The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is a tool of the Democrat machine. The office is out to destroy Republicans, especially Donald Trump and his family.
There are no valid charges against Trump and his daughter, Ivanka. But prosecutors do not need valid charges. The way they proceed (see Paul Craig Roberts, The Tyranny of Good Intentions, 2000) is to overwhelm a third party with false charges until the third party agrees to lie in order to incriminate the real target in exchange for dropped charges. This is the way many federal convictions are obtained.
Vanity Fair, a Trump-hating publication, is delighted to regale its Trump-hating readers with a description of how the Manhattan District Attorney’s office has concocted “a slew of criminal charges, including conspiracy, grand larceny, and multiple counts of tax fraud and falsifying records” against Allen Weisselberg, chief financial officer of the Trump business organization.
