News of former President Trump possibly being indicted continues to emerge. Right now, the prosecution is alleging that Trump broke campaign finance law in 2016 by using his campaign funds to pay off Stormy Daniels over an alleged affair.
Trump has denied ever having an affair with Daniels. The former president also maintains that he’s being unfairly targeted by those waging a witch hunt. Supporters of Trump likewise share the view that the legal action being taken against him is more about politics than the law.
Though as all this plays out, there are looming debates about what impacts it’ll have on Trump’s 2024 presidential election campaign, per Breitbart News.
Many supporters of the former president believe that what the prosecution is doing will actually make Trump stronger. The theory here is that GOP voters will rally around Trump, amid what many have described as a flimsy legal case.
The prosecution is also being accused of trying to sabotage the former president with large donors. The school of thought here is that large donors may be less inclined to back an indicted Trump over other Republicans running in the 2024 election.
Of course the biggest problem with a Bragg indictment for Trump is that since this would be the first ever indictment of a former president, the fact it is for such a ticky-tack, semi-manufactured felony is really a bad look for Bragg and the Democrats.
Guilty or no, it looks…

However, the former president’s base of grassroots loyalists isn’t very likely to jump ship, amid the possible indictment.
The Court of Public Opinion
The prosecution focusing on Trump is forced to contend with the court of public opinion, much of which is against the indictment. It’s been slammed by critics as a naked abuse of power with a rogue DA putting partisan politics above the rule of law.
.@RepMattGaetz tells @ABonTV that he believes former President Donald Trump will come out “stronger” after a potential indictment, but that it will also be a “sad day for the country and one that America will pay for for a long time.”#MorninginAmerica: https://t.co/nn4Fieio4F pic.twitter.com/U8EPJFTX9o

Supporters of Trump specifically warn the powers that be will keep coming after him, regardless of whether they have a serious case with any standing.
In the event of a Trump indictment, there may also be protests and various demonstrations from those who are convinced this is nothing more than a hitjob and witch hunt.
