The Big Guy has NEVER had much worries about the law, which he seems to think is something that is just a nonsense…
As a businessman he operated below the radar….
That went out the window when he got the job as President…
True to his persona….
He has attacked the prosecutor’s and judges (the Government) that have attempted to apply the law and its consequence’s to his legalities…
Trump IS trying to use the media noise to attack the state and federal legal actions against him…..
House Republican’s, who where hiding for their lives on Jan. 6, are now helping Trump fight their government’s attempt hold him accountable for misdeeds….
Trump HAS made it clear that the he WILL go after those who are going after him….
He’s already tried to put two FBI bosses in jail …..
Even in the absence so far of any charges against Mr. Trump, political polarization runs so deep, and mistrust of federal law enforcement is so ingrained on the right, that efforts by Mr. Garland and others to offer assurances that justice is being dispensed without regard to politics are often drowned out by powerful counterforces. Among the strongest of those forces are allies of Mr. Trump who have sought to undercut the legitimacy of the Justice Department in general and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in particular.
The Justice Department “has been a remarkable backstop,” said Lindsay M. Chervinsky, a presidential historian and senior fellow at the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University. “But the department is being given a role that it was never really designed to have — defending American democracy.”
In some ways, the confluence of Trump-focused inquiries is putting the criminal justice system through a public stress test unlike any in American history.
Multiple Trump investigations are marching toward decision points — and potential indictments — starting with the inquiry by the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, into hush-money payments to a porn actress.
In Georgia, a local prosecutor is moving toward a decision about charges related to efforts by Mr. Trump and his allies to overturn Mr. Trump’s 2020 election loss in that state….
For months, Justice Department officials have been bracing for an all-out attack from the Republican-controlled House, which has launched investigations into what it calls the “weaponization” of the department against the right.
Mr. Trump set a more menacing tone shortly after the Mar-a-Lago search last year, when he told a rally in Pennsylvania that “the F.B.I. and the Justice Department have become vicious monsters.”
Officials expect the reaction to any indictment of Mr. Trump by a grand jury in New York on the hush-money payments to be swift and ferocious — a preview of the bigger reaction expected if federal prosecutors indict Mr. Trump….
…Trump’s first campaign was one like no other, a campaign that defied history and conventions. The 2024 campaign shapes up as another like no other, but this time because he is simultaneously dealing with serious legal issues while waging a fight for his party’s nomination and the possibility of a rematch with Biden in the fall of 2024.
A Republican who supports him said that, under these circumstances, there is only one political strategy for Trump: attack, attack, attack. The former president will continue to try to turn every legal investigation into a political fight, as he has done since he became president. He will play victim and demand that his party defend him against the Democrats, the legal system, the left and the media.
The short-term benefits were on display this past week. But is that enough to convince Republicans that he should carry their banner into the general election in 2024?….
