Mary Trump: Donald ‘Will Turn On Everybody’ If He’s Indicted

We are now closer to seeing disgraced, one-term former president Donald Trump indicted than at any time since he first decided to run for the White House back in 2015.

From investigations in Georgia, New York and from the January 6 House Select Committee, along with the Justice Department, Trump is under the microscope wherever he looks, leaving many legal experts to predict that the bar of justice is about to catch up with the ex-president.

But what happens if indeed Trump is hit with one or more criminal indictments? That was the question posed to his niece, Mary Trump, by talk show host Thom Hartmann:

“What in your opinion? I mean, you know, your uncle probably better than anybody else. And you have the added advantage of a study in psychology, which I believe provides you with a lot of insights into human nature that many of the rest of us may lack. What should we expect if Donald Trump is indicted?”

She responded:

“We should expect a full court press, by him and everybody in his orbit, to change the subject, muddy the waters, deflect, project, cast blame on everybody from the the lowliest of White House aides on up. He will not take it lying down and he will engage everybody who continues to be a hanger-on to do his bidding. And that’s partially why we’re here, right? I mean, Donald didn’t do this by himself. He was enabled at every turn from people in his inner circle, everybody in the executive branch, and almost the entirety of the Republican Party.”

That led Hartmann to ask this follow-up:

“So do you think he’s going to be spraying his fire, as it were, at his enemies, or what he views as the people who might have thwarted his efforts? I mean, even within his own circle, like Pat Cipollone, who is not on his side on this thing, apparently. Or is he going to, is he going to turn on the people who were with him, you know, the Jim Jordans and Marjorie Taylor Green’s and whatnot, the people who essentially failed in pulling this thing off.”

The former president’s niece replied:

 “I think he’s going to turn on everybody. I think he’s, as we’ve seen, his circle is getting smaller and smaller by the controversy. So I think there will be very few people left standing.”

No one will be safe. Donald will even toss his beloved Ivanka right under the bus to save his own ass. How ironic would it be if Donald Trump winds up causing the complete destruction of his own family?
