“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
As former President Donald Trump has all-but declared he’s running for reelection in 2024, Democrats have signaled they plan to indict the Republican front-runner, according to U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
There’s even a way you can tell the indictments will be coming down, Cruz told interviewers this week.
The biggest “tell” that the Biden administration plans to take legal action against the 45th president is: The federal government has talked about indicting Hunter Biden.
As soon as the feds take legal action against the president’s son, “they want to say, ‘Look how even-handed we are,’” predicted Cruz, who is a former Solicitor General and a Harvard law graduate.
Meanwhile, Curz said they’re ignoring “significant and overwhelming evidence” that shows Hunter Biden — who reaped untold millions in kickbacks and sweetheart deals in Ukraine and China — was “actively involved in official corruption with his father, Joe Biden.”
Cruz is far from alone in believing the Left will bring down the heavy hammer on Trump in order to squelch his chances in 2024.
“I will very, very, very probably do it again,” Trump told a cheering crowd of thousands in Iowa on Thursday. As Trump salivates at the thought of running against the failed record of faltering President Joe Biden and his unpopular vice president, Kamala Harris, Democrats try to ease the lump in their throat by criminalizing political differences.
“A couple of weeks after the (midterm) election, I assume that (Attorney General Merrick) Garland will indict Trump,” a veteran Republican aide told The Hill, which reports Republicans are braced for legal action.
Former Attorney General William Barr said a month ago the Deep State is “getting very close to” hauling Trump into court.
“What will that do to the country? What kind of precedent will that set?” he asked. “I hope that those kinds of factors will incline the administration not to indict him,” he added. “I don’t want to see him indicted as a former president.”
A much-lesser-known Trump lawyer — with the historical name of Ty Cobb — said the odds the Biden administration indicts Trump are “very high” for what the government says were “the obstructive activity he took in connection with the Jan. 6 proceeding and the attempts to interfere in the election count.”
Meanwhile, the liberal media have been priming their readers for a coming court case for months.
“Donald Trump indictment may come ‘relatively soon,’” Newsweek told its readers, citing disgraced former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
The Atlantic told its tony readers to get ready for “The Inevitable Indictment of Donald Trump.”
Vox broke down “the major criminal investigations into Donald Trump” for its accepting, millennial audience.
“It’s Over: Trump Will Be Indicted,” roared The Daily Beast.
That wasn’t good enough for MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who practically guaranteed viewers that “Trump ‘Will Likely Be Indicted Between Now And 2024 More Than Once.’”
Reid aired that segment last year. Her words smack of the media’s guarantee that “the walls are closing in” throughout all four years of Trump’s presidency, beginning with the Russian collusion hoax and ending with his second failed impeachment.
In fact, a second Republican aide warned an indictment “could actually end up helping the [former] president politically.”
It remains to be seen whether American voters see this as justice, or see Trump as a victim.
If Garland decides not to indict Trump, the real danger to Joe Biden will be psychological. Biden will have to live with the knowledge that he’s a failure.
Donald Trump — who hasn’t held office in nearly two years, who has been banned from all major social media platforms and treated like a pariah by factions of his own party — can still draw tens of thousands of people everywhere he goes. Throngs that stretch for a mile in any direction come to hear the president speak, without notes, for hours at a time.

Joe Biden could never draw more than a handful of people during the few times his aides, handlers, and minders let him wander out of his Delaware basement. The allegedly cognitively impaired commander-in-chief struggles to read the carefully crafted words and ideas others wrote for him to obediently repeat.
Biden’s ego has spent five decades telling him that he alone has the intelligence, judgment, and insight to be president. For two years, he’s tried to exceed his predecessor on public health and economic performance, only to end up with a failed vaccine mandate and an undeclared recession.
Now, as Trump puts his toes at the starting gate of the campaign trail, Biden plans to jail the man critics say he can’t beat.
