Start at the 2 minute mark.


Also rumor is he's going to Walter Reed Hospital.

For TSwizzle. Daily Mail

The Daily Mail said:
'It looks like he was arrested but without the cuffs. Where did he spend the night?' former federal prosecutor Richard Signorelli wrote on Twitter Monday morning.

'I can't think of another better explanation other than perhaps a semi-medical emergency. Time will very soon tell.'

DailyMail.com has reached out to Trump's spokesperson for comment.

I mean, it's fun to think he jetted off to DC to surrender, but that's not really his style, to put it mildly. A medical problem seems like a good guess, since he enjoys the "best" things and he certainly had the best medical care while sick with Covid and terminal hamberder addiction while President. He's got to be under an enormous amount of stress, and there's only so much a person of his age can sustain.

Stress from what? The guy obviously doesn't think and function like normal people. I don't think he has a worry in the world. He's been able to do whatever he wants and simply cheats and litigates his way around. He never worked a day in his life. He's a bum who happens to have money.

He says he's working at his golf club today. He said it by a Truth so you know it's true.

Trump has normalized lying and deceit so much, he could very well be working in DC at his place just for the heck of it... and we still think he is lying.

I take his increasingly shrill and unhinged proclamations as evidence that he really is being affected by all of this. He's well known for his temper, but this goes beyond that. He's not only raging (in public and private), but is pushing away almost everyone around him to the point where the only people left on his side are his damaged children and a cadre of third rate attorneys/people who are trying to make a buck. The walls are closing in, and he's losing it. I bet if he got into a room with an honest doctor, they'd come up with a list of medications he needs to be taking, and behaviors he needs to change or else. Despite what the former White House doctor said, he's not an invincible paragon of health. He's an old man with bad habits and anger management problems. I wouldn't be surprised if one of those hangers-on/grifters around him got him to go to Walter Reed if for no other reason than they saw their paycheck sweating and gasping for breath.

That's all pretty accurate. But the biggest problem he has is that he's just not bright which means he can't compete with peers, which means he has to cheat, bully, grift and spend daddy's money to get his way anyway he can. There are moments when I actually feel sympathy for the guy, understand where he's coming from in this big bad world because it ain't easy. The guy is intellectually handicapped, there's no doubt about it. Does he know it? Does it matter? His M.O. is to tear people down or use them to enhance his image and toss them aside. He really is a bum with money and has obvious mental, psychological barriers. Of course he's got lots of company on that score. I'd like to see him change for the better but I think that ship has sailed. He could be incredibly productive in an influential sense if his brain worked for the better, his followers adore him, but I'm not holding my breath.

I was just listening to MSNBC. The DOJ has just issued at least 40 known new subpeonas and seized phones from several Trump aides. Not the January 6 Committee, but the DOJ. Things be getting serious.

There have been reports that all this mess he's gotten himself into has had a great effect on him, making him quite nervous for his future.

I asked when he was running why someone with so many skeletons in his closet would try to the get most scrutinized job on the planet. I didn't expect he would turn that closet into a warehouse chock full of skeletons.

I was just watching MSNBC. Rachel Maddow interviewed Jeffery Berman. Berman was fired by William Barr for politicl reasos. To politicizr DOJ. He has written a new book "Holding The Line" detailing all of this skullduggery. The Senate Judiciary Committee has just announced they want an official investigation Barr's actions jn kiling investigations, and trying to start witch hunt investigations against Trump's detractors. A new big set of trouble for Trump. And Barr. And Barr's henchmen and accomplices.

Looks like the DOJ really, really wants to respect the unwritten "hands off 60 days from an election" window, but be ready to spring into action the day after it.

Of course, it would have been nice if James Comey hadn't effectively torpedoed then-candidate Hillary Clinton out of the fucking water SIX days before an election, but, whatever.

One of the myriad frustrating things about Trump and his idiot cultists is the constant drumbeat of "Unfair! Unfair!" regarding his "treatment"--by the media, by government officials, by historians, by talk-show hosts, everybody NOT wearing one of his dumbass red hats, basically-- while he has been given exponentially more breaks than anyone else in the country could have ever hoped for, and more. ANY American other than Trump would already be in jail, several times over, period.

Yet this clown is constantly crying "No fair."

Former President Donald Trump on Monday took time off from melting down over the FBI executing a search warrant at his home to seize classified documents to demand that he be installed as commander-in-chief of the United States—22 months after he decisively lost the 2020 race.

The twice-impeached ex-president, though, did propose a “minimal solution” if he is not returned to the White House right away: Declare the 2020 vote “irreparably compromised” and hold a new one “immediately.”
Delusional.
More like nuckin' futs.

