Democrats have been scrutinizing Trump’s tax records for years. Well, the saga continues. There are now reports that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., a Democrat, will be issuing changes both against the Trump Organization as a whole and against its CFO Allen Weisselberg.
According to the Associated Press, sources say that the charges will have to do with “non-monetary benefits the company gave to top executives.”
War By Other Means
The first thing to understand about these reportedly pending charges is that none of them are directed at Donald Trump himself. That’s pretty remarkable considering how desperately and thoroughly the left has searched for excuses to destroy him.
Former Trump advisor Jason Miller mocked these charges on Twitter, saying that the Democrats “told their crazies and their supplicants in the mainstream media that this was about President Trump. Instead, their Witch Hunt is persecuting an 80-year-old man for maybe taking free parking!”
Trump attorney Ron Fischetti said to the New York Daily News that if these charges are issued, the Trump Organization will plead not guilty and will then file a motion to dismiss the indictment. “In my more than 50 years of practice, never before have I seen the District Attorney’s Office target a company over employee compensation or fringe benefits,” he said.
To give you some idea of the blatant vindictiveness of this case, remember that not even the large financial institutions that caused the 2008 financial crisis were ever brought up on charges like this.
Law is being used as a means of warfare. Even if the Trump Organization goes to court and is acquitted of all charges, it will spend enormous amounts of money on legal fees. Thus, it will be drained financially. And that is the Democrats’ goal: If they can’t throw Trump into jail, they will try to bankrupt him.
