Trump’s FIFTH Indictment Could Be Coming From New State

Even corporate media has reported that the indictments that have slammed President Donald J. Trump are largely for political theater and will have almost no impact on Republican primary voters.

Most people see the drama as a convenience for the Democrats and opponents of Trump:

According to a recent  AP report, After every new indictment, Donald Trump has boasted that his standing among Republicans only improves — and he has a point.

Nearly two-thirds of Republicans — 63% — now say they want the former president to run again, according to new polling from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. That’s up slightly from the 55% who said the same in April when Trump began facing a series of criminal charges. Seven in 10 Republicans now have a favorable opinion of Trump, an uptick from the 60% who said so two months ago.

But in a crucial warning sign for the former president and his supporters, Trump faces glaring vulnerabilities heading into a general election, with many Americans strongly dug in against him. While most Republicans — 74% — say they would support him in November 2024, 53% of Americans say they would definitely not support him if he is the nominee. Another 11% say they would probably not support him in November 2024.

Yet the indictments are still lining up, and there may be a new one on the horizon, according to more media reports.

“Donald Trump has been indicted again in the Georgia 2020 election probe. It’s the fourth indictment against the former president, who is running to reclaim this old job next year. These legal actions have had zero impact on his standing in the polls; Trump remains comfortably in the lead as the GOP frontrunner. Yet, given that he’s facing nearly 100 charges and with the forces stacked against him, it’s hard to see how Trump walks away from these trials unscathed,” Townhall reported, adding:

“He’ll likely be convicted of something, setting the stage for a January 6-like event on steroids. And Democrats are only too happy to bait conservatives on that front. But that’s for another time. We need to revisit this legal circus because it might not be over. Could there be a fifth indictment looming? Since the Georgia indictment, all eyes have turned to Arizona, where Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs has called for an investigation over the 2020 election. ”

KTAR News reported more details:

Gov. Katie Hobbs said Tuesday that Arizona should press charges against former president Donald Trump over potential election interference in the 2020 election.

Hobbs told reporters at an event in Phoenix that Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes should follow suit with Georgia, which indicted Trump on Monday.

“Absolutely. I have been an advocate for holding folks involved in trying to overturn the will of the voters in the 2020 election accountable and this is part of that process,” Hobbs, a Democrat, said.

Arizona had several mentions in the indictment, including meetings with Trump allies and lawmakers in the state following his loss to Joe Biden in November 2020.

Even former Republican Arizona governors think some action will arise. The state’s attorney general is already looking into the fake elector scheme (via Fox10 Phoenix):

Video shows Arizona’s fake electors, including former Arizona GOP chair, Kelli Ward, and state lawmakers Anthony Kern and Jake Hoffman, signing false electoral college documents declaring Trump the winner of the 2020 election.

Arizona’s Attorney General is currently investigating, and Governor Katie Hobbs says she hopes to see Arizona’s fake electors face criminal charges.

“I do. I do believe our attorney general is going to move forward on some kind of disciplinary action,” Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said.

Former Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said, “I am concerned about continuing indictments. I think we’re on number four. I’m concerned about how this is going to affect the electorate, the respect for the rule of law, and equal justice.”

Trump and 18 allies were indicted in Georgia over their efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss in the state, with prosecutors using a statute normally associated with mobsters to accuse the former president, lawyers and other aides of a “criminal enterprise” to keep him in power.

Arizona had several mentions in the indictment, including meetings with Trump allies and lawmakers in the state following his loss to Joe Biden in November 2020.

Hobbs was Arizona’s Secretary of State then and the position oversees elections.

Biden won Arizona’s 11 electoral votes in 2020 by less than a percentage, the first time a Democrat won the Grand Canyon State on the presidential level since 1996.

“Accountability is critical. I don’t think we’re going to change direction until there’s accountability at the top level,” Hobbs said in response to a question about the charges leveled against Trump.

“And this is an important step forward that I think should move forward and play out in the legal process.”

The Georgia indictment bookends a remarkable crush of criminal cases — four in five months, each in a different city — for Trump, who is simultaneously balancing the roles of the criminal defendant and presidential candidate.