Did you expect evil people to not hear all the things said about them which caused people to oppose them, and then not say those things to cause the people who opposed the evil folks when they heard so to make them oppose the people who properly identify the evil bastards?

Of course they're going to say those things and because they can't say them accurately, they just repeat it more and say it more loudly.

Then when the error is pointed out as loudly...

The January 6 Committee is reportedly now being flooded with tips and more inforamtion about the insurrection and related issues. People are losing fear of Trump. Or are fearing him and wanting to see him neuteralized.

Jean Carroll hase been suing Trump for libel. But now Trump is being essentially sued for rape.

"Roberta A. Kaplan, the journalist’s lawyer, explained in her letter to the judge that Carroll is now preparing to file a separate lawsuit under New York’s Adult Survivors Act 'on the earliest possible date,' which is Nov. 24," said the report. "Kaplan also explained that Trump—as he has done in nearly every court case of late—is refusing to turn over court-mandated evidence. Trump 'remains unwilling to produce any documents in discovery,' not 'a single document,' Kaplan wrote. "

Donald Trump, 3 of his children sued for business fraud by New York AG

NEW YORK — New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit Wednesday accusing former president Donald Trump, three of his grown children and executives at his company of flagrantly manipulating property valuations to deceive lenders, insurance brokers and tax authorities into giving them better rates on bank loans and insurance policies and to reduce their tax liability.


The 222-page civil complaint asks the New York Supreme Court to bar Trump, as well as Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump, from serving as executives at any company in New York, and to bar the Trump Organization from acquiring any commercial real estate or receiving loans from any New York-registered financial institution for five years.
It seeks to recover more than $250 million in what James’s office says are ill-gotten gains received through the alleged deceptive practices. While the lawsuit itself is not a criminal prosecution, James (D) said she has referred possible violations of federal law to the Justice Department and the IRS.

I watched her speech. Maybe it will give Trump a stroke. Supposedly it's much easier to win a civil lawsuit compared to a criminal charge. I guess that's why she's doing this. It's about time that somebody charged him with something, even if it's just a civil lawsuit. The news just said that this civil lawsuit, if won, might lead to a criminal charge. Hoping. Hoping.

A stroke? While he can shake down a Sheik for 8x the amount James is asking for, just for saying “I don’t think he [MBS] did it”? And that’s the best case, if they ever get to squeeze a dime out of that turnip. No biggie.

Pleading the fifth is admissible in civil lawsuits.

But, there is overwhelming evidence, via documentation that took a long time to acquire, that he's committed financial fraud for over 10 years. He can plead the 5th all he wants. I doubt that will matter, considering the evidence. You know. Things like greatly exaggerating the sq. ft. of Trump Tower, when he wanted to refinance it....Stuff like that. He took a lot of big banks for a ride, and I'm pretty sure some who have been screwed by him, just might be willing to testify. Of course, on the other hand, I've not known anyone who has gotten away with all of the crimes that he has. Just think. If he hadn't become president, he would never have been investigated for his many crimes. He's just such a sick narcissist that he will do anything to get more attention. It's what he's live for and I will admit, he's a master at manipulating easily led people.

I mentioned the stroke possibility because he certainly has many risk factors for one, and that would at least get him off of the stage and leave us with the evil Desatan, aka Desantis, who I'm pretty sure is the new, maybe bigger version of Trump. We have a long way to go if we want to try and restore our fragile democracy, which keeps getting more cracks in its foundation.

Former President Donald Trump was warned by former White House attorney Eric Herschmann about the legal peril of keeping classified documents last year, according to three sources in a new report from New York Times correspondent and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman.

This is pretty damning. Trump was warned early on his refusal to hand over secret documents was illegal by his own legal council. And in any future trial, this will be a set of key facts as too Trump's state of mind. The laws did not apply to Donald J. Trump. I suspect his lawyers are not going to take the fall for Trump.

Trump Is Sued for Fraud By New York State A.G. Letitia James - The New York Times
Attorney General Letitia James of New York filed a sweeping lawsuit on Wednesday that accused Donald J. Trump, his family business and three of his children of lying to lenders and insurers by fraudulently overvaluing his assets by billions of dollars.

Ms. James is seeking to bar the Trumps, including Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka, from ever running a business in the state again.
It's a civil case, but she's recommended that Federal prosecutors consider criminal charges.
The 220-page lawsuit, filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, lays out in new and startling detail how Mr. Trump’s annual financial statements were a compendium of lies, according to Ms. James. The statements — yearly records that include the company’s estimated value of its holdings and debts — wildly inflated the worth of nearly every one of its marquee properties, according to the lawsuit. They include Mar-a-Lago in Florida, Trump Tower and 40 Wall Street in Manhattan.

