BREAKING NEWS: TRUMP INDICTED!

BREAKING NEWS: TRUMP INDICTED!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has been looking into hush money payments for years.

And now, former president Donald Trump has been indicted.

The accusations are related to the $130,000 hush money payment that adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, received from then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen in the run-up to the 2016 election in exchange for her silence regarding an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

Although Cohen named Trump in his plea agreement, federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York decided not to charge him with the Stormy Daniels payment in 2019. In 2021, the Federal Election Commission abandoned its inquiry into the situation.

One of the top prosecutors who resigned in protest claimed that when Bragg took over as district attorney in January 2022, he ceased pursuing charges against Trump and terminated the probe “indefinitely.”

Once Bragg started expressing uncertainty about bringing a case against Trump, prosecutors Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne, overseeing the investigation under former DA Cyrus Vance, offered their resignations.

Earlier this month, Trump highlighted stories that claimed he might be detained on Tuesday, March 21, and that they were based on what he called “illegal leaks.”

The House Judiciary Committee intervened when Trump wrote about those stories on his Personal Account, requesting that Bragg appears before the committee.

Republicans in the legislature and Trump allies denounced the inquiry as a political prosecution and a “weaponization” of the district attorney’s office.

This Monday, citing the former president’s Facebook Social post, Bragg charged that Trump “raised a false expectation” that his arrest was imminent. He also criticized the committee for conducting an “unusual inquiry into a pending local prosecution.”

Bragg’s letter to the committee stated, “The Letter only arrived after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be detained the next day, and his lawyers reportedly requested you to intervene. “Neither fact is a valid justification for a congressional investigation,”

The grand jury heard testimony from Robert Costello, a former legal counsel for Michael Cohen, last Monday. Costello described Cohen as a “serial liar” and said Trump was unaware of the payments Cohen made to Daniels.

But, on Wednesday and Thursday, Bragg called off grand jury hearings connected to the Trump investigation.

There was “significant dissent,” according to sources who spoke to Fox News Digital at the time, within the district attorney’s office. According to one source, the case’s ” weakness ” makes it difficult for the district attorney to persuade the grand jury to bring charges.

After pleading guilty to federal counts of tax evasion, lying to Congress, and campaign finance violations, Cohen received a three-year jail term in 2018.

To stop Daniels and model Karen McDougal from disclosing their alleged romances with Trump—which Trump has continuously denied—Cohen admitted to arranging payments to them.

Trump has consistently denied involvement in the payments and claimed that Cohen directed them.

McDougal received $150,000 from the owner of the supermarket tabloid, the National Enquirer. At the same time, Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 via his own business and requested reimbursement from Trump’s organization, which recorded the payments as “legal expenses.”

Federal prosecutors who brought the 2018 criminal accusations against Cohen for the payments claim that the Trump Organization “grossed up” Cohen’s reimbursement for Daniels’ payment for “tax purposes.”

Trump has consistently insisted that there was no impropriety to the payments to Stormy Daniels and that they were a “simple private transaction” rather than a “campaign violation.”

The payments were first made public in a Wall Street Journal report from January 2018 that claimed Cohen and Daniels’ attorney had signed a nondisclosure agreement to keep her from disclosing the alleged sexual encounter with Trump in the media.

However, Cohen, Trump, and even Stormy Daniels disputed the arrangement at the time.

Cohen claimed in January 2018 that the rumor about the supposed meeting between Daniels and Trump had been going around “since 2011.”

However, Daniels refuted the claims in a letter dated January 10, 2018, which Fox News was able to obtain and review.

In a statement, Daniels said, “I am announcing with total clarity that this is false. I recently became aware that certain news outlets are alleging that I had a sexual and/or romantic affair with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago. My interactions with Donald Trump were strictly restricted to a few public appearances.”

Trump was “gracious, professional, and a complete gentleman to me and EVERYONE in my presence,” according to Daniels in the letter she wrote after meeting him.

The letter stated, “Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are entirely incorrect. The truth is, these rumors are untrue. “If truly I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn’t be reading about it in the headlines, you would be reading about it in my book.”

Yet, Daniels revised her Account in March 2018. Daniels asserted she had an unprotected sexual encounter with Trump once during an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes.”

