Trump indicted on 7 criminal charges

“Trump indicted”.

It is with a great deal of pleasure I type those words.

I have been watching Trump and the question of his being brought to justice for alleged crimes since he lost the Presidential election to Joe Biden. There was a fear for quite some time that for political reasons he would not be asked to account for his actions on the basis that any criminal charges may lead to unrest in the US political system amongst Trump’s loyal base.

But his activities and words have been so manifestly inappropriate, and arguable criminal, that he left the Department of Justice little option but to prosecute. Not to do so would have undermined the system of law and justice in the United States of America.

I now look forward to more indictments, perhaps from Georgia and New York.

And, in due course, the best outcome of all will be convictions and jail time.

But the justice system demands that a person is innocent in the eyes of the law until proven guilty. Let’s wait and see.
