump’s supposedly violating a federal crime which is federal campaign finance laws.

Now, that is not specifically said in the indictment. In fact, Bragg says, “I don’t have to mention what the federal crime is. I’m not required to do that.”

And yet how do you get from a misdemeanor to a felony unless you alleged a felony crime? Well, it’d be a felony crime to violate the campaign finance laws but Trump is not accused of that. He certainly hasn’t been convicted of that. People who looked into it at the federal level decided this is something that’s even not worth going after.

And so here you begin to see the problems that are faced by Bragg. Bragg has to convince New York courts to let the prosecution go forward. The New York courts – and, you know – I’m not saying I know the outcome at the local level – you could have an extremely left-wing judge, an extremely left-wing jury but Trump is certainly going to appeal. He’s going to appeal to a higher court.


[10:29] Does Trump have a chance to go to the U.S. Supreme Court or is he stuck in the NY courts because the NY supreme court is Democratic leaning, leans to the left. If that’s all Trump could appeal to, then he might be stuck.

But that is not all that Trump can appeal to. He could very well get a reversal in the New York courts themselves. But even if he doesn’t get a reversal in the New York courts, because the way to get to a felony is to allege a federal crime, Trump can go to the Supreme Court and say that this is a federal matter. It certainly affects a man, Trump, who is running for federal office which is to say president of the United States and there is a rule in the Supreme Court jurisprudence, it’s called the Rule of Lenity, Rule of Lenity. (…)

[Rule of Lenity: “When a law is unclear or ambiguous, the court…”]

It means that if you have a law – in this case we are talking about a New York state law– that doesn’t make it really clear that if you do this, you’re committing a felony. Then the law is meaningless and can’t be enforced as a felony because no person who read the law would know we’re talking about a felony. So since the New York law talks about the false records as being a misdemeanor and nowhere suggests that you’re facing felony charges because of it, this creative legal theory of taking these misdemeanors and kind of — you can say – hitching them to – or bootstrapping them onto a federal law and claiming that taken together these misdemeanors have now been elevated into felonies. No one reading it, no common person reading this, would get that out of the law. It doesn’t even say that and so the Supreme Court could on that basis alone, say, “Listen, this is nonsense.”

And the Supreme Court has already proclaimed that the Rule of Lenity is a valid law and the only question is would the court A) take the case and B) apply the law in this way.

I think if you are talking about Trump being disqualified somehow from running for the presidency or Trump being incarcerated, the Supreme Court would have to take it up. There’s no way the Supreme Court could let it be in and say we’re just going to pass on this one. The implications are too severe.


[13:03] You’ve had massive campaign finance violations by Hillary [Clinton]. She used campaign finance money to pay for the Steele dossier and then her campaign tried to hide that fact by paying the money to a law firm and then listing it merely as legal expenses. And she got a modest fine, $113,000, I believe. End of the matter.

[13:23] Obama got huge donations from large donors and tried to hide them by camouflaging them as small donors. He was hit with a campaign finance violation.

By the way, these are very serious violations. They exceed my violation by a factor of a 100 or a 1,000 or 10,000. And yet again, the Obama people settled this quietly with the fine. End of matter. So, this is the point. When the left goes and we hear Never-Trumpers go, “Everyone is accountable under the law.” You got to explain why the law is being used in this discretionary, selective and highly ideologically motivated way. That’s the heart of the matter. That’s what I was up against and that’s what Trump is up against now.

[15:06] As I mentioned, the heart of Bragg’s case is to take the violation or the alleged violation of New York’s False Record Act, which is in and of itself a misdemeanor and hitch it to a not-mentioned federal felony violation, which is a violation of the campaign finance laws.

Let’s look at the two parts of this for a second.

The first one: the false record part of it. Turns out – if you read the False Records Act – it has a statute of limitations and the statute of limitation is very clear: 5 years. Now, let’s do the math.