The charges against the former president come after the Federal Election Commission dropped its case on the same issue in 2021 after it “failed by a vote of 2-2 to…find reason to believe that Donald J. Trump knowingly and willfully violated” federal election law with the $130,000 payment made to Stormy Daniels.

The Trump Organization and its chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg were charged with tax fraud due to the probe last year.

Weisselberg was charged with receiving almost $1.7 million in unreported remuneration, including rent for an apartment, car payments, and tuition.

Weisselberg, whose testimony helped convict the Trump Organization of tax fraud last year, was sentenced to five months in jail and five years of probation in January after entering a guilty plea.

The accusations against Trump coincide with a different probe by a special counsel investigating his alleged unlawful storage of secret documents from his time as president at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

In an unusual action in August of last year, the FBI searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home as part of a probe into secret documents the former president is said to have taken from the White House.

The Justice Department’s investigation into the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, and that investigation were later given to special counsel Jack Smith by Attorney General Merrick Garland.

They were both looking into whether President Trump or other individuals or organizations interfered with the orderly transition of power following the 2020 presidential election, including the certification of the Electoral College vote on January 6, 2021.

Former Vice President Pence also kept confidential data at his home—an issue that the Justice Department is investigating—and President Biden is under special counsel investigation for his suspected inappropriate retention of sensitive records from the Obama administration.

The charges against Trump also come as New York Attorney General Letitia James keeps up her multi-year civil investigation into the Trump Organization to determine whether Trump and his business improperly overstated the value of assets on financial statements to obtain loans and tax advantages.

SICK: Migrant Invader Filmed His Rape of 13-Year-Old Girl

juarez-mexico-11152022-venezuelan-migrants-cross

The appalling case of Christian Inga, a 25-year-old migrant from Ecuador accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at knifepoint in broad daylight in Queens, New York, lays bare the catastrophic consequences of President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies. Prosecutors allege that Inga even filmed the attack, adding an unimaginable level of horror to this already heinous crime.

Inga, who has been arrested and charged by the NYPD with numerous offenses including rape, sexual abuse, robbery, kidnapping, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, and unlawful imprisonment, approached two 13-year-olds near Kissena Park in East Flushing, Queens. When the children initially refused his demand to follow him into a wooded area, he brandished a machete, forcing them into compliance.

Once in the woods, Inga allegedly tied up the children and proceeded to rape the 13-year-old girl, admitting to filming the brutal attack. The New York Post reports:

“The Ecuadorian migrant charged with raping a 13-year-old girl he bound and gagged in a Queens park told cops he recorded the attack during a sickening taped confession, prosecutors alleged Wednesday.”

This chilling admission during a hushed court hearing has sent shockwaves through the community. Inga first crossed the United States-Mexico border with his three-year-old son in June 2021 near Eagle Pass, Texas. Despite being ordered deported by a federal immigration judge in February 2022, he was released into the U.S. interior with a Notice to Appear (NTA), showcasing the glaring failures of the Biden administration’s immigration enforcement.

Inga’s criminal record extends beyond this appalling incident. He has had three summonses in the past — for having an open container in December 2022, jumping a subway turnstile in March 2023, and trespassing in May 2023. Additionally, NYPD officers were called to break up a fight at a residence in Queens in January, resulting in a domestic violence report, although he was not arrested.

This is just the latest incident of horrific, sickening crime committed by one of Biden’s illegal migrant invaders. The blame for this crime can be laid squarely at the feet of the Biden Administration and their lax policies at our Southern border, where known violent criminals arrive by the thousands every day.

California Senate Allows Schools to Trans Kids Without Informing Parents

sacramento-caus-june-10-2018-unidentified

The California Senate’s recent approval of a bill that would bar school districts from informing parents if their child decides to go by a new pronoun at school is a brazen and outrageous assault on parental rights and family integrity. This shocking legislation strips parents of their fundamental right to be involved in their children’s lives, placing the state in a position of unwarranted authority over deeply personal family matters.

This bill is a blatant and egregious attempt to undermine parental authority. It forbids school districts from enforcing policies that require teachers to disclose a student’s gender identity or sexual orientation to their parents without the child’s consent. Proponents of this bill claim it is necessary to protect students who might face hostility at home. However, this sweeping, one-size-fits-all policy fails to recognize the critical role that parents play in guiding, nurturing, and supporting their children through complex and challenging issues.

