    What would be the positive spin?

      Ideally, there shouldn't be any spin. Long gone are the days when news outlets reported "just the facts".

        I wouldn't want Trump to be indicted just because he is Trump. But I also wouldn't want him to escape indictment just because he is Trump.

          What a surprise, huh?

          Surely this guy is thinking twice. They better stop and think of the cost of such a stunt. It will backfire on them and Trump as usual will walk away looking like .





          Given that he ran on I am going to go looking for something to charge Trump with I am not surprised one bit, intact I believe this is a case of trumped up charges from the prosecutor

              That this looks like such blatant political weaponization of law enforcement, and that it's so blatant it actually looks like the left wants Trump nominated because they perhaps are more afraid of Desantis?

                I think Bad Orange Man played into the hands of Brandon and his weaponized DOJ by *calling* for protests. They'll do another J6 and make sure any protests turn violent, then use that to create policies to their advantage just in time for the elections.

                  I wonder... was Bill Clinton arrested for doing pretty much the same thing while he was IN office?

                    Trust me, the Swamp isn't afraid of DeSantis since he has shown a willingness to accept their money and play by their rules. But all the same, they would much rather see DeSantis play the graceful loser in the mold of John McCain and Mitt Romney than to see Trump win a second term.

                    So, no, this isn't some clever play to make Trump more popular. Rather, it's exactly what it looks like: a political attack on a popular candidate. In the past couple of weeks, there has been buzz among the talking heads suggesting that support for Trump would dry up if he was indicted, which is what they're desperately hoping will happen.

                      No, he lied under oath about what he did with Monica while in office which is what they tried to impeach him for.

                          Never attribute to malice conspiracy what can be explained by stupidity.

                            You do have to assume a level of intelligence among the TDS left for that to be true.

                              Yeah I don't think they would have enough brains to come up with that level of scheming. They truly think they can get Trump convicted of a felony so he can't run for public office. Reminds me of Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner. I bet the arrest warrant says "ACME" at the top.
