Donald Trump Jr., the son of former President Donald Trump, has reacted vehemently to reports that his father will be indicted by a Manhattan grand jury. He referred to the indictment as “communist-level s**t,” claiming that the event would make infamous dictators like Mao, Stalin, and Pol Pot blush due to its flagrant and crazed nature.

Trump Jr. criticized the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, backed by George Soros, for pursuing the indictment against his father. Furthermore, he lambasted the mainstream media for their coverage of the news, dismissing the indictment as lacking a foundation in facts or the law. He insisted that the indictment is purely politically motivated.

The New York Times first reported on the Trump indictment on Thursday, stating:

“In a historic development, a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict former President Donald J. Trump for his role in paying hush money to a porn star. This unprecedented move will significantly impact the 2024 presidential race and mark Trump as the first former president to face criminal charges.

The sealed felony indictment, filed by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, will likely be announced in the coming days. Prosecutors working for District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg will request Mr. Trump’s surrender and arraignment on currently unknown charges. Trump has consistently evaded criminal charges despite persistent scrutiny and repeated investigations, creating an air of legal invincibility that this indictment may now undermine.

This case revolves around a sordid episode predating Trump’s presidency, focusing on a hush money payment that concealed a sex scandal in the final days of the 2016 campaign. Trump has vehemently denied any wrongdoing and accused Bragg, a Democrat, of conducting a politically motivated prosecution. He has also denied any affair with Stormy Daniels, the porn star in question.

Bragg and his legal team will likely negotiate Trump’s surrender, raising the possibility of a former president being photographed and fingerprinted in a New York State courthouse with the Secret Service in attendance.

The prosecution’s key witness is Michael D. Cohen, Trump’s former fixer who paid $130,000 to Daniels for her silence. Cohen claims that Trump directed him to buy Daniels’s silence and that Trump and his family business, the Trump Organization, helped cover up the payments. The company’s internal records falsely identified reimbursements as legal expenses, obscuring the payments’ true purpose.

Though specific charges are unknown, Bragg’s prosecutors have focused on the hush money payment and the false records created by the Trump Organization. Conviction, however, is not guaranteed. Combining a charge related to false records with an election violation involving Daniels’s payment relies on a legal theory untested by judges, meaning the court could dismiss or limit the charges.

Bragg is the first prosecutor to indict Trump, and he will likely become a national figure enduring intense political scrutiny.”