The company also routinely spurned the assessments of outside experts. After a bank ordered an appraisal that found 40 Wall Street was worth $200 million, the Trumps promptly valued it at well over twice that amount. Overall, the lawsuit said that 11 of Mr. Trump’s annual financial statements included more than 200 false and misleading asset valuations.

“The number of grossly inflated asset values is staggering, affecting most if not all of the real estate holdings in any given year,” according to the lawsuit. Ms. James, a Democrat who is running for re-election, filed the lawsuit just weeks after the former president refused to answer hundreds of questions under oath in an interview with her office.
Read Letitia James’s Lawsuit Against Donald Trump - The New York Times

Trump tweeted (truthed?) in Truth Social that this was “Another Witch Hunt by a racist Attorney General, Letitia James,” and that “she is a fraud who campaigned on a “get Trump” platform.”

You can take the 5th but in a civil matter the jury is directed to consider that in the worst light. "Did you rape that woman?" "I take the fifth". The jury is directed to assume you did rape that woman.

Raw Story is reporting that Rachel Maddow has reported there is now a Grand Jury issuing subpoenas over the organizing of Trump's ellipse rally pre-January 6. That right winged extremist groups were planning an attack on the Congressional building to stop certification of the election is known. Now the question would be who planned this, executed the plan, and who in the government knew of all of this.

A secret Grand Jury has subpeoned a number of ex-Trump aides over the January 6 riots. Trump's lawyers are claiming executive privlege. Everything about this Grand Jury is sealed. Trump has been requesting people subpeoned not to testify.

Trump Loses It Over New York Lawsuit, Calls Letitia James ‘Racist’ – Rolling Stone

nikki mccann ramírez on Twitter: "Trump responds to the lawsuit from NY AG, calls Letitia James a “racist” and the investigation a “witch hunt” (pic link)" / Twitter
Another Witch Hunt by a racist Attorney General, Letitia James, who failed in her run for Governor, getting almost zero support from the public, and now is doing poorly against Law & Order A.G. candidate, highly respected Michael Henry. I never thought this case would be brought until I saw her really bad poll numbers. She is a fraud who campaigned on a "get Trump" platform, despite the fact that the city is one of the crime and murder disasters of the world under her watch!

nikki mccann ramírez on Twitter: "“Peekaboo” ? “Bye, Bye” ? (pic link)" / Twitter
Attorney General Letitia "Peekaboo" James, a total crime fighting disaster in New York, is spending all of her time fighting for very powerful and well represented banks and insurance companies, who were fully paid, made a lot of money, and never had a complaint about me, instead of fighting murder and violent crime, which is killing New York State. She is a failed A.G. whose lack of talent in the fight against crime is causing record numbers of people and companies to flee New York. Bye, bye!

He might mean:  Pickaninny - sometimes used as a racial slur.

Back to Rolling Stone.
“Letitia James is not working for the Attorney Generals office — she is working for the DNC,” Eric Trump, Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization, wrote in a tweet.

His brother and Trump Organization Executive Vice President Donald Trump Jr. added that “the bullshit Dem witch-hunt continues!”

Trump lawyer Alina Habba, who recently settled a lawsuit from a former employee that in part alleged Habba had referred to James as a “the black bitch” said in a Wednesday statement that “today’s filing is neither focused on the facts nor the law … rather, it is solely focused on advancing the attorney general’s political agenda.”

Letitia James and Donald Trump's history of clashes - BBC News
On the night she was elected in 2018, the former city councilwoman and public defender took aim at Mr Trump.

"He should know that we here in New York - and I, in particular - we are not scared of you," she warned.

She pledged to shine "a bright light into every dark corner of his real estate dealings, and every dealing, demanding truthfulness at every turn".

...
Her investigations into the highly influential National Rifle Association, the undercounting of Covid deaths in New York nursing homes, and accusations of sexual harassment against former New York governor and Democratic ally Andrew Cuomo, have earned her a national reputation.
Trump called her a "failed" attorney general after she dropped out of the NY governor's race of 2022.
Ms James shrugged off the insults, saying they had no bearing on her investigation or the potential outcome in court.

"Two judges have dismissed those claims of a witch hunt," she said at Wednesday's press conference in Manhattan. "So I give no credence to the names that he has referred to me."
He did a deposition last August, where she asked him lots of questions, and he invoked the Fifth Amendment, something that he earlier stated indicates guilt.
Mr Trump has argued that her previous comments, including when she referred to him as an "illegitimate president" during her run for attorney general, prove that has a political vendetta against him.

Comments she made at a debate in 2018 pledging to "focus on Donald Trump" and "follow his money" have also led Mr Trump's lawyers to claim political bias.
