Trump's Entire Life Just Got Turned Upside Down - Ring of Fire

On Thursday, the Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Donald Trump, and reports say that the currently-sealed indictment contains at least 30 different counts. This is a lot more than just a simple hush money payment, and could indicate that the District Attorney actually hit him with the financial crimes that the office had last year. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains what's happening.

Nobody likes being wrong. But in this particular instance, I gotta say, I'm glad that I got this one wrong because yesterday, just hours after I had posted a video saying, Alvin Bragg is not gonna indict Trump, he's a coward. It turns out the grand jury did vote to indict Donald Trump. And here's the kicker. As far as we know, according to sources, close to the investigation reported by C N N, there's more than 30 counts in this sealed indictment, which means this goes far beyond just a hush money payment to Stormy Daniels. See, look at it this way. Even if you had the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels combined with the falsification of business records, at most, you could probably stretch that into six, seven, maybe eight different charges. If you're really, really clever, you know, obviously you've got the campaign finance violation, you've got the falsification of records, you could probably throw in a couple different kinds of fraud, possibly wire fraud, bank fraud, maybe tax fraud.

If you wrote off that legal expense, that was actually the reimbursement for the hush money payment, you might be able to grab another one or two charges off that, but that's about it. So that may account for, let's say, generously eight charges, right? All right, well you still got 22 other charges. So what are they? Now, obviously there's a ton of speculation at this point because the indictment is still sealed, so we don't know. But if you've got, you know, 22, maybe 25, maybe 28 additional charges not related to Stormy Daniels or the falsification of the business records to hide the reimbursement, then Brad went big. He went bigger than any of us, especially me, thought he would go. It's likely, likely that he may be going after all of the other business fraud that, uh, Pomerance and CVA were ready to prosecute for last year.

As I've repeatedly said, Pomerance told us those indictments were already written, they were ready to file them and they never did. So possibly Bragg said, you know what? I'm getting kind of about what's happening. I got these other indictments here. Let's go ahead and throw those into, that's a possibility. The hush money payment to Karen McDougle, uh, you know, the catch and kill story involving David Pecker, who by the way did testify those could be in these charges. These charges could span literally every horrible thing that Trump has done in New York. Both hush money payments, the payoff, the catch and kill, the business, uh, uh, issues,

You know, the fraud that the business was already convicted for Trump and his kids are having a civil trial later this year. So this is massive and we won't actually have to wait too long before we find out what these charges are. Donald Trump is expected, you know, take that with a grain of salt to turn himself in on Tuesday. Now, originally, according to reports out this morning, his defense lawyer said that prosecutors wanted him to turn himself in today. But when he goes and turns himself in, shows up in court for the arraignment, that is when the charges will be read to him. So whenever that happens, if it happens later today, if it happens Tuesday, that's when the world will know what these charges are against Donald Trump.