More disturbingly, this bill opens the door for schools to covertly influence or even convert children’s gender identities under the radar and without parental knowledge. It grants schools unchecked power to make life-altering decisions about children’s gender identities, effectively sidelining parents and keeping them in the dark about significant changes in their child’s life.

Greg Burt, vice president of the California Family Council, forcefully criticized the bill’s flawed assumption that parents are inherently unsafe. “You don’t assume that all parents are unsafe,” Burt declared. “That shouldn’t be the assumption.” His stance resonates with countless parents who believe they have an inherent right and responsibility to know what is happening in their children’s lives, particularly if their children begin identifying as “trans” or experiencing gender dysphoria.

This bill, now advancing to the state Assembly, represents a profound overreach by the state into family matters. Attorney General Rob Bonta’s lawsuit against the Chino Valley Unified School District for its parental notification policy further illustrates the radical lengths to which state officials will go to keep parents in the dark. This aggressive legal stance is an affront to every parent who values transparency and their critical role in their child’s upbringing.

The potential passage of this bill would be a disaster for parental rights and family cohesion. It sets a dangerous precedent, effectively telling parents they cannot be trusted with information about their own children. This is a gross overstep by the government and a betrayal of the trust and authority parents rightfully hold.

The fight to uphold parental rights is far from over. Advocates for transparency and parental involvement must continue to push back against this overreaching legislation. Parents deserve to be informed and involved in all aspects of their children’s lives. Anything less is an unacceptable infringement on their rights and a disservice to the children who depend on them. This bill must be stopped to protect the sanctity of the family and ensure that parents retain their rightful place in their children’s lives. Schools should not be allowed to covertly influence or change children’s gender identities without the knowledge and involvement of their parents. This covert manipulation is an affront to family values and the sacred bond between parent and child.

Illegals, Non-Citizens Voting in American Elections

female-voter-bulletin-hands-comes-voting

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is sounding the alarm on the scandalous reality of non-citizens voting in American elections. Appearing on Breitbart News Daily, he tore into the deeply troubling issue, calling for urgent action through the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act to restore the integrity of the U.S. electoral system.

Roy didn’t mince words. He exposed the shocking evidence of non-citizens voting, whether they are here legally or illegally. Studies have shown that such illegal voting has potentially swayed elections, like the highly controversial election of Al Franken in Minnesota. Just last year, Virginia had to purge 1,500 registered voters who had no right to vote. This isn’t an isolated problem; it’s a widespread epidemic infecting cities like Oakland, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and New York City. These jurisdictions are recklessly registering non-citizens for local and state elections, creating a dangerous loophole that could easily allow them to vote in federal elections.

Roy lambasted the federal laws that cripple states’ abilities to verify citizenship, forcing states like Arizona to juggle two separate election systems. This bureaucratic nightmare is an affront to every American voter who expects and deserves a fair and legal election process.

The Motor Voter Act of the 1990s, Roy argued, has only worsened the situation by making it nearly impossible for states to ensure that only citizens are voting. The federal forms may ask individuals to declare their citizenship, but there is no real enforcement or verification, leaving the door wide open for fraud and abuse.

The SAVE Act is Roy’s proposed solution, demanding proof of citizenship for anyone registering to vote. He acknowledged the unique challenges of states like North Dakota, which do not have voter registration, but insisted that the bill is adaptable to different state needs while maintaining its core mission: protecting the vote of American citizens.

Roy made it clear that this is not a partisan issue; it’s a matter of national security and democratic integrity. He cited a recent vote in Washington, DC, where 52 Democrats supported ending the registration of non-citizens for elections, showcasing the broad support for this critical issue. However, he also highlighted the fierce opposition from many Democrats who refuse to ensure that congressional seats and allocations are based on citizenship.

In a powerful conclusion, Roy condemned the Biden administration for flooding the country with millions of non-citizens, exacerbating the crisis. He called for immediate action to stop the outrageous betrayal of American voters and protect the democratic process from being hijacked by those who have no right to participate in it.

This is not just a policy debate; it’s a battle for the very soul of American democracy. The time to act is now, before the right to vote is further eroded by the influx of non-citizens and the reckless policies enabling them.
