    Former President Donald Trump responded on Thursday to being indicted by a Manhattan grand jury by saying that the case was an example of political persecution and election interference.

    The New York Times reported that the felony indictment over his alleged $130,000 hush money payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels was filed under seal by the Manhattan district attorney's office.

    The indictment will be announced in the coming days and Trump will be compelled to surrender and face arraignment, according to the report. The former president is now the first former president in U.S. history to ever face criminal charges.

    "This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history," Trump said. "From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats - the enemy of the hard-working men and women of this Country - have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement."

    A couple of the examples of political persecution that Trump mentioned in his statement were the investigations into his campaign's ties to Russia and his first impeachment.

    "The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to 'Get Trump,' but now they've done the unthinkable - indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference," Trump claimed. "Never before in our Nation's history has this been done."

    Trump claimed that Democrats "have cheated countless times over the decades" and that they have weaponized law enforcement agencies to go after him.

    "Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who was hand-picked and funded by George Soros, is a disgrace," Trump said. "Rather than stopping the unprecedented crime wave taking over New York City, he's doing Joe Biden's dirty work, ignoring the murders and burglaries and assaults he should be focused on. This is how Bragg spends his time!"

    Trump predicted that he believes that "this Witch-Hunt" will backfire on the Democrats.

    The lead prosecutors in the case met with the grand jury on Thursday and read them the criminal statutes before they voted. A few hours later the prosecutors walked into the court clerk's office and began filing the indictment.

    The news comes as The Wall Street Journal reported that District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office has started examining an alleged $150,000 payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Was it a judicious ploy for Joe Biden's FBI to execute the unprecedented raid of President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate?
  Yes; the Cheneys despise this former Republican president, and for good reason ... so they say.
  No; never has a former president been treated with this level of vindictive abuse by those temporarily in power.
  Who cares? It's Trump.
