Trump expects to be “reinstated” as president by August
Former President Donald Trump has reportedly told people that he expects to be reinstated in the White House by August. New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman revealed the information this morning. There is no constitutional basis to support Trump’s claim.
“It doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It happened when he faced the possibility of prosecution by the Manhattan Attorney’s Office, ”noted Haberman.
It doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It comes when he was exposed to the possibility of indictment by the Manhattan Attorney’s Office.

Last week, the Manhattan prosecutor convened a grand jury that is expected to decide whether Trump, his company’s executives, or the Trump organization itself should be indicted should prosecutors bring criminal charges to the panel.
Trump has criticized the body’s establishment as an example of partisan drudgery and reiterated his lies about the integrity of the 2020 general election, which he has repeatedly labeled as fraudulent despite evidence to the contrary.
“This is purely political and an affront to the nearly 75 million voters who backed me in the presidential election and it’s being pushed by very partisan Democratic prosecutors,” Trump said in a statement last week. “Our country is broken, our elections are rigged, corrupt and stolen, our prosecutors are politicized, and I just have to keep fighting like I’ve done for the past five years!”
Haberman shared the information as controversy swirled over Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser. Flynn appeared to support overthrowing the US government.
“No reason, I mean it should happen here. No reason. That’s right, ”Flynn replied to a spectator at an event in Dallas who asked whether a coup was dissimilar to the one in Myanmar in February.
Attorney Sidney Powell, who has represented Flynn in the past, insisted that Flynn did not encouraged “any act of violence or military insurrection”. She attributed the uproar over Flynn’s comments to media distortions. A Flynn Parler account later claimed that his comments were taken out of context.
“Let me be VERY CLEAR – there is NO reason for a coup in America, and I have not and at no time have called for such action,” the message reads.
