The Manhattan DA’s statement of facts in People of New York v. Donald Trump begins:
1. The defendant DONALD J. TRUMP repeatedly and fraudulently falsified New York business records to conceal criminal conduct that hid damaging information from the voting public during the 2016 presidential election.
2. From August 2015 to December 2017, the Defendant orchestrated a scheme with others to influence the 2016 presidential election by identifying and purchasing negative information about him to suppress its publication and benefit the Defendant’s electoral prospects. In order to execute the unlawful scheme, the participants violated election laws and made and caused false entries in the business records of various entities in New York. The participants also took steps that mischaracterized, for tax purposes, the true nature of the payments made in furtherance of the scheme.
Which, of course, is just the DA’a highly prejudiced personal opinion and another totally baseless, partisan witch hunt (like Mueller, the Rusher Thing, The Perfect Call to Ukraine Thing, The So-called “fake” electors thing, The Perfect Call to Georgia Thing, the Legitimate Political Discourse Thing, The Illegal Deep State Raid on Mar-A-Lago Thing), and, obviously, persecuted Defendant would have paid off the porn star he’d had a sexually explicit moment with ten years earlier even if he wasn’t running for president. Then, this total LIE:
19. The Defendant directed Lawyer A to delay making a payment to Woman 2 as long as possible. He instructed Lawyer A that if they could delay the payment until after the election, they could avoid paying altogether, because at that point it would not matter if the story became public. As reflected in emails and text messages between and among Lawyer A, Lawyer B, and the AMI Editor-in-Chief, Lawyer A attempted to delay making payment as long as possible.
20. Ultimately, with pressure mounting and the election approaching, the Defendant agreed to the payoff and directed Lawyer A to proceed.
It’s a quick read, and to me, a breath of fresh air after years of accelerating highly gaseous gaslighting. You can see the “racist, degenerate, sick animal” DA’s entire statement of so-called facts here:
