Democrats, especially those still stricken with extreme cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome, are firing up what appears to be yet another attempt to hamstring the former president on an old case that was already settled.
According to the Washington Examiner, it appears that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office is working on moving toward an indictment against the former president concerning alleged payments made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels.
William “Widge” Devaney, former assistant U.S. attorney in the District of New Jersey told the Examinr that what’s playing out right now in Bragg’s corner is typically the moves made before an indictment is issued against someone.
In this case, it would be President Trump, who has been vocal on the issue on his Truth Social platform in recent days.
What’s going on?
Devaney explained why he believes Bragg’s present course of action is signaling a pending Trump indictment.
“I don’t think Alvin Bragg would have picked up this investigation unless he intended to move toward an indictment. My sense of kind of why he might be taking these steps at this point in time is that perhaps he’s feeling a little lift under his wings,” Devaney said.
He added: “It sort of seems like this is the time when the various legal issues with respect to the former president are congealing.”
“In this circumstance, I don’t think Alvin Bragg would have convened the grand jury without the intent to move toward an indictment with Trump,” he continued.
🚨 GRAND JURY – TRUMP
Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg reportedly presented info about the Stormy Daniel’s ‘hush money’ with the National Enquirer as the broker for the deal.

Devaney implied that he believes the only reason it hasn’t happened yet is due to the long list of legal issues facing the former president.
False business records?
According to Devaney, he believes the indictment will center around false business records, or something similar, regarding payments allegedly made to Daniels during the 2016 campaign.
“I think this will impact Trump directly. It appears to me that the criminal case that they’re building in the grand jury is related to false business records around the payment to Stormy Daniels. And the most obvious false business record would be taking something that was booked as a payment to Michael Cohen when in reality, it was actually hush money for Stormy Daniels,” Devaney said.
The Examiner noted: “Prosecutors are particularly keen on whether Trump or his business empire falsified records around the payments.”
Only time will tell if Bragg gets his dream indictment, but one thing is for sure, Trump’s record against this continuous witch hunt is flawless, and will probably continue to be after this.
