Louis Gurvich Chimes In On Trump Indictment
Last week, I wrote an article on the expected indictment of President Trump.
When nothing more happened for several days, it seemed at least possible that common sense had prevailed and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had withdrawn from the brink of opening another major front in the nation’s culture war, and severely damaging our legal system in the bargain.
Of course, I had neglected to account for the zeal and ruthlessness of the far left progressive corps of D. A.’s foisted upon us by Mr. Soros’ and his vast piles of money. The Manhattan D. A.’s office is Mr. Soros’ prize capture; Mr. Bragg is his prize pupil, and thanks to these men our nation may never be the same.
The fact is that the whole point of the far left’s on-going seizure of our legal system is not justice, but rather the weaponization of the legal system in the cause of Marxist progressivism. And if America’s system of justice must be sacrificed on the altar of progressivism, that will simply be an added bonus to adherents of the far left as they further undermine our faith in our core values in their attempt to remake America into a Marxist “paradise.”
As proof of my contention, I will again remind our readers that Mr. Bragg’s predecessor in the Manhattan D. A.’s office looked at the case and refused to prosecute President Trump, as did the U. S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. In fact, Mr. Bragg himself reviewed the case soon after he took office in early 2022, and declined to prosecute at that time. Were it not for Mr. Bragg’s progressive ideology and his apparently limitless political ambitions, he would not have dared to prosecute this case in a million years.
And how else can anyone explain how an impartial system of justice could possibly prosecute a former president of the United States for a crime which began as hush money payments to a prostitute (President Trump has consistently denied that any such “fling” took place), and ended up as a violation of federal election law which is not even prosecutable by the Manhattan D. A.’s office? Even the New York Times admits that Mr. Bragg’s prosecution “hinges on an untested and therefore risky legal theory involving a complex interplay of laws, all amounting to a low level felony.”
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton remains uncharged for her massive violations of national security law (remember the ‘home brew’ basement server) which compromised our nation’s vital secrets at the very highest level, and for paying millions of dollars to foreign agents to fake the entire Russian collusion conspiracy. Nor has Joe Biden or any of his family of co-conspirators been charged for a single one of their influence peddling schemes despite their decades-long run of criminal activity which has been widely acknowledged in Washington circles since the 1990’s.
Both Clinton and Biden should by now have served several years of their long sentences in a medium security federal penitentiary, but our legal system has chosen to charge Donald Trump for what at worst would be a minor crime. Other democracies are looking at the United States in wonderment and dismay that the greatest country on Earth may soon descend into unmanageable chaos, while our enemies relish every moment of the spectacle and plan to take further advantage thereof.
Can there be any doubt that Vladimir Putin would never have invaded the Ukraine were it not for our cultural and political divide, our election of a corrupt and doddering left-wing partisan as President of the United States, and our hasty retreat from Afghanistan? Can anyone doubt that our national malaise is in large part to blame for what could soon become the really big war over Taiwan? And now the situation is about to become much worse as we ready ourselves for the years’ long trial which will likely affect our upcoming presidential election. If you thought the election of 2020 was bad, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
