NY Times Haberman: Trump’s Wild Election Claims Are Going to Get Worse the Closer He Gets to Indictment
Donald Trump really enjoyed being president. He didn’t like the work, of course, but he loved the incredible power of the office. The role also provided him with something else incredibly important; immunity from prosecution.
And while the former president hasn’t been out of office very long, the law is coming quickly. While Trump is facing legal jeopardy in Georgia, words is that an indictment out of New York State could be coming soon. And according to Maggie Haberman, as the legal troubles get worse, so will Trump’s conspiracy theories.
The New York Times writer tweeted on Tuesday, “Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn’t how it works but simply sharing the information).”
When asked about those comments during an appearance on CNN’s New Day, Haberman expanded, “He’s been told by a number of advisers that he has to stop focusing on this. It is part of why he is so focused on these quote-unquote audits in Arizona — and why he’s been trying to get them in other states — because he thinks they’re going to overturn the election.”
The journalist continued, “I expect it to get more intense the more he is under investigation by the Manhattan district attorney and the state attorney general in New York.”
