‘Witch Hunt Bullshit': GOP Lawmakers Quickly Side With Trump on Indictment
REUTERS/Go NakamuraWithin minutes of the news that former President Donald Trump had been indicted on Thursday, his GOP lackeys on Capitol Hill were immediately peddling Trump's talking points against the case.

They're calling it a "witch hunt" and "political prosecution" to take Trump down amid his 2024 presidential bid. And they're promising action—using buzzwords like "weaponization," in an apparent echo of the House GOP's efforts to investigate the "weaponization" of the federal government this Congress.

"The Regime occupying our country and systematically killing America is most afraid of President Donald J. Trump. Period. He's our guy," Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) posted alongside a photo of Trump staring deeply into the camera.

Glenn Beck Hyperventilates About the End of America After Trump Indictment
Fox NewsThe indictment Thursday of former President Donald Trump over a 2016 hush money payment led to plenty of more-unhinged-than-usual opinions on Fox News, perhaps none more outlandish than those shared by former network host Glenn Beck.

During an interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Beck depicted the Manhattan grand jury's vote to indict Trump as a foreboding indicator that the United States is "no longer viewed as a superpower"—and more specifically a sign that Democrats want to see violence from Trump's supporters as a pretext to somehow strip them of their rights.

"What this is all about, I believe, is trying to inflame this country. They've wanted violence from the right from the beginning. They can't wait [for] it. They need it. Because if we strike out—look at January 6!" Beck said. He then for some reason called attention to the fact that "QAnon Shaman" Jacob Chansley, one of the Capitol rioters who had been imprisoned for his role in the Jan. 6 insurrection, was moved into a halfway house this week.

NY DA Alvin Bragg's Trump Prosecution Is Built on a Couple of Risky Witnesses
Photo Illustration by Kelly Caminero / The Daily Beast / Reuters — Gaelen Morse/ReutersManhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's indictment of former President Donald Trump secures Bragg a place in history as the first prosecutor to ever charge a former President of the United States. But whether Bragg will go down in history as a footnote or pioneer will be determined solely by whether he secures a conviction—and the path to conviction is a challenging one legally.

Bragg is a surprising come-from-behind winner in the field of potential prosecutors who might charge Trump. Fulton County (Georgia) District Attorney Fanni Willis appeared to be closest to indictment and, in the view of many legal commentators, myself included, seemed to have the strongest cases. Certainly, she has had more time to work up her case than has Bragg, which is part of the concern over Bragg's sudden prosecutorial boldness.

Recall that Bragg punted on a fully matured three-year long criminal investigation into Trump's financial crimes, which his predecessor Cyrus Vance had fought up to the U.S. Supreme Court twice on the issue of seeking Trump's tax records from Mazars accounting firm. Bragg's decision so angered the lead prosecutors on the case that

Enraged Fox News Host Warns After Trump Indictment: ‘People Better Be Careful'
Fox NewsOn the heels of the historic indictment of former President Donald Trump on Thursday, an enraged Fox News host Jesse Watters went on a rant seemingly warning of impending political violence.

The Fox host branded the indictment, which was announced during the latter half of The Five broadcast, "the stupidest thing I've ever seen" and a "disgrace" before seemingly threatening future violence.

"There's going to be a major ‘rally around the flag' feeling. I'm starting to feel it right now. I'm angry about it. I don't like it. This county is not going to stand for it," Watters warned. "And people better be careful. And that's all I'll say about that."

Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida is off to Israel next month having voiced no concern about a three-fold increase in antisemitic incidents during his time in office.

DeSantis last visited Israel in 2019, shortly after he was first elected. He prayed at the Wailing Wall and signed a bill in Jerusalem outlawing antisemitism in Florida's public schools. The wife of now-deceased GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson introduced DeSantis at an event there just as he likes to imagine himself.
