A whole lot has gone down in Trump world here lately. After spending pretty much his entire life (I’m guessing he wasn’t all that criminal as a small child, but who really knows) managing to skirt any real accountability or consequences for his numerous… Numerous crimes, Donald Trump is finally staring down the barrel of some pretty serious tax evasion charges. And the cookie has already begun to crumble on him.
Earlier this week, the Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer, who has been with the company since the days of Donald’s father Fred, was indicted on a staggering 15 charges in connection to the investigation against the Trump family business and ultimately surrendered himself to authorities who later that day “perp walked” him into a Manhattan courtroom, in handcuffs, where he pleaded not guilty to every single charge against him.
In addition to Weisselberg’s charges, indictments were made against the Trump Organization as a whole as well.
Many people believe that these charges are just the tip of a much larger iceberg that will undoubtedly encompass the disgraced former president before it’s all said and done, while others are starting to worry that this will yet again be another instance where Donald Trump manages to barely skirt by justice.

However, if prosecutors with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office were turned in to tonight’s MAGA rally, their jobs may have just gotten a lot easier when it comes to finally taking down Donald Trump.
During tonight’s big Fourth of July rally in Sarasota, Florida, Trump just couldn’t resist the urge to ramble about the investigation and indictments. And, according to one political journalist, he may have just screwed himself in the worst kind of way.
“You didn’t pay tax on the car or a company apartment… You didn’t pay tax, or education for your grandchildren — I, don’t even know what do you have to put? Does anybody know the answer to that stuff?” Trump ranted during the rally as he seemingly talked about the crimes that he feels are worst than tax evasion, funnily enough, harping on pretty much the exact charges that his CFO was indicted on.
White House and Congressional reporter Andrew Feinberg seems to think that’s an admission of guilt…

Crimes are crimes, Donald. It doesn’t matter if you think there are worse ones than yours. It doesn’t matter if you think everyone does it so it shouldn’t be a big deal. You should’ve just kept your mouth shut.
