BREAKING: Trump's Been Indicted In Docs Case


Finally. Finally. The Malignant Loser announced on his failing social media site that he's been indicted by a Federal grand jury for his mishandling of classified documents. The indictment was filed in Federal court in Miami, FL. The specific charges are unknown at this time. From the New York Times:

"The Justice Department took the legally and politically momentous step of lodging federal criminal charges against former President Donald J. Trump, multiple people familiar with the matter said on Thursday, following a lengthy investigation of his handling of classified documents that he took with him upon leaving office and then obstructing the government’s efforts to reclaim them.

The indictment, filed in Federal District Court in Miami, is the first time in American history a former president has faced federal charges. It puts the nation in an extraordinary position, given Mr. Trump’s status not only as a onetime chief executive but also as the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination to face President Biden, whose administration will now be seeking to convict his potential rival."

The Washington Post adds further details on the blockbuster legal action:

"Several Trump advisers confirmed the charges. Trump said he has been summoned to appear in federal court in Miami on Tuesday at 3 p.m. A seven-count indictment has been filed in federal court naming the former president as a criminal defendant, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a case that has yet to be unsealed."  (our emphasis)

There will be more details divulged in the hours ahead. Stay tuned.
