Trump Trial Fallout: Political Ramifications and Future Prospects

Yes, the trial was rigged.

Additionally, the judge illicitly donated to the Biden campaign and an anti-Trump PAC, and his daughter raised $93 million from her father’s trial for the Democrats. This was clearly a political maneuver rather than a genuine judicial proceeding. A dark day indeed. (For my eyewitness account of the trial, see my day in court with the President).

On the other hand, several conclusions are also clear that bode well for the President, his supporters, and all Patriots.

After the verdict was reached, the Trump website crashed within minutes and remained down for hours. Why? Was it hacked? Hardly. It crashed due to the overwhelming number of Americans who have had enough and wanted to donate to the President’s re-election campaign.

It is likely that in those few hours, the total amount garnered will exceed his previous record of $54 million raised in one day. Strikingly, as you can see on my X feed, there are countless Democrats who publicly stated that they too have donated to the Republican candidate and have decided to vote for President Trump on November 5th.

At the moment, the President remains a free man who left the courtroom in his armored Secret Service SUV and motorcade. He slept in his own bed last night and will remain free until his sentencing, which will occur, of course, just four days before the Republican Convention. Politics again.

But whatever Juan Merchan doles out at sentencing matters not in any Constitutional sense. The Democrat Party may be fueled by hatred and well-organized, but they seem not to have done their homework.

So, the President is politically rich and more powerful than he has ever been since he came down the escalator in Trump Tower all those years ago. If the election were today, and if we were to have a free and fair election, he would win. But five months is a long time in politics and we must take nothing for granted.

These are the obvious consequences of what happened yesterday, but that misses the real historic consequence of what we witnessed less than 24 hours ago. Yesterday isn’t about one man, one party, or even one election. It’s about the very fabric of our system, the compact of the people and their political elite, judiciary, and organs of state.

Yes, the President will appeal the decision, but appeals are designed to correct mistakes. Yesterday was no mistake. It was deliberate in every minute detail. The system was deliberately perverted. As a result, America was changed.

In the meantime, when it comes to President Trump, the real verdict will come on November 5th.
