There have been numerous signs this week that Jack Smith’s criminal indictment of Donald Trump for January 6th may be imminent. Smith’s grand jury has reportedly met at least twice this week, seemingly without hearing from any witnesses. And now the news broke today that Jared Kushner testified against Trump to the grand jury a month ago.
Now Trump is talking on his social media site like he expects to be imminently indicted again: “I never thought I would say that, as the leading political opponent of Crooked Joe Biden, getting Indicted and Arrested by sick government “Thugs” would be my great honor. I am doing it for our Country, to show how evil and sinister a place it has become.”
Did the DOJ just inform Trump that he’s being indicted again? Or is Trump simply reading the tea leaves after seeing the news break that his own family member has already testified against him? In any case, you only publicly declare that some punishment would be a “great honor” if you’ve given up any hope that you might avoid that punishment. Trump either expects, or knows, that he’s about to be indicted by Jack Smith again at any moment.
