Former president Donald Trump took to his Truth Social account to announce (in all caps) that he received a letter from the Justice Department informing him that he is a target of the long-running investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Trump then accused Special Counsel Jack Smith of being “deranged” and labeled Attorney General Merrick Garland’s actions as “unethical,” claiming “Nothing like this has ever happened in our Country before, or even close.” Rolling Stone reports the Special Counsel’s letter to Donald Trump related to Jan. 6 listed the federal statutes under which Trump is expected to be charged, including conspiracy, obstruction, and civil rights violations. The letter mentions three federal statutes: Conspiracy to commit an offense or to defraud the United States; deprivation of rights under color of law; and tampering with a witness, victim, or informant.

Wow, all I can say is this Donald Trump fellow just keeps on “winning!” Or was that “keeps on whining?” That said, I do have to agree with him on one thing - that “Nothing like this has ever happened to our country before.” I’d say, “Barbarians at the gate,” but, of course, the Barbarians were much more civilized than these MAGAs. I mean, if this keeps up, the RNC may have to revise their rules to permit candidates with dozens of felonies pending to still be allowed to run for president.

Now, I could be wrong, but it appears like it may be finally dawning on the Orange Mussolini that he may be in some very serious legal jeopardy, and he seems a little stressed. Perhaps some chamomile tea might help? Mark my words - one of these days - we’ll turn on the news and hear something like, “Breaking news; White Bronco leaving Mar-a-Lago.” Fat man walking? I often wonder if he ever wishes he could just go back to the good old days of conning banks to get bogus loans.

Of course, Republicans are calling “foul play” and claiming Democrats are just charging Trump with multiple felonies because they know these charges will strengthen his appeal with primary voters, which will allow him to win the Republican primary - but will ultimately badly weaken him and the GOP during the general election. Really? Because if that’s the case, how about just not voting for someone under criminal indictment during the primaries? Just a thought.

The funny thing is, isn’t it interesting how Trump only questions the DOJ’s motives? He never really addresses the actual charges of which he has been accused. Why, its almost as if he’s not being completely forthright about everything. Then, in pure Trump fashion, he uses the entire situation to once again do more fundraising. Well, no surprise there. After all, the Trump motto has always been, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what your country can do for me.”
