Yesterday the news broke that the Scottish courts approved a money laundering probe into Donald Trump’s golf properties. The news also broke that federal prosecutors have reportedly decided to criminally indict Matt Gaetz, and are pressuring him to flip on others. Then last night the courts ruled that Dominion’s civil suit against Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Mike Lindell could move ahead.
Of course this came even as Donald Trump was releasing new inflammatory statements about January 6th, Matt Gaetz was bragging about upcoming rallies, and Mike Lindell was holding a “symposium” about supposed election fraud. These folks really don’t know when to quit while they’re behind. But then that’s the point, isn’t it? With Trump no longer in office, he’s no longer in position to protect himself or his goon squad. They’re all in the process of being dismantled, even as they continue to do the only things they know how to do, even knowing it’s not working for them anymore.
The news will keep getting uglier. Yesterday former U.S. Attorney BJay Pak testified to Congress about Trump’s illegal election tampering, the third highly credible witness to do so in the past week, after Jeffrey Rosen and Richard Donoghue. No amount of rhetoric or rallies on the part of Team Trump is going to stop the legal process from moving forward against them. It’s been a bad week for Trump and his people. It’s only going to get worse for them.
