For weeks now, there has been rampant speculation as to just how much trouble Donald Trump himself might be in back in Manhattan.
That’s because the local district attorney has been pursuing a rather weighty case against the Trump Organization, with a number of potential financial crimes currently being probed.
For his part, Donald Trump has completely denied that any wrongdoing had occurred, and referred to the ongoing investigation as a “witch hunt”.
Now, the Manhattan DA is admitting that he has no plans to charge Trump any time soon.

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance has indicated he does not currently plan to charge the Trump Organization with crimes related to allegations of “hush money” payments and real estate value manipulations, according to a personal lawyer for Donald Trump.
Ronald Fischetti, a New York attorney who represents the former president, said on Monday that in a meeting last week, he asked Vance’s team for details on charges they were considering.
According to Fischetti, members of Vance’s team said they were considering bringing charges against the Trump Organization and its individual employees related to alleged failures to pay taxes on corporate benefits and perks. It has been widely reported that those perks included cars and apartments and appear to only involve a small number of executives.
Fischetti was soon a bit shocked.
“We asked, ‘Is there anything else?’” Fischetti told POLITICO. “They said, ‘No.’”
“It’s crazy that that’s all they had,” he added.
It appears that, for now, Trump has escaped yet another witch hunt without so much as a scratch.
As If The Matt Gaetz Case Couldn’t Get Any Weirder…
This case has more twists and turns than snake convention.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has done something astounding during his brief career in politics: Come up with a scandal so bizarre that Hollywood would have deemed a fictional re-telling of the tale “too unbelievable”. The story so far, (which has been evolving in perpetuity), is that Gaetz and a friend had participated in the trafficking of underage girls for sex, (albeit unknowingly), and that this story came to light after Gaetz was unable to help an extortionist search for a long-missing FBI agent. Or something thereabouts. The accounts vary wildly in the case. Now, as if things couldn’t get any stranger, a new angle has emerged in the case. A sugar daddy website linked to the sex-trafficking investigation of Matt Gaetz publicly weighed in on the scandal, saying the lawmaker has never been registered on the site in search of young women. The unusual move by the web site SeekingArrangement puts some distance between Gaetz and the accusation against him. The site had been caught up in the Gaetz case because it had reportedly been used by the GOP lawmaker and another key player in the case to connect with an underage girl for sex. SeekingArrangement, which helps “sugar babies” connect online with men, released a statement because of yet another odd twist in the case: The former mistress of golfer Tiger Woods sued the website claiming it wrongfully terminated her contract as the company’s spokesperson. The plaintiff, Rachel Uchitel, said she was fired because SeekingArrangement was in damage control due to the investigation into Gaetz, which is unrelated to her lawsuit. Gaetz has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal, but a plea deal from one of his alleged accomplices has some wondering if the Sunshine State lawmaker isn’t in some serious trouble.
Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty
The former President was NOT happy!
Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing. Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.