When was Trump’s final payment to Cohen? These are the payments to Cohen that are supposedly the reimbursement. Trump listed these payments as just legal fees to Cohen but Braggs says, “No, no, these aren’t really legal fees. He didn’t provide any services for these fees. These were reimbursements.” But the last payment was in December 2017 and that is more than 5 years ago. 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and here we are in [2023.] So right away, the law even if it was violated – let’s remember, violated as a misdemeanor – the law is now inoperative. The date is passed. If you wanted to bring this case, you should have brought it and you could have brought it before, but you chose not to. Too bad for you.

[16:43] So New York courts are themselves in an awkward position. They will have to somehow contend that this five-year statute of limitations are somehow not operative, because Trump has – What? He left the state. He’s living in Washington, D.C. He is president at the time. He is doing other things. And somehow the law can still be applied. So that’s the first problem. It’s a very pretty serious problem.

[17:09] There is a second problem and that is that: Where is the campaign finance law violation in the first place? In order to hitch your misdemeanors to a federal crime, well, you gotta have a federal crime and you have to have a crime that is at least – even if the crime wasn’t prosecuted and wasn’t convicted – you have to have committed it. So the question is where has Trump committed that crime? If the payments were not a federal crime then Trump can’t be charged with a felony version of the New York law and the case against him completely collapses. In fact it must be – it must be dismissed.

[17:51] So this is a reckless act by a completely out of control – I would argue – vicious but also extremely dumb New York prosecutor, Alvin Bragg.

[18:09] Yesterday, I saw a lot of comments to the effect that this is really puzzling. Why would Bragg accede to something that’s so foolish. Isn’t Bragg supposed to be a smart guy? Didn’t he go to Harvard? Didn’t he go to Harvard Law? Let me say right away. Going to Harvard, at least in the last 30 years, is basically meaningless.


[19:14] …Bragg would have somehow felt that he is making a move here to gain – to curry favor with the left. Remember, a couple of his prosecutors had resigned because he had looked at this case and said there’s not a whole there. So it could be Bragg that feared that he would face serious opposition from the left. Maybe a challenge from the left at some point. And so this is a – in that sense a purely political case. In other words, Bragg from a legal point-of-view goes, “I kind of know there’s not a whole lot of there, there, but I’m gonna push ahead with it anyway.” Why? Let’s look at the timing of it. This is something that Trump brought up and I hadn’t thought until I heard it from Trump’s mouth speaking from Mar-A-Lago.


[20:07] Trump made the point. He goes, “These guys want to stretch out this trial and have it when? Very conveniently in January of 2024. Aha! It happens to be a presidential year. It happens to be, what, a month or a month and a half before the Republicans primaries. So quite clearly, this is a carefully calibrated action that, although it’s a legal action, is a legal action aimed at disqualifying Trump from the – even if Trump were to appeal and win that itself would take time. So you might have a guy, Bragg, may go, “I can get a New York conviction and that’s all that matters. It doesn’t matter if I’m overturned on appeal, because I might be able to get Trump out of the running.” So this is the kind of games that the left likes to play, the kind of evil and vicious games.


What we can do to fight back:

[22:10] DINESH: It is time, it is beyond time, for Republicans to start doing to Democrats what Democrats are quite obviously and brazenly doing to Republicans. And what this means I think is it is crucial now for DAs in Republican states to start indicting prominent leftist and prominent Democrats. I say this without – realizing that this is not always an easy thing to do. It provokes resistance from leftists at the bar. They try to go after you, disbar you, file complaints against you. They’ve been doing this against Trump lawyers, for example, and harassing them, making their lives miserable. And so there might be – Republicans tend to be a little scared, and a little bit diffident, a little bit shy. Or in the past they’ve had the view, “That’s not our job, Dinesh, you know. We don’t want to turn our office into a weapon of political prosecution.” Well, guess what? Alvin Bragg is doing that and what is the best way – the only way to deter the left from doing what it’s doing? Well, it is to show them a taste of their own treatment. I’m applying here the bully principle, the only way to stop a bully – a bully who enjoys beating up smaller kids – is for a bunch of the smaller kids to get together and go, “You know what? Let’s ambush this guy in a dark alley. We’ll teach him a lesson and then the next time he’s going to be more reluctant to bully us in the playground.”

