Remanded to Guantanamo Bay
Former President Donald J. Trump was remanded to the US detention camp at Guantanamo Bay as he awaits multiple trials in state and federal courts. Trump is the first American citizen since Yaser Asam Hamdi (who was deported in 2004 after agreeing to renounce his US citizenship) to be sent to the camp best known for indefinite detainments, without trial, of those suspected of aiding the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. Pundits called it “ironic”, as Trump had signed an Executive Order to keep the camp open “indefinitely” in 2018 after his predecessor, Barack Obama, had reduced the prison population and vowed to close the facility. Trump is being held as he awaits multiple trials in several jurisdictions. Federal spokespeople declined comment on the record. One official, granted anonymity, indicated that the former president has been deemed an “imminent threat” to US sovereignty due to his multiple calls for the overthrow of both federal and state governments and his continuing barely-cloaked calls for violence from his devotees.
RICO Act charges
Georgia, one of seven states to have state versions of the federal RICO (Racketeering-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) Act, has indicted former President Donald J Trump under their RICO Act for his attempt to overturn Georgia’s results in the 2020 Presidential election, when he famously called on the Secretary of State to “find” additional votes for him in order to reverse the election result. A trial date is expected to be set in the coming weeks.
TFG begins sentence
Former President Donald J. Trump became the first ex-president to report to prison today, as he begins serving his sentence for bribery, misuse of campaign funds, and tax evasion, all related to his payment of hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump vowed to overthrow the government of New York as he was carted off to begin his sentence at Attica State Prison. Trump becomes the first former president imprisoned for his crimes.
The jury has returned a verdict in the second New York trial of former president Donald J. Trump. He has been found guilty of fraud and tax evasion related to his New York real estate empire. Trump was found guilty on 27 counts of overstating the value of commercial properties in order to obtain loans fraudulently. He was also convicted on 42 counts of understating property values in order to evade taxes. Sentencing is scheduled for June 3. It is not known if he will also face federal tax evasion charges.
Former President Donald J. Trump escaped conviction on charges of treason for his incitement of the January 6, 2021 insurrection. He would have been the first person convicted of treason in the US since Tomoya Kawakita in 1952. Kawakita was sentenced to death, but the sentence was commuted to life in prison by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Kawakita was subsequently released by President John F. Kennedy just one month before Kennedy’s assassination by Lee Harvey Oswald in November, 1963. Kawakita was deported and banned from returning to the US for the remainder of his life.
While Mr. Trump was acquitted of treason charges, he was convicted of inciting to riot and seditious conspiracy for his leadership of an armed insurrection. While Trump was never accused of taking up arms himself (he notoriously escaped the military draft in 1968 due to a diagnosis of bone spurs in his feet), he was recorded telling his followers to “fight like hell” and, in a second attempt to overthrow the US government, urged his followers to “take our nation back” after calling for “termination” of the US Constitution. He subsequently stated to his acolytes, “I am your warrior…I am your retribution.” Sentencing date for the incitement and sedition charges is pending.
It is not known if Trump will face additional treason charges for his latest calls to overthrow the US Government.
“I am the Greatest”
At the time that news of djt’s permanent exemption from the military draft was made public, Mr. Trump told an interviewer that, prior to the diagnosis, he was “the best baseball player in New York”. That status continued until he was replaced by Congressman George Santos, who is now universally acclaimed as “the best baseball player in New York”. Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, and Mickey Mantle were among those unavailable for comment.
