Trumpty Dumpty had a fantastic fall
And gained’t be again to end his wall.
All MAGA’s horses and all MAGA’s males,
Can’t put Trumpty Dumpty again collectively once more.
Granted, it’s not straightforward to observe all the varied investigations, grand juries, search warrants, subpoenas, and witness testimony as a number of Congressional committees and state and federal regulation enforcement companies attempt to observe down all the many legal guidelines, guidelines and ethics violations Trump and his crime household have bent, damaged or ignored over so a few years.
In reality, his oft-used lie that these investigations are a “witch hunt” has taken on a brand new which means. Given the huge spectrum of his on-going issues, it’s now a “which hunt”— as in “which hunt are you speaking about?” And certainly, there are a lot from which to selected.
Not to be left behind, the Manhattan district lawyer’s workplace can also be conducting a legal probe. And Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney is investigating whether or not Trump’s efforts to “discover votes” amounted to “solicitation of election fraud.”
In the meantime, his former chief authorized counsel, Pat Cipollone, has been served a subpoena by the Department of Justice’s federal grand jury investigating Trump’s tried January 6 revolt. This follows the testimony from former vice-president Mike Pence’s chief of workers. You know, the similar Mike Pence Trump’s supporters wished to dangle as a result of he wouldn’t defy the Constitution to derail the election outcomes and maintain the former man in energy.
Topping off Trump’s very dangerous week was the execution of an FBI search warrant on Mar-a-Lago to get better packing containers of delicate paperwork Trump illegally faraway from the White House in violation of the Presidential Records Act. Ironically, he now could face felony fees contained in the measure he signed into regulation as revenge towards Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal e mail server whereas Secretary of State.
While Trump does his common “ship me your cash” act, the “Great Grifter” has left the Republican Party in an actual bind. Those who got here out to prematurely denounce the FBI’s actions now seem foolishly duped by “Don the Con” as soon as once more.
The factor is, in actual life spurious fiction falls earlier than towering reality. And possibly, simply possibly, it’s time for the GOP to simply let Trumpty Dumpty take the nice fall he so richly deserves.