[23:41] Where do we go with this? Where do we start? Who do we go after? Well, the obvious candidates are, of course, Biden. There’s wide circles of corruption with Biden and all you have to do is link it to something that’s happening in your state. And there you go. You’ve got a case. Bring an indictment. Bring indictments against Mayorkas at the border there’s no reason you can’t – the Texas Attorney General can’t find a reason to indict Mayorkas. Now again, this will run into legal obstacles, it’s going to be challenged, it’s gonna be fought over. But that’s okay. The indictment still – it drags out. This is what the left has taught us. Drag it out, make sure that the guy is brought in, make sure that he’s arrested, make sure that he’s fingerprinted, make sure that the cause of action is under state law even if it s hitched to some kind of federal offense.

[24:34] Bill and Hillary Clinton should be both indicted for their crimes under the Clinton Foundation. Think of it: stealing money from Haiti, collecting money and offering basically U.S. foreign policy in return. There are all kinds of violations. Again, you need to be a legal guy to be able to go through this stuff, go through the business records. Normally, we don’t even take the trouble to look. It takes investigative reporters like Peter Schweitzer to put this stuff out. Well, you know what, they’ve done it. So now, the DAs can take the lead, take the information available and pursue it further, pursue discovery, get more information. So go after Bill, go after Hillary, go after Joe Biden, go after members of the Biden family. It’s not limited to Joe. This is a family-style mafia. They split the proceeds. Indict them all. And don’t stop there. There’s plenty more targets here. And again – there’s in fact a luxury of targets. You ‘re almost at a kind of legal shooting range. You’ve got a lot of different options.

Rosie O’Donnell has violated the campaign finance law on at least 5 separate occasions. I don’t know if the statute of limitations has passed but even if it has, you could find some reason to revive it. Maybe Rosie moved to a different state. Do exactly – again, take a page out of the playbook of Alvin Bragg.

[25:56] What about [George] Soros. Here’s a guy who is a Nazi collaborator. In his teen years he accompanied this guy who’s confiscating Jewish art and Jewish money and Jewish furniture. And he claims this was a formative influence and in a way kind of it has been because this guy has been a worldwide menace ever since. He’s caused crime and mayhem not just in the United States but around the world. There should be 40 different ways that this guy can be indicted. Why hasn’t somebody already indicted him?

[26:23] And then, of course, there are the 51 intelligence officers who interfered in the 2020 election. They all lied and said that they were convinced that this Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation. What was this but election interference trying to get Joe Biden across the finish line? They probably knew – all of them – that this was real. Their idea, “That’s okay . We’ll find out after the election once Biden is already in there. Let’s keep the American people from knowing about this and if they do know about it, we will be on hand to lie about it and convince them that it’s something other than it is.” All these guys are crooks. All these guys are really traitors. All these guys need to be indicted.

So my message to the GOP is time to get up. It’s time to move into action. It’s time to indict.

NY Judge Warned Both Sides Not to Incite Violence, Trump Lawyer Says (Video: 4/4/2023)

Posted by FactReal on April 5, 2023

During former President Trump’s arraignment yesterday, New York judge Juan Merchan advised both sides (not just Trump) against inflaming the passions that could incite violence, Trump lawyer Joe Tacopina said to FNC’s Bret Baier. The judge did not impose a gag order on former President Trump, contrary to what many expected/wished.

Video via Fox News: (Video mark 3:25)

RUSH TRANSCRIPT [Emphasis added]

We had some reporting that the judge or prosecutors were concerned about some of the social media posts that the former president has made around this case and that the judge read them from the prosecutors and that he essentially warned, if he saw more of this, he could reconsider instituting a gag order. Is that accurate?


