This is some interesting case and funny why it is hitting up like this when we are nearing the the race for campaigns to the 2024 presidential candidates selection.I think the Blues are afraid of the Red and Trump.These in in my case are trumped up allegations.Actually Trump has quite some legal battles that are ahead of him.Thank goodness he is winning some.

NB:I am just a keen follower of news and my comment is barely on personal opinion and expression and in no way does it reflect that i have a particular preference of any American presidential candidate nor am i affilliated in any way to the Right or the left.
