Will the Access Hollywood tape finally bring some consequences to the “grab ’em by the pussy” and “if you’re famous you can do anything” guy?
Oh, and T**** gets an invitation to appear before the Manhattan grand jury next week. I hope that makes up for the humiliation of all the Fox
News “Entertainers” aka Fox Bloviators” saying they think he’s full of shit and they always have.
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee, Donald
…and the tolling has begun. https://t.co/0XR8L2RNqV

From the NYT link:
The Manhattan district attorney’s office recently signaled to Donald J. Trump’s lawyers that he could face criminal charges for his role in the payment of hush money to a porn star, the strongest indication yet that prosecutors are nearing an indictment of the former president, according to four people with knowledge of the matter.
The prosecutors offered Mr. Trump the chance to testify next week before the grand jury that has been hearing evidence in the potential case, the people said. Such offers almost always indicate an indictment is close; it would be unusual for the district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, to notify a potential defendant without ultimately seeking charges against him.
In New York, potential defendants have the right to answer questions in the grand jury before they are indicted, but they rarely testify, and Mr. Trump is likely to decline the offer. His lawyers could also meet privately with the prosecutors in hopes of fending off criminal charges.
All the best, Donald, really.
Totally open thread.