He didn’t warn him. He was actually very respectful to President Trump. He didn’t warn him. He advised both sides, he said, against inflaming the passions any more than they have to be or doing something that could incite crowd riots or violence. He said that in a very sort of boilerplate way to sort of address everyone. He didn’t warn the president. He didn’t say, “I’m going to impose a gag order.” He didn’t say anything like that. He just said, “Please don’t do that.” Not to the president, by the way, but to both sides. If it continues to happen there will be further discussions about it. It was really left unsaid. And, look, I don’t anticipate there being any problems going forward.”

They are concerned about Trump’s speech but not about Democrats’ behavior
The insinuation is that violence comes from Trump (and his supporters) and not from leftists.

VIDEO: Clueless Anti-Trump Protestors at Manhattan Arraignment (4/4/2023)

Posted by FactReal on April 5, 2023

Video shows how clueless leftists are about the case of Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg against former President Trump. But that didn’t stop them from showing up at the New York City courthouse to celebrate Trump’s arraignment yesterday:

FNC’s Jesse Watters sent a reporter to interview the anti-Trump protestors:

Q: What crime did Trump commit?
A: We don’t know.
A: He paid someone hush money.
Q: What law did that break?
A: Em, em…

Q: Do you like Alvin Bragg?
A: I don’t even know who he is.

Q: Who is the victim in this crime?
A: Come on, dude.

Leftists don’t care about the facts

Paying “hush money” is legal:

[H]ush-money is a pejorative term…NDAs [Non-Disclosure Agreements] per se are perfectly legal and common in civil-law settlements of claims.

[T]hey use the phrase “hush money” because they want to create implications of criminality. […] A lot of people who leave their jobs have to sign non-disclosure agreements in order to get severance payments.

Trump Indictment is One Single Charge Divided into 34 Counts
Hillary Clinton was Fined but Trump Indicted for Misreporting Spending
Experts: Leaker of Trump’s Indictment Committed a Felony

They want to punish Trump for the many bad things they believe he has done!
Byron York explains their thinking:

[I]n some liberal circles, the idea of holding Trump “accountable” has taken on the general meaning of punishing Trump for the many bad things liberals believe he has done. It does not have to involve a specific charge or punishment for a specific act — it’s the larger issue of holding Trump “accountable” that is important.”

“In the end,for Bragg and the Democratic officials who have pressed the Trump indictment, and for the supporters who have cheered them on, it’s not really about the question of whether Trump committed the misdemeanor offense of falsifying business records and whether that misdemeanor can be properly increased to a felony by alleging some other illegal act. It’s about holding Trump “accountable” and thus satisfying many Democrats’ pent-up demand for “accountability” for the former president. That’s why the Manhattan indictment is more of a campaign promise fulfilled than a legal case.”

Ted Cruz: Trump Indictment “Marks a moment in the Death of the Rule of Law”

Posted by FactReal on March 31, 2023

Senator Ted Cruz reacted yesterday after Trump’s indictment by Democrats: [Links added]

TED CRUZ: Today marks a moment in the death of the Rule of Law. This indictment is utter garbage. It is baseless. It is frivolous. It has no legal predicate. It is entirely a partisan attack. This is a left-wing, Democrat D.A. elected with over $1 million from George Soros who came into office filled with hatred for Donald Trump and he decided to use the power of his office to indict Donald Trump.

Ted Cruz said this to Ben Ferguson who was filling in for Mark Levin.

Posted by FactReal on March 31, 2023

Mark Levin reacted yesterday after Trump’s indictment by Democrats.

Mark Levin Show via YouTube:
– “As a nation we’ve now turned the corner into a hard tyranny”
– Trump “indicted really over absolute nonsense.”
– “We’ve now crossed the Rubicon into Tyranny.”
– “The Democrat Party is the party of Totalitarianism.”
– “America has gone tyrannical and the Democrat Party has dragged us there.”
– “This is aimed at you. This is an attempt to interfere in the Republican nominating process, the primary process. It’s an attempt by the Democrats to win a second term by handicapping Trump who’s the leading Republican right now.”
– They have now “set the precedent that you can go ahead and indict a Republican candidate who’s leading in the polls for president of the United States
