Even as we wait for the Manhattan District Attorney and his grand jury to criminally indict Donald Trump, Trump is out there making social media posts depicting himself swinging a baseball bat at the District Attorney. Trump may have gotten away with this crap in other walks of life, but it doesn’t fly as a criminal defendant.
Respected legal expert Norm Eisen tweeted this relevant information:
Threatening a prosecutor is a crime in NY. In fact MULTIPLE crimes:
Harassment in the first degree NYPL 240.25;
menacing in the second degree NYPL 120.14;
stalking in the fourth or third degree NYPL 120.45 & 120.50
And that’s just for starters….
Political analyst George Conway said this of Trump’s post: “Interestingly, this is exactly the kind of post I would put on social media were I a target in a criminal investigation and I wanted to be denied bail.”
What Donald Trump doesn’t get, or is too far gone to care about, is that there are serious consequences for this kind of behavior while facing criminal indictment and trial. In the short term the judge overseeing the case could give Trump more restrictive bail conditions. And the District Attorney could well bring additional criminal charges against Trump for this kind of behavior.
