    After pleading not guilty to criminal charges in New York, former President Donald Trump returned to his home in Florida and got right back to attacking the prosecutor who got him indicted.

    Standing before family and supporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort on Tuesday night, Trump called Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg a "criminal" who should be prosecuted or at the very least resign over claims that he "illegally leaked" grand jury information before Trump's arraignment.

    Trump also repeated claims that the judge in the Manhattan case - acting New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan - is a "Trump hating judge." And he again raised concerns about the judge's family, including his daughter, whose firm has boasted of doing work for the campaigns of top Democrats, including President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

    Earlier in the day, Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records as part of what Bragg, a Democrat, alleged to be a "catch-and-kill" scheme to influence the 2016 election. In addition, the judge warned against rhetoric that could stoke civil unrest. Trump is not due back in court until December.

    Reports are already coming out with estimates that Trump could be sentenced to more than 100 years in prison if he is convicted. There is also debate about the strength of Bragg's case, and it's not just Trump's allies who see issues with it.

    "I believe President Trump's character and conduct make him unfit for office," said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) in a statement. "Even so, I believe the New York prosecutor has stretched to reach felony criminal charges in order to fit a political agenda."

    The former president, who is running a third campaign for the White House, did not stop with the Manhattan case. He attacked others who are investigating him.

    Among the targets of his ire were special counsel Jack Smith, Georgia's Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, New York Attorney General Letitia James, and the FBI.

    "Our justice system has become lawless. They are using it now, in addition to everything else, to win elections," Trump said.

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.

Considering what many of the most revered legal experts of this age consider a political persecution by the infamous and ignoble New York District Attorney Alvan Bragg: Should the historic, unprecedented indictment of 45th President Donald Trump be considered as a benefit, or a liability to the sustainability of OUR Constitutional Republic?
  Liability, our nation is in peril, as we are losing our "Rule of Law" integrity.
  Benefit, losing our "Rule of Law" integrity is secondary to destroying Donald Trump.
  I mostly worry about losing my Tik Tok.
