I Believe "They" All Fear Trump [View all]

Trump is a mob boss with an army of enforcers, nothing to be scoffed at.

Make Trump angry and death threats are sure to follow.

Trump cannot defend his crimes in a courtroom, he doesn't have the evidence or facts, so he is doing a different kind of defense, intimidation.

Trump wants judges to fear him (a 5,000 dollar fine is laughable) wants Attorney Generals to fear him, wants prosecutors to fear him, wants Supreme Court justices to fear him. (His claim of divine right of a king should have been immediately not accepted by the court) not rejected, not accepted, Trump wants witnesses to fear him, they too get death threats, Trump wants the jury to fear him, more death threats.

Oh and his best defense is delay. The DC Appeals court will make a ruling by mid January on Trump's divine right claim, and then it goes to the Supreme Court, unless Trump appeals to the entire Appeals court, if not, the Supreme Court should immediately reject hearing the appeal, but it won't, it will take its time to rule on the Divinity of Trump.

Numerous people have taken on "the Don," E. Jean Carroll, a 5 year struggle, Letitia James, a 4-5 year struggle, Fani Willis, since March of 2021, Jack Smith., and judge Chutkan, all very brave people.

Trump has been treated with kid gloves his entire life, will those gloves ever come off?

If Trump is convicted, polls say, he loses the election.

Time Matters.
